Classic Town and Classic Trains between 1980 and 1994 plus a bit of Classic Space. All I need now is a room big enough for the layout.

comment Has anyone automated the LEGO hand sorting process beyond “pawing & piling”?
The device in the video is fantastic but is that a UV light it uses to illuminate the bricks for identification? Nooooo! The enemy of the blue/white/light grey brick! But just don't sort your bricks too often and it should be ok :-)

comment How can the 12v Train 7823 Container Depot be used to load container ships as per Lego Catalogue
@Ambo100 - I understand your thinking here but why would they specifically mention 'container ships' rather than just talk about the cargo on the rail cars? Also, they don't mention 'lowered' only 'raised, this fact coupled with the otherwise seemingly pointless hinge on the end of the gantry still makes me think they are referring to this ability to raise the hinged end of the gantry. Maybe there is a 'Lego scene' out there somewhere in an old catalogue or instruction book that shows this set loading a container ship that would solve the mystery? :-)

revised Alternative (back of box) builds of 7822 Railway Station - is there an 'official' configuration where the track terminates at the station?
Edited title to be more of a question rather than just a request.

comment What pieces are prone to breaking?
I too had a few of these pieces break, but not many other pieces. This is only wild speculation on my part, but it may be to do with a combination of two things: Design - Mine cracked horizontally between the studs across the hole, which is probably the weakest point due to the least amount of plastic. Sun exposure: My classic Space sets that used these pieces have quite a lot of fading and maybe the UV exposure made them brittle.

comment What is currently in the LEGO Store Pick A Brick Wall?
@Zhaph - Ben Duguid - Re: 'question closed as too localized' - While I agree that implying that he is interested specifically in his local store the OP has added a 'localised' element to the question, his main question could be applied to any LEGO store. I think that this information has a much wider appeal as would be useful to anyone searching for an inventory of bricks at their specific local store or any LEGO store with a Pick A Brick Wall.
