  1. In Norway we have a saying that goes: "Smaken er som baken, minst delt i to" i.e. "taste is like your bottom, at least divided in two..." So much for that :-) I like the HE, especially when going fast through a curve at high speed. The EN is a beauty with more cars than 1 (I have 5 including a sleeping car and a goods car/post wagon), especially going slowly through a curve. 2x Maersk with many container cars is also nice to see. I really cannot decide which is best. I have to conclude that I like them all!
  2. I am also following this thread and it is indeed inspiring. I do know something about building a large model as I built the dream of my childhood; a large mountain with trains running at different levels. Your solution for shifting trains from level to level is a nice one, as the PF allows the trains to do return loops. I like it! The scenery of course makes a nice backdrop for the trains. Keep ut the good work!
  3. Great model! I like it! Special color scheme as well. Thanks for sharing!
  4. Hi, Only found out about this today - funded! I have posted the link to your campaign on our LUG Brikkelauget.no website, hopefully you will get some more that like plug and play hardware to control their creations. I have both the SBrick and the Buwizz and must say I am impressed with the possibility to use bluetooth from my mobile to control my trains. However, sound in addition is just fantastic! Hope this get funded. if not, I am more than willing to be a beta tester....... Cheers and good luck with the campaign!
  5. Nice MOC How does it tackle turns? could we see a picture of the underside? Thanks in advance
  6. I love this build, thanks for sharing!
  7. I like it! Nice backdrop for the engine too Could you share a picture of the bogies from underneath as well? Thanks for sharing
  8. Nice MOC, thanks for sharing!
  9. Nice execution to this shunter. I like the use of a rubber band to make it run. Thanks for the video!
  10. This has been done before with the "spear Method", using only Lego parts. A Lego spear fits in the little slot in the rail from the side, pushing the little spring-loaded switch point piece. I have built one with success using the servo motor, controlling it by PF.
  11. Hi Video can be found here. Mechanism built into the bogie in the Cargo loco from Lego: www.flickr.com/photos/115097068@N03/12108429763/ If you look around my Flickr you can also see a similar mechanism in a Class 8 shunter and my take on the Norwegian Diesel shunter Skd 226. At the very bottom I have also put a parts list for the bogie if you want to build it yourself as well as Pictures that should explain the features quite clearly. Thanks to Selander for the initial inspiration to develop my take on the mechanism.
  12. I like your big square and MODs of most of the modulars. Well done!
  13. Great collection and nice MOCs!
  14. Fantastic build, again! Thanks for sharing Looking forward to see this running with your locomotive(s)!
