Crossing signals by Custom Signals, www.customsignals.com This video shows the full sequence of the very realistic operating railroad crossing on the Southern New England model railroad, a group from Gardner, Mass., as it makes way for a high-priority Norfolk Southern Intermodal train. The train consists of a four-unit lashup of NS diesels with Dash 8-40C 8670 on the point, and a lengthy double-stack intermodal, as it passes over the fully-detailed and fully-operating grade crossing. The double-stack train, like the layout, looks fantastic. The crossing signals feature working gates, lights, and bells. They are also the most realistic-looking signals I’ve seen. This layout also includes operating track signals along the right-of-way. This modular layout is O-scale (2-rail modeling), or 1:48th scale. Recorded at the 2011 Railroad Hobby Show in Springfield, MA. Video Rating: 4 / 5
Question by alfaro.fermin: I went to dallas and i saw a model train set for sale and i wanted to know who makes those?
i wanted to know who makes those huge pre maid train sets, that sit on tables. Please help my little nease really wanted one and he really dierves it.
Answer by mark h lionel trains are pretty popular. its big enough and tough enough. and easier to get
In this video, we highlight a 1960s Lionel model railroad set that will be going up for auction on the GoMotorBids website soon, plus a bunch of new HO scale items from Bachmann that are available. Video Rating: 4 / 5
Question by moniquew93: a model electric train makes one complete pass around a circular track every 15 seconds….?
a model electric train makes one complete pass around a circular track every 15 seconds. the train’s motor has a resistance of 6.0ohm and is connected to a 70.0V source. How much energy will the train use in 12 complete passes around the track?
Answer by kirchwey This question cannot be answered. Model-train motors don’t draw the huge wattage implied by the voltage and resistance, which = V^2/R = 816.67 W. At running speed the motor would generate a back EMF which would substantially reduce the actual voltage across the internal resistance. See the ref.
EDIT: The input data are not necessarily crazy, just incomplete. What’s crazy is the assumption that the given V is applied across the given R continuously; it actually would only happen momentarily at startup.
Question by : China makes the world’s most-advanced Moon exploration spacecrafts and electric bullet trains. What makes ppl?
think China can’t make a gas-powered family car now that China bought Volvo Cars Corporation?
