  3. (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
  4. 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!
  5. 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.)

    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
