First off, I would like to say that, no, I am not terrible at maths! All shall be explained! (Sorry, this may be quite a lot of reading!) The Back Story: First aspect: Some weeks ago, I was having a general look for sets that might be of interest to me. I stumbled upon a very good deal on the Lego City Bus Station (Set no. 60154). I decided in a spur of the moment purchase to pick up 2 sets, with no real plan… That’s what sowed the seed! Second aspect: In the not so distant past, I had purchased a huge Lego haul from eBay containing many train set items and accessories. In amongst this, was an incomplete copy of the Lego Freight Rail Runner (Set no. 4564) – (maybe 80% complete) – at the time I didn’t really know what to do with it. Over time I harvested the 9V motor, wheels, couplings, bogie plates, wagon parts and straight track – basically all the good stuff! Now, I’m a big fan of seeing people doing set combining! I have never seen anyone attempt something like this! (Correct me if I’m wrong!) The Hypothesis: “Is it feasible to make a decent looking locomotive of any kind, combining Sets 60154 and 4564? – Using minimal significant other parts, but in cases where necessary only using parts I currently have, and not resorting to ordering things. The locomotive should ideally use Power Functions with 2 motors, lights are not necessary. Also, the finished model should be sturdy, strong, and able to be played with by children.” Answer, Was It Possible? Yes, and in my opinion, it turned out rather well. What I attempted to build was a massively simplified Class 37, with much artistic licence! Here is the finished product: Thus, the idea for “60154 + 4564 = 37?” was born! What do you think? Any questions, thoughts, or criticism will be much appreciated. Regards, James :)
Hello, I am just starting with Lego trains but I am familiar with the trains. I already got HO and Merklin N trains. Here is what I got : Tracks only : 6 x 7499 Flexible and Straight Tracks 1 x 7895 Switching Tracks 1 x 7996 Train Rail Crossing Box : 1 x 60051 High-Speed Passenger Train 1 x 66374 City Super Pack 4 in 1 (damn, I just see I got 66405 not 66374) So : 6 x 8 + 4 + 20 = 72 straight 16 + 20 + 4 = 40 curves 1 crossing 6 switchings I got some goals for my track : - 2 trains can run at the same times - it can reverse a train - it can park unused wagons - One part is for *speed train* so with as few crossing as possible - A station stop track (where a train can stop allowing other to run) - Not a too large nor long layout (due to WAF) 3 meters long and as narrow as possible Due to Super Pack 66405, I will have use flex track (dont like them much) because 4 curves are missing. I will place the flex track in the reversing loop area. Any advice about my track layout is welcome !!! Current size is 2.88 m x 1.22 mm. Ps : Sorry for my poor English.
