Hello, Nine years ago i try to make a Replica of this Engine: Well since I improved a little bit my "skills" and there is much more Lego Parts then 9 years ago, this is my second try: LEGO Siemens CP4700 by Sérgio Batista, no Flickr Some details: some scale comparising with a "normal" 7wide Engine :)
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Train TechThis model was inspired by the Siemens SD-460 type light rail vehicles used by Metro Link in Saint Louis, Missouri. They are usually two sets used on every train, so just imagine a exact duplicate of the train above connected to the train you see. Basically it's four cars with only two walkways and four cabs, though only the outer two are ever used on the line. Also, the two cars with the inter-car connection are supposed to share a Jacobs bogie underneath the walkway. I didn't use one because it would cause problems storing the train in my boxes IF I decide to get it. the walkway. I didn't use one because it would cause problems storing the train in my boxes IF I decide to get it. The side of the model. The first set of pantographs on the far ends of the cars are used as ice cutters in cold weather (though they can be used in an emergency for power collection) , while the second, inner pair are actually used as the electric pickup points. This is not my map, I got it off Google. It is used by Metro Link on it's trains to show the stations used by the Light-Rail system. The Metro Bus routes are not shown, as their are too many routes to show on this type of map, though the metro buses usually use the routes of the old streetcars. The train is supposed to feature the "M" logo on it's front and rear ends, but their is no printing on the logo, which is a blue square with a red circle inside, which has a capital "M" in white located inside the red circle. (I used a black 1x1 plate because it stood out more.) Anyone wanting to read more about Metro Link and their plans for any future extensions and such should visit their wiki page here: https://en.wikipedia...ink_(St._Louis) EDIT: forgot to add the LDD file: http://www.moc-pages.com/user_images/80135/1453843587m.lxf
Hi everyone! I chose a very well-known theme for my newest MOC. Almost everyone has a Lego Siemens Taurus at home :D . If you search for it on the net, the number of the matches will be endless. We can find every building method and technique in them. But I guess, I successfully found out new solutions to copy the real one! The engine works with two M-motors. The gear ratio is 1:1,667. Hope you like it! Video: During the scenes with the real Lego track there is a slower version, I changed the gears after making them. The scenes on the yellow brickbuilt track show the faster speed. Pictures: Detailes: The model and the real one have the round and the square hole, too! The overall shape of this section is also similar to the real one, because of the upside-down 1x2 slope. The section of the door has two interesting techniques. Behind the door there is an old 3 brick high panel (without side supports). It prevents the black tiles (the handles) to be at the same plane as the door. Most of the MOCs and official Lego sets use 1x1 plates with vertical clip to fix the bars (handrails). But the distance is too big between the wall and the bar. I used this part. Behind the wall the previously mentioned 1x1 plate holds it. The bars touche the wall, there's no gap between them. Many of the older Taurus models don't have good side-windows. The builders often used stickers. But my windows contains olny Lego pieces. Technical things: The engine contains two M-motors, an AAA battery box, an IR receiver and a short extension wire. The chassis is made of thechnic bricks, and I used 16 studs to fix the body on it. Between the chassis and the bogies there are the smaller versions of technic turntables. The bogies are selfmade, I used more than 160-160 elements for them. I'm not ready with the LDD file, but I think the whole model contains approx 1400. Thanks for watching!
