    Great work!

    BrickTracks: R104 Switch Kickstarter is LIVE!

    I'm a big fan of the plastic tracks and want better switches, so I supported your project with 2x left and 2x right switches.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Lepin can't do an exact copy from a few leaked images. They need the manual. Nobody wants the low quality Lepin stuff, at least in Europe, unless Lego doesn't satisfy the demand. Lego should be lucky there is no serious competition yet. Modulars based on MOCs, decent-quality bricks and a website that's not as embarrassing as this one and Lego is in serious troubles.

    Fixing the Wiener Linien Tramway

    I've bought them one after the other within the last two years and built all except the Ringtram. Not all of them are motorized yet because I'm waiting for the new Powered Up components that do not require the ugly IR receiver. If anyone needs PF train motors: The Munich Pasing Lego store still has them in stock, the Vienna Donaucenter and Berlin stores don't. I bought my last PF train motors last week in Munich, now I have a motor for each receiver. All my future purchases will be PU.

    Fixing the Wiener Linien Tramway

    I'll come. I'm on holidays, so I'm flexible regarding date&time. These are the other sets I've bought so far:

    Fixing the Wiener Linien Tramway

    When is this meeting? Or if its just you & me or three of us, send me a personal message. Btw, are there Lego fan meetings in Linz? It would be nice if there's a Lego-only solution, but the model has so many issues that I think it will need a complete redesign to get a good solution. I fixed it the easy way. ;-)

    Powered Up FAQ and Community Wishes

    Of course they have over-current protection, it's a must-have for toys. Nevertheless I guess they want to keep the system simple - one sensor/motor per port - unless the wire protocol actually supports multiple sensors per port. I didn't study the technical details yet, but I doubt it does. It's easy to solder a splitter yourself, so it's not a big issue if Lego doesn't sell it.

    Powered Up FAQ and Community Wishes

    I doubt there will be splitter cables. They certainly want to prevent children from connecting too many devices to a hub. Another question is if a splitter cable would allow to connect multiple sensors. If no, they would never sell such a splitter cable to avoid confusion.

    2018 Lego Trains

    I had a look at the Powered Up Android App today. It was developed with Unity, a cross platform game engine. The APK includes the Unity runtime, which explains the file size. I've unpacked the app and took a look at the embedded images. Besides images of the train battery box, the Boost Move Hub and the WeDo Hub, there is a Duplo motor image, too. Is Duplo also part of Powered Up?

    Powered Up FAQ and Community Wishes

    Will it be possible to pair a controller with two receivers for multi-engine trains?

    It takes 136 MB on my Android device.

    Powered Up - A tear down...

    Good to see there is no complicated logic inside the motor. Swapping M1 and M2 should change the polarity of the motor. Hopefully a controller can be paired with two receivers. Otherwise running long trains will become a problem. Has anybody tried it?

    BrickTracks: different curves, PF/9V compatible

    Just put a few items in the cart and noticed that shipping is rather expensive and the shipping costs increase with each added item.

    2018 Lego Trains

    Are there any leaks what set 60199 will be? Does Lego skip the number? It was mentioned before there that it will not be a City station, which sounds reasonable, taking the Winter Village station and Harry Potter stations into account.
