  1. On September 29th, 1973, a new School house ROCK (link to wiki page for those unfamiliar with what that is) music video was played for the first time alongside your regular American Saturday morning cartoons such as Scooby-Doo, old Rocky and Bullwinkle show episodes and maybe some Johnny Quest. This new music video featured a diminutive stereotypical train conductor, two hobos (one fat and tall, and one small and skinny), and a train with words on it... not just any words, but CONJUNCTIONS, as the name of the video and location is Conjunction Junction. This train is shown below, with comments about what it could possibly be carrying in the fictional ROCK-verse. The first two (NOT + THIS) are obviously Boxcars. The BUT tanker (most likely hauling Butane) and THAT boxcar. Finally, AND (which is possibly a refrigerated goods wagon) plus an OR (ore) hopper. Oddly, there was no locomotive mentioned or seen in the video.... thus, I have not included one here. (However, since it skews American in car styling, I'll be using a steam loco for this of that origin.) The green caboose is my own custom addition, with my sig-fig hanging on for dear life! All together, these train cars taught (and entertained!) generations of school-age children and some older adults about Conjunctions, and other videos taught about American history, the environment, math (multiplication tables up to 12 but skipping the number 1), science, money and even early home computers! (among MANY other subjects) All of them can be found on Disney +, as Disney owns ABC, which is who made the original music videos, and the newer ones up to 2009. However, what's a freight train without someone or somewhere to tell it where to go next? Enter the railyard dispatch center, which is not just any old building: it's the Conjunction Junction dispatch office as seen in the education cartoon series Schoolhouse Rock "Conjunction Junction" episode from September '73. The sign on the roof of the building should say "Conjunction Jct.", just as it did in the show... except I'm (still) missing three printed 1 x 1 letters to make the sign work. I've made some changes to the original cartoon design, such as adding a removable roof to the building (for getting access to the inside details), and placing a water tower nearby for thirsty steam locomotives. The tower top rotates a full 360 degrees with the water pipe, allowing the engineer to pull up, get his loco full of (imaginary) water, shove the pipe away, and move on. Also, there is a dilapidated boxcar behind the water tower for the Junction's two resident hobos. Inside the openable building is a typical furniture for the 1930-'50's time period which I think the cartoon takes place in. This includes: - corner desk with telephone, a railroad oil can, and lantern, plus two chairs - oil fired heater / stove - time clock next to a day-at-a-time calendar showcasing a exotic locale - potted plant, just because! So, what's YOUR function? EDIT 9/24/21: added final pictures of the office. MOC is now finished!
  2. Special Thanks to you all. My Lego ideas project (X Eyed Junction) is about to reach 1K. Creativity and imagination is the concept of Lego and this project too. It is an entire new idea in itself. A thought from imagination to reality. Never seen of heard before. 10,000 votes will make this junction becomes a reality. Click the link and hit "support" => https://ideas.lego.com/projects/07905230-58bd-4963-8662-a89dddcdbe34 You would not have ever heard about this. It is an Innovative idea. No Movie!!! No Theme!!, but just imagination and innovation. Designers start on a theme and then the fantastic model comes up, but here its exactly reversed. The JuNcTiOn got created first and then the name, theme started to pop up. Sounds little Funny right, but it really worked. Look at the name and link it with the Junction. The 2 Big X symbols at the Top and of course not to forget the EyEs looking for you. From this the name came out as “X Eyed”. To further on the excitement, we both (my 7 year old champ and myself) tried to Rhyme and shine. X Eyed becomes X Sight (Rhyming with Excite). That’s about the name. Like wise there is much more interesting things. Hopefully you CuRiOsiTy is arousing more and more COME one, COME all In every Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, X EyEd JuNcTiOn is standing Tall. Awaiting to Welcome you All !!! Location It cannot be in a forest of cement (city), but some place which is little windy and the natural air keeps the atmosphere cool. Can’t think of a long highway stretch alongside a beach, but of course little desolated. This location serves a natural feeling and suits the JuNcTiOn. Surrounding The JuNcTiOn, in its own, is open from all sides as like our ThOuGhTs, which have endless possibilities. For better ambience, the 2 antique cars and stranded ship has been positioned on each side. This does not completely cover the JuNcTiOn, but it wraps an amazing feeling over it. Entrance The entrance will surely catch your attention or should I say, it will catch your Eyeeeeee. Whether it’s the X Eyed at the top or the little plants on the side. Careful !!! there are monster tooths on the pillars. Of course, you can’t miss the 4 circular studs hanging around. The pillars combine and form the shape of an Asian palace or temple with a golden pyramid at the top centre. A small red light at the centre is eagerly awaiting to welcome you. Hey!!! Wait, don’t drive away with Antique cars. It is for your pleasure only… Hope you enter soon !!! Inner place Hey, its really great and amazing. You have finally set your foot in here... We always spot big things first and so you will notice the Stranded ship. But there are other things too. You can better hop to the corner glass holder to get you glass or grab a drink from the table. Did you notice, there are 2 semi circular areas where you can stand out loud or just have a heighted seat. Cautious !!! Don’t bump into others as its gets little crowdy sometimes. You can always take a quick snap with the stranded ship or just Hop on to the Antique cars for fun. The EyEs are not just at the entrance. Look carefully, it is also at the Antique Cars and the Stranded Ship. It is like signaaaaling you Beware !! We are keeping an EyE on youuuuu… Color The color combination is revolving around Brown and it shades with a combination a dark red. This matches to the color theme of Sand and goes well with the surroundings. Light & Bright JuNcTiOn opens up in the evening and the transparent lights of red, orange and yellow brighten it up. The light and color theme goes hand in hand. It will glow in the dark. Don’t you think that the NaTuRaL Mooooon Light will further add on to the charm. Stranded Ship Don’t Whisper and tell this to anyone. Let me tell you a secret… SsSsShhhhh… It is not a ship but a ship like structure so that people get amazed. I just got some old parts from a shutdown factory, colored it, assembled it, put on some lights and that’s it…. Does not really look like… I know, but don’t share this with anyone. I Trust you Antique Cars Why does it have such a design? Whats so special about it? Think, Think and Think. Whosoever visits here is thinking on them and so will you J. You figure out for yourself. Take some time to think.
