Wow there is always an app these days. I do have the woodwork app that does each of the checks on their own, but this is a revaluation! Must must have the app.
I've run it around the worst affected area and discovered some nasty lateral variations which I have repacked and levelled. They didn't look that bad to the Mk1 eyeball but one of which, over the course of half a metre had a 5 degree change left to right on a rising gradient. Then the sun came out and I couldn't read the screen so that's it until the clouds return. Obviously a bit of a design flaw. Perhaps a cocktail umbrella? Only another 200ft to check...
Thank you everyone for the help, suggestions and pointing me in the right direction.
That's exactly what I meant Jon. I wouldn't dare use one on my line, it'd be too worrying
Yeah, Some LGB ones are made on one side so when the screw that holds the side frame is done up tight, it will still twist because of a rounded seat there. Some AristoCraft ones are sprung where the spreader joins the side frames. I've seen some that have been glued so they don't twist. Sloppy axle holes and slightly loose side frames will let the axles move so all wheels remain on the rail. Just something to look out for because some bogies can be problematic on undulating track and some others will do it just fine.When I built my last Railcar I made the made one bogie so that it could twist forward and aft, the other port and starboard. This tends to account for many ills and I think that LGB Bogies and the 4 wheel vehicle ones may allow for this as well otherwise they would all flop to one side.
Woodwork app? I could havedone with one of those last week, it could have cut that bit of wood square for meWow there is always an app these days. I do have the woodwork app that does each of the checks on their own, but this is a revaluation! Must must have the app.
If only we could train them to clean tracks, lay down ballast (and make a cup of tea) - unfortunately when they get to the age when they are capable they just don't want to knowWelcome to the Forum!
Look's like your railway is 'softening' with the planting? - Long-ago, I also had a Daughter who was a 'climber!'.. First discovered when 'something' tugged at my trouser bottom's, when up the ladder.. Hannah, pink, fluffy romper-suit, and dummy in her mouth! - At that time, she could climb-up, but not back down which made getting down the ladder 'interesting'!
Not so sure with Hannah..If only we could train them to clean tracks, lay down ballast (and make a cup of tea) - unfortunately when they get to the age when they are capable they just don't want to know
