    Good evening, I hope all dogs and horses are doing well. Nick,what do you mean by binding, as in my picture certainly not. Okay, little fun has to be. I am an old miner and try it with turnbuckles, steel anchors and a cross beam, the turnbuckles you see in the second picture, made of 2mm brass tube, this is a nerve job... Let's see how all this is soldered. Regards Jan

    Hello Sean and Nick, I also think that the dog looks younger, normally he has a lot of hair, I was a bit irritated. Nick, the charge is only half finished, the picture does not show that, now I'll take a break ... Thank you for your answers. Regards Jan

    Sean, thank you, we'll see what comes... Today I did something different, a little break from the woodwork. I don't like the plastic wheels anymore, and they seem too big for my eyes. I shortened the Truckbolster by 4 mm. The new axes are from AMS. When the glue is dry, everything is assembled. The same job as the first . Greets to Bug Thank you Jan

    Hi Nick, Gauge 1 is very expensive, I tried to keep costs low, everything I have built is made of wood, signals, buildings, turntables, lamps etc. Not everything was good, but I was satisfied. If you recreate things in a simplified way and leave out the details, you have already won. If you want to build all the details, you've lost. That's a matter of the head..:) Make things easy, and you'll have fun. Regards Jan
  7. This machine has very nice wheels, low wheel flanges and fine coupling rods, I have never seen before, thank you. Regards Jan

    Hello Nick, that's exactly how it's meant to be, a wooden order with beams and boards, I don't always find the right words. That will be high, about 30 boards. With the beams I built my tracks and switches, these are the remains, this is oak. Thank you Jan
  9. Hi Chuck, very well explained. The switch motors are less susceptible to interference and can dcc with a decoder, I use feather motors in analog with 12 volts DC. Another method is operation with servo motors. For the frogs you can also take frog juicer, unfortunately there are only for small amperes. Regards Jan

    Thank you Chuck and Nick for your warm words, this was our last cat, we had 6 in 35 years. These were all Turkish Angora, the name is Wada.Today I cut, sanded and glued a few ice sticks....a life's work, there are still 10 on it, all together 400 pieces....:) Regards Jan Forgot, sorry, Nick I only have this car with link and pin.
  11. Great, the machine has to work properly, there is no automatic control for speed, as in real life. My first DC locomotives also ran like this, in a curve they slowed down. Well done Nick ! Regards Jan

    Hi Nick, no problem, on Thursday our cat died, 21 years old, we are all sad. I translated some of the text, the skeletons also transported boards and beams. I still found beams made of oak, had built track with them. I think they can carry the stacks of boards. Provisionally cut here, think that's possible. The felled wood was brought by forest railway to the sawmill of Pino Grande and processed into boards and beams. These were then led by the forest railway to the cableway, where the "log cars" were decoupled and loaded onto the cable car. On the other side of the valley, the wagons were taken over again by the forest railway and led on to Camino, where a large sawmill and planing plant stood. In 1949, the Cableway suffered another fire and was no longer built. The timber transports were moved to the road, 2 years later the forest railway was also abandoned. I sawed the oak beams to 8.8 inches. Between the bars come spacers for the right width. Regards Jan

    I would like to recreate these chopsticks as a board load. Unfortunately, they are too short, there must be something underneath, maybe a few bars next to each other or.... no idea yet. Regards Jan
  14. Beautiful, what a technique Thank you Nick. Regards Jan
  15. Hello Nick, very nice machine, I have never seen with livesteam. Thank you. Regards Jan
