    Damn! I need a longer kitchen table... Tracks for my upcoming Monorail Station. :-) Click here for a better resolution (Link to flickr)

    [MOC] Little Elephant

    A little elephant from Rüsselsheim - i've build some of it and combined with an invitation for a Zoo visit as Christmas gifts The MOC has 54 parts overall.

    Mmmhhh ...I think i don't do another Ninjago Monorail. But maybe you give yourself a try?!

    You have too much tyres on the axle. You have to use only 3 tyres. Second: replace the 6w cross axle above the tyres with a 2w peg/crossaxle connector (6562). Then it will work.

    if you post a photo, we can see wats probably going wrong. The design it self works seamless. I've used it on my trains also.

    Hi Masao! Welcome to Eurobricks. It's a honor to have you here at our little monorail thread and i'm looking forward to share thoughts about our constructions with you.

    I use the original design of Masao Hidaka. That works fine even on exhibitions. Here are Masaos video-instructions: End of September i was on Skærbæk Fanweekend. klemmbausteinlyrik and has done interviews with me. Maybe you are not able to understand german language but you can see my monorail in action. :-)

    I presented my monorail at Skaerbaek Fanweekend in Denmark last weekend. So much feedback and so much commendation on my work and the RaspberryPi controlled switchpoints. It was so crazy overwhelming. I'm totally flashed. Thank you to all who visited me in Skaerbaek! By the way: The trains where runnning two and an half days without any problems but changing batteries all 3,5 hours. Remote controlling the switchpoints via WiFi from Trigger-Shed works seamless. I have also demonstrated the new designed components: Y-switchpoint, crossing and the trigger-rail. All works fine and if i find the time i'll build it in LDD. I'm sure Dave will then made new building instructions for you. But just be patient with me...

    Hi David, there are a few issues to solve, but when the switches are working really properly ans have a stable construction i'll send you the LDD files. By the way: Snottingen Monorail goes to Skaerbaek Fanweekend 29th an 30th of September. I hope to see some of you in Denmark! Just follow the yellow tracks he he ...

    Today i've tested the new remote switchboard. Who can find the 5 raspberrys on the picture? ;-) The buzzer on the switchboard turns both cross-switches simultaneously in straight position. You can also see two new type of switch points i've made in the last months: A crossing (in the middle of the picture) including trigger switches for automatically turn the rail in correct direction when a train wants to go over. The remaining 3 PF outputs are configured for hosting further switch points, so the crossing is a 3-port signal box also. Second i have made a double-curve switch point. (lower middle of the picture) The point of interest on this switch point is a piece of track wich is able to bend in both directions.

    Because my switch-points are controlled by RaspberryPi systems they are also able to receive commands via wifi network. So i've started building my personal "world domination console". And YES! I have also build trigger rails you can connect to the little shed with a RaspberryPi inside. Meanwhile my whole monorail-system consists of 5 Raspberry's ( three Zeros WH and two model b+ with usb wifi) communicating to each other over TCP/IP. Using RaspberryPi's is much more flexible and cheaper then using LEGO's NXT system.

    Getting in the same trouble during my display last month i've also have redesigned the motor carriage. In a first attempt i have simply build clamps around the old design wich results in a little bit tubby carriage. But this solution is tested an runs more than 4 hrs without any maintanance. Disadvantage is, the the space between the gearwheels don't have the 100% correct distance and this leads to a slightly jamming behavior. I'm convinced that the incorrect distance was the core problem of the older constructions leading to pushing the bricks apart. BUT IT WORKS in long runs and you can also use a M-Motor instead of a XL-Type. Using the M-Motor will multiply the driving speed by two but reduce the power for climbing on solped tracks. ;-) See attached some pictures and a link to a LDD File. :-) LDD File

    Thank you David for publishing these wonderful instructions. As usual any building instruction is a noncommittal recommendation and not a "must do". Indeed you can chose the colors as you want or parts are available at bricklink and other sources.

    I've just finished the little movie showing the track layout in action. You can find it on flickr. Link to my Monorail album (you can find the movie at the very last end)
