Re: Progress on new street track

I've been busy on other work, but I can report some progress on the build of the Grand Union and Triangle Junction. http://85a.co.uk/forum/gallery/726/726_201428_570000000.jpg All the gaps in the rails are for 2-rail working. The wiring under the 90 degree centre crossing was very complex, so I manu...

Re: H0pur, H0fine und RP25

http://www.proto87.com/media/Wheels%20UK%20Passenger%20-%20test%20.jpg I have made some progress in making Proto:87 and P4 Wheels. Here is a prototype that I made for a P4 UK passenger coach as a test. It will still take several months before I will be able to manufacture P:87 wheels in quantity. B...

Re: H0pur, H0fine und RP25

Hi Manfred,

At the Proto87 Stores, I'm attempting to design a new range of lower cost wheels for both proto-87 and model trams. It will take a while, but I'm hoping to be able to finish by the end of this Summer.

Re: Progress on new street track

Hi Olli, I'm afraid I can't promise much coming soon for a HOm Version of a Grand Union. First I need to know what double track spacing is used for HOm. Model and Protoype. And then I almost certainly have to design a complete new set of rail frogs because most of the frog angles will change. I do w...

Re: Progress on new street track

http://www.proto87.com/media/GU%20side%201-800.jpg The street surface bases for the HO Grand Union track configuration are now complete. Over the couple of weeks, I'll be adding the rails and then performing running tests. Despite the complicated layout, the bases can be wired for 2-rail working. T...

Re: Progress on new street track

Here is a picture of one of the adapters to join "city streetz" to legacy Hartel track.

This changes the track to the Hartel double track spacing and normal HO flangeways. So it works with existing layout laid track.

Re: Progress on new street track

Per, I have to draw the stone surface pattern for each separate track section, so it will be another month or so before I can complete those. But it should be available at a sightly higher cost soon after that. Ditto for planning diagrams. In the meantime you can use the 8" and 10" radii and 2" spac...

Re: Progress on new street track

Hi M.V.

The etchings don't reach the full distance between the rails. There is an small insulation gap. All my systems use 2-rail DCC. So I need to keep the rails insulated. But it does make wiring a grand union very complicated.

Re: Progress on new street track

Parts for the "Street Furniture" have arrived so the Street Switches can now be fully detailed. http://www.proto87.com/media/furniture%20close-800%201.jpg This is the switch portion of an 8" ( nom. 200 mm) radius turnout laid in a model concrete street section. I also I have made both single and dou...

Re: Progress on new street track

Hello M.V. Werner used the Electric Avenue Rail on his layout for both HO and HOm. The plain rails bends enough to adapt to 12 mm gauge. So if I made City Streetz bases for 12 mm gauge they should work easily. The only issue is with the pre-set radius of the moving points. IIRC, Werner and I discuss...
