  Sugar cane railways in Egypt oo9
Posted by: franckcombe - 06-19-2018, 03:01 AM - Forum: Layouts - Replies (6)

Hello,

My Sidi Fontana layout is nearly finished so it's time for me to create a new one.

I want to reproduce a Sugar cane railways in Egypt at oo9 scale. It's a real 2 feet gauge built by french and english in 19 th century and still used today. The train is used for 50 %  of the cane sugar in Egypt.



Two links on youtube

.

I will reproduce a part of a sugar cane refinery near luxor with his harbour and crane. The locomotives and the rolling stock don't exist and my friend Jean-Pierre Duval will do this with 3d printings.


This is the  mock up

  Bachmann 70 ton switcher
Posted by: faraway - 06-12-2018, 10:47 AM - Forum: HO Modeling - Replies (14)

I modified a Bachmann HO GE 70 ton switcher.
- Some black and brown wash
- Kadee couplers
- Removed footboards
- Installed prewired SMD 0402 LEDs with 5k6 resistors in the shell 
- Replaced Bachmann PCB with GE Tsunami 2
- Installed sugar cube speaker in the front of the shell
- Added sheets of lead in the top of the hood

It is still a noisy engine but the lead in the shell reduces the amplification of the vibrations caused by the drive.

I had a "nice" surprise with the sound. A first test run with the Tsunami and the sugar cube installed made the usual factory set loud engine noise. The bell was ok too but the horn damaged the tiny speaker within seconds. It sounds awful after the test drive and I had to replace the sugar cube and delayed the next test run until the volume of the sound had been adjusted. It is always wise to have spare parts in the drawer Tongue
