    [WIP] Lego monorails. [Custom Rail Systems (CRS)]

    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)

    I have just published some new photos of my signal box and the monorail switchpoints on Flickr. There is also a new movie showing the switchpoints in action.

    [MOD] 31050 Corner Deli

    The Corner Deli is build from two 31050 Corner Deli sets with additional 282 parts (in 50 Lots). 35 parts are left over form the sets. As you can see on the photos, I have sockets below the modular house but you can put up the MOC on plain baseplate also. LDD file and partlist for the extra parts are available on my website. snottingen.de is in german language, but i'm sure you'll find the download links. It's also possible to build up the Deli on a 32x16 Baseplate for a smaller version without garden. Just leave off the stairs. You then need less extra parts. Find more photos on my Flickr pages.

    MOC Radio Snottingen

    Everything is awesome! … is not the only fafourite song at radio Snottingen running in heavy rotation. Nicole Schwatzinger (Nicole Talkative) moderates the breakfast show with the best hits and latest news from Snottingen and surroundings. Of course, there are also serious news from the newsroom with Klaus Kleewer and Gundi Grause. So the Snottingen public is always best informed, where just the next bag of flour falls over. Gossip from the streets on air ist provided by Linda Zackwasis. She has just grabbed Alice Finch in front of the radio station and "interrogate" her about her Super-MOCs. And then there's the tech troop. Notably Mike Faxflicker, technical manager. Ralf Donnerwetter, responsible for transmission technic, vehicle fleet and girl for everything. And last but not least trainee Tim Turnschuh (Tim Sneaker). They keep Radio-S technically running. As official cars Radio Snottingen has two classic cars from Hugo (the guy from the vintage car clinic). A fiery red old Rover and a old LMW-Flitz truck built in 1965. The LMW-Truck carrys the mobile transmission technic. Radio Snottingen is located in a nice old house built in the 1890th. A modern extension has been added to the house, which carries the entire transmission technology and houses the newsroom. A magnificent building on 48 x 32 studs. Everyone calls in gets directly connected to Sondra Kreischberger or Maifritt Killner. They two are "Chief on duty", Offroom and telephone hotline in one person and they are the secret bosses of radio snottingen. Their boss, Nick S. Zukamelle somehow tries to manage the whole bunch - which he does not always succeed. Keeping track of this totally crazy radio troupe is like watching fleas ... Statistics: Godfather for the station of course is the litte radio station from my hometown. Radio Snottingen has about 3,150 parts. I've created it at the end of last year. Find more pictures on flicker. Radio Snottingen can be seen live on the RHEIN-MAIN-STEIN Exhibition. June 9th to 10th 2018 in the Stadttheater Rüsselsheim , Germany. …and as always: I apologize for my horrible english.

    [MOC] The little Prince

    Playing around with LEGO-Spheres and a small sand green minifigure brings up the iconic book cover from Antoine De Saint-Exupéry's litte prince in my mind. What then follows was a "must build" The sticker on the minifigure is self-made using inkscape, (www.inkscape.org)

    I've build a train according to the motor boogie design of MonorailFan99. This train runs smooth in a 52cm circle. (96 Tiles 2x2). There is no noticeable speed difference between straights and the 52cm curve. ...and YES! Parts in the "correct" color are ordered already on BrickLink.
