    [WIP] LEGO Train Layout: Old Bukit Timah Railway Station

    Hi Farouq, A very promising project. I love those tiny layouts, full of little details. A layout with a bridge slightly increased, over a small river, or a valley will add an interesting depth to the scenery. Maybe there will be enough space to add and hide a turnaround in the forrest. With kind regards Martin

    LEGO SSN 01 1075.

    When I saw the first pictures on Flickr I knew the final creation would be good. But the sound and the lighting make it a superb model.

    Steam-locomotive DR BR 38.2-3 XII H2 and custom 3D-printed rods

    Good evening, Thank you all for your feedback again. Now i can also provide some real-life pictures and a short video with a test ride. I hope you like it. By the way the custom rods are already available on our website, the wheels are currently prototypes but will be available soon. DR BR 38.2-3 on Youtube I wasn´t able to implement the video right here. So i hope that´s fine too Flickr-Folder with more pictures With kind regards Martin

    Steam-locomotive DR BR 38.2-3 XII H2 and custom 3D-printed rods

    Thank you all, for your praise and the kind words. And a special thanks to ReplicaOfLife for this explanation i could nothing more add to. @ SteamSewnEmpire: To be honest I don´t like the smoke stack too. The example has this edge i tried to replicate but the cone is to much formed. Do you know a different solution?
  9. Good evening community, Today i want to present our latest realized model. The XII H2 was especially designed for the hilly terrain of saxony. It has been built in Chemnitz between 1910 and 1927. The model consists of approx 1121 parts and it´s about 58 studs long. The model is a customer-wish and it´s designed for a motorization with power-functions as well as powered-up and for sure with the old 9V train-motor. All the electronics like motor, battery-box and IR-reciever take place in the large coal-tender. All the wheels are from Big Ben Bricks. The main wheels are XL-drivers, the wheels on the front-bogie are medium and at the tender are small train wheels. To make this locomotive with the low hanging cylinders suitable for curves, i separated the cylinders horizontally. The upper part is fixed to the main frame and the lower part is connected to the bogie and could swivel left and right. Special attention was paid to the boiler with the golden rings and the golden accents like in the example. The technic to create the boiler rings was taken over from the DR BR 01 of Simon Jakobi (Dr.Snotson). The instruction of the DR BR 38.2-3 is no available on our website. As a speciality i also want to use this opportunity to present our latest news. Since November the 1st we offer different 3D-printed components in our shop too. We offer different rod-designs in various dimensions, as well as rod sets or special components like blind-wheels or customer solutions. This offer is probably most interresting for customers in europe because we´re located in Germany but we ship worldwide too. And here with custom 3D printed parts.

    Saxon steamship | Preservation of the Dresden steamship fleet

    Thank you Pdaitabird.
  11. Dear community, Today I would like to advertise a campaign and present a MOC to you, which basically does not belong to my core competence, but which I nevertheless enjoyed developing very much. But now lets start at the beginning... In the middle of June one of my customers from Dresden wrote me a kind e-mail. He informed me that the Saxon paddle steamer fleet, which is the oldest and largest paddle steamer fleet in the world, is currently in economic troubles. Not only because of Covid-19, but also because of the increased low water in the past years. Locals, fans and friends want to support the association "Weiße Flotte Dresden (white fleet dresden)" with various activities. The idea of my customer was to create a construction instruction for a steamship model and to sell it. A major part of the proceeds were to go to the campaign. I wanted to help. I wouldn't call myself a real fan of steam ships, but after some research I was fascinated by these old heavy machinery, like the steamers on the rails. The problem, clearly, I had never built such a model before, but once my interest was caught and after choosing a suitable original, I started working on it. It gave me great pleasure to see the model grow, also the acquisition of new building techniques from the sector ships was exciting. But soon it became clear that a scale model would be about 1.5m long. This is of course way too big to make a instruction for private customers. So I designed a model in reduced size. I paid special attention to the recognition value by the colouring and the proportions. Various details were reproduced in the exterior and on the decks, but also in the interior. For example the steam engine, which can be driven together with the two paddle wheels by a Power-Functions or Powered Up motor. The model is built in minifig size. The individual decks can be removed individually and the interior can be played on. The instructions are available directly on our homepage or in our Ebay-Shop for 14,99€ / $17.99. From each sold steamship instruction, we pass on 11€ / $13. We support the crowdfunding initiative "Preservation of the Dresden Steamship Fleet", which was founded by Michael Hillmann. Further information about the initiative can be found here. Many thanks and best wishes Martin | www.bricks-on-rails.de Inspired by the steamship "Dresden" The lifeboat is also present The roofs can be removed, the bridge offers space for the captain There are several seats at the rear, the lower deck is not equipped. The view of the "steam engine" In the front saloon there is, besides some seating, also a small galley The ship is divided into individual modules The dimensions of the finished model

    Lego 10277 - Crocodile Locomotive

    The window-panels for the front and the rear are available in blue, so it could be possible, if you switch red to the bottom and blue to the top. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=17454#T=S&C=7&O={"color":7,"iconly":0}

    Lego 10277 - Crocodile Locomotive

    Hey everyone, A few seconds ago i received a few exclusive pictures, including pictures from the interior, the motorization concept and more. :-) I´m just kidding, after the high-quality pictures were released yesterday, they cought my interest, so i did some reverse engineering. I started with the envelope and went deeper and deeper into the model. At the end i created some assemblies. Obviously i couldn't recreate everything but i think it went out quite well. I was very surprised of how simple some solutions could be. For the things i couldn´t see or recognize on the pictures i found possible solutions. I also created the interior, which could be removed, and also the motorization. The L-motor of the powered up system isn´t included in stud.io right now, so i took the PF-motor. Hopefully, that´s a personal goal, i´ve got a match of atleast 70%, what do you think? I will double check this, as soon as the instructions are available at LEGO. I did a colour change into dark-green, this version looks nice too. I also compared this model to mine and there are some details which i like more, like the panthos or the shape of the front window section. To answer your questions a lighting solution in the front isn´t possible without bigger modification, but on some pictures it looks like LEGO installed a cab-lighting. I´m quite sure that the motorization will be installed in the cab, the two noses are not big enough to place a motor and gearing. And the space in the cabin fits perfectly. If you want some detail-pictures of special sections just let me know. And for those who could not longer wait, i can also provide the model as a stud.io file, just send me a PM. Remember the model i´ve created is based as much as possible on the pictures, published by LEGO, i do not claim any rights for that. Only for the cars and the SBB Ce 6/8 in the last two pictures. Hope you enjoy. With kind regards Martin

    Because only one motor is required, I expect a motorization solution in the cab in the middle. The two noses will probably be identical. The two axles beneath the cabin will be driven are fixed in their direction and cannot steer. The design is like a three wagon solution, which are connected with liftarms or anything else.
