I picked these up for the kids...hahaha. I'm having as much fun as they are! JUST about o scale, rc control, and easy scratch building...what could be better! Mega set had extra switches and track. Intro to operations class...

Short replies since using my phone.
These trains run really well, rebuilt however you want (they're Lego!) If you have any kiddos around, check them out. If not, they're fun anyway!
Kid approved!

Hi Brian :wave:

Yep !
I do.
Superb !!

Checkout my 1:32 slotcar racing layout ' M:R:W Motor Speedway ' as well.

REAL rocks ! ... 'LEGO' buildings ... 'Playmobil' & 'Schleich' vegetation ... 'Britains' animals !

The LEGO minifigures scale out at exactly 1:43 if you assume they are all 6ft tall !!
They appear at M:R:W as distant spectators !
Forced perspective, YEAH.

My LEGO buildings are all made to 1:32 scale though.
Except the 'distant' LEGO grandstand.
You need a V.I.P plastic-pass for those seats !!

:moose:

Si.

Best trainset you could give kids, in my opinion.

The passenger train and a station for it to stop at will be next. I can speak from experience!

There was a guy in one of the clubs I used to belong to that had a very large collection of Lego trains.  He built a 16x16 foot layout to operate from and it was always a hit with the kids.  The best part was that if something would break, he could fix it on the spot!

Probably the best show layout in the local area (in my opinion, of course)

Wish I had pictures, but it was many years ago.

The Lego Train people do layouts at the local San Antonio area train shows and the NMRA National Train show. One of the local people has done a Shay, Heisler and Climax as well as several rod locomotives.

At the SUPER TRAIN show held here in Calgary, Ab, the local LEGO group sets up their layout, roughly 16 by 30 Ft.
I have never taken a photo but well worth seeing. certain
there is a SHAY or two running.

I have photos somewhere of the Lego layouts at last year's New Braunfels (TX) train show. I will try to find and post them.
