Hey everyone! ☺️

So i decided to show my latest work about Trains. 🚂

The original idea came to me almost 1 1/2 Years ago, but i pushed myself just recently to completely overhaul everything and bring it up to my current building standard. My idea was, to build a industrial styled World, with old Factories and Brick buildings. I figured that a few freight wagons were just fitting for the environment.

But as i progressed in my World, i thought that there should also be a Locomotive to pull and shunt the wagons. So i set myself the goal of building a steam engine, because that would be the most fitting engine type for that world. The thing about steam engines is: They have A TON OF STUFF ON THEM a busy look... 🥵

Cab view. (At that point i was fed up with building so much small scale levers and gauges. So i kept it rather simple.)

And there she is!! Locomotive No.: 69.😏 A complete replica of a random Google imagines steam engine! 😊

Next up was remodeling my already present Freight wagons. Because having such a detailed Loco pulling simple boxes would not be up to the task anymore. At that point i also decided to have my world set in the GDR (former East-Germany) in 1986.

So a before and after with my coal wagons:

A before and after with my flatbeds:

And finally a before and after with my boxcars:

(Little history lesson: Instead of having a brakevan or a caboose, German Trains had little elevated sheds on some wagons, were brakemen helped the train to stop. The heavier the train, more brakes were manned.)

So that's all folks! 😋

I hope you enjoyed my work! Thank you for reading and have a good Day! ☺️

 

 

 

Ps: Stay safe around Trains! 😉

Awesome build! Do you come from Eastern Germany?

Thank you very much! 😊 Actually not at all. Im from the middle of Germany. 😋
Just the way of living in the GDR is fascinating to me! The 80s in the GDR are more like the 60s in most other countries.
