Here I present a modular railway station accompanied by a high-speed train.

Railway station
[ New version ]

The station consists of a main building and three platform sections.

High speed train

This large scale train was designed to fit standard Lego track curves although it may look strange when it turns.
The train has the following power functions:
  • Motorized bogie.
  • Head lights.
  • M-motor for automatic doors.
As there is only one IR receiver, the lights and the train motor are connected to the same channel so that the lights are turned on only when the train is moving.

Thank you for your attention!

Awesome train station! I love the detail you put into everything. (inlcuding the reactor / computer systems) The bas-relief Emerald Night has got to my favorite part... but the evil computer controlled train is very close behind!

Keep up the good work!

EDIT: You put the a Lord of the Rings passage in the infromation sign! I think that sign just bumped the Emerald Night from my top favorite spot!

Wow, man, wow.

I'm blown away and so jealous of your beautiful creation. I could write thousands of words of praise and really should but it's late so please accept my WOW.

That is fantastic!  It's the best Modular Station I think I've seen - it's obvious so much thought has gone into the detail that you created.  

Thank you for sharing it with us!  

Oh and that Reactor Core was an unexpected pleasant surprise...

Fantastic in both scope and detail. The seamless connection from street to platforms though the building is excellent, the ability to open it all up to reveal the juicy interior details is well done and to top it off you've made an attractive and technically brilliant train to go with it! Beautifully executed!

Indeed a great train station with lots of details - and a great train too with its rounded sides. :thumbup:

Amazing, just flat out amazing!  So much detail in such a large project.  With each photo I saw I thought it could not get any better, but it did, each photo seemed to contain more amazing details than the previous.

As a previous poster said that he could write thousands of words, I am not sure I can find all the words necessary.

Among my favorite details is the Emerald Night, but there are just so many, many.

Thanks for sharing this, it gives us something to strive to.

This is beautiful. Along with its beauty it is fully compatible with the modulars with the track parallel to the street. The details are fantastic and it has a nice historic feel. And your high speed train is amazing. And thats something, coming from me. (Im a steam person btw)

Congratulations on the the wonderful build. :wub: Love the modular layout, is great for all of us to see in case we get inspired to try just a simplified version of your marvellous creation.
Are there any instructions available?
Love the details too, don't get to see information like that at my local ticket office, usually not as gripping :grin:

While I like LEGO trains and own a fair few of them, I don't really know all that much about real trains and therefore don't really comment a lot in this part of the forum. But this is just so impressive that it's impossible to ignore it. Your station is lovely to look at and has very appealing architectural features, a wonderfully detailed interior, and even a great train (albeit an evil one) to go along with it. As eurotrash said: It's obvious how much thought must have gone into creating all this. I'm truly impressed. Well done!

The station is really full of details, looks reallu really good and reallistic. It has everything of a real train station and really takes you into the universe of it!
I also really like your train even if i'm not a 8 studs wide man! The rounded shape fits it really really good and the interior really looks like a real train interior . And details are amazing like the little door to access the batery box!
Congrats for this awsome MOC!!!
