Plan-F Module 1 "Waldbrunn"

Rob Versluis

Size: 2000 x 546 x 125 (mm)
Material: 12mm Multiplex, Birch
Date of building start: xx-xx-2008



Quantity Length (mm) Width (mm)
2 546 125
4 522 109
2 1976 125
1 1976 50
1* 1976 522

*Adjust width to your needs to reduce weight. I took 320mm for this module. The 4mm gap is filled out with 4mm cork plates.

I call it Fremo 'Light' because I reduced the profile height from 195mm to 125mm, but still compatible with the 2E96. On the south and north side of the module I will make 'windows' to reduce the weight without loosing stabillity.

The parts are only set together, nothing constructed jet. The result of working on the module skeleton for one day.

Offset correction from 59mm Tillig raster to 46mm NEM. I used track sections of R4 which has a radius of 543mm, and the total length of the correction is 160mm. This module will become "Bahnhof Waldbrunn". (Faller 110099)

Mounted servo. With a servo tester you can check the servo before mounting it and afterwards the switch movements.

Module connection

End tracks are made easy and cheap.
