I would like to share some photos of a locomotive I built a few years ago originally for the Flickr Lego Trains MOC's 2-4-0 competition, since then the locomotive has gone through a number of progressive rebuilds to the state she is in today, the design is a freelanced build and is inspired by a number of designs used by a variety of German railways from around the 1880s, the main influence is from the Saxon IIIB http://www.worldrail.../Saxon/IIIb.jpg and the Wurttemberg AC http://www.worldrail...ttemberg/Ac.jpg class locomotives.
Here is the Backstory about the locomotive
Built in 1885 the 19 Class was the last 2-4-0 type to be built for the Kaiserlich Legodtenstein Staatsbahnen, a total of 8 were built of which 194 is the last example left. The class were used on express services till 1904 with the introduction of the 85 Class 4-4-2 Atlantics, from then on they were employed as a mixed traffic loco on branchline services until the 1950s when the scrapping of the steam fleet began.
