Hi all,

Some work has been done on the station area this weekend.

Cork baseplates have veen positioned and fixed, two of the four tracks in the station have been laid down and the two switches near the exit out of the helix have been fastend to the baseplates.

At the end of the day I performed a small test with the V36 (by far the worst driving loco I haveCursing ). It did well.

I will Steven!

Next weekend I plan to do the other 2 tracks.

Its really great to work with such large radius curves. I plan K2274 als minimum on the visible parts. It must be superb to see the 1:87 scale coaches go through such a curve.Drool Drool Drool

It will be very difficult to immitate the track in concrete shown in the second picture in front of the station building.

Any ideas?

I will probably get in trouble for saying this, but I wonder if an older piece of M track with a solid middle rail would be easier to model around for this purpose? I also saw somewhere someone here "invert" a piece of C track for a road crossing (in response to the Faller car system), whic h would give a solid middle rail to model around. Or you could make a custom 3rd rail on a piece of K track and perhaps model around it? (Link here: http://www.marklinfan.net/car_system.htm)

Marklin just re-introduced the K track crossing (there is a C version of this as well), which has an extension set #7593. I wonder if a couple of these sets could be purchased, then the center rail which already has simulated road could be incorporated here? If done carefully, some sort of plaster or concrete practice such as WS "smooth-it" could be done on either side of the track, and the grey part in the middle of the track piece from the 7593 set(s) could be carfully painted to match if needed.

The rightmost piece of track here:

Rinus,

I have used the 2274 track, although it doesn't form a true circle or half circle I've bend it a bit without noticing it and I used it as an inner circle and this gave me a template to use flexible tracks on the outside.
Just a hint.

your layout looks very promising

Hi Rinus

Just out of interest, is Steinach in Tirol on the line that runs in the valley between Kitzbuhel and Worgl?

We spend a week most summers in the Austrian Tirol, but I don't recognise the name, but the scenery looks familiar!

Thank you John!

Trying exactly to do the same with the 2274 and the flexrail. Did you also used an embankment (right expression?) in the curves? I'm thinking of putting an thing wire underneath the outer side of the track.

According to google maps its between Innsbruck and the Italian Border. Worgl seems to be east of Innsbruck.

Must have been great out there nonetheless.

Solid middle rail? Interesting. I could try to position a tread on the piko's of a2205 flexrail and fill the rest with something.

Thanks for the idea!

Rinus,

board, cork and a thin cardboard or thick papaer, a wire most probably do the trick as well but how would you fasten the wire to the cork/board/track ?

Steinach in Tirol! Its between Gries and Matrei. A plan of the station is somewhere in this topic. Otherwise you'll find it on www.sporenplan.nl.

UserPostedImage

Now regarding wire I was thinking to do this while ballasting the track. I could also use the 5 mm cork plates I bought on mistake on the outside and use the 4 mm ones on the inside to create the same effect.

Do you think it would work?

As long as the shoe can reach the central rail, I don't see why not. Cork would be pretty easy to work with, soft to cut. You could always cover it lightly with some kind of plaster/spackle/whatever to make it have more of a concrete texture.

For the elevation in the curves I used a 4 mm cork bedding on the inside and 5 mm on the outside.

Radius inside is a K2274 and outside with flexrail.

On the picture you see a 1:87 scale ACME coach in the curve. Very smooth Razz.

Thanks Rinus,

I quess I should ask the question if this line folds back and forth like the SBB over the Gothard Pass?

Since the discussion also included your back yard, how many tulips do you have in the yard?
I remember back in the 90s on a mission layover in the spring and driving through Holland and viewing the fields of tulips.

Hi Ian,

Yeah, your right. We live in a forrested area Drool .

With spring entering, nature presents herself at her very best! The sound of all those birds are incredible.

Besides that is saves me a background photo on my layoutLOL .

Hehe no tulips in our garden, I prefer trees. Lots of squirls though!


Great video from Brenner to Innsbruck, just to give you an impression of the line!

If you do not have the patience or time... Steinach am Brenner begins at +/- 13:00 min. The St Joduk curve is before that.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks a lot.
I realy enjoyed the video very much. I noticed the 4 car regional trains and the stations have sidings so the expresses can pass.
Do you know if the fare is less on the regional trains compared to the expresses?

Now I need to find a video of the Gothard Pass.

Your welcome!

Yeah, I think the locomotive is in the Austrian section, while the coaches are in the italian one.

These Italian locomotives sure have some charm too, don't they?

Hi Rinus. I've watched the first half of the video so far. Just great! I rode that rail
route way back when I was still a teen in 1972 only in the other direction. I remember being
in a compartment coach and people were bi-lingual, speaking German to some and Italian to others.
Looking forward to the rest! Cheers,PeterThumpUp Smile

I'm about to close the last gap.

A step by step of todays work:

Cork bedding is positioned and the opening between the helix and the upper module closed! The outer cork bedding is 5 mm high the inner one 4 mm. Cork beddings are from Jehewa, which delivers superbly finished products.

UserPostedImage

UserPostedImage


Soldering each individual rail power suply together. I don't want to have any problems later on after ballasting concerning bad power supply.

UserPostedImage

UserPostedImage


Finally positioning the track to the cork bedding. The hart tot hart distance between tracks is 57 mm. The inner curve is a K track 2274 the outer one flexrail.

And this is what is should be like in the future, the St Jodok bend in Austria!

Tips are welcome!

Hi Rinus,

I have just finished watching your video of the Brenner and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was interesting to see the succession of facing and trailing croossovers for bi-directional running.

I went over the Brenner many years ago though unfortunately by motor coach rather than train and Innsbruck remains one of my favourite cities. With trains, trams, light rail and beautiful scenery it just about has everything. A trip up to Igls through the pine woods, sitting on the back balcony of a tiny tram trailer was a journey to remember. There were also at the time of my visit a couple of nice model shops. I wonder if they are still there?

For anybody interested in that part of the world, I would recommend Ray Deacon's "Innsbruck's Alpine Tramways" and Martin Bairstow's "Railways in the Austrian Tyrol". The latter is probably getting a little bit dated now but it is still of interest.

Yes it is and designed for, in our case, the k-flexi track (900mm).

How to use it:

I've used a method of clamping the clamp between a fixed track and the flexi track and the reason for it is: the track joint between the 2 tracks will stay in its straight form and you will not find having a sudden kick in it.
the flexi track also has one fixed side and one open side, so the open side should always be on the other end because this is the end (if curved) you will cut shorter).
When you've set the radius you than can (I have 3 clamps) put one in the middle and one at the other end.

If you have a track plan underneath your tracks you can than follow exactly the curve according to your marked line.

John

Thanks John! I was curious. I usually stagger my joints anyways for conductivity reasons (with DC track, never used Marklin K) and rely on that combined with a lot of headaches to keep my curve steady. Nice tool! BigGrin

Last month I spent on testing, connection the switches etc...

This will take some time since the inner curve of the largest hellix and my Co Co trains are no friends yet BigGrin

Hi all! Thanks for your positive reactions.

Testing is allways a bit dull. Unfortunatelly I ran into a bit of a problem!

The inner curve of the largest hellix is made out of flexrail 2205 to match the outer curve (radius 4 k 2241). At the joints of two flexrail I noticed that the connection is not very smooth. The curve tends to go over in a straight line for a few inches, which leads to a not very smooth connection with the next rail. Co' Co' locomotives derail on it. To make matters worse, the felxrail is glued in place with hot glue Cursing Cursing Cursing Cursing Cursing

I think there are 2 options:
1. Remove the hotglue and re-position the flexrail and fasten it in the right place with srews.
2. Remove the whole innercurve and rebuilt it with 2231 and 2201 pieces.


Does anyone know which pieces match the 2241 as a innercurve?

I'll show some pics of the problem tonight.

Rinus,

You can purchase rail clamps, especially designed for exactly what you are trying to do or prevent it from. the clamp would secure enough width on either track to keep both of them tied together.

by placing the railclamp between 2 flexitracks stops it from forming a straight track, just make sure you 've got the open end at the right end.
Hot glue is not a problem but you have to leave it until it's fully firm. by not using ballast I would recommend screwing them down.

Another thing I've noticed, your hot glue covers a wide range of sleepers, I used to put drops on both sides at intervals of a curved standard track. (.e.g. 2241).
Although I'm using a hot glue gun, the glue sticks are not the average stick you buy in hardware stores it's a more commercial quality and product.

regards.,

John

Hi John,

Do you got an example or article numper for these clamps? If I think I know what you mean, then I'm almost sure I've used them. I must have aplied them incorrect then. The clams I use are shown somewhere above.

I fixed quit a number of the defects yesterday. I noticed that the glue under the cork bedding was faulty on a number of occaisions. It was pressed outwards entirely at the joints.

Regarding the hotglue. At a start I used too much glue. Way too much. The helix was one of my first projects using it. Now I use just three dots per rail. Razz Razz

Thanks all for the encouragements!Smile Smile

The croc is excellent for testing: powerfull and a lot of axles that can derail. Its a great trouble shooter especially in combination with my dads old rolling stock. Most of it is from the 1950/60's!

I noticed yesterday that the inclination on the helix isn't evenly spread yet. I must make some ajustments.

I also managed to get a switch moving with the use of a servo.Cool Cool Cool I'll most some of that later.

Hi all,

Yesterday I solved most problems with the helix. One secti0n remains troublesome however. I'll replace the flextrack there with 2231 k rail. Unfortunatelly I had to order that item, so that will take some time. Crying

This gave me some time to givre a little thoughts to the signalling. As it is a öbb track it wouldn't be realistic to use DB signals.

As far as I know there are three manufacturers of ÖBB signals:

1. Viessmann has some formsignals link

2. Alpha modell offers era 3 signals Link

3. Krois modell offers era IV-VI signals Link

I've chosen to order some of Krois model. I read they were all metall. Also important is that they are from the present era. Which enables me to look at the prototype in order to get the right signals. Video's on youtube helped me alot t odetermin which signal is used.

UserPostedImage

I want to have the signals installed before balasting.

Rinus

Nice looking signals Rinus!

Sorry to read about the problems you've been having with your track. Joining sections of flex track on curves is always problematic. I would always use sectional fixed curves for helixes and hidden reverse loops.

yup, me too after this. I also think breaking it apart when moving houses, did not do the helix much good either. I'm glad helix # 2 isn't having the same problems. Maybe it would have been better to use c track there.

Can't wait to get these signals! Allthough it will be quite a job to put them in place nicely. The foot of the signal seems quite large an square.

Hi Rinus!
Great progress on teh layout.
I like the way you run your trains at (scale) speed!
Isn't that 39560 Croc the best ever? I do love it!!

For the Krois signals: as far as I understand they are designed so that you can either sink their base in the baseboard (after cutting a corresponding square opening) or simpler in my opinion , glue them, then ballast around.
That will make them look like the real thing with a concrete base.
Keep up with the good job...your project is ambitious, but you are taking your time...and you're right!BigGrin
Cheers

Hi Jacques!

Croc is great. It was the last gift from my grand-pa before he passed away some years ago. It reminds me of his stories about the Gotthard and other Swiss mountains. Allthough I'm concentrating on öbb I keep some of my beloved non-öbb modell of which I have dear memories.

I think I go for the option to sink the signals baseplate. On the video's I saw on youtube, the signals have no concrete footplate, so I can't make a compromise there

Watch the train pass steinach am brenner at 5:30. (ThumpUp Great help isn't it!)


I got a message the signals were shipped today. Cant wait to get home. The order aslo included some lasercut scaled switch engines and km stones. I'm very interested to see how they look. Also there is a LS Model T2s sleeping coach includedRazz Razz Razz Razz Razz

As with the pace. Yess, its going slow. I have to devide my few free time between so many things, and when I get going I don't want to do things I later regret. If something is not 99% OK, I'll rework it untill it is. And above all, I like the slow pace, It's a nice diversion from my sometimes hectic working days. I think that sounds familiar to most of us. I hope to get ready with the rest of our house soon, which will give me some more time.

You mean the St Jodok turn and Brenner station ... Rrrrr Razz Yupp it is great.

I need a video in the other direction (frontview) Brenner-> Innsbruck. They are very usefull for getting the signalling settings. If you spot one on the web, I'm happy to know.

Still waiting on the shipment from Krois modell.

Their e-mail told me it was shipped one week ago. Still no sign of it to arrive however. No track and trace code too. Seems a bit strange.

I've send an e-mail last night to inform them.

I also ordered some Viessmann servo control units and servo's to operate the switches on the main level, together with some replacement marklin K2231's for the helix.

No sign of that shipment either. They are still awaiting to be delivered from the manufacturer. Cursing Cursing Cursing Cursing

I think that the main downside of low-price internetshops is their low inventory.
