Part 5 - Pillars

Part 5 - Pillars

Next part of my story. Well, as I really liked this ball piece at the bottom (which is only available in light (bluish) grey btw) I thought it would do well as a decorative element in pillars. I also did some variations, nothing too special though. I won't add an lxf as it is pretty straightforward. I liked it so much that I did order a larger amount of those ball elements and I really like the look, but I can't say if I'll ever us it. I also built up a small "scene" (if you can call it…

Lego Train Diamond Crossing (version 7)

Following on from Miro Dudas' benchmark work on his 90° crossover, I was inspired to attempt a brick-built 45° crossover, by way of an experiment. It worked out a little better than I feared it might, though I offer absolutely NO guarantee as to its smooth operation! (Subtext - it probably won't work too well.) As such, the LXF file is linked below for others to edit or improve if wished. Not for re-sale or profit please. Kindly post any improvements, I'd be most grateful. LXF: ...

Lego Station Platform Lamps by Michael Gale

Lego Station Platform Lamps

This illustration shows a design of relatively "modern" austere railway station platform lamps for my current layout project. These lamps are designed as standalone drop-in modules into the station platform. They run off of a 12V lighting "bus" from the baseboard and have integrated current limit resistors for the warm white LEDs. The illumination from the LEDs is superb and has just the right colour rendering index (CRI). The use of the 3mm flex tube suited this design because of its…

This illustration shows the completed colour light signal assembly including a completely revised post, ladder, and service cage. The post was designed to carry the wiring from the head down to the baseboard below. A permanently attached connector is mounted on the assembly to offer strain relief for the delicate wires and to permit removal from the layout. The implementation of a "ladder" was achieved using upside down antenna elements mounted with minifig hands and tube. The m...
