What's Pushing?

Postby proto87Stores » Tue Jan 01, 2019 4:14 pm

Happy New Year to all.

I just saw the TT2 youtube on the current Cheddar topic.

Since that's an excellent example of good running, I'm very interested to know what the pushing force is being transmitted through?

E.g, rigid buffers, sprung buffers, or couplings. And if the last, what type, assuming they are all the same.


PS. Difficult to get good Cheddar over here in California.

Happy new Year to you too Andy.

IIRC it was a mixture of sprung, compensated and solid suspensions with a mixture of rigid and sprung buffers.

Here's a later film taken in August last year on a test set-up day for our 'Balcombe' and 'Ouse Valley Viaduct' layout. All these wagons again were a mixture of solid, compensated and sprung (Masokits) suspensions. All the wagons were propelled with no buffer heads fitted at all! The crossing was a C9.
