  1. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We have done the test runs, and it was succesful. She can handle all the standart geometry tracks, but looks much better on r72 curves and r104 switches. Not a fast one, but there is room for impovement (there is enough room to change the M motors to L, more horsepower might bring higher speed) Waiting for the missing parts...
  2. Heyy, it's a good idea! I tried to redesign the buffer area, but the brick built buffers seems weird. The problem is the scale. The 2*2 round tile represents about 85 cm diameter, but the real ones are way smaller. I think that brick built buffers are seem good in 9W or bigger models.
  3. Yesss, it's a Nohab di3. These locos used to pull the holiday trains near Lake Balaton in my childhood and became an icon in Hungary. Some of them were renovated, and can be seen at Hungarian Railway Museum. There wasn't much progress (busy weekend), but the bogies are done. 199 parts each. Next step is the assembling, and doing some tests on the track.
  4. An earlier draft. The real built is at this phase...almost.
  5. Nice guess as the two locos are similar. Have You got a link to your design? Sooo, the bogies are ready (structurally, but I need to add some details later). There was some progress in the building also. Step 2: boat with some strange bogies :)
  6. :) It's funny, but that is not a boat of course. But I must admit, it's ship shape thing (at first sight). I have to add some details to prove that it's a loco :)
  7. Hello! This is my first design which modelling a real one. (to have some fun: free to guess, what was the original) Width: 7 studs and 1 plate, Length : 50 studs Drive: 2 PF m motor. (3 axle bogies, 2 driven) First step: final version (?) of the base with some details:

    (MOC){WIP} Station

    Hello I like to share some pictures of my new station. Still a WIP, but shaping good. Based on 80*96 studs (without the main stairs). Modular built: Consumes about 5-6000 pieces, but I am working on the inner things, so it will be more. Tomorrow I am going to take better pics in better light conditions. Till then here are some more pics in twilight mood.
  9. I'm really happy, You (and your son, of course) like my terminal crane. It was a brick by brick built, sadly there is no any digital asset for it. I planned to make LDD file, and - it seems the time has come - I will do it. But at first I have to finish my current work:
  10. Yes, I did. I was so excited and fully forget the rule on Ideas: only Lego parts can be used. Most sites/places the Big Ben Wheels are accepted, but on Ideas it isn't. After I realized it , contacted with the support, and asked to remove the project. I am so sad especially because she received 500 suppots in five days, so she would have made it to 10000. Very sorry...
  11. She is on ideas now. Please support if You like ! :)
  12. Thank You! Train projects don't receive many votes on ideas, but maybe it's worth to try. Should I try it? Opinions?
  13. Thanks for the appreciative words, I'm very happy about! I'll try to raise the cab's roof with 1 or 2 plates. Sadly not possible to make the tender lower because of the the AA battery box (it's really big).
  14. Hello I like to share the result of Spark Industries' new side project. The company produces modern locos and cars, but wants to salute the old times. So designed a steam engine with enthusiasm and love. She is a 4-6-4 Hudson type loco: There wasn't a particular real loco for modelling, but the main shape based on Canadian Pacific 2816 and Union Pacific 844. She looks best on bigger turning radius, but deals with the standart lego curve and switch. The built width is 7..8 studs. The loco is 54 long, and with the tender it's 83. The Big Ben Bricks' XL wheels fitted mostly for the desired scale. Some curiosity: The steam valve is a built in little pneumatic cylinder. PF cable used for pipeline imitation: The handrails on the boiler's two side made of the very old technic flex system's inner cable. Electric side: 2 PF train motor 1 PF L motor 1 PF IR receiver (v2) 1 PF battery box 1 PF extension cable (50cm) 1 PF polarity switch The tender contains all the PF elements, except the L motor and the extension cable. Two train motors are attached to one output of the IR receiver (of course, one of them with the polarity switch). The L motor is in the loco, connected to the other IR receiver out. That way, it's possibble to start the loco with full voltage, the big wheels slipping, and then turn on the main drivers in the tender. Some more pics: Hope You like it!
