A few years ago, when I was interested in other things like malt whisky, LEGO decided to create a x-cross track for their 9V Train sets. But when the system moved from the 9V Train tracks to the new plastic tracks without electricity the x-cross track disappeared.
How is that possible?! How is it possible that LEGO stopped creating one of the most fun LEGO tracks, the one that creates the most stunning accidents. So much fun loss…
But cry no more. Miguel is here to help you restore your faith. This is a tutorial to build a x-cross track out of common LEGO plates and tiles. I was able to built two of them for around 10€ ( around £8.50 )… if you think that the only way of getting a x-cross track now is using eBay and that it usually goes to 50€-60€… a nice saving.
Here is the list of materials that you need. Some of them are mandatory, like the little 1×2 tiles with knob, but others simply make the construction more robust.
24 1×2 plates with 1 knob
14 2×2 tile
4 2×2 plate
2 1×4 tile
4 2×2 plate with 1 knob
1 4×4 plate
1 6×6 plate
Watch the video, I built it on real-time so you shouldn’t have problems following me.
Enjoy! And if you liked it, please share.
