[MOC] DSB IC3 (8-wide DMU)
dtomsen posted a topic in LEGO Train TechPresenting another of my Danish State Railways’ (DSB) trains redesigned to 8-wide and digitally rendered (with a bonus livery)... DSB IC3The Danish State Railways’ (DSB) highly successful and innovative InterCity 3 (IC3) passenger train was co-developed by Siemens Duewag in Germany and ABB Scandia in Denmark.The train is operated by DSB in Denmark and Sweden, by Renfe Operadora in Spain and by Israel Railways in Israel.Amtrak in the USA and Via Rail in Canada have tested the train in the past.A trainset consists of three units, two diesel motor units (MFA and MFB) and one intermediary unit (FF).Up to five trainsets can be coupled together. 96 trainset were built for DSB from 1989 to 1991.All are still in service today.My model: Named "Jørgen Vig" Scale: 1:48 Length: 157 studs (MFA: 55 - FF: 47 - MFB 55) or approx. 122 cm Width: 8 studs Bricks: 2.912 (MFA: 1.032 - FF: 841 - MFB 1.039) Locomotion: 2 x 9v or 2 x PF/PUP train motors Power: 9v, 2 x LEGO AAA battery boxes or 2 x BuWizz battery boxes Control: 9v, PUP, SBrick, PFx Brick or BuWizz Designed: 2022 Conversion of my 7-wide model from 2017 to 8-wide with more accurate dimensions. Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals added in the PartDesigner tool. Its able to navigate R40 but would look rather silly tho: Interior with seats for 83 minifigs: Decorative side design for the bogies - a combination of parts and the molded decorative side for train motors: The coupling part can be change to a Liftarm Thin 1x4 (BL#32449) when combining several trainsets. Technique used for the sliding doors: Removing the 1 x 4 Tile as shown enables the door to slide open as a play feature. The fixed outer doors are a necessary part of the construction otherwise the very long body breaks too easily due to the roof being removable. However, they are designed to be rebuilt open when needed and the trainset stationary on display: The trainset is (fictionally) named Jørgen Vig with the crest of Billund added: Bonus livery: Livery when Amtrak tested the IC3 Flexliner DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit ) in 1997:
