    Union Pacific SD60

    Very nice model, esp. since it's mainly 6 wide. Well done.

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    LEGO recycles a lot of themes, sometimes quite often (Police, Fire), sometimes they leave (many) years in between. What I would consider possible are the following themes: - harbour - farm - TV station (last one was in the '80s) - outdoor / safari / hicking / rafting

    [MOC] Intercity Rheingold

    I really, really like this MOC. Mostly, because it would fit in very well with the line of creator expert trains we've had, but also with the current city theme. It's not overly complicated and reminds my in many ways of the 7740 and later metroliner. Those were cool trains because they offered great resemblance to a prototype, w/o being overly complicated. Yes, I know LEGO is a child's toy (when it comes to trains, that is), but this is something they could design and sell at a fair price. It has more play-value to it with the opening doors and panoramic roof and can be sold at a fair price with an oval track lay-out and basic platform.
  5. I like the lay-out of this small station, but it's still a bit rough. I am by no means a good MOC'er, but I would add tiles (1x1, 1x2 and 2x2) to make a pattern on the inside of the building and to smoothen things out on the outside (you could use 1x1 round tiles or the commonly used 2x2). Add some plants and garbage cans (in and out) and instead of using slopes to connect the platform to the track, I would close the front and add some ladders to give railway personnel acces to the track.

    Introducing Brick Train Depot

    Good luck guys, I'll certainly take a look but will not be buying since I'm an addict of Euro models.

    10261 LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster

    I wasn't a fan of the previous amusement park themed sets, but this RC is just amazing. Brings me back to my youth when I spend (to many) hours behind my old desktop, playing roller coaster tycoon :) )... I must have for me, even with it's higher price.

    2018 Lego Trains

    I agree that when parting out a set or using it for mocs, small pieces can be very handy, but, the last cargo train was a well designed set with enough detail for the adience the LEGO group targets... The LEGO metroliner f.i. also used premoulded fronts and did not have a very high piece count, still, it was a good looking set.

    Still, I have the feeling LEGO has 'upped' the piece count by adding loads of small pieces, something they have been doing often the last couple of years, but which isn't always asked for.
  11. This is an amazing build. You can feel the buzz from a busy harbour !
