    Layout first glimpse

    Thanks for the comments, Its been a long time coming but I've finally got round to sharing. Here are a few more shots that hopefully show it all a bit clearer.... As I still don't have all the pieces yet to finish off 6378 I thought it would look better being either demolished or completed. I wanted a cargo/depot feel for the layout and this is the entrance to the yard. I've tried to create a weigh bridge and porta-cabin for when trucks roll in and out. And a bit of a closer shot of these two beauty's because they are just 12v gods. The layout actually sits underneath the base boards of my 00 gauge model railway so it is following it's foot print, I do plan on making it a full loop in the future as i plan on building a new shed to clear all non related lego and railway things out of my cave.

    Me models 9v track

    With the current prices of 9v track has anybody had any experience in using thier new track?. I dont like to use anything else than lego but I would consider this as an alternitive.

    Which is your favourite 2012 Great Vehicle ?

    For me it has to be the bin lorry not just because it's my day job but it look's just like the one's we use and its just stunning, the lego lorry's just keep getting better!

    It's here! I've Got a Metroliner

    Hi all, I've just finished putting her together and I've got to say its nice!, I did'nt even know it had working front lights and the (fake) motor boogie at the rear of the train is really cool and has given me some good ideas. I just can't believe the condition of the bricks there still super glossy and sharp the only concern was putting the decals on I was'nt sure about making copys or not, this truly is the best set I've ever had and if you get the chance take my advice and get one! don't leave it as long as I did.

    It's here! I've Got a Metroliner

    I'm hoping to build it tonight and I cant wait, as for the club car I've seen a couple come up for sale on ebay recently but they are far to over priced I'll have to look on bricklink and go from there.
  9. It just had to be done, I recently decided to off load an old school bmx and put the cash to good use. So I made a wish list, a small one but it contained 2 of my most coverted trains of all time, the 7740 intercity 12v masterpiece and the 9v metroliner. The amount of hours I'd stare at them in the catologue is uncountable. But now the wait is finally over and with owning more 9v than 12v the choice was obvious. I would like to say a very big thank you to Ivor Williams of the Zedfactory @bricklink and highly rated in my opinion. Just waiting on extra motor I won on ebay then I,ll post some more pics, I just had to share this with every one! I feel like a kid again!!!!!!

    bricklink

    I need a bit of advice, I've seen a set I want to buy off a shop on bricklink the problem is I've neveer used it before and not sure how you go about it. Do I put it in the basket and checkout or is better to contact the seller before-hand as its quite expensive (for me anyway). Has any one ever had any problems with it before? any help would be appreicated. thanks

    ME-models metal track

    So I went on railbricks tonight and I saw one the best piece's of track work ever, so I then watched the videos and I came upon a conclusion. I'm very 'purist' and protective about lego I hate cheap imotation, mega blocks etc and I feel when building something out of Lego everything and including the bits you dont see should be Lego. That said but when I come to my other hobby of model railways I use all different manufatuerers because I like to have the best qaulitiy for each component and so I feel in this case I can justify it to myself by using it with Lego Because the qauility speaks for itself and the option of different sized curves is a winner!. Is anyone else convinced? I know I'am, what do you think

    The next evolution... ME Track

    I should'nt worry about wiether its an april fools or not, give it a few years and Lego will be back to using powered track again, they've already shown they cant make their minds up and gone full circle using battery operated trains. If they wanted true use of indipentedly controlled trains they should turn to dcc.
