How To Use Signals on Model Railways

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Jennifer’s novels are available from In this video we have a brief look at the building and making operational of signal kits. Ratio semaphore kits are covered, including a full guide to what is needed underneath baseboard level to make them work remotely using the supplied Ratio remote control kit. We also take a look at colour aspect signals and a brief look at what is needed to make them work. The colour aspect kits on Bolton Trinity Road are Traintronics heads mounted on a Dapol signal gantry and operated through Hornby Dublo G3 (green) on-on switches. Bolton Trinity Road is a compressed model of the real Bolton Trinity Street in around 1980, though much simplified to fit the space available. Like “Grove street yard” (Model Rail issue 143) before it, it has been built utilising recycled materials as much as possible to keep costs down. Much of its materials are reused from previous scrapped model layouts.

Unique high-speed trains and locomotives on the Russian railways

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Sapsan (Velaro RUS) is Russian for the peregrine falcon, the fastest bird in the falcon family, so it was an appropriate name for this new train, which can reach speeds of up to 250 kmph. Produced with true German precision by Siemens, the Sapsan is fully adapted to the harsh climate of Russia. The Allegro is equipped with safety features designed to work on both the Finnish and Russian railway networks. Its equipment meets the technical requirements in the EU and Russia. The train consists of 7 carriages and has a maximum operating speed of 220 kph. GT1-001 gas turbine locomotive: on 23 January 2009 this locomotive became the first to pull a freight train weighing 15000 tonnes (159 wagons), and on 7 September 2011 it set a new world record by pulling a 16000 tonne train (170 wagons). On 12 October 2009 Russian Railways was awarded a Guinness Book of Records certificate for creating the world’s most powerful long-distance gas turbine locomotive operating on liquefied natural gas. Electric locomotive type 2ES10: the first Russian freight electric locomotive of direct current with the asynchronous driving unit. The locomotive was designed by Uralskiye Locomotivy Ltd. in cooperation with the Siemens (Germany) engineering team. The locomotive performance characteristics have no analogues in Russia. On August 4, 2011, the 2ES10 locomotive in the three-unit mode took the 9000-ton train down the Sverdlosk-Pervouralsk distance of the Sverdlosvsk Railway. It will let the railways

Swiss Railways

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Views of the Standard and Metre gauge railways of Switzerland. Firstly, some frieght trains near Gotthard, famous for its pass, and very, very long tunnel. Secondly, a look at the lake and the Paddle Steamer ‘Lotschberg’, as well as some metre gauge traffic, at Brienz. Brienz, as many will know, is the bottom terminus of the Brienz and Rothorn Steam Rack Railway. A possible thing to come? Thirdly, some more metre gauge traffic at Realp, at the foot of the Furka pass. The station only serves a population of around 160, but is used for car transport trains, to carry travellers along the rail route, rather than negotiating the Furka pass itself, like we did. (In low thick cloud may I add!)

A nice facet of BRs train markings is that only "locomotives" carry the lion and wheel crest. So on this 4 car EMU only the two motor cars are so adorned.
