  1. MODification of one of my favorite sets, 10027 Train Engine Shed. Probably designed 6 years ago and only slightly upgraded since Building instructions at snakebyte.dk Very high setting render from Stud.io
  2. Here's my newest creation, digital format for now but I'll build it next month when I return from vacation. It's a whopping 7200 bricks not counting the landscape. Thanks to @PeterPNL for the landscape and minifigs and thanks to @maciej_drwiega for the door and window inspiration. Here's the .lxf if anyone wants it. https://bricksafe.com/pages/sed6 Hope you like!

  4. This railway shed was inspired by Shaun Baseby (or @lightningtiger here on Eurobricks) and his smaller farm shed from 2014. He designed the basic Technic frame on this shed, and I ran with it to create this wooden western-style steam locomotive shed. This shed is 4 1/4 tracks long with a total of 68 studs from back wall to entrance to the building, along with a 10 stud wide entrance for stream locomotives. The shed features a cow skull on the front above the entrance, just to give it that wild west flair. The rear wall of the shed. The roof of the shed is not removable, but it can fold open a bit on clips. With this view you can see how the Technic frame supports the roof. Here is the scene with the three steam locos stationed at the Fort Legoredo area depot The shed will normally hold my 4-6-0 and 4-4-0 steam locomotives, with the smaller 4-2-4 sitting on a third track outside the shed as shown. That's the BTTF time train on the fourth track, in the way back. Comments, Suggestions and Complaints are always welcome!
  5. The right forklift for every circumstance. My latest build has been commissioned by a german leading pallet truck and forklift manufacturer. I've built the entire line up of its truck range plus three different warehouse scenarios: unload/upload, storage and picking scene. Every scene is fitted with the right forklifts. The three different subjects are the advertising campaign of the company and in these days my work is featured on many logistic and transportation specialized magazines. It's been very challenging and even funny building all the pallet trucks and forklifts and the company has been really satisfied by the work. Below few photos. Unload/upload: Storage: The entire line-up in all its glory : More info and pics on my flickr. Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas to all of you Eurobrickers!
  6. "Barn Find" As a petrolhead I've always dreamed about finding a classic car hidden for years in an old barn or shed. And that is what is called "Barn find". My latest build showcases two car-hunters discovering a classic Bugatti Type 35 Grand Prix in a barn. Close to the blue machine you can see the old farmer with his dog showing the treasure, even if he doesn't know its real value. And the french beauty looks really in shape. The Bugatti Type 35 was the most successful of the Bugatti racing models, the famous "pur sang". Introduced at the Grand Prix of Lyon on August 3, 1924 the Type 35 was phenomenally successful, winning over 1,000 races in its time. A few days ago a 1925 model has been sold for over €1.4 million at the Artcurial auction in Paris. Thanks for stopping by. More pics and info: flickr
  7. I decided to modify some parts of the Goblin Village set and to add my own structures to make the playset feel much bigger
  8. The shed is based off set 60103 (Airport Air Show) and has now been updated (3/4/16) to have a bigger, stronger roof with less gaps. I also removed the inner platform as it wasn't my best work and didn't look right. This construct is a 74 studs long x 32 studs wide locomotive shed. (that's the actual shed coverage, not the track itself: the track is 80 studs long alone) For those of you who like math, or would want to build this yourself, the size of the shed + track in more conventional measurements is 25 inches or 63.5 centimeters long and 10 inches / 25.4 centimeters wide. I don't know the height, but it is the same height as my new black-and-red shed design and my older World City building. By the way: baseplates were not added for two reasons: 1) the model is slightly off at some point and does fit in real life, but not digitally. (you will either need a 32 x 80 stud baseplate, or a combination of smaller baseplates.) 2) Baseplates keep crashing the model file for some reason. The shed is 11 bricks tall at it's lowest point, and 15 bricks tall in the center. The side view of the model. The shed can accommodate 8 wide trains with ease and is extendable to be as long or as short as you need it. Here we see my Southern Pacific GS-6 "Daylight" 4460 and a 4-8-2 mountain type locos with the shed to give you a sense of scale. These are the longest locomotives (not including two unit diesels) I own, and they fit with room to spare. Please note: The engine's are NOT included in the shed's digital file! And here it is in real life to help you figure the size of the shed. LDD file for the shed ONLY: http://www.moc-pages.com/user_images/80135/1457118933m.lxf (If you are interested in the steam loco and want to know more / have the LDD file, please look here: http://www.eurobrick...topic=118894 ) Comments, questions, and complaints welcome!
  9. We're about to decorate our new house and have a 'spare room' Approx 2m x 3m. It needs to fit a sofa bed for guests as well as being both a craft/ hobby room and a lego room. So... any Ideas for using the space please? Show me how you store your lego, especially multi functional space. There's a doorway on the short wall and a window/radiator in the middle of a long wall opposite the door. Would be great to get some photos for ideas and inspiration! Thanks in advance

    Lego Simpsons scenes (multiple MOCs)

    Hi, On hearing about the release of the Simpsons mini-figures a few months back, we set to work creating a series of scenes. Now we have all the figures, I'm releasing videos of each scene over the next few weeks. Some are 16x16 baseplate scenes based on a Simpsons episodes and some are 6x6 plates to show off a custom Simpsons mini-figure we've created. This has been a fairly large task, so I hope you like what we've been working on. Please comment if you like them. Silence may be golden, but its depressing after putting so much effort into something. This is the first video: Thanks for watching, Mike
  11. This railway shed was inspired by Shaun Baseby. (alias: Lightningtiger or "LT") He designed the basic frame on this shed with one of his town buildings, and I ran with it. The platform in the center is low enough 8 wide trains can drive by, but only barely. This model was inspired by the Roberts Building at the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, Missouri... now all it needs is a clock tower in the center! side view. The model itself is 5 tracks long, but sits on a 32 x 96 stud base-plate (that's three 32 x 32's put together) This photo shows how tall the shed is. That's the Southern Pacific 4-8-4 Daylight number 4460 & my Brick Railway Systems 2-10-4 "Texas" number 6297 in there. The engines are also my longest to date, and they fit inside with room to spare. (The Daylight and / or Texas type are NOT included in the LDD file, by the way) And yes,set set 10014 Caboose can fit under this as well. LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1427740513m.lxf Comments welcome!
  12. This shed was first built around 2005 by my father as a present to me. It was originally three tracks long, with no side workshop, until I was about to order parts to increase it's length to four tracks. I suddenly decided that while I was at it, it should probably have a removable roof. It kinda snowballed from there into this design seen here. I added a workshop (with it's own removable roof) to the left side of the model. I then took the main section's roof off and made it detachable. The building is 100% build-able, but there is a catch: (Purists look away now!) I'm going to cut a 12 x 24 stud section of an already butchered 48 x 48 baseplate (It's currently in a 12 x 48 size strip, with thre rest being used on my father's own train shed) and replace the hodgepodge of baseplates seen in the picture. Basically, I'm keeping a 32 x 16 and two 16 x 16's for the main shed with the custom plate for the side work-area. The inside will be taken up by my dark green 2-6-0 "Mogul"-type steam locomotive number 4613. The workshop features tools from set 10027: (2003's Train Shed) a metal lathe, drill press and tool drawers, plus a coffee machine. The rear of the model. I only need to buy about 50% of the bricks. There are 833 total bricks in my new model minus the 418 in the original (unmodified) model, so 415 bricks to buy. (Those 3x4 roof slopes are going to be expensive!) My father built his original gray and black Water Tower way back in the 1990's, back when 9V was king. He made me my water tower in 2007, but I later realized that it needed a companion coaling tower. I made my first attempt at a much larger size than this using pictures from LGauge.com, a website of older Lego train models. Rear view of the refueling towers. I have these two models on my desk as we speak. (The coal tower was built in mid-December 2014.) Here is the LDD file for the shed + workshop: http://www.mocpages.com/user_images/80135/1424113318m.lxf And here is the LDD file for the coal + water towers: http://www.mocpages....1412536438m.lxf
  13. This thread goes along with my earlier one about Brick Railway Systems locos & Rolling Stock (see it here: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=93584 ) Locomotive sheds & facilities: Open sided 6-long shed: This railway shed was inspired by Lightningtiger here on Eurobricks. He designed the basic frame on this shed, and I ran with it. This photo shows how tall the shed is. That's the Southern Pacific Daylight #4460 there, it's my tallest locomotive and it clears with plenty of room to spare. (The Daylight is NOT included in the LDD file, by the way) Side view. Builders Notes: I chose the dark red parts because the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis Missouri owns one of these types of sheds in this color. They also own the 4460, so the choice was obvious... plus it was the cheapest 8x16 tile color available in the needed quantity in the entire United States. LDD fie for the Open sided 6-long shed: http://www.mocpages....1395947515m.lxf Closed sided 6-Long shed (World City style) This modular railway shed was based off set #10027, Train Shed from the 2003 theme of World City. This model features three 32x32 stud sections and 12 removable roof segments. Here we see my MOD of Anthony Sava's 2-8-4 Berkshire (top) side-by-side with my MOD of JD Davis' 4-8-4 Daylight. (bottom) They both fit, but just barely. Builder's Notes: This shed was built to resemble the 2003 set, Train Engine Shed (#10027). I made it longer by 4 tracks, and widened both stalls by 1 stud on each side. (This makes it so 8 wide trains can fit) I added a middle section, threw out the old hinge-open plan, and replaced it with 3 part modular sections. (left side, middle, and right side)The shed is capable of holding Anthony Sava's 2-8-4 Berkshire steam engine, and JD Davis' 4-8-4 Daylight side-by-side and could probably fit other engines longer than that, especially since you can build multiple middle sections. LDD file for the Closed sided 6-Long shed (World City style) : http://www.mocpages....1396033333m.lxf Locomotive Coaling Tower This is a typical steam locomotive coaling tower. It features brace-work on the legs, and a hinged flap where imaginary lumps of coal can dump to an engine waiting below. Builder's Notes: I got the idea for this model from the LEGO trains website called LGauge. No, it was not from any instructions, and I had to improvise on some parts of the model. (IE the legs' bracework!) The coaling tower with the my MOD of Sava's 2-8-4 Berkshire engine below. (for scale) The engine is NOT in the LDD file found in the first pic! The first of the seven pictures I used to build this model from LGauge.(Link to LGauge website: http://www.lgauge.com/ ) LDD file for the coaling tower: http://www.mocpages....1396009461m.lxf Coaling Tower V2 & Water Tower Builders Notes: With regards to the coal tower, I was inspired by the website "LGauge". However, unlike my previous version of said tower (seen on another creation), I have removed the fancy bracework and replaced it with simple 1x10 beams. For the water tower, however, I was inspired by my Fathers work with a smaller version of the same idea. I enlarged the basic dimensions and replaced the flat roof with a more suitable sloped one of the same type as the coal tower. LDD link: http://www.mocpages....1396273780m.lxf Railroad Structures: Switch Tower (World City Style) This is a Switch Tower designed to be compatible with the 2003 set #10027, (Train Shed) or my MOC of that style. (see above for the Closed sided 6-Long shed (World City style) I am talking about) Here is the top floor, accessible by the staircase from the outside as seen in the main picture. This floor features a main computer, used for switching and train location. This is the bottom floor, where tools are stored. It can be reached by a door under the stairs / landing. Builder's Notes: This building is 100% build-able, and features no really expensive parts. (as far a I know) The model is made to compliment my XL World City train shed, which I actually own as of April 2013. LDD file for the Switch Tower (World City Style): http://www.mocpages....1396032491m.lxf BRS Signal Bridges (double and single tracks) Here we have two signal bridges, one double track, and one single track. Single Track Double track Builder's Notes: I got the instructions for these models from a website known as LGauge, which is an older LEGO train MOC site, and modified them to suit my tastes and cheaper Bricklink pricing. LDD file for the BRS Signal Bridges (double and single tracks): http://www.mocpages....1395966918m.lxf Modular Tunnels (double and single tracks) My father's tunnels' with a update. Back in 1999 - 2005, my father kinda went on a LEGO building spree. He built the original single track tunnel, a red / white shed (later expanded to double track), a bridge using 6552's river base-plate, a Factory, and an unfinished grain elevator. i am remaking them all to show to the world via Flickr & MOC Pages. The real models have been in my fathers basement since they were built. Anyway, I recreated his tunnel, took off the 32x32 green base-plate, made them modular, and made a double track version to boot. The double track version. Single tracked version. One possible combination of the two types of tunnel. If the tunnels is placed near a curve, two tracks should be placed in front of the tunnels just to make sure trains have overhang / turning room. In theory, this should hive enough time for a larger locomotive (like my Berkshire) to straighten out. LDD file for the modular tunnels: http://www.mocpages....1343930750m.lxf Railway Girder Bridge Built from my own imagination and an old file, but inspired by my Father's bridge from 1999. Double tracking is easy with this bridge! LDD file for the Railway Girder Bridge: http://www.mocpages....1396111989m.lxf Grain Elevator This Grain Elevator features a conveyor belt to transfer "corn" (round yellow studs) to the waiting rail cars. Based on my Father's design from 2001, but with a conveyor belt, more silos (is that the right word?), and less fancy arches. I also constructed this out of white and red instead of old grey and red. Top view, showcasing my brother's conveyor belt idea. LDD file for the Grain elevator: http://www.mocpages....1396114565m.lxf Factory Originally built in Sand Red by my father in 2004-ish, this building is one of my dad's biggest creations. I modified it and brought it up to my specifications... okay, I whinged it from looking at the model. I took some liberties, (& made some mistakes) with the original model. For example: the first version had a smaller smokestack, (diameter wise) and had a different Railroad loading dock. (His dock was made from the 1990's 16 x 16 old dark grey sections, with two slopes and 4 middle sections.) Anyway, I hoped it would be of some use for some people, as it always has been gathering dust in the basement since it was built. This end of the factory has a ladder to the top of the smokestack. Inside view with the removable roof to the side. Dad never finished this part, and probably never will. As to what it is supposed to produce... that's up to your imagination! LDD file for the Factory: http://www.mocpages....1396116396m.lxf Barrett's Station This station was built between the East & West Barrett's Tunnels in 1893 by the Missouri Pacific Railroad. It was used until 1944, when the war-time traffic became too much,and the two single track tunnels were bypassed by a double track cut-through built right next door. The Station and the West tunnel were preserved, while the East tunnel was covered up and buried under a road, which was eventually named Barrett's Station Road. The site of the station was turned into a museum known as the Museum of Transportation. Builder's notes: This station was originally the Toy Shop from the Winter Village series of LEGO sets. In real life, the story I just told you is 100% true. However, the Barret's station was not made in 1893, and looks nothing like the one seen here. The inspiration for the station came from the real-life Kirkwood Station (seen here: http://en.wikipedia....Amtrak_station) ) which was built in 1893, is still used by Amtrak and is located a short distance up the track from the Museum of Transportation. The rear of the station features inside seating, a old-fashioned cash register (This piece: http://www.bricklink....asp?P=3039pb26 ) and a modern train signal computer (with this part: http://www.bricklink....asp?P=3297px22 ) where the telegraph used to be. LDD file for Barrett's station: http://www.mocpages....1396901621m.lxf Grain Elevator (fancy) Built originally by my father in 1999, this elevator was never completed. As my Dad did not discover Bricklink until 2006, it lacked several crucial parts, and remains uncompleted to this day... just another thing on the to-do list! I also did some major goofs, such as making the building one stud too thin, (it should be 16 studs wide at the base), but I hope I compensated enough by making the funnel tall enough to let the tallest official train car I could think of go through without problems. (That car is http://www.bricklink...m.asp?S=10014-1 ) I have faithfully recreated the elevator and added some parts that did not exist in '99, such as the red windscreens used a funnel, and a conveyor belt with handle. LDD file for the Fancy Grain Elevator: http://www.mocpages....1398708090m.lxf Glencoe Switch Tower I was inspired to build this Glencoe Switch Tower by set number 60009 (Helicopter Arrest) and a number of old signal towers in my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. In the real world the town of Glencoe is the location of the Wabash Frisco & Pacific Railroad. ( Link to their homepage: http://www.wfprr.com/ ) This 12 inch gauge railway runs for a mile on an old Missouri Pacific roadbed that was once (not anymore) connected to Barrett's Station, along with several other stations. They have several steam locos, and some blue white and tan train cars which I am replicating in LEGO. However, this building is not based on any one prototype at Glencoe or elsewhere, but numerous switch towers all over the St. Louis area. The first floor features an old telegraph desk, which was used to contact stations further down the line until the telephone and eventually the computer replaced it. The top of the tower has two signal computers and a cozy fireplace. LDD file for Glencoe switch Tower: http://www.mocpages....1399834102m.lxf American level crossing (double track) Inspired by fellow Eurobricks builder Lightningtiger's level crossing, especially his design for the cross-buck. (the X thing that usually says RAILROAD CROSSING) I personally really like the use of frying pans for the lights. Here is his pic of the crossing that inspired me: LDD file for my version of the crossing: http://www.mocpages.com/user_images/80135/1400524694m.lxf Glencoe Depot Built in 1912 for Brick Railway Systems in the small town of Glencoe, Missouri, this Depot features a wood burning fireplace and a ground level platform with four benches. Inside view showcasing the four seats (3 benches, 1 chair) fireplace, and cash register. Their is also a trashcan next to the street side door, but it is hidden from view in this shot. This station model was originally built from Brick City Depot instructions, and modified by me. The LDD file will NOT be given out. Comments, Questions & complaints welcome!

    Turntable and shed

    The last months I've been working on a new project. A turntable and a shed. The turntable is powered by a PF-M motor. All the PF is inside the turntable itself. Here are some images of the process, I'll post more images when I'm further in the process. Here is a video showing the first functional test of the turntable:
