The big sister is a little sister at the same time: As the tender has only five condenser elements, I guess this is a 4-axle tender. :)

Yes that's true, the HO model has only 4 axles under the tender :-)

A cool looking beast! Reminds me that I wanted to look for a grey one.


The BR 52 Kondens version was indeed developed for Russia. But the reason was to increase the distance between water stops, to about 600 km (three to four times from a standard tender). These locos were planned for the vast distances behind Moscow … :doh:

Henschel had delivered a converted locomotive with condensing technology to the Soviet Union, and from this the Russians had copied the design for more condensing locomotives already before the war.

That the exhaust plume was reduced was just a side effect. But really, if you were a fighter pilot looking for a train, you’d simply fly along railway tracks and sooner or later you’d find one, exhaust smoke or not. ::)

Minitrix BR 52 with condensing tender (item 12616). Only just fits on the turntable  :D

this was what I understood about the need for condensing tenders - however i was initially taken with the explanation I copied above - . However you are right about flying along the tracks!

WW1 armoured trains managed the steam problem differently - a chimney extension down to track level. ? effective - I don't think the bullet holes helped!

Good afternoon,

Here is my latest purchase from Kato Models. I picked this up on mail order from DM Toys in Germany. Well worth a visit to this shops website.

Here is Kato Re460 in the TGV Lyria branding.





Best regards,

Jeremy

It seems that Eisenbahnfreunde Kφnigshafen e.V. have been busy! Another arrival this week at the steam museum, and it's a little beauty  :D
A Fleischmann DRG BR70 2-4-0T. I have to say one of the smoothest quietest small steamers I've encountered for a long time. 



The ebay bargains are definitely out there, this one was £55 boxed and barely used.  Current new price (if you can find one) easily upwards of £150, indeed £199 in one shop!

Hi John,

Not ran them yet but my experience with Kato locos has always been very good. Like you say, they run beautifully straight out the box.

Best regards,

Jeremy

Good afternoon,

Another parcel from delivered via DHL arrived today. The absolutely superb LS Models Nightjet carriages. I purchased the Zurich to Hamburg 6 car set and also the 3 car add on set. The detail is insane with even some beautifully modelled interiors all painted too. Very nice indeed. Just need to get a layout built now so I can run them!

If anyone has some exact formations that would be great to know as I've researched youtube and there seems to be some of the swiss branded coaches added in too.

Anyway, here's some photos...










Best regards,

Jeremy

Very nice Jeremy. :thumbsup: Looking at some of those interiors, I had to double check the couplers to confirm I was looking at N gauge models.

These are so great looking models! :beers:

I better not start to buy any of the LS ΦBB coaches as I would then need to have all. :-[


Nightjets usually are formed that the sleepers are grouped toghether, then couchettes, and then the seat coaches.*

* Edit: This is true for the Nightjets I see in Vienna but apparently not for the EN 470 where the sleepers were in the center.

Train formations can be found on the Czech site vagonweb.cz:
https://www.vagonweb.cz/razeni/vlak.php?zeme=DB&kategorie=EN&cislo=470&nazev=nightjet&rok=2017
(2017 was the last year for the EN 470. Formations for 2018 and ’19 can be found under NJ 470.)

Lovely coaches Jeremy.  :thumbsup:
Unfortunately my layout can only cope with the basic 6 coach set + a couple of Swiss internal coaches.

P.S. When you come to run them, if you have any derailment problems on sharper bends, have a close look at the couplings. Some of my couplings had a slight amount of burr on their edges which fouled the underside of the buffers. It was soon cured by scraping with a sharp knife.

The latest addition to the Swiss military train that I have been assembling is this set of two wagons with Leopard 2(Pz87) tank loads from Piko.

I have collected a number of these Slmmps Well wagons since they were first introduced by Piko  about three years ago and up until now they have come loaded with the older Swiss built Pz 68 tanks so I thought is was time to get something a bit more modern. In reality the Pz68’s have long since been retired but in theory my train could be correct for the very early part of the 21st Century.

Skilful driving is required when loading and unloading the tanks especially the larger Leopard 2’s.

The complete train of Slmmps wagons with their PZ87 and Pz68 loads. The Arnold stake-wagon on the rear is loaded with two Roco M113 armoured personnel carriers.
