comment Is it safe to overload LEGO train motors?
You could add multiple motors (two motors per unit, plus B units!) and gear them up to shoot for higher speed. That way, you can burn out four motors at a time instead of just one. :)

comment Are there plans to release new trains for AFOL?
I suggest rephrasing the question: what plans have been announced? Does Lego have a schedule or patterns for this kind of thing? Those sorts of questions would invite good, constructive answers.

comment Starting out with trains: PF, RC, 9v or what?
I've poked around for 2nd-hand track, and it's all grossly more expensive than stuff straight from the Store. Lego is always a collectors item. You're prolly best off going straight for PF.

comment What parts are really required to motorize 10219 Maersk Train?
I did this mod last night. The train motor is about $14, the battery box $13, the IR receiver $15. Assuming you have a remote control ($13) and batteries, you're good to go.
