Lima went bankrupt (or something) a while back but
Hornby are trying to buy them - the sale has been
approved by an Italian court. Things should be
interesting if it happens.

Hospital train identification

Nov 25 2004

Listers,
can you identify this U.S. ARMY Hospital train?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2280164537

They seems to be British passenger cars....

Jens,
A few years ago I did a research on the
COX/AHM/MODEL POWER "veteran" and I
did find a U.S. prototype for it: I am at work at
the moment and I have to
rely on my memory... I did find it very close to
the prototype (sorry, I
do not remember which one!). The only modification
involved the terrible
Bettendorf type trucks... The trucks from the LIMA
K5(E) cannon would have
been a good replacement. Please, note that I have
to rely on my memory!
I did buy some more from AHM (I do not remember if I
also have the Model
Power one in my collection) together with some more
Lima ones for the
trucks, but I never found the time to do the
conversion...
I strongly suggest to the Listers to buy a couple of
thee MODEL POWER one
for their collection, before it will be no longer
available. REMEMBER:
together with the LIMA one it is the only HO scale
r.r. cannon available!!
The only difference I have found between the COX
cannon and the AHM one is
the white lettering on it: the COX does have a
better white lettering while
the AHM one is a bit too light.

Raimondo

Aye,

if only it were so simple- the prototype is the
M1929 rail gun, which is longer, has 4 bogies
instead of 2 IIRC (at any rate a lot more wheels), 2
cranes bigger than the measly one on the Cox
"model", other assorted bits and bobs not on the
little one either, and those big handwheels on the
side are obviously not on the prototype as well.

Unfortunately, references on the original are rather
sparse, and the online part of NARA doesn't help
either. IIRC, there were some decent pictures in
"Steel rails to Victory", but since this is one of
the books lost in a fire in my office/hobbyroom
earlier this year and not yet replaced, I can't tell
for sure.

I wanted to correct the Cox model to a truer
representation of the prototype and started
collecting some date, but it's been on the back
burner ever since, this is so involved I'll save it
for retirement- by that time there may be better
references available as well...

For a model originally destined for playing, the
Lima K5 actually is not bad at all, although it
lacks the generator housing, thereby confining it to
the transportation mode, unless you build the
missing parts- which shouldn't be too difficult.

Cheers,

Jens O.

British Railgun Oddity Described

lru29
 

Some of you may be familar with British Artillery Weapons &
Ammunition 1914-1918 by I V Hogg & L F Thurston, Ian Allen 1972

Towards the back of this book Ian Hogg includes a section on
miscellaneous, unidentified British artillery weapons of WWI that he
was unable to identify or obtain more information on, and in this
section he has a photo of what appears to be a six inch naval gun
mounted on a railroad flatcar, on a mounting that allows it to fire
at very high angles for antiaircraft use. It is shown manned by
Royal Navy sailors in the picture, with ropes attached to the muzzle
of the barrel, which the gun crew pulls on to depress the barrel
from its very high angle of fire.
Today, I received a brand new book , The Guns of the North-East:
Coast Defenses From the Tyne To The Humber by Joe Foster, Pen &
Sword Military Books, 2004, ISBN 1-84415-0887. This book deals with
the coast defenses of this area of Britain from Victorian times to
the Post WWII disbandment of British Coast Artillery in 1956. It has
on p. 33 a beautiful photo of the same type of 6 inch railgun on a
AA high angle mounting as was shown in Hogg's book. The caption
provides alot of information about the gun, it was one of 12
transferred from the Navy to the Army in 1915. The gun was at Port
Clarence on the Tees. Another gun at Saltburn was later sent to the
Western Front. The 6 inch gun was a quickfirer and used a brass
cartridge case. Ropes were attached to a collar on the muzzle so the
guncrew could depress the gun. The conversions were carried out at
Darlington.

For a couple of shots of a Model Power railgun in action go the following link and look at the Freedom Festival events. The gent has done some modification to the gun and made turned brass shells to carry on a flat car. He is the 'developer' of the airport you see in some of the photos.

I must admit I am rather tempted by the Model Rail
railway gun though my intentions are not at all
honourable, I think it might make a useful bit of
wargaming terrain.

It is relatively cheap and apparently some of their
locomotives are a wonderful base for conversions
especially into on30 (O scale narrow gauge on OO
track) so I may pick one up if I am ordering.

Meanwhile I picked up some old O gauge Lima wagons on
eBay and when the load is removed a 1/50th scale Corgi
tank fits nicely so I am very tempted to make a
flatbed out of one. However an armoured train wagon is
just as appealing and I already have some spare
Solido panzer IV turrets bought for the purpose. If I
am clever and neat (for once) I could have all thee
just by making the tops removable.

I did win a locomotive on Ebbay so I am now wondering
how to make it look more continental as I particularly
like the look of the German locomotives, I suspect a
respray to a black top and red running gear would work
wonders, failing that adding some humps and steam
lines and a pair of smoke deflectors (?) seems to be a
good bet as they always look like very busy
locomotives.

Re: [railwayguns, armoured trains and Military Railways] Model Power Railway Guns

Stephen Auslender <auslend@...>
 

Personally, I have moved away from the smaller scales and am working in G gauge now. Scale there can be confusing and frustrating, since the scales used range from 1/35 for the plastic RR gun and armoured train models all the way up to 1/25 scle, where I have the Polish paper card models of armoured trains and RR guns. The same gauge is used for all, G, which is 1 3/4" and that is closest to 1/32 size.
Thus those of us in G gauge have a very liberal attitude towards scale. We use the three foot rule: "If it looks good three feet away it is in scale." This tends to drive the rivet counters a bit crazy, but the rest of us like it.
Its only a hobby, guys.

HO and 00 are the same /gauge/ at 16.5 mm, but use different scales (1:87
and 1:76), so a HO train would run on a 00 layout. Whether it would look
out of place or not varies with taste!

(There is also a 19mm gauge, 1:76 scale "US" 00, but I've been told by
USians that it is now obscure to the point of being obsolete. I've never
seen any here in the UK, where it would serve little purpose because of
EM and P4/S4)

Hello,
Sounds like you are in the UK, or thereabouts.
Here in the USA there is a mail order book merchant who is carrying a number of books on armoured trains and railroad guns. The site is www.HistoricRail.com
The books are the soft cover German Railroad guns in Action, German Armored Trains Volumes 1 and 2, German Armored Trains on the Russian Front, and Armored Trains of the Soviet Union 1917-1945. They have a lot of the models available also, but they would be HO gauge used in the USA, not OO gauge.
I thought I'd mention this because you said you were trying to model military RR and these may be good sources of prototype photos.
Enjoy.

Hello,
Thanks for the feedback.
I am still learning much about computers. I have just built my first one from scratch, and it is quite an adventure!

I too have wondered about this. It seems to be related to the way I save the URLs, because as I go through the ebay listings I make a shortcut to my desk top and then after a few days I get enough to share with the group. When I open the shortcut, and type the short description and then copy the URL to the page, it seems to double. Maybe if I opened an email and copied to it, saving it as a draft untill posting the letter, it would make only one copy? Anyone know ?.

Daniel,

I'm curious why you always have the same URL posted as doubles, e.g.

http://uk.geocities.com/sadakichi09/army/IJ-MR.htm<http://uk.geocities.com/sadakichi09/army/IJ-MR.htm

instead of just

http://uk.geocities.com/sadakichi09/army/IJ-MR.htm??

eBay somehow accepts it, but all others take unnecessary cutting and pasting.

The URL for the Japanese railgun is:

http://uk.geocities.com/sadakichi09/army/IJ-MRG.htm

Cheers,

Jens O.
