    Track Ballast - Ideas needed

    The Moduverse standard is 2 bricks = 1 bottom plate + 1 brick & 1 plate in the middle + 1 top plate (usually 16x16 plates but “floating” baseplates could be used). 1 additional tile/plate is only needed if combined with removable track sections. Thus, Moduverse is slightly more parts intensive than MILS but provides a few building advantages without being that much more expensive (no baseplates needed). A topic for another discussion 😁

    Track Ballast - Ideas needed

    Maybe our Scandinavian Moduverse standard for ballasted tracks?

    Updated with more photorealistic renderings using Stud.io instead of Bluerender

    (MOC) Odense Kommandopost (Signal Box)

    Thanks AE brick, your own singnal box looks inspring too (and your people even got a bigger coffee machine than mine) The control room with the big junction panel looks amazing and your MOC really deserves its own thread

    10027 Train Engine Shed MOD (Rendering)

    Free building instructions by fellow Danish LUG member Knud Ahrnell Albrechtsen at snakebyte.dk. Beware that the base of the shed follows the MODUVERSE-standard but can easily be reversed back to ordinary baseplates and train tracks

    [MOC] Intercity Rheingold

    A fellow Danish LUG-member Lars Mogensen already tried this on LEGO Ideas two years ago getting 2018 votes before deadline whixh is not that bad for a trainset. Still, best of luck to you, you could not have picked a nicer train Link to LEGO Ideas Link to our Danish LUG site with pictures of the whole trainset

    MOC Tank engine locomotive - Knapsack style

    Lovely train - you always seem to have a very aesthetically pleasing look to your builds which have been an inspiration for my own work in a long time 👍

    NOHAB MY 1111

    With no room, a suggestion could be to start building virtual models using some of the nice building programs out there 🙂 We want to see more 😁

    LEGO VT 11.5 Trans Europ Express (TEE)

    Marvellous MOC 👍👍👍 Totally killed any aspirations I ever had to build our local Danish version of the TEE, DSB Litra MA - I will just buy your next book with the building instructions, deal 😁

    Ideal Ideas train.

    And in addition to what zephyr1934 wrote, don’t submit models to LEGO Ideas borrowing heavily from other people’s designs. At least not without contacting them first

    Yeah, a stand-alone Powered Up hub (with adapters) would be nice too

    Always fun to see another tackle a much beloved locomotive and try and translate it into bricks...a tough one! Very nice looking 7-wide version with some unique solutions (!) I especially like the three-axle bogies (dremel or not) but the nose seems a bit too steep and the portholes a bit off even though they seem ok size-wise (maybe the surroundings?). And with the dremel already in use, lights in the upper nose shouldn't be a problem But well done overall

    Ideal Ideas train.

    Serveral wonderful trains have been proposed on LEGO Ideas through the years, some from known great builders, some beautiful beautiful designs, some famous trains with mass appeal and none, except the tram mentioned above (and it still wasn’t picked) have reached the votes necessary (not even above the 4000 mark, I think). Trains are too niche for the masses, one could argue. And it seems that LEGO knows this very well from their own market research, just look at their current product line, 1 cargo train, 1 passenger train and from time to time 1 train station or a creator train, that’s it. Otherwise they would be producing more train sets for sure. A LEGO Ideas train set probably would not sell enough in whatever shape or form or however brilliant to be considered a valid option. That is the harsh reality imo. So it seems futile even trying but I would very much like to be proven wrong 🙂
