Nice progress! That idea for the gantry crane is very clever!

So... not a brewery or distillery... But barrel wagons mmmm.....

I like the idea of incorporating the return rail behind the decor as part of the module. I've been looking back at pictures of MOMI at Chatellerault in 2010 and can't see any other modules doing that! Although Zlin's? module incorporates a high level mine railway above the main circuit.

Can't wait to see the gantry crane in action!

les manœuvres du portique risquent de gêner le trafic .
une solution ?

The maneuvers of the portique risk bothering the traffic.

Inquiet pas Daniel, il n y aura pas de risque.

Quand on est connecté avec les autres modules en exposition les manoeuvres 'derrière' seront interdit. Mais comme j'ai expliqué avant ce module doit utiliser ailleurs en autonomme avec plusieurs fonctions.

Mais au même temps c'est intéressant que tu as dessiné..... Idea

Tu utilise quel logiciel pour les dessins ?

c'est dommage que les manœuvres soient interdites. C'est une animation intéressante

J'ai dit 'interdites' en raison de sécurité. On veut pas les deraillements affraid
Tu as raison, on peut faire les choses intéressantes si on permettre les manoeuvres derrières sous surveillance du pont aiguillage ! Laughing

Je vais réfléchir study

Okay here's my latest plan.



I've shown a posible tie up with Brian's both with a visual public connection and an add-on hidden link. this would as Daniel says allow for some interesting manoeuvers in an out of the public eye.

Brian if want to create a hidden link loop you would need to do the opposite as me in that you will needa L/H R1 point. I will need a R/H point and then I will make a separate board to attach behind. This is a little ambitious but feasible if you're interested.

For the visual link it will have to be on the left of my board, right of yours. I just need to bend my track a little to meet your alignment of 407mm.

I've started to lay track now and make some more modest progress, photos to follow tomorrow.

I will extend the right hand edge of my "loading dock" track to meet the Normand module.

Not keen on the hidden link! If you recall, I'm hinging the back "hidden section" for transport and was going to keep it a really simple straight through track!

Sorry Crying or Very sad

tu peux installer un aiguillage provisoire .
You can install a temporary switch.

No problem, it was a bit ambitious. I will install a stumped point on mine anyway, it may serve a future extension.

Je vais installer un aiguillage quand même sur le mien. Il pourrait servir pour un future prolongation.

Forgive my suggesting this Carl but...

As your building is demountable !

and

You haven't laid your track yet !

Why not move the building forward, out of the "hidden area" ie keep it in line with all the other MOMI modules whereby all the visual activity is to the front of the decor screen? Thereby avoiding all this complication of a hidden passing loop?

The building is removable...It has to be because of the weight.

I have now started to lay track but I shall keep the building located where it is anyway, as that suits me better operationally and maximises the surface area of the board.

This module as explained before will serve as a working diaroma itself.

The loop isn't necessary at all, just an optional extra to route hidden through trains whilst manoeuvers were taking place behind the scene.

We will just make sure that when through trains are passing there are no train or crane movements in the building.

Ah....Je vois que tu veux me construire deux modules. Cool Twisted Evil

C'est toujours intéressant mais pour l'instant j'ai un problème avec le poids du mien et je vais réfléchir.

The simplest solution was to do away with the turntables at the back for the time being.

...and add another at the front but it had to be curved. I've never seen such a thing for real though.

Don't worry, Carl, as we've seen many times before, there's a prototype for everything.Very Happy

Some more progress:



For the moment we have abandoned 'movements' behind the building and there is a straight unbroken track fitted. This could however be easily replaced as a module with a different arrangement of turntables and a point.


Wagon turntable in progress. This will be motorised hence the key hole slot.


The curved wagon turntable. In the lateral position it will connect with track yet to be built across the front of the building to the right and to the left a staggered connection with 'Charente'.


Internal track is Peco code 200 (usually used for 32mm gauge) laid on wooden sleepers.


The gantry crane is about half finished, mostly using bits from the odd spares box.

Carl, Will you be powering your secondary rail system independently of the main MOMI track?

I need to know in terms of the electrics and isolating my loading dock when we connect the two modules together cheers
