[MOC] Transport Terminal

Recommended Posts

What could a brick separator do other than separating Lego bricks? Make it into a Transport Terminal!

Design:

V-shape shelter design provide shade and shield Lego minifigures from rain, and yet provides sufficient clearance for the all Lego city trains and buses. 2-way train platform design allows for trains to travel in 2 directions.

Playability:

Transport Terminal provides flexibility in switching play between train or bus station. When the platform is removed, train structure turns into a bus station. They also can be connected with one another to form a longer train/bus station. This meets the need for a longer platform when multiple trains cars are connected. As illustrated in the pictures, several modules can be connected via 3 x connecting pins at black base frame and 2 x technic liftarm on the brick separators at the module ends.

Hope this gives you some ideas on how to use up your brick separators. Everything is awesome! :)

Top can be removed, and turns into a bus station.

Agree. Is just perfect. Well done.

This is really brilliant and healthy unconventional.The orange works pretty well for a public-transport colour and with the clean design. :classic: :thumbup:

That´s probably the nicest use of the brick seperator I´ve ever seen.
Also the fact that one can easily turn this into a bus station instead of an passenger terminal is genious and  could brilliantly easy be an official LEGO set.
Greatly excecuted as well, look´s awesome. 

Yeah love it ! :wub:

 Very clever.  I had used them as roof trusses in a modular arcade, but this beats that hands down.

I love this! Great idea and due to the parts can probably be bricklinked pretty cheap!

You are right! For the first time, I have run out of brick separators. :)

Fantanstic job. Very clever use of the brick separators.

Bus/train station is a great idea.

Would love to use this idea for a bus stop, problem is all my brick breakers have damaged ends ;) Plates stacked together in PAB cups wreak havoc on them...

As everyone else has said, a clever simple design and great use of brick seperators. It would be interesting to see a large transport hub which integrates this Modular design. Just a stroke of genius, the sort of clean simple design that makes you wonder why nobody thought of using them in this way before.

Hi! Yes me too, I really love how it works, but on a bigger scale, I'd have to see it again.. How about a train station with 2 Horizon Express, would you make it "just" longer or would you add more details? Many thanks again for sharing, looks great!

I love the modularity between bus station and train station! Do you have a bus station 'docking point' build somewhere in your city that has a similar connection point to the train base?
