Corgi HC 1018 1:50 scale diecast model of the M4A3 Sherman Tank

pro hobby ·
Corgi HC 1018 1:50 scale diecast model of the M4A3 Sherman Tank This is a well detailed 1:50 scale version of the M4A3 Sherman tank. This model could be used on an O scale historical museum diorama or as a flatcar load. This Corgi model was issued as part of the "History Channel" diecast model series. The prototype was the M4 Sherman, (officially Medium Tank). The M4 was the most numerous battle tank used by the US and some of the other western Allies in World War II.

Ertl 9513 1930 Diamond T Tank Truck in 1:34 scale

Ertl 9513 1930 Diamond T Tank Truck in 1:34 scale This interesting diecast model is close to G scale and could be added to a "garden layout". Historically it is a model of a typical fuel tanker of 1930. The model has an overall length of 8 inches. The model is labelled for True Value. Note: True Value Hardware did not exist in 1930 and would likely not operate a fuel tank truck. This is a very attractive model but not realistic. The plan is to disassemble the model and create a dump truck...

Maybe something like this: Yes, I will concede that this isn't the way that tanks would have been shipped on flatcars across the U.S., but I prefer to have my tanks (and other WW II vehicles) battle-ready! Jim

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!

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...

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

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.

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...

Garrett's 2016 Christmas village and train layout

Garrett76 ·
It's a start. Going with a traditional oval layout unlike previous years "behind-the-tree" format. It's 4x8 modular benchwork on a folding table. Have to keep it up off the floor lest the dog reenact a scene from Godzilla. I hope to incorporate several button activated operating accessories to make the layout interactive for family and guests. More to come.

Hey looks like a good start to me. Two houses ago when I didn't have much space, I set up my 4x8 on a folding table too. Plywood on top of that and I had a blast running my trains. It's all in the imagination! Would enjoy seeing more pics as you progress.

Here's a pic of the underside of the benchwork. I hope to reuse this for the next few years. Any further expansions would be build with similar modular 4x4 panels. The rectangular cutouts at the back are to allow clearance for some curtains with the main body of the layout staged close to a wall

I think the cutouts are 8 x 18. The track plan is more of a guideline than a rule. There will be some changes in final execution. I'm not bumping out into the rear section due to some scenery elements
