Kleinzeche Eimerweise "Small Mine Bucket-System"

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Kleinzeche Eimerweise "Small Mine Bucket-System"

Postby Szigligeti Kerti Vasutak » Fri Dec 04, 2009 5:44 pm

:D Hello
i am new in this forum and i introduce me with my small Gn15 layout "KLEINZECHE EIMERWEISE".
Small Mine Bucket System

I was inspired by Carl Arendt's Sqarefoot Estate Railway.
My layout in built in a 43 x 36cm space.

Featured operation is to load an open wagon with coal, move it to the front track via the hidden sector plate, and dump the load off the layout.

The system is akku powered and has two speeds, 7,2V (slow) and 6V (slower)
Backstage you can see the control swiches
More about the building phase on my webside:

Unfortunately only in German :cry:
By the way: [excuse me for my terrible english :oops: :oops:

Greetings from
the cold Nuremberg

Welcome, Christian. I do like your little layout - neat scenery and a very clever tipping mechanism!

Certainly goes to show how many skills are used in model railroading! 8)

Jau! Käääärl Mann, dat paßt wie Aasch auf Eimer! Könnt' direkt so'ne Zeche eimerweise sein wie aus Bochum- Süd oder Minden! In Ibbenbüren hat es auch so was gegeben, bloß die einzigen brauchbaren Bilder aus Ibbenbüren stammen aus der Inflationszeit (in dem Buch Rickelmann/ Röhrs, Der Steinkohlenbergbau in Ibbenbüren, Paderborn 1980). Wäre aber auch keine schlechte Lösung- mit einer alten Oberurseler Lok, die kohle wird dann in einen ollen Benz mit Vollgummireifen abgekippt. Die Brauerei Veltins hat noch so eine Karre als werbefahrzueg...

Hi Christian,
Have you got any details of the chain and sprockets you used on the small bucket loader? The top sprocket shows up well in your video but I haven't seen anything similar down here in oz
