    Motorized Class 143

    I use standard tracks and it went very well. I think because both axles are driven. I only have struggles to fit this L motor inside a 4 wide room with a better support so it will not jump from the gear. My current construction is very weak

    Motorized Class 143

    Thanks, I see that the plate came loose on the picture. I Indeed need to make a technic construction. And what about the L-motor? Can it take this train without breaking or something?

    Motorized Class 143

    Two days ago I made a motorized Class 143. The idea came from someone who also made a Pacer and posted it on Eurobricks. With gears I connected the 2 axles to the L-motor. I'm now trying to make the L-motor stable so it will not jump out of it's place. But I was thinking, how much can a L-motor withstand? It really has a though job moving this train. And is there another way to mount this motor?
  4. I have been designing the NS/NMBS Beneluxtrein. A service that ran between Amsterdam and Brussels. In my previous post I showed the HLE 25 from NMBS. Here are the final designs of the two coaches and the old designs: ~NEW~ (the one on the far right is from the original Beneluxtrein) ~old~ ~NEW (I4 Coach)~ ~old~ And finally the Plan D after being assembled, the project has officially been launched.

    [MOC] NMBS HLE 25

    Can you tell me something about roller bearings on the axles? Also I should get the two coaches first so I have the full train set of 3 cars to do tests.

    [MOC] NMBS HLE 25

    So I was designing the the whole NS/NMBS Beneluxtrein, a service that ran from Amsterdam to Brussels. Here is the final HLE 25 Design. The driving cab is already built. I made some fixes with the HLE 25 engine. All bogies are aligned and the cab has a better design. The only big problem is that I don't know if the standard PU or PF is able to pull all these heavy coaches. I noticed my 7939 locomotive had some problems pulling and pushing the coach w/ driving cab alone. If you have ideas to improve the locomotive feel free to tell!

    Problems with uploading pictures

    Thanks @ExeSandbox , I have Flickr but I can't upload them on Eurobricks anymore?
  9. When I was writing a topic I noticed I couldn't upload pictures anymore. When I choose a file and upload I get an error message to ask for assistance. I messaged an admin but I did not get any response. I also tried to make the images smaller to reduce the size but that also failed. I'd really appreciate it if anyone can help me!

    Hey awesome make! Can you tell the secret behind the front axle? Is that glued to the metal axle?

    [MOC] NMBS HLE 25 In progress

    Great! Thanks for your help, this looks very nice. I have enough space in the cab for this idea. I was thinking about this, this looks better
  12. I have started making the HLE 25 from the NMBS for my NS, NMBS Benelux train set. This was a bit of a challenge because of the sloped front. I'm posting this to show you the progress and for feedback. I have the idea that mine looks different than the real thing. 8-wide would be easier to make more details but I decided to stick to 6-wide. The inverted slopes behind the front coupling are attached to the bogie. Also a small detail that is hard to make is the yellow line. Because of the 2 x 1 x 2 slopes I can't make a yellow line. If anyone has some ideas for me or things that I can do to make it look better, feel free to tell me (Also, this engine will be made specially to be fitted with PF)

    [MOD] LEGO Set 3177 with matching trailer

    Thanks! It was a bit of a challenge since 3177 already is very small.
  14. I always like to mess around with existing LEGO sets, especially with set 3177 (a.k.a small car). So I discovered a BMW M4 with a trailer made from another BMW M4 cut in half. I used that idea to make this thing:
