A couple of circuits of TT2

Postby Rod Cameron » Tue Jan 15, 2013 1:03 am

Tonight's entertainment included plonking a Lumix TZ30 camera on a bogie well wagon and filming a trip around the outer P4 circuit on TT2. Two circuits in fact, one facing and one pointing backwards.

The whole train (CK's) comprised wholly rigid wagons - no springing or compensation. There was quite a lot of other traffic running at the time too.

Rod the video is interesting in showing the movement of the wagon vs the engine. the movement exactly matchs what we have here in Melbourne on the suburban network! :shock:

Just to clarify, Rod, the first (shorter) train I ran round prior to filming was 100% rigid stock, including the pill box brake van, when the second portion was added, those were either sprung or compensated vehicles, so in the filming, the rear portion of the train from the refridgerated vans back, are rigid wagons.

A 'sprung or compensated' head and a rigid rear, if you pardon the expression... ;)
