  1. A few US american guys back in 2017 also posted about their solution with ball bearings: https://brickmodelrailroader.com/index.php/2017/01/21/keeping-it-rolling-smoothly/

    Bahnbetriebswerk NeuKirche.

    Hi Enrico, a very nice Layout! Just a short remark from my side: The correct abbreviation for “Bahbetriebswerk” is “Bw”, not “bhw”. https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahnbetriebswerk Cu Carsten

    Is 8w or 9w closer to minifigure scale?

    Let me add, that building in an uneven width (e.g. 7 or 9 studs) seems to be more challenges according to some famous Lego train guys, e.g. Holger Matthes - take a look at his nice book: https://www.amazon.com/-/de/dp/1593278195/ref=sr_1_1?__mk_de_DE=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&keywords=The+Lego+Trains+Book&qid=1579858035&sr=8-1 Or his VT 11.5: https://www.holgermatthes.de/bricks/en/vt-11-5-tee.php

    Side rods on small BigBenBricks wheels

    Hi, this is what I did years ago: http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/42442
  5. Yes, this train company is called “Metronom” and mainly runs trains in the area between Hamburg, Hannover and Lüneburg. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metronom_Eisenbahngesellschaft

    Lego MOC Wooden Gondola

    Very nice! In which original set where the wood pattern tiles used?
  7. Looks similar to my (yet unfinished) attempt to model the famous DB 103 in 8 wide ;)

    Hi, a very nice build! If you are looking for more british prototypes I can recommend you the YouTube Channel of Chris Eden-Green. The guys looks like beeing stuck in the 1970ies but makes very informative Videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/ChristheXelent KR CaL

    Hi Davide, thanks for this video! Remembering seeing & riding on trains pulled by some of those type of small diesel engines on some European narrow gauge railroads I must admit that the speed to me seems to fully match my memories ;) Carsten
  11. Hi Martin, a very nice rendition of the original prototype! It was also my first choice to Build in Lego in 1996: http://bausteine-bahn.de/Dampfloks/da-frame.htm KR Carsten

    Hi, maybe you should give a buWizz a try! 1) It eliminates the IR receiver and gives you more space for additional gearing 2) If the gearing stays with the original gearing, you could run the buWizz in a high speed mode, which puts out higher voltage KR Carsten
  14. Hi, I have both, BuWizz and S-Brick. I can confirm the remarks about the BuWizz’s UI, but the advantages weigh way more higher! For S-Brick you need a battery box or the rechargeable battery, which in total consumes more space than a BuWizz. With BuWizz I powerfunctionized my old 12V TEE (=Set 7740) and because of the ludicrous mode it runs reasonably well. CU Carsten
  15. Hi, a nice and interesting solution! How does the charger unit look like? You should seek for help with the guys of 4Dbrix. They have a lot of experience in 3D-printing and electronics. Regards from Hamburg CaL
