    Fixing ME Models Curved Metal Rails with LEGO

    Oh wow - it is deeply disappointing to hear about the quality of metal rails after this long a wait for many of you. I personally did not buy any ME Models tracks though. However! The concept of using code 100 tracks in LEGO adapters is very promising! It allows for DIY tracks, curves, switches and crossings. I am rather keen on the thought of using PF and a DCC decoder to eliminate the drawbacks of PF. But that's a bit off-topic.

    [MOC] MOONEYES headquarters

    Very impressive! However a question. Would it be possible to incorporate the Shelby link into the build? Maybe build an AC Cobra they are building or a sign on the wall?

    [MOC] Art D├ęco Gas Station

    Gasps. Very beautiful! I love the 1950's feeling it conveys and all of the little details. Could you now please fix my Ford roadster?

    Apartment Block "Blue Whale"

    I love in a similar apartment building (its even blue, too!) so I enjoy seeing this build. I would put the blind wall next to the other modulars. In my apartment building, both end walls are blind and 6 of these buildings are linked. Modular indeed!

    [MOC] - 4-wide FYRA

    I dont think your build does the train justice. It is, in fact, far better. I bet it even runs really well and has no bits falling off when there is snow outside? Edit: yes, you got most of that right. Research well done! The FYRA trains were parked at Watergraafsmeer but are now sent back to Italy, I believe. I don't know about the Intercity Direct service... we have the Traxx locomotives running to Eindhoven while the Fyra never did. The new train acquisitions are for the replacement of general intercity services. Not (only) to replace the FYRA fleet.

    [MOC] Amtrak P42DC

    Well, you could try to do an articulated version of the locomotive for Octrainber... with a proper background story to go with it ;). Very attractive locomotive!
  7. Well... I think the UK in particular has quite a few models to work with. A to-scale Flying Scotsman with double tenders (semi-permanently coupled) comed to mind. I can name more examples, but I would be giving my own ideas away. Russia also has very large articulated locomotives.

    [MOC] Edificio Metropolis Madrid

    Very impressive! You could show off the details a bit more if you play with light for the pictures. With shadows, there is a greater sense of depth.

    7777 memories

    I do remember having the yellow and red train doors as a kid, without having a clue what they made or that my family even had that train...

    BrickTracks: different curves, PF/9V compatible

    I think putting the same product on the market as ME models is hard. Why would a LEGO builder pledge an amount of money rather than ordering from ME models at their website? OOf course you could, but you'd have to bring something to the table that ME doesnt. With the switches, however, you could be first to market and your switches look very good. If you can get the pricing right, could this be a more interesting project for the customers?

    So what Locomotive is the Maersk Train?

    Well, a mix of all of the above I suppose. I dont think Lego is trying to replicate a model perfectly. You'll likely find similar imperfections in the other creator trains. Feel free to modify them,i its Lego after all!

    The fastest Lego Lok of the World

    True, but the train has a motor adding to its speed. And I just want to know the speed rather than calculate it ;)

    The fastest Lego Lok of the World

    I have to say the execution is impressive :). I guess you could build a speed trap at the bottom of the loop and time how long the train is actually in the loop itself? That should give you an average speed for the fastest section of the "railway".

    The fastest Lego Lok of the World

    Don't forget to factor in wind resistance which will get serious by 70 kph... lets go find the tallest building!

    Now that will go very well with the 60098 coal crane!
