    [MOC] Modern Signalbox

    Lol, he's right! Just replace that modified 1x1 brick with a 1x1 plate with a clip on top and voila! instant modernization!

    Long Trains.... Show 'm !

    I like your train and all three trains that pass by! It's worth a look! I use compressed graphite on my bearings and switches (turnouts). Also I agree with you about the pressure on the end of the axle, so again I use graphite there also. That whole layout is impressive!
  3. Thanks for the bump! Indeed I find that tram to be very inspirational. I might find a way to stuff the old IR PF stuff in there and a train motor underneath.
  4. Very well done! Thanks for sharing!
  5. That's because the pivot point on the truck is behind, not directly underneath the camera. In other words the camera is at the very end of the car. If it were in the middle (the truck in front of the camera) the camera would appear to turn into the corner, giving the opposite visual effect.
  6. I think it looks great! You did a good job closing up the back. I agree with others, add some appropriate accessories on the raised platform. Replace a dozen or so random tiles with 2x2 jumpers, and start sticking stuff and minifigs on there. Ideas will come quickly from there.
  7. If you look through some threads here you'll find a variety of creative layout solutions, large and small. Myself, I went small. Here's a link to my layout. Good luck with yours and start a new thread with lots of pics to keep us updated.
  8. Lots of great tips so far! I'll add, DON'T GIVE UP. I've designed many models in LDD and built them all with BL purchases. With hundreds of recent orders my experience is parts will cost $.10 on average and shipping $4 per order in the US. Your 2100 part loco should run $210 plus shipping plus motor and battery and PF gear. As stated above you need to do two things; substitute rare or expensive parts or colors and then shop wisely on BL. Good luck, you can do it!

    [MOC] "Feldbahn" System - Toy Train

    Wow, that's great progress! I really didn't mean for you to go to the extra effort of building another. The battery on it's side is an interesting idea.

    [MOC] "Feldbahn" System - Toy Train

    I love the look and the scale of these. Think I'll build some. My layout is PF the IR kind. Think the green engine with red chassis could fit it? What would you design for PF?
  11. Wow, wow, wow this is so full of awesomeness! Your recolor and changes to the depot look great. Everything looks great.

    [MOC] Romanian Wagon (CFR)

    Doesn't matter, go with buffers. I try to make my train realistic but I also decided to use only stock trucks and buffers on all my cars. They work great, look great and provide a degree of continuity from one car to the next.

    [MOC] Romanian Wagon (CFR)

    I pasted your model above to make it easier to look them over. I like your MOC! I like short train cars that are 6 studs wide. Only changes I would make would be make the connecting doors 2-3 plates taller and maybe replace that large under carriage section with some smaller, slightly more detailed touches to better represent the original. But I would totally run that car on as is on my layout!
