Thanks for the compliments!
What I upload to the internet I generally release for general use. You can do anything you want with it. But wait, the right video will follow!

The Flying Scotsman is now finished! Overall, the locomotive consists of 232 single parts, of which 182 made by myself (210 hours of work). Steam Wheels, Magnet Rings, Spokes Slices and Rivets by TGauge.com (24 single parts) Back Run Wheels & Axes and Tender Wheels & Axes by KK Eishindo (14 single p...

Re: Smoking QTT/T Gauge steam locomotive

The project smoking QTT steam locomotive has failed! If I take a wire with little resistor (5 Ohm), the generator smokes, but the locomotive does not drive, because the motors get hardly any power. If I take a wire with greater resistor (15 Ohm), the locomotive drives, but the generator smokes only ...

Re: Smoking QTT/T Gauge steam locomotive

An improved wire lets hope that in fact there will soon be the first smoking steam locomotive in T Gauge!

Re: Smoking QTT/T Gauge steam locomotive

I also think that it makes sense first to offer a steam locomotive as a series locomotive like Joe's steam locomotive. So kept simple, also regarding the valve gear. A complete valve gear, as I build it on my locomotives, is a lot of work, I'm experiencing that again while building the Flying Scotsm...

Re: Smoking QTT/T Gauge steam locomotive

I do not want to take away your hope, but I'm not so optimistic because I know how difficult alone it is to assemble the locomotives, if all the parts already prefabricated. There are people with watchmaking skills needed and they cost much money. Or it is made by vending machines, but their purchas...

Re: Smoking QTT/T Gauge steam locomotive

So as far as I'm concerned, if I could not even build steam locomotives, I would rather pay 1000 euros for a model from Germany, as 200 euros for such a China crap, which drives already new crappy and is broken after a short time! If I approach the theme of T Gauge here in Germany in model railway s...

Re: Smoking QTT/T Gauge steam locomotive

In this respect, it is certainly not only interesting for Alan to find out who is willing to pay 1000 Euros and more for a steam locomotive in T Gauge.
Please call your price limits!

Re: Smoking QTT/T Gauge steam locomotive

It has been several years since KK Eishindo showed this terrible C62 vehicle for the amusement of the other model railway manufacturers in Nuremberg. Nothing has changed since then! Of those so no steam locomotive is expected! And I'm worried that Alan will also let the steam locomotive project seep...

Re: Smoking QTT/T Gauge steam locomotive

Joe builds like me only for himself! I also called my MALLARD only to show what is meant with a hand sample. I'm not on Facebook, so unfortunately I can not see your link. But I know that Alan showed exactly this A3 work in Birmingham, as shown on the picture in my post earlier. And that is NOT a pr...

Re: Smoking QTT/T Gauge steam locomotive

A few words to the supposed prototypes: If you want to build a model locomotive, you first make a design drawing. Then a hand sample is built to see if the design works at all. Then the items are machined and then the first locomotive is built with this items. That's the prototype. And nobody has it...

Re: Smoking QTT/T Gauge steam locomotive

My locomotives are all electrically connected with this Liquid Silver. I also improved TT points with it. This silver sticks very well and also gets hard, so it lasts a long time and conducts the current very well!
