Playing with LEGO Train Tracks: Slopes, x-crosses and levels

Hello there. No, no, I am not dead. I am so busy that I have almost no time to write here… but I am working actively on two LEGO areas: robots and trains. And today I want to share with you two of my latest creations.


I have created two different layouts to work with slopes. First, the longest LEGO Train track with several switch tracks that I have built so far.

And then this past weekend I have built a two levels loop using ramp up and down to the sides and Horizon Express.

Now I am just waiting for the new LEGO Trains ( and Train Station )that are going to be release this summer so that I can get more tracks and more trains to make it even bigger and better! :)

  1. Hello, do you put 2 motors in the tgv? 2 in the front loco or 1 in the front loco and 1 in the back loco? thanks for your answer.

    1. I used just one motor… and low charged batteries. With full batteries it moved fast enough. If you have a powerfunctions switch ( or a very long long cable ) you can just add another IR on the back and reverse polarity on the motor there…
      I should try it myself…

      1. I’m in a Condo, so its good to see you can squeeze it in the space. What did you make the raised track supports out of. So far I can tell its lattice tower, black and white and grey brick, and then some kind of length of plank.

  3. Hi, how many lego scaffold pieces did you use to support the elevated tracks? Do you have a rough ballpark number? I’m trying to put together a grocery list of lego bricks to order online and I would like to build myself an almost similar setup with an elevated track.
