  1. 2018 Lego Trains

    No, it's not the 2014's train front recolored. It's very round, no edges. Only one light. In the center below the front window, a 1x2 tile piece would fit there. It uses the same front window as the tram, from what I can tell. Yes, like in the diner modular. Very similar at least. The pictures aren't in good quality. //Edit: Now you've actually seen the pictures yourself, my comment is quite obsolete lol. But to me that's definitely the new color. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I've now seen the leaked images too and I have to say I'm very confused. The colors on the cargo train look super weird and the window looks like an upside down front window from the Santa Fe train. It looks nothing like 60052 and is a dual cab. A very ugly engine, in my opinion. Not liking it a bit. The passenger train looks like a blend between the previous white passenger train and the tram from the city center bus depot and tram set thing. It's main color is yellow. It looks super futuristic and I have to admit, it looks more interesting than the cargo train. I'm still not pumped about either. It's basically exactly like in the picture @grimrecka posted just earlier. More like a turquoise color.

    Amazing! This is soooo coool! Have you submitted this to Lego Ideas yet? If not you really should! What parts have you used for the bending-part?

    Yeah where's a video? :O I only know of the The Brick Show "video" where there is no real video at all, he's just talking.

    The cargo train does sound interesting indeed. I really liked the 60052 so I too don't mind a recolor of it. The cars sound good too and 5 Minifigs isn't bad for a City Train Set. Overall, 60052 was a great set so what gives? Already I'm not majorly interested in the passenger train. Passenger trains could be made so interesting, with twin deck cars and twin-cab engines but nooooo it has to be freakin high-speed-streamline-duplo-one-brick-crap. I can almost not express the dislike I have for these passenger trains. What remains is the 250€ set. But I don't want to get my hopes up.

    The suspense is real! The speculation is so much fun. Can't wait for Jan 31st :O But I don't want to get my hopes up too much. The cargo train, I'm sure, will be somewhat good. I don't think it will be nearly as good as 60052 but good nevertheless. Those never disappointed me before. The passenger train on the other hand... I hope to see something that isn't entirely made out of a single brick. If I wanted something like that I'd get a duplo train. A station is nice but I highly doubt Lego would offer two stations... so I don't think we'll get a "grand station" or something. I'd totally get one, but I don't think they're releasing two stations. I'm pretty sure this 250€ set isn't even a trains set.
  7. What's the current state of third party 9V?

    To be honest, after a while of research and thinking I came to the following conclusion: 9V is dead. If you want 9V track, buy genuine Lego 9V off of ebay or bricklink. 3rd party electric track has been absolutely poor both in sales and quality. A better way would be to develop a hybrid system, like @legoman666 said. One that runs of a rechargable battery which picks up energy from the track when it's running on 9V track and uses saved energy from the battery to run on plastic track - for which there is a great selection of amazing 3rd party track! In my opinion this is probably the best way forward.

    a 250€ shed? That'd better be a 7-8 track wide monster shed.
  9. 2018 Lego Trains

    Yeah... I wouldn't hold my breath on a creator expert train tbh. All the expert trains were numbered beginning with 1. I highly doubt Lego is going to change that now. It's really difficult to tell what that set it going to be but there's also a high chance, it will not be a train set at all! As far as I know, this mystery 250€ set isn't necessarily a train set.

    But I like the idea of the use of the new roller coaster track for a train of some sort. Maybe a fair-ground-narrow-gauge train or something idk... :D
  11. This is great! I really like the effort put into it. It would be really interesting to see if the vehicles behave differently if weight is added. Can you post more detailed pictures of the axles, so I can get an idea of how they work?
  12. Looking good so far. The roof looks a bit bland to me. I would add some Snot-Style skylights. That would also make it more interesting for people to look inside to see what's going on in the station.

    Hey at least we know for certain, we're getting a new passenger train! :O That's great news. Let's just hope it'll be a good one. I didn't like any of the passenger trains that were released after the Santa Fe. With the exception of the Expert Models of course.

    So to quote @Brick Lover 60197 will cost $149 and the 60198 is running at $249... How much did the Horizon Express cost at the time? Or the Emerald Night?

    That would be horrible. For my wallet.
