    [MOC] The Station of Memories

    Hi all, This is my first post so I'll quickly introduce myself : Alex B. Sign, dad x2, judo practiser and AFOL. Thank you for accepting me in your creative community ! I'd like to share with you my MOC I've uploaded on Lego Idea website : The Station of Memories. The Station of Memories is a metaphor of past memories, when the family was gathering for special family events. It is a place out of time, another space-time in which everyone can connect and remember part of his/her life, out of the current everyday life. This is a simple and small family train station located in a pretty countryside little town. Please see samples below (very low quality). You'll find more details and more pics (better quality) about the concept on the Lego Ideas website here I hope you'll enjoy this concept ! If you like it you can support on Lego Ideas Website. Alex B. Sign
  2. Named for nearby Fort Legoredo, the town of Legoredo City was first settled in 1867 by the people following the Union Pacific railroad through the West on towards the Central Pacific to create the First Transcontinental Railroad. Usually these towns die off once the construction teams move on, but this town didn't because of one crucial fact: Valuable veins of silver were discovered by the Construction crews in a attempt to tunnel through the side of Raindance Ridge. This new wealth happened to be right up the tracks (about a mile or two) from the City. The town continues to have a booming industry in the 21st century, with tourists flocking to the Wild West town and more recently, the reopening of the silver mines because of advances in mining techniques. The railroad still stops at Legoredo City, with a Native American reservation and the preserved Army Fort nearby. US 1870's LEGOREDO MODULAR TRAIN DEPOT This old railroad station was inspired by set 7594 (Woody's Roundup!) which I have named the Fort Legoredo passenger depot after the famous set number 6761. (Fort Legoredo) This railroad station was built in 1874 after the original station structure (built 1867) burned to the ground in late 1873. It was confusingly named Fort Legoredo at that time by the railroad in an attempt to persuade potential settlers that this land was protected by the army, when in fact the Federal government was planning on closing down the actual Fort Legoredo. (this plan was eventually gone through with, as the Fort ceased operations when it burned to the ground in 1885 and was not rebuilt) The station has since stood for 140+ years with only slight modifications, such as adding computer control systems to the upper floor in 1980 to control the switches and monitor train traffic to the still-active silver mines. The station also serves as the oldest building in the city and is featured heavily in tourism advertisements for the city and it's historical reproduction of the original Fort Legoredo. (the US Army base, that is) The station is modular, as the roof and second floor come off and the two side platforms come apart by means of Technic pins. This lower floor features two waiting rooms with a ticket office in-between them. This office features stairs to the upper floor. The upper floor features a vintage safe that is used to hold silver dust / nuggets that is still payable for a train ticket. The metal is weighed on the scale (seen next to the safe) to ensure it is the correct type. (Read: not fake). The newspaper contains the daily precious metals prices, so that is is fairly measured and properly payed for. Eventually a special train comes though the station and the dust / nuggets are exchanged for proper paper currency, with the expensive metal being shipped back east to Denver to be made into coins and bars. The anachronistic modern computer system was added in 1980 to control the switches and monitor train traffic to the still-active silver mines. 1870's LEGOREDO CITY This bank was partially inspired by set 10255 (Assembly Square) with BANK stickers from 70800 (Getaway Glider). The rear of the bank also has a modified safe from set 10217. (Diagon Alley) along with two bank teller's windows and a desk. This barber shop was inspired by set 6765. (Gold City Junction). The barber shop features two chairs taken from set 10246, (Detective's Office) along with a sink and cash register. This general store is supposed to be modeled after the one in set 6765 (Gold City Junction), but with updated parts and expanded collection of items for sale. The sign on top of the building is supposed to say GENERAL STORE in printed 1 x 1 tiles. Inside, we have a cash register and a not-yet-finished interior. This saloon was inspired by the bank in set 79109. (Colby City Showdown) It features a typical saloon swing-open door, a cash register, and several spots to sit down and order a drink. Being on a corner, much of the building is left to the imagination as I wanted to avoid lift away floors to keep with the vintage 1990's Western feel. This sheriff's office was taken almost wholly from set 79109. (Colby city Showdown) The rooftop cannon has been removed, and a sticker-based sign from set 7954 (Woody's Roundup) has been placed up there instead. The floor of the building has also been redone, and most of the odd colored part removed. The rear of the building features the sheriff's office and his armory, plus the jail cell with it's exploding front wall. The jail cell with the wall blasted out of it's normal spot. This blacksmith's store was heavily inspired by 2011 Ninjago set 2508. (Blacksmith Shop) I revised the colors scheme, removed the rotating rear wall, and added a holder for a future sign that will read "Blacksmith" via a custom sticker. The roof still folds open like the original set. US 1870's MILITARY TRAIN & 4-2-4 STEAM LOCO Let's start with the newest train: the 4-2-4 and the US Army train. This is a more realistic version of set 10254 (Winter Village holiday train) for all the train fans who don't like the engine. I added working pistons, and a more cohesive color scheme plus two more sets of wheels on the engine. This is a tank engine, and as such does not have a tender. The rotating Gatling gun you see here was taken from set 79111. (Constitution Train Chase) This horse car was originally a cattle car from set 60052, (2014 Cargo Train) but I've re-purposed it for my Army officer horses. These cannons are from set 79106 (Calvary Builder Set) and were placed on a generic flatcar. for transport by rail. This coach was inspired by set 10015 (Passenger Wagon), and features no interior. The jail car you see was originally from set 79111. (Constitution Train Chase) while gaining the styling of set 10015. (Passenger Wagon) This car has one play feature that is sure to blow you away: the back wall can be removed to get at the jail cell via the "dynamite" on the outside of the back wall. When pushed back towards the other end of the car, the rear wall pops out and the bad guys can escape! Here is the whole military train all put together. US 1870's PASSENGER TRAIN & 4-6-0 STEAM LOCO Next up, the modified passenger train which I have shown before on these forums, but has received a bit of a face-lift. This engine was originally modeled after set 7597 (Western Train Chase) with some design inspiration from the Disney train 4-4-0 (set 71044). The engine also features a piston set copied from my version of set 79111 (Constitution Train Chase) to keep it inline with the rest of my steam locomotives. The rear of the loco features a ladder to the tender-top, where the hatch to the water tank is found and also where the neatly stacked wood pile is located . These passenger cars were mostly inspired by set 10014 (Passenger wagon) but repainted red instead of green and with fancy part 30613 "Brick, Arch 3 x 6 x 5 Ornamented" on the end of the cars. I might be mistaken, but Ben Shuber may have been the one to inspire these coaches with his own red versions of set 10014. The end of my passenger train features this little four wheel caboose. It was designed after set 10015 (Caboose) with some features taken from set 7597 (Western Train Chase) The whole passenger train was inspired by sets 7597, 10014, 10015 and 71044. US 1870's FREIGHT TRAIN & 4-4-0 STEAM LOCO Since I turned the red 4-4-0 into a 4-6-0, the slot has been opened up for another "American"-type. Thus, I created Yellow 4-4-0 number 2, to go along with red 4-6-0 number 3 and green 4-2-4 number 1. As the red one before it, this engine was originally modeled after set 7597 (Western Train Chase) with some design inspiration from TF Twitch's "Humble Sapphire" 4-4-0. The engine also features a boiler copied from set 79111 (Constitution Train Chase) to keep it inline with the rest of my steam locomotives. This log car was also designed by my brother, and is quite ingenious for using set 60059 (Logging Truck) but on a train base. The logs are floating place, as they would be resting on the bottom of the car in real life. It was quite a pain to position them into place as seen here. The coal-filled gondola was inspired by a sub-model from set 10183, Hobby train. This vintage water tanker is a modified set 2126 (Train Cars) design with four wheels on the two bogies instead of two wheels stuck to the frame. I've had this model built since 2008, and finally used it for something other than a shelf-warmer. It was originally a gift from my father to go with my black-and-red class 7715 style train and is now at home on my Wild West layout. This caboose was inspired by set 10014 (Caboose) except this versions cupola (that's the roof top thing) is centered and is a bit bigger. Here is the whole train together. US 1870's WESTERN MILITARY - FORT LEGOREDO This is an updated and enlarged form of sets 6769 / 6762, (Fort Legoredo) with new parts and some modifications to the original set. These new parts include two cannons which oddly are missing in the original sets. I have heavily modified this model by adding Technic pins to hold the sections together, and by filling in the gaps in the wooden walls. The jail cell has also been enlarged and opened up for play-ability, plus a train platform had bee placed at the secondary gate for loading and unloading soldiers and equipment. The yellow flag is supposed to have this print: http://www.bricklink...35pb107#T=C&C=3 while the tan plates above the main gate are to have printed 1 x 1 tiles spelling out "Fort Legoredo". (which are sadly not in LDD) The back of the fort features the commander's office and jail cell below. I removed the originals set's trap door and enlarged the cell. The main gate has been greatly enlarged to allow for wagons to enter the fort. The secondary gate allows for rapid deployment of artillery and troops off of trains and into the fort. The commander's office is above the jail. I plan on adding a custom Confederate officer into the cell. Not much to say about this part... US 1870's WILD WEST MINI-FIGURES Commanded by General Buford Armstrong, the garrison at Fort Legoredo is ready for anything... or so they think! Just some local folks, including retired sheriff Woody, Jessie the cowgirl, the current sheriff (Rodger Walker, top row in black) two deputies (lower row), two ladies, and two citizens. Just some local folks, including a old miner 49er, a couple ladies, the honorable Mayor Peter Johnston (with white beard, lower row) and three citizens. The Blackheart gang is led by the genius gunslinger the "Man in Black" whose name is not known by anyone still living. Also he plays harmonica during raids, giving clues and help to gang members in code as he does not speak much. (lower, center) This gang features other criminals such as (top row from left to right:) "Sister" Sarah: she infiltrates the train at a previous station sometimes disguised as a Catholic nun. She then makes mental notes of where the valuables and safe are kept, and how many guards their are Tuco "the rat": This man puts ties on the tracks to stop the train, then blows the track behind it. He also can blow the safe door easily, no matter how thick the metal. He also knows most locks better than most locksmiths (just in case), and keeps a running table in his head of how much dynamite he has left to use. "Hot-Lead" Luke: He takes care of any guards (permanently) and relives the passengers of their watches, gold and and cash, with help from Sarah. "Smiley" Feared sociopath, and is said to kill the train men of each train they rob, though the bodies have never been found. he also makes sure no-one looks at the robbers as they leave or tries to be a hero. These hardened railroad men are as follows: Top: Tom Hardy; senior locomotive engineer and perpetually two weeks from retiring (or so he says) Joseph Barbara; station master of the Fort Legoredo depot, always punctual and runs through life like a well oiled machine Middle: E.S. Hawkins; division manager and a bit of a eccentric. Stops by the Legoredo station every now and then and demands a train be chartered to a fictional / impossible place (such as the ghost town of Grave Stone). He says he's serious, but in actuality he just likes to keep people guessing on his next sentence! Lower: Sidney Flattery, junior fireman of engine Number 3 and is very proud of keeping the girl running like clockwork. Alex; locomotive engineer of engine 3 and sometimes old No.1 when Tom Hardy is busy or unavailable. These Native Americans are of the tribe displaced by the US Army and the silver miners in the Raindance Ridge area back in the 1860s. They aren't to happy about that, to say the least, and they are determined to get the land back, even if they have to team up with the evil Blackheart Gang to do so! US 1870's MODULAR EADS TRAIN BRIDGE Here is my final design of the St. Louis bridge, commonly known as the Eads bridge because of it's designer, James B. Eads. It uses Indiana Jones roller-coaster ramps for the arches, which looks pretty cool. The bridge is nine tracks total in length and 19 bricks high from base to track. (this means about fourteen brick of clearance between arch top and floor, so some ships could pass through!) First, a little background info from Wikipedia (which is also where this picture came from): "The Eads Bridge is a combined road and railway bridge over the Mississippi River at St. Louis, connecting St. Louis and East St. Louis, Illinois. The bridge is named for its designer and builder, James B. Eads. When completed in 1874, the Eads Bridge was the longest arch bridge in the world, with an overall length of 6,442 feet (1,964 m). The ribbed steel arch spans were considered daring, as was the use of steel as a primary structural material: it was the first such use of true steel in a major bridge project. The Eads Bridge, which became an iconic image of the city of St. Louis, from the time of its erection until 1965 when the Gateway Arch was constructed, is still in use. The bridge crosses the St. Louis riverfront between Laclede's Landing, to the north, and the grounds of the Gateway Arch, to the south. Today the road deck has been restored, allowing vehicular and pedestrian traffic to cross the river. The St. Louis MetroLink light rail line has used the rail deck since 1993." This is a rough representation, as it is missing a lot, (I.E. no car deck, missing tunnel under downtown, and lack of the East St Louis ramp approach.) Here is the modular component, of which three of these big sections together via eight Technic pins (four per section) to make the whole bridge. The modular component of the bridge's design also makes it a LOT easier to carry as the whole bridge with the three sections weighs about 10 pounds total. US 1870's WESTERN STAGECOACH, TOWN CARTS, SNAKE-OIL SALESMAN VEHICLE, US ARMY CANNON CART + AMMUNITION WAGON "Come one, Come all! Gather 'round for a cure to end the all-too-common cold!" It may say "bait shop" on the side, but it really is a patent "medicine" store, where Anton Dewey Cheatum makes his own brand of lethal cures using rattlesnake venom, whiskey and his special addictive ingredient... one or two tastes, and you'll come back for more until you drop (dead). Usually this happens after he has fled town in his red wagon with the citizens hard-earned cash. This Express Stagecoach model was mostly taken from set 79108 (Stagecoach Escape) from the 2013 Lone Ranger theme. I removed some of the random colors to give it a more unified look, and replaced red with yellow as the main color for this stage while the rear baggage ejection feature still works as originally designed. Here we see inside the stage, with the roof removed and doors opened. The brown box on the roof is the safe hauling the silver miner's pay, disguised as a steamer trunk to fool bandits. These wagons are for my townsfolk and their businesses. The yellow crates hold various liquor bottles for the Saloon, and the other wagon is headed for the mine with TNT and a barrel full of Whiskey. This 1860's US Army covered ammunition wagon with cannon is inspired by set 6716 (covered wagon) from 1996's Western theme. The cannon can come detached from the wagon, and become ready for action very quickly. Revered among the west are the lawmen, the get-it-done type of folk, like Wyatt Earp, for example. This is the ride of not a single one of those type of men. The wagon you see here is the official Mayor's carriage of the town of Fort Legoredo. This wagon was used for the second though fifth mayors, with the first (the one who died before this wagon was delivered) being the only truly honest and good one in the bunch. He was pushed off of Boulder Cliff Canyon in 1872 by cattle ranchers for giving the Native Americans a fair share of the land they were owed in a treaty that was signed by all involved.... unfortunately, this mattered not to the ranchers. The next eight years and four mayors were full of lust, greed, bullets, and backstabbing. It wasn't until 1880 that a real era of economic boom and social change began in the Fort Legoredo area. (The snake oil delivery wagon, mayor's wagon and the two town wagons were designed by Baskerville bricks (seen at this Bricklink store here.) with some added flourishes by me.) WILD WESTERN STERN-WHEEL STEAMBOAT The captain of the Proud Mary is Thaddeus Sweeney, better known as "Old Man Sweet-tooth", for his habit of chewing saltwater taffy when the going gets tough and and giving candy out to the little children whenever he lands at small towns and native american villages such as Lone Tree, Nebraska, or Fort Legoredo, Colorado. He usually plies his brand-new-for-1872 stern-wheel steamboat up and down the Rapid River, with the Missouri River in Iowa at one end, and the the mighty cliff face of Showdown Canyon Springs at the other end in the middle of Colorado. Thaddeus is the only one he trusts to handle his ship, as he says the Rapid River is too treacherous for many newer pilots, as the wrecks that litter the shoreline prove. However, even Captain Sweeney admits from time to time that age is catching up to him, and he has been looking for a suitable first mate for the Proud Mary for some time. The name of the ship is the Proud Mary, after the Creedence Clearwater Revival song of the same name, as I figured it would be appropriate. The rear paddle moves around 360 degrees and simultaneously slides the gray piston parts in and out on both sides. WILD WESTERN RAILROAD TRUSS BRIDGE This through-truss bridge design was originally downloaded by me (I don't remember the name of the original designer who created the bridge) from the LEGO Factory / Design By ME page in 2010-ish and was never built in real life due to questions about it's strength. I came across it again while looking at my MOCpage account's older files and made it into the version seen above using newer parts and a longer frame quite a while ago. (and as to those original questions about it's strength: It's built like a safe, as I can pick it up with a single finger by the top..... just don't drop it, because the reddish brown parts won't survive the landing!) More recently, I revised the deck where the track goes to be able to take the RC track up and be able to put down 9V down more easily. (We run 9V trains at shows in Gateway LUG.) In short, the track is now more easily removable to become 9V, 12V, or even a road bridge. The bridge fits any of my trains, and should fit all official LEGO trains except for double stack containers such as sets 10219 (Maersk Train) and 10170 (TTX Intermodal Double-Stack Car). WILD WEST RAILROAD WATER TOWER This model was inspired by fellow builder @Pdaitabird and his water tower, as seen here on his Flickr page. I have re-purposed the model for my Wild Western town / railroad. The tower top rotates a full 360 degrees with the water pipe, allowing the engineer to pull up, get his loco full of (imaginary) water, shove the pipe away, and move on. US 1860's WESTERN SILVER MINE AT SKULL ROCK This Wild West model was originally LEGO set 79110 (Silver Mine Shootout) from the 2013 Lone Ranger theme. I added a more reinforced right wall and a real base-plate to support the model, as I know from experience it can be pretty flimsy if handed wrong. I also added the collapsing water tower from set 79111 (Constitution Train Chase) to the front corner as another action play feature. The model has also been heightened by five bricks to allow for regular train cars to pass through, but unfortunately it still isn't wide enough for custom locomotives with side-rods to fit through. (yet!) The natural rock formation (the skull) on top of the mine gives it it's name, and features a carved out section for two cannons to protect the mine, either from Native Americans wanting their sacred mountain back, or desperadoes looking to cash in on the (supposedly cursed) silver. You can see many more details on the mine can be seen in this topic. NOTES ON THE POST EDIT: 2/25/19: Added truss bridge and water tower LDD screenshots. As usual, comments, Questions, and complaints are always welcome!

    [MOC] Train Station

    Here is my latest MOC. A train station built for Bricks in the Six Convention, which was held in Toronto last weekend. Approximately 60 hours was spent on this project. Roof alone contains over 5000 pieces. My estimate for the entire MOC is over 15000 pieces. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    MOC: Lego Train Station 60050 XXL!

    Hi all. This is my first post, and also my first MOC! The Train station 60050 XXL! As shown in the pictures of the MOC made in LDD, the train station is based on the 2014 train station 60050. My goal was to create a large train station with two separate tracks and three platforms. One platform and station has to be big enough to facilitate my Horizon Express XL (10233, 2 HE sets). The other side of the station must be suited for smaller trains (e.g. the red passenger train 7938). I do actually own these passenger trains. The total MOC consists of three sets of train station 60050 complemented with extra bricks (for the larger platforms and the middle platform and the passenger bridge). The passenger bridge is an adapted version of the bridge used in station 7937. The LDD designs show the MOC. I already finished building the two stations. The Lego pieces for the middle platform are ordered and I must order the Lego pieces for the bridge. I will upload pictures of the actual build if it is finished. What do you think?

    Winter Village: Train depot

    Hello everyone, Here is my entry into the Winter Village competition. Because of the new Winter Village train, we need a station so there is somewhere for the train to stop! I used this train station in my own Winter Village display this year, so I took extra care to make sure the scale of the building matched the other buildings from Lego's official Winter Village sets. This was not as easy as it sounds. There is a tendency for me (and many others, I think) to make our MOCs large and grande. It is difficult to be restrained in the size of our builds. IMG_0511-001 by James Altland, on Flickr For some reason, the system will not allow more photos to be posted. So I will post this one for now, and perhaps more later. Thank you for looking! Okay, I'm new to posting photos on this site. So I'm trying to add a few more photos, even though they may be too late for consideration in the Winter Village competition.

    Winter Village: Train Station

    Every rail line needs a train station and this one lets passengers from Eastern Ontario, where my Winter Village is located, travel to the North Pole to visit Santa’s Workshop. There are a few old Canadian Pacific and Grand Trunk Railway Stations in Ontario that have a large round architectural element to them and this was the inspiration for my MOC. A cast iron wood stove warms the inside of the train station that is decorated for Christmas. I have included some photos of my Winter Steam Engine train as well. Hope you enjoy and have a very Happy Holiday Season! image by Karen Metz, on Flickr image by Karen Metz, on Flickr image b y Kareimage by 2 by Karen Metz, on FlickrKaren Metz, on Flickrn Metz, on Flickr image by Karen Metz, on Flickr image by Karen Metz, on Flickr image by Karen Metz, on Flickr There is no indoor plumbing so an outhouse was required.

    [MOC] Winter Village Station

    This is my year's Winter Village addition, a train station. Something that has been missing from the Winter Village, so I chose to build one. The station consists of a clock tower and a cover platform, with an extension platform that can be removed if so desired via technic pin connections. The interior is furnished with a counter, a register, newspapers to buy, a mailbox on the right side and a Christmas tree, bench and an old style phone on the left. There are stairs for entry and a clock to finish it off.

    Winter Village Train Station

    Winter Village Station_4 Introduction Lego have released two trains and a lot of nice buildings for the winter village, but it still misses a nice place to stop. This is a station with a nice clock tower with two bells so that the citizens can keep track on the time during the Christmas shopping. Inside the station building there is a waiting room, full ticket booth and a small workshop in the tower for maintaining the clock and the bells. On the right side of the station you have a nice fountain and the train schedule. As you can see in the pictures this would be a very nice supplement for the old holiday train (10173) and this years new winter village set (10254). Basic Info Approx Dimensions: Length 62 cm x Width 12.8 cm x Height 37,4 cm Number of pieces (with minifigs, without track): 1200 Clock print: 17038 Input and support will be appreciated. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/154973 Winter Village Station_with Train Winter Village Station_Detail

    Train Station

    I dreamed up a train station that I have been developing over the last couple months. I wanted to share it here, I hope you like it. Its gotten nearly 300 supporters so far on Lego Ideas. I hope if you like it, you could throw some support at it there. I show it with a couple passenger cars based on the Emerald Night train set, for scale. The platform roof is at just the right height. Its designed to stand alone, with attachment slopes along the platform to attach along regular track sections. There are lots of details from seating to a paper vending machine (I borrowed the idea from the Detective's Office set, though changed the colour scheme). Inside, on the ground floor is a lounge/pub area, and a ticket office and waiting area. Upstairs, on the 1st floor, is a cafe, with a cafeteria style setup to order, select food and pay, then go sit at tables. Its done in yellow and white, like some cafes I know of. There is a ladder that leads up 2 more levels into the tower, at the top of which is a 4 sided clock. The colours I used are dark orange with tan, windows in black, and some dark bluish gray accents around the cornices, and the roof of the tower. The platform roof is dark green. I am only attaching a few of the photos here, but there are more on the Ideas project page, if you are interested in more detail. Cheers https://ideas.lego.com/projects/107984 This last photo shows how its modular sections come apart in 5 sections.

    Winter Village: Train Station

    My entry to the Expand the Winter Village Contest VI is a WV Train Station. I bought the sand green roof and pllates a couple years ago with a small rural train station in mind, and I finally found enough time and motivation to actually build it. The station lies in a rural area, and is not highly frequented, so the one platform is sufficient for all the train stopping at the station. Close to the station is a semaphore signalling post. The station is built from the rock found in a near by quarry. Inside the station there's a table used as a ticket booth. Behind the table is a small wood burning furnace to keep the place warm in the winters. On the other side there's a bench for the passenger, and a small Christmas tree put up by the two employees of the station. More pictures can be found on my Flickr.
  11. The idea for this MOC came, when my daughter built the set 40138 all by herself (she’s four). And then she asked those two questions – where’s the Santa and where is the train station to accompany the train. And so… The assumtions were – a bulding with adjacent platform, some typical features for a train station, add some fair lamps, winter, to put it all together on a single 32x32 baseplate… Let’s start from the very beginning – my train station does not try to compete with full scale sized models of train stations, but I tried to add some of the functionality into the design. We have spacious, glazed waiting room with ticket office. The awaiting passengers can use the water dispenser or watch TV. All is illuminated by a fancy chandelier, which is first of the play features in the MOC – just like in the original Lego winter series. The light blocks are operated via the pushed mini dome on the top of the roof. The roof itself is raised like in the modular buildings. As I feel a strange aversion towards doors, the station is closed by has roller shutters. Which of coursed are now raised. The side wall is openable. The ornaments on the front and back windows are also removable. What I am especially content are the pillars in the lobby. The came nicely profiled, and yet they do not take much space, which due to the baseplate limitations, scarce indeed. Although due to the technique incorporated, the pillars cost me almost all of my reddish brown jumper pieces supply. On the side of the main building there is a small technical outhouse – with a small stove (not well photographed I’m afraid) and with another play feature – the working semaphore. On the backyard we also have the garbage bin, switchboard and… ups – let us forget about the photo of this gentleman… But a train station is no station without a train… Here it comes! … nope, that is only the mini-model. The building assumptions for the train were even more complex as for the building: it had to have the resemblance with the original Lego gift set, was to fit in the confined space – therefore it was modelled as a narrow gauge train (four studs wide tracks), had to have a gifts loaded car… and was supposed to move on its own. As for the exterior resemblance, some changes had to be added – mainly in the drive system – due to the narrow space of the engine, which had to house the motor. Also details of the cabin with hearth and coal storage were added. The initial trials of the engine were with the micro motor – they gave promising results, but after adding the piston, all collapsed as the engine had not enough power to operate such contraption. The small PF motor did not fit into the housing, so finally the choice fell on the old technic 9V motor. On account of the measurements, it had to be placed vertically, and the battery hold was hidden in the cargo car (you can see the cable running through the cabin into the doors in the coal storage). Unfortunately the battery is most probably weak and the train moves very limply. After switching into more efficient power supply, the whole train spins. When I find more time, I will also make appropriate movie clip. Also I will mention, that this is my first steam engine, not counting the one build in late 80ies from the set 7722. There are also some Easter eggs hidden in the scene… Try to find them out! Entire gallery, with all the features described that had to be sadly omitted directly, can be seen here: Flickr.

    [MOC] Modular Train Station

    I've always wanted to add a train to my Lego modular street, and it seemed like the right place to start was a train station! It's been years since I've had my own Lego town, but the modular series has really got me excited and building all over again. Would you like to see this model sold as a genuine Lego set? Please support my design on Lego Ideas. :) Train Station Front Above by dfalkner, on Flickr Train Station Rear by dfalkner, on Flickr Train Station Open Rear by dfalkner, on Flickr Train Station Parts by dfalkner, on Flickr Train Station Interior Ticket Booth by dfalkner, on Flickr Thanks for your help!
  13. Hello All, I've been working on a town layout in my lair for a long time, and today i achieved a milestone in the construcion of the railway station. it is 3x Baseplates wide here is the design i was working on in LDD and as of tonight, after 5 Bricklink orders i have achieved building the main structure: plans are to develop a bus stop, some small stores such as newspaper stand etc, and add higher level detail... will pave the entire area, and I am looking into learning the artform of making my own decals/stickers. will keep you posted.

    My collection of city MOCs

    Hi everyone. Looking at all these amazing MOCs here at Eurobricks i decided to share my own. This is a collection of city MOCs that i designed over the past few years. All of these models are made in Lego Digital Designer, and are presented with pictures rendered using POV-Ray. I didn't make a lot of pictures as i'm sharing LDD files in which the models can be viewed entirely. Most of the buildings have roofs built in separate sections that can be removed (using "connected selection" tool) to see the interiors. Also note that because of the high brick count, that some of this models have, slower computers might have problems with opening those files. That's it for the introduction.. I hope to insipre people with my work just like i get inspired by others.

    Train station

    I built this station almost a year ago for LUGs exhibition in March 2014, but I never got around to take pictures of it. It was exhibited at three national exhibitions (KockeFest 13, KockeFest 12, Kranj - SVM), and in between it was kept safe in a box. It survived my recent move at the end of the year, so before unpacking, sorting bricks and starting new projects, I finally took some photos. Back view of the building and the platforms. Top view reveals the size. Can anyone guess? It's a layout of 3x4 baseplates (32x32). The entrance to the building is partly covered with awning. The passenger train is a shorter version of this one. I took away the middle car, as it was too long. Also, I don't have enough tracks to extend the (four) platforms to the appropriate length for the train. I also don't have enough minifigs, so the station is not as busy as it could be. The platforms are numbered, so missing the platform is not a problem. There's also a timetable at the front of the platforms. You can catch the 11.23 train to Billund. More pictures, including some of those from the 2014 exhibitions, can be found in my Flickr stream.
  16. Hi everyone! For many months, my train station was almost finished - just now I took the time to populate the platforms and make all those signs... here's the result: » Flickr album with many more photos My Lego town is called "Port Birch", and this is its South Station. I figured that only 5 tracks aren't enough for the main station of a town with trams, metro, and suburban trains (S-Bahn). Architecturally inspired by several real stations and other buildings... Back side: Interior, from top: Ground floor: In case you're interested but can't read it, this is the train schedule. Note that it's 14:58 now. 09:22 - IC 4558 - Hintertupfingen - platform 5 - indefinite delay (but it just arrived) 14:55 - IC 7740 - Stuttgart via Friedrichshafen, Meckenbeuren, Biberach, Ulm - platform 3 - delayed 15 min 14:59 - RE 2 - Lego City via North station, Belville, Legoland 15:12 - TGV 233 - Paris Est via Stuttgart, Strasbourg, Lorraine, Ch.-Ardenne - platform 2 15:17 - RE 2 - Chimatown via Springfield, Oletown - platform 3 15:29 - RE 2 - same as 14:59 15:40 - E 10194 - Istanbul via Wien, Budapest, Beograd, Sofia - platform 4 - reservation only 15:41 - RE 1 - Emmeton via East Harbor, Bricking - platform changed to 5 15:47 - RE 2 - like 15:17 15:47 - RE 1 - North station - delay 5 min So you see, the REs (Regional Express) are local to this small country, while the others are more or less actual routes. (Well, except for Hintertupfingen, German name for a hypothetical insignificant village). Second floor, offices: Left: Station master with an applicant for a new job; center: secretary; right: security, sign control, announcements. Toilets: Waiting area: Third floor, café: Flowers and books: Back outside, we can see a railway official posing with a fez next to the Orient Express: More photographers and tourists: A group of travelers in elegant (and old-fashioned) clothes going down to their Orient Express - well, looking at the top, maybe they will be down sooner than they'd like: On the next platform: Hoop diddy diddy, hoop diddy do... :) » Flickr album with many more photos Hope you like it. :)

    Train Station Concept

    Just thought I'd share this here: I figure this'll be the area that people go to buy tickets. I know it needs a ticket window to do so, so I'm thinking that the window behind the test figure there will be the place for it. Any thoughts?
  18. Hello to all First I apologise if this is in the wrong thread, but I figured a train station was a town building and belonged more in the town thread than the train one. I'd like to introduce you all to my train station! When the Horizon Express was first announced, being French, I could not miss the opportunity to purchase the lego version of one of our country's icons. With 2 HEs, I decided to build a French scene. This was helped by the release by TLG of the Parisian Restaurant a year later. However a train and a restaurant wasn't enough, I therefore decided to build a train station. As I lacked the resources to build a large train station which can be found in major cities across the country, I decided to build a traditional station which can be found in the french countryside. My inspiration was the JOUEF HO train station my grandfather has on his model train layout. As this is a work in progress, not everything is finished, but for now the station features: 3 SNOT doors (2 in the front, one giving onto the platform), a movable clock, an entrance to an underground passage way to link different platforms, ramps to access the platform from the street level, and a modular like design to easily get access to the interior (which is unfinished at the moment). The platform can also be extended using brick connectors to give it more length. As I wait for an upcoming PaB order to arrive, this is the current status of the train station, I hope you enjoy! more pictures at: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=546672 MOCpages link if brickshelf isn't working: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/394207
  19. Here is a preview of my MOC for Brickworld 2013, the Villa Park Metra Station. Villa Park is a small suburb outside of Chicago, Illinois and Metra is the commuter rail. Comments, questions and critiques are always welcome. Reference pictures of the real building More pictures can be found here:

    My MOC: Modular Train Station

    Just wanted to share my MOC Train station. As always it seems to be a never ending work in progress but here are some pics of what I've done so far :-) http://www.flickr.com/photos/edsmith0075/sets/72157632609123761
  21. I've long wanted an official Winter Village station for my train. This year I stopped waiting and built one myself. This cozy little station is the perfect gateway to your Winter Village experience. I like building that are easy to play in, so the roof opens for better access and the ramp slides to whichever position you want to use it in. It looks like some people are waiting for the next horse and buggy to arrive, to ferry them into town. Grab the hook off the wall and open up the ladder to access the clock tower for maintainence. See a closeup of the decorated office here. It can become really cold waiting for that next train to arrive. So spend some time relaxing in the witing room. Want to know some things to do while you're at the Winter Village? Pick up a pamphlet from the rack and see the nearby attractions. More pictures available on my Flickr Album
  22. This is my first posting of my MOC. Tried to build a modular bank (modded from bank transfer set) and a train station(modded from 7997). Did some research on this forum and internet and madey bricks purchases to get started. As this is my first attempt to MOC a modular building, do feel free to give me your comments. Some simple photos taken using my camera phone. More photos link: http://www.flickr.com/x/t/0092009/photos/toys_hub/8437126617/ http://www.flickr.com/x/t/0097009/photos/toys_hub/8437128485/
