My LEGO Trains in action at last!


It has been months since I was last able to film trains in motion around all of my tracks.  Back when I moved in March, it took just 2 days to go from a completely empty room to about 80% of what's on the layout today. Everything was already pre-built from the old city and careful digital planning let every element fall into its new place gracefully.  I just needed to MOC up a way to get my main line over the water by the small marina, and I was ready to run.  Unfortunately that took a sizable fraction of forever.

Patience is a virtue, though, right?  With all three loops completed (for now), yards & crossovers connected, it was finally time to charge up some battery packs, switch some points, and crank up some rheostats.  In this video I pull out all of the stops and run every locomotive and pull every car I currently own, 9V & PF (and both), kit-stock and custom, passenger & freight, standard & narrow gauge.

  1. You really, really, REALLY like trains. I have the same "fetish", but it's aerospace for me :)

  2. I love your blog! So many cool videos, always fun to watch.
    Did you dislike the Lone Ranger train? I know it's non-motorized, but looked good as for me and could be modified to include the battery and all.

  3. Love your set up, quite amazing and inspirational to build my own. I was wondering, do you have a layout diagram or picture of your track set up? Would love to use it as a template for mine and grow from there. Let me know if you can do anything.

  5. Hey JangBricks! Love your city! Simply amazing and inspirational. I was wondering, do you have a diagram or a picture of your track layout? Would love to use it as a base for my project and expand it from there. Let me know what you can do.
