This is a way to make LEGO City Train Junctions go outwards instead of inwards which saves you precious LEGO City building space!
You may have seen my previous video, LEGO Train Junctions Shorter Crossover Hack, that I’m not afraid to injure some LEGO Track in the interest of saving some precious LEGO City build space. Watch the LEGO Train Junctions Shorter Crossover Hack video.
This hack takes that idea a step further and was something that was suggested on Facebook based on the idea of cutting the track in a couple of strategic spots. What you be doing is taking the bit you removed from the left junction and putting in on a right LEGO Train Junction, and vice-versa. Doing that, your left junction then exits left, rather than sort of straight.
Why would you want to do this? It saves sooooo much space! Seriously! This is why 4DBrix and TrixBrix exist. They sell a version of this idea for this exact reason. OK, their method doesn’t involve cutting track as they use 3D Printing. And one other thing… This is not something you can undo. It is a permanent change to the track. The aftermarket ones can be changed freely.
This opens up a lot of opportunity such as a much denser train yard for example (something I’m very keen on! You can also do things like creating a neat crossover point – I’ll show that in some photos on my website.
