    2018 Lego Trains

    In the USA, both 3677 and 60098 were exclusive to TRU, that's true. However, both sets were also available worldwide. I'd expect the same pattern would repeat, based on history and worldwide appetite. (of course, I have no proof)

    [MOC] The Dilapidated Caboose

    @koalayummies Love the concept and execution! I might use this as inspiration to build something similar for my railroad. Great job!

    Small layout on a door - six trains total

    @sed6 Really great update to the small layout! How did you assemble the monorail track? It's the curves I'm most interested in. Can you enlighten us, please?

    I hope this gets approved. I would ABSOLUTELY buy at least one! I also supported this set on Lego Ideas. So happy to see it reach 10000 votes!

    Replace Rubberband Treads on 9V Train Motors

    Thanks @Goldenmasamune and @peterab. I was able to find at Lowe's that the Danco #35 was an acceptable size, although just a slight bit larger in cross-section than the original. The increase in traction is amazing! 11/16ths outer diameter. 9/16ths inner diameter. 1/16th thickness. Sorry for kicking the old topic, btw.

    What an unusual inspiration. I really like the execution, you've captured the essence of the subject, without question! Great job!

    my moc train

    Very well done, @dario76
  11. Although I like the portholes, the reference image doesn't have them. If you're going for correctness, and cleanliness, sans portholes. If you want to break up those slab-looking sides, and don't place as much emphasis on correctness, then keep the portholes.

    Review 60198 Cargo Train (picture heavy!)

    @JopieK Thanks for the great review! Very thorough and well documented. I'm definitely going to purchase this set, perhaps even two before it disappears in 4 years, but will probably wait until I can find it discounted. The MSRP jumping $30 from 60052 / 60098 of $199 is ridiculous! That's 15% increase for essentially the same functionality and playability of either of the two previous freight train sets. I know there's development costs for PU, but I don't see any other reason for that level of increase, especially when you consider that the 60197 passenger train is just $10 more expensive than the predecessor 60051.

    Review 60198 Cargo Train (picture heavy!)

    That was also my first thought, as soon as I'd seen it abbreviated as PU!
