Gospel train

Well first I’ll say a hello to Brothers Brick readers out there. I’ve been invited to cover trains and virtual LEGO creations (raytraced, rendered but definitely not real) for the blog. I’m very new to this whole blogging thing having started my own blog a bit over a week ago and you probably won’t get many words out of me usually but I’m pretty sure I know a good creation when I see one and I guess that’s what you’re here to see.

To copy-paste my profile on the Brothers Brick “I’m a builder with a short attention span and a lot of virtual bricks. I’m probably most known as a train builder and was involved in the creation of LEGO set 10183 (the Hobby Train Box) but I do a lot of other stuff too. I’m also a member of the LDraw SteerCo and a webmaster for the site.”

Anyway, on to the good stuff…

James Mathis' Cascades Passenger Train

When I was just starting out building properly with LEGO (as opposed to the mucking around I did as a kid and young adult) the train builder who inspired me the most was James Mathis. I’ve since had the honour of working with James on a couple of projects as well as the Hobby Train Box. As well as being one of my favourite train builders James has the added advantage of allowing me to introduce both my areas of ‘research': trains and virtual LEGO.

Andreas Weissenburg's Bird

And to give you something brand spanking new (well almost) I’d also like to show off Andreas Weissenburg’s Bird.

And I think I’ll leave my inaugaral post at that. Hope it’s all worked OK.

    Welcome to TBB, Tim! We haven’t talked much before, but I’m glad you’re here. Its a pleasure to have you join us.

    Wow. TBB is turning into a LEGO newspaper in a sense. A different department to cover all sorts of MOCs.

    I’m looking for a reference of a leggo bird to do a painting of…would you mind if I used this one? Mike
