    Teaser for Upcoming Train?

    Hello, just watched the designer video on the 10277 crocodile train. For a very short time you can see a drawing of another locomotive on a white board. I was thinking if this could be a teaser or just a mere coincidence. I have a screenshot from the video. The number on the loco is "1876" and looks to be more American in style. If people think it is possibly a teaser anyone know what train it could be? For anyone wondering this is about 3:05 minutes into the video. Wondering what everyone's thoughts are on this? Screenshot: Thanks, -RailCo
  7. Let me know if there's place that you'd like me to visit :)

  9. This rail crossing is automated by two Arduino's. One Arduino will take care of the actual crossing (making the freight trains start/stop and the signals) the other Arduino controls the passenger trains which start/stop from two different stations. Because there's only one priority track for the passenger trains on the crossing, but both stations have two tracks, the latter Arduino also has to control the direction of the passenger trains on the crossing and also flip the switches to make sure the passenger train ends up at an empty track at the station. Both Arduino's have some low level communication between them: as soon as a passenger train is started, the crossing-Arduino is told to put the lights on red and to stop the track. The crossing-Arduino has a setting that tells it for how long the lights should be red. Oh, and there's of course also the Lego Terminator. Enjoy!
  10. Hello trainfans ... and everyone else of course, too ;-) Some days (weeks) ago, there: I said "hello" for the first time. Now - some days later, my first MOC is nearlly finished. I want to start with a video of it: Well, I guess, the kind of video (fogg) doesn't everybody like - however, I wanted topresent in a special way. I also thaught about presenting in the wood, at the beach or on a high tower - problem there would be the electric for the 9 motors - so I choose that was. Regarding my first post, you will know, it's just a very little start. There will come much more trains and even a nice setting - I hope, at least one new train per month should be possible... However, that's really expensive. (Especially the windows!) ... and there is still remaining a very little rest of the lego train sets, I still want to but. (Aim is getting every single set since 1966.) Pictures? Okay - in case, you haven't got the time or don't like youtube ;-) Well... they seem to be to big for the onside upload button ;-o What do you think about the train? ... I still need about 6 more cars for getting a realistic lenght... (an observing car and a bistro for example ;-) ) Best regards and a nice weekend!! ;-)

  14. So far, only ONE AFOL has given me the right answer :-) Hi everybody, This one is a real challenge! After the quiz N2 that we had as warm-up, here we are with a harder quiz. I am really curious to know if anybody knows or can find the answer of this one. I would consider a prize for the winner(s). If you are sure you know the answer, please "DO NOT SPOIL", but only pm me. But if you have any guess together with some reasons for your guess, you are very welcome to comment under this post so that we can discuss about it and who knows, maybe we get multiple responses. Here is the question: WHICH INSTRUCTIONS have MORE THAN ONE VERSION? The sets in question are 7710, 7715, 7720, 7722, 7725, 7727, 7730, 7735, 7740, 7745, 7750, 7755, 7760. I believe you cannot find the answer by googling (I couldn't). Good luck :-)
  15. I have seen two variations of instructions 7860: 1) For the second release 1982-87, the code of instruction is 113483 ©1981. In the instructions, we can see this variation of "Straight Conducting Rail with Rail Interruption" 3242apb01:{"color":9,"iconly":0} 2) For the third release 1988-94, it is 120622 ©1981 in which we can see this variation of "Straight Conducting Rail with Rail Interruption" 3242bpb01:{"color":9,"iconly":0} 3) What about the first release 1980-81? Is there any instructions for it (do you have it?) in which we can see "Straight Conducting Rail with Rail Interruption" 3242a:
  16. Hi everyone, after a long time I'm back here to present the Tre Cime of Lavaredo, a Unesco World Heritage in the Dolomites, Italian Alps. A creation I built with some fellows of our CLV Lug. Well, I thought this huge moc built with thousands of bricks fits well on a diorama if there is a proper tunnel for trains. I built two portals for a double track with 2 different solutions. I developed a large arched classic portal for two rails inspired to those on the 5 Terre line in Liguria and a double portal inspired to the North side of Sempione tunnel. Hope you all would appreciate these solutions. The Tre Cime of Lavaredo were presented last weekend for the first time at the Model Expo Italy in Verona. This big mountain was positioned on the CLV diorama city of about 30 meters. Below you will find some images shot at Verona venue which are part of our Lego Trains show. The west portal is inspired by those of the Riomaggiore station, a railway that winds along the Ligurian coast of the Mediterranean Sea and runs through mountains, bridges and terraces just up on the sea. Here a double heading of R4C Vossloh Mak G2000 The East portal is inspired to the one at the North entrance of Traforo del Sempione, a railway between Italy and Switzerland. The ÖBB 1216 020 "175 Jahre Eisenbahn für Österreich" built by Massimo Bmacro The E414 heading a Frecciabianca built by Matteo MapuDJ A lego version of the ÖBB Feuerwehr Taurus Another Taurus in black MRCE livery A G2000 in a livery of a Company of my Town. A special thanks to Emanuele LT12Volts wich has developed an excellent interpretation of this machine which is apparently easy to built in Lego. He gave me his project. Here a video of some trains in action Finally, please allow me to post a shot that is very dear to me. It was taken at the Model Expo 2017 and collects many Italian lego train fans. Emanuele this year could not join us. Bianchino, LT12Volts, MapuDJ, Bolto@, Legofan99, Helos,Bmacro, Roby, Ex cinno, Jaymz HD
  17. Hi everyone! Few years ago I started thinking about a system to control my LEGO diorama because I did't find any "official" system (I found Mindstorms very expensive for my budget and limiting); so I create a system that allows me to control all the diorama and roll out automations when I show my diorama in fairs and exibitions. These are the features of ArduTrain WiFi: Control up to 8 Power Functions trains (but also 9v old trains with relays) Control up to 6 motorized LEGO switches Control the LED lighting and the Power Functions motors on your diorama thanks to the 4 relay output Roll out automations: detect passage of the trains by triggering up to 6 sensors on the tracks Watch realtime video streaming of your diorama thanks to webcam streaming (remote control of all diorama, I play with mine from smartphone when I'm in the bathroom ) Is multi-device and works on browsers without installing anything Easy to implement, does not require any specific expertise After a while I decided to share ArduTrain WiFi for free, so I made an easy guide (in english / italian) and I made software (in english) available on my website at this address: There is also a Facebook page to follow all the updates: Here you can see ArduTrain WiFi in action: This is not a commercial product but it's licensed; the project can be supported through donations from the website: in this way it will be kept free for everyone and there will be new developments. I hope you enjoy!
  18. This train which i built a year ago has not the lego train classic chassis but my own. It has also some seats and a table for people and it looks quite good, so it is not only about the speed. I am not sure if you will like the video, because it is quite old and the selfmade music is quite weird.
  19. Hey, A few years back I set up a layout which consisted of one big loop with a couple of side tracks where trains can be parked. So multiple trains were running on the same loop. This system had a central controller and the downside of this was that a lot of times the system had to wait for a train to come in or there were only two trains at the maximum running around. This time I've made a system with six side tracks and every side track has its own controller. So the choice wether to park a train on the side track or not is done locally based on a few variables like distance with the previous train and how long the side track was not occupied. A video says more than words so enjoy :)
  20. Hello fellow train builders, I would like to share my most recent project theme; Lego Trains & Internet of Things. Basically, I make connected trains and train related stuff. My aim is not to be 100% realistic or copy existing real world trains. My goal is to bring Lego into the IoT movement, learn many great things along the way, and eventually help the next generations to get interested and pick up the necessary skills for a better world through technology. Let's call this STEM through Play.(STEM=science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Sounds like a mouthful, huh? but that's what I want anyway ) Without further ado, here's what I have built so far; Automated Lego Railroad Crossing Lego Train Voice Controlled Lights via Amazon Echo Lego Train Controller App Please bear in mind that this project is new and under development. I welcome any sort of feedback and questions I will also update this thread but if you'd like to keep up, here's my website which aggregates all the social channels related to this project: Legongineer
  21. Hi, Short video of my 12v lego collection. Found the basic 7730 in the loft from my childhood about 3 months ago and been adding to it ever since,... Enjoy :) Choo Choo
  22. IMG_4907 by Canvas Rails, on Flickr G'day All, The 2016 Brick Expo was held in Canberra this weekend and was a whole lot of fun. We made it a celebration of 50 years of Lego Trains and had blue track, grey (golden) era 12v, 9v, power functions and monorail. So much monorail. For those who couldn't make it due to being in the other hemisphere, there was a 3D scan done late on Friday night that features the train layout so you can do a virtual walk through! I would love to know what you think of the layout and get pointers from the more experienced exhibitors in the group. My easy favourite is the 12v section because it looked like something straight out of the 7777 ideas book. The link is: https://my.matterpor.../?m=VR8uF8vPAwd Here is a news article with some additional information and the scan embedded. http://www.canberrat...729-gqgdbc.html CLUG train group layout at Brick Expo 2016, Canberra. 50 years of Lego Trains 1966-2016 by Canvas Rails, on Flickr Cheers, Rob
