Your Guide to Modelling French Railways

France is a land of rail contrasts; the popular image of a local train ambling through the countryside has long since given way to the smart, speedy TVG.

In places the landscape required impressive feats of civil engineering, even on the secondary routes, which meandered cross-country between the busy mainlines.

Nowadays unique tourist railways add to the appeal.

Here is just a small selection to inform and inspire.

5 Plank, Burtt Gloucester Beehive Manufacturer, No. 6

Private owner wagons abounded prior to nationalisation, they would often be seen far from their base as they were sent to collect raw materials and supplies such as coal, and deliver finished goods. All Peco wagons feature free running wheels in pin point axles. The ELC coupling, whilst compatible with the standard N gauge couplings, keeps a realistic distance between vehicles and enables the PL-25 electro magnetic decoupler to be used for remote uncoupling.

Highland Railway Signal Box

A accurately laser cut wood kit supplemented by injection moulded roof. Glue and paints required to complete model.

00-9 Box Van Colman's Mustard

Something a little bit different, these excellently finished ready to run wagons are fictitious and based on some of our more popular ready to run wagons in the N Gauge range.

ARP Signal Box

These specially reinforced ARP (Air Raid Precautions) signal boxes featured substantial construction, primarily to protect the locking room gear from bomb blasts during air raids in World War II. A number of similar signal box designs were still to be found around the rail network until quite recently, due to them being difficult to demolish!
The 554 includes all moulded parts required which are produced to a high standard and in base colours. Kit requires painting and light weathering to create the signal box pictured above.

 

Twistlock Motor

TwistLock a basic electric solenoid motor, for operating (in the main) turnouts.

It is powered by a normal 16vDC supply (and can take up to 3 amps) and is fully compatible with all PECO turnouts up to O gauge (and can handle many other proprietary brands too). But no longer will any soldering of wires to the terminals be necessary, nor the cutting of large holes in the baseboard.

Each motor is supplied with a template, which the modeller uses to accurately mark the position of three holes that need to be drilled. The two outer holes are used to attach mounting studs beneath the baseboard. The larger centre hole is where the drive pin of the motor is positioned and threaded through the tie bar of the turnout. The motor is then simply twisted, and locked, into position and will remain firmly attached when operated. An extra operating bar, and spacers for the studs is included with every motor, enabling the above-board mounting of the motor where needed.

Twistlock Motor and Microswitch

TwistLock a basic electric solenoid motor, for operating (in the main) turnouts and Microswitch for option to switch polarities, or to operate signals or panel lights etc.

It is powered by a normal 16vDC supply (and can take up to 3 amps) and is fully compatible with all PECO turnouts up to O gauge (and can handle many other proprietary brands too).

Twistlock Twin Microswitch

TwistLock Twin Microswitch to be used with PL-1000 for option to switch polarities, or to operate signals or panel lights etc. Easy to fit to PL-1000, simply twist and lock onto Twistlock point motor.
