    Here's a "switching point" (I'm not sure what they're called): the little tabs in the slots will activate the mechanism if your train is coming from the "wrong" branch, so you don't get derailed.

    I'll reassemble the track and take some video. I've never posted video before, so if I break the forum, I'm sorry!

    I can't figure out how to get the video from my phone to here! Sorry.

    I can't figure out how to get the video from my phone to here! Sorry.
    I don't believe it's possible to directly upload video to the forum. Either the video would have to be uploaded to a video sharing site (like YouTube, Vimeo, etc) or put in a shared public folder like on Dropbox or Google Drive and that link shared.

    In other words, it's a lot more involved than just simply sharing a photo.

    @560Heliport
    I have all 4 Unitron sets and they are among my favorite space subtheme. It's too bad they were limited to just 4 sets.  I have a monorail running between each end of my city, and ended up getting the track from #6399 Airport Shuttle from someone who posted an advertisement for them here on Brickset and actually lived very close to me. I think it was a hundred bucks total, which I could've easily spent on just the straight track pieces. Later that night I was showing the monorail track to a friend who was over for drinks and explained how rare those sets are and how expensive they'd become on the secondary market. I was showing him the listings on eBay and there was #6991 for a buy-it-now of $175.00. One hundred seventy five dollars. All the other ones for sale were 5, 6 hundred bucks. We looked at each other and my buddy says "Mark, click the button." It arrived a few days later almost entirely complete save for a few odds and ends bits. I can't rebuild it in its entirety as the motor and sleds are being used and I'd have to take the train apart, but I know it's there waiting if I ever do. Also, #1789 Star Hawk II is one of my all time favorite sets. 

    You've inspired me to consider filling gaps in my subthemes.  I am missing several M:Tron and Space Police II sets and am concerned that TLG's increasing meddling with BrickLink will make that into something that is no longer a viable option. But that's a discussion for a different thread

    Assembling CMFs one bag at a time isn't as fun as mixing em all up first.

    @560Heliport thanks for the pictures! When did these come out? I vaguely remember being fascinated by them in a catalog with #2152 on it.(I was 8, so 23 years ago, but I thought these are older than me?)
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,601
    The Unitron monorail #6991 came out in 1994, the other three Unitron sets in 1995. They could well have been in a 1997 [email protected] catalog!

    @SumoLego you can go outside and play after you finish painting the basement.

    Today's builds: what I call the "Green Windshield" subset of Classic Space. I really wish I had #6940 Alien Moon Stalker.

    I'm clearly never leaving my house.  Maybe I should actually start building some sets!

    I've also decided to put a drop ceiling in my basement as well.  That should keep me occupied until COVID-32: Electric Boogaloo.

    Nice, @560Heliport! :-)

    I really must rebuild all of mine at some point.

    @KungFuKenny no, just 924. But I have a lot of the other early Classic Space. I remember trying to build a 924 with parts from #462 , #493, and the rest of my bricks. I used the 4x4 radar dishes for the main engines.

    I'll post more Classic Space, I promise! I haven't built them all yet.

    4842 a big mix box of kid lego that i was enthusiastic about but now sore knees ,tired eyes , and missing pieces ,I'm enjoying the build but missing pieces is a killer ,2 manuals and the pieces and manual for left section is missing, I made most of the city sets but there's marvel ,batman and line ranger in there too, I'll try getting rid of them as they're built  ,won't be expecting much -it's clean but kid played and broken up
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,601
    I just put a bunch of white parts in hydrogen peroxide under the blacklight, so the rest of my Classic Space will have to wait a bit. I might build #6769 Fort Legoredo tonight.

    I have that one! Or, well the 2002 reissue. I guess mine is #6762.
  • CymbelineCymbeline CanadaMember Posts: 209
    @560Heliport Wow that set looks brand new and a lot of fun. Kind of like a western castle.

    ^ I'm impressed with your fantasy re-animated minifigure.  

    Definitely not a monster.  Should not be categorized as a monster.

    I don't know what to build tonight... more Classic Space? More Western? Vikings? Pirates? This stay-at-home stuff would be a lot harder without my half-million LEGO!

    Western was such a fun theme! Thanks for sharing @560Heliport! You're right about the train, it does fit in perfectly.

    @pxchris @560Heliport
    As a train nut, I should like to point out that it needs proper steam locomotive driving wheels. Then it will fit in "perfectly". :p

    @Modeltrainman so you want me to tear apart #75955 just for its wheels? Okay, but the HP fans might hate you for it... :-)
