  1. PF powered wagon

    @kieran Ive had no weight issues. The wagon has the traction and strength to push the Ruby Night. Ive not done a complete weight test yet @legobanker No requirement yet for double power yet. my next project will get rid of the standard train power motor and I will try to fit a medium motor into the same space. I think the biggest challenge is going to be fitting all the cables in
  2. Small layout on a door

    nice use of space. Im sure you've tried it already but it looks like you have space on the width and depth for a few flexi pieces. This might allow for the passing on corners
  3. PF powered wagon

    hello decided to start my BR Class 08 project and when sourcing parts I came across my PF powered wagon. I am planning in putting all the PF components into the Class 08 body, but having this push it around might be a good option while I sort out the mechanics for the 6 wheels. (PF train motor only has 4 wheels) Anyways for anyone interested heres my PF wagon and pushing my "Ruby Night"

  5. Lego APT with passive tilt MOC

    @Stefaneris in the above bogie pictures you can see that each carriage is only every controlled by 1 bogie. if 2 bogies try to push the same carriage it will buckle on points and s-bends.
  6. Lego APT with passive tilt MOC

    thanks for the kind words. @icemoronsIve not done a speed test yet with and without the tilt. I should be able to easily disable the tilt and make the carriages static. I'll see if I have time today.. not sure Lego fits in with Mothers Day in our house ;-) If not, sometime this week. I'll upload a youtube clip. Who doesnt like Lego trains crashing? @JopieK @icemorons I wonder if the dizziness of the VR cam is what the actual passengers felt ;-)
  7. Lego APT with passive tilt MOC

    Hi Ive been following the forums for quite a while and wanted to show my latest finished project. I originally posted this on Lego Ideas about 2 years ago but since then made some improvements and also bought the parts to finish off the carriages and driving cars I have been working on this for about 3 years on and off with a lot of changes happening in the bogies to limit the drag round corners. Each carriage is on a rocker suspended between the bogies. The tilt is then provided by the bogie pushing the carriage underneath and titling it. The driving bogie is in the front power car and is also on a rocker, clipped to a 2x4 technic plate. This allows movement in all directions. i have uploaded some youtube videos of it in action Theres some improvements needed (better bogie to carriage fixing) and I need to make some InterCity decals for the power car and noses. These need to white so any advice on making these would be grateful. Time to move onto another project now.. Rich
