Minitrix 2088-LN KPEV Tender Loco BR S10.2 in Green

I just found a mint condition one of these for a very good price, which I had to buy, being a big Minitrix fan.  ;) What do we think of this locomotive? Actual photo of the one I bought.

I don't model continental outline so can't comment on accuracy to prototype, however I find the chassis ideal for use under Langley S15 loco kit bodies to produce an H15, but have to replace the valve gear with that from the Fleischmann 7160/1 which drives to centre drivers not front.

The tender drive is also excellent for SR Urie and Maunsell 8 wheel tenders bashed from BHE N15 tender kits.

This is the end result (needs some coal dust sprinkling on the tender)

Arrived in Houston a couple of days ago. After a bit of normal maintenance she runs very nicely. Very well pleased with this, a Hatton's "Pre Owned" find  :D





Here she is running nicely, and before the "purists" comment my Royal Prussian rolling stock is very limited so the dark green SR coaches are on loan so to speak to Prussian Railways.  :laugh3:
