    American 4-4-0

    Hello! Here is my first try on a locomotive and also the first one I completed. Some details like the bell are still missing but overall its pretty much complete. As for the moment I built this i had only a XL-Motor available to power it, so I implemented it into the drivers compartment. The headlamp at the front does light up with the Power-functions-LED. Was a bit tricky to hide the big transparent LED thingy in the headlamp design. Overall I am happy how it turned out, and I hope you will enjoy it aswell! When I got some time I will take some more pictures! Suggestions and critisism are welcome! Lego 4-4-0 Western Locomotive by Ragni Norgrimson, auf Flickr
  2. Update - she's built and pics added! These 4-4-0's were so popular in the US from the mid-1800's to the mid-1900's that they are referred to as a 4-4-0 American. They were a mainline work horse until the early 1900's when larger engines replaced them but they continued service on shortlines and spurs until the 1950's. My particular engine was inspired by #185 of the St.Louis-San Francisco Railway, nicknamed Frisco. It has 1050 bricks between the engine and tender and took me over 50 hours to make in LDD. It's 8 bricks wide and I tried hard to capture many of the important details without making it too super detailed. I focused mainly on scale and proportions. I did add good detail to the boiler in the cab and gave the tender good detail behind the cab to include the coal shoot and working coal doors. It's powered by a PF train motor under the engine with the battery and receiver housed in the tender. The very top of the coal heap serves as the button for the battery and you can look straight down and see the battery light glowing green. The cable for the motor runs under the floor of the engine and tender, but just above the coupler, keeping it out of sight. The .lxf file is quite detailed with over a dozen different groups making it easy to take the engine and tender apart allowing you to make modifications, change colors or just to examine my building technique. I have not run it through Bricklink yet, so there could be some parts in certain colors that are not available, like all the metallic gold in the cab for example. Here's a link to more history about the Frisco Railway... https://www.american-rails.com/the-frisco.html Here's a link to the .lxf file... https://bricksafe.com/pages/sed6/4-4-0-american-locomotive And here's some pics (click on each for bigger)...Hope you like!
  3. Similar to my thread of a year ago, wanted to share a couple more freight cars I've been building on the side: Conrail N6A I've shown this Conrail transfer caboose in a couple of my threads, but never formally, so here it is. The prototype is one of several classes of transfer caboose Conrail inherited from the Penn Central. The model was designed almost two years ago, and I got around to putting it together last year. The "skirt" that covers the tops of the wheels is typically the toughest thing to model on American freight cars: if you run on R40 track, the bogies usually need to pivot enough such that the wheels will scrape... this isn't a problem on the N6A because it's quite short; no fancy engineering is required to compensate! The geometry of the skirt and such are still similar to that of my earlier flatcar. And with stickers Brickshelf Gallery PRR G43 Like the caboose, this gondola might have shown up a few times, but never formally. The G43 is a 52' gondola built during the last decade of the PRR. Most of them went to PC and then Conrail. This model was designed and built last year. The dimensions are very similar to the aforementioned flatcar, and it's basically built the same way: the structural component (the sides) is studs-out, and the floor and trucks are studs-up. Once again, much of the work done to make the skirts work on the flatcar are applicable here. Thus, the hardest thing here was figuring out what to do about the shallow trapezoidal part in the middle - eventually I went with wing plates. Finally, this probably should have been dark red or reddish brown, but all three colors seemed to somewhat off, so I ended up going with the most common. I also looked at weathered designs, but its a little bit too difficult when there are a lot of large, exposed parts like the wings. Brickshelf Gallery Alaska Railroad 15800 Series This is a side-dump car, typically used for MoW work. Technically Wikipedia thinks its a type of gondola. As you can see, the specialized feature of this type of car is that it empties sideways: unfortunately the model does not have this feature! This car has actually never been posted: I only recently completed the design and model: Doing the textures on the sides was a little big challenging, especially trying to "blend" it with the ends. On the prototype there are a ton of funny angles that are hard to model in LEGO. Construction is otherwise typical: studs-out for the body, studs-up for the chassis. Those droid-body things are really good for the big pneumatic pistons. Brickshelf gallery Finally, this is a repost, but here is the gondola and caboose running with my EMD Model 40:

    [MOC] Crow

    Hello, this is a carrion or American crow (two very similar looking species).
  6. Steve Gaels, adventurer during his free time and working in a Parisian museum, found a very old map on a market in London. When he found out that that map could help him discover the lost treasure of an ancient and extinct tribe, he took the first plane to North America. Hapapou is a Native American who crossed Steve's path after he lost a poker game - and almost his life - just before Steve saved him from outlaws. In exchange, Hapapou promised to help Steve to find the famous treasure. See more pictures in the album here : Steve Gaels and Hapapou's Adventures! Thanks for any suggestions or comments!

    [MOCs] Various American Freight Cars

    Hi EB! I haven't posted in a long time, but I have actually been building stuff. I promise. I had been looking to put together an american freight train for some time now: I originally thought I could get away with building a long articulated well car (which would make up the entire length of a practically sized lego train), but the well car has proven to have more restrictions and less reliability than I would have liked, and as such it was time to build some regular freight cars. Tank Car All of these freight cars were actually designed in maybe 2014, but at the time I did not actually intend to build them, preferring the aforementioned well car instead. This tank car was completed first because I was able to acquire almost all of the parts through my local LUG. The only expensive parts were the 8x8 dishes on the ends, which are apparently quite rare. As much as I hate to be imprecise, the car is a little bit of a freelance: I did work off a drawing to get the proportions, but I apparently could not find a photo or model of the thing in the drawing, so the greeble around the the dome and platform is a bit of a guess. The ladders are also a bit disproportioned, but that is more of a convenience. This car probably has the most interesting construction of the three here: I wanted to use the various 8-wide circle parts, but I did not want them to make up the load-bearing structure (so you can't pull the car apart). Therefore the load-bearing structure is actually a Technic frame that kind of moves up and down such that the top and bottom set of circle parts can connect at alternating bulkheads. Flat Car Like the tank car this is a little bit of a freelance, but I really wanted a flatcar such that I could put random stuff on it, and modern flatcars at our scale are far too long to run on R40. I found two models for reference, and I believe my drawing is for the bottom one, but the car itself really takes more from the top one. This one was actually the toughest one to build. As I designed it in 2014, there wasn't nearly enough structural integrity and the wheels would easily rub on various other parts in curves. It took me quite a few iterations to increase the structural integrity to an acceptable level without compromising the overall appearance of the car (mainly not making it too tall). As you can see the details of the final design look nothing like the details on my original LDD build. Build-wise, the key to making it structurally sound was to make the studs-out sides the load-bearing element, and the difficulty was doing that while still giving the trucks enough clearance to pivot fully in an R40 curve. If you press on the car in a turn there is still a but of scrubbing, but for now I consider that acceptable. Hopper Car Unlike the other two, this car is actually based solely on a specific model! It is the latest one to be completed, and I think it is actually my favorite of the lot. It took me a while to get around to it one because I thought it would need a lot of parts, but it was mainly just the 1x2 rails (something like 100 of them) and they were relatively cheap. Construction is mainly studs up for the chassis and studs forward/backward for the sides. Each side is a studs forward and a studs backward section held together with rails on the top and bottom with some additional SNOT needed to go around the ends. It's probably the sturdiest of the three cars, but also the heaviest. Well that's it for now. There is a full gallery with a few more pics if it ever gets moderated. I do have a new locomotive in the works too, and it will be interesting.
  9. Hey fans! Today I'm gonna to share with your my latest project. This is middle or even small scale American Truck. It's all RC. Also I/m planning to make a white cab for it from suitable parts. HD photos: http://bricksafe.com.../american-truck It has the next functions: XL- motor for driving M - motor for steering M - motor for gear shifting. It has 4 speed Sariel's sequental gearbox M - motor for the pump A Pair of front and a pair of rare lights. Openable doors and hood Pneumatic PTO for the trailer. PLease enjoy the photos, click to enlarge. Video coming soon... Openable hood PTO for pneumatic, Fake Manometer (Air pressure meter), fake lights to light connecting trailer in the dark Now here are some photos with trailer. Loaded and not. As you can see, all wheels in the trailer are simply but suspended. Very expensive loading, though)) - Brothers? - Definitely not
  10. All my "painted" LEGO photos go in this thread. Here is a link to the flickr page with bigger versions of the pic (If anyone wants them!): https://www.flickr.c...s/55973205@N08/ NOTE: All the effects were done in the (free) Google photos. Locomotive Breath A new locomotive joins the group of built LEGO projects. To commemorate this event, I turned a simple photo into what I think looks like a painting with both 4460 (a 4-8-4 GS-6 Daylight) and the new loco, 6847 (a streamlined 4-8-2 Mountain type). The Sound of Silence Night time at the railroad yard sometime in the late 1960's, and it is almost as quiet as a graveyard. The railroad industry is on life support and yet sill bleeding money at this point in time, with lines of badly maintained and to-be-scrapped engines growing longer every month. Even Brick Railway systems is feeling the pain, and has sidelined streamlined steam locomotive 6847 in order to have it be "eventually" replaced by diesels. (this decision would late be reversed) Elsewhere, Penn Station in New York City is being destroyed and Amtrak is being set in motion while the giant railroad Penn Central is in it's death throes. "and the words of the prophets are written on the station halls, loco walls." Up around the Bend The Emerald Express (headed by 2-6-0 'Mogul" 4613) rounds a tight curve as it heads out of the city of Saint Louis and onto the south-bound mainline track between the Gateway to the West and New Orleans sometime in 1923. The train has stopped here for just a few minutes (long enough for a picture!) as a switch was misaligned and needed to be hand thrown. "Their's a place up ahead and and I'm going, just as fast as my feet can fly!" This photograph was taken at Fort Legoredo station in 1893 and features Engine number 1 (a 4-4-0 American type) and it's crew of three. The crew are as follows: On track: Leroy McCoy - fireman On platform: Sylvester Rhodes - road foreman On cow-catcher: Alex J. - locomotive engineer The 1870's vintage steamer had just been to the company machine shop and had it's balloon stack removed and the engine converted to burn coal when this picture was taken. These modifications were later backdated in the 1920's to allow to the engine to star in Wild Western movies until being retired and donated in 1967. In 2016, the balloon stack was removed again and the engine returned to steam once more with coal as it's fuel. Break on Through (To the Other Side) Here we see engine streamlined 4-8-2 "Mountain"-type 6847 roaring through the eastern end of the Raindance Ridge Tunnel sometime in the early 1960's. This tunnel was a bottleneck for traffic for many years, but land ownership issues concerning the Native American tribe who originally owned the land on which it sits caused many issues. The land was apparently never sold to the railroads but was stolen and the law requires all railroad land not proved to be owned by said railroad goes back to the previous owner: the Native American tribe. So, after a decade of legal wrangling, the tunnel was sold to the railroad for a quite large sum of money in 1975. This allowed the second tunnel to be built for eastern traffic about a half mile downstream of the original 1880 alignment, with the original tunnel is used only for West bound trains. Take the last train to Clarksville The date is sometime in Summer of 1965, the place is Clarksville Grand Central Terminal railroad station, just after the last train has left. The usually busy station tracks are now deserted except for a lone tank engine used for getting coaches ready for their next journey and pulling passenger trains through the washer and onto the servicing tracks. At this midnight hour, the station is quiet and even the steam engine seems to have gone nearly silent, with just a wisp of smoke coming from it's stack. Soon, however, the first sun rays and early Monday morning commuter trains will be arriving and the station will hustle and bustle with the little steam loco running to and fro once more. Dream Weaver "I've just closed my eyes again, and climbed aboard the Dream Weaver train..." I was actually deciding what to call this photo when this Gary Wright song came on the radio. Coincidentally, it features a train in it's lyrics and so the choice to use it was easy. I edited the picture using the free Google photos service, and made it look like it was taken place at night. The engines featured are the General Motors Aerotrain, Southern Pacific 4-8-4 "Warbaby" Daylight, and my fictional Brick Railways Systems streamlined 4-8-2. Mind the Generation Gap Here we see my 1920's Steam locomotive (a 2-8-2 Mikado) meeting it's replacement in freight hauling, a 1950's Diesel engine (MRS-1, to be precise). The Mikado is pulling it's last train before retirement and eventual scrapping while the MRS-1 has just been delivered factory-fresh from ALCO. In reality, no one is getting replaced / scrapped,, as both engines will be still used in their respective railroad eras, which do not overlap much. (I should be building the diesel later this year!) Also, the MRS-1 was a military model, and was not sold to civilian railroads until it became surplus to the US Army's needs in the mid 1970's. Enjoy! I hope this was okay to post here....
  11. This train has quite a past.... The train seen above has been a project of mine in LEGO Digital Designer since 2012. This was the first version from August of that year, and needless to say I bought it and it worked well... on straight track only. So I went back to my drawing board and scrapped the engine. After 4 years of wanting to build it "right" and countless revisions, I (with help from EB users TF Twitch and TheShubes and a lot of parts of Lego sets) have come up with the train seen below. 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. The rear of the loco features a ladder to the tender-top. 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. (link to this part on BL: http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=30613&idColor=11#T=C&C=11 ) The whole train together. I might be mistaken, but user TheShubes may have been the one to inspire these coaches with his own red versions of set 10014. Also, if anyone wants to see the structures that go with this train, please see this thread about the station: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=122130 Speaking of stations, the one in that thread was ordered yesterday.
  12. This is my second review of an official Lego Technic set (the first one on the 42026 Black Champion Racer: ).I am reviewing the 42029 Lego Technic Customized Pickup Truck. Includes unboxing, speed build, overview, impressions, and more. This is my first time experimenting with blue screen/green screen. Please share your thoughts. Is this review significantly better than the review I did on the Black Champion Racer? Also, what do you suggest about this review? Any improvements in method / structure / etc. to be made? Thank you!
  13. Hey guys, I've built several Lego vehicles with MINDSTORMS® and decided to use my experiences with previous vehicles to build a real car. I was originally looking at building a Ford Escape, but the blueprint scaler measurements came out all wrong, so I turned to a Cadillac CTS-V. I'm a fan of the CTS-V, mostly because of the luxurious ride and smoking performance fused into one car. Here's a picture of the real-life vehicle: Please note beforehand that I am building a model based off the Cadillac CTS-V, but not necessarily an exact replica, partly due to less than a total of 2,000 pieces and partly because I don't have a lot of pieces of just one color I'll try to share the blueprint with measurements tomorrow, and because I am already working on a few builds at once, starting this work on spare parts will be a bit slow for a couple weeks. I hope you guys enjoy the progress! If you'd like to, please check out my previous vehicular builds: Outland3r - Outland3r 2.0 - RX2 Thund3r Truck - AWD MiniKart - Chopp3Rod -

    Battle of New Orleans, January 8, 1815

    Displaying at the National Museum of the Marine Corps on April 11th, I had to come up with something featuring the USMC and also what’s apparently become my theme this year, the Anniversary of Something, so here’s my take on this iconic conflict. I only had about 6 hours to build it, so no border, and I would have liked to build up those ramparts higher but overall, fairly satisfied with this one. 100% LEGO except for the custom flags. Click on the pictures below for more detail. —————————— Ever forget something that was really important not to forget? The Battle of New Orleans, fought on January 8, 1815 was the last major combat of the War of 1812. 4732 American combatants, commanded by Major General Andrew Jackson, prevented nearly 11,000 British infantry and Royal Marines, commanded by General Edward Pakenham, from seizing New Orleans as a strategic prize to end the war. The war was actually over by the time the main battle was fought, ended by the Treaty of Ghent on December 24, 1814, but since the US government had not yet approved the treaty, the fighting in Louisiana would continue until the British withdrew on January 18th. One of the most lop-sided victories in history, the British advanced under very heavy fire only to find once they reached the American ramparts that the ladders necessary to ascend the fortifications were not available, having been forgotten by the negligence of the Colonel in charge of them. With limited access to the Americans and taking fire the entire time, all British officers over the rank of Major in the front ranks were killed, leaving no one to sound the retreat. Their casualties were therefore disproportionately high, losing over 2000 in just 25 minutes of fighting, compared to less than 100 American casualties (only 13 were actually killed). As for the USMC, 58 US Marines fought at New Orleans, and they are the American troops portrayed here (hence the USMC uniforms). Hope you like it, comments are welcome! Correction: This was the last major land battle of the war. As 2Maxwell points out below, the last combat was the naval battle between the USS Constitution vs. HMS Levant and HMS Cyane...which would make an outstanding LEGO build sometime as well!
  15. Fictional background: This 4-4-0 (also known as an American type) was built by Rodgers Locomotive & Machine Works for Brick Railway Systems (BRS) in 1870, and features a bright red-yellow-&-black paint scheme. Number 11 pulled passenger trains for 15 years before being reassigned to Freight duties in 1885. By 1890, the engine was worn out, and sent to a scrapper, who sold the engine to a museum for $100. Eventually, the museum was reorganized as the Imperial Rail Museum, where the engine rests today in non-operable condition. There were plans to get number 11 in working order for the US Bicentennial in 1976, but nothing ever came it, and the engine has remained cold and silent to this day. (This engine is the oldest surviving BRS loco in existence.) The model and color scheme was inspired by the steam engine from LEGO Toy Story set #7597 "Western Train Chase" (Link to Bricklink: http://www.bricklink...em.asp?S=7597-1 ) Here is the original model from the stock set. I've tried three times to get this engine right (working pistons and can go around curves + switches) and, twice I've failed. Let's hope the third time's the charm! The rear of the locomotive. Here is a better view of the side rods and wheels. The letters BRS go on the sides of the tender while the number 11 should go on the cab sides. One of these goes on the firebox door in the cab (Bricklink link: http://www.bricklink...asp?P=4150pb086 ) Other than that those parts, everything is where it should be. Here are the car's it's going to pull: (As a side note, the chains on the car ends have a glitch and refused to bend. They are supposed to sit on the 1x1 clip plates, and not the handrail / bar itself.) I was inspired by HunterDobbs and his red train cars to build my own versions. I think he got the idea from set 10173, Holiday Train. (link: http://www.bricklink...m.asp?S=10173-1 ) but his red versions look so much better than the plain white originals. I intened on using these with my 4-4-0 steam engine... once I build I get around to building it! (Here is a link to HunterDobbs' Flickr photostream: https://www.flickr.c.../117260213@N02/ ) Here is the train with 4-4-0. I think it looks like a contrast to my dark green 2-6-0 and matching train. Here is the other train for comparison. The LDD file (for the 4-4-0 engine only) is here, if anyone wants it: http://www.mocpages....1428585286m.lxf The LDD file (for the 4-4-0 & it's train) is here, if anyone wants it: http://www.mocpages....1428593703m.lxf Comments, Questions, and complaints are always welcome!
  16. Hello everybody! I making this topic to showcase my first ever real MOC. I have made things before, but never something exceeding 20cm in length before, or something complex. This MOC is inspired by those beautiful long-nose semi trucks I see on the road everyday here in Canada. I am also inspired by the works of 2LegoOrNot2Lego and Sariel, two people who I say make some of the best trucks out of Lego, visually and technically. For my MOC, I used LDD since I do not have many parts for a semi truck in general, and money wise, I can't afford much right now. This is also my first time using LDD. I have no clue how to use those more advanced programs like LDraw. I am rendering better photos (POV) for my MOC, and an in-depth description of my MOC will follow shortly, but here are some crude teasers :D I made 2 models. One black and one red. Visually, they look the same, except for the color, but internally, they are a bit different. Can you guys guess what features this truck will have? This is my first real MOC, so it is a bit simplistic, but you can still give it a shot! Don't be disappointed to find out it will probably not have most of the extravagant function you guys will hope for :P Aside from the teaser pictures, I didn't make this post for nothing :D I have a questions to ask. I used LDD to make these trucks, and it allows me to generate instructions. But how can I convert the animated instructions into some readable copy? Like a PDF or something, something I can print? I am never gonna sell anything, so I also want to have a PDF file for you guys!
  17. here are some of my lego ww2 creation:
  18. Hi Folks It’s been a long time since I presented my last creation so it’s good time to show something new. Maybe this MOC it is not so fresh (I built it almost 2 months ago) but I think worth to present. The truck was built to my local Lug (LugPol) competition and the goal was that the wining truck will be an accompany to the 42030 Volvo L350F on our Lug exhibition. There was three other trucks built to this contest. But mine got most votes The prize of the contest was outstanding – beside that I received the set for the review, finally I got whole new 42030 for my own! And this is the truck which “made it”: American 4-axle Dump Truck. The truck is fully motorized, it has 2XLs for propulsion, 1 Servo Motor for steering, 2 Medium motors for rising the tipper and hazard lights on top of the roof. The truck weights 2750g, dimensions are: 51,2 x 16,8 x 19,6 cm. It is Powered by two Battery Boxes placed on both sides of the truck. The access is very easy so you can change batteries quickly. In the front there is one pair of PF LEDs and second one is mounted in the rear of the truck. As I mentioned on the roof there are hazard lights. The blinking lights are made from 1x4 Light Brick connected to PF switch which is turned on and off by micromotor. (PF LEDs are connected to the same switch) Rising tipper is operated by two large linear actuators and truck can dump up to 2kg. Drivetrain – only two rear axles are driven – total gear reduction is 1 : 4.2. Enough power to carry and ride with even 7kg of load. Overall appearance you have to judge yourself. I was trying to do my best in two weeks but I think that it’s not bad at all Under the hood you can find V8 engine. And at the end - video.
  19. Hi! This MOC is about the most famous battle of American civil war. Learn more about this event: --- I built defensive line which has been extended along Cemetery Ridge to the hill known as Little Round Top by Union corps under the command of Winfield Scott Hancock. --- You can find pictures of a higher quality here! More pictures: Thanks for watching! C&C are welcome!

    Musclecar

    Hi When I had been building (in March, I think) other things, that are going to appear soon, I have recognized, that I have parts to make a great chassis for simple buggy-ish vehicle. However, then I have seen some musclecars here in Technic forum, so I decieded to build one too. This one is the final product of that build - it is not prepared, I've been building it instantly according to my thoughts. Hope you like it. ;) it is propulsed by one 5292, and for steering it has one servo. It's steering wheel doesn't move, it is just decoration, and at "RC car" it was "redundable mass"...

    MOC. A generic Oldies Police car

    Hey everyone. I've been away from the mod building for a while. But I recently wanted to build a lego police car as compact as possible but still neat and slick. I've done a bit of research.. looking up other mods and this and that. And So I present to you my Little police moc. I wanted to represent a classic oldies police car. But It turned out to be a mixture of many elements and now it appears to be functional but rather bulky overall - which I personally like. And not as Slick as I hoped it would've been. It's still a moc and the way it's been build up in Lego LDD is purely functional in order to make it 'stick' together. I might revise it someday in order to skim it down a bit. Haha. Any help would be appreciated in making it better! Thank you. Or tips and tricks. Ps: I'm also hoping to make it in brick one day. But this is just a WiP version :) (EDIT) Not that I've now reworked the front grill and the side doors. I think it looks better now. it has a more 'meaner' look to it. Also I've tried rendering a picture of it. (Note: This is the old version. The only differences are the grill and door. The rear is still the same!) Thank you!

    [MOC] Route 66

    And here it is... Finally! I have the joy and honour to present you my last work. The legendary Route 66 connecting Chocago and Los Angeles, traversing wild deserts of Arizona. I tried to include everything that makes the US American - a bar, gas station, typical truck and Harley motorcyclits. Okay, enough words. Let's watch the pics: Some more photos will come as soon as Brickshelf staff removes all the naked women pics out of my gallery. And just as a fun-fact. It's actually the biggest MOC so far and te first attempt to build cars. So now I can finally get to do something else... Yay! Have a nice journey!
  24. This is an American Flag MOC I made in LDD. There is a display stand hidden behind the main model. The 2x3 plates with holes are for hanging this MOC from a wall if it were to be built in real life. Click the picture below for a larger picture, and click here to download the LXF file. This MOC is dedicated to all fighters for independence--past, present, and future. -Toa Of Justice
  25. An 8x12 studs MOC vignette, featuring CMF Native American and a clueless researcher. While mapping the land, our brave researcher has become rather lost. However, he is unaware of the tribal hunter hiding in wait behind the bushes. What are his intentions, will he capture him, kill him or perhaps demand a shipment of Firewater? Base without the minifigures. C&C welcome!
