|July 28, 2008 -- First Test Of The GregTrain|
|The first job is to mount
the 18 hp motor to my frame and then couple the 10kw alternator.
The electric motor is a rated 4500 RPM - 10A - 130 VDC - 2.5 HP
This is the actual frame I plan on using for my first actual "on rail" tests.
I plan on using approximately 15:1 reduction which should give me about
5 mph with 5" wheels.
It is my intention to use two drive motors. One for each set of either 4 or 6 wheels.
