You mean you don't fit working brakes? Seriously though I found that the setting up of the pin points was more crucial than the weight for free running. Also in long trains a cast wagon at the end tended to pull the light plastic ones off.

Great video Mikkel, thank you.

 

That has also reminded me I need to add some weight to some of my wagons. Its surprising how important it is, not only to engines but also all rolling stock.

Mikkel,

Thanks for providing a smile on a Friday lunchtime... wonderfully illustrated with a sense of suspence and mystery B)

This gives me another excuse to delay the completion of my first wagon even further - need to conduct extended experiments to determine a suitable level of weight to add....

 

Pete - I think you may need to change your specs from 2mm or 7mm to the 4mm ones - it looked like Irish Whiskey to me (speaking as a non-expert)smile.gif

Nice one Mikkel - j

 

However, there is also a clue in the glass (comparing the fluid surface to that of the wagon in front of it) shows your table has a definite 'list'. Could this be designated a 'spirit level' - and is the table also 'Brahms & Lizt'?

PS - the wagon looks even better on the move!

If he had a scotch (jammed in the wheels) perhaps the wagon woudn't roll along the table...

I thought of fixing the table but decided to leave it as it is, for future wagon testing purpose. This is how railway modellers move through the world, isn't it: Everything has a possible alternative use!

There you are waiting, it seems forever, and then 4 (yes Four) pass you by in 22 secs.,.......

 

PS: That Irish Whiskey (Jameson's) seems to have a bit of sediment in it, none of the clarity of a good Scotch.

I'm afraid it's just the same wagon, with a bit of video editing :yes: Nowt more than a bit of fun (well, for the maker at least).

 

Sediment in the whiskey, eh? Well with the cost of modelling materials I have to save money somewhere :lol:
