The ready to run Baldwin Gas mechanical is now progressing and a couple of photos are included below, still required are resin castings, Louvres and cab interior. Models will be built to order by Bernard Snoodyk of the Model Works Australia. Expressions of interest welcome at this stage,
Example shown is a non-insulated for RCBP operation. These points will also be available as fully insulated for conventional DC operation.
The ties are profiled PCB to the correct size for industrial steel style;
Motors are 3v at 50rpm for slow operation. These can be operated either with a battery or DC power. Motor installation is standard with each point;
The switch stand is decorative insofar that it does not (and cannot) operate the point blades. However the switch stand does operate prototypically with full movement connected to the throw bar.
· The MDF board is not supplied with the points. There is only a small pad under the point motor (shown in a grey colour). The points are supplied in skeleton format with the point fully complete, rails soldered to ties, point motor in position with 2 wire tails for power connection, and switch stand assembled & installed.
Turn out radius / angle is standardised to match 600mm track catalogue standards. However curved or differing turnout angles can be supplied to order. I will also produce points to match the customers’ track plan ready for installation.
Price will be BGP 56.00 per unit complete with motor & switch stand. Standard units (left & right) ex stock.
Note that these will be manufactured by Bernard Snoodyk of the Model Works Australia, postage will additional and calculated from Australia,
Will be added to shop soon,
M00a will be available in the next week or so, very limited stocks and not available to pre order, please check back regularly,
