|Here is a short vid of "phase two" of my "moving moc" Micro Train Layout from|
our last show.
This layout features many souvenir micro sets (three Brickfest, a Brick World
one, and a BrickVention one), and a few stock Lego sets. It also has many micro
MOCs I created plus a moving train, cable cars, windmill, and gristmill.
In "phase one" I ran a custom (John Barnes) Micro train on n-scale Track and it
was displayed at the last Brickfest. This second attempt was to create and all
Lego solution, and in hindsight I have no clue why I used tread links for the
cable car instead of string, which would have been a cheaper and more elegant
I am currently in "phase three" of this project where I will use this hindsight,
as well as add a new solution for a subway train, for our upcoming show.

|(...) Very nice work, as always, CL Janey. Tread links for the cablecar might have been more expensive and may look a little less elegant, but they grip the horizontal gears far more reliably than string does horizontal pulleys, and one can span a (...)

|(...) grin to my face. I love the way all the convention sets blend so well with everything else you have added to the layout. The cable car is cute, and I agree with Richie, I like the chain link, looks authentic. Keep up the Micro, You do us proud (...) (5 years ago, 19-Mar-08, to lugnet.build.microscale) |
