    Package have arrived. I connected front car directly to transformer and put it in the air - without load and friction from rails. I gave it a little juice and it works! No strange sounds etc. Now I must check if it works on rails with proper load.
  4. A work around is placing the set in a 'custom list'. The are found under 'My LEGO' in the menu. These lists for parts and sets are aside from your Parts Lists and Sets Lists, and don't 'count' in your collection. You can also make these custom list public, so you can share them with someone else.
  5. I would also like this feature, especially if it's present for both set lists and parts lists.
  6. Right now it's possible to exclude a set list from build calculations, but it would be great to have a second option to exclude the list from all statistics. It would be almost like the list didn't exist. This way it would be possible to create list of sets that someone doesn't own, but would like to build or purchase. The checkbox could be displayed in the "Edit List Details" section: [X] Include these Sets in Statistics It would be checked by default for all lists, just like the " Use these Sets in Build calculations" checkbox.

    it can handle 12V it's a 12V engine. it suppose to run at that voltage. besides it depends how you plug it in. if you do it with the same setup as the rail it will be regulated with the power regulator, the other outages is direct, ie if you have the one that allow you to extend with button kits to the left. which fit the time period. as long as you don't mix in any 4,5V parts or engine you will be fine.Those are the ones kids fry due to their lack of electronic knowledge.

    Is it safe to plugin directly, won't it get full 12V at once? Thanks for help!
  10. Folks, does anyone know when LEGO added Cross Support to the common bricks (2x3 / 2x4)? I get the impression this was the same moment when they added small inner supports to the 2x2 brick, and, probably at the same time, made the walls of the 2x2 a fraction thinner. (Yeah, Biodreamer, still working on that... -smile-) I am not sure I can trust bricklink for this, as they seem to think that the 3001old was in production between 1954 - 2006, and 2006 seems very unlikely. For the 3002old they claim 1954 - 1989, but I still think that is rather late. Anyone know where I can find more information? Thanks, Simon

    First of all you need to give it some juice, it will buzz if your don't give it enough. it will simply not have enough power to move the wheels with motor and whatever build you have on it when testing. if you max it out and it still don't move an other things to remember is that those old rails may have gotten a bit dirty/rusty so you might either want to clean them, if you get the motor to run, let it run alone at fast speed round and round to rub it off before adding more load to it. otherwise use the cable from the transformer and plug it straight to the motor and if it still don't move there is something wrong with the motor, you can try to pick it apart to see if anything is jamming the cogs inside.

    This offer has also 7859 but it doesn't work electricaly (manually is ok). Also there is 7864 and 7856 (which buzzes). I can't find any information how was this set electrified without transformer - it's not listed on bricklink/peeron.

    A 30 year old transformer might indeed buzz a little, but I would be more worried about an untested motor. Transformers are easy to come by, as long as they are 12V regulated you can use any type or model, but if the train motor is defect, you don't have a train that works...
  14. Hello I'm going to buy 7745 train, I got eyes on one offer howether owner said transformers is buzzing, motor makes some sound but he doesn't want to start motor because if afraid it will broke. Is it correct 12v transformer behaviour?

    Old type windows (part 27, 29, 31, etc.)

    Adrien, I'd like to do this part by part, if you don't mind, and by keeping all our remarks in this thread, we can ensure consistency in part names and such, okey? Let's start with the humble 3087. This is what we currently have: 3087 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic, No Glass [Undetermined Type] 3087a Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill and Solid Stud, No Glass 3087ac01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Solid Stud [Complete] 3087b Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill, No Glass 3087bc01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill [Complete] 3087c Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Short Sill, No Glass 3087c01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic [Complete] [Undetermined Type] 3087cc01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Short Sill [Complete] Both Undetermined Types are disabled, so you can't see them, but we do need them for import translation. The History: Between 1949 and 1955 LEGO produced three windows and a door with wings that fit into slotted bricks. In early 1954 the tall classic windows/doors with wings were introduced, while by the end of 1954 we got the regular classic window/door sizes, but still with wings and without glass. Smallest size, however, was the 1x2x2. The first 1x1x1 window was introduced in 1956, with a solid stud, long sill or ledge, made from Cellulose Acetate, and sold without glass (Denmark only - 3087a) and with glass (elsewhere - 3087ac01). Between 1958 and 1970 it had a hollow stud, long sill or ledge, and was only sold with glass (3087bc01). However, the glass could fall out of the part, so parts without glass do exist, but were never used in regular sets (3087b). In 1963 LEGO switched from Cellulose Acetate to ABS, but the part remained the same. In 1970 the long sill or ledge was replaced by a short sill or ledge, and still only sold with glass (3087cc01). In 1975 the glass was removed (3087c) and this version remained in production until 1987. 1956 3087ac01 Long Sill or Ledge, Cellulose Acetate, Solid Stud, Glass 1956 3087a Long Sill or Ledge, Cellulose Acetate, Solid Stud, No Glass (Denmark only) 1958 3087bc01 Long Sill or Ledge, Cellulose Acetate, Hollow Stud, Glass 1958 3087b Long Sill or Ledge, Cellulose Acetate, Hollow Stud, No Glass (not in regular sets) 1963 3087bc01 Long Sill or Ledge, ABS, Hollow Stud, Glass 1963 3087bc01 Long Sill or Ledge, ABS, Hollow Stud, No Glass (not in regular sets) 1970 3087cc01 Short Sill or Ledge, ABS, Hollow Stud, Glass 1975 3087c Short Sill or Ledge, ABS, Hollow Stud, No Glass 1987 end of production (this is what I could dig up, if I am right I propose to add this info to the part notes of all 3087 parts, with part numbers linking to each other) Part Names I think we should not use [Complete] (sold without glass is still complete) but use with Glass and without Glass consistantly: 3087 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic without Glass [Undetermined Type] 3087a Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill, Solid Stud without Glass 3087ac01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill, Solid Stud with Glass 3087b Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill without Glass 3087bc01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill with Glass 3087c Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Short Sill without Glass 3087c01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Glass [Undetermined Type] 3087cc01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Short Sill with Glass Part Relationships I agree with Adrien that all these parts are alternates, and we have five mold groups: 3087ac01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill, Solid Stud with Glass 3087bc01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill with Glass 3087cc01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Short Sill with Glass are molds of 3087 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic without Glass [Undetermined Type] 3087a Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill, Solid Stud without Glass 3087b Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill without Glass 3087c Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Short Sill without Glass are molds of 3087c01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Glass [Undetermined Type] 3087ac01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill, Solid Stud with Glass is mold of 3087a Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill, Solid Stud without Glass 3087bc01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill with Glass is mold of 3087b Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Long Sill without Glass 3087cc01 Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Short Sill with Glass is mold of 3087c Window 1 x 1 x 1 Classic with Short Sill without Glass

    Old type windows (part 27, 29, 31, etc.)

    Hi Simon, I've investigated a bit further, and it looks like our current numbering system is a mix of the Peeron scheme and Bricklink numbers. The Peeron system is as follows: suffix "a" / "b" / "c" for variants A / B / C suffix "c01" with glass the variant for slotted bricks is not listed The Bricklink system: no suffix for the later variant (C) suffix "a" / "b" for variants A / B suffix "c01" with glass, except for the larger sizes of variant C that existed with fixed glass only (e.g. in size 1 x 2 x 1 you have 27 / 27c01, but in size 1 x 4 x 2 you have 453 alone) suffix "c" for slotted bricks (perhaps a late addition) The two systems are consistent but incompatible. Currently at Rebrickable we have a mix of both, for example we have parts 645 / 645c / 645cc01, which is unfortunate. The Bricklink system is maybe a little better because a plain number is used for the most common variant, and because it does not create a number for non-existent parts (variant C without glass in larger size). All the best, Adrien P.S.: in the above list of parts, I forgot 604 (size 1 x 6 x 3).

    Old type windows (part 27, 29, 31, etc.)

    Hi, Adrien, You got me interested! -smile- I completely agree that there is a lot wrong with older parts (pre 1970), and there is a lot of room for improvement. I also agree on the need for a more consistent naming system for these parts, and, at least, a good image that shows the differences between all the variants, and some additional description wouldn't hurt either. As to renumbering these parts, in general, I don't think that is a good idea. At first glace, all these parts seem to be based upon the original Peeron/LDraw part numbers, which means that these numbers have been in use for at least 25 years, and changing them just for the sake of consistency is, as far as I am concerned, out of the question. Many, many people have these parts in their part lists, or own sets that contain these parts, and they all use these numbers, and would get very frustrated if we start changing them. Give me 24 hours to look into this, and then I wil get back to you. Take care, Simon
  18. Currently the situation at Rebrickable is a bit messy for older windows (pre-minifig). This applies to parts 27, 29, 31, 453, 645, 646, 3081, 3087. As far as I can see, there were at least three mold variants for each size: Variant A has an extended sill and solid studs. It seems to date from the mid-1950s, and was offered in accessory sets either with a fixed glass or with no glass (sets 1230-2 and 1231-2). Variant B has an extended sill and hollow studs. It was made in the 1960s. It seems that most sizes have a removable glass (but not 1 x 1 x 1). Variant C has a short sill, hollow studs and a fixed glass. It was made from the early 1970s onwards. Some (smaller) sizes were offered without glass in a few sets. Some sizes have a fourth variant (D) for slotted bricks, with no studs at the top, that is certainly very early. There are many conflicting names applied to all these parts, and I suggest to adopt a common naming pattern, e.g. "Window classic [with solid studs OR with long sill OR with short sill] [no glass OR complete]". I also suggest that all parts have the same numbering scheme. The most consistent scheme is that used for size 1 x 1 x 1, with variants 3087a, 3087ac01, 3087b, 3087bc01, 3087c, 3087cc01. Other sizes are less consistent, for example size 1 x 6 x 2 has number 645 for variant C without glass (does it even exist in this size?), 645c for variant D (for slotted bricks) and 645cc01 for variant C with glass. Finally I suggest that all parts of the same size are treated as alternate of each other, and all parts with glass are treated as mold variants (same without glass). This is currently the case for most sizes but not all. I started to file individual change requests, but now I think that a more systematic action is needed by a moderator.

    Why is 10717 not listed?

    I've copied the id's from the instructions and raised a change request for the missing parts which are 4 each of: Lego ID, Part, Colour 4655257, 88072 Plate Special 1 x 2 with Arm Up [Horizontal Arm 5mm], Tan (19) 6139460, 59900 Cone 1 x 1 [Top Groove], Trans-Light Blue (41) 6100234, 3710 Plate 1 x 4, Sand Green (378) The cone is the rarest of these having been introduced last year in 4 sets.

    Why is 10717 not listed?

    Correct. We import the inventory from the same place. But there are often parts missing, usually indicating they won't be available in the PaB online as well. That's why we always need to check the instructions (when available)
  21. Simon

    Why is 10717 not listed?

    Greetings, Folks! @Lunex- don't bother uploading images, LEGO has already released the instruction pdf (here) and that contains an overview of all the parts. I can grab that list, convert it into a .csv file and upload it to one of my custom lists - then I can use the Compare Sets feature to find out which parts were missing. Has been put on my toto list for tomorrow... -smile-
  22. slangivar

    Why is 10717 not listed?

    I suspect the inventory on Brickset is coming from the same official LEGO source as the one on Rebrickable. If you don't have time to compare the inventory from the box then if you upload a picture of it someone else will be able to compare them and locate the missing 12.

    Including parts from my parts list

    Look at your list of Part Lists. They are probably excluded from the search, resulting in 0 of 70288 parts included
  26. Hello I'll be glad to have an option to find a set contains most of my wanted part list. Very simiilar to the suggestion sets when we're looking for specific set just with part list.. Thanks, AssafK

    Including parts from my parts list

    When I want to build a moc or search based on how many parts i have to build a moc or set the search does not include my parts list despite it being selected. Is there something I'm doing wrong?
