Last weekend our LUG (Brikkelauget) displayed at LEGO Norway's 50 year anniversary event. Quarryman and I thought it would be fun to make a Fabuland layout for this, and so we did. Unfortunetaly, other projects (a mountain for instance...) got in the way of building time for this, so this still has to be considered a work in progress, but hopefully, we'll have a more detailed layout ready for our next event. So here are some pictures of what we were able to put together at the event :sweet:

Quarryman's tree house:

My bank in the background, Peppermint's croc chopper in front:

My school (next to my red house):

Lionel driving past Quarryman's tavern:

My yellow submarine, with a familiar inhabitant:

My riverside croc brother's cabin:

My little mouse hole for Maurice in Quarryman's Burp Hill:

And here comes Quarryman's monorail:

Thanks so much to Peppermint for lending us her croc chopper and Lionel's ride :sweet:.

And before anyone comments on that: yes, the ramps to get across the monorail on the road are a bit steep, but they were very hastily added at the last minute, because no ramp would have looked even stupider :tongue:... And I wasn't prepared at all for Quarryman putting the lower level of the monorail two bricks above ground, and not having prepared a suitable ramp :laugh:.

Additional pics can be viewed in my flickr. I can see that I should have taken more pics from different angles, but I was so busy running back and forth between this and my mountain to keep the kids from knocking things over and derailing the trains, and to fix all the disasters they caused, that I didn't remember to take any more pictures...

Fantastic layout :thumbup:

I saw your layout at the exhibition in Oslo and I was very impressed.
Fabuland figures are very cute. It's nice to see them used in a layout.

Wow, this is so cute!  I need to get some Fabuland stuff, and the colors on that train, perfect!  :thumbup:

I have a sudden desire to build with my monorail stuff. :tongue:

This is nice layout. I haven't seen anything like this before (no such size Fabuland scene). My favourite is the yellow submarine (wonder why :blush:  it reminds me of great band).

Really great, thanks.  I guess the submarine is my favorite but it's hard to choose for sure.

This is fabulous.   Using the dino set figures for a playground is a neat idea.

It's a nice start and with some extra time I am sure it will grow into a beautiful layout.

They are indeed very cute :sweet:. It was fun hearing the children exclaim things like "look mum, it's just like your old LEGO!" :laugh:

I haven't seen many such Fabuland scenes either, it's a really fun thing to do though :sweet:. And we all live in yellow submarines, don't we? :wink:

Thank you :sweet:. Next chance for displaying this will be in April, so hopefully we'll both have some time to make updates for then.
