  1. This is beautiful! I wonder how pronounced the brick lines will be in real life though. I'm trying to find suggestions of details to add, but there really aren't many... The only things I can think of are more internal details (equipment, tools, shelves, miscellaneous items etc) or maybe a small office/break room off the back corner. It could be done in a different style to imply it was built later as an addition. Overall though you've done such a good job. Well done.

    Piston gear - part identification help please

    I've tried this part on a couple of MOCs, and they've worked beautifully. If you don't mind, Blu-tack (or equivalent) helps a great deal; but you might be alright without.

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    I don't think any angled half-width liftarms exist at all I'm afraid. The only half-width part I could find with an angle that isn't 90 degrees is 44374, which probably isn't much help. Just how z-shaped do you want? If square corners are acceptable, a couple of 32056 might work, or one of those and some straight half-liftarms. There's not much else unfortunately. I might be of more help if I knew some context of the build; what is it for, how large should the frame be, could it be built in normal width etc?

    BR Class 8 Shunter

    Excellent work! This is one of the better representations of this popular prototype in my opinion, certainly aided by the width. I can't wait to see it in action, especially with decouplers at both ends. Interesting use of SBrick too; I think this is one of the first times I've seen it used in a locomotive, and it makes perfect sense for this model. Good job overall. By the way, your flickr link doesn't seem to work.

    2018 Lego Trains

    No, they just didn't have any batteries to put in it (see auto-translated subtitles at 17:58 ish). I'd hope the motor will pull a doubled-up set; the question is how long it will run for on one set of batteries. I do think it looks quite impressive when doubled up at a distance though, especially with the continuation of the colours.

    2018 Lego Trains

    @Chromeknight That's an excellent suggestion. A style of train that hasn't been released before, fitting a currently expanding theme... perfect. For anyone still interested in how PU stacks up against PF, @Sariel has released a new video:

    Part 4621555 transparent?

    @NathanR has said it all really; very few technic parts have been released transparent. With regards to the 42056 Porshce set, I would recommend reading the topic below and similar ones in the Technic sub-forum. If there's nothing helpful in there, you could ask for solutions in the topic and I'm sure people will assist you.
  8. Excellent work! Every important function motorized, and yet the model is kept neat and clean too; even that m-motor isn't too obvious from some angles. I love the buckets and quick-coupler system. A great job overall.

    LEGO 60197 Passenger Train

    I don't think they'll bother with either. The train motors (or at least the now-old PF ones) have low resistance to being pulled along unpowered. I don't know if a powered motor can pull an unpowered one or not. Either way, I don't see them including extra bricks just to replace the motor, and I don't think a PU (Powered Up, the new system) polarity switch even exists yet.

    Narrow Gauge 0-4-0

    Welcome to Eurobricks! Your little locomotive is brilliant. Does it have details in the cab? I think you could replace the twin buffers and coupling with one larger one in the middle, as many narrow gauge systems use due to the often tighter corners. Apart from that, I think you've done a perfect job.

    [LDD MOC] 60198 Preliminary replica

    Another outing for my model! I've lost track of how many people have built it for me, I suppose I should try myself now. I like the different windscreen; it resembles a more modern locomotive, given the "wrap-around" glass with no pillars. The dark red stripe and different bogies look excellent on it too. Good work.

    Moving vehicles in a Lego city (100% Lego solution)

    Excellent work! I love motion and realistic functions in LEGO, and everything's better when motorised. I think you've done a neat job of this coach. And I can't really complain that it turns like a bus, since it is a bus...

    Nebulaire's workshop

    An interesting project; I will certainly follow this one along, as I haven't seen many technic train MOCs. I guess there are reasons for that though (large, few functions, etc.). I'm looking forward to seeing this one complete!

    60154 + 4564 = 37?

    Excellent work, you've pretty much got a network-rail liveried "tractor" there. My only issue really is the headlights on the nose, but they given the parts you've done fantastically well. The windscreen wipers are a good touch.

    What is your favorite Lego Theme?

    Town, Trains and Technic! OK, yes, the first two are both City, but alliteration with Ts sounds better. I'll also be attracted to anything with realistic-ish vehicles and interesting functions, e.g. Power Miners, Agents etc.
