Skoda CHS6 -
« on: March 23, 2017, 06:33:44 pm »
Hi,

I am searching for some N-scale loco that could be reasonambly easy converted to the big electric Skoda CHS6 loco that pulled the finnish passenger trains from the finnish/soviet border from Vainikkala to Viborg and from there to many other parts of USSR.

Here is a picture of this Československo manufactured Skoda CHS6 loco:

First thing that came up in a google search was this Kato model:

Hi,

Can't seem to get pics (legal and my computer) but if you go to DM Toys site, go to manufacturer (top left) Microace.

They have an EH10-13 electric and a DD50-2 diesel which possibly have potential. Obviously the diesel would need pantos but the cab end looks less modern than the Kato.

Hope helps.

Cheers weave.

Thanks for your advices.

I think that the Kato trains front- and back end are more like CHS6. Also the  pantograhs need to be replaced by four double sided and the sill panels need to be extended downwards. Also many other minor details must be changed, but these are quite easily made by 3D-printer.
