    How's the ID implemented in the hardware? What's needed to set it up, and what (possibly, maybe that's too far-fetched) would be needed to allow the conversion cable to have "switchable" ID numbers?

    That doesn't sound bad though :) I wonder what they meant by engine. To me, as non-english speaking person it might mean just motor...

    Got a question regarding stacking of the connectors. Now, I'm not that proficient in electronics, so bear with me:). My understanding is that stacking only makes sense (in context of train motors), if the motor driver is capable of sourcing more current than the motor draws. Otherwise, stacking more than one motor won't give us more power, because we hit the limit of current it can get, right? Given that - would using train motor powerful enough to consume whatever it can get from the hub, gives us same benefit as stacking more than one motor? Also - without knowing exact characteristic of those components, we can't say for sure that lacking the ability to stack is really hindering, am I correct?

    Been wondering that too. After all, their prices are quite high compared toothed retailers, so they difference surely is enough for such service.

    This. It was mentioned once, then I don't recall it being reported. It's very unfortunate, had anyone made some measurements?
  6. Got me curious: given shipping costs - was it only for two parts? :) I haven't made yet any reasonably big MOC in my life, just gotta wonder how large percentage of costs are shipping costs...

    That's exactly what FAQ says.

    Looking at the hub electronics size, one can only imagine PF1 battery box could be smaller...but then this one would be bigger and there would be complaints. Now that's great planning ahead :)

    Introducing Brick Train Depot

    Good idea with bricklink lists. Although sometimes when checking pages like this I wish I could check parts before buying instructions, just to see how pricey is gonna be. Understandable that bsx is available after purchase though...

    But you don't select channel, instead you "pair" the controller to hub. And I think you can't pair it with two hubs...

    Maybe the only reason is to control what's plugged to the A and B indeed looks bit unfortunate.

    Any idea what's the height of the new hub compared to old battyery box? It shouldn't be taller, because the plugs are on the side, but I just wonder how it compares exactly.

    convert 9v to power functions

    Indeed! I find it suprisingly nice, that the current (60051) passenger train rear wagon just "pretends" to be an engine. If my boy (same age) wants to play with it (and he likes to play without motor) I just give him the unit without "motorized" locomotive, and that's it:) And the 4564 I wanted to rebuild for PF - it's still motorless and he likes it that way too :)

    60154 + 4564 = 37?

    This is what I miss here from time to time - a "Lego way" (combine what you have) with an attempt to answer a question "what would an X engine look if designed not in "model" scale, but in a standard more "toyish" scale. So bring it on! And this one turn out pretty great. Of course it's now tempting to fix some bits by adding pieces that were not in original sets, but it's a great base for experiments!

    And imagine just how much more interesting (and informative for YT viewers who don't follow/don't know other sites) such video would be!
