The new gearing should work like this

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

To do first prototyping I just ordered this chassis

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

Fantastic work here. Can not wait to see this completed. It is talent like this that will ensure that T gauge keeps moving fo
rward and has a future!

I love this. It's so good to see people designing and modelling from scratch in this gauge. I look forward to seeing the finished model presentation.

Brilliant!!

Hi,

it`s time to update my work:
BR01_u_Tender.jpg
BR01_u_Tender.jpg (696.62 KiB) Viewed 1391 times
just assembled to get some fotos. The wheels of the last bogie are not magnetic up to now and so they jumped out of the track.

All parts are printed by Shapeways and they fit perfectly. The tender kernel is made of brass and at the position of each bogie I placed an isolation block.

On top the blocks have two small slots (0,8mm) to put in the springs. On top the springs are soldered with an isolated copper wire and on the bottom they are placed into the bogie. The tender has a weight of about 2,75g

Very good job ! Congratulations.
I think you might have a problem with the lokomotive. I am not sure but it looks that after painting the 3D printed body still some oily spots appeared ... It is not easy to clean those 3D prints very well before painting. Sometimes it happens to my models as well so I try to make my cleaning process better and better.
Is this FUD or FXD material ?

I just received my final (hopefully) chassis from Shapeways.

Hi all,

a minor modification has been done...

Is there a vertical slot to let the wires run through....or will you be routing the wires around the vertical section and down the side of the frame???

For those who don't know what I'm talking about....there are four connecting pads on the decoder pcb that connect to the motor and track. Three have domes of solder on them.

The brass behinde the DCX65 is flat instead of round like the motor. I´ll use very thin enameled copper wire on the right and left side to contact motor and trailer.

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

In the red bordered area the wheels have contact to one track only over the lenght of 18mm.

This has been the big stumbling block for T gauge...….

It doesn't matter how complex or clever we get in the design of motive power, if the 3/4in (or 18mm) dead spot in points cannot be eliminated, then only long wheelbase power units.....let me see, like Japanese DMUs/EMUs.....will be able to pass over the currently available points.

A new design of points were promised a very long time ago......some three or four years if my memory serves me right......but nothing has matererialised.

I'm beginning to wonder if T gauge is not going to expand in popularity as I had hoped it would. The good old "chicken and egg" situation, I'm afraid!!!
