BrickCon 2010 Train Trophy

I was asked to come up with an idea for a train trophy for Brick Con. This is it. It borrows some designs from other builders, but I think it all comes together pretty well.

 

I don't know why the color brown came out so gross, but I think you'd get the gist.

 

The final design is a little different, mostly the brick built track has been replaced with a piece of plastic track cut in half, and I believe the tunnel will be slightly taller. It also inspired another train trophy, so that there will be a steam and a diesel award.

    Karf OohluIt's funny, I'm actually tempted to build this myself, and then another version with part of a caboose in the tunnel for exactly that purpose.

  • Tony Sava 5y

    Thank you all, I appreciate it. I hope the recipient enjoys it as much as you all seem to. I've never been to BrickCon, nor will I this year, so it'll be nice having a little part of me there.

    I'll be sure to look at this while there, so's I can say I've seen a lil' piece of you.

    ...er, wait, that sounded creepy. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEANT!!!

    Fantastic job. I may also have to re-create this as a book end. One more LEGO thing to display.

    Ha! I know a guy who LOVES Portal!
    These would make great bookends too, but on the other end is the caboose!

    Yep, this is a great trophy! Thanks Tony!
