    Control board for block signals

    I did something similar recently using an Arduino Nano: Lego Train Lights
  2. Great to see something I posted several years ago is still interesting. I corrected the original post and uploaded the images there.

    [WIP] Light up all Modulars with LEDs

    Wow, that's a pretty cool solution. I'm gonna give that a try as well

    [WIP] Light up all Modulars with LEDs

    That's really nice. I'm actually in the process of lighting up my Lego city with modulars and trains as well. I'm however starting with automating a level crossing using an Arduino, and take it from there. I have also been thinking about the connection between floors of modulars, and I was thinking about using a magnetic connector between the floors. I haven't found a suitable connector for that yet that's still affordable enough in quantities. Good luck, I will closely follow this thread!

    MOC, Modular Building: Cozy Pub

    Amazing detail! I love it. Especially the "Delfts blauwe tegeltjes" give a level of detail I had not seen before.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I think it's briliant from marketing point-of-view. What would those people who want a full block think after it has finished? They would have an excuse to stop collecting modulars. At least now with a 48-wide modular in between, you would leave out one half of the pet-shop, and you automatically start with an unfinished new block, so you'll have to continue collecting. Well thought out Lego!

    Bricklinking Modular Buildings

    Stil waiting for the 1x2 bricks with groove to reappear in sand green. If not, I won't order the rest of the parts.

    3mm hoses/bars

    If you need blue or brown, you can use the copper wire used for electric installation in Europe, it's 3mm in diameter and extremely cheap

    [MOC] Club-Car for 60051

    Thanks, cool solution!

    [MOC] Club-Car for 60051

    Nice club car, I really like how the roof is done. What's up with the electric wiring through it?

    [LDD MOC] 8x32 Modular (Work in Progress)

    Looks pretty good. I would make the walls on ground and first floor slightly higher though

    [MOD] Silvermine as trackside structure

    Thanks. I don't have the constitution train. At one moment, I had the opportunity to buy it for only 70 euros in discount, but I didn't like it enough. I should've bought it then.

    Modulars - how many of each do you have?

    I got into modulars a little less than 2 years ago. Now I own almost all of them, except the green grocer and the market street. I bricklinked the cafe corner, and I hope to do the same with green grocer if the sand green 1x2 brick with groove ever becomes available in a new set. If not, touch luck. I don't intent to get the market street at all. One of each modular is enough for me, I'd like to leave some space for the train track as well.
  14. I bought the Silvermine from Lone Ranger almost two years ago. It appealed to me, and I wanted to use it as a trackside structure. I only recently got around to modding it into my layout. I tried to keep as much as possible of the original structure and bricks, but also wanted to fit it in between two tracks spaced 8 studs apart. It was quite a challenge, but I'm quite happy with the results: Regular 6 wide trains (plus a bit sticking out) can easily pass it on both sides

    What got you into lego trains!

    As a kid, my parents got me a used 720 with blue 12V track. I later got a 7760 as well from my parents. I played with those quite a lot.When we got our son the 7939 for his birthday, the lego train virus got me again, and I started to build some of my own. Now I could afford much more than back when I was a kid, so I build a nice setup in the attic. I think it was the 7777 lego ideas book that gave me a lot of inspiration back then, I still have that. I converted the 720 and 7760 to PF, and expanded on that. Lego trains have some sort of magic to it, at least that's how I feel about it.
