    4560 Railway Express (Passenger Train) Extreme MOD

    Update: Since I saw the first pictures of the new in-progress Railjet 2 with the new low-floor cars, I had the idea to rebuild the 4560 more in this direction and still keep the original style and design. I found some inspiration here in the forum (NSB Class 73). This helped me to go in the right direction. At first I tried to use only the narrow windows, or only the big ones in a row, or even without the blue stripes on the roof. As usual, there were a lot of try and error: But I just can't help myself. Somehow the original color scheme fascinates me. So I tried to keep the TLG design. In the end, I tried to reuse as many elements from the 4560 as possible, but still create a reasonably appealing and realistic train. What do you think? Pic1: one side with 2nd class and bord restaurant in the middle Pic2: other side with 1st class (yellow stripes), "b unit" (don't know if this is corerct) and the other side of the bord restaurant

    Another Big Boy Model

    Thorsten, you have stolen my thoughts 😉 But yes, I fully agree! Incredible work! Dave, which parts did you have to change for the XL drivers? Sure, „normal ones“ without technic skills like me cant build such an incredible realistic train, but at least maybe I am allowed to modify it also with XL drivers and zephyrs rods 😅
  3. Nice to see another point of view for this set. I dont know why, but the original design still impress me. Here you can find my try to „Mod“ it.

    Yes. Absolutely YES. This is how it should be. If this would be a Remake set, shut up and take my money. Cant whait to see the classic Santa Fe colour version. Well done. Really.

    You are absolutely right. And yup, as Tube Map shared, THAT'S a station I would buy! But to be honest, the last stations were also "OK". For example 7997 or 60050. But the new one is, ahm, ugly.

    LEGO Trains 2022

    OK, good to see, that some of you like the passenger train. Hopefully this will LEGO motivate to keep the good things. My personal oppinion: Freight train Brick built cockpit "fresh" design realistic details low-floor platform trailer For me, the freight train is the favourite. I like the design, because it reminds me of a Siemens Taurus. Yes the windscreen is crap. Here I personal would prefer the solution like many other MOCs have done it. For example. But I think TLG had this as inspiration for the front So for me the front screen is the only bad thing on the freight train. And I only say this, because I ignore the trailers. The only trailer, that I like is low-floor platform trailer. Passenger train We finally don't have a molded part cockpit anymore We finally have doors and we finally have low-floor platforms again But then how the heck can you design such a wasabi green monstrosity!!!! 😱🤢 I hope in Asia and for all who love Shinkansen like trains, this set goes well. But for me, even the original 4560 looks better! Even if it had no doors! I will definitely look for MOCs which will create the front more like the 4560 or the 10233 Horizon Express. At least, finally new trains.

    4560 Railway Express (Passenger Train) Extreme MOD

    Thank you all for the very positve feedback! OMG. My topic was on the Eurobricks frontpage! THANK YOU! @Toastie: it almost took me over 2 years to finish it. You can see it on the history trials, this really was my first - more serious - try for a train MOC/MOD after the dark ages. So thank you for the flowers. @zephyr1934: thank you for your comments. I edited my topic and I hope it is now easier to see the main theme.
  8. Dear all, to make it clar, that's not a MOD. THAT'S a MOD. For all of you who want to skip the story of this "Mod" (if you can call it still a Mod), there it goes on >>>. >>> Below are the results of my first serious try of a train MOC. Lower Deck Inside (on the left side a toilett, according to the TGV Duplex). The Bistro inside: Just for history, some older design trials: Thanks for all the inspiration, instructions and also help from you master builders. I hope to have delivered a worthy (more or less 1st) MOC here. I look forward to your feedback and have deliberately first presented the digital design before I build it in real, in the hope of constructive feedback 😊
  9. I fully agree. I never thought that it would be that simple! I hope Lego will pick up the idea for future sets. We need more RC sets! And you showed the world how easy it could be. Congrats! PS: know I want an RC Batbike

    Type E Coupler for LEGO Trains

    It is sad that this project is dead. For all who are looking at alternates or reading about the Kadee couplers: There they are.

    E 194

    You first create a good crocodil, now Lego brings the 10277 crocodil. Can someone tell LEGO we want THIS BR 194 as rebrickable model of the 10277?
  13. oooooh. Never saw it before. The model itself is very accurate to the original. But the Silberlinge looks still strange for me.

    [MOC] DB Class 111

    Which rod length do you use on the top? By the way, for this trains I would prefer a train buffer beam with a plow. I know the have no plow in real, but the lego version looks more like the original on the european trains.
