    (MOC) DSB Litra DB (II)

    Presenting another Danish wagon...a design-project for another Danish LUG-member to build and test in real bricks (!) DSB Litra DB (II) The Danish State Railways' (DSB) improved Litra DB (II) travelling post offices (TPOs) were built by Scandia in Denmark. 5 were built in 1961. All have been scraped today, the last one in 2011. The model: Digital but has been built and being tested irl with free bulding instructions also in the works Original DSB maroon livery used from the fifties to the seventies - with Dark Red a very good match albeit a bit too clean Scale: ~1:50 Lenght: 34 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 808 (very heavy, so ball bearings recommended) Designed: 2012 & 2017 & 2019 Sadly the LEGO Digital Designer file was lost a few years ago when all my data were lost (including multiple backups). So I had to recreate the model from scratch using two remaining screenshots posted online. Rather strange experience to reverse engineering yourself Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals done in the PartDesigner tool and some manuel editing. The roof can be removed, giving access inside the wagon and the doors can slide in opposite directions by flipping the blocking hinge parts down. Technique used for the bogies - prepared for ball bearings Maybe some photoes of the real thing will be added later when completely done...
  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

    (MOC) DSB IC3

    Presenting another Danish train... DSB IC3 The 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: Room for lights in all headlights and interior. Scale: 1:50 Lenght: 140 bricks (MFA 46 bricks - FF bricks 40 - MFB 46 bricks) Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 2.084 (9v) or 2.079 (PF) Powered: 2 x 9v or 2 x PF train motors with 2 x battery boxses Designed: 2017 Digital model but built by me (and many others) irl Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals done in the PartDesigner tool. Free building instructions: DSB IC3 9v variant here DSB IC3 PF variant here DSB original white and red livery of the 1990-2000s: View from the side - unfortunately the wide gab between the units is necessary to run through R40 curved tracks smoothly: Access to the interior with seating for 54 minifig passengers, 2 train drivers and additional space for 2 bicycles, standing passengers, stewards and 2 toilet guests: FF unit (PF) with 2 IR Receivers, 2 Battery Boxes and 1 Polarity Switch: Technique used for the sliding toilet doors - turning the Pneumatic T Piece 90° behind the seat keeps the door shut when closed: Youtube video from fellow Danish LUG member Knud Ahrnell Albrechtsen:
  4. As regular readers of this forum well know, I have an interest in onboard remote decoupling, see for example my (old) article in Railbricks. Recently I updated the decoupling bogie design to be more mechanically robust, to have wheels with lower rolling resistance and (hopefully) to look better. With the deoupling bogie ready I needed a new locomotive to try it in....so I designed a new locomotive around the bits and pieces needed…. This time I decided to make a build solely with bricks already "in stock"....hence not the normal shopping rounds on bricklink. I found the german Vossloh locomotives and liked their light grey / green livery which also matched my available bricks and elements. The green cab really cried for white decals so I used some Danish DSB that I already had….. But DSB + Vossloh is not a combination from real-life, as far as I know, so please see this as a product of my own imagination… The locomotive is quite full of PF Components: Battery box, IR receiver, M-motor + gearing for driving the mini actuator plus a regular train motor for propulsion.
  5. LEGO Train 12 Volts

    NOHAB MY 1111

    Hello everyone, the European journey is now complete! I wanted to conclude with Denmark: the nation that has created Lego toys ...paying tribute with the magnificent DSB Nohab! The hardest part was making the three-axle trolleys, but searching on the net I've never found anything I liked. I know that the bogie I made will disappoint the purists but in its simplicity this is what everyone would want! To make it, I've used a Dremel and I'm quite satisfied with the result. To power the locomotive, I have perhaps invented a Columbs' egg: using a normal train motor, vertically oriented, inside the body of the locomotive. To satisfy the overall dimensions I've realized this machine in 7 studs. As always the model has a switch to turn on the front and back lights; the power switch is behind the windscreen and the receiver is mounted upside down under the main body. Have fun with photos... For the next few months, after some interludes with cars from Spain and Italy, the latest creations will be from Germany and only Germany! After that my trains collection will be DEFINITIVELY completed ... stay tuned!
  6. Presenting another Danish shunter...DSB Litra MH 322 History: The Danish State Railways (DSB) diesel shunter Litra MH were built in great numbers by Frichs in Denmark from the year 1960 to 1965. In all 120 shunters were built to replace the steam shunters still being used. The shunters were repainted in the 80's to black and red from the original dark green. The last shunter was decommissioned in 2001. ©Hans Stückler My model: Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 455 Motortype: PF Model built: 2012-14 The stickers are homemade with self-adhesive labels printed by a copy shop and then cut by myself to fit. The upper part is primarily constructed with plates and tiles, in general only a few standard bricks are used in the construction. The model is run by PF and requires one 9v battery connected by custom adapter to the Power Functions M-Motor. Pull and speed are acceptable. The shunter pulling a white Litra Gs wagon.
  7. Presenting another Danish shunter... The Danish State Railways (DSB) first radio controllable shunter Litra MK was built in Germany by Siemens from the year 1996 to 1998. 25 were built in all. All but one shunter were transferred to DSB subsidiary Railion in 2001 and DB Schenker Rail in 2007. My LEGO model is my second attempt at the Litra MK and is the DSB Gods version. Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 410 Motortype: PF Model built: 2013-14 The stickers are homemade again. Lots of somewhat fragile greebles. No room for the driver in the cap Only PF can be used to run the model and requires one 9v battery connected by custom adapter to the Power Functions M-Motor. Pull and speed are acceptable.
  8. Well, presenting another Köf...with wagons DSB Litra Køf The Danish State Railways (DSB) shunter Køf was the Danish built version by Frichs of the legendary German Köf (Kleinlokomotive, Öl-antrieb durch dieselmotor, kraftübertragung mit Flüssigkeitbetriebe). 40 Køf shunters were built from the year 1966 to 1969 and a few are still in service today. Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 17 bricks Width: 8 bricks Bricks: 270 Motortype: 9v or PF Model built: 2012 Easy access to the IR Receiver: Either 9v or PF can be used to run the model but PF requires the PF train motor to be connected to the older 9v battery box by extension wire in a very tight fit with little room to spare. DSB Litra Gs (I) Danish State Railways (DSB) classic 2-axle covered wagons with sliding doors Litra Gs (I) were built in Denmark by Scandia in huge numbers (2.871) from the year 1953-1964. A few are still used today Scale: 1:50 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 518 Model built: 2013 The doors can be opened though not by sliding: Distance between the fixed wheels are 12 bricks and goes through points and curves ok but with some resistance: Access through the roof: DSB Gs (I) wagons pushed by DSB Køf:
