CP Arco Coaches -1:45 Scale

Recommended Posts

CP Comboios de Portugal bought some old coaches to RENFE am then they refurbished them.

They are not in commercial service yet, still doing some homologation tests, however, I like the color scheme they did, so I try to recreate them in Lego.


1 first class(blue), plus 2 second class(red) coaches with:

  • neodymium magnets (not LEGO)
  • each coach has around 1KG, so, no interior
  • 8Wide
  • 60cm long
  • working tail lights (not LEGO)
  • bearings (not LEGO)
  • they can take only r104 (or more) curves
  • around 1500 parts each
  • custom vinyl decals

PS: The locomotive will have his own topic later :)

Wow, that's a seriously impressive level of detail. Those bogies! And the door details!

Exceptional work recreating these coaches. The teaser on how you accomplished the chevrons is mind boggling. The bogies are great as others mentioned, and the ends are wonderful. Another perfect MOC.

I'm in total agreement with the other comments. The first thing I noticed was the detail on the bogies and then the brick-built paint job.

@Sérgio one needs to look cerefully to see if it Is the real deal or your LEGO variety (the tracks give it away but apart from that...). Nice addition for the already great locomotive!

Beautiful carriages @Sérgio, love the brick built colour scheme and the curvature of the roof! I'd love to see more of what's going on behind the scenes with those 3L bar connections, but understandable if you want to keep an air of mystery about it of course too :)

Very much looking forward to the post about the loco too.
