    (MOC) Odense Banegård & modular platforms

    Thanks, a monster indeed... I plan on moving it in sections in custom made boxes....and rented van 😁

    (MOC) Odense Banegård & modular platforms

    Progress so far after building non-stop this weekend

    Instructions/ideas for ballasting curves?

    Maybe a more “welcoming” solution here 😁 http://www.snakebyte.dk/lego/instructions/trains/tracks/index.php

    (MOC) Odense Banegård & modular platforms

    Last bit of fluff before building begins in a few days Deadline is 28th of March next year with the yearly national model railroad exhibition “Modeltog For Alle” (Model Railroad Trains For Everybody) in the city of Kolding. ...OMG

    Train Barge

    If not the Mexican one, Terry, maybe one of these Danish train ferries then? With a scale of 1:45 it would only have to be 3.30 m long and 60 cm wide

    Best place to buy MOC trains?

    Lots of free building instructions with part lists here, mostly Danish locomotives and rolling stock

    (MOC) Odense Banegård & modular platforms

    Finally, the platform is finished and ready to be packed before going to Skærbæk Fan Weekend tomorrow Unfortunately the slight v-angle of the roof had to go as it was too fragile and prone to slowly dropping down due to gravity. A "not-so-uncommon" problem with digital designing, no gravity that is At least the roof is now much more solid and overall flat from module to module and with fewer parts. The platform (without minifigs and other scenery): My DSB IC3 passenger train on the intercity side: Now that the "easier" part is done, the next stop is the train station itself! 99% of the parts have been collected, I just need to find the time and even more important the space: The platform with tracks is about 1/3 of the overall layout

    MILS modules with track.

    This way
  9. And running full speed I barely understand the basics of the home made control system used for most of the layout but yes, it is very sophisticated and 9v powered. I’ll have to ask the guys for a better and more elaborate answer.
  10. Thanks! It is not mine as I haven’t made a steam engine yet (still working on my first one). i’m quite sure it is made by our chairman Lars Mogensen but far from all of his train stuff have been shown online or even have pictures of them at all. Unfortuantely this seems one of those. His old Brickshelf gallery here and Togklodsen’s still rather sparse gallery here. .
  11. Video from the yearly model railroad exhibition in the danish city of Helsingør earlier this month. The LEGO contribution was done by our new (and smallish) train club, Togklodsen. Unfortunately I couldn’t participate but a lot of my trains did A rather spectacular crash occurs around the 12 minute mark

    (MOC) DSB Litra DB (II)

    Presenting another Danish wagon...a design-project for another Danish LUG-member to build and test in real bricks (!) DSB Litra DB (II) The Danish State Railways' (DSB) improved Litra DB (II) travelling post offices (TPOs) were built by Scandia in Denmark. 5 were built in 1961. All have been scraped today, the last one in 2011. The model: Digital but has been built and being tested irl with free bulding instructions also in the works Original DSB maroon livery used from the fifties to the seventies - with Dark Red a very good match albeit a bit too clean Scale: ~1:50 Lenght: 34 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 808 (very heavy, so ball bearings recommended) Designed: 2012 & 2017 & 2019 Sadly the LEGO Digital Designer file was lost a few years ago when all my data were lost (including multiple backups). So I had to recreate the model from scratch using two remaining screenshots posted online. Rather strange experience to reverse engineering yourself Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals done in the PartDesigner tool and some manuel editing. The roof can be removed, giving access inside the wagon and the doors can slide in opposite directions by flipping the blocking hinge parts down. Technique used for the bogies - prepared for ball bearings Maybe some photoes of the real thing will be added later when completely done...

    As a general LEGO fan I really like this set but as a LEGO train builder not so much. Too many design compromises and those new wheels still don’t win me over even in red.
