Re: Stackpole

It is a long time ago I did something in, and looked at, Gn15. I thought Gn15 was dead. But no, it's alive!

Please go on, I need to be triggered just a bit more.....

Re: Dimensions for a loco and wagon?

Hi Paul, Welkom here. I did do something in Gn15 long time ago. But I am thinking about a new project in this scale so, who knows.... I remember having the same questions as I started. Then I went to a narrow gauge museum. The width of a gritter or a lorry is about 80 cm to 120 cm for the big ones. ...

pcb strips

Hi, I used to solder track on pcb strips. I used to buy these from a firm called SMP. But it doesn't seem to exist anymore. Does anyone know where I can buy these pcb strips? All I find is PCB sheet from glass fiber filled epoxy, which I am unable to drill/mill/saw. So ready to go strips would be ve...

Hi Christoph,

Welkom here. I like your flatcar. Show more of your work!
Green is for unused cars standing under trees year in year out.....
If the car is currently 'im Einsatz' it would probably gain less moss...?

New motor for UE Inspectionvehicle

Hi, I managed to kill the motor of one of my UE Inspectionvehicles. It's a shame, I know, and now I want to, no, simply have to, remotor it. I thought I use a low-voltage motor for running it on a 3,7 Volt Lipo. The range of N20 minimotors is stunning, at least I feel it that way.... In order to mak...

Today the spare wheelset arrived. I changed the wheels with tires for those without. The bogie does now what it has to: running.

As an extra I now have two wheelsets with tires and with gears! Those will make fine rc+batterie bogies :wink:

Hi All,

Thank you all for your replies!

I think I go for Gecko's suggestion, and additionally put extra weight.

By the way, I found out that it also runs on a 3,7 volt (Lipo) battery, so mayby I can, as a next option, use it for radio control drive.....

Thanks again!

Hi all, I thought this: HORNBY X6305 COMPLETE DRIVE UNIT 4 VEP (R2947) MOTOR BOGIE NEW OO GAUGE would make a fine drive unit for a little critter in 1:35. It came unwired so I had do that first. But it also came with two anti-slip tires and I feel those are to thick. It waggles on three wheels an ru...

Sorry for digging this old thread up again.

Stefan, Ernie runs fine with an ordinary transformer, even better on a battery. At full speed there is no problem. Simon, There are no technical details on the Gaugemaster.

Hi all, Recently a friend gave me a Gaugemaster. Before that I used my good old Fleischmann transformer. Now I have problems with the Bachmann-driveunit from the UE-inspection-vehicle. It runs bad in combination with the Gaugemaster at low speed. Not smooth but shock-wise. What can I do about it? Al...
