OK - better - you must know I have just a small, bad and dirty old black n white pic of a loco that came to work in the twenties of the last century. Our grandpas had to make dikes with.

That's damn good for parts built out of a 'restbox' (scrap box). How many other folks have correctly modelled the diagonal stripe lines behind the sight gauge glass ? - I never have !.

....and a track plan with wagon turntables (between the Offices & Chicken Food place); I love wagon turntables but could never figure out how to power a working 43.5:1 horse.

Well done !.    Regards,     Michael

Hi Thorsten :wave:

BLOODY AWESOME MATE !!

That some great step-by-step !
That some great lil' locy as well !!

You are getting quite a fleet of rolling-stocks.

The trackplan looks pretty darn N I C E also.
Is the top-boat 48' long ? (24" ?)
Just curious...
...what is the overall space ?x? you're planning for ?

:moose::moose::moose::moose::moose:

Si.

I hate R.R.-prodigies BTW...
...they make my glacial-rate look lazy ! ;)

TOP TRAIN TODDY !

Thank you all for the compliments. The inspiring example for the track plan is here in our area. The fisherport Fedderwardersiel is the role model, a little smaller and fishier :) - you smell the outboard friends everywhere. When you re interested, you have to type it in google maps in Germany. The joke is, there is a little loco, but just for to remember the visitors that we had a lot of hard work to do for this landscape - it has my totally respect. Diking was everywhere in the world a very hard business. http://www.bahnbilder.de/bild/deutschland~klein--feld--und-parkbahnen~sonstiges/119002/ein-deichbauzug-in-fedderwardersiel-zu-ausstellungszwecken.html - by the way - I love big horses - they have such a long face! :) - The fisherboat in my plan is 1:25 Gnaupner model called Tön 12.
I´m not shure that the plan work in this dimension - it should be 2,5 meter deep and 2,5 meter wide. The turntables - hm - what you can´t see is the dike. The chickensfoodmakinghouse (in the 1970s there was really one on the top of the dike) I will try to find a pic. the idea is:


hope ??? the painting is good enough to see what I mean.

greetings from the grey in grey weathered coast of Germany.

Hi Thorsten :wave:

Nice sketch of the KFC factory.
I think Mickey Rourke had the right idea about chickens in 'Angel Heart' though ! ;)
Tell that to the Colonel !!

Your trackplan looks very good to me Thorsten.
I think it would probably more or less fit in 2.5x2.5m

Don't listen to me BTW, I'm crap at trackplans ! :f:

But ... on a 2nd drawing, I would 'thin out' the track a little bit.

I can't help thinking that 2 parallel tracks on each left & right side...
...would be plenty for operating & a bit less 'cluttered'.
Possibly operating in a more straightforward way...
...freeing up a little bit more scenery and/or access space as well.

The other way might be to keep the 3 parallel tracks...
...but take out a few of the 'surplus' switches...
...that make the really short spurs, bottom left & right.
In any case, I am interested to see how the plan develops !

Totally great potential for buildings, boats, water & long faced horses ! ;)
Yer got it all !!

:moose:

Si.

Nice idea for the loco steam-dome.
What glue did you use Thorsten ?
That polythene is a devil to stick !

So we'll have another incline working sooner or later..
@Si
Thorsten might try to establish a double-track transit line between the two areas complete with blocking and signalling, and call it an HST (Happy Slow Train)

" call it an HST (Happy Slow Train) "

Hi Helmut :wave:

The Hornby OO model would be a good choice.

The 1:1 version comes complete with...
...hoardes of drunken football supporters...
...and endless track engineering work delays ! :f:

hi Si, I take Ruderer L530. I think its absolutely to much in my plan - I will shape it a lot - the idea is to take less space as possible. Maybe its makable on 1,60 to 1,60 meters - we´ll see. Thanks for the input.

I take a little time, a pen and paper - to have a look from the pace I sit to my left...

Hi Helmut. Erstmal - mein Vater kommt aus Friedberg! Witzig! :)

HST - sound great - jeher with all the signals and full digital computerised engine. The art of slow motion - we need that in Germany sooo much! :) -
For everybody: I told Helmut that my father was born in his hometown.

Football Fans in the Train - a scene we have every weekend - too cool for handicapped persons - and they re singing - loud and dirty - horrible! :)

Hi Thorsten,
Have you seen the Faller "Small wagon turntable" http://www.faller.de//App/WebObjects/XSeMIPS.woa/cms/page/pid.14.17.466/agid.1480.1498/atid.7704/lg.en/ecm.at/Small-wagon-turntable-with-servo-drive.html

Also look up "Car puller" like http://www.carpuller.com/accessories.html and "Capstan shunting" like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBH2I9fvMLM

Looking good from this part of the world, Keep up the good work.

Thorsten,
I like it very much.  Great job.  I am really interested in the sound.  It looks like you used a DelTang receiver.  I did not think sound was capable with DelTang.  Can you share more information on your sound system?

Bob ... Juergen is installing sound on his DelTang critter, by using 'Bluetooth'.

There is some stuff about it in > THE REPLICANT < Thread.

First! Thank you two.@ Bob: 

The sound I use is from the 99 Elias, a German loco in a box. 

You'll find it here: http://www.d-i-e-t-z.de

I also take a sound module from there - and no, I don´t use DelTang 

- I like this system very much - but it is impossible to make automatic, computerised traffic. 

I drive with a selektrix 2 system. 

The power come from the track.



@ Si: Yes the light looks very hard, the reason is the small light I use for pics and movie-making. 

I drive with 12 V and the lights have 14 V so they aren't in trouble, just my eyes :cool: 

- next time I try 16 V lamps, maybe it's more realistic.

Oh - by the way - I had visitors: I think I heard something like "Who let the dog out?"

Hi Thorsten :wave:


I haven't seen the video, but I'm sure it's GREAT ! :bg:


So, no comment from me, on 'hardness' or 'realism'...

...I tend to leave the 'rivet-counting' to others anyway. ;)

( I loose count by 10 anyway )


My 'be careful', was just to say, don't blow 'em up, they look tricky to replace.

Looks like you got 'em running 'low' anyhow, which is good.


I'm a big fan of filament-bulbs.

Tricky to get the same effect from an LED.

Yellow & orange don't really cut it, so that leaves the harsh white ones.

Best way I've found to 'tame' those, is by using a filter.

Some 'chocolate wrappers' work OK, with a bit of experiment.


I have a filter-sample book from 'Lee Lighting' which is a very cool thing to have for such experiments.

Tell 'em you're a big time Hollywood producer, making a $1M movie about trains, they might send you one. ;)


Looks like the critter painting is going well also.

Keep up the great work !

Hi Si,

Now I understand what  you say :bow: 

It is very tricky to change them, and I hope they will be OK for the rest of no 6 life. 

I experimented with LED but I don't like the color - a filter - is a good idea. 

I painted them with window color but the result wasn't like a filament bulb is doing.
Ups - my daughter is hungry - I have to feed 'er :rah:

Curious to see the final shape of this.
