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.
