LEGO 1:87 Breakdown Crane
Lego 1:87 Model Railroad
LEGO City House
Three story city house build with the vintage LEGO garage from the vintage 1/87 series. A LEGO Citroën DS is leaving the garage while a LEGO Mercedes ‘Rundhauber’ truck is passing the street. LEGO 1/87 accessories and products were produced from 1954-1970.
LEGO small train station
This small train station was my very first attempt to design buildings for the H0 scale LEGO train series. Basically it’s just an entrance hall with a neo-classical portal of four columns towards the city. The platform side shows a mid-century modern glass wall with just two colums left after the reconstruction.
LEGO H0 scale modular buildings
Recently I’ve started the creation of special H0 scale modular buildings on 16×16 base plates.
Railroad Snow Plow
This is still my favorite model based on the Märklin 44734 LEGO car. It was an spontaneous idea – and took me basically an afternoon to design it. To collect all parts from Ebay took me few days. The basic design is inspired by a swiss steam snow plow.
Tank Car “Shell”
Third car of the emergency train is the Tank Car. As shown in the second picture you can use the hosepipe of the Mobile Power Station Car and pump the fuel to the Mobile Power Station. The Shell brick and the Shell plate are original vintage pieces of LEGO.
LEGO Flat Car
I love printed LEGO bricks and tiles. After discovering these gorgeous tiles with wooden prints I’ve decided to design a flat car based on the Märklin 44734 car. The flat car is loaded with industrial pumps. It is a very simple design – but I love it. Of course I’ve used only original LEGO parts.
Wir bauen eine Stadt – We build a City
The Märklin 44734 Clip-on block car isn’t a new idea. Lego and H0 scale model trains have a long tradition. Back in the 1950s LEGO Germany came up with a TV commercial showing LEGO building bricks combined with a Märklin model train layout.
This commercial dates to 1957, 2nd year of LEGO in Germany!
