    Dystopian City with Monorail

    Saw this recently and thought it would be nice to share here: I love the concept of a dystopian city and it is executed really well here. Having a monorail as a central component tying it all together is just the cherry on top. Note - this isn’t my work (I wish it was :) The creators appear to be a mother and son team call the “moctologists” - active on Instagram )

    @sed6 - they sent you that motor free right? Seems like you’re still ahead :)

    Lego 75955 Hogwarts Express

    Very nice design and a contender for the “ultimate” Hogwarts Express. I’m currently working on an 8 wide Venice Simplon Orient Express project and have been looking for an 8 wide steam loco design (since I have no experience at all with steam train MOCs). I don’t suppose you could be persuaded to share/sell your design so I could adapt it for that project?

    Powered Up FAQ and Community Wishes

    Thanks for sharing that - very interesting. The main feature I was hoping for from the new PU Bluetooth system was the ability to control multiple trains from a single PU controller - good to have that confirmed. If I recall correctly from @JopieK‘s cargo train review, there are 5 colour coded controller/receiver pairing options. Couple that with two channels per receiver and you should be able to control up to 10 trains with one controller if you want to

    Review 60198 Cargo Train (picture heavy!)

    Great review @JopieK - thanks for putting that together so quickly along with the powered up tear down in the other thread. The main thing I was curious about was how multiple trains would be controlled. Interesting to see that there appear to be 5 color coded receiver/controller pairing options that you can set from the receiver. I wonder - can you also do it the other way round from the controller? i.e. leave the receiver on one pairing color and change the controller to another - potentially allowing you to control multiple receivers with the same controller. Also interested to see the app that accompanies Powered Up but I guess we will have to wait for the full launch in August for that. In terms of Power Functions vs Powered Up - I will reserve judgement until we see the full set of Powered Up motors and connection options. 2 connections per receiver seems very limited - but hopefully they will resolve this somehow with splitter cables or something. Also really hoping there is some kind of Powered Up/Power Functions adapter cable.

    Yep - I was surprised they didn’t make the new Hogwarts Express a more complex D2C set. I’m ok with what they’re going to put out though (I will take that set as a base for expansion and MOCs) If only. That would be a dream crossover theme for most lego train fans

    Future Pirates Speculation

    Fair point, but I don’t think thats on the cards. It’s not a very active theme admittedly but there *are* still occasional sets that come out. Of course I’d love to see them go big with it again- with multiple waves etc, but if that’s at the expense of butchering the theme the same way they did with Castle and Nexo Knights, I’d rather stick with fewer sets. YMMV

    Very interesting - thanks for sharing that @Roebuck. For anyone that wants to skip to the trains bit - it’s the last 4 minutes of the interview. It basically confirms what people on here have been saying - the barrier with new Creator Expert trains is the size of the market for them. TLG clearly have a big enough market for regular city train releases every 4 years or so, but struggle to justify additional train sets outside of that. They were able to do it with the crossover appeal of the winter village train and look like they will have even bigger crossover appeal for the upcoming Hogwarts Express. I fear however that after this year’s bumper crop of new trains we will have a long wait in store for anything new again. We may get an Emerald Night re-release in the next couple of years (given how iconic it is) - but outside of that I can’t see what *new* set would fit their crossover appeal criteria. Thanks. If it’s anywhere near as thorough as that, it will be very useful.

    Future Pirates Speculation

    There are already pirate elements in a Big Bang theme (Ninjago). The new pirates theme should be brought back in its classic form (same as they should have done with castle). If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it...

    Amazing looking MOC - well done. Would be great to see it running

    When are you getting your review copy @JopieK and will you be getting both sets? I am particularly interested to find out how control of multiple PF2/PU devices will work - whether that can be done with the new Bluetooth remote or has to be done with an app. I can’t imagine they wouldn’t have implemented the ability to do this somehow. If you could also somehow do a performance test against the old PF train motor that would be great. I suspect they are identical with the only difference being the PF1 vs PF2 connector.

    It would make the cost of the set even higher if rechargeable PF components were included so I can understand them sticking with batteries. TLG may still produce a rechargeable version though (same as with the current PF1 battery box). This may even include more than 2 ports to differentiate it even further. I dread to think how much they would charge for that though - probably £60+

    Thanks for the explanation although my brain hurts after reading that lot. Really intrigued to to see it now after your description. I don’t suppose you could be persuaded to pull it out of storage so we can see it in action?

    Unauthorized selling of instructions for MOCs

    How about you explain it to your fellow EB forum members on here first? I can’t imagine what legitimate reason you could have had..

    I hate to ask, but why on earth did you feel the need to stuff 4 motors and 10 lights into a Horizon Express? :) Absolutely. They will alienate PF1 users if there isn’t some sort of solution to use old PF1 gear. The lack of controller backwards compatibility is understandable (you can’t expect them to support both Bluetooth and IR), but not making a simple adapter cable available would be inexcusable.
