  1. A little LEGO Digital Designer project I have been working on since the beginning of March...now rendered in stud.io using highest settings and a very large size of 4800x3600 Odense Banegård The train station was drawn by Danish architect Heinrich Wenck and built in 1913-1914 in the city of Odense, Denmark. It was used as such until 1995. The building was later bought by the city, housing the city's music library for several years. The actual Odense Banegård My model: Scale: Minifig or approx. 1:50 Area: 3 x 8 baseplates 32 x 32 Number of parts: 23.223 The ground floor consist of 2 wings and 1 main building which all can be separated. The roof consists of six sections which can be removed, giving access to the building inside. The platform consists of multiple sections which can all be clicked together for added stability. Frontside: Facing one of the city's many old parks, Kongens Have (The Royal Garden), separated only by road (and a light rail line from 2021). Trackside: A mix of its appearances during different ages with a few modern train station equipment added as the building isn't used as such anymore...and I didn't want to fill this side completely with bicycles Rigth wing: Facing musikhuset Posten (live music venue) which was originally built as a parcel post office in the same architectual style. The two buildings are separated only by a small paved area, now a parking lot. Left wing: Facing Danhostel Odense City or what is left of the hotel when the new monstrosity Odense Banegård Center was being built in 1995 and needed the space. The main clock: The main platform doors:

    [MOC] Odense Banegård & modular platforms

    Replicated. Some are historical and found online like most DSB adverts or the Carlsberg one, some are current like the H.C. Andersen one or the Selecta vending machine and one is entirely made up (the one with my LUG’s logo Byggepladen and the Togklodsen logo underneath). All signs, displays and messages are current and recreated from photos taken from my tours around the station down to even using the official Via Office DSB font.

    Thanks all! Three long days of moving and setting everything up in a bigger room a few city blocks away and taking photos is finally done 🙂

    The event in Kolding was cancelled yesterday and today our country is more or less closing completely down due to the Coronavirus so no exhibitions in the near future 😲 .

    Still not so great photo but first time the station and platform are together 🙂

    [MOC] Odense Banegård & modular platforms

    99,9 % done - only some stickers and road auxiliary missing 🙂 60% of the total area - excluding the road in front of the station and the platform with tracks behind it. I’ll try to take some better photoes in the weekend...

    Slightly redesigned and better integrated brick-built half of the four-lane road in front of the station ~5.600 parts

    Progress so far this week...

    Unfortunately selling is very unlikely as approx. one-fouth of the parts is on loan. An extended loan but a loan nevertheless. The idea of putting the station on display in a museum or similar place in the meantime is great though , maybe the LEGO House not far from here .

    Thanks, “Modeltog for Alle” in Kolding is the debut but I plan to exhibit the station at our yearly Danish LUG event “Klodsfest”, “Skærbæk Fan Weekend”, (probably) “LEGO World 2021” in Copenhagen and (still unlikely) Danmarks Jernbanemuseum (The Danish Railway Museum) in Odense. So a lot of exhibitions and travel. After that the plan is to disassemble the station and probably build a permanent smaller one...or two 😁 Plan B is to rent a storage room or move to a much bigger house 😁

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

    Instructions/ideas for ballasting curves?

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

    Last bit of fluff before building begins soon 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
  20. 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

    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) but with 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
