IRFC is a dedicated market borrowing arm of the Indian Railways. When capital expenditure requirements of the Indian railways is not met through the Budgetary support and their other sources of funding (such as internally arranged funds, etc), Indian Railways resorts to borrow from the market through IRFC and such acquired assets will be leased from IRFC.
This post describes the scratch building process to build a home etched brass HO scale petroleum / oils 2 axle, 4 wheel tank car used extensively by the Indian railways.
I recently completed the build of a 4 wheel / 2 axle tank car denoted TP or TK and used extensively to carry petroleum and allied oil products on the Indian railways. These were once the workhorse of the majority of the liquid freight on the IR and only recently been retired for scrap.
The body is mostly 0.01” (024 mm) sheet brass from K&S metals that was etched using a unique masking technique. A few small high detail parts were produced using a resin 3D printer called Elegoo Mars Pro 2 that I’ve recently acquired.
I scoured through several online documents, maintenance manuals to define dimensions in HO scale (1/87). I’m well aware of the HO track gauge and IR prototype broad gauge discrepancy, but in the interest of compatibility I choose to ignore the track gauge discrepancy and focus on the model overall.
Once a few sketches were done, the plans were designed in 2D in auto-cad (most body shapes were flattened to their 2D forms and then drafted; eg. the tank rolls out to a flat rectangle). Small detailed parts like leaf springs, bearings for the axles and tanker caps were also designed and drafted in 3D in auto CAD.
There is now a fork in the build process for the majority brass parts vs. the 3d printed parts. Firstly,
Once the 2D design was finalized, it was exported to a silhouette portrait 2 desktop Vinyl cutter ( this has been extensively been spoken about in the thread: Paper cutting machines). The Vinyl cutter essentially plots the design but instead of ink uses a blade to slice through an adhesive backed vinyl sheet that will act as a kind of mask (similar to masking tape).
Vinyl is ‘weeded’ to expose the br... keep reading on reddit ➡
