  1. In the mean time, you have a stunning freight engine! What system is it powered with?

    What’s your Railway called?

    Is that a play on Norfolk & Western? I like it!

    Maybe that’s their strategy... 🙃

    Powered Up FAQ and Community Wishes

    The only thing I can think of using PoweredUp for now is steam engines with a 4-X-X or X-X-4 wheel arrangement, with the 4 being the motor and the Box/Reciever being in the tender.

    What’s your Railway called?

    Just wondering what the people on here called their Lego City/Railway Setup, and how it got that name. I’ll start ya off with mine, the Mid-Western Metropolitan Railway (MWMR). I live in the Mid West of the United States (the area in between the Mississippi, Missouri, and Ohio Rivers, for the most part). There isn’t really a “Mid-West-Centric” Railroad in the US, so the MWMR is my recollection for that fact. MWMR’s lines are, mostly, West of Pittsburgh, North of St. Louis, and East of Oklahoma City, but we do have trackage rights to Denver and Cheyenne via the Union Pacific, New Orleans, Dallas, and Houston via Kansas City Southern, and to New York and Philadelphia via Norfolk Southern. MWMR is the only Class 1 Railroad in the US to still use electric engines, and one of the few in the world, besides commuter line, to electrify via a third rail between the track (AKA, I run Lionel, too. 🙃). The MWMR’s official colors are Olive Green, Gold, and Black, and has the nickname “The Easy Route” fo two reasons: 1) The Railroad is able to bypass Chicago, meaning most routes avoid the traffic there unless they terminate there, and 2) There’s pretty much no mountains or obstacles to go around aside from Rivers. My City itself is called Submuloc, which is the semordnilap for Columbus, where I live. So what’s your Lego Railway called? And what City (fictional or not) are you modeling?

    2018 Lego Trains

    Has anyone retrofitted the Cargo Train with Power Functions? My plan it to use Powered Up for my Holiday Train and Power Functions for the Cargo, as Jang’s review made it seem like there was a fair amount of space available in the 2018 trains’ engines.

    BrickTracks: different curves, PF/9V compatible

    That could work 🙃 Later... 60 studs, so R56 and a flex track. Thanks!

    BrickTracks: different curves, PF/9V compatible

    Quick question (I might have asked this earlier but don't recall): In two corners of my layout, I've mixed straights and curves to make a rough but wider radius curve. It goes: R40 Curve Track Segment - 16 Stud Straight - R40 Curve Track Segment - R40 Curve Track Segment - 16 Stud Straight - R40 Curve Track Segment It seems to me that it'd be close to R72, but I may be wrong. Anyone know what would be the best fit?

    TBRR with full BrickTracks loops

    Wow. Now for some reason I want to see a picture/video of a circle/oval of LEGO R40, ME Models R56, R72, and R88, and BrickTracks R104 and R120, all inside of one another with trains zipping all around.

    Maybe they’re trying to incorporate both systems? Have the BT receiver+battery box for when PF2 comes out in a couple years, and current IR receiver for right now?
