  1. Lego 60th Anniversary sets 2018

    I decided to contact Lego myself to see if they would give me thw same answer and this is what they sent me... Lego Customer Service by Rail Co, on Flickr Obviously Lego either has no idea what is going on with this promo, or they are made #xxxx till they felt like stopping. Disappointing to not even know... -RailCo
  2. I don't have access to my 12v motor right now but whenever I can get to it ill send over my data. Cool idea! -RailCo
  3. Lego 60th Anniversary sets 2018

    Well Lego seems to have lied about that... According to this listing they have a number that is greater than 5000. Either the Customer Service center got wrong information or they are trying to give out misinformation because they just made as many copies as they could... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lego-60th-Anniversary-House-4000028-5143-Sold-Out-Unopened-new-in-box/282841733371?hash=item41daae58fb:g:DDcAAOSwicpae4Qk -RailCo
  4. Lego 60th Anniversary sets 2018

    I am curious if anyone has gotten that free 60th anniversary booklet when you buy the 10715 Bricks on a roll set. I bought mine but the receipt is still being processed and it's been 6 days since I uploaded it. I was wondering if anyone else had luck with it. As for the exclusive limited edition "Throwback sets" I immediately bought the house because it looked similar to the original set, I was more excited after I bought it when I learned that they are individually numbered. The windmill I was reluctant to buy but I got it anyways today. The truck I WILL NOT be getting just because it doesn't even look vintage and even though they most likely couldn't reproduce the old wheels that would go on those small vehicles, at the very least they could have made the car wheels red like the used to be instead of grey wheels which didn't come out for a long while after those original style sets were made. Just my 2 cents -RailCo
  5. Lego 60th Anniversary sets 2018

    Can anyone tell me if they know whether the 10715 Bricks on a roll set is any different than the original that was released in Europe other than the new packaging? Also does anyone know when the throwback sets (windmill, house, and truck) are coming out? Thanks, -RailCo
  6. I would agree that 9V track (I think we need straights before curves just because of the high price for straights) is a must have for me. Even if they were in a trixbrix style of using less plastic as long as they run my trains. I'm wondering if you could even sell "blank" track pieces with grooves in the for HO or G scale track to slide into upside down to reduce costs. Can't wait for 9V track as Me-Models seem to have abandoned their company. -RailCo

    where are these photos everyone is speaking of!?! -RailCo
  8. Thank you somehow I missed this when searching for fixes. Implementing the removal of the two free spinning red gears and replacing them with the normal grey gears did the trick! Now my setup is motorized without losing the engine and 3rd gear works! I have rarely had a problem with the mechanism that changes gear (only maybe 1 in 20 gear changes do I get a double engagement). Thank for your help! -RailCo
  9. Hey I have had my Porsche set for a few months now and still can't get my third gear to run properly. I have it motorized from the front (where that little hole looks like it was originally designed for a XL Motor). Gears 1, 2, and 4 Run very smoothly with no problems at all but when I switch to gear 3 it seems as though there is a lot of friction coming from the gears sets closest to the engine (the set of gears you had to swap for the gears to switch in order). I am curious if anyone can spot an error or reason why this happens. Sine I have motorized it in the front I cannot use the normal way of outputting the gears to the wheels so the clutch gear in the picture below is the output gear for my particular setup. 2017-12-15_02-39-54 by Rail Co, on Flickr If anyone needs for camera angles or shots to be able to help please let me know! Thanks! -RailCo
  10. Hello guys, I am hoping one or two of you would be happy to share your personal experience with me. The experience would be if you have ever been judged or bullied for building with Lego as a teen, or adult. It does not have to be recently, if you don't want to share on this fourm you can PM me. The only information I ask you to provide is your name, your story, and at what age it happened (can be rough like 20s, 30s, etc.). Your response may be used in a college essay that only my professor will read. If you want I can leave your name as "Anonymous" or say you prefer not to be named. Thanks! -RailCo

    Sounds good to me! Let us know who gets the honor of reviewing the book! Thanks, -RailCo
  12. [REVIEW OFFER] The LEGO Trains Book

    I'd love to do a review, I haven't done a lot of reviews though so I don't expect you to pick me. If I did happen to be sent it I would do my best to make a non-biased review and I have been collecting trains for awhile now across all systems. Thanks for the opportunity, -RailCo
  13. Using the Motor of 60051 inside 7745

  14. Mosaic Help?

    Hello, Recently I have wanted to make a Mosaic of me and my girlfriend. I was looking around on bricklinks mosaic maker and Bright Bricks new mosaic service. I find it hard to get a decent looking Mosaic without paying upwards of $200. If I couldn't make one of us together I was also thinking of making two smaller ones with each person taking up one Mosaic. I was wondering what people had suggestions on for buying bulk bricks cheaply. How to design one using only current lego colors (if that looks decent). And what a good price is for either 1 64x64 Mosaic or 2 32x32/48x48 Mosaics would be. Thanks!
  15. Hello, hope this is the correct forum to post this in. I was hoping someone out there could help me know if it "safe" to use the hydrogen peroxide method to "de-yellow" or restore bricks on colored bricks to their old color. I know that it works on whites and grays but has anyone tried this on other colors whether Modulex Colors or not? The bricks I am trying to restore are the Modulex red and Modulex Pink along with the Modulex Pastel-Green and Modulex Pastel-Blue. The really bad ones are the red and a few of the pink and Pastel-Blue while the Pastel-green is bearable but still needs work. I was hoping someone could help me on this. Thanks! -RailCo
