  1. Hi everyone! After a brief 'dark age' spanning a few years, I've now designed and built a new cargo train locomotive. I wanted something that exudes a sense of 'heavy industry' and initially created a prototype that didn't quite meet my expectations (see image bellow). This model takes inspiration from both the Lego Creator Maersk train, incorporating most of its general structure, and the Polish SM31 shunter locomotives. The locomotive showcases a sleek, black exterior accented with yellow and white details. Because of the primary color, I affectionately named it the "Coffin" locomotive, akin to the real-life SM31's nickname (Trumna). The locomotive closely resembles parts of the the distinctive SM31 train, and the cabin is designed for a minifigure operator, complete with a control panel. Additionally, it's equipped with Power Functions, including a battery box, a train motor, and an IR receiver. Before settling on the black color scheme, I explored various digital iterations, considering options like yellow, red, blue, and green. Ultimately, I chose black for its cost-effectiveness, leveraging parts I already owned.However, it did result in the photos having slightly lower quality due to the darkness of black. The digital model is readily available for download using Lego Studio: The prototype version, mostly based on an elongated version of the red cargo train 3677. Please take note: Although the digital model featured a light bluish-grey windscreen piece, I discovered that no such part exists in that color when I started building it. I sourced the piece from a custom vendor, and it's not an official Lego component. In the future, I plan to replace it with an original Lego piece in white, which is readily available.
  2. Just found this new video of a Polish Pm36-1 steam locomotive by Fasolic ( @solic ). I've not seen any coverage given to it, and it is a marvellous model, very much got LNER A4 vibes! Love the Dark Blue colour and the integration of full PF in the loco! Anyone know its history?
  3. Is there any way to remove any scratches or other blemishes to restore shine from any LEGO part by means of using a suitable polish for plastic? Usually when I find mixed parts in bags/boxes at thrift shops for instance, they usually have scratches as a result of being moved or shaken.
  4. Hi, I recently joined the Eurobrick and bought a 4564 used set. The overall condition was great but, windscreen was a bit foggy. I did some research and found that Pledge with Future shine is effective for polishing the transparent LEGO parts. But I was told that this product is no more available in UK but there is a Pledge Klear Multi-surface wax floor shine is on the market. Is there anyone who has tried this product? or is there any good material or similar product to polish the clear parts of Lego? Thank you!
  5. I've got some bricks and tiles that have been in my collection for a while and are starting to really show the wear and tear. I know there's a method of restoring the shine and transparency to old transparent bricks, but I'm curious about the traditional non-transparent pieces.. You know how when you open up a new set, and the tiles and bricks are smooth to the touch, and glossy, and are just pleasant to the touch overall? That's what I'd like to return my pieces to. My question, therefore, is: Is there a method of returning the glossy, smooth, 'new' feel to used bricks? (Let's assume the pieces in question have been cleaned of dust, etc. beforehand, and aren't covered in tooth marks or bent/dented corners.) In particular, tiles are notorious for this, as they have this large smooth surface that's just perfect for attracting the micro-scratches. I suspect at least some of the loss of 'new feel' comes from the oil in our fingers, so whatever method used would be temporary - but that's perfect for taking final pictures (you'd just have to wear gloves and be willing to put in that extra bit of time to keep your model nice for the photo shoot). Anyone got a method for this?
  6. Hi Everyone! I've been lurking around the forums for quite a while now, posting every now and again, but haven't really introduced myself. Well, I'm an AFOL currently studying for a Ph.D. in computer science and have been playing with lego since I was a small child. In my early teens my family could finally afford to get us some lego trains and I fell in love with them immediately. I currently live in the UK, but I spent most of my life in Canada and was born in Poland. I also studied in Poland, where I used to take the trains daily to my university. You can see where I'm going with this :) I love the old Polish locomotives that are still in use today, especially when they contrast against modern carriages. I've designed an EU07 locomotive in LDD and wanted to share it with everyone. I'd very much welcome any comments and criticisms - I'd like to make any changes to the designs before I actually order the bricks (although I'm still undecided whether to order the pieces for this locomotive or 2 Horizon Express sets). The end result with carriages that I'm going for is something like this: http://www.bahnbilde...-als-12231.html (I've always wanted double-decker cars!). The livery and exact model of the locomotive that I'm building, however, are based on this: Well, here's the locomotive, I hope you like it! It's my first real MOC and the first train I've ever built in 8-wide. Please don't mind the pantographs - I intend to cut the tubing down to size, which I unfortunately cannot do in LDD. I would also like to credit markervip from the LUGPol forums for the idea to make the front windshield! His original post (in Polish) is available here:

    The Papal Express

    The Papal Express by BMW_Indy, on Flickr To commemorate the April 27, 2014 canonization of Pope Saint John Paul II... a Lego version of a most unusual train. For so beloved was Pope John Paul II in his native Poland, that after his death in 2005 Polish railway workers donated this special train to commemorate their favorite son's legacy. It regularly carried pilgrims from Krakow to the Pope's birthplace in Wadowice and also travelled to Czechoslovakia and Hungary for special exhibitions. The train was built by the Newag company, seats 181 passengers, has handicap facilities, and has video monitors throughout the train which play a biography of Pope John Paul II. In addition to being a special piece of railroading and Papal history, this train represents the strong faith and pride of the Polish people. "Totus Tuus" was Pope John Paul II's apostolic motto: a Latin phrase meaning "totally yours" which expressed his personal consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary. This lego version of the Papal Express is made possible by a unique windscreen element: <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> which dictates the train be 6-wide. All proportions are scaled from there except the length which is shortened to permit navigation of tight Lego curves. The windscreen is covered with custom stickers to match Lego yellow, dark bley, and trans-black.
