    @ivanlan9 I have practiced speedskating for a long time: a few studs can't hurt my feet ;)

    Cinematic train - T-rex crash

    After the 80's layout I wanted to do "a project in between", which got a bit out of hand. I wanted to do a simple train crash video, but I gave it a cinematic look. Especially the turning camera which looks like the Matrix camera effect was difficult to accomplish: a lot of trial&error and timing issues were involved to get it rightly done. Enjoy the result, let me know what you think it!

    Lego train 80's layout with all 12V trains

    Thanks for the kind comments! It has been quite some work but I'm totally happy with the result.
  9. The past 1,5 years I've been busy building an 80's town with most of the iconic classic town sets and all 12V grey era train sets. I started with buying sets that I didn't have yet, deyellowing all white and grey (including train tracks) parts which took longer than expected:I wasn't done when the summer of 2019 became autumn and by that time the sun wasn't strong enough (if the sun was visible anyway) so I built a de-yellowing device. I've used a total of 40 liters of peroxide solution to de-yellow most parts. After that I could start building the layout and town. The town consists of the most iconic classic town sets and three train loops from the 12V grey era. All 12V trains are running on these loops, including a locomotive from the 7777 train ideas book and a 12V crocodile MOC. There are 19 remote controls for points, signs, decouplers and a level crossing. Further more I have used over 120 original 12V light bricks for lighting. These two combined results in a total wire length of around 350 meters. Enjoy! :D

    Lego 10277 - Crocodile Locomotive

    Thanks, I was hoping for some other pictures of the thing. I'll try using this picture but I see it has some exotic non available parts like the doors and the nose pieces.

    Lego 10277 - Crocodile Locomotive

    The locomotive looks totally awesome!! Instant buy for sure. I didn't know that there has been a 12V prototype for a crocodile! Does anyone know where to find pictures of this prototype, I'd like to see if I can build it for my 12V layout.

    Train-mounted camera

    The camera in the OP's mentioned video is a Sony X3000R. I use it as well. The main advantage of this camera against the GoPro is that it has its lens centered, which the GoPro doesn't have what results in a shot which is not centered on the train track.
