AFOL Meeting Leipzig

Early ideas of my H0 scale LEGO layout on display. As you can see: the vintage LEGO trucks going along with the actual Märklin clip-on rail car.

Lego Exhibition

First public display of my LEGO 1:87 H0 scale layout. It’s nice to see the vintage LEGO 1:87 trucks, gas station, trees, and street lamps in combination with Märklin 44734 clip-on block rail cars.

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.

Getting started #01: Base Plate Tutorial

First off you have to imitate the base plate of the Märklin 44734 car to get a proper instruction manual. The Märklin 44734 base plate comes with 4×18 knobs. Lego doesn’t have such plate available so you have to improvise. 

I’ve got best results using a 2×16 plate and then attaching three 4×6 plates as shown above.

The instruction for the base plate isn’t necessary to create your own model – but it enables the LEGO Digital Designer to create automatically the instruction manual for your rail car.

Mobile Power Station

This is my second design for a rail car built on the H0 scale Märklin Clip-on block car. The mobile power station is intended to power the satellite communications car of the emergency train. Once again you can see the heavy usage of transparent bricks to give the train a more detailed look in H0 scale.
