Very impressive. Could you tell us what the gear ratio is that you have used and the weight of the flywheels please.

From memory the gear ratio was around 35 to 1, the flywheels are perhaps a little too heavy at the moment, pair turned out of 30mm dia brass bar, 9.5mm thick. I might try skimming these down a little bit at some point as it does run on a bit too much some times. If I had a third channel on the radio I'd have been tempted to use a micro servo as a brake...! Though the engine will stop reasonably quickly if returned to mid gear.

 

I have dug the layout back out, been a few too many other things going on, but now the dark winter nights have returned I've been building a second brake van and just about to do a bit more scenic work. On the look out for a photographic backscene next, min 22" high, any ideas anyone?! Shall take some more pictures when a bit more to show.
