    LEGO #21344 - Orient Express

    @Shiva I used the regular 2-port city Hub and one L motor. I recommend following @Train of Thought Creations ‘s MOD instructions! I deviated a bit and added a 2x6x2! Weight Brick directly over the drivers for added traction.

    @Train of Thought Creations I used a similar MOD with L motor in the engine boiler, and It can reliably pull 4 coaches (w/ all plastic wheelsets!): https://flic.kr/p/2pjJJWj

    Try typing the loco name + lego into google? See if someone already built one? Also try Flickr, theres some great work over there too! Dont forget to cite your source(s)

    We deserved at least a hand crank like the oversized Hogwarts Express

    I never thought that adding an extra coach to the rake would involve so much “rake stepping” lmao

    Safety is very mutch tied to cost. You can’t payback the investors if you owe a settlement to the consumers… So, its def cheaper for TLG to have battery ops versus wall powered track. The States ironically has higher standards for electrical safety than educational standards. Thats why we never got 12v trains like in Europe. Go figure.

    I just watched that speed build video, and the boiler is definitely wide enough to have accommodated an L or M motor…

    @Lyichir Make no mistake; I would love it if TLG did warm gold… but considering that the 1x3x3 window already comes in flamin Orange and is already in sets released this year… its not likely. Its hard to tell if the original leaks (which look more flamin Orange) or these newer pics (which look warm gold) are correct…

    @R0Sch what makes you so sure? I imagine Flamin Orange is cheaper to produce in the long run…

    @ToledoRails well now I definitely want to modify mine to better resemble a P8 even if that wasn’t the actual inspiration source. Thanks!

    Any tips on 3D printing train parts?

    @dr_spock What's a good introductory printer? My CAD abilities are rusty tbh...

    Thanks @Glenn Holland y @ToledoRails for that video! . There is a way that would make this set redeemable in my mind— What if both of the coaches have alternate builds a la the classic Super Chief coaches? That would instantly double the value of this set and make for an easy justification to buy a 2nd set! Then, with 2x worth of engine& tender parts you could make just about any wheel arrangement you like that suits your needs/ region…

    “Everything's not awesome Everything's not cool I am so depressed” . But on the other hand, yeah I’ll prob still buy itttttt thoo0 #dopaminerush . @LordsofMedieval is right imho; TLG *could* have done better despite the design constraints in regards to the engine. How does the tender (which has always been either an omission or an afterthought) look better than the engine? . @Lyichir is also right that this forum is not the space to have über heated arguments over TLG’s decisions that hurt all of us mentally & financially.
