Have you ever thought that it would be awesome to combine the capabilities of Lego with Arduino? This is exactly what TiagoStantos has done with his Arduino controlled Lego train system.
The Arduino is used to enable the train to sound a whistle as it approaches the station and when stop at the platform. The project includes full code examples and is sure to inspire you to create more interesting combinations between Lego and Arduino.
To get started learn how you can control your Lego train system with Arduino checkout the following link.
If you are looking to get started on this project why not check out our ProtoShield for Arduino. The ProtoShield is an excellent tool to turn your temporary, breadboarded project into something more permanent. Proto Shields fit directly onto an Arduino board and have a large general purpose area in the middle where you can solder on your own parts to create a durable, long lasting project! The ProtoShield is a high quality, corrosion resistant gold plated PCB and represents great value at only $3!
