I may or may not be there- we'll have been married 18 years that day, so it depends on if Andrea wants another Lego meeting for an anniversary present !

I am particularly attracted to the Beaver, it looks the job, even if the real ones were mostly yellow for visibility reasons. (somewhere I have a MNR (Ontario) poster of them from the early 80's, when the CL415's were new)

No wonder the master builders failed to take the tower on the first attack, they are lucky the sea cow didn't become the sea-submarine :)

(note where the cannon are placed...several full sized ships suffered from similar design flaws !)

Really, you have to consider how you build to consider what is the best way to sort. I tend towards part/colour division, but remember, it is usually easier to seperate out by colour than by part...(don't sort by colour, is my strong suggestion !)

Motorizing the TS3 train

I know it is possible to motorize the Toy Story 3 train, there was one at BrickCon that was done. Apparently, it uses the regular (6 AAA) battery pack, not the Li Ion rechargable battery pack. Basically, it used the outside portions of the boxcar (with the $ signs on the doors) to surround the gear ...
