LEGO LOCO is all about building and running the best train set that you 
can imagine, on your computer! You can make your own tracks and 
towns with lots of different LEGO elements... and then watch them 
come to life! 


Switches and points allow you to control all of your trains as they travel 
from station to station, whisking your LEGO Minifigures around the town 
that you have built for them. Your creation will grow as you add to it, 
and there will be plenty of surprises along the way as you uncover 
hidden events and new and exciting elements. 








I’m here to help make sure that all the LEGO trains run on time and

How to play with LEGO LOCO 


When playing with LEGO LOCO there are two ‘modes’. When the Toyoox Trays 
is open LOCO is in ‘Edit’ mode. You can place elements, move or delete 
existing ones and alter your layout. When the Toybox is closed LOCO is 
in ‘Play’ mode. The layout you have created will come to life and you 
can play with all the exciting things in your new world.

Postcards 


To send a postcard you must make sure that you have a working Post Office. 
There are two types of post that you can send. 


e Internet post (to friends and other users running LEGO LOCO) 
(details on page 22 “international postcards” ) 


¢ Mystery post. To Santa, Nessie, the Mayor etc. 
Although your PC does not need to be connected to the Internet to send 
and receive Mystery postcards, both types of mail require you to have a 


working mail route within your LEGO LOCO layout. 


To send mail you must place a post office on a train track. Trains pulling a mail 
carriage must be able to get from the post office to a tunnel. 


Post Office 


The Post Office contains everything you need to 
write, design, store and send postcards to your 
friends. 


Left Click on the Post Office. Here you will find the 
postman at his desk. You can click on the items 
around him to access everything related to the Post 
Office. 





There is a book on the desk that will take you to your postcard album (to 
store your postcards), a ‘Pen And Pencil Pot’ to take you to the postcard 
editor (to create or edit postcards) and a rubbish bin (drop postcards in this 
to delete them). 





Receiving and Saving Postcards 


A pile of postcards next to the postman means that you have received 
postcards from somebody! 


You can click on this pile of postcards to view them. The postman will hold 
each one up individually for you as you click on the pile. 


> 


You can see the reverse text side of each card by clicking the ‘flip’ 
button. 





All cards can be sent to your Postcard Aloum for safekeeping. Simply click 
on the card, your cursor will change into a mini- 
postcard, now click on the Postcard Aloum sitting on 
the desk. This card will now be saved into the Album. 

In the same way you can send a card to the editor, instead 

of clicking on the Aloum click on the Pen and Pencil Pot. 





In the same way as placing a card in the Postcard Aloum, 
you can delete a postcard. Click on the postcard and drag it 
into the Rubbish Bin.

Postcard Aloum 


The Postcard Aloum is where you can store all of your favourite Postcards. 
¢ They are filed alphabetically under the sender’s name. 


* Click on one of the coloured Alphabetical tabs to jump through the 
pages. 


* Click on the left and right arrows to turn over the page. 
* Click on the ‘Flip’ icon to see the reverse of the card. 
The cards can be dragged to the editor or Post Office in the usual way: 


1. Click on the card to pick it up, the cursor will change to show a miniature 
Postcard. 


2. Now click on any of the buttons to send the Postcard to their destination 
(e.g. Rubbish Bin, Postcard Editor or Post Office). 


Postcard Editor 


The Postcard Editor is where you can create new postcards, write 
messages, change existing postcards and attach files. 












Editing Postcards 


On the left hand side of the screen is a stack of drawers, each of 
which contains a ‘set’ of clipart that can be placed on the picture 
side of the postcard. 


Click on a drawer to view the set of clipart. The art will scroll in on 
the conveyor belt. 





a wu 


To select a piece of clipart just click on it. This can now be placed 
anywhere on the front of the Postcard. 





Click the Right Mouse Button to de-select any piece of clipart, the cursor 
will now change back to the hand. 


Some clipart may have different colours. The buttons below the conveyor 
belt will swap between the available clipart colours, or sub-sets. 





The colour of the Postcard’s background can be altered by mixing paint. 
Three pipes hanging above the Postcard will mix different amounts of Red, 
Yellow and Blue paint onto the background. 





oxtesiccl EE LE EEL 





a  eysre-scelt TELE Ee sres|cels TT 


Click the Left Mouse Button on one of the mixers to increase the amount of 
colour, click the Right Mouse Button to decrease the amount of colour. 


There is a selection of ten Bottles next to the drawers, these contain some 
pre-set colours, Left click on one of these to instantly fill the background of 


the Postcard with that colour. 


To write a message, add a stamp and address the postcard you 
Ly must flip over to the text side of the Postcard. Click on the flip 

icon. 
Postage Stamps on the Conveyor Belt are just for decoration, you do not 
have to place one for the postcard to work. 






Click on the left hand side of the Postcard to write a message. 


Click on the Right hand side to 
Address the Postcard, a list will 
show all of the availaole people 


Ny that can receive a Postcard. 


If you address a card to ‘SwapShop@WWW’ you can send it via Modem 
to the LEGO LOCO Post Office, where it will be forwarded to another 


LOCO user, who could live anywhere! Pretty soon you may receive 
Postcards from people all around the world! PLEASE NOTE You must have 


a Modem connected to the Internet for this to work. 
It is possible to attach small files to the postcard, and then 
send them to a friend (only when using a LAN and direct 
TCP/IP Internet connection). Click on the Paperclip Button to 


attach a file. 





This will bring up a Windows style Browse window, from here you can 
Browse through your drives to find the file you wish to attach. 


Posting Your Card 


Once the card has been addressed (see previous), you can post your 
card. Either Click on the Mailoox, or left click on the Postcard (picture side, 
or on the ‘From’ area on the text side) and drag the Postcard cursor over 


the Mailbox and click the Left Mouse Button. 
Remember a train with a mail carriage attached must visit your Post Office if 


you want to send and receive any postcards.

Single User 

In single user mode (choosing the Single Station Master button on the start 
screen) you will be able to create your own layout and help your mini-figs 
travel around that layout. 


By placing blue tunnels you can send Postcards to several LOCO characters, 
(e.g. The Professor). A train carrying a card addressed to one of these 
characters will leave through the Blue Tunnel and deliver a card to them... 
who knows, they may even send you a reply! 


International Postcards 

If you have a MODEM and an Internet connection you can send random 
postcards in Single User Mode to other LEGO LOCO users around the 
world. Remember, for any train to leave your computer you must have 
placed a Blue International Tunnel. 


Trains carrying Postcards will leave your layout and travel to the LEGO LOCO 
International Post Office Sorting Computer, from here it will travel around the 
world to who knows where. If you are lucky you may receive a Postcard 
from someone from another country! 


To send a postcard please ensure that your modem is switched on and 
that you have connected to the Internet. Now start LEGO LOCO and 

design your card. Address your card to ‘SwapShop@WWww’ (from the 
pop down list) and make sure a postal train takes it out of a Blue Tunnel.

In National Mode, up to nine people can connect to a huge LEGO LOCO 
layout. Each individual can take control of a certain part of the National 
Map, and can build layouts as normal. 























The cool thing about National Mode is that you can send trains and e-mails 
and attachments to anyone connected to your session.

To play with LOCO, single Player, 
making use of the Internet Server 


The required version of DirectX 6 will be installed by the LOCO 

Installer. Ensure that you have Winsock Installed (you can achieve this oy 
installing an Internet Browser) 

Make the connection to your Internet service provider 

NOTE: this must not be firewall protected 

Start LOCO 

Select single player and then click the tick button 

When LEGO LOCO is running, open the Toybox track tray and select a BLUE 
tunnel (this has a picture of two heads on the side). Lay the tunnel down at 
the side of the LEGO LOCO screen. 


Connect the tunnel with track. 


Select and place a Post Office building (this is in the track section of the 
Toyoox). 


Close the Toyoox. 
Right click on the Post Office this will take you to the ‘Mail Sort’ window. 
Select the Pen Pot on the desk to take you to the Paint Factory Window. 


Create a postcard, address it to Anyone’, this is the address for connecting 
to the LEGO LOCO postcard server. 


Pick up the postcard and drop it in the letterbox. 
Click on the letteroox again to go to the mail sort window. 


There should be a BAG visible in the outgoing mail area of the window, this 
shows that your postcard is waiting for a train. 


Exit to the LOCO desktop. 


Create a train "With A Mail Carriage" (do this by right clicking on a train 
depot) 


Ensure the train passes your post office and then route it to the blue tunnel 
you previously placed. 


You can check that it has picked up the postcard by right clicking on the 
post office again and the outgoing bag should have disappeared 


When the train enters the blue tunnel the postcard will be sent to the 
Internet server for processing. 


If the LOCO desktop fails to contact the Internet server it will place a 
YELLOW postcard in your post office and the post office will animate to 
attract your attention. The postcard will have text indicating that there was a 
network error. 


If the server is successfully contacted a new train will enter your desktop 
from the blue tunnel this will be carrying a returned postcard. You should 
route this train to your post office in order to unload the postcard. 

In due course your original train will return, without any postcards on 
board. 


When the new train exits your desktop through a blue tunnel it will be 
deleted. 


If you send one postcard to the server it will return one, send two and it 
returns two, send three and it returns three, etc.

Easter Eggs 





There are many special hidden events that you can discover and elements 
to place on your layout in LEGO LOCO. Some will happen only at certain 
times, others you will only be able to discover by building your LEGO 
LOCO world carefully. Some are easy to find, some will take a lot of 
experimenting. We have called these EASTER EGGS. 


Have you seen the Rainoow? How about the Loch Ness Monster or the 
Super Station Master? 


Have you found more Easter Eggs than your friends? 


Why not send a postcard to us at LEGO telling us of your discoveries? (See 
International Postcards in this manual)

Epilepsy Warning 

Please read before using any video game or allowing your children to use it. 

Some people are liable to have an epileptic seizure or loss of consciousness when exposed to 
flashing lights or certain normal conditions of everyday life. Such persons could risk a seizure 
while watching televised images or while playing certain video games, and this can occur even if 
there have been no previous medical problems or experience of epilepsy. 

If you or a member of your family has ever shown epileptic symptoms (seizure or loss of 
consciousness) when exposed to flickering lights, consult your doctor before playing. 

Parents should supervise their children’s use of video games. If you or your children experience 
any of the following symptoms — dizziness, altered vision, eye or muscle twitches, loss of 
consciousness, disorientation, involuntary movements or convulsions — discontinue use

Play video games preferably on a small screen. Do not play if you are tired or have not had much 
sleep. Make sure that the room in which you are playing is well lit. Rest for 10-15 minutes per 
hour while playing video games.
