Liverpool and Manchester c1828 in 1:350

Post by martink »

Continuing to broaden my horizons in terms of prototype and scale... another T-sized train, even if the prototype's small size means the scale has to be cranked up to 1:350. This is a setting I have had in mind for a long while, and may eventually turn into a full layout.

Robert Stepheson's Rocket, I see!

Very nice.

Are you going to recreate the Rainhill trials, per chance?

I hadn't considered that option - I was thinking more of normal revenue operations a year or so later, adding a second type of loco and some mineral waggons/chaldrons. Possibly even an older horse-drawn/gravity-powered mineral train with dandy cart as a contrast.

That's about it for this round of model-making experiments. I have been trying out a number of ideas for next year's layout, and this little video bundles them together. This intentionally pushes the size limits of what the linear motor system can do. I was fairly sure it could cope with these extremes, but now I know for sure.
