Blueprints or detailed drawing of wooden coaster t

Saturday, March 22, 2003 4:28 AM
I am in the process of designing a wooden rollercoaster train in full scale, and I was wondering if anyone on here knew of any pictures of the undersides of the trains so that I could see how they set up the wheel assemblies. Mostly what I am concerned about are the bottom upstop wheels and how to connect them. Any pictures are appreciated as they seem to be very hard to come by.

I dont know where to find any drawings, but where are you going to put a full scale coaster train? Are you only doing one car or the entire train?

Right now we are drawing out the train and a small section of track to put it on in autocad so that we can sit in it to watch TV in my bf's basement. We have not started making it yet because we would like to get it all planned out first. We are starting with that and hopefully one day we will get a plot of land large enough for us to finish our project. (It's only going to be 20 feet tall, but we are trying to pack it with a lot of airtime.) We are trying to make one train right now, with only one seat in it. We're thinking that we can add two more behind it and have a nice train someday. If I get started on it I will be sure to post pictures on my website for you but it is still in the planning and development phase at the moment.

This is the funniest thing I've heard today! A 20 foot tall coaster packed with airtime. Riiight...

Good luck, though!

Hey, if you want to check out this site, it has every patent ever filed throughout the years, even ones in the 1800's, i am sure you can find the underside of a wooden roller coaster in these.

It also depend how sharp the pullovers are. If you have a small 3 car trains each with a single seat than I'd thank it can be done. But it would only work for a backyard coaster.

D'oh! You're right Coasterpunk, this is humiliating. Knoebels is my homepark to make it worse! ;)
