HO Scale - Narrow HOnZ Gauge Mine Train Video Part 2
 
02:21
Updated improvements with slower speed operation and new features. I wanted to build a narrow gauge mine train in HO scale from scratch, an interesting and fun challenge. The mine train engine is a highly modified N gauge engine chassis, running on Z gauge track, modeled in HO scale. This portion of the mine train layout I call HOnZ. I model in HO scale with the gauge of the primary trains and track on the main layout in HOn3. Building the smallest running mine train while using readily available track, I selected Z gauge flex track and two switches. I narrowed the entire N engine chassis, gears and axles, keeping the wheels the original diameter and building a new cab to accommodate an HO scale engineer figure. The steam engine is a wood burning 0-4-0 resembling a small Porter in design. The engine exterior components are handmade from brass, plastic and lead giving the engine necessary weight for traction to pull and climb the steep grades. I have to admit it was a challenge to ensure the electrical pick-up worked on all four wheels perfectly and the custom handmade micro bushings perfomed to mechanical perfection after narrowing the N scale chassis. Being not one to give up on the project, however if I had to do it all over again I would invest in a Z gauge 0-4-0 steam engine lower running mechanism and scratch build the upper structure alone. The cars are made of brass, plastic and wood, with N gauge wheels on the maintenance car and Z gauge trucks/wheels on the ore car(s) with two more ore cars on the way. I wanted the control process to be a simple one button push to start without any hands on throttle adjustments. It had to be an automatic double reverse loop track plan completely controlled by the electronics for reverse polarity switching, triggered by a sensing circuit I designed that detects the presence of the engine in each loop. The same sensor design is used for the train decelaration and time delay stop at the water tower. Having the mine train traverse narrow cliff hanging passages along the steep mountain grade posed another element of complexity. The engine needed to climb 4 1/2” inches in height within a 1’ foot space….thus a spiral loop was built. The throttle control is a multi-level type speed control I designed in three stages. Level 1 (high) to start the train from a dead stop up the grade, activated by the push button. Level 2 (medium) to maintain enough speed and momentum to climb up the mountain spiral loop. Level 3 (low) maintain through the remaining layout and back down the mountain spiral loop to the starting position. The combination of multi-level throttle power levels and the auto reverse polarity switch sensing circuitry was an interesting challenge in timing and electro-mechanical animation. I also included two sound chip recorders of a steam whistle and bell. Using speakers concealed in enclosed containers with sound directing pipes provides the audio illusion the steam whistle sound emanates from the train as it starts out and proceeds into the tunnels. All fun stuff from an electronic engineer’s perspective. The rest of the layout scenery, track painting, ballast, bridges and structures are forthcoming. [email protected]

Included in this video are shots of my NSWGR N Scale Steam and Diesel Locomotives running on the Sydney N Scale Club's fixed layout, and exhibition layout Moose Jaw Southern, filmed throughout 2017. These locomotives include the steam locos 3801 and 5367, as well as diesel locos 4807, 4898 & 4490. Also featured is my expanding collection of passenger, 4 wheel and bogie NSWGR N scale rolling stock. In addition to this, other locomotives and rolling stock from other members of the club are seen. The locomotives seen in this video are produced by BadgerBits (38's) and Gopher Models (44 & 48 Class). The rolling stock is produced by Aust-N-Rail, Gopher Models, Peter Boorman's Workshop, N-Trains and BadgerBits.

Figure out your N Scale Locomotive speed
 
09:47
I show you how to figure out your locomotive speed and in doing so get to verify that my speedometer I bought is working properly. Turns out that you little engines are likely running WAY faster (in scale mph) than you thought they were. As part of this, you should be able to speed match your engines by using the calculation method outlined. Future videos will show detailed speed matching to create consists (DCC).

http://www.raschstudios.net/ N Scale Model Train Layout "Tide Water Junction" This layout was built to represent a North Eastern Coal hauling road. A coal mine in the mountains ships loads down for export to the harbor. On the other side of the layout a small town depicts a lazy sunday. Over five hundred hand made trees surround a moutain with natural rock cut tunnels. The layout has two routes so two trains can run at the same time. One on a high track and one on a lower track. Engine facilities and mulitple side tracks provide storage for engines and rolling stock. We chose Norfolk & Western to feature in the video. (The layout ships in either DC or DCC mode.) Features: * Dual pack for DC or DCC unit for DCC. * Full night time ligthing inside buildings and upon streets. * Two train capability. * Atlas Code 80 track. * Kitbashed Coal loader facility. * Durable construction can be hung upon wall or turned completely over Dimensions: 72" Long 32" Wide 16" Tall at highest peak

Review on the all new Bachmann Skarloey, which I purchased from Tootally Thomas, I’m sure you will agree it’s a great looking model. There are other narrow gauge engines, Rheneas, Sir Handel, Peter Sam, Duncan, Duke, Smudger, Bertram, Mighty Mac, Proteus, Fearless Freddie, Victor, Luke, Millie and Rusty that are not available in this range yet but who knows? Bachmann’s Description: Introducing Skarloey, Bachmann’s first Narrow Gauge Thomas & Friends™ locomotive. Narrow Gauge Thomas & Friends™ products are HO models that run on N scale track. Running from the main line at Crovan's Gate to the Blue Mountain slate quarry, the Narrow Gauge Skarloey Railway provides important transport for Sodor Mining. As the respected leader of the quarry line, our Skarloey engine is a great start for your Narrow Gauge Railway. (die-cast construction) Performs best on 11.25" radius curves or greater.
