    Coal Gondolas for Unit Train

    These are the coal gondolas that are used with my unit coal train as part of my coal train facility. Each car can hold one large PAB cup worth of material.

  3. Hello guys I thought I would open a new topic to show off all of the beautiful chairlifts/gondolas/ropeways that you guys have built. I will include everyones flickr youtube and so on in this post. @PG52: https://m.youtube.com/user/pg5200/videos @Elias Iten: https://m.youtube.com/user/eliasiten/videos @dagupa: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCuDz-_Yhx43imV7QJV3Eaag/videos Tailgunner088: https://m.youtube.com/user/Tailgunner088/videos antoine ddp: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC7bVmCheE-a9DTFZN3HKRrg/videos @PistenBully 600 : https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCN_lVkaX3dTrMEnnlwQGbpw/videos The Timmy376: https://m.youtube.com/user/TheTimmy376/videos aylac: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC86hWT9xGcqNbSiZXl2T3Fg/videos Im shure there are many more out there so this will never be complete but be shure to show me more so I can include them/you in this post. also feel free to ask anything about how to build lego ropeways!

  4. Similar to my thread of a year ago, wanted to share a couple more freight cars I've been building on the side: Conrail N6A I've shown this Conrail transfer caboose in a couple of my threads, but never formally, so here it is. The prototype is one of several classes of transfer caboose Conrail inherited from the Penn Central. The model was designed almost two years ago, and I got around to putting it together last year. The "skirt" that covers the tops of the wheels is typically the toughest thing to model on American freight cars: if you run on R40 track, the bogies usually need to pivot enough such that the wheels will scrape... this isn't a problem on the N6A because it's quite short; no fancy engineering is required to compensate! The geometry of the skirt and such are still similar to that of my earlier flatcar. And with stickers Brickshelf Gallery PRR G43 Like the caboose, this gondola might have shown up a few times, but never formally. The G43 is a 52' gondola built during the last decade of the PRR. Most of them went to PC and then Conrail. This model was designed and built last year. The dimensions are very similar to the aforementioned flatcar, and it's basically built the same way: the structural component (the sides) is studs-out, and the floor and trucks are studs-up. Once again, much of the work done to make the skirts work on the flatcar are applicable here. Thus, the hardest thing here was figuring out what to do about the shallow trapezoidal part in the middle - eventually I went with wing plates. Finally, this probably should have been dark red or reddish brown, but all three colors seemed to somewhat off, so I ended up going with the most common. I also looked at weathered designs, but its a little bit too difficult when there are a lot of large, exposed parts like the wings. Brickshelf Gallery Alaska Railroad 15800 Series This is a side-dump car, typically used for MoW work. Technically Wikipedia thinks its a type of gondola. As you can see, the specialized feature of this type of car is that it empties sideways: unfortunately the model does not have this feature! This car has actually never been posted: I only recently completed the design and model: Doing the textures on the sides was a little big challenging, especially trying to "blend" it with the ends. On the prototype there are a ton of funny angles that are hard to model in LEGO. Construction is otherwise typical: studs-out for the body, studs-up for the chassis. Those droid-body things are really good for the big pneumatic pistons. Brickshelf gallery Finally, this is a repost, but here is the gondola and caboose running with my EMD Model 40:
  5. Those of you with good memories may remember this gondola: It first appeared in the thread for @Commander Wolf's T18, and has since appeared in various videos of our locomotives. The gondola is a relatively straightforward design, being a modernized version of the body from 4543 Railroad Tractor Flatbed mated to trucks from the My Own Train series of cars (10013, 10015, 10016, 10017). Besides being pleasantly "official" in style, the design is fairly international; we liked it because it looked decent when paired with locomotives from various parts of the world. I've gone ahead and made instructions for this model: You can get them in PDF form below: International Gondola (PDF) In exchange, would you mind giving me some feedback on the instructions themselves? For example, are they easy to follow? What don't you like about them? etc. Enjoy! P.S. If you prefer images to a pdf, there is a Brickshelf gallery here (pending moderation).

    MOC: Hi-Rail Excavator

    Presenting my hi-rail exacavator. It is a fun little creation I put together for an upcoming LUG meeting at train themed brewery. It is driven by the rubber tires mounted to a PF train motor. The battery box and IR receiver are located in the high side gondola. It is made to stand up to children playing with it. I got the inspiration from a picture of the LEGO display at LEGO World. A designer took the 4203 set and put it on rails. I don't think he/she used a train motor since his/her wheels are spaced much further apart. He/she also used a box car with draw bar. I think a gondola would make more sense to pair with an excavator to dump material into. Hi-rail Excavator by dr_spock_888, on Flickr Here it is running on some tracks: I morphed it from this originally:
  7. While skiing I had the idea to reproduce an entire detachable ropeway just with LEGO-Technic-Bricks. After 400 hours of developing, testing and programming the model was built from scratch without any construction plans. This ropeway is an improved version of my first ropeway 2 years ago ;) This model-ropeway works just as its real brother. The eight gondolas are detached in the stations and slowed down to let passengers board easily. But not just the cable-clamp-mechanism is realized like in real ropeways but also the rope tensioner. This mechanism keeps the haul-rope always tensioned by the information of the sensors. Other sensors supervise the distance between the gondolas and adjust it when needed by slowing down a specific motor. Also the haul-rope is monitored by sensors. If the rope falls out of a deflection pulley the whole system performs an emergency-stop. The entire model and even the whole control system with sensors and processors consists of usual LEGO-parts and is driven by 16 motors in total. Along with about 300 gears and 1‘000 chain-links, 10'000 parts were needed. Pictures of the building process can be found on Facebook Next year I plan to build an intermediate station with another 6’000 parts. The whole ropeway-model then will be powered by 30 motors, 4 Mindstorms-Computers, 15meters of technic-chain-links and about 500 gears.

    Life in Illryia

    Here's my entry to the Varlyrio challenge. Inspired by de Gothia, MikeyB, and everyone else who has built in Varlyrio. This was a ton of fun to build and I hope you like it All C&C welcome
