  1. This model was heavily inspired by Seunghoon Yoo's Pioneer Zephyr model (Recreated by Ryan Smith in LDD in 2012, as seen here ) I redid the wheels where they were small fiction bearing ones and added a new windscreen using parts not available in 2012. The double-jointed shared bogies were originally taken from 10233, (Horizon Express) to replace those friction bearing wheels I mentioned earlier. The real-world Chicago, Burlington & Quincy (CB&Q) Pioneer Zephyr was the first successful American stream-liner, and made it's inaugural run from Denver to Chicago in May 1934. It arrived 1 hour and 55 minutes ahead of schedule with a total run time of 13 hours and 5 minutes... Note, the run time of a regular steam train pulled across the same distance in about 25 hours at much slower speed than the 77 MPH (124 Km/H) average of the Zephyr on this non-stop run! It was even featured in a fictionalized Hollywood block-buster movie, "The Silver Streak". (The original drama, not the 1970's comedy of the same name) This loco even started it's own Zephyr-mania, with everything from Ford cars to sports-teams having "Zephyr" slapped on the name. (Zephyr, by the way, is derived from the name of he Western Wind in Greek mythology) This model features three joined cars, with the power car up front, baggage / RPO (that's short for Railway Post Office) in the middle, and observation lounge at the rear. The rear car has a wraparound back window. Please NOTE: None of the cars roof sections come off, and their is no interior, to save on costs when this model is built in real life later this year, maybe around Christmas. The LDD file for the complete train model is here. Comments, Questions & Complaints are always welcome!
  2. This is my latest project: a 4-6-4 Hudson Dreyfuss inspired stream-liner and it's corresponding train. It was heavily inspired by pictures from Anthony Sava's photo-stream from 2008 and 2007. No instructions were used to build this model. The railway name on the sides of the tender will read Legoredo Northwestern Railroad. The sides of the engine shall have the number 7444 written on it in official printed 1 x 1 tiles. The engine number comes from the screenshot number that was the first WIP shot that I took and coincidentally is near Mr. Sava's 7244 number on his Hudson - type. Here is a link to his model and the only picture I worked from: https://www.flickr.c...s-55973205@N08/ The rear of the engine has a ladder, two hand rails and a red marker light. Here is a close up of the nose of the engine. Fictional engine background: These fifteen 4-6-4 (4 leading, 6 driving, 4 trailing) streamlined steam locomotives were designed for fast passenger work on the Legoredo Northwestern Railroad. The three best riding locomotives of the batch were shrouded in a streamlined, aerodynamic casing, and were assigned to “the Rocket”. This meant they were usually flying along at top speed from New York City to Seattle, with one train going one way and another going the opposite direction. The third engine was held in reserve in case of breakdowns, ready to go at a moments notice. Fictional train background: Here we see the Dreyfuss Hudson pulling a passenger train called "The Rocket", heading from New York City to Seattle via the most northern transcontinental line in the USA. The train is run by the Legoredo Northwestern Railroad and gets it's name from the very fast speed of the train, and for the originator of all modern steam engines, George Stephenson's "Rocket" of 1830. This new train started being run exactly one hundred years after that famous engine began the era of the Iron Horse. The train consists of one baggage car, three passenger coaches, and one observation car. (these coaches are not in the LDD file) NOTES & LDD FILE: Here is the original NYC loco I was inspired by. (picture from Wikipedia) I have found over 500+ parts for this train, so this Art Deco loco and ti's consist will be (hopefully) finished by the end of this year. I also have the LDD file for the engine by itself here ( Hudson locomotive only ) comments, Questions and Complaints are always welcome!

    MOC: Grand Prix Auto Services

    Hello everyone! My latest build is finally complete after taking up most of my desk space for the last few months. It's called Grand Prix Auto Services. A Gas station/Garage which is of a streamlined style from around the 1930's/1940's USA. I struggled to build a car from that time with what bricks I have so went for a more late 50's look with the car and scooter. I've seen some great examples by fellow EB members L@GO and ER0L but felt with so many varied styles out there and not too many versions in Lego there was room for one more! Mostly I wanted to use some of the curved window pieces I had purchased some time ago and this was the perfect opportunity. Most of the model is built sideways with only a little vertical building in places. It's therefore a little less stable in certain sections. Anyway, enough waffle and on with the pics; Any feedback,comments or questions welcomed!

    MOC: The Ocean Restaurant

    Hi everyone, My latest moc is called The Ocean restaurant and is inspired by Miami's south beach area. I felt some of my ealiest attempts on the style didn't do it justice. I thought a 1 storey building wouldn't be as time-consuming as some of my more recent buildings much larger in size which would allow me to concentrate more on the details and refinement. The exterior was done first and I wasn't originally going to do an interior but was persuaded to and I'm pleased I did as it turned out to be pretty fun designing. Anyway on with the pics - There's only 5 this time so i'll put them all in here These are all the pictures from this MOC, if you'd prefer to view them at flickr go here: https://www.flickr.c...s/52656812@N04/ Comments welcome!

    MOC: Streamline moderne shop

    Hi everyone! Here is a quick build I made after returning from the US in the summer where I got a little inspiration. It gave me a chance to use some techniques which I wanted to use a long time ago. I wanted to use lots of classic streamline moderne elements and styles. Its a shop selling clothes for ladies. I mainly wanted to concentrate on the fascia of the building so didn't bother making it completely modular like previous builds. There is a few more pics on here http://www.flickr.co...s/52656812@N04/ Comments welcome!
