  1. Wow, this is simply amazing! Any idea how many bricks are in this model? It passes the 100k I believe! This is the single most awesome thing I've ever seen built out of Lego. I lived a few years close to the dolomites and I always loved hiking and climbing there so maybe my view is a bit subjective, but still... Wow!
  2. Three automated level crossings in a row...

    I use the arduino platform with normal IR sensors. I don't use the Mindstorms platform, as those sensors cost the tenfold of a normal regular sensor.

    Amen to that, totally agree. Every time the same story here: when new trains are announced people here (not all!) are always dissapointed in one way or the other and it seems that Lego can't do it right and I totally disagree with that: overall they bring out nice sets which are mostly intended for kids who look at the sets completely different than adults do. No flame intended though! :)
  4. Three automated level crossings in a row...

    Thanks for the compliments! I understand the issue with the barriers moving too fast, I've done it for practical reasons. I like the idea about adjusting the speed of the barriers based on the speed of the train, although you need some additional equipment for that. I'm going to make a realistic level crossing in the future for sure!
  5. Hey everyone, I just finished my third automated level crossing: the 7835. Since I had also already automated the 7866 and the 10128 it was time to put them "in series". The 7835 is automated with the parts that are also used in the 7866. Enjoy :)

    A while ago there were some rumours about a new station. Are these rumours still rumours or are they debunked? If still rumours, are there already descriptions about the looks? I haven't seen any relative post in this thread about this subject. BTW, a HP is one thing but I won't be very happy with a HP themed train station although I could understand the logic behind it.
  7. Lego City animation series

    For those interested: episode 2 and 3 are also online now: The fourth and last episode will follow in two weeks.

    I don't know about the passenger train: I think the border between the yellow front (again one mold piece?) and the blue/grey is too "abruptly", it looks a bit amateurish to me. Cargo locomotive is awesome though!

    I have my doubts too. The international toy fair is in the end of January. We should hear some rumours just before that. If not, the trains will be definitely be displayed at the fair. So at the latest by the end of January we'll know what 2018 will bring us on this topic.

    Yes! That's the one! It kinda looks like a grey 7938 but then in the configuration of a HE so you might need two to get a whole train.

    I agree but I think we are now living in a time where every penny spent can be followed. Time/money spent on building those extra alternative builds will not generate a lot of extra money for Lego. So they won't do it. But that's just my theory. Back to 2018 trains: I have seen a picture of a Lego City where a train was partly visible in the background, a few months ago. Rumors were that that would be maybe the next passenger train. It was light grey, Amtrak kind of design. Anyone knows what I'm talking about?
  12. Building 7777

    This is so cool! It's kinda weird to see these builds in sharp hi-res photos!

    60098 is now almost end of life according to the Lego shop@home.
  14. Lego City animation series

    Hi all, I'm working on a 3-episode Lego animation series. The series involves most of the characters that can be seen in my other (train related) videos. But now for the first time, they are featured in an animation series. Enjoy and let me know what you think of the first episode! The second episode will be uploaded in a few weeks :)
  15. You can't directly export from to lXF but thanks for the tip: because of it I noticed the export possibility to LDraw, I totally overlooked that! LDraw is again importable in LDD. Had to change some item numbers but it works just fine.
