First design attempt at a train station for Megalopolis.
About this creation



Megalopolis is the name of the microcity that I endeavor to build. (It is Greek for "big city" if you care.) It will be in the Shannonia scale. This is my first try at Lego after many, many years of absence from the hobby, so please be kind to me.


Anyway, since I am a train buff, I decided that Megalopolis needs a train station --- a BIG train station, worthy of a large city. Using LDD, this is my first attempt at it. It is inspired by big European train stations.


As you notice, I use grill tiles to represent multiple tracks. Each groove represents a single trackset, with the fatter "solid" areas between them representing platforms. The grooves are too big to be scale, but it is the look I am after here. Grills lined up like that give you the look of multiple, long (rail)lines.





This one is my very first attempt to see how the grooves would look representing tracks. It is an American-style suburban train station in double-track territory, inspired by New Jersey station architecture.


Please let me know what you think.


Incidentally, may I suggest a term for the scale we use here? Since "Micropolis scale" is taken for the larger scale standard, may I suggest we use "Nanopolis scale?" (Nano is the next smaller prefix to Micro, in Physics. One micrometer is a millionth of a meter, one nanometer is a billionth.)
