    There you go, proof - the new plastic on plastic wheels are a dud. Dud - noun 1. a thing that fails to work properly or is otherwise unsatisfactory or worthless. "all three bombs were duds" adjective 1. not working or meeting standards; faulty.

    2019 LEGO Trains - 70424

    Thanks for the info @peterab, another Ambassador confirmed to me yesterday that the wheel holder is different as he was at the same show and saw the same thing. The idea that they are just a part for sets that are not run on tracks at speed and are just a type of part for a hand push train dosn't make sense to me, why would you design and make new moulds for two new parts that already exist. Every time a new part is developed it means more moulds, more room to store the parts. One advantage would be that you no longer need the metal axels, so that saves some storage and costs. To my way of thinking, its more likely you would only bring out a new part type if you are dropping the old one. The other option is they modify the holder, use the existing wheels 4621116 that take a Technic cross axil. That would mean storage of 5 parts down to 3, which would been an advantage from a production point of view. Another option is a new holder and a once peace wheel and axial part like the new roller coaster wheel sets (Credit to @dr_spock for this idea) Going from 3 parts too 2. @Aanchir you make a very good point about removing metal for a safer product for children. If we are seeing a new part type, at the moment we don't know enough about its construction to know its advantages or disadvantages. I also find it interesting, as it makes you think from a production and design point of view how you would make the change and how you would do it. I guest we will find out in Aug at the latest.

    Here is other pictures, of the set displayed in real parts. 3JPG by Stephen, on Flickr Capture 2 by Stephen, on Flickr The second photo looks a bit like it may be a Technic axial is being used. Just to be clean, we don.t know if the wheels have changed. Highlighting the different look of the pictures is just a way for the community to look at and try to work out if a change is coming.

    I have just seen some conjecture by Ashley Bognar on "Lego Train Fan Club" Facebook page that the wheels for the trains may have had the metal axle removed. Here is what he posted. "So, Lego has redesigned the 3×6 Train wheel to not use a metal axle anymore. Each wheel is individually moulded with an axle stub and is held into it's own clip. Thoughts?" New Wheels by Stephen, on Flickr It certainly looks to me that the holders have a "U" shape to them for a pin. Just to be clean, we don.t know if the wheels have changed. Highlighting the different look of the pictures is just a way for the community to look at and try to work out if a change is coming.
  15. Thanks for the vidoe link. While it didnt show me whats inside the LEGO cable, it did teach me about the use of a Flow Control Diode. Which shows me what I was hoping the converter cable has inside it. Thank you, I now have a bit more info for the idea I have.
