Narrow Gauge Railway of Szilvásvárad
About this creation



Hi!

As you can see on the two pictures above and in this short video, this MOC is a copy of a real thing.

We haven’t got a Grand Canyon, or an Eiffel in Hungary, but it’s still possible to find nice places here. For example Szilvásvárad (a little village) is one of the best places of the country. There is a small valley here, which was made by the Szalajka creek. And at the end of it there is this beautiful waterfall. There are a lot of other sights, too, for example the ancient men’s cave, the lookout tower, etc.



It’s possible to reach the end of the valley on foot, by bicycle, and by the narrow gauge railway. It has a 4 km long track in the forest, near the creek. It was a forestry railway in the past, and now it’s the only narrow gauge railway in Hungary, which can maintain itself. It has more, than 200 000 passengers a year.

The railway usually uses two engines. One of them was modernized a few years ago, it is the one on the main photo. My Lego version contains this engine, a passenger coach and the snack bar wagon. The snack bar wagon is almost always near the waterfall, sometimes the engine takes it back to the village to refill it.

The amount of tourists is increasing, I guess it was the reason of some developments there. Due to them, the valley contains too much buildings and asphalt, but it’s still nice. Don’t forget to visit it, if you are in Hungary!







































Thanks for watching!

A very nice Narrow Gauge locomotive, so much detail in such a small package! Honestly I can't even pick a favorite between the locomotive and two cars, they all have so much charm. You should really try and modify this with Power Functions to run on Narrow Gauge track, a local builder near me managed to do that with a LEGO steam engine, so a diesel should be no problem. Of coarse you have to buy the right track, but LEGO does make it for some of the mine sets.

That Mk48 looks just like the real thing, it's superb. The real thing as a background is a nice touch

That looks like a very accurate model. I like the sideways Technic you used on the brown car.

Thank you very much for the nice comments! And it's great to read, you would like to visit the place and travel by the train! :) @Henrik H.: Yes, the colours you suggested are probably better, but I often need compromises, because of the costs.

Excellent job. Great parts usage for the design of your trucks and bolsters. Very true to narrow gauge. BOAJVWD.

Gorgeous build Gabor! Your use of yellow bars is perfect, and I really like the detailing of the grey bits over the wheels (sorry I don't know the proper term for train parts). Terrific job all around!

Wow, the likeness is striking! The locomotive is very good, but the open gondola car is really spot on, capturing many details of the original. For the closed wagon you should try with dark tan and dark Brown instead of tan. Also nice to read the description about this place in Hungary.

Wonderful build! I took a ride on one of those trains two years ago, and it was really lovely despite the cloudy and slightly wet weather. The boogie details are amazing, and the color scheme is very eye pleasing, brings back good memories...
