    DB 200 116

    Really nice locomotive. And if you're into running a danish Lego train layout, you could also use this locomotive (if you change the decals to 220). In 1980 DSB rented some BR 220's from DB. The ones running in Denmark was always run two-and-two - something about not being powerfull or reliable enough. I can't remember which.

    Just some 9v train automation with Mindstroms NXT 2.0

    I was thinking og controlling a 12V trainmotor from a PF IR sensor (and only giving the motor max 9V). But does anybody know if the PF IR v2 smooth out the PWM, and/or if the 12V train motors can handle PWM. Else I should put a low pass filter between the two.

    [MOC] 'Bricks Cross' - Train Station

    Nice build. Please post pictures where all sections are assembled. And as some other write: build it in real life.

    [MOC] BR24 (German standard steam locomotive)

    Wow. Very impressive. And it takes the curves without any problems.

    Union Pacific SD70ACe Heritage Fleet - 6 Locomotives!

    Wow. Impressive work. Nice locomotives. You run 24V on the tracks and use capacitors in the trains. Why? edit: I found earlier posts where you explained the 24V setup.

    Karlsruhe Tram (GT8-70D/N)

    Wow. Really neat tram. How long is the full model?

    BR 59-035

    Wow. Nice locomotive. And with all those wheels, it takes the curves/switches very well.

    [MOC] Small industrial area 70s era

    I like. Is it supposed to be build together with the habour? There's a Danish film called "Olsenbanden På Sporet" (The Olsen gang on tracks) - I come to think some scenes from this movie when I see your layout ;-)

    German Umbau carriages

    Wow. Nice wagons. When I see the the train I come to think about some pictures in a Märklin catalog.

    Nice building. I really like the way that you made the roof.

    Unfinished projects?

    Nice designs. I have not seen Electricsteam or Redimus way of solving it before.

    As I remember, with the old 12V motor you could use six wheels without problems. But besides designs where you have to cut in tecnichs pieces to fit extra wheels between the ones already on a PF-motor, I haven't seen locomotives with six wheels. And I think with that solution that the wheels sit too close to each other. I can see now that the shunter ScotNick shows has the third wheel pair on a separate boogie.

    Ok. If you use these, I could make them move sideways: But if I use these, as it looks like is on the picture of the shunter, isn't it hard to make them move sideways?:

    Does anybody know how well a six wheel locomotive like the shunter ScotNick shows will take curves and switches (standard Lego PF-tracks)?
