  1. Wonderful collection. Great work on the stickers!
  2. This is the "Stadt Bahnhof" (city station) of Trossingen. (Trossingen has two stations, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trossingen_Railway for details about the interesting history of this special railway). The current modernised state of the building does not show anything of the original timber framing. (See this website for historical images: http://www.trossinger-eisenbahn.de/geschichte/ ). Faller made a version of this station so it can be seen on many model-railway layouts in Germany. I must admit I mainly used images of these models found in the web while building. It was shown in Trossingen near the original building from November 2015-March 2016 together with the second railway station of Trossingen and a historical train: https://www.flickr.com/photos/66636161@N00/albums/72157660617116837 It's not the first version in LEGO. Daniel Kampa built this years ago and called it "Stadoerfla station": http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=183388 It has no interior since the visible snotted walls are to weak to carry the massive roof. Many of the elements are held by a single clip or stud.
  3. That's wonderful! After playing with SBrick and ESP8266 and BlueSmartControl I learned that - besides automation with sensors and computer - I really need manual control devices that is not my smart phone. At some point you want to stop the computer and simply "play" with the trains, and that's not much fun with the smartphone. For the trains on plastic tracks with batteries it has to be something "wireless". But for switches your solution seems perfect.

    The BVmot is a nice train. All of your trains look very realistic. Great collection!
  5. Karlsruhe Tram (GT8-70D/N)

    Thank you. First focus was getting the scale right and have a tram that can drive on any LEGO layout. But I'm planning to built a 6-axis version. I think I will work on the gap and your solutions looks promising.
  6. Karlsruhe Tram (GT8-70D/N)

    Thank you for this feedback! It was a temporary layout in the living room. My wife visited a friend for the weekend and the kids and I removed almost all the furniture and carpet... approx. 90cm (35 + 8 + 16 + 8 + 35 studs, with 4 gaps each approx. 2 1/2 studs => 112 studs = 896mm)
  7. Hello, More than two years ago I built one of the trams of Karlsruhe with LEGO. It's the 8-axis "GT8-70D/N" (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/GT8-70D/N ). Now I found time to take pictures. It's a "one-direction" tram, so only the right side has doors(just black window frames, nothing to open here): It's modular and can be converted into a 6-axis "GT6-70D/N": It's built 7 wide and first and last bogie use the small train wheels. The battery box is located above the first bogie, so the tram won't derail easily. The first small module has a PF train motor: But even with these small wheels it operates well on curves and switches: Hope you like it! Steffen
