    LBSCR I3

    Hey there! I'm quite astonisehd on "your" take! Not only does it look similar to my take, but actually is pretty darn identical to it apart from the colour change. For everyone else: I did design this model for a friend on request, but never published any pics, because I did it for him. Here's a pic from back then in it's original brown colour scheme: I did however upload the LDD file on brickshelf here. You can actually see that the folder was last modified 2 years ago, back when I uploaded that file. Taking inspiration from other peoples' models - great Claiming ownership for somebody elses ideas - not so great

    Interesting prototype and nice rendition of it! Any chances we'll see it in real bricks someday?
  3. Love all these additions and ideas, will definitely get some when they're out! The rails themselves would've already been enough, but the windows really cought my eyes as well!!! @michaelgale Will the switch rails also have current or will they be fully plastic like the Lego 9V version? If it's all plastic there might be a problem as your switch rails seem to be longer than Lego's switch rails. One thing I'm not too keen about is the "dummy" pickup bogie - most time one would need a power pickup is when there's no way to use the motor bogie as it's unprototypical. In my case, and I'm sure there are many others like me, I'd really like to have a power pickup for a steam engine (or really any engine for which the motor bogie's wheel distance is unprototypical). But for that I'd need a spoked wheel as power pickup and more flexibility on the wheel distance - not a fixed distance like with a pickup bogie (that probably would have the same design as the motor bogie but without motor). Something like a power pickup wheelset which can be placed seperately anywhere. Something like this (that's just a bad sketch by me) Is there anything in planning to make this possible?
  4. Hey guys! Don't know how many of you have already heard the news about Lego acquiring Bricklink, but I thought this might be a relevant topic to discuss here, since it most probably will have an impact on our hobby. I know they said they want to keep it the same, but I'm not too sure about that. Especially in the Lego train community 3D printed parts have a big impact in giving a variety of parts to a niche market. However some of you might have noticed that Lego recently took action against some 3D-printed parts (including custom train wheels) to be taken down from online 3D-printing providers. Here's a quote frome the Brothers Brick interview I know some people have custom 3D printed parts (eg. connection rods) in their bricklink stores, so this could really be a problem! I'd really like to know whether anyone here has more information or what you guys think will happen!? Cheers, Nick

    Custom Train Wheels Combined Topic

    Wow, love how they look, will definitely get some at one point! Thanks so much for this! Do those drivers have grooves for a rubber band? I can't see it very well, but it would be great to know. Don't know if they would be for great use though as I'm not sure how well torque would be for such large wheels...
  6. I've been waiting for an important order since 2 weeks with no reaction from the seller - no tracking ID, nothing. Even IF the order arrives soon I'm not sure I'll make it in time as I'd need one last order for the rest of the parts... So a grace period would be very much appreciated, but right now I'm sadly not too confident, that even with that grace period I'll make it in time

    Bricksby station - starting a layout [WIP]

    @kiwinewt Haha, had to get my hands on those brown fence pieces as soon as I saw them - I knew I'd put them to good use @Pdaitabird Thanks! I'll see how this will develop... @Roadmonkeytj Thanks, seems like I got the style right

    Bricksby station - starting a layout [WIP]

    Thanks guys! @zephyr1934 @NotToScale Yes, agree with you about the sign! I do intend to make the platform modular with the signs on a different part of the platform. Here is a render from 2 years ago (can't believe I didn't post this) Bricksby Station by ScotNick1, on Flickr Interesting what you say about the colour of the signs though, never thought about making them black - will think about that. The bridge and a bit of the platform in the upper pic is already built on the way by ScotNick1, on Flickr But just recently redid the front of the station to have a larger canopy that makes some nice use of parts, created some new benches and planted some flowers to add some green Thoughts on the changes?

    Really like this! The building fits perfectly in the layout and the style of the building itself is great too! Especially like what you've done to make it modular, similar to what I'm aiming eith my soon to be buult buildings.

    MOC, WIP, Catenary for rail yards

    Not sure about those - while I really like the idea and am all for unusual part usages I can't but think they are a little bit too chunky. Right now I don't know of a better (and sturdy) way to build one though. Regarding overhead lines in general I did some try with the new zip lines from Lego some time ago which works with the pantograph actually touching the lines Have a look in thisvideo if you're interested: "working" overhead line by ScotNick1, on Flickr

    Bricksby station - starting a layout [WIP]

    Been some time since I last posted in this topic (can't believe it's been 4 years!) As I've now built my platform bridge some time ago I thought I'd finally give it a go and want to build that station building too. But before that, I made some changes and wanted to ask you what you think Changed the back door entrance to pop out a little bit more and make it less plain. Also added the 3 tall windows at the left and a rain gutter drainage (and LDD went crazy as I wanted to bend it at the bottom ). What do you think of the changes? Any suggestions?

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    I could do that, the picture shown isn't very up-to-date though - my current version uses 3D-printed drivers and I'm not sure if that is allowed on Lego ideas. Does anyone know more about that or can check that out? I don't actually have a pic with the details I added recently, but here's how it looks with 3D-printed drivers: LBSCR E2 - finally done by ScotNick1, on Flickr

    The DUPLO 10874 Steam Train

    Can't say very much, only thing I heard is that some parts aren't produced every year - so sometimes designers have to stick to specific parts for their models and have to give up on others. So I assume that with Duplo it's the same, that they have one production run which can last for some time, and after that they stop. It's probable that they might do a 2nd run or more if it proofs to be a good runner in stores...
