    75955 Hogwarts Express Running Problems

    I ran into an issue with curves after motorizing the Hogwarts Express. My implementation has PF motor in the tender. Still, I needed to redesign the pilot truck with an additional 1/2 stud of offset toward the front to prevent binding on R40 curves.

    2019 LEGO Trains - 70424

    From the look of the piece, I'd say it's a re-railer. Something that kids can use to easily get the train onto the track, without needing to manually ensure that each wheelset is properly nestled between the rails.
  8. Very impressive coaster!

    [MOC] EMD F-unit and SW-1

    Nice job on the nose of the F unit. I especially like how you were able to get the windshield angles!
  10. What about an injection-molded 90 degree cross track? Edit: After thinking about it, and re-reading the above posts, I don't think this would require 5 molds...

    Resurrection of some old 12v tracks (powering new trains)

    @Unfinished_Projects For the reverse, couldn't you simply wire in an inexpensive DPDT (Double Pole Double Throw) switch in between the output of your transformer and the track? Run the transformer output to the center (input) contacts on the switch. Wire one set of outputs to the track feed wiring, and the other set of outputs to the same track feed wiring, but cross the polarity. Since the non-selected output of the DPDT switch has no internal connection, you'll avoid a short in your train feed wiring. I can't imagine the switch would be more than a couple dollars, and for the rest, you'd need just some wire, and your soldering skills. You might also need heat-shrink tubing, or electrical tape, to insulate any connections you make. This should be a great, inexpensive solution.
  12. @pagicence That's amazing work! Really nice job.

    Will there be a 2019 freight train?

    I was thinking about colors also. As far as I know, since 2006, they haven't released a locomotive in predominantly Purple, Brown, Grey, or Black. And in that time there have only been one each in Yellow and Orange: Green 2006 - 7898 Cargo Train Deluxe 2006 - 10173 Holiday Train 2009 - 10194 Emerald Night 2016 - 10254 Winter Holiday Train 2018 - 60198 Cargo Train Red 2007 - 10183 Hobby Trains 2010 - 7938 Passenger Train 2011 - 3677 Red Cargo Train 2015 - 60098 Heavy-Haul Train Blue 2011 - 10219 Maersk Container Train 2014 - 60052 Cargo Train 2018 - 60197 Passenger Train White 2006 - 7897 Passenger Train 2014 - 60051 High-Speed Passenger Train Yellow 2010 - 7939 Cargo Train Orange 2013 - 10233 Horizon Express Your guess is as good as mine, but I'd like to see any new train in an unused, or seldom released color.
