LDD MOC: ZET Koncar TMK2200
Ashi Valkoinen posted a topic in LEGO Train TechHi all, I've not written to these forums for a while, however I was reading it, now after the new RailBricks Issue 15 came out, including my Stadler FLIRTs I'd like to introduce an another LEGO creation of mine from the last weeks. I spent a long weekend in Zagreb and got inspired by the trams running in the city. they were produced by the croatian Koncar company and are 100% low floor, in 2007 more then 140 of these trams were operating in the capital of Croatia. Additionally, the whole tram network in Zagreb is narrow gauge (1000 mm), which means more fun while designing this tram. I used some solutions from my previous narrow gauge MOC, my Stadler GTW. Pictures, please note, that this tram is still in WIP phase, so slight changes will be made on it: View from the side, only three cars have boogies, two other sections are suspended: Front design, original tram has lot of curves, to make it harder to build from non-curved parts: Reference pictures for the tram: http://www.brickshel...-2200-b-800.jpg http://www.brickshel...k2200-a-600.jpg the gauge is still question for me, the train is 7W, so I could set up "standard" LEGO narrow gauge (when two studs between rail elements, like indiana jones and alien narrow gauge curved tracks), but it fits better to IRL 760 mm tracks than to 1000 mm. To create 1000 mm narrow gauge track I'll need to create tracks for the tram, with 3 studs between rail elements. For driving the tram I plan to use the Power Funtions system, driving the middle section of the train. The distance between the axles is the same what the PF Train Motor has, instead of using gearing and M-motors to drive the tram I'll try to set up with SNOT technique the PF Train Motor above the middle boogie, connecting it with simple 12 tooth bevels, so there will be less energy loss, keeping the speed of the dedicated train motor. Moar pictures later, I hope I will have the money to buy all the things I need for this creation. :) Please leave comments and critics!
