'SETTLER' Mobile Monorail Station

Another Blast from the past (2009)

The pictures i had taken of this thing were of horrible quality . I tried my best to improve them but they're still very blurry.

After building the Colossus

I wanted to try something bigger and built this 'SETLLER' Mobile Monorail Station.


The concept of Mobile Station is quite paradoxical but as this is sci-fi so...

This thing was fully motorized, Could move (barely) and its crane could lift objects.

But its best feature was a monorail track that could be attached automatically with magnets once the station moved close enough to allow a nice connection with any monorail circuit. Altho this didnt have a 100% chance of succes , it was still fun to operate. Monorails could dock inside with their cargo, and be carried elsewhere.


This is by far the biggest crawler i ever built. Too bad the pictures were so poor. Im trying to look for videos of it in action.
