  1. Unit Coal Train at Brickworld KC 2019 Loading_Station_BWKC_2019_01 by Terry Akuna, on Flickr Loading_Station_BWKC_2019_02 by Terry Akuna, on Flickr
  2. An old project finalized after seven years Herningværket Vestkraft I/S All three typers of wagons were part of the company's famous coal train "kultoget" transporting coal from Vestkraft in the costal city of Esbjerg to Herningværket power plant in the inland city of Herning from the year 1982 to 2000. FALS coal wagon Digital model but built in 2012The 18 coal wagons were built in Denmark by Scandia in 1981-82 on license from Talbot in Germany.All were sold to France in 2000.My model:Scale: ~1:50Lenght: 30 bricksWidth: 8 bricksBricks: 312Weight: 335gDesigned: 2012 (slightly updated in 2018)Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals done in the PartDesigner tool. The doors can be opened up to 45 degrees: Top view: ASJ tank wagon Digital model but being built very soon... The six tank wagons bought by Vestkraft I/S in 1981 were originally built in 1948-49 by AB Svenska Järnvägsverkstäderna (ASJ) in Falun, Sweden. All six were scrapped in 1991. My model: Scale: ~1:45 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 6-8 bricks Bricks: 302 Designed: 2019 Very high setting render from Stud.io using custom decorations from Stud.io, LDD to Pov-Ray and manual editing. Side view: The two 1-axle boogies can rotate and are held in place by a Hose, Flexible Ribbed with 8mm Ends, 10L. Technique used for the mid-cylinder: AVG tank wagon Digital model. The two AVG tank wagons bought by Vestkraft I/S in 1991 were originally built in 1968 by AB Gävle Vagnverkstäder (AGV) in Gävle, Sweden. Both were removed from service in 2002 and scrapped in 2003. My model: Scale: ~1:45 Lenght: 40 bricks Width: 6-8 bricks Bricks: 361 Designed: 2019 Very high setting render from Stud.io using custom decorations from Stud.io, LDD to Pov-Ray and manual editing. Some of the custom decorations were truly horrific to render due to their bend Top view: Technique used for the mid-cylinder: The locomotives (!) Both types of locomotives were from the Danish State Railways (DSB). In the the earlier years of operation from 1982 to 1993 two Litra MX (1001 & 1024) were used, one in the front and one in the back whereas in the later years from 1993 until the end of operation in 2000 a single more powerful Litra MZ (I) (1404) were used. DSB Litra MX The Litra MX locomotives were built on license from General Motors by Nydquist & Holm AB - Bofors-Nohab in Trollhättan, Sweden. 45 were built from 1960-1962. The Litra MX were very similar to their big brother Litra MY but had a smaller engine and lower weight with less pressure on the tracks making them popular on smaller railroads. Quite a few are still used today by private railway companies either domestic or abroad. One locomotive is on display at a railway museum in the city of Stuer, Denmark. My model: Digital model but based on my very first train MOC from 2011 with the same basic design. DSB red and black livery used in the 1980s. Room for lights in all headlights and the interior. Scale: ~1:60 Lenght: 40 bricks Width: 6 bricks Bricks: 546 Powered: 1 or 2 x PF, PUp or 9v train motor(s) Designed: 2019 (variant of my Litra MY update in 2018) Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals done in the PartDesigner tool. Interior: One of my pictures from 2013 with a Litra MY pulling some of the coal wagons: DSB Litra MZ (I) The Danish State Railways (DSB) powerful Litra MZ (I) locomotives were built by Swedish Nydquist & Holm AB (Nohab) in Sweden and subcontractors in Denmark on license from General Motors. 10 were built from 1967-1969. 61 in total were built across all MZ variants (I-IV). Quite a few are still used today by private railway companies either domestic or abroad, in Iran, Norway and Australia. My model: Digital model but based on my second train MOC from 2011 with the same basic design. DSB red and black livery used in the 1980s. Scale: ~1:60 Lenght: 40 bricks Width: 6 bricks Bricks: 653 Powered: 1 or 2 x PF, PUp or 9v train motor(s) Redesigned: 2015 (4st revision) Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals done in the PartDesigner tool and some manual color replacement of the upper headlights. The top can easily be lifted providing access to the battery box and all others parts inside: Photo inspired by LEGO train builder Sérgio Batista
  3. These are typical "concrete" steam locomotive coaling and water towers of the mid-1900's for North America. Both models feature lowering chutes / spouts, for the imaginary fuel to flow down into the waiting engine below. (Which in this case is a 0-6-0ST switcher locomotive that has been built for some time. You can see it in it's own thread here.) For the coal tower, I was inspired by the website LGauge. However, unlike my more recent smaller versions of said tower, I have gone back to the larger 2014 version with it's odd-stud dimensions. This means it's a lot taller, wider and has a ton more pieces than before. It also has two chains to hold the new chute at the optimum height to clear the roof-top's of locomotives, while not being to high to look silly. The rear of the coal tower. The girders in the rear are supposed to "hold" a conveyor bucket system to get coal to the top of the tower to replenish the supply inside the structure. Of course, since it's Lego, this system is imaginary. With the brand-new water tower design, however, I was inspired by my Father's work with a smaller version of the same basic idea. I enlarged the basic dimensions dramatically and used castle wall-top pieces to boost the structural integrity of the now 14 stud-wide model. The rear of the water tower. What you see above is what you will get in the ldd file, which is available here at Bricksafe. It's a slightly older model, but all it's missing is the two 16-L chains and the two 32 x 16 base plates. Enjoy the file, and as usual: comments, questions or complaints are always welcome!

    [G:E9 U vs. DK] Protectors of the Earth

    (POV Amir Navabi) After traveling to the Ulandian Camp outside Petraea, I had been ordered to raid Desert King territory. The Northmen, like the mercenaries they were, refused to raid with us. They had agreed to help the siege of Petraea, nothing more, nothing less. But I was ready to serve my allies. We had found a Desert King Coal mine.....and we intended to destroy it. The Desert King's war machine ran on coal, and needed mines like this. The Desert King might well be able to rouse untold numbers.........but no matter how many soldiers, they needed swords. And swords required fires. Hot fires. After defeating the only warrior among them, I faced him down, but there was something familiar about him.......... "Amir!" He exclaimed. "Brother!" "Aram.....You support the Desert King?" "Indeed, Brother, and loyally so. Like my parents." Then the Lieutenant called out I turned my back- as my brother attempted treachery. I twirled around, and in so doing, cut off my brother's hand. He cried out in pain, and fell, having failed in his treachery. We set fire to the shaft, and within minutes, it would be no more. As the building fell apart. I was ready to leave.....then I heard a sound. I was moaning......my brother's moaning. "What are you doing?" The Lieutenant asked, incredulously. I moved his body away from death, and wrapped his wound. I had honor, where my brother had none. For the Praise of His Glory! ~Andrew
  7. After 7 months of engineering and building, I'm proud that I can present you my new video! In the video you'll see three coal trains riding around. They can load at two silos and unload at the main terminal. The unloaded coals are delivered by conveyor belts and an excavator to the loading silos, so a continuous loop is possible! The unloading part is the most complicated part of the structure: pneumatic cilinders will push a conductor to the bottom of the wagons, where also a conductor is located. These conductors power motors in the wagon which open a hatch in the bottom of the Lego coal wagon. The coals drop on a conveyor belt and are transported with other conveyor belts and an excavator to the silos. It's all automated by 6 Arduino controllers (including the arduino that controls the passenger trains). I cleared out the living room (GF was away for a few days, as planned) with a friend of mine and after 12 hours of setting the whole thing up we could finally begin with running some trains and commission the whole thing! Obviously the whole thing didn't work at once, so a hilarious fails-video is on the way too. Enjoy, share and let me know what you think of it!
  8. This shed was first built around 2005 by my father as a present to me. It was originally three tracks long, with no side workshop, until I was about to order parts to increase it's length to four tracks. I suddenly decided that while I was at it, it should probably have a removable roof. It kinda snowballed from there into this design seen here. I added a workshop (with it's own removable roof) to the left side of the model. I then took the main section's roof off and made it detachable. The building is 100% build-able, but there is a catch: (Purists look away now!) I'm going to cut a 12 x 24 stud section of an already butchered 48 x 48 baseplate (It's currently in a 12 x 48 size strip, with thre rest being used on my father's own train shed) and replace the hodgepodge of baseplates seen in the picture. Basically, I'm keeping a 32 x 16 and two 16 x 16's for the main shed with the custom plate for the side work-area. The inside will be taken up by my dark green 2-6-0 "Mogul"-type steam locomotive number 4613. The workshop features tools from set 10027: (2003's Train Shed) a metal lathe, drill press and tool drawers, plus a coffee machine. The rear of the model. I only need to buy about 50% of the bricks. There are 833 total bricks in my new model minus the 418 in the original (unmodified) model, so 415 bricks to buy. (Those 3x4 roof slopes are going to be expensive!) My father built his original gray and black Water Tower way back in the 1990's, back when 9V was king. He made me my water tower in 2007, but I later realized that it needed a companion coaling tower. I made my first attempt at a much larger size than this using pictures from LGauge.com, a website of older Lego train models. Rear view of the refueling towers. I have these two models on my desk as we speak. (The coal tower was built in mid-December 2014.) Here is the LDD file for the shed + workshop: http://www.mocpages.com/user_images/80135/1424113318m.lxf And here is the LDD file for the coal + water towers: http://www.mocpages....1412536438m.lxf

    MOD: Emerald Night Coal

    Hey Guys! I am sure many of you have most likely already done this but I still wanted to share! Ever since I got my Emerald Night I always thought the battery box looked so out of place. So i had tried flat tiles which didn't work. So I thought just to make is look like a rocky coal bed! Coal for a more realistic look on the Emerald night by Railco1, on Flickr There is a 4x4 plate at the back for easy removal to turn on the train with ease! Side view of the tender by Railco1, on Flickr The side view is a little odd (as the height is different), but I like it. Sorry for glare didn't have the best of lighting. Hope you guys like it! -RailCo
