    Branch line station from a well known franchise

    Thanks for the offer. All the minifig scale stuff, such as luggage, plants and figs is yet to go on. as for the rest, some of what you’re talking about are conscious aesthetic choices, aiming to simplify and smooth the building. I’m an 80s LEGO kinda guy. And since it’s a small layout with a kid/toy theme I’d like the viewers to look at it and go ‘I could do that (given right coloured pieces)’. There’s a place for ‘how did you do that?’ builds, but I’m not aiming for that here. That said, I did note the big blank wall in the middle which needs.. something, and throwing some profile bricks into corners isn’t a bad idea either. What isn’t apparent from the single picture is the station is a single solid unit with no interior, it sits on tiles and a handful of studs, but comes off easily for transport. I can hold it upside down and shake it a bit without worrying about pieces falling off.

    Yes, but my version doesn’t have the grey face or the number 1.
  5. I’m working on a tiny layout, 128 studs by 96. Featuring small wheel base British steam engines (I’ve previously shown my green one). Here is the station for the layout. more to come, stay tuned.

    Ideas for New Train Sets

    Sorry, I realise my reply came across as harsh. LEGO is a kids toy company. They want to make their products as simple and playable as possible. Making mums and dads find and buy a seperate pack to motorise a train is neither simple nor good play value. A train box with everything needed in it is what parents want.

    Ideas for New Train Sets

    Some simple thought would show why that’s not going to happen and why, if it did, it would be a bad thing.
  8. As Hinkley mentioned I wasn’t a fan of the no PMs I’ve been trying to think why that is. For me it breaks down in two parts. First, as someone in an uncommon timezone, stuff often happens while I sleep or work. This means if I post in thread, there can be a long delay before I am responded to, it at all. With PMs included the flow is better, I’m able to back and forth with individuals over specific points rather than only relying on people being around at convenient times to reply in thread. Secondly, it’s another criteria to judge activity. If someone is replying to me lots, but not posting in thread, that’s quite different to someone posting in thread but ignoring my PM. Thirdly, people say stuff in PM that they’d never say in thread. That stuff is gold and it would slow the game to lose it.
  9. Because I didn’t know Araveea was the investigator (and I wasn’t going to ask straight out) I was concerned that she might have been an investigated traitor who had them been told Coralaaze was scum and was reticent in publishing that info. Admittedly that was very unlikely, but it did mean I didn’t trust her. If I had, the arguments against Zander on the day I was lynched would have been stronger.
  10. I did say that. I was frustrated there was a non grogon result on me out there and I was still getting votes. Although in hindsight you probably woulda voted for me anyway since you were the other player against the wall.
  11. Gratz everyone! Apologies to day 5 players. If I hadn’t imploded it might have been a quicker game!

    MILS modules with track.

    For our layouts, the track is ballasted independently of the base and sits on a layer of tiles, with occasional stud join points.

    High nose (maersk mod)

    I never bought the maersk train. But after watching one tootle around our club layout I was inspired to see if I could build one from what I had. It was never going to be blue and grey, but having the panels in red lead me to that colour. Here is an progress shot, one element type needs replacing with the correct colour, otherwise it’s ready to roll. And of course, it stiill needs lettering and numbering. Any tips on that would be appreciated. And yes. I’m aware the GP-40-2 never had a high nose variant and the SD-40-2, which did, properly had Co trucks. Perhaps I should splurge on some of zephyr’s truck frames...
