    Yes! What great thinking! Retrofitting old locos should be possible when you account for the extra free space once the PF receiver is removed. I mean two hubs in the same loco should be possible.

    What is concerning me is that they say that you can have two motors or one motor with a set of lights. How are we going to be able to run two motors and lights like my modified HE or 7939? No mention of any additional adapter cables only the light set.

    Yes! Finally! Just click here to see the page on Promobricks. Worryingly, it does say that the Bluetooth technology is not compatible with older train products. Big concern for me as I'm so heavily invested in PF1.

    There is a project to recreate a Baby Deltic in the works right now. They are using a donor class 37 and heavily modifying it. Looks good so far from what I have seen in person. http://www.thebabydelticproject.co.uk/ It's being built at Barrow Hill Roundhouse, about 15 minutes drive from my house!

    OK, maybe not the eurostar. But it certainly does have the side grilles all along the sides. The Class 43 however, I stand by my remarks. Valenta FTW!

    A lot of diesel trains have these grilles on the sides. Take the class 43 HST from the UK for instance, or the Eurostar, or the TGV. They all have side ventilation grilles for the diesel engines. Personally I like the styling. I'm getting a mix of class 43 and eurostar from 60197. I will have to have two of these for sure. Although I might have to have one and my little boy may have to have the other!

    You get two right doors and one left, all with glass in set 60154.
  8. Thank you! This has been driving me crazy for ages as I tried to figure it out based on descriptions. I will get this built in short order whilst I look for a second 10233 HE set! Thanks again for updating the images!
  9. Hi Guys, Longtime lurker, first time poster! I have seen an old topic here that describes a method of adding a fast on/off roof switch to the Horizon Express. Only issue is, the images in that post are no longer working, so I'm a bit stuck. I got the set for Christmas last year (Came back to Lego train too late for the release! Expensive!) and am keen to modify it so my 3 year old can turn it on and off easier. He loves playing with the Lego trains in the attic but he does struggle a bit with the 10233 roof to access the power button. Any advice at all, or those original images, would be very much appreciated! Kind regards and many thanks!

    That's an awesome layout! I don't have the space like that but I do need some curves in a bigger radius like that though. The standard Lego curves send the Horizon express flying off the track at not even full speed! I want to have a high speed loop around the attic, but standard stuff just won't do. This track looks promising though. Any way to get it in the UK for a reasonable price?

    I hope not! I have a lot of money invested in this system, so I'm hoping for some kind of backwards compatibility.

    I haven't seen any of the new pictures from the toy fair yet, but I think you could be on to something here. They may have had to design the models around the old PF kit with wiggle room to move to the new PF components with as few changes as possible.

    Thanks! I really like the style! My little boy has been asking me to make a train with the orange helicopter canopy for ages now. Your pictures have inspired me, so thank you for that. Now I actually have to build the thing! I have ordered parts for 2, 6 wide petrol tankers this month so won't be able to do another Bricklink raid for a while. Gotta save up, then I'll do a MOC based on this.

    I have quite a few of the 2014 Arctic sets broken down, including one of that helicopter canopy! This MOC is perfect fit what I had in mind for it all! Is there an LDD file or similar for this that you'd make available? I'd love to see how it's put together. It looks fresh in the arctic orange!

    This! My kid hates the motorised trains. I spent ages adding another motor to his 60052 and now he doesn't play with it. He asked me the other day to take the motors out. All he likes to do is get a big line of trucks and coaches, hook up a steam engine and push them by hand. Loves pushing them! Hates the motors! Give kids the option instead of only expensive starter sets with buildings and track side structures they won't build or use (Our cranes for 7939 and 60052 sit un-built in the original bags right now). Give them cheap and simple and they will come in droves.
