    [MOC] Lego DB V60 - in 12v style

    Hi all, after seeing the beautiful V60 created by @Asper, I realized that I've never tried to represent it (I started with the V80 and V100). Being the iconic 7760 historically identified a s a V60, I did not pay too much attention to that specific group of locomotives. But it's a nice shunter and has a pretty complex shape, so I wondered if it could be possible to replicate it in 12v-style. The result is pretty similar to the 7760 and to the red little locomotive shown near the car-loader in 7777 book. The front hood starts in 4 wide, then becomes 5-wide to return again to 4-wide. The rear part of the cabin is 5-wide and features low doors (standard train doors were too big). 2x1x2 blue windows are going all around the cabin (no absurdly expensive 3x1x2 windows needed!) I did not mean to make it too complicated, but at least representing the enlarging/restricting body was mandatory to make it different from the 7760. Paint scheme and the headlights were made to elaborate a bit the front and rear parts. Some handrails made with bars could have been nice, but were not existing as parts at the time. I made also the red version with yellow stripes - just to see how it was like. The more I look at it the more I think also the V100 needs some restyling, now! That's all for the moment! Ciao! Davide
  2. Hi Everyone! I'm used to orange, and the first time I saw this color scheme it hurt my feelings, but after saw a couple more times I kinda dig it this Bee Painted. This only digital for now...

  3. Hello, The DB class V60 was built more than 900 times in the 1950/60s and still can be seen on German rails.It's not the first LEGO model of this shunter, and I know many of them, so maybe some things look familiar. I wanted a smaller locomotive for the limited size of the average LEGO train layouts, and in Germany this engine is very popular so I decided to build my own. 3D printed coupling rod are from bricks-on-rails.de and there are some stickers - everything else is LEGO. It's powered by a "WeDo 2.0 Medium" (bricklink name) motor. It took me a while to work out the small offset for the "sliding hood" (?) - it coveres a PU hub, so there is not much space for snotting. Puling a small train:
  4. Hey everyone, am back with my latest MOC of the Malayan Railway 15 Class Shunter. Built in 1948 by English Electric at the Vulcan Foundry, the 15 Class has many characteristics of similar machines being designed and built in the UK such as BR08 shunter. The 15 Class shunter was Malayan Railway's (KTMB) first diesel locomotive used specifically for shunting freight and passenger coaches. The LEGO 15 Class shunter is 8-studs wide and runs on the TrixBrix 4-wide tracks to match the narrow gauge scale of the real life locomotive. The model is powered by 1x L motor and controlled by the standard Power Function IR. As for batteries, the model uses an adapter to connect the rectangular batteries to the IR because the standard LEGO PF battery box does not fit in there. The shunter runs on Big Ben Bricks Medium sized wheels. Coupling rods and front ladder are from TrainedBricks. The front section was especially tough to replicate as it is sloping ever so gently towards the front and the sides. Also, this is one of my entries for the Brick Train Awards 2021 for the 'Best Other LEGO Locomotive'. Here's a video of the 15 Class shunting at 'shunter' speed.
  5. So, this mod started with me wanting to rebrick the 7760 Diesel Shunter. The plan was to replace the expensive parts with similar cheaper ones. After doing so i wasn´t really happy with the frankenstein-like 9V - 12V mix i had created, so I decided to redo it and mod the Engine with modern parts.

  6. Presenting another of my Danish State Railways’ (DSB) locomotives - redesigned from 7-wide to 8-wide and digitally rendered but already built and tested DSB Litra MK The Danish State Railways (DSB) first radio control shunter Litra MK was built by Siemens/Vossloh in Germany as type VSFT G322. 25 were built from 1996 to 1998. All but one shunter were transferred to DSB subsidiary Railion in 2001 and DB Schenker Rail in 2007. My model: The DSB Gods version. Scale: 1:45 Length: 27 studs from buffer to buffer Width: 8 studs Bricks: 578 Powered: 1 x 9v battery, 1 x PF custom adapter, 1 x M-motor & 1 x SBrick. Gear ratio: 1:1 Designed: 2020 (third version - the first (6-wide) in 2012 and the second (7-wide) in 2014) All renders are done on the very high setting in Stud.io with all of my own custom decals added in the PartDesigner tool. Rear with the hidden SBrick inside: Removable hood for easy placement of the 9v battery inside - probably a 800 mAh rechargeable Li-Po one: The mechanical power transmission technique with 1:1 gearing: My earlier 7-wide version was rather fragile (and prone to implosions when handled the wrong way) but this time around the construction is pretty solid and the mechanical power transmission much better with surprising pulling capability. Long live 8-wide
  7. Presenting a Dutch version of my DSB Litra MK NedTrain Vossloh G 400 B All renders are done on the very high setting in Stud.io with all of my own custom decals added in the PartDesigner tool. The railing can only be made in Dark Green using BlueBrixx parts for now. Change all Dark Green to Dark Turquoise and the railing can be made using genuine LEGO parts. Left shunter: Central coupling arm on without any wagons. Right shunter: Central coupling arm replaced with a coupling magnet when pulling or pusing wagons. Interior with placement of the SBrick, M-motor and 9v battery: Thanks to UrbanErwin for giving me this idea

    7760-inspired PF Shunter

    I've always enjoyed the off-centre-cab shape of the classic 7760, so no sooner had I bodged my own PF-9V battery connector then I started to build one. There ended up being very little in common with the original set other than the overall body/cab shape, but anyway. The colour scheme was dictated by A: my existing parts collection, because I'm a student and don't like buying things, and B: an attempt at what this loco would look like if the British Rail Civil Engineers had used one. I quite like using this grey-yellow-black livery on locomotives, because the black around the windows and doors make them stand out against the bodywork. The handrails either side of the cab don't really make sense, but the only LBG 1x1s I had available are either horizontal clips or headlight bricks, so I put them there anyway. The cab is actually fairly open inside, but there isn't really an interior unless you count lots of wires... The front bonnet ended up held in place by gravity and friction rather than stud connections; this makes it very easy to open in order to detach the battery from the connector, which is the only way to turn the model off! With the cab removed as well, we can see there really is just a big bundle of cables in there. The receiver is only half poking out into the rear bonnet, but signal reception is still fine. In building this model I stole plenty of parts from my 20T Brake Van (and yet still didn't have enough LBG 1x1 & 1x2 bricks, hence why the cab sides are so messy). This meant it needed rebuilding, and I'm actually happier with it now - it's lost the handrails, but the yellow banding is a lot more consistent around the ends. Finally, the loco with its short works train of a bogie flat, a general purpose crane and the brake van. And, as ever, the Bricksafe folder containing the photos and LDD file can be found here: https://bricksafe.com/pages/Collet22/7760-inspired-shunter. Thank you for reading; what do you think?

    9V Shunter

    This little British-style tank engine is built around an old 9v train motor. I've had this model up on Flickr for some time, but just got around to posting it here. It's unfortunate that the 9v motor doesn't accommodate moving rods, but I can always pretend the engine has its brakes constantly applied to control those troublesome trucks! Thanks for looking! Soli Deo Gloria

    [MOC] No. 111

    No. 111 is a small 0-4-0 saddle tank locomotive on display at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, NC. It was built by Alco in the 1920s and ended up moving coal around power plants before it was retired. IMG_0226 by the chestertonian, on Flickr I recently downloaded Studio 2.0 and thought this engine would make for a good experiment as my first project in the new program. I really like how it allows you to use custom parts like BBB wheels and shows the prices for each part. This 8-wide model would cost a little over $100 to build - not counting the BBB drivers! I was also surprised to see that the built-in POV-Ray rendering options are much faster than the settings I have used before. The Studio file is available here. Thanks for looking! 0-4-0ST-1 by the chestertonian, on Flickr 0-4-0ST-2 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Soli Deo Gloria

    LEGO Gmbh Spielwaren Köf

    Well, my turn to present this lovely shunter even though the MOC was designed in 2012 and is based on my DSB Køf already shown here LEGO Gmbh Spielwaren Köf Deutche Bundesbahns legendary shunter köf was built in 1950 by Deutz, and bought in 1987 by LEGO Gmbh Spielwaren in Hohenwestedt, Slesvig-Holsten, where the shunter moved cargo between warehouses in an old industrial area until sold in 2002. My model: Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 17 bricks Width: 8 bricks Bricks: 268 Powered: 1 x 9v motor or PF motor with the old 9v battery box using the PF to 9v extension wire Designed: 2012 First, a high-quality rendering by LDD to Pov-Ray using custom decorations and some manual editing: The stickers are downscaled versions of the official LEGO ones but homemade from then on. The IR receiver can be reached easily from the section behind but the receiver, the 9v battery box and all the wires demand optimal utilization of the tight space inside, especially some of the empty space above the train motor: Photo from Klodsfest 2013, our yearly Danish LUG event.
  12. I've always desired a small engine to run on my small door layout. Lots of looking here and elsewhere online provided plenty of inspiration. My three main goals were a) make it powered by PF b) make it similar to something that exists IRL and c) make it tiny! I've seen some small switchers but mine might be the shortest at just 14 studs long and 6 studs wide. I even managed to squeeze in a minifig (well, 1/2 a minifig). The gray plate on top serves as an on/off switch, though a curved side piece needs to be removed to see the light. Designing it was a bit of a challenge, and ultimately I took two potentially controversial shortcuts. This one took only about 5-6 hours to design in LDD. It contains about 175 pieces and cost about $80 US to build with pieces from BL including the PF parts. Below I've included lots of pics and a link to a quick video of it running. It looks right at home on my layout and does a good job moving cars around, especially considering it's very light weight EDIT: Here's a link to my LDD file so you can make, modify, copy or inspect my design. https://bricksafe.com/pages/sed6/switcher-shunter-engine Hope you like!
  13. Presenting another Danish shunter...DSB Litra MH 322 History: The Danish State Railways (DSB) diesel shunter Litra MH were built in great numbers by Frichs in Denmark from the year 1960 to 1965. In all 120 shunters were built to replace the steam shunters still being used. The shunters were repainted in the 80's to black and red from the original dark green. The last shunter was decommissioned in 2001. ©Hans Stückler My model: Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 455 Motortype: PF Model built: 2012-14 The stickers are homemade with self-adhesive labels printed by a copy shop and then cut by myself to fit. The upper part is primarily constructed with plates and tiles, in general only a few standard bricks are used in the construction. The model is run by PF and requires one 9v battery connected by custom adapter to the Power Functions M-Motor. Pull and speed are acceptable. The shunter pulling a white Litra Gs wagon.
  14. This is a Lego BR class 08 diesel shunter I built over the period of three days. It's built off of a train base design I made awhile back that uses the PF train motor with a third wheel set attached to the motor. Here's the train base with the cabin and front removed. The front detaches easily allowing easy access to the battery. And finally here's the motor base itself. (Note) It's important that the third wheel set be assembled by cutting a length of flexible 318 tubing (my digital caliber says 1.35 inches long), slipping it over the metal train axle, slip on two 1x2 technic bricks with stud pins in them, and finally attach the train wheels. This assembly removes any free play which allows the train to enter switches without derailing. Thanks for looking! Comments and opinions are always appreciated! Cheers LMF

    FS 207 - Badoni / Breuer type IV

    Hi all, I'd like to present you something I did two years ago, and that I continue to improve. It is a small workhorse very popular here in Italy. Probably it is known in Europe as Breuer Type IV, here in Italy it was produced under Breuer license from a workshop in Lecco, the "Antonio Badoni Lecco" or simply ABL. This apparently small company built the Ataturk bridge in Istanbul and part of the Milan Central station, plus a lot of other surprisingly complex infrastructures. Therefore the locomotive section began with this kind of licensed product. A small shunter, which was broadly used in nearly all Italian railway stations, and got the Italian nickname of "sogliola" ("sole"), due to its flattened cabin. I sincerely love this little thing (and all other ABL shunters), since I saw it in an old station, left abandoned on a dead track. FS marked these small locomotives as 207/208 and there was a bigger version too (210/211). I represented the last version of the ABL Type IV, with normal puffers and standard headlights. The real one has a chain on one side which drives the small wheels. I chose a central masked wheel (made with vintage slick tyres). A 9v red micro-motor powers the two central wheels. It is 9-wide, and scale is not particularly accurate. Maybe some suggestions can help me to correct its proportions. It is slow as it should be and not very powerful, but it can shunt properly. It cannot host batteries inside, so it needs a battery box on a pulled car, or a dummy car with an empty 9v motor to pick-up electricity from track. I hope you like this little thing!
  16. I made a small Diesel Shunter in LDD, and it looks good! Front view Back view Side View Cab view. Now why don't Lego do sets like this?
  17. Hi guys, having just recently resurfaced from my dark ages, I got set 60098 some time ago and built up a small layout (which, at the moment, merely occupies my desk and isn't even a full loop). In desperate need of a small shunting locomotive I additionally got set 3677 with the idea of shortening the locomotive. My first idea was to build a 3-axle loco, but I soon found out that the proportions would look strange if I didnt want to shorten it even further. So, in the end I decided on a 4-axle construction on 2 bogeys (just like the original 3677 loco). Some pieces are missing, so this is still a work in progress. The preliminary result looks like this: Hope you like it, quarren
  18. DkGreen Shunter 7w. Design has borrowed some genes from a BR Class 04 locomotive, but mostly what I found pleasing for the eye. It has a DkRed chassis with 3axles where the mid axle is floating to ensure a frictionless ride. Base 7w / Cab 6 2/3w / Hood 5wide, and L=18studs. So overall dimensions are similar to a 4563 loco. It is not powered and for the moment I think I leave it like that. Motorisation may be put in a following wagon (?). More pictures may be found in my Flickr account.

    [MOC] R.C. Small Shunter

    I've built this small engine for a harbor freight terminal layout that I've made. It is not a real locomotive replica. I admit that I am closer to the playability side and I prefer the works which keep more of a toy atmosphere :) This shunter was built on a 14 X 6 studs base and has enough space for the cables, I.R. receiver and the minifig. The access to the battery box is easy from the upper side and the communication between R.C. and I.R. receiver is perfect. More pictures could be seen here: https://www.flickr.c...157663795962040 LEGO R.C. Shunter 1 by Severus A, on Flickr LEGO R.C. Shunter 2 by Severus A, on Flickr LEGO R.C.

    [MOC]: The Combo Shunter

    Hey Guys hope you are all having a wonderful 2016! I have another shunter built today (If you haven't noticed I have build a couple, they're just a fun way to pack things into one small package). The Idea came to me recently one night that I liked the 7760 but will never be able to afford it while I also enjoyed the red/white color scheme of the 4563 Load N' Haul engine. So I thought to combine the two and make it look more modern but still have that classic style we all love. Here it is Enjoy!

  21. The awesome tank engine Dutchiedoughnut is assembling inspired me to get stuck into my next project. I destroyed my new dark blue Creator Jet but used the wonderful parts to put together my first Saddle Tank 0-4-0 shunter.

    Can you build 7760 out of 60052?

    I have been in a building mood lately and have noticed a few people saying they would like to MOC but don't know where to start (and don't want to mix up the bricks from their sets). The solution to both problems is with the old 'alternate builds' from the 80s:) This great photo is by Flickr user Zoltán Becsei I'm not the first see an opportunity to make a 7760 style shunter using 60052 parts. There is also a particularly excellent one by reinstein here: https://flic.kr/p/9KrZRe but as far as I can tell no one has made a PF shunter only using the parts found in the blue diesel. So, I'm throwing out the challenge, can you make a PF shunter using only the parts found in the blue diesel? This took me about two hours to do and was much cheaper than going to the pub for my Saturday afternoon:) To help people who would like to get into MOCing I have uploaded the in-progress photos of my build into Flickr so you can see the silly mistakes I made and the things that just didn't work along the way. Laughter is positively encouraged. Here are a couple of the progress shots. https://flic.kr/p/w87Z5G So. I'm not exactly happy with the nose... but I can't see another way to do it without raiding my brickstash. Please feel free to post your builds in this thread if you are keen to give it a go.

    Technically a Train

    Hey everyone! Been fiddling around in LDD for a few days now, and finally have something decent enough to post. I am working on this project with the intention of proposing it on Lego Ideas, however I would much rather know what you all think first!! This project started as an attempt to place PF components into a model of a Midland 4F. The end result imho looks... boxy and generic to say the least, but that may end up being a good thing...? The dimensions in studs are: 34 long by 10 1/3 tall by about 7 wide, not including the side rods. Front: Midland 4F(v3) by Nick Jackson, on Flickr Back: Midland 4F(v3)2 by Nick Jackson, on Flickr The colored cables are: red= receiver, green= motor, yellow= lights. Below is a close-up of the frame setup. I REALLY like how this turned out, because: 1) it has space to mount an L motor! 2) I can change gear ratios from 5/3 (speed) to 3/5 (torque) manually! Midland 4F(v3)3 by Nick Jackson, on Flickr Please give me some feedback, all are appreciated!

    MOC: German DB V60, 8wide

    This is my favourite diesel shunter, and I've built it several times.... I present now my latest attempt and it is 8wide in base with a body in various widths from 5-7studs and with lots of 1/2 plate offset to replicate the interesting shape of the original engine. As always it is nice to hear what you trainheads think about it.
