    Lego City 2023 Leaks, Rumours, Speculation And Discussion

    If that is correct, we would get a 2000+ parts set in city (60380)? I don’t remember seeing that… Would it be a single building, or something more like a town plan set?

    Lithium or alkaline?

    Allright. So I did a few more tests with different hub/motor/engines. So I turned back to power functions only to realise that the batteries would drain quite fast as well. So I doubled my motors and voilà!. My dual motor (power functions) moc cargo train ran for about 90 minutes. i tried the powered up setup in my older 60052 with nimh batteries and it wouldn’t pull the load. However, when coupled with a lighter load, i.e, two « standard » lego city wagon, it moved without problem, and went strong for over an hour before I stopped it. So, is my problem really the batteries, or is the PU motor simply not strong enough? Should it be strong enough to pull my 1.6kg load? I reach out to customer service and they agreed to replace my motor, no problem. I just don’t know at this point if I want to use the PU system or stick with PF, be it only for it ease of use.

    Lithium or alkaline?

    I did test the batteries. New ones show 1.56 to 1.68 volts, whereas spent ones fall at about 1.35 volts. So this morning, I tried again with new alkaline batteries from a fresh batch. The train ran for about 60 seconds at full power, then dropped to half speed. It eventually stopped dead after about 3 minutes of running time. The batteries tested after the train stopped still show over 1.5 volts for some reason. For reference, the train is a moc based on 10219 (6 wide), with 3 well cars. The engine weighs 605 grams, while the cars weighs 350 grams each. All together , the trains weighs 1.6 kg. It is motorized with 88009 hub and 88011 motor. I also checked to reduce friction as much as I could, but I can only do so much as I use Lego standard curve tracks. Would adding a motor to the engine help, or is it just a matter of power?

    Lithium or alkaline?

    Hello all! So this was probably answered before, but I can’t find a clear answer and I am still pretty confused. Today was the day I updated one of my trains (a moc) with a PU Hub and motor. The install went pretty smoothly, but I was only able to run it for about 10 minutes with 6x new alkaline batteries. After that, it simply died is place. I tried with another 6 new batteries, and got a similar outcome. So, I think the alkaline is not the way here, so what should I use, Li-Ion?, Ni-Mh?. Please note that I do not which to fiddle with the hub, I prefer to stick with standard sized AAA. Thank you!

    Tracks available on Pick & Build

    I ended up ordering two straights for fun, we’ll see what happens!
  7. Good day to all of you train lovers! I was just wondering: I’m I the only one that just noticed that you can now by tracks as a single item on Pick & Build, like any other item? All in canadian dollar: - Rail Straight 16M, 6070018, 1.70$ - Rail Curved 22 1/2 Deg. 4279717, 2.94$ - Switch Right, 6085188, 14.75$ - Switch Left, 6085213, 14,54$ - Control Switch 6163975, 0.61$ They also have the very useless flex rail, which is surprisingly expensive (1.02$ each). I didn’t try to buy them, but I wass able to add them to my bag. The only unanswered question I have is that next to the description of the straight rail it « use as a bundle ». What does that mean? I was able to had 1, 2 or 10 in my bag. As anyone ordered them like that? I find the price to be not too bad, as the cheapest « new » piece of track I could find on BL was 1.20$ (CAD) and it comes all the way from Turkey. However - and that is fine for me - the parts are all expensive, apart from the straight piece. Choo-choo.
