Rochester Model RailsFebruary 2003Page 2Lionel TechnologyBy James C. Hutton For those of us who operate Lionel trains these are the best of times.In 1994 Lionel introduced their Trainmaster Command Control(TMCC) remote operating system.By fundamentally changing the way Lionel trainsare controlled this system has revolutionized how Lionel trains are operated, and madepossible many new features that improve theiroperation. Since the introduction of the first “command-equipped” engines in 1995 Lionelhas included the TMCC system on more andmore of both their steam and diesel engines.The TMCC system has naturally resulted in many physical changes to the inside of Lionelengines. A good example of these changes canbe see by comparing a modern-era Lionel 18327Virginian Fairbanks Morse Trainmaster dieselengine produced in 1999 and 2000 with a postwar Lionel 2331 Virginian Fairbanks MorseTrainmaster diesel engine produced from 1955to 1958. The outward appearance of the twoengines is essentially identical. Both engineshave vertical, worm-drive motors, Magne Traction , and operating couplers andheadlights on each end. However, as you cansee, the electro-mechanical E-unit and hornrelay in the post-war engine have been replacedby an electronic circuit board in the modern-eraone, the diagraphm-type horn by a speaker, andthe 1.5 volt D-cell battery by a 9 volt battery.More importantly the operation of a TMCC engine, like the Lionel 18327, is significantlydifferent from its post-war predecessor. Asmany of you will remember, the speed of a postwar engine was controlled by moving a lever orhandle on a transformer, direction was changedby momentarily interrupting the track voltagewith a spring-loaded button, and the horn wasactivated by a spring-loaded switch. Thecouplers could only be operated on an UCSuncoupling track section. In contrast the speed,direction, horn, and uncoupling of a TMCCengine are all controlled from a Lionel CAB-1wireless, remote controller. The speed iscontrolled by turning a large knob on the CAB-1and engine direction, horn sound, anduncoupling are controlled by individual buttons.The “direction” button also controls theheadlights and interior cab lights on a TMCCengine since they are “directional”. That is,when the button is pressed for “forward” thelights in the front of the engine are lit and theones on the rear are unlit, and vice versa. Oneof the other significant features of a TMCCengine is that the front and rear couplers(ElectroCouplers ) can be actuated anywhereon your layout.Lastly, the TMCC system provides for control of,and addition of many new features, to itsRailSounds system. In addition to the realistic diesel horn and engine sounds, Lionel hasadded the sounds of a bell, towercommunications(T o w e r C o m ) ,crewcommunications (CrewTalk ), and braking(TrainBrakes ) to its TMCC engines. Actuationof these sounds, and their volume, are allcontrolled from the CAB-1. With each newversion of the RailSounds system thesesounds have become more realistic.Lionel 2331Lionel 18327

February 2003Rochester Model RailsPage 3Sticks as Structures – Part IBy Richard RothIntroduction“Sticks as Structures” may seem astrange name for an article, but when onelooks at some of the objects to which thename “sticks” has been attributed andconsiders the complexities of their use thenthey do indeed become “structures”. Theobjects to which I am referring in this articleare “telephone poles” or more correctly,“utility poles”. We see them everywhereeveryday, but seldom really give them anyserious thought. I am going to present thisin two segments the first some basics, and inthe second some details on adding detail.My use of the term “stick” to describethem stems from a man for whom I workedfor 3 summers while in college. He was myforeman on a truck dedicated to “plantingsticks” as he referred to it. In reality, we setutility poles for Dayton Power & LightCompany in Dayton, Ohio. This truck wasequipped with an auger that could dig holesfrom 24 to 48 inches in diameter, with achange of auger bits, to a dept of 20 feet.Only some of the largest sticks requiredholes that deep. Most holes were 24 to 30inches in diameter and about 6 feet deep, buta few like the 75 feet monsters requiredholes dug down to 15 feet deep.So much on that portion of thebackground, now lets discuss a bit why Ithink the topic deserves some space in apublication that is predominately directed tomodel railroading. Well, much of myreason stems from a recent visit to a layoutin the west central portion of our country nottoo long ago. I saw a beautiful layoutmodeling relatively modern times. Much ofthe equipment and structures were eitherbuilt from scratch, kit bashed or very highlydetailed and really did a lot for the overalllayout. However, and here comes thekicker, there was a power generating stationon the layout that was connected to severalvillages and manufacturing areas about 10 to25 feet distant by simulated electric linescarried on poles. Each pole was a piece ofwood dowel pushed into the hard-shell witha single piece of what almost appeared to betwine glued to the top.The BasicsI am going to deal exclusively with singlesticks made of wood. These poles or“sticks” range in length from 20 feet to somemonster 75 and 85 footers. The mostcommon used by utility companies are in therange of 30 feet in length, seen mostly inresidential areas where they are used foraerial utilities and street light mounting, to45 and 50 footers used to carry mediumvoltages greater distances and in industrialareas.As I mentioned I intend to address onlywooden poles and those used singly to carryvarious utilities. Concrete, steel and nowplastic composite poles are seeing their wayinto use more and more frequently, but thewooden pole remains the king. Woodenpoles offer the most flexibility of any used.Their upper reaches can be accessed bylinesman without the use of expensivebucket or lift trucks, they frequently last 40to 50 years or more and can be modifiedafter the initial installation by just drillingsome additional holes.

Rochester Model RailsFebruary 2003Page 4Sticks as Structures – Part I (continued)Wooden poles have been treated with preservatives to stall off rote, insect invasion and otherconditions that might befall any respectable tree. As they age, the myriad of enemies increases.Weather takes a toll by causing the preservatives to dissipate. This aging causes significantchanges in the appearance of poles. Poles that were once very dark in color and with a smoothouter shell through aging become much lighter in color and very rough in texture on the outside.When manufactured, wooden poles have several characteristics that are included as standardsof the industry. One is the “brand”. This is a mark about 10 to 16 feet above the base of the polethat identifies the manufacturer. This brand can be as simple as 2 or 3 letters to those used in the“old west” to brand cattle. They are identifying marks used to denote the manufacturer. Also atthe brand will usually be a line of 2 numbers in the form “30 – 6” or “45 / 2”. The first identifiesthe length of the pole and the second the diameter. The smaller the 2ndnumber, the larger the diameter. Depending on the country of manufacture,NEUthe diameter designation will either apply at the bottom of the pole or at thebrand. Those manufactured in the U.S. most often denote base. A few40-2manufactured in foreign countries may have a 3rd number. If so, that woulddenote the taper from base to top. To the right is a typical brand found in21-342-06 1994this area bearing the initials, “NEU”, of the manufacturer and below it thepole size, 40-2. Below the pole size designation is a metal tag that carriesthe pole number and the date it was erected. The pole tag is usually attached to the pole so that itcan easily be read from equipment passing on the road if along side. This pole number is usedby the utility installing the pole.The brand also serves another important function for the utility crews when erecting a pole.The brand is at a right angle to the holes bored through the pole by the manufacturer. Whenplanting the stick, the brand aids the crew in positioning the pole so the cross arms will be intheir proper positions. Most poles have several holes at industry standard locations already foruse when the pole is stood up. This reduces the time and work that the linesman must do whenframing out a pole. Additional holes that may be required will either been drilled before the poleis installed in the hole or may be drilled through later.There are several different pole top end configurations, a.) cut flat across, b.) 1-cut slopped,and c.) 2-cut slopped all can be seen. These can be the preference of the utility company or themanufacturer. They look like this:a.)b.)c.)As mentioned, the top end treatment may be the preference of the utility company. Thesecond to versions are by far the most common as they provide some natural draining of waterfrom the top. The first or flat cut is much less common. One utility in this writer’s area does usethis style as they attach a disk of metal to the tops of their poles to reduce the amount of waterthat can enter from the top. Years ago they used lead sheet, today they use copper sheet toreduce the presence of the lead in the environment.

February 2003Rochester Model RailsPage 5Sticks as Structures – Part I (continued)The typical initial installation with a truckmounted digger and crane will consist of apole with one cross arm. A ground wire,that was nailed to the pole while it still wason the ground, runs from the top to thebottom. If you were to observe the polebeing prepared, you might see a flat coil ofseveral feet of copper wire nailed to thebottom of the pole to provide a better earthground. The ground wire will haveconnections made to it as installation iscontinued. Since crews may have a group ofpoles to set for a project, they may preparethe poles ahead of planting them. Thus, it isnot uncommon to see poles with groundwire and cross arm attached but the pole stillresting on the ground (modeling hint).Probably 70% of wooden utility poles inuse today carry more than just electricalpower. They also carry phone lines and TVcable signal lines to name a few. Poles arenot just planted anywhere there is anapparent need. Before a utility can plant apole they must obtain permission in the formof an easement or right-of-way from theowner of the property. This could be aprivate individual, a company or a civilentity such as a city or town. Once obtainedthe pole can be planted.Since electrical power demand is themost likely to require poles, the electricalservice providers are the utilities most likelyto obtain a right-of-way. They will thenconstruct their line on newly erected poles.If there is a need for phone or other servicecarried by wires, the electrical supplier willrent out space on the poles for other lines.That is the reason you frequently see anumber of different lines at various heightson a pole. One utility holds the right-of-wayand the others piggyback onto it throughcooperative efforts. Each day on my driveto my office I pass one set of poles (about30) with 14 lines on it. They include boththe primary and secondary power lines(more about them latter), TV antenna cable,local phone lines and 4 long-distance phonecables, 3 copper conductors and 1 fiberoptic.When different utilities use the samepole, each has a section that is allocated forits use. They are responsible for allattachments to that pole in their area. Theyare also responsible for any additions thatare required for their use. Since each utilityhas their own numbering scheme, they willalso probably provide their own number forthe pole. Therefore they will attach anadditional pole tag for their use.For the upper reaches of a pole carryingelectrical power lines, there is a hierarchy ororder in which lines are located. Thishierarchy always dictates that the highestvoltage lines are positioned at the highestpoint on the pole. Lower voltages arelocated in descending order lower on thepole. Thus, a pole supporting power lines of56,000, 6,900 and 120 volts may very willbe found on the same pole. The first two,rated high voltages, and the last, 120 volts,is the secondary branch voltage. More willbe discussed about this later. Down low arethe phones and antenna service cables.In the next installment, I will discuss therouting of power lines and what needs to bedone to prevent unnecessary strain on thepoles when they are stretched to theextreme. I will also go into more detailabout how lines are used and their positionson the poles. Until then, start thinking abouthow you might use some utility poles onyour layout.

February 2003Rochester Model RailsPage 6Creating the Scenic Base withWet N Shape – Part IBy Dick SengesFor years model railroaders have be struggling with various methods of makingthe basic shell form using industrial paper towels dipped in plaster (plasteralways seems to hit the floor) or the newer but more expensive plaster cloth.Whether you use corrugated strips, chicken wire, or foam as a base, working withthese methods can be messy. The following describes an alternative method ofcompleting your scenic base.First, create your sub base. I use strips cut from used large corrugated boxes,especially those from people who have just moved and are discarding largewardrobe boxes. Any large box works fine since the goal is to get many longcorrugated strips in your inventory before you start.I cut the box into large sheets with a utility knife and then cut the sheets into 2inch strips on my table saw. It is best to cut perpendicular to the flutes in thecorrugated so that it is easier to bend the corrugated strips to the desired contourlater. Cut a bunch of these strips and bundle them with rubber bands for lateruse. It is best to cut many strips at one time since cutting the corrugated createsa lot of paper dust.The next step is to attach these strips to your benchwork. Use hot glue here tomake the work go faster. Watch out not to get the glue on your fingers ( I alwaysseem to do this) since it is very hot and will burn your skin – ouch! Interweavethe strips, i.e., over – under – over – under – and clip the overlapping strips withwood or plastic clothes pins while the hot glue dries. This should only take a fewseconds so you don’t need very many clothespins. The Dollar Store sells a largepack of pins for a dollar. I usually hot glue the vertical strips first to thebenchwork and then interweave the horizontal strips, then the glue and pin. Bythe time I get to the end of a section, the glue has dried and I can reuse the pins.Try to leave less than 3 inches of open space between each strip so adequatesupport is provided for the next step.Now the fun part. Instead of using plaster soaked paper towels or plaster cloth,try a material called Wet N’ Shape. This material is sold as a Craft Cloth and is100% natural cotton impregnated with some sort of starchy material. It is dry tothe touch and relatively stiff.It can be purchased from retailers in smallquantities or from fabric wholesalers in 50 yard x 39/40” bolts, with a five-boltminimum. I purchased five bolts in 1993 at a cost of about 10 cents per squarefoot and have used about 1000 square feet on my layout to date.

February 2003Rochester Model RailsPage 7Creating the Scenic Base with Wet N Shape – Part I (continued)The nice feature of this cloth is that it will stay stiff for about a minute after it isdipped into water. This allows you to position the cloth exactly where you want itand not have soupy plaster towels or shapeless plaster cloth to contend with. Noplaster hits the floor!First step is to cut the Wet N’ Shape into workable sections. If you are doing alarge area, one-foot squares are a good size to work with. Cut about 50 of theseso you won’t have to stop in the middle of the process. Dip one piece into waterand immediately pull it out of the water. Hold up the piece over your pail of waterfor about three seconds to drain off the excess water. Now is the easy part.Position the cloth exactly where you want it over your base. Place the seamsover a piece of corrugated strip or if on foam or wire, just place it over the base.Overlap subsequent pieces of the material by 50% so that when you havecompleted an area, there are two layers of Wet N’ Shape. Smooth the seamsdown with your fingers.Where a seam of the Wet N’ Shape meets the completed existing scenic base, Iusually run a bead of white glue to help adhere the Wet N’ Shape to the base.This is not necessary, but prevents me going back later to adhere any runawayseams or corners.If you are doing a curved area, for example, next to a curved track, precut theWet N’ Shape to the approximate curve before wetting the material. Then wetthe material and place the precut curved edge next to the curved track area. If itdoes not exactly fit, not to worry since the Wet N’ Shape will become flexible asthe seconds tick by allowing you to make final adjustments.Now it is time to let the Wet N’ Shape dry. This will probably take overnight sincethe material was pretty wet going on and it is double thick (50% overlap). Do notproceed to the next step until this material is absolutely dry. If in a rush, put a fanon the material to dry more quickly.In the next installment, I will discuss the plaster and dirt steps.FOR SALE:Rail - I have an extra bundle of weathered code 70 rail to sell.

February 2003Rochester Model RailsPage 8Ask Doctor Dick (The Scenery Doctor)Linda writes:I am trying to make an HO scale gravelindustrial parking lot for the 1930s –1940s era. I am having trouble with thebase and have tried a couple ofmethods, but they are not satisfactory.I purchased off-white power calledGravel Road. The instructions said topress the material in with your fingersover a 1/16th layer of cocoa coloredpaint. I did this but did not like theresults. What should I do?Doc:First, develop your parking area withHydrocal plaster over your basematerial. Paint it dark brown and coatwith a slurry of white glue, water anddirt. Then I would sift HO scale “crusherrun” gravel onto the wet dirt.Real crusher run is about 1” to ”crushed stone, mostly granite. It hassharp edges and packs nicely whendriven on. You see this frequently inparking lots. Go to a gravel pit and getsome free crusher run dust, which thegravel guy should give you for free. Youare looking for a final size of 0.0115” (1”in HO scale) to about 0.006” (1/2” in HOscale). The “fines” or dust can also beused.Since you are using the real stuff, it willhave the right color, and if you size itright, it will be the right size. What couldbe better? Remember - texture andcolor – texture and color!If you want to vary the color slightly,make it somewhat lighter brown, mix insome dry Durham’s Water Putty orsome sifted sand, or some ground whitepepper. The water putty will be a veryfine light brown dust. The sand is sandand may be too large unless sifted veryfine. The white pepper is a dirty whitecolor, but very fine.Don’t forget the potholes.Gravelparking lots always have these potholes,usually with mud in them, not stones,and sometimes water. Of course watercan be modeled using Envirotex, or youcould put in the bottom of the hole somewhite glue/water/sifted dirt slurry. Makeit a very wet solution. It will drysomewhat dark brown and slightly shiny,like wet mud. Also, add some car tiretracks in the gravel.Remember, the stone may be marble,so don’t take it for granite! Good luckwith your 1940s gravel parking lot!Don’t Forget theRochester Model RailsWeb
