  1. 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.
  2. 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: http://www.lucabellan.it/ardutrain/ There is also a Facebook page to follow all the updates: https://www.facebook.com/ardutrainwifi 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!
  3. 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 :)
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Hi everyone. I have a question on lego 12v Remote Controlled Road Crossing and 9v system. Can this set work in 9v system if I have 12v controller? Thanks.
  8. I thought some may like these. All 3 models are still works in progress, just really with a few finer details and stickers to be completed. The one thats been the biggest pain due to the smoke unit: Class 37, using a SWD Loksound V4 chip and fan assisted smoke unit: Work in progress set: Class 55 Deltic: Work in progress set: Class 27: Work in progress set: And finally, one of all 3 :) http://www.flickr.co...ix/12252554053/
  9. It's been a long time since we have uploaded a video of our lego city. This one features our Hogwarts Castle corner. Our castle is built from 5 lego hogwarts sets and the layout has a few additional Harry Potter accessory sets. Please check it out on youtube at < I have a MOC womping willow on the layout with the HP Ford Anglia in its grips. 64 sq foot lego city layout with over 60,000 bricks. Included 5 lego Hogwarts sets, 4709 Hogwarts Castle, 4729 Dumbledore's Office, 4753 Sirius Black's Escape, 4755 Knight Bus, 4768 The Durmstrang Ship, 4842 Hogwarts Castle, 4841 Hogwarts Express, 4867 Hogwarts, 10132 Motorised Hogwarts Express, 10217 Diagon Alley, 4729 Dumbledore's Office, plus a bunch of modular buildings and trains. We have some other Harry Potter sets that we haven't found a way to integrate into the layout yet. Our next video will feature the addition of another creator house and another modular building. Stay tuned.
