    [MOC] Train Shed

    Thanks @deraven @Feuer Zug @Toastie for your feedback. I'm actually really impressed with all the positive comments I had so far from everyone. Thanks @LEGO Train 12 Volts but you actually spotted and "issue" that I noticed during the real building. It is actually a really tight fit with the croco, so bigger locos will have issues. That's why I changed a bit the build, so if someone needs the doors a bit wider, just need to change the 1x2 bricks for 1x1 bricks, and that's it! I plan to do it, if I ever get a chance to build a display of my own, because at the moment, this will go to a box and get stored...

    [MOC] Train Shed

    Thanks @Shiva @caiman0637 @JWBDolphins @bogieman, glad you guys liked it! Thanks @Pdaitabird @Stuartn for the machinery i took inspiration from my uncle metal workshop, it was actually one of the most difficult parts to do. (Only the roof was worse) Thanks @Black Knight to be 100% honest, I didn't went in any way to an historical approach. This idea first came to my mind, after I saw a picture of the croco in a train shed being renovated, but the appearance of the shed, came from set 10027. I love that set, but for me it is far too simple, so I was inspired to build an "upgraded" version. The minifigs, I decided that the workers should all have the same outfit, and I had quite a few of those torsos, as for the welder, in my mind was a "specialised" work that needed to be outsourced, that's why he is different. :) Thanks @zephyr1934 ! As I said, I was inspired by 10027. That set looks so good (I don't own it, but I saw a lot of reviews and photos), but it lacks so many playable functions... And the roof, It looks good, but I find it "simple" if that makes sense. I was thinking to put it in Ideas platform, but I don't think it's worth it, as probably it will not be a theme that a lot of people will support. So I think I will fine tune the studio.io file, and upload it to rebrickable for free as with all my builds.

    [MOC] Train Shed

    Hi all! Here the train shed I built to park my Crocodile locomotive. It's a simple design, but I think it turned out nice. The roof took me quite some time to figure out, but I think it was worth it. It also has a working crane in there. Hope you guys like it.

    They recently lost 2 orders of mine, thats why I was curious. Good thing is that they solved it, so now I got two new one's.

    Mine always appear. Few weeks I had to call in because my two orders didn't arrive, and they did two new one's for me, and took maybe a day or so, but they are there.

    Yesterday I had to call Lego, because my two orders sent few weeks ago still didn't arrive. The person who I spoke to, told me that at least here in Europe, once they are sent, should not have a big delay until they arrive, they are only having issues on sorting this orders. She told me this is first because they still have less people sorting this orders due to the COVID, and second that they saw a big increase in orders from Bricks & Pieces since people are at home. She end up sending me another order, as she said that the original one should have arrived days ago.

    I hope so, I would really try to have a go on a Record Store modular after I finish my Train Shed.

    Yap, that would be cool! I also would like to have the printed tiles, they would be great for a record shop...

    It can be that then, because all the orders I received by post, are under our allowed customs limit. Probably when it's more than the allowed amount, they send with DHL for customs clearance, and by some error they did a mistake with your order.

    I also live in Switzerland, and never had this issue before, and I did quite a lot of orders on the last months. What I noticed is, the biggest order I did, they sent it by DHL, the smallest all came by post. Don't know if somehow the rely on DHL to clear the biggest orders in the customs, or if it was only a coincidence.
  13. Thanks for the picture. This is way more simple then I was thinking, it might solve my issue.
  14. Man, I love it! You have really nice details, but specially for me the tractor and the barn are very good. May i ask how did you do the barn roof? How did you connect the two sections? I am at the moment finishing my train shed, and I'm struggling a bit to do something similar...

    I made also 3 orders this year, and all of them are still in Warehouse. Operator confirmed that they are not "forgotten", but they have a big delay on sending them.
