    You are right. But there are possibilities to lower that. Collective contracts. Suppose there’s a very good MOC model and a lot of Lego train hobbyists want to make it, you can make probably a profitable deal with Lego. As customer collective strategy. This is in my country a strategy for several issues.

    I ask it earlier, is Lego a maker of kits or of DIY building bricks? For train enthousiasts is it i.m.o. more important to have all the bricks in the different colors to assembly your own train models, and/or providers for instructions or complete train building kits. There are enough other ways to get nice Lego trains. You miss only the official card case of Lego. Is that a great problem?

    As OO gauge modeltrain enthousiast I think it’s more and more normal that new models were announced to build in the future, so you can pre-order them. When you think I wait for the real product, you are too late. The production quota are very, very limited. Perhaps Lego trains are no longer a product for children, and as special AFOL niche meets other trade laws.

    I changed the link. Now you can read the PDF file.

    Circuit Cubes

    Here’s a guideline to use the cubes in the LEGO crocodile. But this is the non Bluetooth version. The used motor is different. see: https://plaatjesvoorforum.files.wordpress.com/2021/10/crocodile_locomotive_10277_motorized_with_circuit_cubes-1.pdf

    Circuit Cubes

    Who has worked already with “circuit cubes” to motorize your locomotives? I understand there’s a Bluetooth version. In this movie you see two types of motor cubes. What is the difference? See:

    I changed my design a little bit. Now I used the driving rods of Trained Bricks. I downloaded them from their website, converted it in Parts Designer and imported it in Stud.io which of the two shall shall I upload to octraintober?

    You are right, the Croc is 7-wide. But my point was actually that for (most) MOCers a new Lego train kit is less important than for collectors and kit-build riders. The MOCer needs adequate building bricks, whether he/she prefer to build in 6-, 7- or 8-wide. And indeed the most of them prefer 8-wide.

    Yeah, like Märklin… Just another decal. And a higher price of 10% Yeah, like Märklin… Just another decal. And a higher price of 10%

    In the model train world you see three types of modellers: Collector, rider and builder. I think it’s the same in the Lego train scene. For the first a model is merely an exclusive object to show on a display. And of course an original Lego model. And where Lego make trains in limited editions, it’s fast an (expensive) collector’s item. To buy or sell for rather much money. The rider likes to run his stock. Trains, rails, remote control and motor must be simple work, even when Lego provide only a R40 curved track. The most of them build from an instruction and a standard Lego kit. Although some are satisfied with non Lego kits e.g. from Bluebrixx. While Lego makes their trains standard in 6 studs wide, for both, collectors and riders, it’s also their standard. New Lego kits are essential and highly wished. And better not in 7- or 8- studs wide. For the model builder at the other hand, Lego is merely a building material. They develop their own model, at best in a certain scale e.g. 1:45 or L-gauge. A standard Lego kit isn’t so important for them. Depending on the chosen scale they build in 6-, 7- and/or 8- studs wide. For them a ready to build Lego kit isn’t so important. They like to build their own MOC’s. Much more important is the possibility to can buy all the needed bricks in wished colors. And when Lego doesn’t provide it, they buy their stuff at small specialized firms.

    Well both are more or less prototypical. On details I can change some issues. I used my Hornby and Roco locos as a reference. But here are the real ones: BR Class 08 NS 600

    Thx! How? Where can I find the right URL?

    As said I am totally new. My reference is not any earlier model ever made, but the limited restrictions of the Lego bricks itself. Bricklink Studio gives me a great arsenal of possibilities like TinkerCad in the usual CAD world. As CAD designer the possibilities in my parametric design programs are much, much greater than in Bricklink Studio.

    No, I started with Lego a few weeks ago. I am still a rookie.
