  1. The model seen here is originally based upon the Brick City Depot "Winter Village Train Station". I have modified it enough from the original model to upload the LDD file for my version, which is available below. The following is a fictional backstory on Barretts station. (Their is a real Barretts station, but it looks nothing like this an is not as old as my model is supposed to be. That station's history is nothing like this one!) This station was built in 1912 in Barretts, Missouri for use by Brick Railway Systems. It stands on the old Pacific Railway of Missouri right-of-way, which first ran through the area in the mid-1850's. The station is a wooden structure with a stone fireplace, indoor waiting area, and a freight storage room that was added to the station in 1928. The upper floor is for the telegraph operator, which as of 1997 the telegraph has been replaced with a computer for the dispatcher to locate any train in his sector at any time using Global Positioning Satellites. (also known as GPS) Here is the street side. EDIT 2/24/17: added new ADA -compliant parts to the section of the model... see below for details: The upper floor has the computer for the dispatcher. In true Lego City style, their are no stairs to the top floor. This is the lower floor, with a waiting room, and ticket seller. The freight storage room off to the right was added later, and connects the station via a hole cut into the wall. Two sliding doors allow for cargo to be loaded onto the platform side, or out the street side for loading onto a truck. Here is the modular side of things: One left and one right platform, the station proper, the control room and it's roof are all connected by either pins or a very few studs. The original model I based this off off is seen here, while my version's LDD file can be found at this link. This model should be built to replace my 7997-style train station later this year. As usual, comments questions, and complaints are always welcome! EDITED 2/20/17: Updated the screenshots into real-life pictures.

    MOC Rural timbered house

    My latest MOC is part of community winter-themed build. The goal was to brickbuild houses from Faller's catalog (or mimick their style for a unified look of village houses). I chose this house specifically for the timbered look. I found it attractive with the angled timbers, but had many diffuculties building it. In the end, I made some compromises, mostly due to easier transport and setup at the exhibition. The floor plan is 40 x 26 studs with the entrance sticking out a bit. The height of the building is 23 bricks. It is large for a minifig scale, but it was not possible to include all the hallmarks of the original. So just imagine the rooms inside with multiple beddings for hikers and climbers somewhere high in the Alps (there's no interiors, so let your imagination go wild). The original model has a much more detailed entrance. I intentionally built just a small porch, with steps covered with snow on the edges. The back and the sides of the building are similar with the repeating pattern. Since it's a winter-themed build, there's snow on the roof and window sills are empty. The flowers will be planted in the spring. My favourite detail are the horns just bellow the roof. It's not so clearly visible on the photos. Considering the size of the buildings, I am satisfied with how it turned out. There's definitely many shortages, such as the angled timbers (secured on the back with tape), a bit wobbly roof on Technic base (not an expert, so it's not as sturdy as it should be). I wanted it light and easy to transfer, so I awoided thicker walls to secure the angled tiles. However, I'm sure it will survive the transport to the exhibition.

    MOC - Warehouse Style Hardware Store

    Now for my latest hardware store and this one beats all my others hands down. "rt' stands for Rural Traders, a boring name so I call it "rt" The huge glass frontage allows everyone to see all the detailing, and yes it has a roof - a rare thing to come from my drawing board. The pump display gets another outing, but the racking is all new plus the hardware and irrigation merchandisers are also new. The chain saw display contains a fresh saw design - more realistic offset chain drive than the inline city style chain saws. On display also is a red ATV with roll-cage and chunky balloon tyres. Both the chain saw and ATV branding comes under the CITY banner. The irrigation brand is called Rain Brick, based on the real life brand Rain Bird. Garmadon is the brand for fencing and gate hardware, it's real life brand is Gallagher fencing products. Yes, I know and that's why I dropped the Lord bit off Garmadon ;) The chemical department has two products on display in bulk, Muster herbicide (weed killer) based on the brand name Round Up and Brick Chemicals Terrashield soil insecticide based on a Bayor product called Confidor Guard. You can see it's one of my largest builds in a long time, even bigger than my last modular in both build and detailing. Feel free to comment, oh yeah it will hopefully be up on Lego Ideas soon fingers crossed. Thanks for reading everyone and Brick On !
