  1. [MOC]: Palameria Commuter Station

    So I wanted to do something detailing the environment of a setting this time, rather than having a specific goal in mind. It started out as a library. I was going to have cool columns and a giant staircase, and then it turned into the grand entrance to a building. The building didn't quite come together right, so I made it into a futuristic train station! Included a couple mini figures, and there you have it! Here's the backstory I wrote up: On the far-off world of Palameria, the Senate of the Regency of Constellations is in session! Senator Cassandra Delgado, accompanied by an entourage of handmaidens and guard, has arrived at the capital. En route to a meeting with the Minister of Culture, Senator Delgado must deliver a mystical key, and receive a mysterious book in return! There are more pictures on the Flickr page here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/150692089@N03/with/37878034972/ And it's also up on LEGO Ideas!

  3. I built this station with set the 2007 CITY set 7997 in mind. I got the original set in 2007, along with a double rail crossover for my Birthday that year. I wanted to make it a full building but didn't have the parts. By 2008, I had discovered Bricklink, but the station was in pieces by then and was not re-created until early 2012. The station was a stock set, while I searched for ideas. Eventually, I came across a build by a fellow Eurobricks user named Lazarus that incorporated a modular basis, a full building (street & track-sides) & a appealing design. I saved a picture of it and made my own design based on his. I included really neat features, (such as the arched lattice windows made with a fence) but I went too far and made it impossible to transport to train shows and LUG meetings. The platforms were very flimsy om the XL baseplates, and during the move to my families current house, it shattered into small chunks. So, I went back to the drawing board, scrapping everything but the building itself. Here is the end result, which is strangely near where I started with set 7997. It has one platform, plentiful outside seating on the platform, and is red instead of yellow. There are many changes from the set, (no stairs on the platform, for example.) but the heart and soul of that 2007 set is still there. The row of studs on both track and street sides should say the station name in printed 1 x 1 tiles. This sign currently says "IRONWOOD", as that's the name of my city layout. The model is now 8 studs deeper, allowing for more room for my hands when being worked on. Here we can see the street side of the station with it's new wheelchair access ramp. Here we can see the interior of the station, with blue ticket machines, seating, and snack bar on the first floor. The train tracking / switching controls are located on the second floor along with the employees - only coffee machine with paper cups.. This printed part here provides the computer display screen. Here you can see the modular breakdown of the model, which includes the following: -Station building (lower floor) -Station roof and Tower control room (upper floor) -Tower roof -left platform section -right platform section The LDD file is here, in case anyone wants to built their own version. (I will be building this version soon, most likely before Christmas.) Comments, Questions & Complaints welcome!
  4. This modular station was inspired by a long since expired Cuusso / Ideas project, (not mine), and set 2150 Train Station from 1996. II added a clock suspended above the platform and removable six track long platform. II even put a wheelchair access ramp from the street side for use by the wheelchair pieces LEGO recently made. Underneath the clock (which is itself inspired by item I saw on Brick-Link) is where the name of the station / town goes on 1 x 4 bricks with side studs. It can say anything you want, but "Lego City Union Depot" is what I would put there. The street side of the station has been extended towards the edge of the base-plate, allowing for a more room (and more details!) inside the building. The lower floor has the central ticket desk and two inside waiting rooms located under the two left and right wings. These wings also allow for access to the platform under the twin canopies. The second floor has the switching control room and station managers office which floats inside the exterior walls on some tile-topped pillars. This assembly is barely connected to the build by two studs. (NOTE: No stairs to the upper floor were made because that's how the official CITY sets are, so I didn't include any. Besides, it would have messed with symmetry of the station!) The modular station features two platform sections, two lower roof sections, one upper roof section, and the removable second floor on top of a cafe (with seating) on the lower level. The station platforms fit via Technic pins while the other sections attach via a few studs. EDIT 10/16/17: Added new pictures of the revised station. Comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!
  5. [MOC] Modular Train station

    Hi everyone, In this topic I wanted to show you all my progress on my first modular building for a new city called Canalview. Currently I lack the space to actually display a city, so I wanted to really take the time to design and create each building. The first one is a grand central station. In the past years I made several attempt to create such a building, of which some are more succesfull than others. Here's a quick summary of my earlier attempts: Canalview Grand Central Station 2017 - Update 17 September 2017 At the start of the month I began building the train station with real bricks. However it was very time consuming to search for the right pieces from the already pre-sorted pieces, because it were over 7000 (!). The result of two days work can be seen here: As you can imagine this really began to become a problem, because I want to finish it before the end of the year. As a result I decided to again pre-sort the bricks, but instead sorting them for the whole thing, I sorted them per sub-section. Whitin a day one of the five main sub-sections has been made: Older updates Update 26 August 2017 Update 14 August 2017 Update July 2017 Hope you all like it so far, please if you have any comments or tips feel free to post them
  6. [MOC] 'Bricks Cross' - Train Station

    Hi all! I've recently been working on a bunch of train-related projects and figured i'd need a place to display them once a substantial amount have been built. I wanted to do a city center station that, while still small enough to be affordable, gave an impression of being bigger than it actually was. And while it isn't based on the similar-sounding King's Cross, it does deliberately have a very London design. The result is half-terminus, half continuous with the platforms below street level. I tried to render it all as one but my computer doesn't have the processing power for all those bricks! I hope you don't mind seeing the build in its 3 main sections. SECTION 1: The building Ground Floor: First Floor: Front view: SECTION 2: The canopy This will be much longer in the final model. The version rendered here is designed to cover the remainder of the 32 x 32 baseplate. SECTION 3: Base level: Platform & Concourse I hope this has been an interesting looking build to you, I'll update this feed when I finally get around to making it for real!! I'd love to hear any comments and suggestions too! -Isaac
  7. This model was inspired by set 10199 / 10249, Winter Village toy Shop. I originally built this as an open-back building in 2013, and scrapped it in 2015 for a larger, full-bodied station. I never did forget about this model, and rediscovered it while looking for my Hogsmeade station to go with my Hogwarts Express model I had designed. The model will be finished in real bricks very soon, and as such I have tweaked it again by adding stairs to the top floor where the station master's office is. The track side also features a space for eight printed 1 x 1 letter tiles to be placed to designate the station name along with plenty of passenger seating along the five-track-long platform. That's three tracks longer than the new Winter Village train station, and mine also features a rear wall and second story! Here is the street side of the station. This side includes an overhang that protects passengers entering the structure from the rain along with a wheelchair / luggage ramp access to the platform. The model features two modular lift-off levels and two split-away platform sections, along with some inside details. The lower floor features a fireplace, four chairs, and a desk for workers to hand out tickets. The top level features the station master's office, which is accessible via the staircase from the lower level. Here is the complete LDD file. I already have 95% of this model collected IRL, and I just need to order the last 500 parts early next month. Comments, Questions, and Complaints are always welcome! UPDATED 8/23/17: added new pictures and staircase to the model. LDD file also updated!
  8. [MOC] Subway Train and Station

    hello, i decided to create a subway train and the station as i feel lego is lacking a subway, the station is based on the Swedish undergrounds as they are filled with nice colours and the train is just a generic subway car which probably fits more towards a NYC sub but oh well please let me know what you think the project is also on ideas if you would like to see this https://ideas.lego.com/projects/ff56ee95-3958-4871-87f2-65aeac7e9b9c
  9. Here we see my MOD of the Brick City Depot (Winter Village) Fire station. I redid the color scheme in some places & added a different Fire Engine. I remodeled the top level (no tower) and put pillars in the corners of the building, plus I added a back wall with inside details. The garage doors open to allow the fire truck to back in. (it does fit, I checked!) The 4 x 4 bonnet right above the doors should feature this print. As you can see, here is the back wall with the chimney flue for the oven and roof top water storage barrel. The inside now features two bunk beds. a oven, table, chairs, reception area and rotary-dial phone. The fireman's pole goes from the upper floor to the bottom level, and stairs allow for you to return to the top. I was inspired to build this by set 9484, Red's Water Rescue. I replaced the eyes with window parts, while adding a grille where the mouth was. I also beefed up the rear, and removed the flick-fire missiles. The sides of the truck should have two of this print under the hoses where the blank 2 x 2 tiles are. The side of the truck features two hoses (one for each side) and the roof has a ladder. (The ladder can rotate 360 degrees and can go up and down.) The doors to get into the crew cab also open and close while the sides feature 4 hose hookups (that's the pearl gold 1x1 round studs) and two identical pump controls. The LDD for both the station and truck can be downloaded here. Comments, Questions & Complaints are welcome, and this model is on the to-be-built short list... maybe by December of this year(?) alongside the town hall. Any thoughts?
  10. This model was heavily inspired by set 4555 (Cargo Station) from 1995 and by set 60052 (Cargo Train) from 2014. I smashed both models together and added some of my inspiration in places. (This model is also supposed to be compatible with set 60169 (Cargo Terminal) from this years summer CITY lineup.) As a side note, the sign on top of the lower floor is supposed to say CARGO TERMINAL in printed 1 x 1 tiles. The original set 4555 is one of the sets my father bought back in 1995 when 9v was King and I was just a little baby. Growing up I remember playing fondly with this set.... actually, I loved tearing it apart and making it better, which drove my Dad nuts. I think I tore his collection apart so much he decided to give me my own trains to pull apart, which are actually still together today. The rear of the model. I added new 1x6x5 panels to add a bit of texture to the otherwise smooth area. The model features expanded interior details such as the staircase to access the top floor where the conference / break room is from the lower floor secretary's desk area. It also features a swing open rear section containing a office under the stairs, with a Technic pin to lock it closed. NOTE: The rear half can only open up to 90 degrees, as the base of the model prevents it from opening any further. The gantry and the crane itself slide back and forth to provide for truck to train (or train to truck) movement of shipping containers or raw materials by themselves. The gantry can move left to right (red arrow), while the actual crane can move forward and back. (yellow arrow) Unfortunately, the LDD program doesn't allow for it to move, but it will in real life! This model is missing one crucial part: the cable for the crane. (That's this part: http://www.bricklink...e?P=x77ac50#T=C ) With the new enlarged road section, the model now lines up with the modern printed road base-plates. Here is the LDD file for my model: LDD link All comments, be they complaints, questions or compliments are welcome! EDIT 6/15/17: The model has been updated with wider two-way road section and longer crane. (the brick-built roadway now lines up with modern road base-plates) LDD file and pictures have been updated as well.
  11. Fire Station (MOC)

    My second build for ABS Round 2.1 The seed part is the red bucket, which I used 19 times (once in another color) in this build, see if you can find them all! I have wanted to try some builds in the city theme for a while, and a fire truck offered some nice possibilities to use the seed part. Then I decided to add the actual fire station, and a smaller fire truck after coming up with some other ideas for the part. The build is complete on all sides, and even has a bit of interior. The trucks feature various compartments for fire fighting supplies. See more pictures on my website. Thanks for looking, comments and suggestions welcome
  12. [MOC] Police Headquarters

    Ever since I got the Fire Brigade, I've wanted a modular police station. Sure, the City theme seems to put them out every other week, and they all seem to fill the role well. But there has been no bona-fide modular police station, and with my first planned modular MOC I set out to change that. I present to you the Police Headquarters The build was inspired by a number of things. Jasper Joppe Geer's excellent Muntstraat Police HQ and the old Hartford, Connecticut Post Office building in particular, along with Lego set 7744. But they all combined to make something new (and big!). This was my first build through LDD, but like all good builds I started with a drawing! Then came 7+ drafts and revisions in LDD, each with a number of renders in POV-Ray to see how they might look in real life The building has 3 fully decorated floors with a bevy of details. First floor: Second floor: Third Floor: Exterior detail: More images (and many more renders and LDD screenshots) can be found in an album on my Flickr. For those interested, I am in the process of polishing instructions and eventually intend to put them up for purchase. Thanks for viewing, criticism and critique welcome!
  13. Over the last year or so I have been trying to improve my Lego building skills. I love all kinds of Lego, but I'm pretty much obsessed with Harry Potter Lego. I can't get enough of it! I'm always building and this is my latest MOC. It's part of a much bigger model, but I really think it stands up well by itself. Introducing. King's Cross Station: I've really wanted this to be a playable/functional set, but with lots of details. Here are some close ups so you can have a proper look: Hope you enjoy it and please if you have any tips/feedback on my builds let me know. "The road to success is constantly under construction......with Lego bricks"
  14. Tramway line stations and depot

    Stations and depot (inspired by real ones of my city) for my tramway line:
  15. This model was originally inspired by two sets: 7498 (Police Station from 2011), and two police cars from set 71016 (Kwik-E-Mart from 2015). I modified the station to have modular floors so you can access the inside easier. (these sections are all grouped separately in LDD as well) I also combined parts of set 7744 (2007's Police Headquarters set) into this model to make it like even better. However, their are three of this part in black missing from the model for the slanted windows. The bottom floor features a waiting room with a large TV, receptionist's desk and the garages for the two patrol cars under the jail cells. The second floor is the booking office and what will be desks / evidence containers. The third floor features a water cooler and coffee machine, along with detective offices. It will eventually feature a interrogation room. The jail cells open up both at the same time via a sliding panel. Their are also two escape routes via the toilets as seen above. The car is from set 71016, and all but for two differences is stock from the set. The roof has and light-bar been modified to allow for the cars to fit in the garage, and a licence plate added to the front of the each vehicle. The car features room for two officers side-by-side and one detained criminal behind the security barrier. The roof is removable, plus the doors and trunk open. The reason for building these models as they are is my town needs a police station, but I don't like the 4 wide cars they have in the CITY theme. I found an file of a police station sitting on my hard drive from 2013, just waiting for a car to be added to it. Then I remembered the Simpson's police car that was released a couple years back and the rest kinda fell into place.You can download the LDD file for the station and two patrol cars at this link here. As usual, comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!
  16. Space... vast and endless as time itself, yet filled with many lifeforms bound by Creativity. The Odyssey project was designed to protect life from the forces of Chaos and Destruction, no matter the cost. But it serves another purpose too, as a gathering place of aliens races' leaders and a meeting of the great inventive minds in the universe. From times of war to times of peace, the Odyssey space station has stood proudly as a beacon of light to the many worlds darkened by the forces of evil. Now that beacon is threatened by mysterious forces from beyond our dimension, plus old foes that have resurfaced in this time of peril. The plea has gone out for help to save Imagination... Will YOU answer the Call? Fictional info: This space station (named Odyssey II) orbits the ice world of Beta Polaris, pointed at the direction of the trans-dimensional rip in space-time that leads to Lego Universe, ready to report any threat that may emerge from the space between spaces. Odyssey II is both an advanced weapons research platform and a forum for great minds and leaders from throughout the universe.The station is the headquarters for the Neo Nexus Force, (in cooperation with the Norsta race, of course) and the home of Nexus - Polaris University. This school focuses on the meaning of time and space itself, plus performing experiments on hyper-space streamlining, artificial gravity production, theoretical physics, and sports. (Let's go Nexo-nauts!) (this picture has a description of the areas of the station. See here for a bigger look at the picture so you can read it!) Their are meeting rooms on one of the half of the two arms of the station, which provides the gravity for this section like a centrifuge. As such, this section is laid out so that the "ground" is towards the ends of the arms, with the center having lower gravity and the non-public front and back of the station have none and you can float weightless in. The other one of the arms features a large research facility, with many libraries and even a small university focused on the study of space, time and the many mysteries therein. The station also has "the wheel". This module provides living quarters for all the university staff, visitors, and station crew, and gravity is provided by the "ground" being the outer wall of the arms. The engines on this station allow it to move if need be, even through hyper-space, though this has never happened on a large scale beyond course correction and maintaining balance in it's orbit of Beta Polaris. Here we see one of the Neo-Nexus Force ships (the cruiser Bright Hope) docked on one of the four "gravity locks". These allow for the ship to sync up with the station and crew / passengers to disembark the ship. The solar panels on the station are actually detectors of chaos energy, which would mean the breach between Universes is open once more and the evil of the Maelstrom is coming through. This would mean the station would be evacuated of civilian personnel and the military forces bolstered, ready to attack the swirling mass of darkness. The Bridge Hope in miniature scale. (This was designed by my brother to be a counterpart to the Odyssey II space station. It is based off my mini-figure scale ship of the same name: Bright Hope) This vessel is included in the LDD file. (In reality the space station model was inspired by this model by DcotorSpock888: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dr_spock_888/20558633496/in/dateposted/ plus the Babylon 5 and Star Trek TV series', the Star Wars universe, and the old LEGO Universe massive multiplayer online game.) As usual, Comments, Questions, and Complaints are welcome! EDIT 3/9/17: The model has been updated, and the pictures retaken and uploaded.
  17. 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.
  18. Hi! I haven't been very active here for a while, but I was busy "working" on some LDD models and revising them. Some of you might have seen them already on my flickr photostream. I also got to render my models for the first time Ok, I'll show you the pics My revised BR Standard Class 9F "Evening Star" I borrowed codefox421's coaches to try on the 9F (all credit for the coaches goes to him, here is the link to his topic: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=97927 ) I also revised my GWR 14xx, but that'll be part of another topic soon Then I also rendered and (re) designed some rolling stock: From top left to bottom right: Cattle Wagon Tank Wagon Well Wagon Vent Van GWR 16 Ton Toad Brake Van BR 20 Ton Brake Van (brown livery) BR 20 Ton Brake Van (grey and yellow livery) I also designed a water tower: and a modular train station. This is one section: You can make it bigger: and build a pretty decent station: The station has too many parts to be rendered And another station building: I hope you enjoyed it Comments and criticisms are welcome! Greetings, Nick P.S.: You can see higher resolution pics on my flickr: http://www.flickr.co...s/94645638@N07/
  19. Tram of Opicina

    Hi! I'm a new train LEGO fan, my new passion started last spring... But I think that a LEGO tram is missing, so I created in LEGO the tram of my little city. This is my MOC: Tram of Opicina #DSC_1058 by Prison Brick, on Flickr Tram of Opicina #IMG_2473 by Prison Brick, on Flickr Tram of Opicina #IMG_2496 by Prison Brick, on Flickr Tram of Opicina #DSC_1061 by Prison Brick, on Flickr Now I submit it on LEGO Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/158520 Please, support & share if you like it! Thanks! Every comment helps me to improve!
  20. Winter Village: Filling Station

    Welcome to the Winter Village Filling Station, where you can fill your gas tank and fill your belly at the same time! This creation features the main building, a pair of vintage-style gas pumps, and a retro gas truck. Here's the main building, with tire rack and vintage road sign. It's been decorated quite nicely for the winter holiday. Inside, you can stock up on supplies and chat with the friendly staff. The pumps are shielded by a canopy. And here's the truck, which I had the most fun designing to give it a mid-century diesel look. More images available on Flickr. Thanks for looking! Comments and suggestions welcome!
  21. Hi everyone, We (me and my brother) have been busy for the last 5 months. We created a landscape with scenes and locations of the Harry Potter series. The landscape is 8 meter long and 1.25 meters deep. The landscape contains the Hogwarts Castle, the Burrow, London with Diagon Alley, Private Drive and Hogsmeade. The Private Drive, London and train station are built by my brother. I have built the Hogwarts Castle, Quiddith field, the Whomping Willow and Hogsmeade. The Castle was already shown at another event and was also posted on Eurobricks. Hogwarts Castle The Whomping Willow can move three branches and is powered by PF. At the Whomping Willow is scene from Prisoner of Azkaban, where Lupin turns into a werewolf. Very close to the Whomping Willow is Hogsmeade and a platform. More towards London, there is graveyard with the duel between Harry Potter and Voldemort with the presence of the Death Eaters. The Burrow is close to the graveyard. London is one street with the Diagon Alley behind it. There is a small alley between the two. At the street there is a train station with a parking lot. In the Diagon Alley there are several shops and the Gringotts Wizarding Bank. Close to the Diagon Alley is the Private Drive with three houses and a playground. At the backside of the castle, there is a boathouse. The confrontation with the Hungarian Horntale is behind the greenhouses. The Quiddith field and the Forbidden Forest are at the other side of the castle. On the Quiddith field there is a match between Slytherin and Gryffindor. In the Dark Forest there are several Threstrals and Aragog are present. In the corner of the forest, there is a confrontation between Harry Potter and Voldemort as a reference to the last part. Here is a picture of an overview of the backside of Hogwarts. Here is a picture of the Hogwarts Express and the Burrow. Here is an picture of London. Here is a picture of an overview of the countryside. In the front is the Whomping Willow. At the left is Hogsmeade and in the back is the London.

  22. Hello! Again more train related stuff, today my station, one of the main structures of my town and one of the first modulars ever built in my diorama. It is fully modular, and it has two platforms and two tracks. It's inspired to the common italian stations of many small town. On one side there is a direct access to platform 1, with a newsstand, on the other side there is a small park and a coffee kiosk. Street side with bus stop Tracks side Details of platform 1 with automatic vendor machine Larger view with underpass View of the park View of the newsstand Hope you enjoied the pictures :)
  23. I was inspired by a Facebook post to the Modular LEGO Buildings group by a person named Kade Rodgers to create this railway station. Here is the original version that comes from 2011 and was later demolished: This model was inspired by set 10199, Winter Village toy Shop. The building is open backed, and features a desk on the top floor and ticket counter with cash register on the first floor. ...and here is the newer version the above model was turned into. This newer model is modular, and as such has five removable sections that combine into one medium size station. Here you can see the track side of the station which has plenty of seats (16 chairs, to be precise) for waiting passengers to sit on. Here you can see the street side, where the public enters the station from the parking lot or can directly access the platform via the ramp. You can also see the stairs to the upper floor which is where the station master's office is. This is the inside of the station, with two ticket machines and six seats for the indoor passenger waiting area. The coal burning fireplace is still used on really cold winter nights, but since the last few winters have been mild in Ironwood, it hasn't been used in a good long while. Here is the old station master's office on the upper floor, which is off limits the the public. In more recent years it has been made to function as the employee break room / switch control tower for the tracks in the immediate vicinity of the station. The entire model is made up of five sections that come apart. They are as follows: first floor, second floor, second floor roof, left platform and right platform. Sadly, their is no LDD file available for thew new station. However, comments, questions & complaints are always welcome! (EDIT 7/13/16: After hearing some good suggestions about adding a ramp back onto one of my railroad stations, I have finally finished finding the parts for it and gotten some pictures taken of the updated model. Enjoy!)
  24. [MOC] Monorail station & sushi grill

    Hi all Here's another new MOC. Moving away from residential buildings but keeping the style with black, white and grey boxes with a lot of glass to provide a contemporary/modern design, my latest building is a monorail station with a sushi and fish restaurant. The big "M" of the city's fast monorail network isn't just attracting many commuters every day but also sushi and fish lovers all over town. Monorail station & sushi grill by Polar Stein, on Flickr During first week of opening, a student in a shark costume was hired to attract commuters and passengers walking by. The entire building is on pillars. At street level (ground floor) there is a disabled parking space and parking space for bikes. The small sushi and fish restaurant extends over first and second level, accessible via stairs and the elevator. At first level there are also restrooms. The second level connects to the monorail station (right end of the building) and is accessible both via stairs and the elevator. A small roof terrace on top of the restaurant provides views over the city.

Please mind the gap between train and platform ..."

The monorail train is supposed to be red though . More pictures including interiors and the connection to a simple monorail platform can be found on my flickr page https://flic.kr/s/aHskzjsG2r. Comments and critique, things to improve etc. more than welcome! Cheers, Polarstein
  25. I have some difficulties in placing this topic in correct section. Should it be Trains? On the other hand it is supposed to work in a modular town, that's why I put it in Town. This is my biggest creation so far. Actually those are two modulars designed to be placed together on a display. The depth is 48 studs instead of regular 32 because of tracks and platform. I decided it was unrealistic to stick to 32 and still have decent building. Anyway, on with presentation :) What I hope is apparent from the picture above is that I incorporated some lights into these structures. The old 9V battery box is in the warehouse and gives power to all six pairs of lights (2x 9V in warehouse and 4x PF in station). There is also old style 9V switch that controls turning lights on and off without the need to reach for the battery box (black switch on the side of the warehouse). Before I show you the warehouse let's have a look at the platform: The warehouse: This is how the electric parts are distributed in the warehouse. You can also see the inside with some pallets and a cupboard for employees. Now, let's have a look at the station building: First - the roof. This is where I put all the lights that go with the station. This is how it looks like from the underside: That's 4 pairs of PF lights, one PF extension cable and one 9V cable to provide easy to disconnect outlet. The station itself has some nice flowers on the front, benches for passengers, some roof over the platform and a phone booth. That's what you could already see from the outside. So let's have a look inside :) There is a bit o a stir at the moment because of some careless passenger. Don't worry - this is being cleaned as we speak :) Looking from the front of the station you have confectionery that sells ice cream too and on the right your typical railway station fast food stand (with microwave in case your yesterday pizza is cold! :D) Looking from the platform side on the left there are some tables belonging to the restaurant, ticket booth and some waiting area. On the right there is an obligatory public toilet :), two gaming machines and luggage deposit lockers. If you wonder how it looks in town - its natural environment - here are just a couple of pictures: Full gallery is available as always on my Bricksafe: http://bricksafe.com...-with-warehouse
