Looks very good.

I see you have no saftety measurements on the helix and you tracks just fit on the ramps. Not afraid of falling trains when, or if, a derailment happens.

Good evening gentlemen,

Thanks for you comments.

@@ Lord Macca: I havent been able to test the absorption of noice or the prevention of resonance yet. However I dont expect it to appear. The 4 mm cork will take away a lot of vibrations. Furtermore the wooden segments, which are made quite robust, will do their bit too. Besides that the track is glued and not screwed on the cork. Finally the frame is glued together for the larger part. Glue does not transport vibrations like srews and bolted connections.

Will vibrations get through I've gort the option to place rubber rings between the few bolts left and fit rubber shoes underneath the framework.

If all goes well I hope to be able to do some testing of the segmenst this weekend and we will see.

@@ Piet: there will be some safety measures. Allthough the allignement of the track is good, there can allways be something unforeseen that will cause a derailment (for instance my cat). I'm thinking of making some sort of safety fence after I've placed the catenary in the helix.

Question to all: would you place the ringwire in the hidden yard between the tracks or under the surface?

Regards,

Rinus

Hi Rinus, looks great and there was so much work on that framework, wow! I don't think that you have made an error in AC over DC. I had DC before Marklin AC and would never ever go back! Cheers, PeterSmile


Thanks Peter!

I'm quite sure about that. There is so much more choice in DC (track, rolling stock) at often better prices. Problem is, I've got quite a lot of rolling stock and track, all AC. It would be much too expensive to change.

Regards,

Rinus

Not too much problems in running DC Rolling Stock, may have to regauge the wheels or a drastic thing to do is change wheel setc. but usually niot necessaty.


Sorry. With rolling stock I meant trains and locomotives not carriages. My mistake.

In fact I have quite a lot carriages and coaches from Brawa, ACME and Roco. Simply chance the wheels.

Still I regret the fact that Peco and Roco etc don't offer AC track. Those sleek switches and concrete sleeper track are very very nice.

The overhead system in the helix will be build as follows:

Plan is to take a metal strip, bend it in the right radius, position it with and glue it above the track.

Hi there! Time for an update!

Work has been done on the overhead system in helix # 1. How? Simple: take a alluminum strip, bend it in the right radius, glue it above the track, allign it, fasten it for 24 hours and done! Cheap and simple.

During the drying of the overhead system, I also found time to build the first hidden yard. Since I only have a plan of the lay out in my head and not from a programm, tis involved a little puzzling. I've chosen to build two 13 track yards. Each with a lenght of +/- 350 cm. Without switches this will result in a useable lenght of 250 cm per track. Razz Razz . I spent quite some effort in keeping the tracks alligned nicely, and this is the result. All was alligned with a laser and fastend with hot glue. Its not fully completed, since I have to order some extra track (2200's).

Its difficult to oversee the entire lay-out. But to give you an idea of the dimensions: after completing both helix 1 and 2 and hidden yard 1, I've used all the track of my prevuous lay-out!

Have fun,

Rinus

Yup, up to 230 cm!

I learnt that because of the steep parts of the Brennerbahn and the limitations of the couplers, the train lenghts in real-life aren't that long as one would think.

For instance a RH 1020 (the austrain equivalent of a German Gator or BD 194/E94) could only manage to pull 550 t. A modern Taurus 650 t.

For this reason they use a lot of double or even triple (2 pull, 1 push) combinations to pull 1300 t trains uphill!

Over here two Taurus locs are needed to pull a 7 couch train.

UserPostedImage

And here at least two Rh1044 pull a RoLA train.

Imagine the posibilities on my lay-out Razz Razz !

A short video. It captures the testing of the hidden yard last month.

MOVIE

My ALn 442 and a E40 are to be seen as well as my inspector.

Interesting to hear is the noice produced by the old coffee grinder (5 star marklin engine) and the Roco.

More videos will follow.

Update on the centre rail bit for Peco track.
I am still waiting for that BUT there is a topic or two in past years in the forum.
If you search Peco you should find it.

Got it the Peco Part number is:

PSL 17 - stud contact.
also Erbert??or Ebberert Engineering make a stud contact strip.

If you search topics and use Peco there are some topics about april/may 2010 and also 2009

Update!

Done a lot of testing last month. Apart from the catanary coming down (wrong glue) there were no problems. I'll be doing some installation work next month, before beginning on hidden yard # 2.

And we have a new visitor! The Rh 1012 arrived. What a machine!

I've build them myself as can be seen from post #18 and onwards of this tread.

Our cat is very interested in the trains. Especially those with sound.

I'd love to begin on the upper works of the lay-out, which will feature the station and the main line. However we are planning to move houses, so I'll have to be patient and wait untill then.

Yes and at a cost of € 2,00 per meter for the strip and some glue, much less expensive than the catenary sysems for tunnels sold by most manufacturers like viessman and faller. LOL LOL LOL

So we have finally moved over to our new house!

The old train room measured 3.6x3.6m. The new one is 5x5m! I'll extend the old lay out with 1m in lenght and 0.5m in dept and keep some room left to enable myself to walk around te layout.

I've started to asemble the layout. Some pictures of the chaos...

2nd time we were moving. Glad we decided to. The new place is great, the surroundings very interesting (we now live very near the place where the Market Garden airborne landings took place in WWII) and is saves me two hours of traveling to work a day.

The helix was to large to be moved down the stairway and had to be cut in 4 pieces. The rest went ok. Hope to get things rolling soon!

Rinus,

I was just thinking about you the other day, I haven't seen any pictures or new locos.

I've added 2 new ÖBB locos to my collection: 68 646 ÖBB Rh 1245 and Rh 2043 both with sound.

Your new train room looks just the right size.

Have been very busy doing some large renovations on our new house. Its like a big lay-out: there are allways things to do and money to spend on.

No new loco's for me anymore this year, except for a Rh1044 which is on order. My bank account is in a "financial crisis".

You've got the Rh2043 finally? Great move. Orange one?

Small update;

I've been working on the extention this weekend. The cork bedding arrived and put on the modules. Unfortunately this could not be said of the flex rail 2205 I ordered on ebay a week ago. The selled admitted he forgot to post the package Cursing Cursing Cursing Cursing Cursing .

Hopefully its there next weekend, so I can complete the extention and start working on the top level.

Rinus,

Looks very promising.

Don't you hate this, you buy something, roughly calculate the delivery time and than you find out it hasn't left the sellers address as yet.

Do you have any roof sprinklers installed ?

Hi John,

No, sprinklers won't be installed. Do you have that in your houses in Australia? Its very uncommon here. I will install a smoke detection and C02 detection soon, however. I still have a long list of things to do in our new house Laugh .

I hope to find some time to seriously work on the lay-out though, since I miss the driving with my trains.

Regarding the ebay seller: its the first time this happens to me. Unfortunately I havent received an update from him again since he admitted he had not sent the parcel yet. Makes me wonder. I ordered 14 2205 flexrail and 4 2290 rail, which I need for the extention of mu hidden yard.

I also ordered 20 x 2290 from another seller in germany, which were shipped yesterday.

Today I worked on the station section of the upper level.

I picture to make 'Steinach in Tirol'. Allthough I have 4,60m at my disposal, I have to make sacrifices on scale. Therefore I plan the first switch sections in a curve which will not be visible. This will save space and will allow me (hopefully) to give the rest of the station sufficient space.

Here is a picture of the Steinach in Tirols plan. I'll make it upside down, that is Gries (Gr) to the left and Matrei (M) to the right.

Rinus,
What a progress in such a short time.

One thing, make sure your board is not too thick in case you intend to use under the board turnout mechanism.

Hi John,

What is maximum in your opinion? I'm now using 9 mm.

Bye,
