  1. Just some 9v train automation with Mindstroms NXT 2.0

    Ow I didn't know that. Good to know!

    Yeah Arduino is much cheaper and you can do so much more with that. But I had already a Mindstorms NXT 2.0 laying around.. :) Maybe If I get this working on my bigger lauyout, I'll convert it later to Arduino..

    I've bought some cables to connect the Mindstorms controller directly to the track. That's something I'm going to try with my current train layout!
  4. Hi all, In January 2014 I build a small 9v LEGO train layout. I use Mindstorms nxt 2.0 to control the trains and switches. Now I’ve found this video, I’ve uploaded to my YouTube Channel. The layout works like this: 1. Both trains are running on the outer track. The nxt motor controls the big yellow button on the Speed Regulator. 2. Due to small differences in the train motor and the weight of the trains, the come closer to each other. 3. If the distance between the two trains is to small (less than 3 seconds, seen by the ultrasonic sensor), the last train drives to the inner track and stops over there for 10 seconds. A nxt motor switches the switch. 4. The train on the outer track keeps driving. 5. After 10 seconds the train on the inner track moves to the color sensor, just before the switch and stops. 6. If the train on the outer track passes the other switch (ultrasonic switch), the train on the inner track starts moving to the outer track. 7. Then it all starts over again. Let me know what you think about this layout! I’m also curious how you guys control your trains and switches. Any automation with Mindstorms?? 🚂
  5. Custom town vehicles MOCs (working photo's)

    I love the lowered T1 camper van!
  6. Volkswagen Beetle (Type 1)

    WOW! What a great MOC! I am a huge fan of the VW bugs (I own 2 bugs and a bus)! Now narrow the front beam and lower that bug! p.s. love to see a Super Beetle (1303) model, with the McPherson front suspension..
