  1. 2018 Lego Trains

    @Bricked1980 They are the same but unfortunately without the glass. However it's nice to see this trend with adding train parts to regular sets continuing. Maybe TLG doesn't forget us but knows that people buy sets just for parts.
  2. MOC: Swiss IC Train with Re 460

    I think the front does indeed look rounder, I know it's hard to make round shapes out of not-so-round-bricks.
  3. Train MOCs and Builders - Who/What is Your Inspiration?

    I get a lot of inspiration from Flickr and from this forum Some of the most important persons are: @SavaTheAggie @raised Shuppiluliumas (I don't know if he's on Eurobricks) @Cale and @legoman666
  4. Lego APT with passive tilt MOC

    Nice train, especially the tilting. I guess I have to take a closer look at your technique since I once tried a tilting mecanism which failed in switches and s-curves.
  5. MOC: Swiss IC Train with Re 460

    They look great. I think you did a good job on the proportions with the cars over 46 studs long. For the Re 460 you could try using the 2x2x2/3 round slope for the front to make it rounder or the 2x1 cheese slope to substitute the 1x1. The pantographs are well placed and hidden if looked from the side, just as on the real one.
  6. Okay, help me with PF train motors

    One thing that came to my mind was that if you drive an official Lego train set with the PF-Motor, the motor is indeed to fast and the train would derail in a curve if the motor was on full speed. Is it possible that this is a reason to intentionally make the motor slower?
  7. NS DE4 / SBB RAm TEE

    That's a good improvement. I like the cars a lot better now.
  8. MOC - 7720 reloaded (DB E69)

    That's a nice little train and I guess the first Train Moc I've ever seen with such a function.
  9. NS DE4 / SBB RAm TEE

    Hello First: very nice train, it is easily recognisable and there are a lot of details in the inside. About the nose: I would use pictures taken form the side or maybe even a drawing if available and hold it over the built nose. Then you see where your Moc can be improved. You can also add a row of bricks to the underside of your cars, so that they don't look so empty there. You can also add tiles snoted to the boogies. Probably the cars also look a bit off becaues they are too short compared to the height, so they look higher than they actually are. Feel free to also take a look at my SBB RAe TEE II. http://Cab car by StefanEris, auf Flickr

    I build busses and trucks in 8 wide. Especially for the european cab design, 8 wide is easier than 7 and they still look good next to the cars. However on a layout where several people participate like on exhibitons I take care that my Mocs are not next to some 6 wide trucks. That would look silly. They also look silly next to 6 wide trains but next to 8 wide is okay. I also build trains in 8 wide. Here is link to my Scania truck: Scania B-Train
  11. I often use the following philosphy when building (or judging other's Mocs ;)): Cutting pieces is something I don't like, however drilling holes for light is another story since lightning can add a great atmosphere to a Moc. The bricks used should also be regular Lego bricks. Unless it has to do with the limitation Lego has as a toy. These are for examples parts like SBrick, tracks with taller radii, the ball bearings for train wheel and many others. I also like custom minifig accessoires if they add to the scene, especially in war dioramas (which for a good reason aren't produced by Lego themselves).

    @duifkelego I would take these pictures away before a mod sees them Posting prelim pics (those with watermarks like yours) is a reason to get premanently banned.
  13. 2018 Lego Trains

    It looks brickbuilt on the image. However, I would build the nose higher for an F7. For me it looks more like a streamlined crocodile loc of the german railways but with a shorter nose:
  14. BrickTracks: different curves, PF/9V compatible

    There is this gimmick called customs as @Capparezza already said. Since everything would pass a customs office twice if the tracks would be shipped from the US to Switzerland and then to the EU it may be chaeper for the Swiss guys (well, me) but not for the ones ordering from the EU. @M_slug357 I think the opposite, however I have no experience selling stuff to the EU from the US via Switzerland. @coaster There is the who sold ME-Models track. Maybe he can help.
  15. BrickTracks: different curves, PF/9V compatible

    This axle would be great, as it can be used in (nearly) every train design, also in existing ones. I guess offering such an axle next to 9V rails is a better solution than to only offer the rails. There would also be PF users who might purchase straight 9V track together with this axle. Cheap original 9V curves however are quite easy to find.
