5-inch gauge EF210, other types

Recommended Posts

I was just looking for info to answer Vadim's thread in another forum and I found this:

 

http://www2s.biglobe.ne.jp/~hidepon/5inch/ef210.html

 

Apologies if this has been posted before.  I'm more of a railfan than a modeler, I don't know too much about this, but based on what the page says, this is 5-inch gauge, about 1/8.4 scale.  Its length is 2160mm, and it weight 95 kilograms.  It uses 24VDC power.

 

Even more: http://www2s.biglobe.ne.jp/~hidepon/5inch/5inch.html .

Wow! Where can I get one of those?! Oh wait - it'd half fill my apartment, and the postage to Australia would consume my MR budget for the whole year.

It would be cool if they laid two parallel tracks for some real train-racing!

live steam British Rail 9F. This thing hauls ass, and the line has signalling. Amazing.

I my god that speed!

 

You don't often see these large scale models on 'viaduct' tracks, I believe they usually have a smaller gauge as well. There's one park in the Netherlands that has both:http://www.stoomgroepwest.nl/index.php/nl/fotoalbum/category/19-rijdagen2011

They even have working semaphores and electric signals, railway crossings, signal boxes, a turntable etc.

 

 

A real railway crossing from the Dutch railways:
