  1. Thrice upon a Time, in a city called Hill Valley California, there was a time machine made out of a Delorean sports car. But this is not about that device and it's many adventures, but a special steam engine that could also travel in time. It was known as... THE TIME TRAIN The Back to the Future (BTTF) Time Train "Jules Verne" has been made in real bricks, and is heavily inspired by he one Team BTTF had presented in their rejected LEGO Ideas model. In BTTF part III, the engine itself was really built, but the tender was CGI animated. The engine used in the film can be seen at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida On the original model, parts of it would spin and the engine could be motorized via Power Functions. I removed those features to save money and make it weight less. I did add working pistons to the model, though. The tender of the time train. "Doc" Emmett Brown (left) and his wife Clara (right) with the time train front and center. EDIT 4/14/15: I removed the cab interior and changed the orange parts on the tender, along with refining the front end. Also, the gizmo no longer spins. EDIT 5/9/18: Added newer pictures, revised the text, and changed some parts of the model to fit into a 10 wide space. EDIT 5/14/18: All but two Bricklink orders are in my hands, with one coming tomorrow and the other on it's way. EDIT 5/20/18: Added real life pictures and revised the text. EDIT 5/25/18: Added revised picture showing the working pistons. The updated LDD file for the finished model is available at Bricksafe.
  2. Location: C06 - Hyreal Tags: Spaceshsip, Spying "Ahead full Mr Watson!" "Aye Sir! Ahead full." "Ms. Thorneberry, set course due north." "Aye, Sir. Course bearing Three-Six-Zero!" "Any sign of our rival corporation?" "No sign ahead sir that I can discern. Perhaps you wish to try our new SpyglassTM!" "Oh My, this is jolly good. The optics are most exquisite!" "Ah-ha! I have them!" "They appear to be loading some form of weapon. It's rather over-sized and the projectile is most peculiar." "In fact it appears to be some form of spacecraft." "Sir, perhaps it is a canon for launching space vessels. If one could provide enough force via compressed steam or other explosive medium, theoretically one could overcome both gravity and atmospheric resistance and achieve orbit." "A most excellent deduction, Ms. Thorneberry!" "Ah yes, behind the crane; behold a large fusion boiler, easily capable of providing just such a charge!" Additional pics...
