  1. Polar Express Made!

    Hey Guys! So, I have made a Lego ideas Project based off of the Polar Express. The Polar I made and takes a lot of inspiration from the Lego city trains. Here's the link to the project page: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/150722 Fun Fact: Locomotive is Tender Driven, and houses 2 power functions train motors for extra power.
  2. Dear all, finally I can present you my new train: The idea started with the Arctice seaplane nose train. I thought now that we also have a dark blue one I can use that as one of the "hondekop" noses of the NS trains. But fiddling about a bit I found that the shape was actually a bit too short and that the longer aircraft nose would be much better suited. So I continued with that one. I must admit that I am not 100% satisfied with it. But I am happy with the pantographs and the couplers: The recessed doors are less well done. I should look into getting it less than half a brick. And further detailing is also limited. Partially by design I must say, but still. In the end I think the shape of the nose is correct lengthwise, only because it is 6 wide it looks a bit strange. An 8 wide version would be better scale wise. Also the new "other" 6 wide airplane nose has a better window configuration but the rounded roof doesn't fit in. Anyway, I still hope you like and if not please feel free to tell me. (more pictures on my brickshelf)
  3. The engines were Inspired by Facebook user Leonard Blevins' diesel engine, from which I built my own version. I think it looks like a Electro-Motive Division F40PH, which was (in real life) mainly built for Amtrak. Also, the letters BRS go on the side of the cab below the windows on the 3 exposed studs, while the number of the engine (8773 for example,) go on the 4 studs below the windows. Also, I know there is no such thing as a B unit for a F40PH. But since this is pretty much fictional already, I added one. I colored the engine the way it is to compliment set 60052: Cargo Train. As the engine in the set is freight, this one is passenger based. I even kept the windows the same light blue color, and yellow warning stripes on the cab end to compliment each other. Speaking of the cab, the roof is removable to place the engineer inside at the controls. This also increases play-ability. Here we see the F40PH's front. I added safety stripes because they looked nice, and I had some spares I thought would look nice there. The whole build was inspired by this piece from Leonard Blevins diesel: http://alpha.brickli...age?P=30022#T=C Here is the view inside the cab with the roof removed. (sorry for the blurry picture!) The B unit does not have a removable roof, or interior, for that matter. the rear of the engine features a walkway to the train. Here is the fancy sloped rear observation car of the express passenger train. The passenger cars are not yet ordered. LDD file for the engine by itself: http://www.mocpages.com/user_images/80135/1441300586m.lxf Well, what do you think? EDIT: added train cars, new engine and new ldd file. If a MOD could change the title to "F40PH diesels with express passenger train" it would be much appreciated. EDIT #2: change train color to blue and added new ldd file. EDIT #3: Added real life pictures!
  4. Train station

    I built this station almost a year ago for LUGs exhibition in March 2014, but I never got around to take pictures of it. It was exhibited at three national exhibitions (KockeFest 13, KockeFest 12, Kranj - SVM), and in between it was kept safe in a box. It survived my recent move at the end of the year, so before unpacking, sorting bricks and starting new projects, I finally took some photos. Back view of the building and the platforms. Top view reveals the size. Can anyone guess? It's a layout of 3x4 baseplates (32x32). The entrance to the building is partly covered with awning. The passenger train is a shorter version of this one. I took away the middle car, as it was too long. Also, I don't have enough tracks to extend the (four) platforms to the appropriate length for the train. I also don't have enough minifigs, so the station is not as busy as it could be. The platforms are numbered, so missing the platform is not a problem. There's also a timetable at the front of the platforms. You can catch the 11.23 train to Billund. More pictures, including some of those from the 2014 exhibitions, can be found in my Flickr stream.
  5. MOC Passenger Train

    Apart from enjoying train trips around Europe, I'm not much of a train fan. However, after buying the red passenger train, and recently Horizon Express, I started thinking about a challenge of creating my own train model. I'm more of a town girl, so a passenger train was my first choice. I started on the basic design in LDD, and than added more details while building it. The model is loosely based on the shape and color scheme of the SZ 713-715 Kanarcek (Canary). I used pictures from the link for inspiration, however, position of the doors and windows were tailored to the size of the train base. There are several color combinations, including a mostly red, green stripes, yellow/red stripes, and some in commercial designs. There's a IR receiver and a battery box included in the middle car, so it's a functional model. Altogether, there's room for 14 passengers. The first and the third cars are the same, and both have a driver's compartment. There's more pictures of the train from different angles at my FlickR.
