Hi everyone,
after a pause of months, the project BR starts again!  :wink:
A new BR sparkles in the sun, this time it's the turn of the small BR 80-039.  :blush:

As usual, I tried to respect the proportions of the original blueprint adding my characteristics lights.  :classic:

Posted Image

The plungers have a movement similar to my previous BR84-009 to make a little bit pleasant watch the locomotive run on the rails.

Have fun watching the show!  :laugh:

Great 0-6-0 LT12V! It's a great looking engine and a wonderful addition to your rail line. The lights are a nice touch, though it's unfortunate TLC doesn't make an amber colored bulb for these old steamers  Posted Image

Cool, looks just like the engine that I took thru the Hartz Mountains on the Brockenbahn one time.  Thanks for sharing!

Very good, a nice example of a smaller steam train and good to see that it pulls all of those coaches without any problems.

It's not pulling the carriages; the motor must be in one of them. There's just no room in the engine.
I like the looks of your BR80, especially the drive-gear. I must really find some time for my own next BR...

Really nice design !
I too was thinking there is not room for a motor.....or am I mistaken ?
If no motor you only turn lights on/off with the switch, right ?

Yes it's right, in this locomotive there's only space for the 9V battery to power the lights!

Nice compact and very realistic tank loco.  I like your cleverly disguised switch in the coal bunker.
Am I correct in assuming that the wheels are Big Ben Bricks' medium drivers?

Yes it's correct, and the blind wheels have o-rings to guarantee the grip when the locomotive is pushed around  :classic:

Though it's a very cute little train, the design also manages to look very powerful somehow. Nice use of lights too!

I too like this engine very much. I've even found details I'll copy for my BR50 (if I ever get it finished).

Holger Mathis has a BR80 design on Flickr with a very clever motor design which you might find interesting. You might eve be able to adapt it to use in yours.

I really like the building in the video that the train runs under! Is that some sort of resupply structure, like for water or coal?

I'd rather say it is a switching tower. The part above the rails being where the control centre is. As far as I can tell, it seems to be that one...

Is the gantry tower from Reinhard Ben Beneke, I think that this tower has the perfect architecture to be with a BR   :laugh:

This is one of my favorite engines. It was the first H0 engine we had when I was a kid.
You did a great job building it in LEGO!

That's a great train. You captured the looks and feel of the original very well.
And very ingenious work on the details.
