comment What are some examples of advanced train layouts possible with the PF train sets?
So if the track elevates at 2 plates per straight piece, then in order to reach 12 bricks high I'd need about 2.3m of track in one direction. Hm, that's pretty long.

does your math account for the fact that the shape isn't technically triangular?

comment Why is there such a small supply of dark red 1x4 bricks?
It's worth adding to this that LEGO knows that people want certain parts and can't get them, which is why a lot of the new sets aimed at adults (Tower bridge, architecture, Sopwith Camel, etc) often come with a lot of a specific part. eg: the Sopwith Camel comes with 63 3x1 tiles in dark green. I wouldn't be surprised if a set comes out with a ton of dark red parts at some point, specifically to appease people like the OP.

comment How should I create a Heroica scale graveyard or crypt room?
Is that jumper fence supposed to use 1x1 plates? If so, wouldn't it require a 1x1 plate with a hole in the stud?
