legoman19892 posted a topic in General LEGO DiscussionI did an A3 report of sorting and storing my LEGO. Eliminated rework and did some visual management as a result. Anyone else do this to lessen sort time? What is an A3?: https://quality-one.com/a3/
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. Forgotten GS-6 Daylight 4-8-4 and Meramec river Runner passenger train Alco FA / FB (not shown) and Spirit of Legoredo passenger train Generic six car freight train (not shown - on display on my layout) Mikado 2-8-2 steam freight loco and EMD E-unit cab + booster units American 4-4-0 and early passenger train Now how do YOU store or transport your trains?!?
As some of you might have read in my previous article, I recently purchased a ton of bricks on Craigslist which I have painstakingly sorted into sets. This article covers: different sorting goals (by color, by part, etc..) how to sort it (I used a two-pass sorting algorithm) how to store it (I used drawers) Read the Article: From buckets to bins: How to sort a lot of Lego Take a look and let me know what you think... I'm especially interested to hear how your sorting and storing method differs. (I'm pretty sure it's a good storage method - it's Lord Business approved!) Sincerely, ---tom
