Invitation to the 3rd Bauspielbahn-Treffen in Schkeuditz (Leipzig)) Dear LEGO® train fans, also this year the BAUSPIELBAHN-TREFFEN takes place, the modular L-gauge event. For the third time, train fans from all over Germany and the neighbouring EU countries come together to build a large joint layout. Next to it is place for individual layouts and models. Like in recent years we are provided with the „Altes Straßenbahndepot Schkeuditz“ (old tram depot Schkeuditz) offering a total area of 700sq m round the clock. Beforehand we, the LEN railroaders from Leipzig, create a as varying as possible track layout. The foundation will be provided by us. We want to establish the BAUSPIELBAHN-TREFFEN as a networking event for „L gauge railroaders“, ... ...thus we are looking for LEGO® railroaders ... ... who are in the mood for networking and are looking forward to lively exchange. ... who contribute a landscape to the joint layout. This can be a station, independent track (track through landscape), a factory, a bridge or a tunnel. It's important, that your module is built in a way, that it connects to other modules or other track. ... who want to drive their trains long distances (in august 2020 the maximum driving route was about 400m). ... who built nice, preferably realistic vehicles and want to display or drive them. ... who can bring along buildings, accessories or other appropriate urban buildings. ... who own working models with lights, motors, ... It doesn’t matter, … … whether you’re building with a system (MILS, LEN, …) or not. … whether you’re using LEGO, self-made or third party tracks. … how you’ve build your landscape. Everything can be integrated in the layout, from first work through to professional models. … whether your locomotives are powered by LEGO® 9V, Power Functions, Powered Up, SBrick or Buwizz. We invite all L gauge railroaders to be part of the joint layout: Participants with modules, landscapes, stations, etc. Everyone who wants to participate with one or more modules (stations, free track, bridges, tunnels, railway sidings, …), please sign up with us until April 30th, 2021: Subsequently we’ll send you the registration form and a planning sheet. Please enter your module as precisely as possible into the planning sheet and return the documents until April 30th 2021. They’re essential for your participation in the event and the track layout creation. Those who return the documents are considered as registered and their modules will be integrated in the layout! Please use a separate planning sheet for each module. For large modules please use multiple planning sheets. Do not cheap out on them! The tracks of the joint layout are planned by us including the registered modules after everyone signed up. We’re aiming for a varying vehicle operation. Please keep in mind, that we might place your modules separated from each other in the layout. The participation fee for every participant is 25,- Euro. Every LEGO® train fan from 14 years may participate. Participants with independent layouts / display models Layouts or models, that won’t be part of the joint layout can be brought along, too. Please sign up with us until April 30th, 2021: We will send you the registration form as well. Please enter your model, especially its size and type. Individual models and layouts will be arranged after the creation of the joint layout. Please return the documents until April 30th, 2021! After the creation of the joint layout we will send you the hall plan including the location of your layout. Modules with existing circular layouts won’t be included in the joint layout. They are welcomed as individual layouts. Participants without module / only with rolling stock / guest driver Participants without any landscape modules will be treated as guest driver. If there will be limitations due to Covid-19, guest drivers might not be allowed to participate on all days of the event. Please sign up with us by mail, too: We will subsequently send you the register form. Please enter what you want to bring with you.

Last years workshop topics where for example building techniques, layout digitalization, bridge building, … you can enter further workshop ideas in the registration form. Further information: To show the wide range of possibilities of building with LEGO® bricks, we ask you not to bring modules or rolling stocks from sets but rather self-built models. Participant fee: After last years accounting we noticed that we’ve budgeted too much which is why we have adjusted this years participants fee.

Dear LEGO® railroaders, dear LEGO enthusiasts, dear model railroaders, We are LEGO train fans from Leipzig, Germany. From august 13th to 26th 2020 the BAUSPIELBAHN-TREFFEN (train meeting for LEGO fans) will take place for the second time in the "Old Tram Shed Schkeuditz": You can find a review of the first BSBT in June 2019 here (only in german, but with many pictures) (1000steine.de) here and here (video by bananenbuurman). Like in the previous year, the focus of the event is at the large collaborated train layout we want to build together with your modules and models. We want to build a railway line across the old tram depot in Schkeuditz. For the second time, we will creating a large railway landscape with a double-track high-speed route and some side tracks on over 600 square meters of hall space. If you want to be there this year, you have to register yourself ans your models until may 31th 2020 by send us a mail (see bottom of this article). Some hasty interested guys have already submitted their advance registration to us; we wil send you the planning sheets for the BSBT20 in a while. We absolutely need photos and informations of your models in order to plan the layout. example for "landscape with rails" by Pelle We are looking for: LEGO train and railroad fans who want to be part of a large collaboration train layout with your railway landscape model (free route, industry, level crossing, tunnel, bridge, train station or anything else). For this you should have built a MOC with a railway connection, ideally embedded in a landscape. This can be detailed as best, but it doesn't have to be. What should you ever get: For such a large system, we always need tracks and switches, whether 9V- or Power Functions, third party manufacturers or even self-made. Transformers (we need a lot of power feeds, maybe we uses block operations again...) If you want to bring a train model, please bring at least as many tracj as the model needs (standing model) or more (driving model) Extension cables (sockets are available, but only in the walls, not in the floor or in the middle of the train shed. And finally: We don't want to have more empty tracks as nessessary between all the great models. That's why we will be happy about everyone who wants to bring along an additional part of "landscape with rails" - whether straight route, curves, switches or similiar - using as railroad between stations and other models. In last year, we hat a six train stations and some other stuff, but only a few tracks with landscape to connect them :D It doesn't matter... ... whether you build in a system (MILS, LEN, ... ) - or not. ... whether you use LEGO or third-party or DIY rails. ... how long your landscape is (everything from a half up to many meters can be planned. ... whether your locomotives run with 9V, PowerFunctions / Powered Up or SBrick or Buwizz or something else. ...if yor models need or have a certein curve radius - just let us know. Whenever possible, we strive to take all factors into account. However, the entire system cannot be planned until all participants have registered. Therefore, please note the registration deadline until may 5th 2020! For registration, please send us a mail: The following is currently planned: Thursday, August 13th, 2020: Building day Friday, August 14th, 2020: Driving day without visitors. Testing some play features (shunting, train cards, or something else) Saturday, August 15th 2020: Visitors day I, Exhibition from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., maybe AFOL evening Sunday, Autust 16th 2020: Visitors day II / exhibitions from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. - dismantling Like 2019 this year it's also possible to sleep in your tent or camper on the site of the tram shedule. We can also assist you in choosing a pension or hotel. We're looking forward to a wonderful railway experience.
Dear LEGO® Train Fans, (You can found a german translation here.) We’re planning a new event for lego train fans, who want to be different then other lego train exhibitions and so we're proud to present the “Bauspielbahn 2019” in Schkeuditz, a town next to Leipzig, Germany. Schkeuditz is next to the Leipzig airport and it’s easily accessible via the Autobahn A9 and A14. "We" - these are a handful of lego train fans from leipzig. In last five years we were part of a lot of lego and model train exhibitions all over germany. But now it's time to cook our own soup and we want to make some different like other train shows. the 'Bauspielbahn 2019' will take place from 14th to 16th June and is primarily intended as a event for LEGO railway fans to get to know each other, assemble a huge common layout and to play together. The exhibition will be open for the public on 15th and 16th . Welcome is the entire range from 4.5V to the new Powered up, from the more classical station to the shrill fantasy landscape. As a single model or contribution to the common layout. For the joint layout, the assembly is planned for Thursday (13th), single layouts/mocs can be build up on Thu or Fri. Over the days, we’ll do sightseeing, have barbecue in the evening (depending on the weather) and introduce every tourist trap in Leipzig to you. You can camp on the enclosed grounds or park a caravan there (toilet on the premises available, shower unfortunately not); Hotels in different price categories are available in Schkeuditz, we are happy to help you with addresses. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions, should any occur. Invitation to a Train Enthusiasts Weekend From 14.06. to 16.06.2019 Goal We would like to use the weekend to assemble a common train layout, with LEGO fans from everywhere contributing their modules. Anyone can take part, as long as the segments meet the requirements listed below. A prior registration is necessary to enable us to plan the layout of the railway. Any kind of modules with e.g. train stations, connection tracks or just regular tracks, landscapes etc are welcome. (Maybe you know the modelrailroad - Meetings like FREMO - or others.) pictures are from our lastest exhibitions. but the layout of the get-together-weekend / Bauspielbahn 2019" will look some different, of course. Location We have gained the opportunity to use the Historic Tram Depot Schkeuditz as fitting venue to assemble our modules. It’s not just its history that makes the old depot a fitting location, but also its size. The available hall area is about 1000 m2 and well lit by skylights. Exhibition The event will be open to the public during the weekend. Aside from spectating the traffic on the main installation, visitors will also be able to see single exhibits with models or segments that couldn’t be integrated. Common layout We will be contributing multiple segments to combine with yours for a large installation with diverse train routes. Modules that fit our specifications would be appreciated, but are not necessary. The detailed methods of construction and basic requirements will be published during the next few weeks. However, segments with differing designs can still be utilized. The main routes of the common layout will consist of 9V tracks, operated with the classic speed regulators. Multiple electrically separated routes are planned, to allow for power supply for the individual modules and to enable the simultaneous operation of multiple trains. Non-electrified tracks can, depending on the available amount, be used for connection tracks or individual routes. The same applies to 12V tracks. Differing types of tracks could also be connected via train stations. Every module of the collaborative layout will require at least one track with possible connections to other modules, ideally on multiple sides. Exceptions are welcome, but need to be agreed upon on an individual basis. However, the final layout can only be determined after all participants have registered. Individual modules and installations. Any model related to trains is welcome and can be displayed on additional tables. Registration Participants can register with their name and a short model/modular description until Sunday, 31.03.2019 at firstname.lastname@example.org. We reserve the right of admission. To allow for the best possible planning we require specific information from you. After initial registration we will send you a form for the specifics of your modules. Please fill it with all the information about your contributions and send it back to us. I hope we will see us in June. Michael / MTM
Hi guys and girls. Here I will show you a diorama built in autumn 2014: a scrapyard. User Taz35 asked me in the thread of my "level crossing - 33 degrees", if I could show my other modules. So I will do this. But this place isn't built in my modular train standard, call LEN, because it was designed months before the standard grow up. In model train communities there is the opinion, that railroads shouldn't drive exaktly parallel to the table edge. So I decide to build a diagonally train track and so the whole place developed also diagonally. In the pick-a-brick wall in lego store leipzig I found a lot of wedge plates. So the idea to build this was born: The scrapyard is designed so, that all side are front sides. There's no back. So observers can take a look at all side into the yard. At the first side, you can see a sidewalk and the huge metal fence (it's in old dark gray). Also you can see a little family with a dog. (and this dog made a doggy do :). At the second side you can see a wall and a lot of plants. Also you can see the sign of the german forum 1000steine.de. There I showed this scrapyard in octobre last year and it gaves me the third place of best mocs in this month. At the third side you can see old tires and containers with a lot of scrap, mostly bionicle and other things inmetallic colors . Also you can see at the left side the biggest tree at this diorama and the huge crane. It's the first version of it and nearly closed to the crane in set 6541, but this one is a little bigger. And at the last side you can see the little bureau and the entrance for cars and buyers. There are a lot of details you can found, like the scrap collectors and the scathing watchdog. But I think, it's better, if I show you some pictures without any comments: A very important part is the track-ending sign (called "Schutzhaltesignal sh_2" in german) at the gate. It's really a original lego part, but it's very very rarely. It's included in set 4306 produced in 1980. Normally it's a part of human girls rings and certainly the most uninteressting part in this set. Today you can't buy it at bricklink. I don't know, why it is so rarely. I hope you're enjoyed about this weird moc. MTM
