  1. You truly are almighty, Arjen!!!
  2. Ha! I never thought of that before and your logic makes perfect sense. Indeed 32 doesn't divide into 3! I always figured that it was a software limitation with BB and I just lived with items not lining up properly. I now have to go play with BB and see if I can update my layout designs, Thanks for the tip!
  3. Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but, I was wondering if there are any updates to SBrick that haven't been reported here? Has the slider/stop issue been resolved? How is the performance with multiple bricks/trains running in one profile? Are many folks (apart from @zephyr1934 and the others mentioned in this thread) using an SBrick for controlling their trains (or any other part of their train layout)? I was thinking about purchasing a couple of them, but, considering their price, I wanted to get the "lay of the land" before committing.
  4. That is such a unique video!!! And I was wondering the same thing as Beck - did the cold temperature affect the train in any way?
  5. Yep, that portal window is spot on!
  6. Looks quite accurate. Well done!!!
  7. In one of your videos I seem to remember seeing some sensors being used. Are they still on the cards? Where I want to go with my layout you sort of alluded to in the following post: 12 volt-era equivalent parts is what I have been hoping/wishing for. I have started getting all the bits and pieces together to build up a 12-volt layout, but I soon found the cost of some of the parts to be prohibitive - and general life expenses getting in the way of a Lego train project (that's the wife talking!). There's also the risk of parts becoming more and more scarce and therefore even more expensive in the future. Your system has the potential of being better than the 12-volt system as we won't be as locked down as that system was by the fact that we can use controllers like Arduino. Also, nothing is stopping you from inventing various add-ons down the track (such as proximity sensors). We also get the added benefit of mobility with a tablet device (if wanted). De-couplers, switches, lights, motor controls - this is all going in a fantastic direction, and one appreciated by those of us that aren't as technically-minded as some of the other people on this forum.
  8. Well done!!! Looks awesome. Getting closer and closer to what I want/need for my layout. Keep up the great work!!!
  9. *Drool* Want this sooooooooooooo bad!!!
  10. Ahhhh, great idea! Didn't think of remote desktop as a solution to going mobile with this. The excuses to not buy this setup are quickly diminishing (although, I would still like the lights that have been posted earlier in this forum :hint :hint).
  11. Congratulations on the new website guys! As others have said, it would be great to get some instructions and/or some LXF files on the site to replicate some of the great MOC's that are out there, and, having a repository for the Railbricks magazines would be awesome (not sure if I grabbed the last couple). Keep up the great work, and, hopefully I can contribute something to the website myself in the future!
  12. Fantastic looking trains! I especially like the lights at the front - very clever!!!
  13. Upcoming Lego Train Set? Hardly!
  14. Very clever. Well done!
