    <kuid:177548:10003> ABT Rack Track by Barn700 on the DLS
    Thanks Norm I'll have to look at the rack track by Barn. It doesn't look like the old version he had on his web site at one time. I decided not to use that. I re-tracked the route with some PT 3'ng I'm working on for the EBT. I had to add a pusher on the rear just to get a typical load of empties the EBT hauled with one 2-8-2 on it's 2.6% and when I stalled on the hill - try restarting 2 steam locos in cab mode on a 6% grade - you need both locos operating at near full output to do it. The 42" equipment doesn't look too bad on it and I didn't see any need to stare at the bogeys. With the rack track available I'll be going back to the 42" gauge.

    I've made a couple of especs for Peter's new loco. For the tourist WCWR the Abt 0-4-0's were rebuilt to the original specifications - new boilers and major overhaul to the cylinders and other parts. The main difference from my perspective is they were converted to fuel oil and then to diesel oil for firing the boiler. The working load performance also had to meet those of the original locomotives, i.e. 110 tons under adhesion, 60 tons on the 1:16 rack section and 75 tons on the 1:20 rack section.

    The new especs I made meet the original perfomance spec pulling 60t up the 6% grade in cab mode but the 4 tourist cars don't provide much of a load. So it's a challenge to hold the speed down with the new consist Peter made for it. I didn't even have to resort to anything special on the rack section. With 60t in tow I have to disable wheelslip to simulate the cog traction mode to make it an easier drive. Vern has a short section near the top that's over 7%.

    The Mt Lyell Mining & Railway Co also operated 2 Baldwin 0-6-0's on this route when it was an operating railroad hauling copper from the Queenstown smelters. These where not fitted with the Abt cog drive system and I believe they used one on each end on the 1 in 16 grade rack section where they were limited to 35t in dry weather and less in wet.

    I've asked this question elsewhere and not received a reply , so I expect the answer is in the negative, but has anyone any knowledge of the existence of an asset of railway worker holding a token to pass to the driver on a single line route? If one doesn't exist I am surprised , but then there's a dearth of railway worker models that are suitable for earlier eras , I'm fed up with all theses hi vis modern examples , I'm looking for something from the 1930s, preferably US costume.

    Guys

    All the locos and stock are very much WIP's at the moment, my target has been to create models that could/would run on Vern's route and their drawbar load, weight and power was not a factor I considered. I will quite happily modify the configs if given the desired changes.

    I must confess, I have always treated Trainz as an oversized model railway with simple speed control and no power limit or weight. I only add a weight value because it is required. However I quite understand the desire for greater performance accuracy and will do what I can to go the extra mile if given the requirements, or plug in a modified config.txt.

    A challenge for you, Bob. The diesels have a 4 speed gear box, can you accommodate that? That means that I would to include some form of driver instrumentation and control and honestly, I'm not sure about that. Please assume an automatic gearbox which should be possible to code. Do you have the necessary details?

    I'm told that the LMS Potteries Loop Line payware has a fully operational token system. I have not been willing to spend the money to find out how it works since I'm on a limited income.

    it looks good, but it's about $45 oz which is a lot to see if the token system could be used and since its payware I would not be able to include it in a freeware route anyway. It's one to remember tho and thanks for the heads up.

    What about what was used for the TGR Fingal Branch? Electric token and wooden staffs with Train Orders

    Cheers Tom, unfortunately its the wrong sort of staff, the Uintah used the hoop sort of token . However thanks for drawing my attention to this route, I must investigate the Fingal line, it looks like fun !

    Ok Just a Bit of fun for myself mostly ... a Fell Version of the line Very hard Centre rail as another Rail had to lay next to original straighten section that needed it and shift move to correct position ... found in my backup disks from the old New Zealand Trainz Site , H class loco had to change the engine spec to the NZR F class loco, Rail from same site and have a few other items as well.

    From Wikipedia
    There was 6 of these NZR H Class Fell locos built by Avonside Engine co. in 1875 and Neilson & Co in 1886 that worked the Rimutaka Incline they needed to change the brake shoes that gripped the centre rail after each trip

    Top speed 15mph (24KPH) but never run over 6.4 - 9.7KPH on accending the incline 10MPH (16KPH)
    199, 201-4 2/56 dismantled line 3/56 towed to Silverstream yard and scrapped except 199 that was later donated to town of Featherston after being stored for 3 years at Hutt Workshops , 200 out of service earlier due to boiler problems

    Tokens on the Clearlake Lumber Co. Ry.

    #12 receives the token for the lower track section.


    #12 approaches the top of the lower section and the station master receives the middle lower section token from #3.


    #12 exchanges the lower section token for the middle lower section token


    #12 proceeds to the next section.


    #3 receives the lower section token.


    Thanks again Ray!
