Hopefully sometime soon.
I wanted to create a new building, but didn’t really want to buy any new bricks. Even though we have a lot of Lego around, it can be challenging to find enough pieces of a particular color or specialized bricks to make something the way I want it. But I managed to scrounge enough from our collection to create this urban townhouse.
I created this staked bulkhead flat car by modifying the Cargo Wagon from the Lego’s Cargo Train Deluxe set. It’s not based on a real rail car, and I’m not even sure if a short bulkhead with a wood deck exists. But I went with these choices based on my available stock and for some variation in my train (and it’s a Lego town after all, so I can take some leeway). Perhaps I’ll make a full length version down the road.
These Ferraris are just ‘out of the box’ Lego kits I’ve collected over the past few years, but I thought they looked cool all together in a row. I am more fond of vintage American cars like my (real) ’67 Galaxie 500, but until Lego starts making American car kits (or I get into creating custom Lego cars instead of buildings and trains), these will have to do.
This is an intermodal rail car with the Canadian National logo I created. The placement of decals is not entirely accurate but I think comes across well. I’ve also decided to make train cars six studs wide like the Lego sets for compatibility and practicality, even though the scale of cars and containers is not as accurate.
