    British Rail Class 20

    Hello, I have been mostly lurking and occasionally posting here for a while. I though it’s about time to share a MOC or three and this is the first. The prototype is the long serving small/medium BR Class 20 in BR Blue - a common sight for most of the last 60 years on railways across the uk: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Rail_Class_20 In terms of background, I set myself some limitations before I started building trains: 1. 6 wide core build 2. A Lego model based on a real train but not a scale model per-say. 3. No Bricklink etc purchases - parts on hand only. 4. Doors must open! Finally, they had to be sturdy enough to be played with by my children without to many issues: Its first run out was round the office Christmas tree (I’m up to date with the photos as you can see!) pulling a wip MOC BR Mk1 carriage in Hogwarts colours and a “festive” train of sweets (hence twin motors and polarity switch hidden in the cab). The next stage is decals for the side panels and a splitter for the lights so I can have three point lighting through the headboard boards. Comments and alternate versions very welcome, I know there are a couple of other versions of this type out there but there doesn’t seem to be much information on them.
  2. Over the last four hours I have completely redesigned my Lego British Rail MK 1 SO Carriage in LDD 4.3, the redesign was inspired by bricktrix own Cream and Crimson carriages, especially how he uses a reversed Lego headlight brick and a Lego Minifigure Hammer to make the door opening mechanism, and Lego curved slope bricks to give the coach a curved bottom, the redesigned carriage is 53 studs or 16.5 inches long, 8 studs wide (9 studs with the opening mechanism and window ledge). The carriage is based on British Rail Mark 1 Coaches which were introduced in the UK in 1951 to replace older pre British Rail Coaches, the coaches were mostly 57 foot in length, some were 63 foot in length. A comparison of my Lego British Rail MK 1 SO carriage with a Real British Rail MK 1 So carriage. Images showing my Lego British Rail MK 1 Carriage LDD design in other liveries. Update : I have worked out the cost of getting the parts to build the carriage, the cost is £125.00, should take month to two months to save enough money to build two carriages.

    60154 + 4564 = 37?

    First off, I would like to say that, no, I am not terrible at maths! All shall be explained! (Sorry, this may be quite a lot of reading!) The Back Story: First aspect: Some weeks ago, I was having a general look for sets that might be of interest to me. I stumbled upon a very good deal on the Lego City Bus Station (Set no. 60154). I decided in a spur of the moment purchase to pick up 2 sets, with no real plan… That’s what sowed the seed! Second aspect: In the not so distant past, I had purchased a huge Lego haul from eBay containing many train set items and accessories. In amongst this, was an incomplete copy of the Lego Freight Rail Runner (Set no. 4564) – (maybe 80% complete) – at the time I didn’t really know what to do with it. Over time I harvested the 9V motor, wheels, couplings, bogie plates, wagon parts and straight track – basically all the good stuff! Now, I’m a big fan of seeing people doing set combining! I have never seen anyone attempt something like this! (Correct me if I’m wrong!) The Hypothesis: “Is it feasible to make a decent looking locomotive of any kind, combining Sets 60154 and 4564? – Using minimal significant other parts, but in cases where necessary only using parts I currently have, and not resorting to ordering things. The locomotive should ideally use Power Functions with 2 motors, lights are not necessary. Also, the finished model should be sturdy, strong, and able to be played with by children.” Answer, Was It Possible? Yes, and in my opinion, it turned out rather well. What I attempted to build was a massively simplified Class 37, with much artistic licence! Here is the finished product: Thus, the idea for “60154 + 4564 = 37?” was born! What do you think? Any questions, thoughts, or criticism will be much appreciated. Regards, James :)

    [MOC] BR Class 04

    It has been a while, but here is my latest build BR Class 04 by Erwin, on Flickr It is a small shunter locomotive from the british rail. BR Class 04 by Erwin, on Flickr The doors are black because the needed windows would have cost me a fortune in dark green. BR Class 04 and small train by Erwin, on Flickr The reason I used 1X1 tiles instead of 1X2 is pure economical, the were about a third of the price, and available in a bricklink store about 15 minutes away from me. reference image from wikipedia.org Thanks for reading!

    British Rail Class 08

    A British Rail Class 08 Diesel shunter, motorised with power functions BR 7 by Golem Lord, on Flickr BR 8 by Golem Lord, on Flickr BR 3 by Golem Lord, on Flickr BR 1 by Golem Lord, on Flickr Easy removal of roof to access on/off switch. Please comment below!
  6. (apologies for any mistakes made in posting) A Lego diesel-electric shunting engine, based on the BR 08 class. Although I'm not a huge fan of non-steam locomotives, this brick-on-wheels is an exception. I love 'em. I'm happy with how this one turned out, especially since it presented several challenges - the detailing on its side being one of them - and an area in which I sadly failed is its hazard stripes. I like to try and limit myself to official Lego bricks and stickers but I might have to admit defeat and print out a custom sheet. Its rear end looks oddly bare when it ought to be covered in hazards.
