    2019 LEGO Trains - 70424

    Yup, I keep that option in back of my head, don't have that huge plans for rolling stock to justify amounts/shipping overseas...

    That's what I'm waiting for. So annoyed that when bricklinking for train wheels you pay for three parts (wheel, enclosure and axle), and axle is quite pricey for a piece of metal... Curious how it's gonna look when they really introduce those changes .

    Train accessory idea

    Yeah, and knowing the kids are target for Lego, and considering how they lean towards smaller, 2 axle cars, it would make sense for it to not contain any bogie plates...

    Well, but now you've just showed the case when AFOL would be indeed interested in buying that set for parts - at least till it shows in other sets.

    Glad you've solved it! Would be a bummer to waste such circumstances (a free time without SO ;) ;) )

    Maybe it's for opening the front.

    Well, the "train folks" might not be their target. But if it doesn't sell well and they'll extrapolate it to trains then... Kind of catch-22. They say it's more likely for them to release train within some theme (as opposed to standalone) to have greater reach, but then - does it really work?

    The train would make perfect sense for "haunted" series, but it also makes sense in the context of the AR app - after all, PUP allows it to be controlled with the mobile. Not sure how much can be crammed at this price tag though.

    Lego train arduino (esp8266), power/

    That's very interesting! Making custom solution was always on my mind, especially because I'm interested in something that can give smaller form-factor (even at a price of capablilties). Could you post more details? Photos of the controller+motor driver and how it's all assembled would be great, schematics (informal, just a writeup on used components) would be awesome :)

    That's beautiful. I'm pretty sure everyone agree this deserves a thread on its own instead of being buried in here!
  11. This, plus PUP (to not have to swap the green parts with gray IR receiver) looks like a sweet upgrade I need to treat myself for the next christmas :) Maybe I should also look in advance for some cool wagons...

    LEGO 3677 lxf

    That might be a non-answer but I found its quite efficient to just import the set as the palette into the, and then build it from instructions:)

    Fully automated layout

    Oh my, that's the cleverness I'm missing in my attempts! But at least I know where to find people who know how to hack things! :)

    Oh man, this year I tried to make the bareers raised by string, I've failed miserably (was using cheap servo). Later on I've found out one could just use motor with technic gear with clutch, but I haven't yet tried that out. Seems it works well for you - is it easy to set it up/ adjust it? If I'm right, you need to power up the motor for certain period of time, and rely on gear clutch to keep the movement within range? Also - the switches. That looks awesome, am I right it doesn't require any part modification?

    LEGO Sci-Fi 2019 Pictures and Rumors

    Would be great to have this spaceship as depicted in that short movie. It fits me in terms of size (don't have the space for the (otherwise cool) spaceship from first movie, and the junior set is great, but too basic.
