Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Train TechThis is for discussion of train storage systems (or lack thereof if you are unlucky). I'll start with my storage / transport solution: If anyone has wondered how I get my trains to and fro all over the place, here is my secret: cardboard paper boxes. Fourteen (14) of them from all different places and companies. I tried asking for the empty ones at the Office Max / Office Depot stores (They are all owned by the Staples company now, believe it or not!) but they can't sell or give them away due to some corporate policy. I had been getting them from my dad's work, and more recently, different offices I have been to / worked at. They are them cut-down by Xacto knife and hot glued back together with opening lid and section dividers, which allows for me to store trains a number of different combinations. Most of the passenger cars are 24 studs long, with 1 studs of overhang over each coupler. However, the Spirit of Legoredo is an older 28 stud long design, and most steam locos are longer than 30 studs. Nevertheless, I have maximized space whenever possible. Below you will see several variations on these boxes, and maybe they will help you with your train storage problems.

Hey guys, I'm new to Eurobricks, so I'm terribly sorry if I've done something wrong. (Sorry again in advance if this was supposed to be in the buying/selling thread and not in the General). Ever since I was young, I loved Lego. I had collected many sets over my time, and had kept the sets completed with all their pieces up against my shelf to keep them together. But as of late, I've decided to move on from Lego (because they sit there and get dusty :P) and put my sets back in their respective boxes. The problem I have is that I am unable to find any guides as to how I should disassemble the Lego. Usually most sets have the Lego bricks in separate plastic bags marked 1, 2, 3 etc. with parts ranging from smaller pieces to wheels to larger pieces alike. Is there a site or a method to find out which parts go into which plastic bags? I have several zip-lock bags to place these parts into, but I'm unsure how to go about putting the pieces into their respective bags. Just to summarise, I am disassembling my Lego creations because I am moving on, but I am unsure as to how I should pack the creations back into their boxes, especially when it comes to the numbered bags. Is there any site/guide/video that explains how to fully disassemble a Lego creation? Thanks in advance, and sorry again if I've done something wrong! :P ~thatkid202
Does anyone know why LEGO switched to bags for HF sets? Despite many fans whining about it they have been really tenacious and have not changed the design. Is it because of environmental/cost concerns or is there something else behind it?
