Yes and no.So with the motors moving to the tender, your challenge will be to make the locomotive as low rolling friction as possible. A new challenge!
About the friction, with tender power, now you will be pushing the loco, so rolling friction (which includes friction from going around curves) will be very important.
That is much appreciated.'m just trying to help
No, i take those things you and everybody else is/are stating or saying in to consideration.but you brush these things aside.
It is just aluminium strip 2mm by 10 mm/ 0.078 inch by 0.393 inch.It is thin metal strips right?
I did follow some lessens at the technical university in Delft about this subject and train rolling stuff in general.I'm not an expert in wheel tread profiles, but I have read a lot about them and have a friend who works on rail head profiles in the real world to lower friction.
For the bigger ones in my garden, they will have there separate track, incl a bit wider in gauge curves: 46 mm instead of 45 mm gauge/ 1,811 inch - 1,771 inchyour tread profile might want some revision
It was meant as sort of humour, light footed and not as a insult, sorry I wrote it wrong.know, you don't have to mention my name and say things like "simple mechanics", or "read and learn" it just starts bad feelings. Just leave me out of it.
