    (MOC)(WIP) New loco from Spark Industries

    Just swapping to L motors will not increase speed, you must change gearing. L motor has more torque than an M motor, so I would use L motors, paired with higher gearing.....

    Yes, it looks like a Nohab, MY 1100

    You certainly earn your title as Track Modification Expert !

    I also think it is a DB BR 103.

    MOC, WIP, Catenary for rail yards

    Thanks to comments and proposals. These concept structures are only for a rail yard environment. Along the line it is no doubt catenary like ScotNick proposed are right choice. I do not plan to run any "wire" along the tracks, but I do have plans to add some details to simulate the bars and stuff that hold the wire in position. These details will be attached to the horisontal part of the structure. I add a photo taken 45 deg angled, which gives a better picture of what these concepts look like right now.

    MOC, WIP, Catenary for rail yards

    I also think the near one is a better design for a couple of reasons. It is easier to change height, simply add or remove window frames. It is easier to hang things in. And the overall proportions are more in balance. Did anyone notice the whole (near version again) structure is built studs facing downwards? Why? Because rails are very slightly "arched" (happy smile) so when I assembled 2-3pcs studs up gravity makes an event bigger "smile". By flipping the structure upside-down, gravity compensates the arch effect, making it look more stable and optically closer to horisontal.
  7. I made two concepts for rail yard catenary, using roller coaster rails and window frames. This is the primary structure, some more details may be added, to get a more realistic look..... Please let me have some opinions on concepts so far.

    Reviving Classic Town (in one scale)

    Great approach to a scale discussion that interest me highly. I agree 100% to your "conclusion" of reducing vehical height and width !! I try to build 4-5 wide cars, 6 wide trucks and 7-8 wide trains and rolling stock.

    Ball bearings!

    Yes, and for each cut axle I use 2x ball bearings to give it that extra stability, as one in each 3702 and one in each 32017.

    Ball bearings!

    Sorry for bumping an old topic. In my decoupling bogie, I replaced technic axles with ball bearings and old 9v-era steel axle + wheels. It runs really smooth, with very low rolling resistance.

    My Latest Layout

    Impressive indeed !!!
  13. You can indeed make a program that runs two motors simultaneously at opposite direction, no problem. But programs I made so far envolves setting a time for each operation and I guess you want to run motors continuously...so I am not sure what would be the best solution programwise.... (newbie at programing.....)
