This looks like a heavy travelled main line.... Double track and electrified... Having a derailed car sitting on the main ties up one of the main tracks.(maybe both if the car is just clear of the other track. Not good for business.... Yes I know it's possible to re-rail a car with blocks, re-railers hydraulic jacks whatever but you have to get them to the site first . You can't always drive to the location., also needed is a engine to move the car over the re-railers. so that means getting...

Uhh... NO. You can probably argue the "Stronger than magnet wire", but the " and being stranded it carries electricity much better " is indefensible. At low frequencies or DC, a solid wire of the same core diameter will be better than stranded for carrying current. As frequency rises, a point will come where stranded wire will be better; it will be able to take a higher current than a solid core of the same diameter. However, the so-called "skin effect" is only for insulated strands, plain...

Warning, just did a dumb thing with my 158 prewar motor.

RonH ·
Took the body, chassis, wheel and idler gear off of my prewar 158 motor. So I thought I would Fire the motor up (note the word fire). Hooked up some test leads to the motor then applied voltage to the motor, great it was running nice. With this I had the bright idea to apply a spray contact cleaner when the engine is running to help clean things out. Bad Idea as soon as I stopped spraying the contact cleaner the motor/cleaner burst into flames (sparking brushes). I was able to blow it out...

Whole lotta effort for a single-car derailment (Video)(Russia)

RailRide ·
(19-minutes) Video starts with a passing freight train. One of the tankers appears to be in a bit of distress (it has been highlighted in the video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVXW_rLC8R8 An entire wreck train is dispatched, and apparently all that was done was to assemble some blocking under the errant truck and pull it back onto the railheads with another diesel. Unfortunately there may be a bit of additional info in the subtitles, but Google can't translate those (not that it does a...

Mark, they don't get much, if any on the freight cars. However, they do suffer extensive graffiti on passenger equipment. Especially on their version of the Metro, that run in tunnels. There are gangs who hide out at night waiting for the opportunity to attack a train. Here's but one example I found:

Why the 22 ton axle load? Light rail, weak bridges..or ? Amazing how much information did not formerly come out of Russia...the model car sites in 1/43rd are saturated with models of cars we never heard of, leaving me thinking there were few or none for citizens. This rerailing does seem to set a new standard for featherbedding that would make U.S. railroad management cringe.

Thanks, David. . Think they need a Metro Train tagger gulag! Maybe we could send our taggers there, too! (David, took a peak at your profile. Noted your state of residence - confusion - humorous!) Oh, wait. You're involved with boneless chicken farming - - - more funny!

Makes me wonder what could have been inside that car, especially since the Russian Army was walking around as well. My Russian is pretty rusty, so I couldn't get enough from the written portions of the video to get any further info. Maybe the cargo was the reason it took so long to get it back on the rails?

That's not unusual in other countries. The railways are built to lighter standards than mainline USA, often with a higher proportion of passenger traffic rather than heavy freight. The Australian standard gauge national network is rated for similar axle loadings (that does not include their isolated heavy-haul iron ore railroads).

Strange thing about the Russian & railroads in other ex-Soviet Union “Commonwealth of Independent States” countries is that while their axle load might be less than those in North America, their loading gauge is wider than the AAR – Plate F, used here in the US. CIS countries also use the Russian Broad Gauge (5’) as opposed to the Standard track gauge (4’8.5”). These are just my opinion, Thanks, Naveen Rajan

I checked the page with Google and hit the 'translate' button. As always there's something lost, but there are some pretty witty Russians posting about the same thing; like "Why are there 100,500 people of which 10 people work?", and a few other ......ahem.....spicier comments.

50 employees and a couple of dogs shouting instructions from the sidelines! Possibly the snappiest looking wreck train I have ever seen + an extremely heavy duty crane, mounted on eight wheel trucks! Noted no graffiti on the freight cars - Russia must have a special gulag for taggers! Judging from the concrete ties, heavy rail, neatly ballasted right of way, modern condition of their roller-bearing rolling stock, Russians have a high regard for their railroad. Impressive.

Unbelievable. This is a 20-minute job for 3-4 guys, tops. Did it many times on the Ohio Central. There must have been 50 people there, plus a wreck train! For one derailed truck? Wow.

Thanks for posting.... Working the brakeman's spare board I've worked at a few wrecks site with CN's 250 ton hook.. Maybe 3 tops. As for the Russian video.. No shortage of man power . It must have been stationed close by . Although a crew might be able to re-rail the car around a yard with a supply of blocks it would be difficult to do out on the road, best left to the experts. Besides the re-railers that hang on the engine are really heavy. It takes two crew members to handle them. Now days...

Looking for AHM couplers

Sorry, I know this is an O-ga forum, but I'm in need of some AHM Rivarossi ho hook-horn couplers for their GG1's. I purchased the "Black Jack" and a few more of the AHM Rivarossi GG1's. These engines are in need of the hook-horn couplers and the small plastic pins that hold them in place. I tried search the net and no luck, so I figured I'd try here. These hook-horn couplers and pins are different then the usual ones. I need (purchase) atleast 3 couplers and two pins, I'd purchase more if...
