Monorail Train (7w) with PowerFunctions

E This PF monorail train was built in May 2013 – a time when the moving cars were still far away. Anyhow the monorail will be an important part of the future city – there’s nothing that can replace this amazing concept.

In my view the existing monorail can be integrated very well in smaller city layouts, but I wanted to have something that moves more realistically than the usual monorail trains with their high speed and abrupt stops. So I opted for a MR with PowerFunctions that can move very slowly. And since most of the cars are 7 studs wide to be able to fit the figs side by side, the train has the same width.

Functions:

  • working headlights and backlights (PF)
  • interior lighting (9V)
  • openable front door (manually)
  • detachable roofs

The train is quite heavy (around 0,6 kilogrammes) but that doesn’t seem to be a problem, neither for the engine nor the tracks – until now, that is. I am watching these aspects thoroughly. The train is controlled by an 8879 Speed Remote Control. Capacity: 10 minifigures.
