The White Warehouse, 1971.
H0 scale model of The White Warehouse in Fåborg, Denmark.
About this creation
Since I build my local railway station, I have searched for a unique building to serve as a background for one of my H0 scaled train models. My choice fell upon The white Warehouse in Fåborg, a beautiful building, today serving as a nice restaurant at Fåborg harbor. The warehouse, the shunter engine and the railcars are supposed to look like what they did around 1971. In 1971 I was 10 years old. I spent a lot of my sparetime on the harbor of Fåborg, watching all the ships and trains . Always so much to see, and never boring.
Today there are no more rails left on the harbor area, but The White Warehouse is still there, now in form of a restaurant. Some of the facades have changed to get more light into the building, but the building is still easy recognizeable as the old white warehouse.

The shunter engine is a DSB shunter “tractor” build by A/S Frichs Maskinfabrik og Kedelsmedie, Århus, Denmark in 1955. serialno. 530.
The shunter engine doors was supposed to be green like the rest of the engine, but I think the lbg. ingot tiles actually suits the green well, so this way I avoided painting them. However, I painted a few other pieces, like the 1x1 round tiles, used for the buffers, and 1x1 round plates with hole, used for the base of the platform pillars.

For the finishing touches I`ve added some stickers too. I guess the beerwaggon wouldn`t be the same without the Carlsberg brand.

The railsection is built in small sections, 2 studs in length, and mounted on flexible wires to maintain the curve. The 1x2 plates along the edge allow a certain amount of flexing, enough for making a realistic curve.

The major challenge of this build was to do the curved areas. The rails follow the curved ramp of the loading platform of the warehouse.The warehouse platform uses the same, “brick bending technique”, for the edge, and fortunately it only leaves minor gaps in the platform floor.

Quoting The Actionfigure Very well done! It´s great, that you build just everything, even the rails! - And in a very difficult scale! I am tired of all those trains in minifigure scale!
Thank you very much! I really do enjoy modeling in H0 scale! A great thing about it is that it doesn`t take up so much space. Like you, I`m not too keen on Minifig scale trains either, because of the disproportionate relation between Figs and cars.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Magnificent work! I love how you curved the track and the warehouse platform. Pure genius! I love the use of the silver bars on the engine. Awesome!
Thank you Clayton, I`m glad you like it! The "silver" bars are actually dark bluish grey ones. Coming up with something that looked just a bit like driver rods for this little engine, wasn`t easy.

Quoting Oran Cruzen Excellent! Sorry but since my abilities to put it into words as great as D.H. did, I cannot help but repeat D.H.'s great comment: "Incredible! Either the awesome attention to detail and a beautiful accurate build or the curved technique would have been enough for a great MOC, but you did it all in one!! Bravo!" Congratulations Henrik!
Thank you very much Oran!

Quoting Allan Hall ecellent build, not just the curve's but the scale too. the more builds i see like this the more appeal they have.
Thank you Allan Hall! I really enjoy to build in this rather small scale. It`s big enough to add a fair amount of details, and less space demanding.

Quoting Per Bonde Hi Henrik. What a great build. So clean and visuel appealing. Being from Denmark I really love this. Haven't seen it in real life. But it is really 'danish'. Is the curving-technique one you have come up with your self? It is truly amazing. My final praise goes to the train and wagons. Your sense of details is one of the best I know of. And this build really show what a fantastic builder you are. Per, Denmark
Thank you so much for this great comment, Per! In case you didn`t notice there`s a link for a reference picture. I can`t take credit for the idea of putting LEGO pieces on a flexible wire or tube, but I haven`t seen it used for train tracks like mine.

Quoting jim mcdonough stunning !!!! this is really amazing work,the techniques you have used to build this right down to the tracks,how did you manage to use the pieces in that way,something most of us would never think off.like you say the grey splits up the green and still looks as if its right,building anything with a curve is challenging with lego but you have pulled it off perfectly.the truck is a nice touch also.stickers finish it off nicely, all in all its faultless,can see you adding to this in the future keep up the great work Henrik,
Thank you very much Jim! It`s always a pleasure reading your comments. I`m glad you like it. I`m sure more train stuff will be added in the future.

Quoting Gabor Horvath Wow my friend! What a crazy cool MOC! I really like the overall look of the small train cars and engine, but definitely the building is the best with its ingenious techniques! And especially at this small scale! Congratulations! :) And the horizontal white plate, where the two half of the roof meet, looks great, too!
Thank you so much for showing your enthusiasm. It`s a pleasure to have your comment!
