    River Canyon Railroad

    Hi all, I've recently come out of my dark ages and decided to get back into Lego trains! One thing I've always found fascinating is mountain railroading. I remember looking for the old railroad grades in the mountains on family trips to Colorado, and I enjoy reading about how they were constructed through the mountains. (The Denver, Northwestern & Pacific's standard gauge line over Rollins Pass is pretty incredible). This project takes inspiration from a Denver and Rio Grande Western Line between Buena Vista and Leadville, CO as well as the Yosemite Valley railroad in California. I'm planning on creating five sections for this. The railroad will pass over the river at some point (still playing with a couple ideas!). It won't be a full loop, but I enjoy making dioramas. With the space I have available, I can add a lot more detail to a diorama display. Two questions for you guys: 1) Getting the slopes to line up is pretty tricky. What's really tough is making the supports line up to brace the upper mountainside. Has anyone made any references for these kinds of things? I was thinking of making some basic models to really figure out how to line things up. I was hoping to avoid going into calculating LDU's and such, but with all the angles, it might be necessary. 2) Has anyone made wide radius curve L-draw files (R56, R72, R88)? I searched the forum and found links for the ME-models library and R104 Bricktracks on Lgauge.org, but I found the ME models ones to be kinda finicky. Let me know what you think! I played with a couple different methods for detailing and attaching the trees and grass, etc so I'm open to feedback and to other ideas as well! I plan on updating this thread as I finish the other modules. Thanks!

  2. We managed to find the wanted Rodian at Mos Eisley, thinking he was just another smuggler trying to hide out on Tatooine. But it turns out he wasn't your everyday space scum. No, this Rodian was caught stealing imperial codes, no doubt to sell them to Rebels. As soon as we called him over he ran and made us chase him down to the flea markets on the outskirts. He was fast and he even tried to use the crowds as cover, probably thinking that we wouldn't shoot, but catching him was more important. Get out of the way! Blasted! He's gonna get away. Aim for his legs. We only need him alive. He tried to hide through the crowd but as soon as blaster shots were fired, a wide path opened leading us straight to him. All it took was a few shots and just like that the Rodian fell to the ground, dropping his blaster and the Imperial codes. Don't move Rebel scum! Call in HQ, tell them to get the interrogation droid ready. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hey guys, back with the final part of my Tatooine intro arc. I tried to make the most of my tan pieces on this build, especially for the cliff side and I also finally got to use those ewok glider cloth pieces I'm so fond of. All in all, I'm pretty happy with this build. So tell me what you guys think and thanks for viewing. Please judge this build.
