Take also a look at the chain shown around mid page. Jose.

I'd love to have some fusee chain at hands, as it is a lasting and reliable replacement for belt drives in small locos.

Looking down through that link Jose gave I came across the Sentinel Steam Wagon pictures. Interesting motors he uses. I wonder if he got that idea me. (kidding) I used those in my animated crane and got them off of E-bay. Have about 100 of those motors. Great for animating the type of equipment he shows.

That chain is used as a flexible tension member in watches, but I wonder if there is enough space between the ''rollers'' for sprocket teeth?

Tried to buy the book, even sent a donation to cover extra shipping, but form only accepts UK as a destination.

Some awesome models ... As for that chain, I can't even imagine how it was made with the technology of the time period

Hi Herb,

I don't know how far you searched for this book but both Amazon and Barnes & Noble have them listed on their web site. They are available in book form and also both come in what ever Kindle and Nook is.

The rail trucks are amazing, thanks pipopak for posting the link.

@George W
Those chains were made by orphan child labour in England and France, what else?

Thanks for the tip. I was trying to buy it direct from the association, thinking that it was of too limited interest

Some times the obvious is right in front of our nose.

Double DUH!

Yes, I saw the orphans mentioned, I was thinking of the tools, likely hand tools of the time.

Kinda like trying to carve a toothpick with a chain saw
