"ROCHEFORT" 1/32 scale, 500mm gauge

Postby Daniel » Wed Nov 04, 2020 6:10 am

"ROCHEFORT" was dismantled a couple of years ago but I thought the concept and building process may be of interest for some of you.
Specially for those with a small space for a layout and certainly if your scale is smaller than this 1/32.

THE CONCEPT

Inaitially it would be built in three approx. 0,60m X 0,50m sections because would be sent by post to the UK and by then (2016/17) those where the biggest boxes the Dutch post would handdle without asking science-fiction posting costs. But soon, the future owner decided it would be worth to hire a small van and come to Amsterdam and pick it up personally so the three sections became a little bigger and one piece.

This was the track plan scheme:

ImageP1660595-001 by d.caso, on Flickr

A 500mm gauge line serving the remains of an old factory turned into narrow gauge museum which would justify any mix of locos & rolling stock.
The factory building (at the right end) would hide a sector plate able to handle a whole (short) train and move it from thge scenicied area to the passing track at the rear hidding under the landscape.
Through that passing track trains would be able to reach an also hidden turntable at the left end and, again, capable of handling comnplete trains and make them emerge from the 'tunnel' to reac h the scene again.
Not too complex and easy to operate: the sector plate with a special pull/push handle at the layout's front (the sector plate needing only two stops was not an issue) and the turntable operatred through another handle (Meccano worm/gear components) also at the layout's front.
All switches (handmade at request by John Vogelaar) were 16,5mm gauge and 200mm radius and were handoperated through CABOOSE Ind. (US) sprung "Ground Throws".

Because all locos were going to run under RC and sector plate and turntable were handoperated there was not wiring needed at all except for scenic purposes.

A small removable harbor section with some ship would be added.

ImageP1660610-001 by d.caso, on Flickr

As I've mentioned before in my other thread, I like to make plans but like even more modifying them so you will find a lot of changes to the initial idea as construction progresses... and, of course, traces of it:

This was going to be the factory building entrance (to the sector plate):

ImageP1680858 by d.caso, on Flickr

The basic material I use for the buildings is foam in many of the available versions from this type found in 1/1 scale building materials shops:

ImageIMG_0003 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

to all the other types found at hobby shops and among packing materials.

ImageP1680852 by d.caso, on Flickr

ImageP1680858 by d.caso, on Flickr

ImageP1680860 by d.caso, on Flickr

With such a small available space for an 1/32 scene, one must take care of getting the best one can of every square millimeter:

Thank you Mannick.

It feels as a welcome so fuel to start & keep the thread running.

Here, step by step in images, the rocks wall 'method' I used. The hotwire foam cutter is from Proxxon and ideal for such a shaping and slicing job but you can make your own cutter. Doug Scott. a good friend of mine, uses for such tasks a knitting needle from his wife's replacing trhe soldering tip of a simple soldering iron.

This was the new frame for the three sections forming an unity:

ImageP1700545 by d.caso, on Flickr

ImageP1700561 by d.caso, on Flickr

... and this was the construction of the sector plate inside the factory building at one end...

ImageP1700558 by d.caso, on Flickr

and the hidding turntable at the other end:

ImageP1700559 by d.caso, on Flickr

Here the backdrop:

ImageP1700572 by d.caso, on Flickr

The layout was intended to be wedged between three walls of a small room. The plan was to install it in a way that would be possibly to slide it away of thje rear wall so one could reach through the rectangular openings you see in the photo the hidden track if neended

This looks great, seriously impressive. Loving the stonework and the walls, the texture and colour are very well captured. I also very much like the harbour walling with the wooden posts.

I look forward to seeing how it looks with the rails down :P

Thank you Alex for your very kind words.
It is good to know you like it.

The first tracks will be apearing in next message in a few minutes.

B.t.w.: I would love if you and every member posting a message here would include in his/her post a link to his/her work so I can learn too!

Each turntable tracks would be able to take a 50cm long train each. Not much for an average railway but enough for a small museum line.

The two stone paving plates laid under the track were beautiful REDUTEX ones, but I had only those two and later decided to make a plaster stone paving by hand.

Pieces from very different worlds gathers always as a modeller needs a solution:

This would ensure there will be no derrailments on the sector plate:

A remivable roof (just in case...)

and also a removable end:

Tested:not even a brutal shake of the sector plate or the whole layout won't take the rolling stock from track.

Marvellous, you've captured the atmosphere of a small quayside industry with the town rising up the hillside behind it. Replace the roof tiles with granite flags (split stone) or slates and it would be Cornwall or Wales. Just the sort of place I could spend hours peeking up alleyways or flights of steps to who knows where.
Many of us will have links in the footer or signature line. Many of our members are not only new to railway modelling, but also learning their way with computer technology and need a little assistance to get started.
PS I like the "technology" of your turntable and sector plate. As a former IT manager I much prefer mechanical devices in my hobby, to yet more electronics.
Growing old, can't avoid it. Growing up, forget it!
