Auscision Models have shown some pictures of the final samples of their EL class diesel locomotive. I saw a sample of this at the Melbourne show and they were very impressive.

Here are some pictures from their site.







This is a picture of the mechanism



And here are some CAD shots

Very nice. The light blue hoses on the front remind me of Davy Jones from Pirates of the Carribean.

Something wrong with the cogs...

The worm gear from the motor shaft drives a cog with about 20 teeth. That then drives two cogs, one with 13 teeth and another with 16 teeth. They in turn drive one axle each from a 14 tooth cog. Surely one axle will turn at a different rate to the other?

Now that you say it, I think you're right. Unless they actually intend to fit the centre axle with a different gear wheel, there's going to be a problem.

You've got an eye for detail Doug.

It might be worth seeing one of these run before buying one then!
