Model Railway - Flange Lubrication and Reservoir

Model Railway - Flange Lubrication and Reservoir 3D print model


Track lubrication reservoirs are used on modern railway to reduce rail and wheel wear and also reducing wheel squeal and flanging noise.

This is a representation of the Whitmore Lubricurve Reservoir. I was unable to get the exact measurements of this item despite contacting Whitmore so this a close match for there reservoir.

This item has been designed at OO gauge, 1/76.2 scale. For HO Gauge print at 87%, 1/87 Scale, For O Gauge UK print at 175%, 1/43.5 scale, For O Gauge International print at 158%, 1/48 scale, For N Gauge UK print at 51.5%, 1/148 Scale, (Caution: I have not test printed this in N gauge scale). Note: Despite this being designed at OO Scale it is used on HO Scale track.

Examples in the photo's were printed on a AnyCubic Photon M3 Resin Printer

I recommend printing this items on a 3D resin printer to get the best resolution print, in OO this is quite a small item so some of the detail might not show when printed. As per normal with my designs there is a balance between accuracy and printability, hopefully not affecting the design of the model too much.
