  1. Completely awesome! I agree about the ladders falling off! When I reinspected my model, I found that I had made a similar adjustment. I used a 1 x 4 plate, but I think your solution of inverted sloped bricks is better so I have updated my model with your idea. As to the lamps. Well I seem to remember doing quite a bit of experimentation with those as well as the exhaust pipe that comes out of the top of the engine housing and never being quite satisfied with the result. But as 162 has them I think a bit more experimenting is required...
  2. Fantastic to see you have been inspired by my updated version of 162 and built one yourself. Is it identical to mine or have you made any enhancements? I'd love to see a photo!

    Fantastic model! Have you seen this film of Fred Dibnah climbing all the way to the top?
  4. In 1900, a second deep level tube railway was opened beneath London's streets by the Central London Railway company. Some of these stations still exist forming part of London Underground's Central Line. This model illustrates how one of these stations would have looked in the 1930s. Station facade with office building above: The facade hinges open to reveal the ticket hall and wooden panelled entrances to two lifts: These stations were designed by the architect Harry Bell Measures. Unfortunately none have survived in the their original condition as they have either been demolished or had their lifts replaced by escalators: Link to album on Flickr https://www.flickr.c...57644218199203/

    Lord's London Underground tube station

    @RednWhite - Ahhh, there used to be a Lord's station http://www.abandonedstations.org.uk/Lords_station.html @lightningtiger - The end of the green string is tied to a 1 x 1 plate with Clip Light which is in turn connected to a boat/train weight which hangs free. This keeps the string taught.
  6. You are correct jonwil, it is one of these - http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=2706 It's surrounded by one of these - http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=2555 and a 1 x 1 tile on the other side. All mounted on this bracket - http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=2436 The four white dots are thin slices of one of these - http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=3957
  7. This type of London Underground train is called Standard Tube Stock and ran on the Bakerloo, Central, Northern and Piccadilly lines. They were built between 1923 and 1934. More pics in the Flickr set:

    [LDD MOC] London Tube train

    Excellent design. Is the car 6 or 7 studs wide?
  9. Another London Underground station for your enjoyment. This is my sixth Underground themed creation to date. This model is a fairly pure build compared to some of my others. There is a bit of black tape at the top of the curved windows and some of plates around the hinges have been modified to achieve the correct fit. I also had to drill a hole through the 2 x 2 green jumper tiles to let the string pass through. Flickr set:

    12v train madness!

    Well blow me down, this takes me back a bit, sorry to keep bumping a very old thread! Unfortunately due to change of circumstances I had to slim down the collection quite substantially. I had to disassemble the track and sell some of the rolling stock, although I have kept the real gems of the collection. Also, to be brutally honest, the layout did not get the use it deserved in my house so I wanted to relinquish some of it to a more worthy owner. @Ben - the base board is approx 230 cm long and 122 cm wide. I still have it, so if you live in the south east of England you can buy it from me for a small fee!! @James - a great story. It must have been rather baffling to arrive at Legoland and not find any grey 12v sets!
  11. Thanks guys and gals for your kind words. I know it's a bit controversial painting and modifying parts, but what can you do if the parts you need to recreate a building don't exist? Well you have to improvise! @Blue Brick - I regret to report that the curved window is a mangled part. It's one of these with the top cut off and some blue stickers applied to make a window frame: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=6059 (Image from Bricklink)
  12. B-T-03D Another model of a London Underground tube station. This time it's Osterley station on the Piccadilly line in West London. Station designed by Stanley Heaps and opened in 1934:

    Superb! My favourite bit is the toilet brush in the batnroom.

    London Georgian Townhouse c1905

    Totally superb! Love the whole thing, especially the front door and surrounds. Looks exactly like the real thing.
