Most of the time there would be 2 frog switches but not overhere. Too much work I guess :bg:.

No guard rails-------and not self guarding frogs either.

Must be that the frog angle is so great that the wheels can't pick the frog.

P.S. Can you get it in Bachmann Snap-Track ?

Hi alwin,

Any idea what country and what gauge ?

Herb correct I think, crossing angle looks to be sufficiently acute to avoid use of guard rails.

Interesting modelling opportunity !

Regards. Michael

Michael,

I found it in a pdf file. This info stood by this picture:
This 3 ft 6 in gauge 3-way stub point was at Henry’s No.1 Mill, Forrest, Victoria.

I gues Victoria in Australia, because the pdf is about logging tramways in Australia and New-Zealand.

The pdf can be found here:

Hi Alwin.

NICE PDF !

Good find.

Those 'home grown' New Zealand geared loco's (inc. 16 wheelers) sound interesting !

Anyone got/find any pix. ?

Cheers

Si.

Not quite 16, but 12
Drawings can be found here.
The 16-wheeler is here.

Hi all
A G Price in NZ also did a 16-wheeler
http://www.trainweb.org/nzgearedlocomotives/price.html
It has been modeled in HOn30 by Professor Klyzlr in Oz,
http://www.geocities.ws/loggingloco1/BVT/bvlocomotive1.html for his Broughton Vale Tramway
