Swooftys PFS B-unit

Peter Norman (Swoofty) and Tony Sava have been playing around with Peter’s Franken-Loco. Since the older style 9V trains (with powered track) have been retired in favour of forthcoming Power-Functions System (PFS) based designs this offers some handy insight on how to switch over earlier with the existing PFS elements.

    Some nice ideas on making a poor system a little better. But that’s quite an expensive method. I’ll keep buying 2nd hand 9volt while I can. Let’s hope Lego’s 2009 train system is better.

    Hooray, I coined a term!

    While I’m not about to replace my 9v trains, the Power Functions system isn’t poor as far as I can see. The motors are incredibly more powerful than even the 9v train motors; the only real issue for the future of trains is how small can they make the battery box.
