Re: [z_scale] Micro-Trains Track & Steam
- Hi Garth,I'd be interested in seeing the equilalent dimensions compared to 4' 8 1/2" standard gauge prototype dimensions. I'd be interested in rail and tie dimensions, etc.Thanks,Kevin Walker----- Original Message -----Sent: Wednesday, January 31, 2001 6:51 PMSubject: Re: [z_scale] Micro-Trains Track & SteamHi Kevin
The micro trains track is representative of standard gauge track in North American in Z-scale. It is close to North American 3ft 6in gauge track in N-scale, but is a long way from 3ft gauge in N-scale. I can provide the rail details in inches to three decimal places if you or anyone else is interested and what the equivalent scale dimensions they relate to and I can even give the measurements in metric measurements as well.
I would think it possible to swap the three pole motor with the five in the
MTL mogul. The chassis of the modul is from Märklin and as long as the motor
was not modified to work with the new chassis, the swap should be quite easy.

- The last time I purchased a motor for the mogul it was actually a new chassis with the motor in place. This is because the motor worm is pressed onto the shaft on the other side of the main shaft/thrust bearing which is located in the chassis itself and so can not be replaced in the conventional manner. The 0-6-0 is the same way the rest of the steamers are different.
