  1. Well just like anything that isn't used for awhile it needs some time to get used to moving again. Model railroaders call this "running in" where you run just the motor or just the locomotive for 30mins forwards and backwards. This should help A LOT! Good Luck -RailCo
  2. I know I may get shamed for this but I am actually wondering how authentic these are from what I have seen they are EXACT to the real thing. Yes I am a die-hard lego Fan and never buy knock-off but maybe if there is something cheap enough I would get it like the Porche model because although I wan the porche I would never pay $300 for it. Just curious -RailCo
  3. You can use some of them and build buffer stops on them instead of using a whole straight track length you can just tack on a flex track with a buffer on it! you can always use them to extend your layout to the very edges of your space and use them for gap fillers if you aren't worried about the looks. Also dr_spock that is a great idea to use them in a garden layout because who cares if they get damaged by weather ... no one really likes them too much anyway -RailCo
  4. Is it just me or does the dummy bogie look like it uses a red bogie plate or am I just imagining (hoping) things? These were only used on the 7750 and are very rare it would be very cool to have them back in red. I just want to say I will probably buy this train but the battery box and receiver look like s*** if you ask me the should have at least included stickers to cover those up. -RailCo
  5. As always an amazing review by you Jim! Now my patience for waiting for my package to arrive has decreased! I want it now ! Amazing pictures and detail as always. I love to read your reviews and they really help me make up my mind on whether to buy! Great Review! -RailCo P.S. when you first listed the contents of the box you flipped the motor and the battery box. The battery box should say "*[x1] Unsealed battery box" and then sealed for the motor you had written it the other way around. Just a side note
  6. I ordered the Claas it one my heart with the option for 3 steering configs and the option to make my own attachments even though I don't have many pieces. -RailCo
  7. Just ordered mine from S@H and already getting excited about getting it, I am sure I will be pleased with this set! -RailCo
  8. Man I wish the U.S. amazon or TRU etc. would have a sale when these immediately came out because I want to order it now but waiting for a sale to come to the U.S. like it did in Europe. May just order it anyway -RailCo If anyone knows of a small sale or a cheaper way to get one please let me know!
  9. Hello, I used to buy often from amazon UK and France to get better deals on Lego and other products but now I noticed that I can't any Lego from those international amazon sites I am wondering if anyone is having this problem or know why it's happening? Thanks -RailCo
  10. That's interesting but what I think is weird is that it is what looks to me like an exact color match -RailCo
  11. This is actually really cool! I never thought Lego could do this! Really cool and simple design that works extremely well! Well done! -RailCo
  12. Thank you all for great and quick replies! I know it's sometimes a difficult question to answer and that everyone has their own values and what they look for in a set but it really presents all different sides and views of a set that I may not have thought about before and gives me more to compare and decide on! Thank you so much -RailCo
  13. Hello Technic community I am still fairly new to the more modern style of Technic and since around 2003 the only technic set I have bought is the Mercedes Actros Truck (42043). I am curious to know what you would reccommend the Porche which is big looking and lacks powerfunctions and seems to be a bit pricy or the bucket wheel excavtor which is a great value and has many power functions features. I like both but I really cannot affort to buy both. Hoping you guys can help explain pros and cons and reccommend what you think is the better of the two and if I should get the porche now as it seems to be very popular. Thanks -RailCo
  14. As I am picking my jaw off the floor and cleaning up my drool haha this model is AMAZING I really like that you make trains for a bigger scale track (I am guessing G scale?)! Really shows what you can do with Lego. I am really impressed with another great model. I wish I had such wonderful skills to design such a great locomotive! Keep on Brickin' -RailCo
  15. Very amazing model! I really wish I could make such detailed models like this. Truly outstanding I hope when you say your last for now you mean you will make more amazing trains in the future! Great Job! -RailCo
