    [MOC] Jaguar XKSS

    You've really captured the curves well.

    Lego LNER A4 "Silver Link"

    Even to the extent of including a double chimney. Something the four silver locos wouldn't have had in that livery.
  3. I rebuild my corner modulars to fill up the full 32 plate so that the pavements can go on the road plates. Palace Cinema is much improved by this, it's a much more substantial building.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    What is most at risk of retiring next? I think I'm going to have to sell the car...

    I'm gutted that the aquarium missed out. I can't see me buying any of these.

    Modular buildings question, how many?

    You've just dragged up a topic that hadn't been posted in for three years.

    Lego 10277 - Crocodile Locomotive

    To be paired with this crocodile, wouldn't it have to be Dark Green? I'd love to see train windows back in any colour.

    Survey: New parts and new colors

    I was thinking more of a pneumatic solenoid valve.

    Survey: New parts and new colors

    A Powered up pneumatic switch. So that pneumatics can be controlled by a Hub. An S motor for small builds.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I like it but think it would've been better to separate the drop tower and haunted house into two different sets. Just imagine what fun they could've had with motorising animatronics like they did the doors if it was a dedicated haunted house.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It's quite simple. V = 5000 M = 1000 V = 5 I = 1 I = 1 5000+1000+5+1+1 = 6007

    (moc) British 5AT Advanced Technology Steam Locomotive

    You vastly underestimate just how much steam there is in the UK. On average, there is one tour running every day somewhere in the UK, with several on weekends. Then add in the Jacobite which runs twice a day during the summer and the countless heritage and commercial tourist railways again running daily services. One near me has at least five locos in steam every day during the summer.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Hardly, all it had was a sign reading "Hotel". No reception, no beds, no lift with scissor gates... It was no more a hotel than DO was a police station.

    Marker lights on UK/Euro trains

    All UK trains must display a red light on the rear. A traditional paraffin tail lamp looks like this but could be painted white, red or black. Usually only one would be carried, though two would be carried on the Royal Train and on slip coaches: https://c8.alamy.com/comp/F3EBNE/mark-1-railway-carriage-tail-light-F3EBNE.jpg A modern, battery tail light (which flashes to save power) was introduced in the '80s. Some do have red reflectors: https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/uploads/monthly_10_2012/post-9382-0-52245300-1349223715.jpg Because unfitted freight trains had a habit of separating, goods brake vans used to carry side lamps as well which showed a red light to the rear and a white light ahead so that the driver could look back and check that the train was complete. Again, they could be painted white, red or black depending on the company: https://thumbs.worthpoint.com/zoom/images4/360/0515/17/br-railway-brake-van-side-lamp_360_e156df5e727ba92b61252b2789d037cf.jpg When in a loop or on a slow line adjacent to a main line, the guard would remove one of the filters so that two red and one white light would be seen by any overtaking trains, so that they didn't confuse it for a signal: https://www.oliviastrains.com/wp-content/files_mf/1480973632Brake1Goods2.jpg Modern freight trains are fully fitted so only carry a single modern battery lamp. A shunting locomotive must display a white AND a red light at each end.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'd agree that a Town Hall wouldn't be in keeping with the setting. What about a Village Hall though? Just a simple, small building with enough room for a choir to perform.
