OK, for how long has the "Video of the week" button been there?  I've just watched a transformer being carted up to Tanygrisiau power station in 1962.  Sort of appropropriate as I'm working on a Festiniog-Railway based layout!

Only 8 years, -- see:

The current week has lasted a couple of years, it's high time I changed it!

:)

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Martin,

Here is a suggestion for Video of the Week - St. Pancras Junction Relaying

Some great manual labour taking the strain, you have to love the drilling machines being used to make holes in the rail for track circuit wiring - not a power tool in sight :)

You had better send a message to Paul or he will miss it.....

Rob

Thanks Rob.

That one has been the Video of the Week before. I removed it because watching it made me feel tired. :)

I have put it back for a while.

After that perhaps this one again: https://youtu.be/CSfa90avBzI

Health & Safety inspectors might like this one: https://youtu.be/9_wdRkxT7GI

Then chill out with this: https://youtu.be/mWUIbqY1uLI

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the links, yes seen the bridge one before, will watch it again tonight while eating my steak and chips.

The saw mill one makes me cringe a bit. Guess machine guards would have gotten in the way - the crunky guy with the long hair looks like an accident waiting to happen. I closed my eyes when the dog wandered into shot.... :(

Rob

Hi Rob,

I see this one has reappeared on YouTube, it went missing for a while:




I will put it back as Video of the Week in due course.

Hi Martin,
Thanks for reminding me of that video, some excellent footage there. It took them a good while to get the electric trains on the East Coast route - still it allowed the Deltics a good long run before the HSTs ran up until the wires were finally up.

Bearing in mind the Beeching report of a few years later the mood seemed very positive towards railways when this film was made - I guess the main lines survived mainly intact. I wnt to college in the 70's next to one of the depots that maintained the Woodhead electrics. At least the route is a nice walk now :?

Rob

I'd like to (selfishly) propose my evolving developments in model tram track as a candidate for "video of the week".



It does rather show what can be actually reliably achieved with RTR wheels on P4 specification flangeways.

Hi Andy,
Thanks for the video. What dimensions are you using for track and wheels in terms of flange profile, back-to-back, frog/guard rail gap and gauge ?

The vehicles are standard RTR NMRA HO.  But they must have free to turn bogies and be constructed so as to be sitting flat and square on a flat surface.  The rail is slotted to P4 flangeway width and min flangeway depth. Off the top of my head that is 0.026" width and 0.015" depth.

The gauge is set by the slots in the roadbed, rather than by the rail heads.

I was able to do some quick checking of my original drawings and FWIW the metric gauge equivalent of track gauge is 15.59 mm. But the tolerances on the flange way position are set from the nominal flange way centre rather than the outer edge of the flange way. 

If you want to set my dimensions into a table for Templot, then we should probably put those into a different place on the forum.

Another week, another video (how long is that going to last?).

It's another one about track making and junction renewal which has been on there before, but well worth watching again despite the poor image quality at the start. It improves after a few minutes.

I have also created an archive topic for any you missed:

cheers,
