  1. @sed6 I absolutely love this build! I only have two minor suggestions: 1) Needs decals to finish the look! 2) Have you considered a brick-built cowcatcher? The official piece (imho) is better suited to the 4-4-0's and 4-6-0's from the mid 1800's. Other than my nitpicking, this is fantastic work!

    MOCer's will you buy the new train sets?

    @CrispyBassist Same here! i just want to fiddle around with the PF2 components already! It would be great if Lego released a promo video that showcases the PF2 components and any/all new features therein. What still baffles me is how TLG managed to make a worse-looking wave of trains when compared to the last two. However, in TLG's defense, there where the oddities in the 9V line as well. Just have a look at sets 4559 and 4561! These two sets tried to mesh freight and passenger service into one set, with hilariously bad results. So, maybe the first wave of PF2 train sets will be the ((wholly unnecessary)) oddities of their generation.) There is also another ((wildly speculative)) theory of mine, wherein those leaked images could be just a ruse by TLG to throw off those "other" clone brands... and the real train sets coming out later on actually look fantastic-- possibly better than 60098, 60052, and 60051...! but that's justa theory of mines...

    There better be! I'm still wondering how multiple items are going to connect in PF2, because with PF1 & 9V one can essentially stack the connectors to infinity.

    [MOC] Narrow Gauge & 9V

    Hello fellow train heads, Today I have for your viewing pleasure a 9V system that's been adapted for Lego narrow gauge (4 stud wide) track: NG: 9V shunter (3) by Nick Jackson, on Flickr Here's the engine up close: NG: 9V shunter (1) by Nick Jackson, on Flickr And the underside: NG: 9V shunter (2) by Nick Jackson, on Flickr Now here's a video of it in operation: NG: 9V shunter (vid 1) by Nick Jackson, on Flickr It's pretty finicky in operation at the moment, so I'm looking for your input on ways that I can improve this system! The two main areas that need help are 1) the engine's traction and 2) the electrical pickups. Thanks in advance for your help! ~Nick J~

    @ElectroDiva TLG could always rebrand/recolor the WV Station into HP's Hogsmeade Station....! hehe

    Wi-Charge

    My only concern with this is how it affects organic bodies? A disconcerting sign is that no one in either video is standing directly underneath the "light" during its operation... I'm mostly worried about people with pacemakers, people with metal limb replacement parts, and the select few that adorn tin-foil hats.... Although not having to change or charge the batteries in my trains? That's simply magnificent!!!

    My only hope would be that they do the set justice by having the train windows in dark red.

    [MOC] AGV High Speed Train

    lol, You didn't do anything wrong! I was just poking a bit of fun at the fact that the bogies use actual hatchets on them...!

    How much would people be willing to spend on a Creator Expert version of the Hogwarts Express....? -Around 100 usd, I'd imagine a set similar in size to the EN, -Around 200 to 300 usd, maybe 2 carriages and a loop of track, -Around 400 to 500 usd, 2-3 carriages + track loop + PF 2.0 + Hogsmeade Station (to tie in with the castle set) I'm not a HP fanboy, but am still a sucker for trains!

    [MOC] Lego BR class 08 diesel shunter

    On my Class 08, I was able to place the receiver at the very back of the hood, right where it meets the cab (which is also 7 studs wide): Class 08 (5) by Nick Jackson, on Flickr But really, it only trades one problem for another. The cab roof is all one piece, but now there's a 2 stud long break in the curvature of the hood.

    @ElectroDiva The roof is made out of semicircles of curved track combined with clear wall elements!! I think its one of the best uses of leftover curved rails to date.

    3RD party bendable track

    Maybe they got a bunch of those 7937 train station sets? But even so, there are only 8 of those per set...! Whew, talk about disposable income!

    2018 Lego Trains

    @Digger of Bricks That's a cool obseravtion!! Definitely has potential to be a set because it looks to be part of an action (chase sequence?) set piece. However, I'd hazard a guess that if Lego did make a set based on said sequence, they'd more than likely use the newer rollercoaster track system? The only problem I see is that the train seems to occupy both the top and bottom sides of the track-- either one train at the same time, or two trains going in different directions. How would you build support structures for such a railway, especially the lower portion? Also, if more of the action sequence is inside of the train, versus on top of it or around it, Lego will more likely go for the easier option of recreating the interior portion of the fight. Then, there's the possibility of them showcasing a depot/station where the sequence either begins or ends. But that's just my over-analysis of the scenes in question.
