Re: Track-cleaning concept.

Thank you for the additional feedback, gentlemen. Sorry to be slow on this but I took a break from modelling to play trains for a while. (Still am, actually.) Clearly, any track that is not used for a while can get tarnished and interfere with the running of the locos, even a hidden one. So I had to...

Re: RSR new layout.

Many thanks for your kind compliments, chops. I apologise for the ongoing radio silence; the main reason I've not posted anything is that I haven't really done anything. I've allowed my self a break from railway modelling to just play trains. While doing so I've made a number of videos and posted th...

Re: M & J Brewery Sidings

Fanx for the info, Mick. I intend to pave parts of the goods yard and industrial area when their time comes and your method will do the job very nicely.

Cheers,
Artur

Nice one, Mick. Brilliant.

Cheers,

P.S. Can you please tell us how you did that cobble-stoned yard?

Reconfigured crossover.

Not posted anything for a while, mainly because I've not really done anything. One job I've finally stopped putting off is the replacement of the curved turnout leading to the headshunt at the southern end of the station. On the old layout, the headshunt curved around between the southbound and nort...

Re: Track-cleaning concept.

I feel that's also partly down to me for mentioning differentials in the first place.

Sorry,

Re: Track-cleaning concept.

Thank you for your comments, gentlemen. Sorry to be slow getting back to you. I am somewhat surprised that wheel slip is so rare. Could be I was just overloading my locos. I certainly intend to investigate further but I won't be able to judge it properly on my own layout till I have certain models o...

Re: Track-cleaning concept.

I stand corrected, Brian, about the squealing on curves. Of course, the coning of the wheels compensates for the different radii of the inner and outer rails. I've also seen the kind of wear you're referring to on the outer rails of tram lines, which have to get round street corners. I'll take my ch...

Re: Track-cleaning concept.

Yes, Wtd, that's how I see it as well. The matter of traction tyres seems to be somewhat fraught in the UK and USA. On the Continent they are almost de rigueur. I think I'll start a thread on the subject, see what people think.

Cheers,

Re: Track-cleaning concept.

Thank you once again for your feedback, gentlemen. The longest northern sidings are over 5 metres in length. The area where these are installed is however reachable from the side. The Woodland Scenics tool looks interesting. Their product reference is TT4450. However there remains the problem of pre...
