To optimise speed reduction the best will be using Z=17 for all gears

You are doing a great job on the design of your BR01 steam loco! I like your gear drive using the Z=17 gears. Looking forward to seeing your test results on this set up. Did you purchase all of the gears from the link you provided in an earlier post, and do you have a part number for them?

Joe.

Hi Joe,
I purchased all of the gears from the link I provided in an earlier post.
I do not have partnumbers - select a gear, select the parameters and put it in the shopping basket.

BR,

Siegfried

Awesome work, would love to do the same!
Have you considered the wheel spacing to suit the drive rods in the tgauge shop? I believe its 5.25mm centres.

How do you plan to pick up power? I was considering a permanently wired connection from standard eishindo bogies on the tender.
Love the work, look forward to seeing it progress.

I have to design and to produce my own Valve Gear by chemical etching because the BR01 wheel spacing is about 5,11mm

My plan is to pick up power from the front double bogie and from the rear single bogie or from the tender bogies.

The are some test to do!

I just received my firt chassis from shapeways as a raw brass printout.

> It fits into the BR01 corpus

> the motor is been held in the correct position

> all drill holes and slots have to bee reworked because they are undersized
