  1. Incredible amount of detail! I'm always happy when I find a new posting of your wonderful train models. Einfach großartig!

    Wonderful MOC, you did a great job with the modern curved shape of this train.
  3. Wonderful engine! I like the blue and yellow colour scheme.

    [WIP] Lego monorails. [Custom Rail Systems (CRS)]

    Thank you @FiliusRucilo and @djm! After I have been to exhibitions with Masao Hidaka's original design in 2014 and 2015 I put away the tracks and trains. I planned to improve the trains since I found the same wobbling and curve-speed issues - but never found the time to do so. Then this thread started... Finally I found some time to set up a layout and test the designs of @FiliusRucilo and @LegoMonorailFan. Both designs work perfectly on tight curves and even inclinations are no problem for the trains - with unmodified couplings. I also could remove a complete layer of bricks from the original track design. And everything fits on 4x4 baseplates: ! Yesterday I started fiddling around with curved tracks and gear racks to build a working switch. And today I find the instructions! Thank you all! This is great!

    Cargo Train using Duplo Parts

    Yes, feel free to use and evolve this design ( and use the instructions in the flickr album) . I'm only "standing on the shoulders of giants" - I have learned so much from the community. It's a "hose, rigid 3mm" cut to 2L (16mm)

    Wonderful engine and wagon. Very realisitc.
  9. Years ago I found an image of a LEGO coach using Duplo part 2032. Unfortunately I do not find this anymore... So I cannot link to the original author. I liked the idea very much and started collecting these parts. In the meantime I have a small collection and was able to build a complete train using these parts: For the bogies I used brass tubes to hold the axles. (Instructions in the flickr album.) I also found parts 4548 and 4549 in my kids LEGO collection and added some smaller cars: More images can be found in the album on flickr. Hope you like it!

    [MOC] AGV High Speed Train

    Wow, incredible train! Its design is wonderful - and it has opening doors. Can you show some more details of the coupling?

    NS DE4 / SBB RAm TEE

    Great train! The prototype is instantly recognizable - and one of my favorite trains. (Just yesterday I watched a historical episode of a German TV show about this train...). I do not see how to improve the nose with LEGO, I like it. But you need to add an additional row beneath the carriages - covering the bogies with some red tile (e.g. like Stefaneris did). Your train is 8 wide, so there should be enough space for some brackets.

    This thread is so much fun to read and follow! Thank you for sharing all this! In 2013 "arminpfano" posted his brick-built monorail system "Solorail" on "1000Steine". The text is in German, but I think the pictures and movie is enough to understand what he did. He used the old tracks from the 12v train system, which is very cost effective (2€ / m). Forum entry:
