It's not a real train shed?

I'm not a LEGO train fan, but this model by Maciej Drwiega makes me want to be one. When I see LEGO trains, I think little of them. In fact, I consider most LEGO trains to not be worth my time, except when they are made from pretty colors or are photographed well, which makes it easier to relate to the builder because he or she is also an artist. Or, of course, I like them when they are blogged on the only blog that I read.

You can really tell I am not a LEGO train fan when I do not notice how well the ballast is not done. Or, how well the randomly picked plants, randomly scattered along the track, randomly not affecting the loading gauge, do not look. Or, how I claim that the interior is very detailed, but there are just some trains, tools, and not so elaborate columns in it. I also do not notice how much the smaller, not so curved and smooth roof contrasts with the curved roof, whose construction methods I can only guess, but looks perfect even though, because I am not a LEGO train fan, I know nothing on which to base it. I really only notice the how the brick walls were done, which is definitely a new technique, that has not been done over and over again.

  6. sometimes i'm not sure what the point of this blog is. Is it to point out things you dislike about MOC's? or is it to poke fun at TBB?

  8. The purpose of all blogging is masturbation, Curtis. The only meaningful distinction is whether or not the money shot is interesting.
