    MOC:Teapot Junction

    Hello fellow EB members Here I have made a Tearoom which has been converted from a former signal box and railway carriage still moored at the station platform. A flimsy excuse to make a railway carriage which has been on my to do list for quite some time. Tearooms and very popular and common in the UK and you can get more than just tea! Anyway a few pics and the link to flickr; The usual link to flickr: here Enjoy!

    [EBFS] Garden Railway

    I'm not fully decided whether this should be here or in Town, but I created it with trains in mind so I've put it here. "Create a garden for your theme"... well, that's clearly going to be trains, so I can either put a garden in a train or a train in a garden. With only a 16x16 area, I thought a railway wagon might be a a bit small (but @Pdaitabird proved me wrong, so I'm glad I didn't try it!). However, I thought a LEGO minifig-sized garden railway might work... and it does! The young and the old railway entusiasts watch as an unidentified BR tank engine hauls a pair of Carmine-and-cream MK1s around the loop, endlessly... The garden features every LEGO plant, flower and shrub I own! It also features a miniature station building, a bench for Grandad to rest on, and a small workshed - complete with toolbox and cup of tea/coffee/hot beverage. Behind the shed is the control gear, that via a few bevel gears turns the green disc the train is fixed to, causing it to rotate. In an ideal world the turning disc would be grey and the the central "island" green, but I don't have the parts in the right colour so they're the other way around! Finally, you can see it in action below! If the GIF doesn't work, try clicking here: https://gph.is/g/aev79Nk And as ever, more photos are hosted at Bricksafe: https://bricksafe.com/pages/Collet22/ebfs-garden-railway- Thanks for looking!
  3. Hello does anyone have any advice on designing armoured trains that can operate at high speeds or are built to launch ICBMs? I’m trying to think of the next MOC I should do regarding armoured rail vehicles
  4. Greenstar

    Armoured train moc

    Here is my armoured locomotive, Eternal Night. She is built to haul the White Lion Railways leaders private train, Eternity. She is capable of operating in space as well. both turrets rotate 360 degrees and fire. The plow is pretty strong and can take out some strong magnetics toys connected together with no damage . She is able to take curves quite well as well.

    MOC Armoured locomotive

    This moc is of an armoured locomotive I built at one point its based off of the train from Kabaneri of the iron fortress in design and it’s turrets do rotate and fire

    Road tiles with train tracks

    What if Lego created a line of road baseplates with train tracks embedded in them? What type of sections would everyone like to see? the ones I can think of now are: single track: straight segments curve segments Junctions crossings slopes. Double track: straight segments curve segments junction segments crossover segments crossings slopes. general: sections where track is are either red or green in color for public transport only sections where track is are same as rest of street for mixed traffic Sections where there is interlaced track should be included such as special points and other areas for such track there should also be areas where the tracks transition to normal LEGO rails as well
  7. Does anyone ever combine their LEGO bricks with scale electric trains? I’ve found them to be compatible for track structures for 1/87th scale systems as well as structures such as elevated rail stations and bridges I’ve also used Legos as the base for a moc up of a section of track in Columbus, Ohio where a derailment occurred back In 2012 for something I was doing

    Cable propelled rail systems?

    Would it be possible to design a cable propelled rail system such as a funicular railway or a system such as the BART Oakland Airport Connector using LEGOs? Has anyone had success in doing so? Also included are the cable cars of San Francisco as long as they are moved by a cable. could the roller coaster tracks work for a more modern cable system?

    Combine Razor Train

    Has anyone ever tried building the Combine Razor Train from Half-Life 2 in LEGO? If so, how was it done?
  10. While I was at my dad's house yesterday, I took some pictures of his just-finished grain elevator model with a rake of four set 4536's (Blue Hopper Car) and my Bluebonnet Santa Fe F7 diesel A & B units. (Full disclosure: He originally was inspired by these instructions I suggested to him for the grain elevator not long after creating this topic.) He just took the basic concept / look and RAN with it, making it much stronger and more modular than before. This modular format makes it easier to store in a custom wooden box like the ones behind the Grain Elevator. Inside these boxes is where he stores his modular buildings / train tunnel. The American flag addition to the building's design was my @Roadmonkeytj's idea, and was relayed by me to my dad for building. It is seen on both sides of the building. My dad revised majorly the shed where the hopper cars dump their grain load, making it much stronger in the process. This was entirely of my dad's idea: this four-point joint makes transportation easier, leaving the elevator building section on a 32 x 32, and most of the grain storage blocks on a 16 x 32 size base-plate. Pretty cool, huh? The model was inspired to-be-built by the Alton, Illinois, riverfront grain elevator, as seen above. Unfortunately, the letters were not a possibility due to not having enough silos / base-plate space to spell it all out. As usual, comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!
  11. This model was inspired from this set-733 like MOC by @AFOL7777. I turned it into a railroad-served industrial track ballast loading facility to have the crane load dark bluish gray 1 x 1 round bricks into the crane's bucket. Then you can drop them into train hopper's when they arrive with the pull of a sliding plate. You may have noticed I had to extend the height of the model 1 brick, to allow for Diesel 10 to fit underneath, as he is the primary engine to work the ballast facility. (His claw made him too tall, but it's okay now.) The tan tile parts under the crane are the pull pins to make the coal fall into the hopper cars. Inside of the crane with "controls" for the bucket motors and the crane itself, which travels along some narrow-gauge tracks and can swing from side to side. In reality, the "hand of god" method is used to make the crane move, with a rope extending to the roof of the crane cabin which I can wind and unwind to load and unload the ballast into the train cars. The office of the owner of the ballast operations. The reason for the odd footprint is the factory MOC I made earlier this year resulted in a base-plate piece (dimensions 16 x 48 studs) that I was looking to use somewhere.... enter into the picture this model, and now I've nearly solved that little issue. This 6 wide BR "Warship"class with hydraulic claw (AKA Diesel 10) model has been heavily modified by me from a old Class 37 file by LazarusBricks to have new removable roof sections for the cabs with seats for figures and cab controls. As you can see, I chose to leave off the face to keep the engine more in line with the rest of my locomotives. Diesel 10 works the ballast facility most of the time, so I included him here. I'm going to have my Diesel 10 model pull 6 of these coal cars plus a brake van inspired by the 1980's 12v era red/ yellow sets to my gravel facility. The 12v era model and Diesel 10 are already built, and the plank wagons are on order as of 1/11/2020. NOTE: All credit for the six dark grey wagon models seen in the picture above goes to @Pdaitabird, who designed them. See here on Flickr for the awesome tutorial by him for the construction of the BR plank wagon. BUILDERS NOTES: The ballast facility is now done, but the trucks to be filled with the crushed rocks are not (yet). More pictures to come soon!
  12. Good evening everyone, Today I would like to present another "international" model. This is the "NSB Type 49 - Dovregubben" of the Norwegian State Railway. It was built between 1935 and 1941 and was mainly used on the "Dovre-Railway", that´s the reason why the locomotive is also called "Dovregubben". The model consists of approx. 1020 individual parts, is 58 studs long and approx. 10 studs wide. It can be driven by two M-engines, one above the other in the boiler. The IR receiver is located in the cab and the battery box in the Vanderbilt tender. This model was developed from a former customer request and was a special challenge, since there are unfortunately only very few meaningful photographs or pictures in the Internet to find. Usually only black and white. Therefore we mainly used photos of a H0 model. Praise and criticism are very welcome. Kind regards Martin Further pictures in the flickr-folder or on our homepage

    [MOC] 9V-Era Layout

    Some of you may recall a few months back that I posted an LDD MOC of a locomotive using only parts from the 9V-era (linked here). Since then I have built the locomotive in real bricks, along with a layout using the same premise: to examine what I could build using only bricks that I already have, all of which are from before around 2005. If you compare it with the render in the original post, you'll notice that the engine has been modified to look more American than European, and the coaches have been elongated. The base is a 4' x 4' piece of plywood; if anyone is interested, Krylon Gloss Emerald Green is a very close match to Lego green. IMG_0662 by the chestertonian, on Flickr IMG_0663 by the chestertonian, on Flickr IMG_0664 by the chestertonian, on Flickr IMG_0670 by the chestertonian, on Flickr The layout is set in the early 20th century as the west is beginning to settle down. The town of Brick Butte fell on hard times after the local Army post was disbanded in 1896. Fifteen years later, there is little left but a few buildings (some built from materials salvaged from the abandoned fort) and a few dozen residents. IMG_0665 by the chestertonian, on Flickr I'll introduce you to some of the prominent citizens: Count DuCoup moved to America after his nation's defeat in the Franco-Prussian War, and eventually settled in Brick Butte. IMG_0666 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Hank Solo, as usual, is engaging in some shady transactions... IMG_0667 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Sheriff Quentin G. Jensen and his deputy, Juan Quenobi, patrol the dusty streets.

  15. An addition to the cannon. I'll be buying the parts to build this soon. You can see it at my BrickLink Stud.io page (link in signature), and if you download or view in 3D you will see the internal details through the open back for play/display - Winter Village style. Scaled to fit my short-form EN-style carriages (24-stud plate; also available at my Stud.io page, with other content including more train stuff) which are hauled by a modified PF'd Constitution engine. Suggestions for improvements welcome.
  16. Location: King's Harbour Type: Royal Commercial The WaywardMart™ of King's Harbour had opened along the railway to sell goods for the WTC. WaywardMart by North White, on Flickr "5 Dbs for a barrel of horse glue?!? I could buy a house for that much!" Said an outraged Corrington soldier. "All prices are set by corporate. However, if you'd like to apply for our customer loyalty program, you can earn points towards future purchases, in our stores across the brick seas." Said the cashier boredly "I don't want a loyalty program, I just don't want to be robbed when buying supplies!" he said. "If you want, you can fill out a survey that you can mail in for a chance to win a 200 Db spending spree at any of our locations. It's on the back of the receipt." The cashier replied WaywardMart by North White, on Flickr "I'd take my business elsewhere, but you're the only supplier left! It's like everyone else who sold goods was driven out of business in unsavory or suspicious circumstances...." "Thank you for stopping at WaywardMart™." The cashier said tiredly, before returning to his book. WaywardMart by North White, on Flickr Agnes, meanwhile, was drunk in the storeroom, again displeased at the lack of progress on the railway. It was almost as if Corrington was ignoring the project. WaywardMart by North White, on Flickr Fortunately, the railway was able to ship things from the docks to the warehouses and stores. Meaning it had some use.... FIN Thanks for viewing my general store! This originally was going to be licensed as an Artisan, but after I had built it, I realized it was more commercial. Fortunately, it incorporated the CWW, so I've decided to have this be another entry to the wagonway. I'm happy with the build. I could have done more with the roof I feel, but as I have a lack of cheese slopes, I've been doing flat roofs lately. I hope this isn't to much like my last build, but I've tried to use different techniques with each of my builds. C&C appreciated!
  17. Location: Cocovia Type: Minichallenge build The Super Precarious Bridge had been built to cross a gorge on Cocovia Super precarious bridge by North White, on Flickr The Plans had called for them to go at an easier crossing. Super precarious bridge by North White, on Flickr But The WTC is also awesome at building bridges for some reason FIN Just another entry to @Brickwolf's minichallnege. I was originally going to use these for the supports, but it made everything look too pink, and I'm not @Bodi . I didn't really have a story envisioned for this one, which is what most of you seem to come here for, so sorry. Maybe I'll rewrite it. This entry should be considered a 16x48, but if the powers that be otherwise, I suppose it could be reduced. C&C appreciated!
  18. Location: Mesabi Landing/ Cocovia Type: Minichallenge build Mordo headed up to Agnes's office with the monthly newspaper The Office by North White, on Flickr "Um, about the hole in the-" Agnes cut him off "Candle fell on the TNT. What's the latest?" The Office by North White, on Flickr "So, first off... The Grand Cocovia Railway has stalled out. It's over budget and over time. They're opening the project to other nations in a last ditch effort to complete it." Mordo summerized "What!?! Other nations?" Agnes yelled "We built them a dock, right?" "The dock doesn't really help to further the railroad. Anyways, the Sea Rats have-" Agnes rose from her chair. The Office by North White, on Flickr "No, we have to deal with this. Charter me a ship to Cocovia. You're in charge while I'm gone." "But!" "No Buts!" ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A WEEK LATER The Tavern by the tracks was where most of the railworkers spent their days. Traffic was busy in King's harbor, and the railroad was often delayed by passing carts. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr Inside, workers happily chatted, ignoring their duty to the railroad. A Union had formed, and while contracts were negotiated, work would not be completed. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr The door opened, and Agnes Mesabi walked in, flanked by Pete Zanzibar, and two yellow jacket soldiers. Agnes fired her gun. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr "Now which one of you is in charge of the union?" she yelled angrily Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr "That'd be me, miss, and you better watch yourself, because I know a few guys who could talk some sense into you. But I'm not the kind of man who starts fights." Said the Union leader Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr Agnes said nothing and walked over to the bar. "A bottle of your finest," she asked politely. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr The Union leader began to walk back to the table. Agnes began to down the bottle. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr Finishing it, she flipped it, turned and smacked the man on the back of the head. He fell with a groan. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr "Gentlemen?" she asked. "Show this man how the WTC operates...." Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr The two yellow jackets began to punch and kick the man, while he cried in agony. "The WTC will be helping to assure the project is finished." Said Agnes coldly. "And you can forget your union. We don't do unions." Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr She turned to the bartender. "Another of your finest." She said with a smile. FIN Thanks for viewing my first actual entry into the CWW challenge. My last one wasn't up to snuff, so I'd like to offer this one, and possibly some more. I hope you don't feel we have @Brickwolf. All shares created by me are to be given to the crown. C&C appreciated!
  19. This model was inspired by set 10199 / 10249, Winter Village toy Shop. I originally built this as an open-back building in 2013, and scrapped it in 2015 for a larger, full-bodied station. I never did forget about this model, and rediscovered it while looking for my Hogsmeade station to go with my Hogwarts Express model I had designed. The model will be finished in real bricks very soon, and as such I have tweaked it again by adding stairs to the top floor where the station master's office is. The track side also features a space for eight printed 1 x 1 letter tiles to be placed to designate the station name along with plenty of passenger seating along the five-track-long platform. That's three tracks longer than the new Winter Village train station, and mine also features a rear wall and second story! Here is the street side of the station. This side includes an overhang that protects passengers entering the structure from the rain along with a wheelchair / luggage ramp access to the platform. The model features two modular lift-off levels and two split-away platform sections, along with some inside details. The lower floor features a fireplace, four chairs, and a desk for workers to hand out tickets. The top level features the station master's office, which is accessible via the staircase from the lower level. Here is the complete LDD file. I already have 95% of this model collected IRL, and I just need to order the last 500 parts early next month. Comments, Questions, and Complaints are always welcome! UPDATED 8/23/17: added new pictures and staircase to the model. LDD file also updated!
  20. Hello LEGO fans! I want to share with my new MOC. I tried to make my LEGO railway more realistic. And that's what I did! As you can see, LEGO train tracks looks more interesting with some trees and grass. If you already have LEGO railway, try to add some objects to make it realistic. I like the result! Now my LEGO trains look great on these layouts. Have a nice day!
  21. These models are heavily inspired by Whoward69's fleet of train cars, as seen on his Flickr feed and his instructions linked below. First up is a set off a crane wagon. I modified the original model model's instructions to include a longer base for the crane, and using newer parts to make it a bit more durable. The rear of the crane car should feature six of this print where the yellow 1 x 2 tiles are. The crane car can move side to side or up and down with two sets of ropes to either raise / lower the hook or operate the boom. Please NOTE: I don't have the exact measurements for the two strings as they wasn't listed in said instructions. However, I think two of this string here should be long enough. I also added a flatcar carrying train track for the crane to off-load. This Box Van was a Banana Van when I built from these instructions. I already have two boxcars in this form, and thought four more would be a good idea. This flat car was just a random addition to the train, with no real specific prototype. The brake van was mostly made from these instructions. I embellished the design with a couple of my own touches to keep it in line with the above-mentioned boxcars. I was inspired by the Lone Ranger "Constitution Train Chase" (set number 79111) and it's jail car to add tail lights to this car. This print should go where the black 1 x 2 tiles are under the rear windows. The LDD file for the six boxcars, one depressed center flatcar and the singular guards van is available for download here... ...while the crane car and flat wagon are available for download in this link. Comments, Questions, & Complaints are always welcome! (NOTE: These models should be built IRL by January 2018!)

    Lego Railway Signaling

    Hey guys! After a few weeks of break I'm back and working on my test-setup for train signaling. As some of you know, I've built a small test track on my desk and wired up a lot of sensors and LEDs to program and develop a signaling system for trains. I'm finally at a point where I can drive trains over a layout that has block signaling fully working and completely automated too. Here's a video: When the train passes over the block sensor, a flag is set and it's only when the flag is removed (i.e. the train has fully passed over the signal and an additional time of 1 second has passed), that the signal switches to red and vice versa. The code only makes the block-section check it's sensors and flags get set and removed automatically meaning I have minimal code maintenance to do if I want to change anything. I have a lot more signals planned for the future including switch track signals, crossings and station signals. If you're interested, I can provide a PDF with all the signals I came up with. Let me know what you think. All feedback is appreciated.
  23. These buildings were inspired color scheme - wise by set 7222 and the steam locos of the 12v era, which later became Brick Railways Systems main colors. This model was originally built by my father around 2005 / 2006 for an old-style MOC steam engine we built together based off set 7722. It was three tracks long and one track wide at first, but recently I reworked it to be five tracks long and two tracks wide, and with a completely new removable roof. This model can hold any of my steam engines (okay, maybe not the western one, as it is pretty tall), although it is probably too short in length for my diesel units. The rear of the shed. The building is 5 tracks long, which is 80 studs in length. The maximum side clearance is good enough for a 10 stud wide model while the trains can be no more than 11 bricks tall. The original model's roof is permanently attached, while the remake features one large removable section. My father built his original old grey water tower way back in the 1990's back when 9V was king. When he built my first LEGO train (it was a set 7722 inspired steamer, which gave me the idea for my red & black color scheme) in 2006, he built me the water tower to go with it. It wasn't until 2014 when I built myself a long-awaited coaling tower using inspiration from the website called LGauge (link: http://lgauge.com/ ) Anyway, these models are built to be sat the correct height for most official engines, such as the My Own Train series, along with all my custom engines such as my 4-8-2 "Mountain", 2-8-2 "Mikado", 2-6-0 "Mogul", 4-4-0 "American", and so on. The coaling tower features a movable chute to load the (imaginary) coal into the engine's coal bunker or separate tender. The Forgotten Daylight 4460 is a oil burner, so it does not use this particular tower. The girders on the rear of the coal tower are supposed to represent real-world idea of housing a bucket-conveyor system to load the bin inside the tower. Here, in LEGO, it is just for looks. The water tower features a movable spout to fill up the engine's tanks / tender. Here are the LDD files for the buildings so far: LDD file for the double track shed: shed with doors ldd file LDD file for both refueling towers: refueling towers file NOTE: This thread is a W-I-P: the shed parts have been ordered as of 2/3/16, but the switch tower is a ways off into the future. I should have the shed built by this time next week or the week after! EDIT 2/22/16: The shed is finished, while the switch tower is pushed back some.. it won't be built for a while. EDITED 1/14/17: As of January 2017 the shed now has opening engine doors which are colored to match the red stripe on the walls. They will be added to the real life model as soon as funds allow, but there is a sneak peek in the latest post! (The LDD file has been updated as well with the doors.)

    [MOC] ICE 3

    Hi everyone! Fortunately I have the time to share here my newest creation! It's a train and it's the model of an ICE 3. It is 196 stud (157 cm) long and contains more than 3300 pieces, two IR receivers, two battery boxes and two train motors. Hope you like it! Oh, and another important information is, that it will be visible on Zusammengebaut 2016 in November and on Bricks am Meer in April 2017 in Germany!At first please watch these two videos! The first one shows a crash. The place, where I made the video, wasn't horizontal, and on the slope the train got a too high speed The records of the second one were made after I repaired the train. Well, I can say it is quite stable construction, despite the building techniques of the front. During the crash, only the boogies fell down! I'm really happy, that it is ready! It took me almost a year to build and become satisfied with the result. You may know, if someone build a train, the front is the most important thing. If it's not good, it's unnecessary to build the other sections. Everything started with an LDD model from a front-idea. I built something in the program, but I didn't like it. Later it came always into my mind and didn't allow me to be calm. So I started to develope the construction. Some month later it looked nice enough to order some parts and make it in real life. It contained so many interesting and strange techniques, that it was a real challenge to put the bricks together in the program, and with real bricks it was hard, too. And the real 3D model was ugly! But I said, that it has to be possible to find out something, which makes the model better. So I made some changes, and some more, and some more, and finally I liked it, and I thoght that I found the maximum! I stored the train (only the front section) and some other parts on the table in the middle of our house. And one night, I couldn't sleep. I woke up and went out to the table to do something. And I don't know why, but I put an element into the middle of the front. And I said 'wow'! It was perfect (for me of course, for you, I still don't know, but I will read the comments :) )! Some gaps disappeared, some sections got new positions. That element made so big changes on the overall look, that it was incredible! I felt high, but next day I was very sleepy. :D More pictures are available here: http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/433076 Thanks for watching!
  25. This building is inspired by 2011 Harry Potter set 10217 (Diagon Alley), specifically the Borgin and Burkes shop that is technically not on Diagon Alley in the HP universe. (it is instead of a neighboring street where evil wizards / witches dwell) Here is the front of the building. The number "1887" goes on the four studs above the middle second floor windows using printed number tiles. That year was the year the building was built, by the way. The new rear half of the building features a back door and a couple windows. This model will serve as my fictional railroad's headquarters on my town, and as such has a miniature model railroad inside. (just for the heck of it) The building also features a tower, two story fireplace, and staircase to the upper floor. The lack of other interior furnishings is intentional, as I haven't been able to think of a single piece of early to mid 1900's furniture for the offices of the railway president and the accompanying secretary. The building has hinges to allow for it to open up to 90 degrees, but no further due to the wall ornaments being in the way. As usual, the building is locked together by a friction-less Technic pin to allow for easy opening and shutting. The original building from set 10217 has 14 dark green windows I need for a updated train (seen here: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=138020 ), so this building will be built sooner rather than later, probably next month, if possible. (I really don't know, as I'm juggling about five possible next-builds at the moment. All will be built eventually, but whatever's next I don't know for sure!) Comments, Questions, and Complaints are always welcome, plus the LDD file for the entire model is available here: http://www.moc-pages.com/user_images/80135/1471631763m.lxf Thanks for viewing! UPDATE 8/19/16: The buildings was an odd number of studs long, which was causing problems. I have since fixed that, and as such the LDD file and pictures have been updated.
