Diesels—I Like 'em!
Charles Wood November For many years, model railroaders engaged in friendly steam equipment. Both factors created difficulties for the debates over the merits of steam versus diesel. Some mod- model railroader interested in contemporary railroading, elers ran all steam, others ran mixed rosters of steam and Fortunately, by diesel models were of equal quality to diesel.
Ironically, model steam locomotives reached a very steam, more diesel models were becoming available, and high level of development in the late s when steam modelers had learned to modify stock items to suit their locomotives were fast disappearing from North American needs, railroads.
N scale has become popular North America from Europe. Many of the current model with apartment dwellers and others who must build lay- railroad scales and gauges originated in England or Ger- outs in small spaces.
It's no longer the smallest of the many.
Triple O was a British and German invention that small —Mdrklin's Z scale now claims that distinction —but flourished briefly in North America in the late s and most of Ted Brandon's hints and tips can be used by con- early s. It provided a starting point for N scale, which temporary N-scalers. Most of the layout and equipment was built when a pair of trucks cost more than a whole car does now, and so original methods were de- veloped of making everything from stock mater- ials obtainable locally.
For instance, the track was built of strap iron, as described ' in the March, , Model Railroader. Cars were built of sheet iron, riveted so that they withstood any kind of service. Originally the road was merely a loop of track with two spring switch passing sidings, with inside third rail to accomodate tinplate locomo- tives.
This was soon changed over to outside third rail, and then after some experiments with overhead trolley an entirely new line was built using overhead single suspension, later changed to catenary. Minimum curves are 10' radius. The six track freight yard has car tracks.
A branch, cutting across the oval through some mountains, was under construction when ser- vice was abandoned. The name of the road came from the "great gulch" where the attic stairs came up. Great Gulch was on one side of the loop and Yahoo Valley on the other. The geography of this un- realistic oval was reconciled by an imaginary countryside shown in the timetable map accom- panying this article.
The board of directors early decided it would be wise to locate the road where there would be no interference from the I. C, and so it was in Mintario. In case you've forgotten your geo- graphy, Mintario is an imaginary country lo- cated on the Canadian border north of Lake Superior.
