I am building a layout here, I might seem that all I do is build Steam Engines but, their is a modest model railroad being built too.
Here is part one;
http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=37052

This is the current track plan;


For the last two years I have been focused on build two detailed models of 1870's Moguls that are currently hard at work in 1886. The Girls works hard but are well maintained. I am using the wagon top Moguls of the Virginia and Truckee RR as my prototype drawing heavily from Engine number 4 and 13. In build these two engines I have been relying on 3D drawing and printing on a backbone of conventional model making techniques.

Let the fun continue...

Thank you Bernd, I appreciate your comments. On the Sync of the drivers. The truth is; I got them as close as I could. The sync precision varies as it goes through its speed range so I set at the speed I will usually run the engine at. I wish could use the "PFM method".

Thank you Mike. When I'm done testing I'll make her pretty again. And then it will be the #6 turn to be assembled.

Shes a smooth runner, Bob.

Andre, Part of the credit for the engine's performance goes to the cars. All my car are very light. Sheldon over an ounce. I've long known how poor these little engines perform and have planned accordingly. My ruling main line grade is 3.5% and it's in hidden track. In the plan on page one of this thread it runs from the underpass up to Beaver Jct.. All visible trackage (from the operator's pit) is about 2%. I should measure it now that I have the fancy level. Anyway, to compensate for the whippy engines I have all sorts of contingency plans. Like double heading with brass engines or having a power car. But now, honestly a seven car train is a long train on my little layout so I won't need those plans. Though I will double head just for the drama of it. My Americans will mostly be in passenger service were four cars is hoped for. Until recently I feared I would have to employ contingency plans there too but with more and more resin kits being printed I shouldn't have too use them here ether. Yes, it's a good time to in early rail.

Remind me: What decoder did you use?

From what I see, I think I could dial that in (set some CV's) so you'd be quite pleased with its performance.


Andre



dirt. It has a tsunami 2. NO keep alive.
Ask me in a week, but right now I'm so pleased.
(see my edit above about her power)

And she pulls seven flatcars out of the staging track hole (5%). That's the same pulling power as my Bachmann NT Americans. I'm very happy with this.

Enjoy

Thank You Andre, The Wine is authentic too. It looks red in the sunlight and UPS brown indoors. Drives you up the wall.

Thank you Mike, It will look better when everything is back together and the paint repaired.

Bob

Your mogul is a beautiful machine, Bob.
OK Hogger Posted - 04/08/2021 : 11:31:02 PM
Nice update Bob!

Good for you on the Campbell's barn acquisition.

Nice catch on the Genesis 2-8-0! I'm currently not pursuing obtaining motive power as I was, although I do watch for 2-6-0's of interest occasionally.

Your custom Mogul is looking right nice, too. Very good choice of color for the boiler!

If one is careful one can still find deals on
Ebay. I was able to get a Campbell's barn for $30. I'm going to put a false front on it and turn it into a livery for Marshfield. I lost in my attempt to get a Classic Miniature's Works Hardware at a very good price but got out bided. Oh well, maybe next time. I was able to get this at a very good price;

I bought one of these last year and couldn't resist picking this one up. Until I repaint and renumber them I just painted vent hatch on the cab roof red so I can tell them apart and know what number to put in the throttle.

work on the moguls continue as i wire up the decoder carefully trying to avoid any possibility of a short.



And this evening She's running again.


SO FAR the new motor is an improvement The engine runs a lot slower and has more strength.
I Did not use a keep alive this time and haven't notice any difference in performance but the decoder is taking changes. The exhaust Synch is way off so I'm in the house looking up how to better match the sounds to the wheels. After I test this for a long week I will do the cosmetic repairs and hopefully start final assembly of number six.

Bob,

Good to see you back on the Moguls. Ill have to look at Fusion.



thank you Mike. It's good to be back. The new motor is so far working well. They are not drawing excessive current and are not getting hot at all. They have a much lower RPM which means a low top end to the engine's speed. That's not a bad thing.

Bob
