Since late yesterday evening, rumors are circling around the internet that LEGO is going to publish a new LEGO train set in July 2020. There is also an image of the packaging circling around. It is doubtful that this image is real, as the packaging does not feature some elements […]
Check out our video on sensors! Reed sensors are 100% reliable, small and cheap. We believe that those sensors will replace optical sensors in the near future, because they work better in any aspect, are easy to build and less expensive than infrared sensors. In the video, we show the […]
We recently changed our automation software platform. Instead of nControl, we are now using Rocrail. Rocrail is an open source software from the scale model train world and offers a good variety of features that are useful especially when operating large train layouts. Check out our latest video, in which […]
TrixBrix has just launched a tremendous series of narrow gauge tracks. Narrow Gauge tracks for the LEGO train system are two studs narrower than standard gauge tracks. This means, that narrow gauge sleepers are just 6 studs wide (instead of 8 for standard gauge tracks). Curves are available in three […]
TrixBrix, leading manufacturer of LEGO compatible train tracks, now offers almost 100 different track components and other really cool stuff for the LEGO train system. It is getting hard to keep track with all of the new stuff they are bringing to market, and to use their components in track […]
Enjoy some nice scenes of our fully automated LEGO train layout. Some say, the sound of the Emerald Express is the best part of the video. 🙂 Enjoy!
Check out the live demo of our fully automated LEGO train layout! In this video, we give a demonstration how to let trains automatically move over the layout from station to station, how collision control works, and much more. Enjoy!
I added a list of sample track layouts that use the super cool TrixBrix tracks. These tracks enhance the geometric options of the LEGO train systems significantly. Find more samples here.
I have just published my first tutorial on train automation. It’s about “trains”, and gives some insights into our automation software and the tracks that we are using. Enjoy!
We just received a giant package of LEGO compatible train tracks from Trixbrix. It contains several loops of curves with large radii up to R120, and also many fantastic R104 switches. We used the weekend to build a fancy highspeed layout and checked out how fast we can go! Watch […]
