    Modern Lego trains on old blue track?

    From memory I found the problems was with the switches - where the 'guide rails' might sometimes interfere with different generations of wheels and rails. However at slow speeds it never seemed to be too problematic.
  3. The website to check is Mini-pac Economy Europe is 30 CHF. I know its silly... from Germany it would cost 8 Euro. But I no longer have a "free" rail pass to get to Konstanz; the rail ticket would be 45 CHF. So that doesnt work out.
  4. Normally I would say yes, but the problem is the wheels. Swiss post have a strict rule that anything over 2cm thick must go as maxi-PAC which includes tracking and insurance. Where are you based and that's the best way to get a price - for Spain it was 30.- I will be in the UK in early march...
  5. Im finally clearing out the last of my loose bits and pieces and have placed small lots starting from 1 CHF on ebay. Postage prices for larger items can be high but thats thanks to Swiss Post and not a profit from my side.

    TLG employee buying from BL

    Don't forget some TLG designers are AFOL and probably cannot just rely on "free bricks" for their private creations. If for an official design it could also be that specific parts are old / currently not in production / but most likely they are doing their own MOC's

    Limited distribution of 21021

    Having once been in Bad Aibling hotel at same time as German sales team meet up (Lego bricks everywhere) I can easily understand a "regional" setup - whereby sales targets are discussed and response to other products are compared. Did Sungymen sell well outside of its target market? If not then perhaps the cost to bring to market out weighed the benefits; and more shelf space can be given to fast movers and higher turnover It is a pity that more sales via the exclusive tab of their website were not allowed - but again it will be a production run / shipping issue. If all the production were shipped en/masse to Singapore then it makes international distribution much more expensive. In the end there will be some people in TLG who know the answer and some people scratching their heads but compared to the high volumes of other sets it's probably a storm in a teacup to them (although big deal for collectors).
  9. As an update I finally put MOC and Technic models onto my ebaylink - most with a starting price of 1 CHF. This is because the models have to go now... Life changes, sometimes unexpectedly. All models are built in a smoke free home, and are sold as-is. What you see in the photo is what you get.

    Narrow Gauge 3 Axle Power Functions Bogie

    This was done a few years ago and space___ (Forget full username) posted great pictures and even built working Ij points. The model was of a Japanese train - was definitely on Flickr. Try using google search with added keyword of and you will find it. My handy is not ideal for searching - sorry

    Need help with design of an Octan Locomotive

    Can also use combinations of these to make a modern looking locomotive - but it is not really a typical diesel design. Together with... (in white) It can look good - I had some also designed like this including some Orange and Blue locomotives. However the all glass windscreen is not so idea. A white 7755 works as well. Enjoy

    Need help with design of an Octan Locomotive

    The 7939 locomotive has a plain yellow cab - but on bricklink you can find them with octan logo (windscreen, decorated). Then replacing a line of yellow bricks with red green yellow plates and tiles Produces a very elegant diesel locomotive or three. The 7855 does work in blue but a large part of the red is two weight bricks to keep the locomotive on the track - and the 4 wide nose means it doesn't fit well to being used with PF. I remember the custom octan wagons - I also sold some a year ago. I have a few more in metallic silver / yellow to finish making up.
  15. Hi Brad130 Sorry I can't PM you as you need 10 posts first. But yes I did post a fire rescue train to cuuso a few years back. It was sold about a year ago. My friend is setting up her toy store for collectable items and she will do most of the listings. But if there is something you are looking for let me know - as I said get 10 posts and we can also PM
