    Rechargeable batteries for powered up hubs

    Eneloops are some of the best batteries and I’ve never had an issue charging them with the Panasonic smart charger they ship with. It shuts down when fully charged and does each cell individually. The mah is close to what they claim

    2018 Lego Trains

    Looks to be a switch and probably other circuitry to identify it as a light. Not sure if you can run it without it until someone gives it a shot.

    3D printed 7996 Double crossover track

    I lucked out and got a LEGO crossover for 20 bucks on eBay, it was sold as missing parts which was 2 yellow switches. Bought that as fast as I could. I recently bought a 3D printer as well and never thought about trying my own track parts. Might give it a shot

    2018 Lego Trains

    It will run on anything that has Apple iOS 10 or above. Which is iPhone 5 and up and tons of iPads one of which came out in 2012 so not sure what you are on about with only 2017.

    2018 Lego Trains

    I would like this as well, although I did snag one the other day on eBay for 20 bucks as the person didn’t know what they had.

    Changing the polarity of PowerFunction train motors

    I cut the wire as normally there is a ton left over in the cab so it helps hide and I flip the 2 middle wires to reverse polarity.

    60051 x2 motor placement

    I built an identical end to the main engine and have a battery box and motor on the other end. They are on the same channel so I just point it in the general direction of both and it works 95% of the time. I have 6 carriages and one club car so it’s a large train.
  8. Coaster isn’t with ME models, he owns brick tracks which is different from me models.
  9. I’m just getting the stickers from ministickers, far cheaper and look amazing.

    Paducah GP10 Locomotive

    Looks like a great start! I love GP10's so it will be great to see it done. Almost went to paducah for the eclipse a month ago, ended up going to hopkinsville instead though.

    Small LiPo battery question

    Anyone ever used a LiPo battery that wasn't the lego box? I've been looking for a small battery to fit in some MOC's and the battery box's are far too large. There are some smaller 7.4v batteries out there that might work and just wire on the lego plug to the receiver. Hoping others might have tried this and have a battery that is small and works well as there are tons out there.

    MOC: Amtrak AEM-7 and Amfleet Coach

    The last post was 2 years ago...... and why don't you make one instead of telling someone else to make one?

    LDD Cannot Access the Internet

    As a software dev myself, that isn't a thing and doesn't work that way.

    Is there a good way to "reverse" PF Train motors?

    I take the wire going to the motor and simply cut it and strip the wires and reverse the two inner wires and use heat shrink tubing to ensure its a good insulated connection. It frees up room in the trains since i dont need a polarity switch.

    PF train motor wiring question

    I bought a used set and the wiring on the train motor was ripped out it looks like, does anyone know where the wires went on the inside of the motor? I used my torx bit to take it apart but cant find a guide to which of the 4 wires go where. I see 2 contacts I can solder new wires onto but where do the other 2 connect?

    Help required with Rechargable Battery Packs

    Not without lots of modification to the battery pack as you would need to introduce a charging circuit with protection. If you aren't experienced in this I would suggest against it as exploding batteries aren't much fun.
