although I really like your yellow one, I must congrat you for the other one, as I find it one of the nicest train piece ever made, I have been wanting this model for years, the santa fee is also one of my favs, and one guy did a white one, that eclipsed all in one stroke, it is very sleek, modern, and round, but, holds no figs, wich is crucial for stories and stop motions [what I do] now, I made my own, Im mostly a car guy, but, trains kind of grow on me, as planes do too.
Hey guys, thank you all for the great comments! I don´t even know how many years ago I built this engine. I agree with you: my next trains should be 8-wide - so everything stays in scale. Cars: 4-5 studs wide, trucks: 6-7 studs wide (8-wide where the tanks are located), trains: 8 wide. I´m gonna try the 8-wide technique on future train models - promise!
What Patrick L. Said-
Rear Steffen, your heavy Diesels reminds me a little of Bi-level. (however has the 22 axles: -)) Nevertheless very well and above all simply. Perhaps you make those times a little larger.: -) Are of eight fan thanks first times for your comments, makes happy me, if my courses please you. Greetings from Datteln
Very good train, of coarse!
I like it

This is great! I never turned out to check your Trains folder, but when I saw this Locomotive, I got impressed. I love its shape and color scheme. I always liked 9v engines, altought i prefer the desing of 12v sets. Furthermore, when I was born the 12v had already gone...
Looks preety realistic and smooth. Cheers, Bruno
Deine schwere Diesel erinnert mich ein wenig an eine Bi-Level.(allerdings hat die 22 Achsen:-))
Trotzdem sehr gut und vor allem schlicht.Vielleicht machst Du die ja mal ein wenig grösser.:-)Bin ja 8er Fan.Danke erstmal für deine Kommentare,freut mich,wenn Dir meine Züge gefallen.
