    I missed the contest entirely, I just want paying attention. I also wasn't feeling 100% today and found myself looking to kill time so figured I'd amuse myself by doing a Top Banner version in my own "pirate" style anyway. I kind of ripped off @Kai NRGs format, more than a little bit, sorry:pir-look:, but it's just for fun. Use it or don't, love it or hate it, what ever; it is what it is.

    Huge thank you to @Freezingvettes99 for gifting me with this New York Central Caboose it is the perfect compliment to my USRA 0-6-0.

    Very nice build indeed ... Personally I would change the brakemans catwalks to brown or dark grey to break up all the red ... Reguardless it looks well composed.  You should get as a picture of the whole rake.

    Judging from the prototype picture, the cupola's were not very useful as you could not see over the box car! I wonder if they eventually went to bay windows for better visibility. 

    I have actually ridden in one of these ..the boxcars are perfectly looked down ... However your standard coach car is not ... As its just as tall 'll


  3. At first I was like ... Really cool facades ... Then realized theres more ... Lol as always good classical feel and good story!

    Is the duel pegleg legs a custom thing or a lego official?

    <silently wonders outloud via text> has he never taken the peg legs and swapped then to other colored legs? Lol

    One question though: aren't you a Corry, why the SR build? :pir-sceptic:

    Ignoring the allegation I see lmao

    Are those WTC marines? Looking suspiciously like it...

    ..as these actions were not ordered by the WTC however, and there is no "legitimate proof" that these are not stolen uniforms the WTC is not liable for any and all underwater tunnels in these settlements. :pir-tongue:

    But are they really though? .... Maybe Mama just doesn't know ... It is her birthday after all lol

    Getting closer to completing the first carriage! Doors will be of the non-opening but hinged version (I can always remove the roof and manually open the door if needed for display purposes).

    I think this is swell ... Its visually appealing and if you wish to show a brakeman you can lol

    It depends on what you want: A BLE compatible device, which listens to a custom BLE "command", which in turn turns on the motor? Does it need to be BLE at all?

    the only issue I see with the Blue tooth is the time out code ... You would have to change it to not sleep or to give a wake command.  

    Im not saying its impossible but definitely would need to keep the hub powered or some how activate the pairing remotely


  7. @Phil B

    Since your adding interiors what about the Lavatory?

    Loving the work btw

    But seeing it in LDD I thought the gap was ok ... Seeing it in brick ... Not so much.   I guess when it boils down too it you have to ask yourself this: What is my main purpose for this build.  Meaning if your not planning on opening and shutting the doors all that often then I would go with the hinged method with no gap. As you can always display it with the doors open and you can drive it with them shut.  However if you plan on grand central going through your coach doors as you role play every fig through the station in and out of the car the go with the gap.

    Thanks.  I bought the wagon to transport more LEGO® to my LUG events.  It'll be my first turbo.  Do I have to be more religious with the oil changes?  :pir-classic:

    I could 3D print a LEGO® hand if any Sea Rats loses one in performing the duties of a Sea Rat.  :pir_laugh2:

    Not unless you loose the oil seal in the turbo ... You'll know you did ... She'll smoke like crazy.  Just dont go more than twice the recomended miles.

    I would be more interested in 3d printed train parts. . . than a hand.

    2 separate incidents. The front one got hit by gravel in construction. The back one went when I was trying to close the door and my hand went through it. Thankfully both were covered by insurance, and they were able to get them both fixed today. 

     

    Insurance is replacing your hand?

    Great market place scene, there is so much to discover - loving it! :thumbup:

    I really like the whole storyline leading up to this, and it feels like we are close to the "season finale". Excellent work by everybody involved, and this one stands out in particular. :pir-classic:

    Thank you ... I cant take all the credit Keymonus played a huge part in the story ... I can honestly say it might not of happened without his involvement!

    Great ending to the story and good to see Charlatan Bay once again pulled back to order. The new uniforms look great.

    Well dont walk away just yet ... The next chapter is still to unfold.

    Nope, just has the stock GM 2.2 Ecotec with 140 hp. Being a fairly lightish car it is pretty peppy. Enough to push you back when you floor it.

    You should LS swap ... It feels like a go cart lol. Where you go ridiculously fast with only being mildly safe lol... Its great.
