Hello Simon, I hope the images provide inspiration for others on the forum to get something running :wink: It's interesting to see that from time to time such test tracks evolve into nice layouts. :lol: The same has been the case with my Sisal railway. http://www.photodump.com/direct/kk92/Yucatan2.j...

Re: not quite

Hi Andy Klaus, I've just re-read your posting and realised that when you were describing tub-tipper mk III, you're using the term 'tub' for the whole wagon. My 'tubs' are hogshead type things that sit on top of a flat-wagon and need to be lifted off the flat in order to tip them, hence the need to r...

Re: operation for self-propelled trucks and flat wagons

Hi Andy, Steve posted a hogshead tipper and I worked out the geometry to lift a tub from underneath, and tip it. The problem here is that you need three separate motions, not just two: the tines have to slide underneath (forwards and backwards) but then instead of just tipping, you have to lift it u...

Re: Weighty issue

Hi Pete, Having read all postings on minimum curves, I realise my four-wheel flat wagons may be a tad too light for some shunting operations. Can anyone suggest the ideal weight (of lead strip) I shd contemplate gluing to the underside of said wagons? I would pay a visit to the local tyre (or tire i...

Hi Guys,

Now how can I hide a Tenshodo SPUD under the traverser?


There was a prefab concrete parts manufacturer in eastern Germany who used a small loco to power the traverser.

There were may tracks at right angles to the traverser track for storing the concrete elements on small waggons.

Hi Steve, A good idea. Just one improvement to the bearing tube. To reduce the friction of the axle running in the tube, I would make the tube out of a single one with slightly bigger diameter so that two smaller sleaves of a brass tube that fit the axle diameter could be inserted in the ends of the...

My thoughts exactly Ian, not the ideal material for a portable layout :wink: even one this small. You are right, it does look very much like slate, probably not what Michael had in mind :) Perhaps an experiment with smashed light hydrocal rock castings could have the same effect but less weight.
