MOC: Xm2/2 with Catenary Work Wagon

5 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone, Recently I posted about my Catenary Renewal Machine and I thought it would be a nice idea to stay on the topic of overhead wiring repair and show it's workmate the Xm 2/2 Catenary Inspection and Repair Vehicle. This machine is heavily inspired by the Xm 2/2 units of the RhB http://www.railfaneurope.net/pix/ch/narrow_gauge/RhB/work/railcar/xm22_n9916_1.jpg and is also inspired by the 701 Class of the DB http://www.railfaneurope.net/pix/de/work/catenary/701/dbag701a.jpg . I have also added a Catenary Work Wagon that normally travels with the Xm 2/2 carrying spare parts for the catenary as well as cable drums, the idea to make this combination happened when I saw a model of a 701 Class with a work wagon in a Marklin catalogue http://www.eurorailhobbies.com/erh_detail.asp?mn=1&ca=78&sc=All&stock=39971 I immediately thought wow that looks really nice I have to make something like this.

Very nice. The yellow probably works better than the red version in the Marklin catalogue.
