Re: Problem with tender driven flying scotsman

I am having the same problem with my Hornby Mallard. I replaced the valve gear a couple of months ago because one of the drive rods was broken but this issue was occuring before I did the work. It's just as described in an earlier post, the wheels rotate freely by hand but as soon as I turn the powe...

Re: Cholmondeley Park

At work, our engineering technician has been bought a couple of new machines, one of which is a rapid prototyping machine. This is basically a computer printer but instead of printing on paper, you upload a 3D CAD drawing and it builds up layers of plaster powder over a period of time. Between each ...

Re: Computer wire

It depends upon how long the wire is, and how much voltage drop you can tolerate. AWG 24 wire has a resistance of 25.67 Ohms per 1,000 feet, or 25.67mOhms/foot. Let's say you wanted to connect a 3A load to a battery that was 25 feet away using AWG 24 wire. You'll need two wires, one for the +12v, an...

Re: Another Beyer Garratt Thread.

Are there no spares dealers then? Hornby have many dealers of spares. Or is that because Hornby products are more prone to braking and Bachmann are built to last? I'll give them a tinkle on the ol blower and see what they can do, and as for ebay, I have been looking but they are quite expensive, plu...

Re: Another Beyer Garratt Thread.

I have been told that the DS10 motor with a 60:1 gearbox would be suffice. Only thing is that I am worried that the 60:1 will be too slow. I have 2 sets of gears that are that ratio so I will try them and see what I think, if it seems to slow I'll put a lesser ratio in. Any ideas where I can ger Bac...

Re: Another Beyer Garratt Thread.

Thanks for that, It is the LMS one. I have decided to have a bash at making the origional chassis's seens as I have them and there's no harm in seeing how they turn out before I spend gawd knows how much on a pair from another manufacturer. I think that I'll replace the wheels that I was given with ...

Re: Another Beyer Garratt Thread.

Picked the kit up today, It looks like I misunderstood the chap on a couple of things that I previously posted. The kit has not been started at all so it's all down to me, and He said that I should not use a Crab chassis because the valve gear is at the wrong angle and would not be correct for the G...

Another Beyer Garratt Thread.

I have been offered the chance to buy a Beyer Garratt white metal kit produced by N C Keyser Ltd or "K's" as they were better known. The kit has been started but only some work on the supplied chassis's has been done. I have also been told by the seller that replacing the supplied chassis'...
