    Technical problem 9V

    I would insulate each of the three circuits - so one controller just operates one circuit. I would insulate the sections by placing a small piece of Sellotape between the track joins at the crossovers. I don't understand what the 4th controller does.
  2. I posted my MOD last year. Here is my version of 60167 using part of the buffet coach and a few spare bricks.I am still using the 9V system, so one end carriage has a 9V motor and the other (shown) has a brick built bogie using the original wheels and decorative sides. I extended the centre carriage to be 28 rather than 24 studs long (as the centre carriage(s) look too short in comparison to the ends).
  3. I was slightly confused but the LEGO gauge is 38mm, while standard gauge is 1.435m which gives a scale of 1:38. That's a coincidence. But scale with LEGO is very approximate as the height of a minifig and the gauge of the track do not match. It is a toy - if it looks right enjoy it.
  4. That's a boat not a loco.

    Factory Train 10183 Instructions

    I find this link useful. http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=328898 It shows the 'steps' more clearly - it is easier to identify the parts especially the black ones.

    Are the Creator Expert trains finished?

    I've been looking back at the 12V trains and have come to the conclusion that "add-on" sets don't do very well. The only people that will buy them are those that already have a train set. With for example the police theme, you can buy a small police set, you don't need to have bought a police station to add to it.

    Duplo Trains discussion

    I deliberately decided not to include the licenced themes - "All the Duplo Trains that run on track, excluding licenced themes & Dacta but including the Intelli-train". I could add a new Bricklist for them later.

    Duplo Trains discussion

    I have just got my first DUPLO train and have just added a Bricklist of 'All the DUPLO Trains'. It is in www.Brickset.com - enter any Duplo train set number and select 'Bricklists' at the bottom - or https://brickset.com/sets/list-26191 It is not just a list but contains information on each set and how the theme has developed. I have also written a few on 'normal' LEGO trains. As I'm not an expert, please have a look and let me know if there are any omissions or corrections required. Thanks.

    Narrow Guage Track Help

    There is LEGO narrow gauge curved track - https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=85976#T=P They also made up and down ramps. They appeared in 7199 The temple of doom, 7065 Alien mother ship, 6857 The dynamic duo funhouse escape - in grey & black. Unfortunately they didn't produce points.
  11. I'm sure the older boxes of straights & curves did not come with any instructions.

    Program to make rail layout?

    I'm still using TrackDesigner http://members.home.nl/john.hielema/tracks/td.htm . maybe it's dated but I find it very good and I've added extra parts.

    PF tracks/switch not lining up?

    Here it is in TrackDesigner - using 9V track - which has the same geometry. It will work with just 2 curves and 2 straights and a pair of points.

    [MOD/MOC] 60197 Train

    Here is my completed version of 60197 - with windows in the first and last carriage and a longer middle carriage. It has a 9V motor but is shown on plastic track.

    [MOD/MOC] 60197 Train

    I am still using the 9V system, so one end carriage will have a 9V motor and the other (shown) has a brick built bogie using the original wheels and decorative sides. I will probably extend the centre carriage to be 28 rather than 24 studs long (as the centre carriage(s) look too short in comparison to the ends.
