Re: GERMAN Schnellzuglokomotive BR01 steam loco

I placed an order of the new real spoke caps.
Finished with thermo paint aerosol spray and
after a 1 hour burn-in at 300° C the spokes
are looking fantastic!

Re: GERMAN Schnellzuglokomotive BR01 steam loco

Hi all, gluing the rivets into the steam wheels was the second-best solution only and therefore I practiced this now: I adjusted the spring force of the spindle sleeve at my ACIERA 6 to a minimum. The hand gear was replaced by a long rod with a balance weight at one end. Steam_Wheel_Drilling_00.jpg ...

Re: GERMAN Schnellzuglokomotive BR01 steam loco

Hello, to do first driving tests I bulit a new leading bogie out of brass without any current collectors. Using non magnetic bogie wheels with isolated 0,35mm axles. Chassis_leading_bogie.jpg I machined a special screw with a pin at its end for seating the leading bogie and fixing the gear frame. BR...

Re: GERMAN Schnellzuglokomotive BR01 steam loco

Hello, since I´m working on my steam loco BR01 I´m missing bogie wheels with an isolated axle to build up leading bogies without a frame round it. This morning I did an absolutely crazy job: 1) ring magnet from bogie wheel removed 2) small axle pin 0,6mm removed by using my watchmaker lathe 3) thi...

Re: GERMAN Schnellzuglokomotive BR01 steam loco

Hello, I found a solution to produce the driving wheels with sealed rivets driving_wheel1.jpg The photo is showing: 1) I drilled a 0,95mm hole into the driving wheels for my gears with integrated axles 2) The rivets were bended in form of a semicircle with a short rectangular pin 3) The drilled driv...

Re: GERMAN Schnellzuglokomotive BR01 steam loco

Edit: To pass over any point, the distance from the first current collecting leading bogie wheel to the last current collecting trailing bogie wheel has to be longer than this area. At the original steam loco BR01 (1:1) this distance is about 20,3m and scaled down to 1:450 this distance is 45,2mm at...

Hi all, this year draws to a close and that´s the best time to work on my steal loco again. Finishing the tender I have also finised a curent collector. But the tender is too short to pass over a point. Looking at a point, there is an electrical problem zone Weiche_elektrisch_Problemzone.jpg In the...

Re: 4012 Big Boy

Hi Joe,

to get current you are contacting the tracks via your bogie over a lenght of approx. 5mm.

You Big Boy will not pass over a point.

Getting current via bogie and via tender will be great and will work perfect!

BR,

Siegfried
