  1. The Lego Railway Series

    A series of trains from a Lego Railway!

    The Sodor China Clay Company Bagnall 0-4-0STs! Bill & Ben. They are based off of the port of par engines Alfred and Judy (shown off at the end in green) The model is equipped with Circuit Cubes battery and motor.

    Here's James! An L&YR class 28 with extended front running board and added leading wheels. His front two drivers are attached to a normal Train Motor. no closeups of the tender this time, its the same exact build as Gordon, just red.

    The grey handrail is a custom part I mocked up. its a stand in for what I want to do, but I wanna do it as legally as possible so I'm still not sure exactly how I'm gonna handle it. The thicker sections all along it are small pieces of the rigid flex tube cut to size, and the thinner part will be some kind of wire or string. But in the render its an antenna with the bottom cut off.

    This time is my Biggest and Best. The LNER A1 Pacific, "Gordon". (With the dinky 3500 Gallon Fowler tender lol) The Tender isn't actually quite finished yet, but its all undercarriage and interior work. What it looks like on the outside is how its gonna stay. Inside the boiler are 2 M motors that power the front and back driver wheels, the tender will carry the battery. (PU system) The rods work like butter and are *mostly* legal! I've actually started building this model physically mostly because of the nature of the front end, I couldn't problem solve that part digitally when building it. Shoutout to a user here Ts__ for answering some question about his LMS Black 5 that I've used as inspiration for how I tackled this guy, and by extension a few other engines I've yet to show off as well as the idea for the articulated front bufferbeam.

    Gordon and James are actually finished save the tender, still working on finalizing the fowler Tender. Henry is WIP, he's giving me a bit of trouble. I'm just taking my time uploading what I've already got. other things I've finished are Bill & Ben, Annie & Clarabel, The Fllying Scotsman, Bertie the Bus, Rusty, and Skarloey. but I've got more than double that number of things that are WIP.

    Here's another engine! this time its Percy. I based him on the GWR 1338. He's powered by Circuit Cubes. again like Thomas, he's fully buildable and 99% legal (he would be normal green but it looked weird, it was really dark for some reason, so i just made him bright green for the renders.)

    oh yeah absolutely it would be blind. It just looks nicer for renders to keep the flange.

    Thanks. I know ill be able to, atm its just a matter of sourcing the bricks. I don't have the $ at the moment to just drop on it.

    Hello there! I'm The LEGO Railway Series! For those of you who don't know me from twitter, I model characters from The Railway Series (Thomas the Tank Engine) but I do so as realistically as possible using the actual basis for the characters. So I posted here on Eurobricks once before and just never kept up with the site or the thread. So I'm just gonna start over again! I'm gonna be using this thread as a central place to post all of my stuff to make things easier for myself. So what better model to get this started off with than Thomas! Everyone knows Thomas is an E2, so that's what I've built. He's got as many bells and whistles as I could cram onto the model. He's fully motorized using Power Functions (IR receiver and an M motor) and is powered by a 9v battery in the firebox area. (it needs a custom wire adaptor to transfer the power to the PF components) He also has an entire cab interior with controls and everything. Aside from the side rods which use modified liftarms to attach the flex tubing, the 9v battery adaptor wire, and some custom wheels (I plan on using Breckland Bricks wheels), the entire model is Legal and buildable. Unfortunately I've not been able to physically build this model yet, but I plan on it by before the year is up!

    hah, this is exactly the same way I build. I've actually learned so much doing it this way because I hate compromising the proportions and the looks of my builds once I've got everything how I want it. Though I'm currently stuck with strictly digital building since I don't have the luxury yet of lots of physical bricks to test out some of my more questionably areas. like right now I'm sweating over the clearance for the leading wheels and the piston on my A1 Pacific. It looks like it should work, but the clearance is soo close I cant be 100% sure it would work unless I test it physically, not to mention the design of the piston itself is fighting me.

    I don't know what to tell you. its all working for me and others. well if it helps, my username on twitter is the same as here.

    I was having a hard time figure out how to get them in the post and forgot. ive got everything on my twitter atm so that's the only place i can link to. yeah Stud.io. I didn't even know you could do that, good to know thank you. I'll have to try it out next time I make some renders.

    Oh wow thank you, I wasn't expecting a full multicolored diagram! very clear to understand. also, that's really interesting and I love how you've done it. the sloped tile was the area I though would have the interesting technique but you pulled a switcharoo on me.
