How does the amusement small train run?

What are the small train type large-scale amusement facilities? And what are their common movement characteristics?

  • Common large-scale amusement facilities small trains are including electric-driven small train and internal combustion engine-driven small train. Their common movement feature is that the vehicles run on the track fixed on the ground.
  • Electric train is a typical product of small train type large amusement facilities. The electric circuit rail provides power to the motor in the carriage through the conductive device, and the transmission device drives the head of the small train to run on the track.The connector is used to connect each carriage to drive the entire train to run.The running speed is not more than 10 km/hr,and there is a brake device. When the small train is approaching the platform, it will slow down and stop at the platform to pick up and drop off passengers under the control of the detection device.
  • Transmission mode: electric motor→transmission device→wheel→small train operation. The structure diagram is shown in Figure 1-15.

What are the characteristics of the structure and movement of the internal combustion engine-driven small train?

  • The internal combustion engine-driven small train is a typical product of large amusement facilities small train. Its power source is internal combustion engine,provided by diesel engine or gasoline engine, etc., equipped with synchronous generator, and then rely on traction motor and mechanical transmission to drive the train. At present, this kind of transmission is generally mostly adopted in simulation train, as this motion form can satisfy the desire to ride the real train. The structure of the internal combustion engine-driven train is similar to that of the electric-driven train. The main difference is that the driving power is an internal combustion engine, the track is not electrified and does not require a conductive device.
