    I hear those things are awfully loud.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yes, love those. I also like a TV or radio station with a large antenna or flower shop. I couldn't CARE LESS ABOUT a hospital, bank, POLICE STATION, ETC... UGH, SORRY, I Installed THE public beta OF IOS ON MY IPAD. My keyboard just went haywire. I'm NOT RANDOMLY SHOUTING WORDS AT YOU... THERE ARE MANY OLD BUILDINGS WITH new businesses WHERE I LIVE. I UPDATED MY FIRE BRIGADE WITH A NEW FIRE TRUCK AND THREW THE LIMO FOR THE PC INTO PARTS.

    Dusting off a few old trains

    My wife and I just happened across your Sugar Cane Train video. Loved it. She wants me to build one now that it's no more. I never saw that Oahu engine run, but I always saw it sitting out by the highway. Anyway, if you're looking to give it a good home, we may be interested but you should probably hang on to that one.

    Dusting off a few old trains

    Wow. I moved away from Maui not long ago and had no idea you lived there. I bricklinked several trains together thinking I was probably the only one on the island with a love of Lego trains, never really saw much on Craigslist or anywhere else for that matter. Found my Super Chief engine on Kauai had it displayed on my wall. It's still full of red dust from the cane fields.
  5. I use the narrow, black picture shelves from Ikea. Track fits perfectly on them but the track is hidden behind the lip of the shelf, I like that. What I want to see is that Ghan engine. Any link to pictures of that? I want one.

    My early money is on a corner flowershop. Why else would we get a flower cart free in January, right???

    Love dark red and English steam. Well done! I want one for my railroad.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Same here. My minifig bin is a horror show of body parts. I usually don't even put them together just scrape them off the table when the building is done. I like my modulars up on an Ikea shelf out in the open air. They are pretty dusty from living in Hawaii for years but I can't begin to clean off all that red dust on the roof. I clean the front once in a while, get an idea and take one down and mod it, put up a billboard or a park once in a while. I don't think I can buy just one DO, it just doesn't seem complete on it's own. You win again, TLG.

    Hopefully they bury the molds for the IR receiver and the battery boxes beneath the parking lot, like they did with the monorail track.

    It'll never happen, but I'd love that. Of course, I'd never actually buy the interiors because I really only enjoy the exterior of the buildings.

    MOC: 31026 Alternate Build Modular Bike Shop

    Very nice! Maybe add something to the roof, like a billboard? Something to give it a little extra height. Are there stairs to the second floor? I'm not sure what you have left over from the original set but those are my thoughts if, maybe, you're willing to add stuff from outside the original set. I would have no problem putting that building on my modular street.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    1. Is the L in "POOL" a new tile piece? 2. Still no glass piece for those top arch windows? Ugh. 3. Please let the windows be printed. I don't need another Red Five X-Wing canopy disaster. 4. Love it, will buy it, will mod it at least a little.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The bar rumor specifically states it's not alcohol related... coffee, juice,etc.
  14. I'll be happy to see more, but I like it so far. Wanting a train for our Christmas tree is what brought me back to the hobby. I think this, more than most sets, would appeal to the majority in a family.

    2015 LEGO Trains?

    That's interesting. The silence from Grogall has been deafening. I did enjoy his leaks though, the buildup to the official release seemed more enjoyable then.
