Lionel 6-28029 Union Pacific BIG BOY 4-8-8-4 Steam Locomotive & Tender with Command Control The Big Boy was loved by the crews that ran her for her ease of firing and great boiler; she was much easier to fire than the challenger and was often run by inexperienced crews during WW2.

ball control while running in soccer?

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Question by Taewon H: ball control while running in soccer?
hi im a soccer player and im pretty fast. however when i run fast sometimes i lose control of the ball and my opponent has a better chance of taking the ball away from me. any tips or training?

Best answer:

Answer by Craig B
To be honest with you, the most important thing when dribbling/running with the ball is that you keep it close to your feet at all times. I’m sure you know about Lionel Messi…..he is a master of this, if you watch him the ball is never more than a couple of inches away from his feet.

One way to improve this is by setting up a series of cones on the ground, and just constantly practice dribbling in and around them keeping the ball under control at all times. Using both feet, and getting used to keeping your eye on the ball to begin with, and then once you grow in confidence it will feel more natural and you can then begin to look up as you are dribbling.

It’s important also to mix up the way you set up the cones. Set up say 10 cones in a straight line……. 1 yard apart and just take it slow. It’s about keeping control of the ball first and the best way to do this is start off slow…….once you have mastered keeping the ball under total control, this will come naturally to you, and whether you are doing it slowly, or at full pace……it wont matter!

Then after that set them up in a zig zag formation etc. etc. just to get you going in different directions and getting used to using both feet.

I hope this is some help to you!!!

Good luck 😀

Question by colts_rock_1: how do you hook lionel pennsylvania flyer train tracks up to the transformer where you control it .?
i lost the directions i have the cord to connect the two but i dont know how

Best answer:

Answer by Dilbert
It should be obvious from the cord. Does it any bare wires, or just connectors? If it just has connectors, they aren’t likely to fit the wrong way, so you just connect them whatever way they fit, and it should work fine. If it has any bare wires, there should be screw terminals or post terminals for them. You just loosen those, wrap the bare end of the wire, and tighten. You’re really not likely to get it wrong, so just try it, how it looks like it ought to go, and see if it works.

Could an induction motor be used for regenerative braking in electric train control?

Question by : Could an induction motor be used for regenerative braking in electric train control?

Best answer:

Answer by johnm
Sounds possible. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hybrid_train. I see it as a real possibility for lighter passenger trains. It might take development of special batteries for the heavier trains.

White Creek Railroad : Running 7 5″ train with remote control and mid train or rear DPU

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Running our 7.5″ trains at the White Creek Railroad at the 2011 fall open meet. Running remote control using the Airwire G scale set up to run our large trains. One nice thing with running remote is that a mid train or rear train DPU can be used. A rear train DPU gives a smooth ride as no slack action if felt. Running a mid train DPU you can take 2 trains and run them as one. This adds lots of fun to this hobby. DPU stands for Distributed Power Unit. Also I got to pull the White Creek Military Train.
