    [MOC] Sächsische IV K

    Yes, the W50 was the standard truck in the GDR and ubiquitous. Thomas

    [MOC] Sächsische IV K

    Top! The front of the Truck is perfect and I habe no problem with identification as a IFA W50. Fun fact: The „W“ in W50 means the city Werdau in East Germany, my city of my younger live. Thomas
  3. Great work, looks fantastic and the challenge with the logo is over the top! Oh no… 😂 The train is too short with only 8 waggons…. But I unterstand you: I don‘t like build the same waggon more times. But a whole train looks awesome…. Thomas

    Coal mine

    Is really impressive and the many little allusions invite you to discover! You probably have to see this live ;-) Thanks for introducing, is a great model all parts of the world.... ;-) Thomas

    #13 wheels in stud.io

    I have no gap between the leading axle and the overlying frames. First reason: I want to have pressure from above on the leading axle so that it does not jump off the track Second reason: the optics, a gap would not look nice. I did not have problems with derailments even on quite bumpy tracks like the BSBT in Schkeuditz: Thomas

    Thank you very much. But there are only a few bricks stacked on top of each other ;-) Thomas

    [MOC] My LEGO Renfe S-130

    Very nice design with a lot of details. But you can't get around testing with real brikcs and test drives. Especially with the chassis from the Talgo. That needs test drives in any case. Only with theory will come out there in my opinion not a good result. So get to the bricks ;-) Thomas

    I also love such photos and now I finally had the opportunity to create such photos myself. My fleet consists primarily of existing museum locomotives and yet I do not often get to. The real one is very dirty and would have to be cleaned urgently. The train is publicly accessible on the museum track in Leipzig Central Station, but it is not a museum. There are just a few old locomotives parked there. Thank you both so much! Thomas

    Today there was an opportunity for a few special photos..... And of course I already see again small ideas for rebuilding..... .... but nothing wild yet, just details^^ Thomas

    Autorack - American style (8-wide)

    First impression: hmm, closed wagon, what is there especially.... Then the picture with the cars: aaaahhhhhh! But too bad that you see nothing of the secret for now. But that is due to the prototype. Nice idea and well built. Thomas

    Thank you guys! Not one ;-) But can be that some parts come from this set. Thx. I had also thought more complicated at first and even wanted to use a small Atmel Tiny. But in the end KISS won: Kepp it simply, stupid..... That is important to me. The idea came from you and my conversion is based on your work. I can't just say: everything is self-made ;-) Thank you. The railcar should also fit into your favored time, just from the wrong country. Thank you also. The color is already something special. First very strange, but once you've worked with it longer, you love it. And the model has become such an eye-catcher. Thx. But who knows: in a few years with new parts you can maybe build it even better. Or someone has better ideas... Thomas

    Thank you *thomas* and GoHabsGo.... No problem. if you have more questions, you can also contact me in Dr. Brick Forum in German. Thomas

    Thanks at all! I first used the principle on my V100.4 and completely disclosed it there as well: (Video is in german, sorry for english readers. But the ciruit plan is in all languages the same ;-) ) It should be noted that the value of the necessary resistors depends strongly on the voltages used and also on the type of LEDs. You should first try something like this on a plug-in board until it works and then solder it. The components are standard electronic parts, nothing special. The cost of all components is perhaps a 1 euro total. Orderable at any good electronics store, in Germany e.g. Reichelt.de. Thomas
  14. In the course of December, I stumbled across the Flying Hamburger while reading Wikipedia every day. The railcar train is of course a perfect match for my streamlined locomotives: time and origin fits. However, there is only a remnant of the Flying Hamburger in Nuremberg DB museum and I prefer to build complete museum locomotives. Also, I was not happy with the look of the "Flying Hamburger" and the small, deep-drawn front windows. However, further research revealed that after the prototype, 13 railcar trains of the "Hamburg" type were built and also in regular service. These had a more beautiful front for me and are simply a classic. And one of them is completely preserved as a museum train in Leipzig's main station. Perfect ;-) The original is perfect in shape for a Lego conversion, so go for it ;-) Sure, I needed the one or other attempt in studio or with stones, but quite quickly I came to the feeling: yes, it works. An exciting topic was the transition between the two halves of the train. I wanted them as close together as possible. The solution was then a variation of an idea from @Hod Carrier. He had presented a kind of close coupling with trapeze and I adapted this principle to my place and size. There was still help in the Dr. Brick Forum from Mick. With the close coupling the two units can drive very close together through R104 curves / switches. But the limitation to R104 is in the boogies, the coupler could run smaller radii with a different design. The interior design was also exciting. I didn't want to use the Lego molding for a seat, since wing chairs were in use in the original. So I built myself wing chairs. Per seat only 14 parts.... ;-) Built are just over 2700 Lego parts Drive 2x Lego PU CityHUB 2x Lego PU train motor Light and stickers are self-made No foreign parts from other manufacturers used Working front and rear lights, automatically matching the direction of travel Interior lighting: Since I wanted a rigid fairing, the minimum curve radius is R104: Last weekend at the exhibition in Wörrstadt/Germany the SVT had the first opportunity for a real ride: Have fun watching!

  15. Looks good and I understand your problems with the official Lego parts and the small curve radii. With my first moc I had the same solution: too small wheels, but suitable for R40.... Later I changed that ;-) Thomass
