Inside an OTT Monorail
#1
I just thought I'd put this here in case anyone needs to see where all the gears go. This is the insides of the 2013 2-car Tokyo Monorail 2000 type which was a limited edition set sold at Plarail Expo and the like, but I think all the OTT (Over-The-Top) monorails will be the same.

The gearbox casing comes apart very easily, just three screws and a (not glued) plastic clip, but as with all these things, it's easy to have all the innards sprayed all over the place. At least there are no loose springs to come pinging out.

Mine has a split gear for which I have just ordered a replacement, the one indicated by the red arrow. It's got 10 teeth, is 6mm long, and 6mm in diameter, and the shaft is 2mm diameter. The ones I found are longer but I don't expect that to be an issue.

Thanks Dr Chris. I imagine that all the other "OTT" Monorails may or may not have a different configuration since they have 3 units but I am not sure. I would suspect that your Monorail will have no problem navigating the rise on your 3D rails as its only two units with a smaller coupling.
