Reza posted a topic in LEGO Train TechSo far, I have found 5 variations of instructions for set 7865, based on the year of release and languages. They are (1) @1980 LEGO System A/S EU II 108581 D/F/NL (2) @1980 LEGO Group A/S EU II 113081 D/F/NL (3) @1981 LEGO Group A/S EU I 113080 DK/N/S/SF (4) @1981 LEGO Group A/S EU II 113081 D/F/NL (5) @1981 LEGO Group A/S EU III 113079 UK/I/F Please kindly check your own copy so that we can complete this list. They will be added to Bricklink. If you want to see photos and learn more about these variations, continue to read: Let's look at differences between the three D/F/NL variations (beside the text given above): * The difference (1) and (2): a) On the later version, two red arrows are drawn on one image of motor showing how the middle wheels can be assembled on the motor. b) On the back side, there is a table showing how many of which track and sleepers are needed to build four different layouts A, B, C and D. * The difference (2) and (4): None! So I guess the 1980's version was printed in 1980 and then, TLG gave it a new year of release, matching the other two variations of 1981 (UK/I/F and DK/N/S/SF). I know 12v trains were sold in Denmark, Sweden,... since 1980 so I assume there should be a 1980 DK/N/S/SF version. I guess there is no 1980 UK/I/F version because 12v trains were not sold in UK, Italy or France in 1980. Future projects: instructions 7864 (and perhaps 7861). More photos:
Hi all, after seeing the beautiful V60 created by @Asper, I realized that I've never tried to represent it (I started with the V80 and V100). Being the iconic 7760 historically identified a s a V60, I did not pay too much attention to that specific group of locomotives. But it's a nice shunter and has a pretty complex shape, so I wondered if it could be possible to replicate it in 12v-style. The result is pretty similar to the 7760 and to the red little locomotive shown near the car-loader in 7777 book. The front hood starts in 4 wide, then becomes 5-wide to return again to 4-wide. The rear part of the cabin is 5-wide and features low doors (standard train doors were too big). 2x1x2 blue windows are going all around the cabin (no absurdly expensive 3x1x2 windows needed!) I did not mean to make it too complicated, but at least representing the enlarging/restricting body was mandatory to make it different from the 7760. Paint scheme and the headlights were made to elaborate a bit the front and rear parts. Some handrails made with bars could have been nice, but were not existing as parts at the time. I made also the red version with yellow stripes - just to see how it was like. The more I look at it the more I think also the V100 needs some restyling, now! That's all for the moment! Ciao! Davide
