  1. I've loved the 4554 Metro Train Station ever since I was little. It had always been "The ultimate train station" in my mind and something I wanted over any train station that was out while I was growing up. (4554 came out almost a decade before I was born if that gives some context). Anyway, I finally got it a few years ago and it's still very cool, though it does have the feature of an open back and a not deep interior for play. I recently got a full workstation for Lego building up and all my parts organized in drawers, so I thought I'd try and remedy that. However, I've modified old sets in the past, but for this one, I wanted to create a back without modifying the original set in the slightest. Here is the original 4554 set for reference. And here it is with my extension. I tried to essentially mirror any details over from one side to the other, such as the 1x1 round plates under the tiles or the 3 cones on the top. There were many different ways I could've gone for the back, but I decided to make it rather plain. I could do something in the center to try and get the columns and arches over the doorways to this side, but I only had one of those doors. Oh well. If it really bothers me, I can make some bricklink orders in the future, but for now, I'm happy. The rear section on it's own I hate leaving any of my builds without an interior, and I felt the 4554 was missing some more detail on the inside, so I added it here. Another bench on the left side mirror the original one to create a better waiting room. The white thing is a train schedule. The only issue is that it's a different print than the 4554 one. Maybe that'll be another order someday. On the right, I added some ticket machines and a small table. Upstairs is a switch control area. I don't know what they are actually called, but basically the thing to replace switch towers. I have no idea if they're typically in train stations, but I thought the space was cool to use it as such. Here you can get an idea of how the two sections key into each other. I've found the big issue with not modifying the original set is that since there are no actual locking mechanisms in place, the building can have a split or gap in certain places where it is flush in others. However, this should go away with attaching both parts to a baseplate on an even surface. Here are some closer photos of the interior, both with the building open and closed. After this project was done, I decided that I wanted another station, so I built a tiny station to compliment the main station. As you can see on the platform, there is another train schedule that is different than the other 2! Oh well. Like I mentioned before, I finished my ideal workstation and organization recently, so I have been building all the time now. As of writing this, I also have built a small bridge and have started work on an engine shed to replace my original set that I took apart as a not smart kid, but I'll save those for another post. Thanks for looking!
  2. Metro Exodus - Aurora Steam Locomotive Hello to everyone, Metro Exodus, inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, is the first game to be fully established after the books, not between them or among them. Aurora is in the game, with the steam locomotive Lego design. The Aurora (Russian: Аврора) is a heavily modified steam locomotive, boarded by Artyom and Anna to find a new home far to the East in Metro Exodus. It serves as a mobile base for the player. Yermak is the Aurora's helmsman, while Miller serves as its crew's leader. The Aurora is a "duplex" locomotive, with two sets of driving wheels in what appears to be a 2-8-8-4 configuration, which means a forward pilot truck with two wheels, two sets of driving wheels with eight wheels each, and a rear trailing truck with four wheels. In Russian configuration, this would be a 1-4-4-2. The locomotive may be a heavily modified Russian P38 articulated locomotive which were the biggest and heaviest Soviet steam locomotives in existence. It might also be based on two Soviet IS20 locomotives (like IS20-317) combined into a single engine. Those were made from 1932 to 1942, and were used even all the way up until 1972. Most were scraped in the 1980's due to larger locomotives had taken there place on Soviet railroads. This is the first steam locomotive in the Metro series of games. The locomotive that was converted into the Aurora could have been taken from one of several Moscow's railway museums, where some steam locomotives are preserved in a fairly good shape, despite their age.

  3. Hi, At the recent Lego World 2013 in Copenhagen I displayed my model of Islands Brygge Metro Station including NXT controlled sliding platform doors. This model is the fourth in a line of trains with automatic sliding doors, that I have built over the last years (version 1, version 2, version 3). I have compiled a short video to show all the functionality including some "behind the scenes" footage: The NXT controls the following: Output 1: Running the train on the inner loop (9V) Output 2: Running the opening mechanism for the three sets of platform doors and three stes of train doors Output 3: Running the elevator Light sensor: Stopping the train at the platform (accuracy: 1 stud) Distance sensor: Detecting the lower position of the elevator (dynamically calibrating the elevator cycle) Touch sensor: Detecting the outer position of the opening mechanism (dynamically calibrating the cycle) In addition, there is a 9V metro train running on the outer loop and PF lights on the platform wall and over the platform door. Some images of the station, which was part of a bigger display of Islands Brygge, a central neighborhood in Copenhagen: After moderation, more pictures can be found here. The station is modelled very closely after my local metro station, though I have reduced the number of opening doors to three sets. Here are some reference pictures: I am looking forward to your comments. Esben

    RC MG Metro 6R4

    Hi! so, this is my first post on Eurobricks, I did actually make this model about a month ago, but I thought I might as well share it here too. MG Metro 6R4 by All.About.Lego, on Flickr So, here is a list of its functions: Front and rear independent suspension 4-wheel drive (RC) steering (RC) Working front and rear lights (RC) opening doors opening rear door/boot/bonnet (or whatever else you want to call it)... A detailed interior (with a roll-cage and seats) and loads of stickers... MG Metro 6R4 by All.About.Lego, on Flickr In total this model has 9 PF components: 2 L-motors, 2 pairs of lights, 1 servo motor, 2 AAA battery boxes, and 2 receivers/remotes. It was a bit of a struggle to cram all of them into such a small MOC, while still having independent suspension, and 4-wheel drive, but luckily I still managed to do it! This is the chassis I used for it: Lego Technic Compact 4-wheel drive chassis by All.About.Lego, on Flickr and of course, since I was doing the 6R4, I had no option but to make almost 40 stickers, just so I could recreate the iconic 'Computervision' livery which some of the 1980's group B rally cars had. MG Metro 6R4 by All.About.Lego, on Flickr that's pretty much everything, so I hope you like it, and any comments would be apprecited!

  5. This model was inspired by the Siemens SD-460 type light rail vehicles used by Metro Link in Saint Louis, Missouri. They are usually two sets used on every train, so just imagine a exact duplicate of the train above connected to the train you see. Basically it's four cars with only two walkways and four cabs, though only the outer two are ever used on the line. Also, the two cars with the inter-car connection are supposed to share a Jacobs bogie underneath the walkway. I didn't use one because it would cause problems storing the train in my boxes IF I decide to get it. the walkway. I didn't use one because it would cause problems storing the train in my boxes IF I decide to get it. The side of the model. The first set of pantographs on the far ends of the cars are used as ice cutters in cold weather (though they can be used in an emergency for power collection) , while the second, inner pair are actually used as the electric pickup points. This is not my map, I got it off Google. It is used by Metro Link on it's trains to show the stations used by the Light-Rail system. The Metro Bus routes are not shown, as their are too many routes to show on this type of map, though the metro buses usually use the routes of the old streetcars. The train is supposed to feature the "M" logo on it's front and rear ends, but their is no printing on the logo, which is a blue square with a red circle inside, which has a capital "M" in white located inside the red circle. (I used a black 1x1 plate because it stood out more.) Anyone wanting to read more about Metro Link and their plans for any future extensions and such should visit their wiki page here: https://en.wikipedia...ink_(St._Louis) EDIT: forgot to add the LDD file: http://www.moc-pages.com/user_images/80135/1453843587m.lxf

    MOC: Avenue Saint-Jacques

    Hi everyone. This is my latest build named Avenue Saint-Jacques. It is a Haussmann styled building which are found in central Paris in abundance. I have wanted to do a 'Cafe corner' in a grand scale for a long time! It's not a build based on any real building that I know of. Most of these buildings have diagonal corners which I could not perfect to the point of being happy with. Also typically most buildings are seven stories high, this is only 6 as I ran out of bricks! Its about 76cm to the top of the chimneys. Part of the reason it is not a typical modular which I have done before was the fact I wanted to make an 'Art Nouveau' style Metro station and had to raise the street level to make steps down to the platform and also since it is an avenue the pavement had to be wider. In all its taken a couple of months to complete. The most difficult part of the build was incorporating the hinge into the side of the building for easier access to the apartments. I probably have not accurately portrayed the interior details and fittings so most of it is made up! I felt the building would have been quite sad without any interior details. On the ground floor there is a Cafe with street facing kiosk for pastries on the go, a clothes shop selling fine ladies wear and finally the Metro station entrance. The first floor has an office and a dental surgery. The four upper floors have apartments, with a top floor penthouse with a full balcony. Some apartments have kitchens and bathrooms which I have tried to get decent photo's to see the details. A central staircase allows access to all the rooms. The whole scene is based sometime in the past, not quite sure when but before the comforts of technology! I have added several exterior and interior pics for now. All others can be found at the link at the bottom of the post. There are 22 rooms in all. More photo's can be found on my flick here: http://www.flickr.co...s/52656812@N04/ All thoughts welcome!
