Finally a update

Posted by nick_bastable , 26 January 2014 · 1,007 views

Slow progress but at last the track is all down thanks to Martins and Valentins efforts. To speed things up from glacial to tree ring time Ive spent the weekend getting the points servos working First point works quiet nicely although the 2nd has already had some severe rebuilding and requires a little more

However at least I can play test the layout

Hughes tram on test which managed the point without stalling although may be fitted with a stayalive

Hopefully I will have point no 2 working ready for our next meeting on the 13th when the group can play test the layout

  • Craftsmanship/Clever x 2





It nice to see you posting once again Nick and its good to see progress too.

 

That little Wantage tramway engine looks brilliant, what does it run like?

First  mentioned on this thread

It runs fairly well given the limited wheel base  and my 1960's method of turning the wheels ( dont ask)   I think the micro capacitors  obtained from 1001-digital.de following Mr Cliffe's article in the 2mm magazine will improve it further as it is a bit fast as too slow and it will stall on dirty track

I don't think that you've done the group

The turnouts look good even if a little fettling was needed. And Julia is right about the Tram engine.
