Salon du modélisme, Miniaturland 2012 Cité du train Mulhouse. 3ème partie.
Cette 3ème partie de ce dimanche 30 septembre montre ce que je considère comme le meilleur et le plus réaliste réseau ferroviaire HO du salon. Cette vidéo a une durée de 10 minutes. J'aurai pu écourter mais vu la qualité et la beauté de ce réseau j'ai préféré ne pas en diminuer la longueur. Les fans de ce genre de modélisme regarderont certainement entièrement la vidéo et pour les autres visiteurs, rien n'empêche de sauter quelques scènes. Voici des explication de ce réseau que j'ai retranscrit du texte donnée par le modéliste anglais Peter North. Joachin Virginia. Ce réseau HO reproduit la ligne secondaire électrifiée de la Virginian Railway des années 50. Cette ligne a été créée en 1909 pour transporter le charbon des montagnes Appalaches situé dans le West Virginia. (Virginie-Occidentale à l'Est des Etats-Unis) Contrairement aux habitudes des chemins de fer américains, le "Mountain Zone" a été électrifié pour pouvoir tracter les convois de plus de 3000 tonnes sur les fortes pentes de la région. En sortant des montagnes, à Roanoke, Virginia, 3 à 4 convois étaient attelés en un seul convoi de 10 à 12000 tonnes pour continuer le voyage jusqu'à la côte Atlantique. Le Virginian railway a été acheté par le chemin de fer Norfolk and Western en 1960. En 1962 l'électrification de la ligne a été supprimée et les puissantes machines ont depuis disparues de la circulation. Vidéo enregistrée avec le Panasonic Lumix FZ200

New Amtrak ACS-64 electric locomotives 601 and 600 in revenue service!
On March 1, 2014 I encountered the new Amtrak ACS-64 electric locomotives in revenue service for the first time. Amtrak ACS-64 #601 was powering a Northeast Regional train going to New York Penn Station and then later turned around to go back to Washington D.C. Union Station. After ACS-64 #601 runs through I went into New York City but returned later to find it sitting in New York Penn Station. I took a quick look at the new electric locomotive and while looking at it you can hear it's idling noises. After returning back to Secaucus ACS-64 #601 then speeds through Secaucus with a friendly horn blast from the engineer. After the train disappears into the distance you can hear the horn blow again as he continues back to Washington D.C. Union Station. About an hour later I was about to leave as I was walking down the platform I happened to turn around and see the headlights for another ACS-64 electric! I quickly took out my camera and saw that this is ACS-64 #600 leading another Northeast Regional train to New York Penn Station. It is great to finally see these new Amtrak electric locomotives in service. They have great horns and I am looking forward to seeing more of them. Better get those AEM-7 and HHP-8 pictures now because once all the ACS-64's are delivered we won't see them anymore. Rate and comment!

Finnish electric locomotive Sr1 / Sähköveturi Sr1
Finnish electric locomotive Sr1 Sr1 is the first electric locomotive of Finland. Maximum speed is 140 km/h. It has continous power rating of 3100 kW, one hour output of 3280 kW and unoffical power rating (1500V wagon electricity counted too) of about 5000 kW. Electric supply is 25 kV 50 Hz ac overhead wire. Traction motors are 4 DC /820 kW/motor (offical), controlled by Strömberg-manufactured (former Finnish company, nowadays part of ABB) thyristor power rectifier drive. It was ordered from USSR, mainly because of political reasons. It is manufactured in Novochserkassk Electric Locomotive Works, former USSR. First locomotives were delivered on year 1973. Last production model from factory was delivered on 1985. Two additional locomotives were built at the Hyvinkää Machine Workshop in 1993 and 1995, number 3111 from spare parts and number 3112 from the original prototype locomotive (number 3000) that was never used. The locomotives originally carried a dark red livery, with white stripes around and below the cab windows. The stripes were later replaced with yellow warning panels (resembling stylished wings) below the cab windows. From the early 1990s onwards this livery has been replaced by a white livery with red stripes. The nicknames for these locomotives are "Siperian susi" (Wolf of Siberia; it comes from the typical sound of Sr1, when it passes you can heard the "wolf crying" ; in Finnish slang "susi" can also mean a poorly manufactured object. Two Sr1 class locomotives have been damaged beoynd repair, number 3048 in an accident in Jokela in 1996 and number 3089 in an accident in Jyväskylä in 1998. There is a total 110 Sr1-class locomotives in service today. More information of locomotive: http://www.kotimaki.com/rautatie/rstock/sr1.shtml http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VR_Class_Sr1

Steam Coal Drag in Hinton, West Virginia
Chesapeake and Ohio HO model Railroad in Bay Area of California. This layout is based upon the prototype and the Main Yard is Hinton West Virginia. You will see a cola drag coming into Hinton Yard, a helper engine added to the end of train in front of caboose and then the train going up the hill to other end of layout. Steam engines use Tsunami sound decoders and Digital system is NCE. (I taped this at 320 with 15 FPS and will record it again at higher resolution someday)

NS GE's pull hard up grade over Virginian's fantastic Garwood trestle, in 1988
Up until about 1990, the long hood end was the normal, or F end of the locomotive on Norfolk Western and Southern, then NS. We are on top of the tunnel portal on the old Virginian overlooking the Garwood Trestle. It is a hard climb from the road below, and had to take a few brakes on the way up to catch my breath. The train is working hard up-grade, and has a nice set of helpers with slug sets pushing ahead of the caboose on the rear. Thanks for looking. Jackmp294

Seen here is AJNI WAP-7 30303 hauling 12541 Gorakhpur-Mumbai LTT Superfast which has a LHB Hybrid rake , the train had to stop at Habibganj and as soon as it got the green signal the powerful WAP-7 just pulled away with the 20 coaches as fast as possible.





NS Trains on the Former Virginian at Merrimac Tunnel
Norfolk Southern trains 18M and 186 emerging from the east portal of the Merrimac Tunnel during the first snowfall of the season. The mile long tunnel, also known as the Allegheny Summit Tunnel, passes under the Eastern Continental Divide. It was built by the Virginian Railway between 1906 and 1908 and saw passage of the railroad's first train the following year. Remarkably, the tunnel lies beneath two busy highways and numerous homes and businesses yet remains virtually unknown to area residents because both portals and the rail line itself are well hidden. Recorded near Christiansburg, VA on Dec. 5, 2009.
