i started designing a moc of the 1926 Orient Express, but i quickly noticed that if i work in minifigure scale (1:42) the train cars are going to be massive after some math i came to the result of 65x8 studs and a distance of 47 studs between the bogies, i think this is about double the length of any (long) official Lego Train wagon so i started wondering if this will work with the 9v and current rails and if it will look oversized compared to other train mocs so my question is: how long are your train cars, and what is the maximum length for them to get around the curves?
Well, here it is! My first train MOC that I've ever made, the Orient Express! Including a large Pacific class style locomotive similar to the Emerald Night, a tender, and a passenger car, I cobbled this together from several Bricklink orders and the LEGO Constitution Train Chase. ( I was very sad to take it apart, but it was for the greater good!) The passenger coach features opening doors, and I was able to put two lights into the roof, so it can light up at night! Here's the official story on this MOC: -Oh no! There's a Mummy on the Orient Express! Join dashing, adventurous Arthur Rutledge as he travels across Europe with several priceless artifacts to be delivered to the Louvre Museum in Paris. But be careful, his evil nemesis Cad Goldwater is also aboard, and will stop at nothing to acquire the relics. Will Rutledge be successful, or will the Orient Express be stopped by the nefarious plans of Cad? It's up to you!
