Realistic shape Thalys TGV
Realistic shape Thalys TGV built for the Fana'briques 2010 exhibition. The aim was to build a TGV with correct height/width and length/width ratio. Because I like very much the red and grey decoration of the Thalys, I have built a commercial version with 10 vehicles for a total length of 3,40 meters.
About this creation
In order to keep its height small, I had to mask the motors so that only the lower part is visible. The full train has 10 vehicles (2 locos and 8 waggons) and integrates 13 motors.

Screen copies of the MLCAD modelized 3 main vehicles of the Thalys Train.

It has been first shown at the Fana'briques 2010 exhibition and run on the the new Ligne ā Grande Vitesse made by BāB : more than 30 meters long and the curves have a radius of 1.5 meters. Note that the windows are stickers.

To give you a better idea, you can see it running in the commercial configuration



and in the competition configuration (5 vehicles)

.

It reached the maximum speed of 21,4 km/h corresponding to 920 km/h at the lego scale.

Another video taken by Denis H.



Finally, it can be seen it this nice video of the exhibition between 6:20 and 7:17.

Love the train, and love the speed! I heard the track runs up to 60V, what power did you use to get its speed record? And how did the engines survive the electricity without grilling?

Hello Mark, I agree with you that the stickers are the bad part of my building. However, don't forget that it is 6-wide and not really high : so, there is nearly no room for windows. Another point, this is really a high speed train reaching 20 km/h as real speed with 30 V applied voltage : so, the building has to be more solid (and lighter) than usual because I don't want to see my train exploding into 1000 parts in case of a crash at 20 km/h. From my point of view, the realistic window which could fit into such a train is the ref. 4035 with the ref. 4036 glass but rotated by 90 degrees (the longest part has to be horizontal). But this makes the construction very fragile. Did you build your train in real because I could not found any other video or image than the movie on youtube ? Best wishes, Daniel
Quoting Mark te Grotenhuis Nice train. I have a lego Thalys myself but then in 8-wide scale. You posted a comment on my video on YouTube. There's one thing I don't like about your model. You didn't make the windows with bricks, but with stickers, did you?

Nice! The video footage was pretty cool to see. Love the really long layout design, too. Makes me wish I were into the train thing!
