Rails on the Rockies 2013

Lester has outdone his organizing skills from previous years to make Rails on the Rockies a huge success! Multiple trains, a monorail and immense variety are the highlights the crowds are enjoying. Above, a speeding train passes by Lester’s multi-mechanical ATM installation while dinosaurs get their fill of java at the local Starbucks.

Inside the Battle for Hoth installation, Lester gets a train on the track.

The mulit-pod moonbase is a new addition this year, featuring bases from half a dozen builders. Ian’s mech moonbase sits next to Jim’s Brick Comic Network moonbase.

Figs that get hungry during the show are making their way over to Meghan’s Zombie restaurant for a unprecedented feast!

The sci-fi monorail section of the installation features various alien gardens with walkways, hover vehicles and various species of plant life featured in the images above and below.

Lester extends his thanks to all the participating builders this year. It’s certainly one of the best this venue has seen!

Samantha’s ice cream parlor highlights the latest Friends figures and colors!

The monorail track kind of meandered out of control from it’s spirals out over the moonbase layout.

Awesome details were displayed by all our builders. Duane’s Thinker sculpture sits in front of town structures by Sean and Stuart.

The Hoth Ice Cream Shop is by our youngest sponsored member, Asher, with help from Stuart.

Estes Park Showcase 2012

Returning to Estes Park, Rails in the Rockies for the second year, about thirteen active CoWLUG members pulled together an impressive town & train display featuring Mime Town – a concept build discussed at last year’s show. Along with the multiple new trains hitting the tracks, there was a lively, morphing harbor scene, a motion packed amusement park, a dinosaur and alien rampaged rural landscape and a mined mountain scene giving way to rural walking houses with pig passengers. Needless to say, all members and visitors in attendance had a spectacular time.

Both Samantha & Joel created some clever LEGO graffiti for the town.

Thanks to everyone who participated for all the dedicated work. Thank you to all our visitors & fans – you are what makes the show complete.
