    LEGO Trains 2022

    I was wondering the same... @JopieK? I know you're the train mod so I'm guessing you know the answer.... By the way I've added the new train to the first post.

    I think another level crossing and station are highly likely, this being the case. Did you not get 7938 from 2010? That had a brick built nose.

    We knew they'd retire following the pattern started in 2006, but possibly unlike some here I wasn't aware of quite when - so good to know the date. Also, for those interested, at least in the UK Main Square is on 30% off at Shop@Home, from £170 down to £119. If you want the tram and don't have it now may be the time - at retail it's heavily overpriced and isn't a particularly good set, so the tram is the only really desirable part.
  4. Yes - the wider the radius of a curve, the less likely derailing is. The chances of train derailing on Michael's future R156 curves will be insanely low. LEGO's R40 curves might as well have been made for derailments - you can't even take most official Lego trains around at speed without them derailing. Compare that to the grand curves on the PennLUG layout...

    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    My dream D2C set would be the Hogwarts Express, done in an expert style, with at least two coaches, and Hogsmeade or Kings Cross station. You could do something beautiful with those. I'm a train fan anyway, and knew that all previous ones have been very inaccurate, but seeing 5972 Olton Hall, known more often as Hogwarts Castle (or amongst British train fans, the Hall that thinks it's a Castle (2 GWR classes of steam locomotive were the Hall class, and the Castle, with each locomotive being named xxx Hall or xxx Castle) as just increased my anger. The Hogwarts Express deserves a better representation, and it's also a set from four years ago now. Also, the chances of a $469.99 Gringotts are very slim.

    [WIP] Lego monorails. [Custom Rail Systems (CRS)]

    I think that this is something worth noting - would be good if we could get a project through to 10k to show support for the monorail (though this one is suspended). 852 supporters in a period of 11 days is impressive. EDIT: It's now 1821 supporters

    Hadn't noticed that - Yes, I think that's definitely what we can expect. Two questions though: Is the high-speed train going to be a 60197 or 60051 type - one or two engines? And - what trackside feature and vehicle will we get with the cargo train? 2018 was a control tower and bank truck, 2015 a tower crane with a grab and backhoe which could be transported, 2014 a small truck and a larger overhead crane, 2011 a coal tipper and a road/rail vehicle (also transportable), and 2010 a more simple overhead crane and a container truck. I'd be interested to see what they come up with this time - every CITY freight train ever has had some form of crane, excluding 2011 unless you count that very basic thing at the back.

    Ah that makes more sense. VIP trains, when good, can be amazing - possibly the most impressive coach I've ever seen is Queen Victoria's official royal coach. However, I realise that there have been a lot of real-life VIP coaches - any would do. I like your idea for the train transporter - I actually once made one myself, using the 'Heavy Loader' set 7900. Just replace the four 8x16 panels for straight tracks. I've quite frequently heard of them being used to transport static steam locomotives. I also like the idea for a charter train, now knowing what it is - how about something like the American Freedom Train for the Bicentennial celebrations in 1976? Southern Pacific GS-4 4449 was painted specially for it in red, white, and blue - I could imagine something like that. All good ideas and I can imagine them making a level crossing as they'll want to make the most of those new road plates.

    I'm just going to break this down and give my opinion on each one. Diesel Shunter: I'd like a diesel shunter, and of these is probably one of the most likely - a cargo train that rather than a big locomotive as a much smaller one, and the kit has more than 2 switches maybe? Train Transporter: Interesting idea. Do you mean a train that can transport a train, or a lorry that can? I just see two things that LEGO might not like - the transporter would have to be eight wide which they don't like, and a train would contain two locomotives. It would also need a very strong crane to be able to move it. Train Station: We didn't get one in 2018, but hopefully we'll get one this year, having got many in previous years, dating back to c.1970. Train Workshop, Engine Shed: I'm gonna combine these two, as LEGO probably would. We've only ever got one of them, the World City one in 2003, but I think many would be in favour. Passenger Train: I can basically guarantee we'll get one this year. VIP Train: Do you mean one for the VIP program, or one to carry a VIP? VIP program: honestly not much they could do and probably wouldn't be brilliant. To carry a VIP: Love the idea. I've seen the Royal Trains at NRM York, and there are some absolute beauties there. I'd love one like Queen Victoria's coach. It would most likely only be an additional coach though, hooked on the end - I think many VIP trains are like this these days. Freight Train: Same as Passenger Train. Charter Train: Honestly idk what you mean by this - could somebody explain for me? Level Crossing: YES. We've only had rubbish mini ones since 2010. Unfortunately I think one is relatively unlikely... D2C Major Railway Station: I'd love one of these, as I'm sure most here would. However, the one in the brickLink Designer Program makes it unlikely in the near future at least. There's a nice one on IDEAS though. Steam Trains: Yes. Anything steam is always a bonus, since they are so rare - hopefully LEGO will finally give us another one soon. An EN type without any issues would be nice. I love all of your ideas, and I promise you I'm not trying to be rude at all. I'm just trying to think of what LEGO's thought process would be. On a different note, as I see you have only 19 posts at the time of writing this, a warm welcome to Eurobricks!

    10298 Vespa Scooter

    A small Creator Vespa, of the non 3-in-1 type similar to the New York Taxi, London Bus, High-Speed Train and Tuk-Tuk, has been spotted and posted on Brickset. Maybe this is a miniature version of the set to come? Either a Creator type set or maybe a GWP?

    Very nice! I particularly like the design of the cactus! How many parts is it total?

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    Should zoo happen, it would be probably a big set with maybe three enclosures and a zoo entrance, and then smaller sets each with one enclosure, or a feature such as an aquarium or reptile house. I'd love to see it but the chances are insanely slim.

    I totally agree. Having collected a lot when younger, and given a lot to my younger brother several years later, the box art is still very clear in my head. This is very similar to it. I also can't find any evidence to back up the idea that this might foreshadow something. Creator 3-in-1 trains have been released in 2008, 14, and 17, all steam, and bearing no relation to any expert sets either.
