  1. Nice, really think that CNW should be on a certain layout....
  2. Layout: Train Layout of Patrick

    Wow, very nice. I'm always a fan of adding lights and I like the change of color for the street lights.
  3. 9v battery + PF wire?

    I wound you doing the similar but instead of a battery I connected to a wall wort. There are 4 wires in the PF connector and I connected the two right together and the two left ones. I believe the two inner wires power motors and the two outer are pass through.
  4. 2017 Lego Trains

    Electric frieght rules out the US. I suspect we will get a different color NA frieght with different cars that some will hate and others love. What about an Asian (Japan) electric frieght? Oh and some sort of high speed train with a complete nose cone in a color other than white. Generic enough guesses? :) P.S. I hope I'm wrong!
  5. Train towing ball alternatives needed

    What about ising the 2x2 modified plates with towballs (63082 and 15456)? I think there are some larger Technics/bionocle parts too.
  6. [MOC] EMD Model 40 switcher

    Wow... I need to study this on a real screen ( not my phone ). There seems so many ideas for PF drivetrains to take in.
  7. Another option that I have employed is to slant the baseplates the track is attached to, then it is linear all the way up the incline
  8. Long Trains.... Show 'm !

    Thanks! We were pushing the limits of both the train and the layout. "Gonna need a bigger layout..." as it was in 2 corners at the same time. If I convert (as @legoman666 wants me to) to using ball bearings in my axles, we can greatly increase the length one motor can pull. As it was it ran for probably an hour before dying.
  9. PF Receiver V1/V2

    Cheaper than designing new ones. If anything when Technics gets a refresh, the trains will to. We have not seen a Creator Expert train in years, so an update for trains is very doubtful. I'd look at PFx, Sbrick or the other replacements.
  10. As promised here is one short video of one of our member's bullet train going through the tracks: Also I took some pictures of ballasting the pieces. There is a slight color variation between these tracks and standard Dark Bley The rail profile is closer (if not the same) as the LEGO straight and curve track and not like the ME Models track.
  11. Long Trains.... Show 'm !

    Yea you can see them here: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=526065 There is also a .ldr file to build them :)
  12. I will be posting a video of our tests, hopefully later tonight.
  13. Long Trains.... Show 'm !

    Bumping this again, Here's our latest submission, 35.5 Feet (10.8 Meters) long and 60 cars. I should have filmed with my video car instead of my phone.
  14. Fort those who were not able to attend my presentation or BrickWorld Chicago 2017 in general, here are the PPT slides and my LDD files. http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/pirzyk/MOCs/Lighting/Roads/power_through_brick_built_roads.pptx http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/pirzyk/MOCs/Lighting/Roads/straight_road.lxf http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/pirzyk/MOCs/Lighting/Roads/wiring_loom.lxf
  15. Red Horizon Express 10233

    +1 And the station is nice too. Can't wait to see it once it opens to the minifigs.
