    LEGO IDEAS: Homage to 4551

    https://ideas.lego.com/projects/8cd93420-171c-4ae2-b5a2-0c9d7bbd7412 Hi, please check out my new entry for LEGO IDEAS. I mixed up my latest DB E94/194 version with the coloursceme of one of the greatest LEGO locos. If you like my rendition please support my idea and check out my other entry: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/5c87154b-3396-4343-ac5e-42a5f10bd988 DB BR 194 LEGO IDEAS 4551 SIMON JAKOBI #01 by Simon Jakobi, auf Flickr

    Thank you very much. Your feedback really means a lot to me!

    Thank you, all! Although I flooded Martin with work (E91, E69, Schnellzugwagen Gruppe 29 (SPOILERALERT!!!)), he was fast as lightning. Give him some time to recover. I am sure he will cover your wish in the very near future.

    DB E94 / 194 6th version

    First of all, THX!!! Thx, Black Knight! You are right concerning the wheel size issue but please note the following facts: The E94 on bricks-on-rails is NOT my design. It was designed by the owner of the site, Martin. It is one of his masterpieces. My first E94 had S-wheels, that`s why later on I choose M-sized wheels for the E17, E18 and E19. I do not scale. Most important for me is the balance between functionality and recognition factor.
  5. DB BR 50 Kabinentender 3rd version by Simon Jakobi, auf Flickr Hi, folks! Beside my E94 and 01 (spoileralert: more footage to come) I liftet my BR 50 recently. I extended the cab by 1 stud and switched to the design of my 01/03. Therefore I also had to work on the shape of the corresponding front of the tender. I also added some detail to the valve gear (another steal from my 01/03). Furthermore she did receive a skirt. I hope this is the correct englisch term in this context... Greeting, Simon!

    http://P1110591 by Simon Jakobi, auf Flickr To be honest this is my 6th version of the german crocodil. Now she shares the drivetrain with her swiss sister. Each truck is powered by a PF-L-motor. All axles are driven. The third and fourth axle are blind. Therefore the trucks are completly new. I also worked on the fronts of the noses and the shape the roof. I hope, you like the result!

    DB118 & Blauer Enzian

    Maybe I can burn myself joining this pledge! What we can learn from this topic so far: Emanuele build and showcased a beautiful train composed of slightly modificated "Blauer Enzian"-rollingstock created by Thomas and a slightly modificated E18 created by me. To be honest my second version of my E18 was inspired by Thomas E18 at some point (sidewalls). Maybe I will design a "Blauer Enzian" some day too. Now that`s kind of a true circle of inspiration. That`s what our passion is all about... Love it! Designing and selling instructions for a MOC of someone else without his permission is a no-go. If one of my MOCs comes to close to someone else`s solutions of critical characteristics or is composed of more solutions of other different designers than my own, maybe I still would start a topic or thread and publish some photos but I would not waste a single thought about selling it. On the other hand, designing and promoting these instructions is really hard work. Over the last years Martin gained a lot of expirience and stepped up his game creating an outstanding portfolio (instructions and 3d-printed-parts) on the european market with all its special implications and deserves the respect of our community. The more happy I am - Thomas, correct me if I am wrong or have misunderstood your last post - that you guys did come to an agreement!

This prototype was my first choice for LEGO IDEAS, because due to the smaller wheel size she does not rely on any third party parts. Unfortunately the prussian P10 / Baureihe 39 is not that famous than Baureihe 01 or 03.

    DB BR 03 - LEGO IDEAS

    Dear train-, creator-, collector- and ideas-headz all around the world! Since the raise from my dark age on the one hand I steadily gained solid experience in the design of various train-MOCs. But on the other hand, I always wondered which of my large loco rooster I should submit to LEGO-ideas. Although I was asked lots of times to do so again and again, obviously most of my locos are not suitable for the TLC-program due to my individual approaches to the design of details or windows or they depend on old, rare or third-party-parts like M- or XXL-sized-wheels or custom rods which TLC would not even feature in our wildest dreams. For sure the “blue lady” – the german Baureihe 01 is the all-time flagship of my big fleet of german locos. I love the extraordinaire dark blue livery with silver boiler rings which provides a perfect contrast to the classic red chassis with the huge XXL-wheels. My version is numbered with the birthday of my beloved wife. But as I mentioned before extra-large sized wheels, rare and abandoned parts are not an option in this competition. That`s why I chose the little sister of the Baureihe 01 – the Baureihe 03. Together these steam locos were the backbone of the high-speed passenger trains after World War II uniting Europe again. Now this is the moment to leave the “pro-MOC-attitude” concerning the issues discussed above behind, change the builder’s perspective and deal with the real limitations of a TLC-designer – all way down the long road from the very beginning to the bitter sweet end of the design-process. It felt like I had to melt down all of my skills and solutions before I could merge these two worlds. First of all, my design features smaller L-sized-TLC-wheels. Next step was shortening of the engine and tender by several studs. Furthermore, I eliminated all weak “adult-solutions” and excluded all rare and old parts. You can use an PU- or PF-L-Motor placed underneath the boiler between the last main axle and the rear axle to power the main axle via worm screw-drivetrain (pro/realistic driving characteristics) or put up to two PU- or PF-train-motors underneath the tender (for the speed-headz and crash-kids among you). There is enough space inside the tender for both a PF-IR-Receiver and a PF-batery box or a single PU-Hub of course. Did I mention lights? You can light up 2 of the headlights and 2 of the rear lights with PF or PU. The result is a pro-like-design loaded with tons of details and a high recognition faktor which is already 100 % TLC-conform. Calling it a product does not sound that cool at all. Last but not least, stats: the loco itself as a length of approx. 64 studs and consists of 1.580 parts in 287 lots. And… yes, you can also build it in standard black DB- or TLC-livery. Remember those LEGO steamers from the so-called grey era like 7750? I hope, you like my TLC-approach to the Baureihe 03 and I really would appreciate either support or as well critics. Anyways, leave a comment! Although, this is not meant to be a push-and-pull-train, push it hard! It is time for a European steamer, the race is on, lets make LEGO-trains great again, Simon!

    Train stuff on Ideas getting approved? Forget it!

    It is always a good idea to start such a diskussion with: "Believe me!" They swallow almost everything. Swallowing an old loose TLC magnet from an old TLC buffer/holder is not a really challenging task for a toddler because of their drop like form and - what is way more important - neutral taste. That is why there is a golden rule: "If there is one foreign body, check for other foreign bodies."

    Train stuff on Ideas getting approved? Forget it!

    Let me bring some light to the dark magnet chapter. One swallowed magnet is no problem as long as it has found its way to the stomach. But imagine if a child swallowes two or more magnets step by step and these magnets travel down the road. When they reach the bowels they will connect even if they are in different stages of the bowels and will impact the sidewalls of the bowels between them. This leads to local necrosis of the sidewall. The result is a hole in the bowels which leads us straigh forward to peritonitis, septic shock and certain death. The magnet issue is a true classic paediatric emergency case. I have worked as a doc for over a decade in a big childrens hospital and have seen several severe cases. None of the kids did die thanks to quick diagnosis in most cases but some did loose part of their bowels due to necrosis and inflammation. In one case several neodyme magnets formed a bizarre ring inside the belly of a young boy. Thats why these toys should be kept away from young kids and TLC covers its magnets with plastic and connects them to even bigger parts.
