Philphil posted a topic in Track SystemsAlrighty guys, stupid question here: Since Kato doesn't make non-banked curved viaduct track, how hard is it to remove the double track that came attached to the viaduct? Is it just screwed in? And if that's true, would I just be able to unscrew it and glue two single curved pieces of track onto it, assuming the screw holes don't match up? I'd like to change the geometry of the standard Kato viaducts to get 22.5-degree curves instead of the standard 45-degree curves, just for a change. Or is there a better way to do this? I'd try it for myself, but the track hasn't arrived yet.
JanW posted a topic in Layout BuildingDear Japanese train modelling enthusiasts, Happy New Year to you all! I have a question to you. I need to add catenary supports to a single track viaduct made up with the KATO 20-400 viaducts and the 23-017 piers (as shown below). The packaging of these items does not give me any clue on how to fix the catenary supports to these piers. Does any of you know of a clever way of doing it? Kind regards, Jan Photo's are taken from the Sumida;s Crossing site (my first go-to place for such questions).
So I'm pruning my YT subscriptions, and of course I'm still subscribing to RailKingJP's channel, but I thought I'd check out a few of his more recent videos. In this installment, he stands just below a bridge that carries the Tokaido Shinkansen over the Sagami River. Looks risky. location of bridge: https://maps.google.co.jp/maps?hl=ja&ll=35.390926,139.373937&spn=0.003582,0.005381&t=h&z=18&brcurrent=3,0x6019ab4b1a823665:0xd50a2e859d1939a1,1
