Training Gagarin

We don’t really know much about trains (we are a car blog after all), but we do still like them. Especially when they’re as detailed and colourful as this one is. A PKP ST44-1112 ‘Comrade Gagarin’ (apparently…), it’s been built by Mateusz Waldowski of Flickr, and it is quite wonderfully made and presented. An assortment of five beautifully-built trucks are in tow behind the locomotive, making Mateusz’s model really rather large indeed, with lovely attention-to-detail throughout. Head to Flickr via the link above to see more of the train tribute to the first man in space.

Not a Car

This is definitely, positively, not a car. In fact we don’t really know what it is (OK, a train, but beyond that…), but what we do know is it’s one of the best examples of LEGO presentation we’ve yet found. Brilliantly superimposed on a real-world background, Sergio Batista‘s rendered train includes a little dirt and grime, plus a lovely reflection effect where the light hits the top of the train carriages. There’s more to see of this image plus the others in Sergio’s collection on Flickr.

Iron Road

Lego Microscale Train Bridge

We’re a bit nerdy here at The Lego Car Blog, so sometimes we like a good bridge. OK, we’ll show ourselves out, but before we go and have a quite word with ourselves if you suffer from this unfortunate disposition too you can check out of more of Tim Schwalfenberg‘s (brilliant) ‘River Crossing’ at the link.

Wagon Wheels

Lego Train Wagons

These four beautiful tanker wagons were discovered on Flickr today. Built by Alexander (aka narrow_gauge) they are some of the most intricately detailed (and wonderfully liveried) train creations we’ve come across. See more at Alexander’s photostream via the link above.

Train Crane

Lego Bangor & Aroostook Crane

We don’t often post railway-related builds here at The Lego Car Blog, but when we do they’re good. As demonstrated here by William Dumond‘s beautifully recreated Town-scale Bangor & Aroostook BAR X127 wrecker. Clever building techniques are in evidence throughout the build, and it functions too. See more on Flickr via the link above.

Not a Car

Lego Crane Train

But probably the nicest crane-train thingumy we’ve ever seen. Plus we like trains, and we like cranes, so it’s appearing here. Dario Minisini is the builder and there’s more to see of this lovely mini-figure scale build on Flickr.

Teeny Tiny Trains

rail01

It’s a been a while since we’ve featured anything railway related here at The Lego Car Blog and this pair of locomotives from Bangoo H were too good to miss. Click the link to see the details of the Maersk freight hauler and the GWR style Pacific loco, complete with a clerestory passenger coach. As well as this display stand, Bangoo H has also built a rather nice engine shed for his locomotives to live in.

Photography Class 116

Lego TrainThis is the best Lego photo we’ve ever posted. Bricktrix’s Class 116 train stopped the entire office in its tracks (Ahah! A train joke!) in disbelief. See the spectacular photos on Flickr. You probably won’t see a better photo this year.
