The start of the construction of this VB loco was mentioned some weeks ago in this thread http://forum.gn15.info/viewtopic.php?t=8353

Meanwhile the model nears completion and I might as well give it its own thread.




Image

I added a few detail parts, mainly from OZARK. Changed the chassis to take a Bachmann 0n30 Streetcar drive, built an axuliary waterpump from scratch. Used crossheads and rods from a Fleischmann HO Anna. Plus some new whitemetal axleboxes



Image

The charging plug for the batteries is hidden behind the coal basket.


Image

I left the roof off for the moment, since I still have to do some finetuning
on the Deltang RC receiver in the boiler.

The small passenger car is from a D. Caso Laser Kit (no longer available).
The flatcar is homegrewn with TFS axleboxes and Horby 14mm wheels. The baggage load is mostly from Schomberg Models (CAN)



Image

The Gentlemen is from Heyn Modellbau in Germany. I treated the suitcases simply with darkbrown antique wax, to give them some shadowing.


Have Fun

On / Off Switch plus charging plug in the rear of the driverĀ“s seat:

The transmitter can be used for 12 locomotives, which can be choosen via the bottom knob:

Lots of room for some extra junk and details on the loco.

My transmitter is not for sale at the moment. It was built for me

Yes - I remember that link now. I had a look on the internet and found that cigarette cases will be the right size. Now all I need to find is a suitable design. I really need to punk up my Deltang black box!!!!!

I simply painted the small standard Deltang Blackbox transmitter:

If somebody is asking, I tell them, it is the iceberg warning device from the TITANIC.

Juergen, your super detailing of the engine gives it lots of character. Thanks for sharing the construction photos. And your transmitter is the cat's meow!

Gave the T.A. Yorke loco some Smallbrook Studio wagons to pull.

It is passing the library, built by JL Teffelholm. Part of a modular Gn15 layout.
