(F) W. H. Atsonur Mine -- APA

Postby Hans H » Thu Mar 01, 2012 9:33 pm

Hi all

I got smitten by this APA business, so I went off and got me two.

But let's start from the beginning, I was very inspiered by the Taiwan coal mine clip on YouTube

and then Tom Yorke came up with the critter in Gn15

boy gotta have one, OK one loco doesn't make a train, so I needed these as well.

Image

Image

OK, now I have one....let's make a kit out of this one, let's cast it in resin.

Image

:shock: ...then there were three

Image

OK, ow we're in business
But where should I put them....now we come to the APA Business :wink:

I have to think of some track plan, but what could be done in this tight place?

Here are some ideas I came up with...so far (me and my crazy mind)

Image

OK...but not good enough I think

But I think the other idea is a tad better, if I can get it to work

Image

The track plan, the whole thing in my version is 360 mm wide at the outskirts of the box, but I know I can get round the bend with at leas two wagons behind the loco in very sharp raidus ... this has got to be tested first (if it doesn't work :? back to the drawing board

Well that's about all, I shouldn't have as I have other projects on hold now, but this Monkey business was far too tempting (in Swedish APA is Monkey) So you guys are to blame for inspiring me

I'm Gnuts I Gnow

And that's the start of W.H.Atsonur Mine a coal mine between a rock and a hard place.

:( not much done this week end.

I only got to play a little and making a sort of mock up and I did the track plan in 1:1, going to cut out some plywood for the base for the layout

Here's some pics of my sort of mock up

OK let's try it next week end.

Hi
I managed to put a bit of paint on two tubs, still a bit further to go on them. (this might be more for the Modeling Matters page).

Going to start on my Taiwan loco, got an 0n30 Bachmann railcar drive to cut to size first.

Those photos really shows what's been done wrongly :oops:
