Re: Possible source of remote control

It looks like about 32 mm gauge. So possibly o gauge track. The loco is about 94 mm long, and the radio needs to be line of sight. I will keep going backwards if out of range. Not sure about forward.
More to come.

Possible source of remote control

It is not radio but infrared but that could be OK. I will be careful when I disassemble it so we can use it for a Christmas present if it does not work out. You need a special triangle screwdriver to open it, so good old Amazon came through. It has a powerful motor and radio system, and the quality ...

It actually ran quite smooth but either the camera or Youtube screws up the motion. Oh well.

Re: In A Bit Of Estate

I like the way you chose a big, high torque motor to run that engine. Should be smooth and slow.

Re: Finally a new loco start

Well I managed to get the bare chassis together using of all things, gum, to hold it. I couldn't find the BlueTac. Gum is far stickier, but it did work. It still has a "Hitch in it's getalong" so I am going to alternate plan B. Photos in a few minutes. We are waiting for the post where the...

Re: Finally a new loco start

Hey Cats I kinda got lucky with the motor (cheap) and had a selection of brass metric tubing from somewhere so the 2mm shaft fit the worm perfectly and I just had to glue the motor in and a bushing on the other end into the existing motor mount. Works far better than the original motor, but slow (li...

Finally a new loco start

After some years of not finishing stuff I decided to start a Baby Mallet. Here are the results of this start. The motor is a Faulhaber geared 100:1 with a coreless motor. It runs slow but very steady.

That is a great looking van. The brake system looks quite realistic to me. Wheels could be a bit bigger as you said. Overall wonderful design and execution.

Re: Herb Deeks Mine Train complete

Thanks Chris. They even give you little bags of ball bearings to glue in as weight. I would love to see your built up version of the loco, since your skills are legendary. The parts fit pretty well for an old resin kit. Probably from an early pouring.
Thanks
