If you as a new comer, you thought you like the steam head ah, but you have no knowledge of them,how to start?
(I remember when I was new, do not understand anything, but to see the first steam engine,I just buy it thoughtlessly)

Whether it is too complicated , and you do not know how to start ? I would recommend a newcomer to buy a reasonable price of the entry car around HKD 300-600 price is reasonable, as a start for your new hobby. Watching the connecting rod, cultivate the interest of the steam engine, and so to  deep understanding, and then step forward to the special and rare models…

Starting from the beginning to buy :

Newer models are easier to get!

(the most recent production of KATO new track C59 (doing well,relative easy to get as it is relatively new model…  / MicroAce)

Depends on what  is your budget…

If budget is not too much , just buy MicroAce models (MA almost have all models of stemlocomotives )

Price from high to low:

MicroAce = KATO old model

Note that the above price is only ordinary models, special rare models unconventional price are not comparable, not in this article entry discussion range

Classic models:

Japanese King of SL and later

C57 has the title of a lady, is the queen of the steam engine

2008-1 Tomix C57-1   2007-1 C57-180

D51: the king of the Japanese steam-locomotive, deserved, the Japanese steam engine of the highest usage
models: 2016-1 D51 498  D51 498東方快車塗裝

Bigboy: the largest steam engine, the man’s romance! Although the unit price is not cheap, but very typical loco.

3 main brands of steam engine features:

Microace:

Most variety  models, the most refined car shell, including a lot of special models (other brands will not be out
) (E10,9800, deformation car, car shell the most exquisite, but the motor exposed, a lot of car problems, power is also quite easy to fault …. is love and hate …)

Kato:

New regulations built-in motor, that is, a cab, you can put the driver into, more like a real

(Product number :2014 after the new regulation models!

(To note: there are old and new kato steam loco models, old motor exposed, the proportion of some problems, than the real car, no flywheel)

Tomix:

If you want the finest ones, just choose  Tomix HG series! (Model: c57 180 / c61 20 / c57 1 / c57 135 / C61)

But the unit price is very high, more than 10,000 yen !

Feeling: wrote some N rail entry, this time finally wrote back to the old line, the steam engine entry. Hope to have more newcomers interested in the steam engine , enlarging the N-scale steam circle!

滿鐵燈火管制

1934年11月1日,特別急行列車「あじあ」号開始營運、大連~新京間(是满洲国的首都,即今中华人民共和国吉林省省会长春市。新京坐落在满洲国中部)(全程701.4km的路程大約要8小時30分鐘。満鉄是俄羅斯時代的線路,再改良為可高速行駛的設計。機関車與客車都被流線型化、機関車パシナ(パシフィック型 の7番目の機関車的意思)動輪直徑2.0m、全車長25.6m、車高4.8m;是日本最大的機關車,并有的最高速度,130km/h 。客車安裝了空調及付隔音設計、3軸台車的設計,令行走其間更穩定。

今天的主角是MicroAce 的蒸汽機頭 (A7007)国鉄C53-43流線型・改良。

歷史背景:

實車於1934年11月製造,由於當時非常流行流線形的車頭設計,所以就出現了這款車頭怪怪C53,它最高速度可以達到100km/h喔!

實車最後於1940年全數廢車,現在C53在日本鷹取工場保存,但不清楚流線型有否保存。

C53 43 號機是當時的實驗機,由於成績頗好,後來昭和10年量產了10輛,「燕」號 客車和展望車的後部也改造為流線形、以貫通幌減少車體幅度減少空氣阻力。

據說由於車體要密封,減少空氣阻力,內部溫度非常高,檢查時間比其他非流線改造的C53長180%以上,後來把部份密封鋼板取消。

C53-43

非常漂亮的連桿

C53-43

C53形蒸気機関車是由日本国的前身鉄道省美國輸入的C52型自行研發出的水櫃蒸汽機頭

與德國的流線型火車頭很像

C53-43

 汽笛沒有外露,保存流線型

C53-43

車頭也是流線型,不同與其他蒸汽火車的圓形。

以鐵片封閉煤炭車卡,減少空氣阻力。

 C53-43

可惜沒有做出車頭下方的紅燈,只塗上紅色了事。

C53-43

最喜歡這個角度

我對一些外形特別的蒸汽火車有情意結。在二戰期間,日本,德國科技發展特別快,衍生出各種奇奇怪怪的火車頭。其時興流線型火車頭以挑戰最高時速,C53 也是思潮的其中一產物。
