    Old / recent buffer beam compatibility

    I think you cannot use 29085c01 (new part that come with train 60197 ) image of part 29085c01 on Bricklink If you look the red mark, you will see that 91968C01 is "open" on top of image , the wheel can go inside like with old 12V train buffer If you need, I can test with 29085C01 and old 12V train wheel

    LEGO 10027 Train Shed help.

    On Bricklink the weight of the instruction is 122.11g;name=Train Engine Shed&amp;category=[Train][9V][World City]#T=S&amp;O={"ss":"CH","iconly":0}
  4. For my 12V trains, I'm using "Helavia A5" in grey color. Which look the same as original LEGO. I don't know how to explain what is it in English, you can have an idea on this website: I buy the same but in grey which match the original LEGO light grey rubber The product code form the manufacturer (SES) is "0201 0007 013" The original rubber is ~5mm large , so with 35mm sleeve, you can make 6-7 train rubber If we look the price that I found online in RS-Online website, 1 train rubber will cost ~ 0.033 EUR (for 6 rubbers by sleeve) The hard part, is for cutting the rubber. Using scissor or cutter is not a good idea, the rubber will not be cut regularly. For cutting it, I used a Metal lathe with a precision knife. It's difficult to explain, if someone want, I can do a video next time I'm doing it.

    It will be cool if you can try to shutdown the remote or go out if range when the train is running So we can know if PU have a watchdog that stop the motor when out of range.

    I think it's not exact, (but,maybe I'm wrong..) When Sariel test the range, he used the LEGO Boost motor. With this motor, the remote need to send "run command" continuously (when he release to button, the motor stop) So , if the motor is out of range, he didn't receive "run command" so it stop. The train Motors eems not working the same way, when you press the button, the motor will increase or decrease it speed, and continue at this speed. So in theory (it need test to validate): if you are out of range, you cannot control the speed but the motor will continue to run Like with the PowerFunction 1.0 With Bluetooth BLE, the controller is connected to the receiver, and you can decide wthat you are doing if the connection is lose. With the SBrick (which use BLE too) they choose to add a Watchdog inside the receiver to stop the motors if it didns't receive commands for X milliseconds. To avoid your models are going out of control PS: sorry for my English...

    As you can see on this video , the buttons of the remote controller can be rotate (by 180° for sure) Both remote doesn't have the same button rotation
  9. The motor case is clued. You can view on pictures that the motor case have opening marks (when I buy it was already opened)
  10. I bought a small amount of 70 'train parts. The 4.5V engine (bb07) was inside, badly it was open I took the opportunity to take pictures. In bonus, the auction picture Can you guess why I clicked buy now for 25 €?

  13. From Wikipedia: Lego Produktion AG was founded in Switzerland in 1968. At the time, 30% of the world production of Lego was produced in Switzerland. They made LEGO Primo, LEGO Duplo, LEGO Technic, LEGO Bionicle. In 2002 the two factories were closed, the production was transfered to America,Hungary,Germany and Denmark.

  14. I'm happy that I can help :-) Sometimes, instructions and box doesn't correspond to LEGO inside. You can also have the same set (same number) with 2 differents instruction and inventory. Looking on catalogs and instructions can be not 100% correct, I think LEGO sets where build as toy and not "collecting Toy" so the look can be the same, but not the inventory. PS: I'm scanning some old catalogs '80 to '90, I will post a new thread when I'm ready to share the PDF, maybe it can help with you research.
