LEGO trains – Beautiful BNSF EMD SD40-2

Lately, I’ve been getting more and more into LEGO trains.  My goal is to put together a 10′ x 10′ LEGO town & train display.  I have a few LEGO trains in my collection, but one of my LEGO regrets is missing out on the BNSF.

Check out this LEGO BNSF made by bricksonwheels.

LEGO trains - EMD SD40-2 Lego 1:16It is absolutely stunning.  Perfect really.  But did you notice the scale?  LEGO trains are usually 6-wide.  Some builders like their LEGO trains to be 8-wide.  This bad boy looks to be closer to 24-wide!

Impressive, huh?

Are you a LEGO train fan?  Which ones do you ave?

My LEGO MOC displayed at the LEGO store!

Now that the camping season is finally winding down here in Michigan, I should have more time to post about LEGO again!

My big LEGO news for the summer is that I got to display my own LEGO MOC in the brand ribbon at our local LEGO store for the month of July.

My LEGO DisplayIt’s a pretty simple model, but I used a lot of techniques I’ve never used before in one scene.  Here are some tings I was especially pleased with or proud of:

  • Building on an angle.  Way more challenging than I thought!
  • My largest brickscaping effort by far.
  • The water.
  • My brick built SNOT highway.
  • My trees.
  • The frame around my MOC

What do you think?  Pretty cool, huh?

How did you LEGO this summer?
