big in small things car system streets are coming to life getting started with faller car system • roadmaking with faller laser-street • products and tools • tips and tricks

2 start-set faller car system – definitely more movement the functionality is quite simple yet ingenious with faller car system cars will move over the installed roadways as if controlled invisibly a starter set includes all the parts required for quick and easy entry into faller car system learn about the various methods for designing roadways in this brochure and installing a simple track will soon add maximum driving pleasure it doesn’t get simpler than this cars lorries and busses faller offers an extensive assortment of vehicles in track gauges h0 and n and new items are added every year of course experienced hobbyists also have the option to add and convert their own vehicles motor and steering are the heart just as in real life the models have a motor steering and rechargeable batteries in place of a fuel tank an on/off switch is located on the vehicle’s underside once the motor voltage has been switched on the cars will move independently without external

start-set integration into existing designs the flexibility in routeing roadways allows faller car system to be integrated in existing designs various options to match your basic layout will add traffic to your design the content of a start-set is as follows or storage battery charger/batteries 10 m special contact wire roadway paint street filler guardrails border posts street markings

4 roadway design making roadway design a certain success laser-street roads are every city’s nerve cords just as a design will only truly come alive with animated streets the right basic knowledge and the extensive faller accessories make roadway designs a breeze there are different techniques and accessories depending on what you wish to accomplish faller laser-street faller laser-street features prefabricated street elements which simply connect together and already have a groove for the contact wire custom roadway routeings and integrating curves passing points branches bridges and slip roads can also be implemented just as easily roadways are particularly simple and accurate to design with faller laser-street without foregoing the familiar variety in the design galleries our galleries will guide you without a lot of words illustrating key process steps you will then know how roadways are installed and how to plan the installation of various components faller laser-street

roadway design 5 laser-street – step by step routeing streets first determine the street layout by simply positioning the street sections connecting the sections makes this a breeze all roadway sections have a laser cut groove which will later hold the contact wire attention glue the sections fully to the background curves vehicles swing out just as in real traffic i.e if traffic enters a curve the wire is routed outward the curve sections can be used from both sides so that the same section can be used for right and left curves terrain transitions the street sections are made from 3 mm thick three-layered plywood and are flexible yet very sturdy use small rigid foam blocks to create uneven pavements and terrain transitions installation aids all roadway sections are primed for installing functional elements regardless if it’s a branch-off junction 161677 stop section 161675 parking space 161674 or a sensor 161773 we have provided installation aids for every element

6 roadway design custom roadway design to integrate faller car system into your existing design the so-called sunken method may be right for you use the groove cutter 161669 to customise the routeing of the contact wire and adapt the flow of traffic to local factors preparation our recommendation use rigid foam sheets with a wooden frame for the base frame and use 3 mm thick poplar plywood for streets and other constructions this is the maximum distance a stopping section coil may be from the top of the roadway all functional elements can now be installed directly below the roadway this will also reduce the overall weight of your design make the surface of the roadway as smooth as possible and consider the turning radius of the vehicle to be used in the width longer vehicles require a wider road especially for curves than cars the minimum curve radius should therefore not be less than 150 mm please refer to the following chart for minimum roadway widths roadway widths single two-lane

roadway design 7 finishing and decorating add a final touch to your street before traffic starts moving permanently line the kerbside with guide posts and secure curves with crash barriers the kerbside can easily be created with a little filler and some spreading material set up traffic signs and design ad ditional non-functional streets and areas using various self-adhesive films from our design line create the perfect illusion of mobility filling and sanding create a smooth roadway and fill any gaps and uneven areas with filler 180500 the street sections form a perfect joint for the filling paste once cured grind the surface with fine grit sandpaper or a scraper so the contact wire still shows through in all areas pavement the asphalt can be added quickly and evenly with the roadway paint 180506 and a narrow paint roller or a brush once dried the non-slip surface texture provides a perfect grip for the tyres on your car system vehicles street markings the outside street boundaries

8 vehicle vehicle and maintenance occasional vehicle maintenance means there’s no stopping your driving pleasure some superglue a pair of tweezers a precision screwdriver and faller’s special oiler 170489 are perfect for your car system tool kit wear items may be ordered through faller’s customer service familiarise yourself with your vehicle 1 powerful skew wound motor with a life of more than 2.000 hours of continuous operation 2 sliding on/off switch for starting and stopping the vehicle 3 extra strong permanent magnet on three-point mounted front axle – will even trace in the tightest of curves 4 the charging socket will recharge drained batteries 5 drive units on the rear axle axle shaft worm gear and driving worm 6 a reed sensor will halt vehicles at stop sections e.g bus stops traffic lights railway crossings charging batteries use the included charger to recharge the batteries on the faller car system vehicle run the vehicle out of the carton

vehicle 9 please note • the magnet must rest on the road • the screw connection on the slider must show some play figure 1 adjusting the steering slider faller car system vehicles can only be steered optimally if the slider is adjusted correctly the slider is adjusted correctly at the factory however deviations may occur during vehicle operation it will then need to be readjusted the magnetic slider should always glide parallel to the road surface please refer to figure 2 for the ideal setting on small vehicles with folded slider tip the magnetic force can be adjusted by bending it with the tip of a knife this may be required to optimise the steering thrust for example if the steering stops due to the magnet being positioned too high or the slider »sticking« to the road due to the magnet being too close figure 2 changing tyres even model cars require maintenance routine tyre changes are required based on the mileage insufficient tread results in a loss of traction

10 engineering technical accessories – a variety of options we offer various electronic and electromechanical components for implementing your custom traffic plan allowing for countless routeing functions vehicles stopping at red lights and driving on green left yields right rules bus stops car parks and much more let your creative mind run free basic set »components« the car system basic set »components« 161622 includes all important traffic routeing and road making parts for building car system designs traffic-control just connect the traffic-control and you will be able to actuate all car system components such as branch-off junctions stop sections parking spaces and sensors to ensure the timely operation of these functional elements the trafficcontrol is fitted with 15 different programs that can easily be selected via a microswitch depending on the program selected you can make use of preset activation times for the various switching procedures or independently
