LEGO GBC - Tri Wheel Lane Splitter, by Stork | Planet GBC

Tri Wheel Lane Splitter

Tri-Wheel Lane Splitter is a beautiful GBC module from the Swedish GBC builder Stork. This big black and lime Great Ball Contraption module is using three giant wheels (ref: 59521) to convey your favourite LEGO GBC balls to a splitter mechanism, guiding these balls on each side of the module alternatively. You can change the orientation of the exit ramps, opting for one or two exit lanes. The original concept of this module is from Maico Arts. It has been refined and tripled by Dunes and finally customized by Stork with the split system. If you’re the lucky owner of these giant wheels, this build is a must.

  1. Hello . Could you please tell me what cable are you using on that old train controller ? i have one , but can`t find a cable to take power out of it an to my motor . thanks

  2. I want to get my grandson started. Start with one module and add to it. I see instructions, but where do I get the bricks?

    1. hello Marian,

      to reproduce these GBC modules, you need to buy the bricks you miss in your own stock on some marketplaces such as Bricklink, eBay, brickowl….

      The most popular marketplace to buy LEGO bricks is Bricklink: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/main.page. The website gathers thousand of vendors worldwide.

      If you want to reproduce this exact Tri-Wheel Lane Splitter GBC module. Then, you need to download the parts list above (“Bricklink Wanted List”) and you need to “upload” this file on Bricklink.
      The following video on Planet GBC explains how to proceed with the file to acquire the bricks you need on Bricklink: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nz3mzDBjLI

      One major attention point is that buying bricks on market places is unfortunately not trivial and can be very frustrating: you have very often to order your bricks to several vendors, you have to wait for the bricks to arrive, you have to track your inventory…
      This demanding process is discouraging a lot of the motivated new comers.

      For your grandson, I advise you to start with a LEGO GBC that you can entirely build with the parts from a LEGO commercial set. In such case, you ‘just” have to buy the commercial set and the building instructions, then your grandson is good to go. You save a lot of frustrations.
      The website PV-Productions has specialized itself in such builds. You’ll find a vitrine of the builds on Planet GBC: https://www.planet-gbc.com/constructeurgbc-pv-productions/

      For a very first attempt with GBC, I would recommend to start with an easy build like:

      or
      https://www.planet-gbc.com/gbcmodule-pv-productions-gbc38-funkyferriswheel/

      and don’t forget to buy GBC balls (beams or marbles can also do the trick for some GBC modules):

      Welcome to the world of GBC and keep me informed about how your grandson will like it
