Hey guys, been meaning to post this for quite some time. Here is my version (heavily based on swoofty's excellent rendition). 6 wide, unpowered riding on the famous "talltim slider trucks." Let me know what you think! Enjoy.

jtlan posted a topic in LEGO Train TechAfter the last boxcab, Commander Wolf and I figured we had to go smaller. And slower. So we decided that both of us should build a motorized model of a GE 23-ton boxcab. We agreed to build them models independently, then meet up and compare approaches. We started with the same scaling image: Since there was some variation among the prototypes, choice of details was a matter of taste. I took most of my references from here. Here's my finished model: The original locomotive is really tiny, so I tried to keep the model about 7 studs wide. There's a lot of SNOT in this model: The main chassis is upside-down, the deckplate and frames are held against that using Technic pins, and the body attaches to some jumpers on the deckplate: The battery box is mounted sideways in the body and the power switch is reached by jabbing an antenna through the window. The roof is actually only held on by gravity: Originally I wasn't sure if I was going to put the caution-stripe tiles on the frames, but codefox421 vouched for them. You can see the full Brickshelf gallery here. So, what did Commander Wolf do? Read on...
Hi everyone, I've not been on the forum for a couple of months due to other commitments but I thought I'd show you what I've been building throughout the summer. The video below covers the full interior I've added to the modular Grand Emporium set. I have turned it into a hat shop with different floors for different styles of hat. On the top floor is a small cafe and toilet facilities. Hope you like the video. I'd love to hear your comments. Mike
Hi all, in late April I decided to start making the billboard on GE a seasonal themed piece instead of just the standard minifig head and present. I'm trying to keep all of the designs in the spirit of the original in that they must be made on a 6 x 12 plate and 3D is acceptable (within reason). So far I've made billboards for two consecutive weeks: May the Fourth Mothers Day Feel free to jump on the bandwagon and make your own billboards, I haven't noticed any other mods out there which I find a bit strange.
