  1. I am a fan of Thomas, and he is probably cautious about any possible legal troubles.
  2. I am delighted that the products are selling well. I am planning to get some switches and a r104 loop from habricks.com this year and I will get the double crossing once it comes out. I think you can, and are planning to, reuse the switches "R104 base A" mold and just add a center crossing section between for the double crossing? Looking forward to it and I wish you a lot of success in this.
  3. This is my solution: I already had two PF motors, I just got an extension cable and a PoweredUp ligths (the cheapest). I made an adapter cable and I also opened one of the motors to switch its polarity. I think I found all the info for these changes on this forum. I was also experimenting with using 2x18650 Li-Ion batteries (3200 mAh = 3x capacity) instead of the AAAs with the PU circuit board, but I have to figure out how to fit them in the Maersk. However, a full charge of AAAs gave me a long enough runtime, so I put that project on pause. I really like the Bluetooth capability and hope to find time to experiment with some python scripts to run my trains from a Raspberry Pi. Also it is nice to have the extra room when you scrap the PF IR reciever.

    PoweredUp Hub issue

    Well it was two or three day. That is what was strange to me, that there was no safety for wrong wiring. I will leave it for a week or so with the batteries out and see then. I know an adapter would be difficult for lego, as now wires also tranfer info about what module is connected and can even receive data. Thankfully the train motor can only have wires just connected back without additional resistors or extra work. I may just get a new hub anyway, saw a sweet deal on the app-controlled batmobile.

    PoweredUp Hub issue

    Yes I knew the layout. For train motor, use pins 5 and 6 and connect 1+4 and 2+3 together. I must have accidentally switched wires from the SATA cable. Thanks for the help anyway.

    PoweredUp Hub issue

    So I have a little problem and would like an opinion of someone more knowledgeable in this area. First I have to stress, that I know that all I did was my responsibility and only I am to blame for any damages. I have tried to make an PoweredUp to PF adapter using a SATA data cable. I tried to run some train motors, but it did not work. Maybe I used wrong wires from the SATA cable. I finished my tests and turned off the hub normally. A few days later, I tried to switch on the hub, but the led is not blinking and it does not show up in bluetooth. The batteries are charged and fine with a voltage of 7.6V . Is it possible it got bricked with some short? Is here a way to unbrick it? I saw a lot of good work from the community here, so maybe someone can answer my questions. I just want to find out if it is a lost cause. It would be a pity, because I managed to buy it on BL before the price hike. PS: I put this in the train forum as there are a lot PU threads

    Powered UP to Power Functions adapter

    Great guide, thanks! I will probably take the upper part of the Powered Up box and connect 2 18650 Li-Ion batteries as a source. But if I take out the logic board I could completely ignore the Powered Up adapter cable, hmm ...

    Powered Up Rechargeable Battery Mod

    I have actually tried something similar. I got two 18650 Li-ion batteries with 3200 mAh capacity and did only a proof of concept. Next step was a better BMS with balancing and the SBrick for bluetooth, but I somehow stopped working on it and started collecting modular buildings... Also, my train has 2 PF motors, both on one connector and one has reversed polarity (i switched the cables inside the motor, not with the bulky reverser). https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KpNMJNVKyhZrp9fCNMgJQh2TSmakUEcPrw/view?usp=sharing

    Lego 75955 Hogwarts Express

    I am just disappointed that we do not get the train windows with it, but in the past something like the Knight bus (4866) had enough windows for two passenger cars... On the other hand, it will be easier and cheaper to build more cars via bricklink. However, I do not mind the lack of magnets and the train is very good-looking overall.

    Electronic 138

    https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?S=138-1#T=S&O={"iconly":0} Well there are only used sets for sale on bricklink as of now, so you should ask more for an unopened one.
  11. Well one problem with rereleasing the Metroliner (which already once was) or the Santa Fe is that their prices on the market are really high and many people have invested into them. Releasing the same exact set might lower the values of old versions, which of course collectors would welcome. If I count the winter holiday train as a creator expert train, then the next one could be a diesel, probably Santa Fe.
  12. I would love the Metroliner or Santa Fe.
  13. Looks very nice. But as you extended the building, I would make the crane wider, to maybe support two racks or a wider road? Anyway, thanks for the .ldd
  14. Even if there is no PF demand, please release the 3D print schematics ! It is awesome track geometry.

    2016 Lego trains

    Is it the 31054 set or a hobby train like the Maersk? I cannot access the page from Europe.
