  1. I have been working on exactly this. It has taken a back seat to other things from my business such as instructions and getting injection molded accessories for custom minifigures done but the custom power pickup wheel sets will be next. I discussed this with Michael Gale last year at BrickWorld and he thought it was great as it provides another option and doesn't clash with his product. If you want to see more.

    Anyone having BMR order issues?

    The "team" is now just a one man operation and like other shop owners, including myself, work full time. However, 6-8 weeks without any correspondence is pretty rough...

    Thank you! I believe the dual IR receivers was due to them not being the V2 IR receivers. The V2 IR receivers can withstand the higher current draw of the two L motors. I personally don't use the IR receivers as I prefer the Sbrick. - Jeffery

    The difference shouldn't be that noticeable. I've been using the opposing L motors in a few engines of my own with zero issues. - Jeffery
  5. Can you host them on Imgur? That picture is maybe 100 pixels by 60 pixels.

    [moc] ATSF 4-6-4 #3460 Blue Goose

    That's pretty well done! Proportions look pretty good. Unfortunately, I think the coloring is pretty far off... the top half of the engine was not a grey color like you have. Looks almost like a "grey goose" I'd encourage you to re-do the top half in a closer matched color. This engine is on my list to do as a personal build so I'm happy to see someone has attempted it. As for the hose bending in studio: it has gotten better. With the large amount of clips you have on the model, it makes it easier as it allows you to rotate and move nodes in the hose using arrow keys and WASD, respectively.
  7. Oh come on. Ugh. Maybe we'll have them by the end of the year :(
  8. About a week away from deliveries being started. Any updates on this?
  9. Do we have any updates on designs for ballasting the switches? -Jeff

    Looks like an interesting rabbit hole to go down this afternoon! I do think this ends on it being a 32bit application issue though. -Jeff

    Thank you for that bit of information. Sadly, didn't work for me. Apple has killed support for 32 bit applications as of recent so BlueBrick still won't run.

  12. I've been working on a DIY power pickup that I plan on offering on my site. Based on the design shown by another member here. DIY Power Pickups by Jeffinslaw, on Flickr Should have them available very soon. - Jeff
  13. Not sure if Michael Gale is looking but having an issue ordering from his site... getting a message stating: "This order can’t be shipped to the address you entered. Review your address to ensure that all fields have been entered correctly and try again." Have ordered from him in the past so idk what's up. -Jeff
  14. Alright... it's the middle of January, when do we get to start preordering?? :D
  15. Looks like prices were posted incorrectly. The smart bogie was expected to be priced around $100. Michael Gale never specified a price for the switches but said it would be “much less than $100.” - Jeff
