R104 Switches from BrickTracks in Illinois

Hello all ‘Train Heads’ I just received brand new R104 switches, that I will have on my display during Brickworld Indy. I will have trains running through these switches, so that you can see their performance(no derailing) and how they are assembled and controlled. The switching has been cleverly designed that a ‘rotating element’ is designed to control better moving the switch  tracks than LEGO mechanisms, which are linear and usually stiff to operate.

I will have a right & left switch for all to see. I’ll have business cards with me from Scott of BrickTracks(don’t know if he will attend) to give out.

Lego to sell

An acquaintance of mine named Bill Sullivan contacted me because his son has a large lot of LEGO to sell to fund his Eagle Scout project.  He would prefer to sell it in a single lot to one buyer, but I’m not sure that would be feasible.  I will recommend that he brings it to the January meeting, perhaps parting it out into bags with prices on them.  I wanted everyone to know so they can be prepared if they are interested.  I am attaching pictures he sent.79029659_1007669562944312_6372157091167076352_n 79136846_1423650251134550_4856071199463047168_n 79219442_605382903600609_7898185029002461184_n 79237232_610525909686620_7884206117339791360_n 79282629_513631589240030_6294946292288192512_n 79323301_1212974438900212_4310364530417860608_n 79443206_2483455925305846_1266507962063519744_n 79852681_767983710384474_144521474802188288_n 79856151_533035383949359_8790589957921046528_n 80008570_2911798768853747_2621919290432946176_n 80300909_439596453632727_4544600871236796416_n 80378572_2418729551675349_7249884360193605632_n 80382666_1259994807521645_8014848478339399680_n 80389850_488612951758051_680701867730141184_n

IndyLUG Road Standard

Being in a user group isn’t just about being a better builder. It is also about collaborating. In an effort to increase our club collaboration, we are introducing a road standard we will use in our cities. Based on the design by MichLUG, we will also be compatible with other clubs. We are excited to get this rolling. Just like our MTron collaboration, standards guide the way to making a much larger, much cooler display as a group than anyone can do on their own (without really deep pockets).

Suggestions for Lego video

I’m taking all the pics I took this year and making a movie/video.  Almost finished but I need ideas for music…. what kind of music do you hear in the background when doing your Lego’s?  I need about 5-6 songs because the video is looking to last at least 30 min.  I’ll be bringing a rough copy of it to see on my laptop before the mtg. in April if I can get it finished.  Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, I’m at a lost for that part.  Thanks in advance.
