Hello Everyone

Here are some Hi Rail Unimogs that I have built for my Legodtenstein Bundes Bahn, the first vehicle is a standard work truck that is used by track gangs for general maintenance work, the second vehicle is fitted with a cherry picker and is used for work on overhead wiring as well as repairs to signals and lighting, the trucks are inspired by the Mercedes Benz 437 series/ U2150 Unimogs.

Here is a version of the OTM Tracker (from RailBricks #6) that I modified.  I made it so the Hi-Rails will tuck up inside the frame of the truck (without dragging).  This allows for the use of the couplers on the front and rear of the truck.

I don't agree, those are way better than the LEGO versions ;) although I like the old 9V version rail vehicles.

-== Classic LEGO trains are the best ==-

Do you need replacement stickers for LEGO (reproductions and customs): ministickers.nl

What then about the LEGuanO?!

I've been a huge fan of all kinds of hi-rail equipment, rail trucks, rail inspection cars, etc. ever since I got this set back in the day, so it's always a pleasure to see something like that. Besides, it's a Unimog - and we all love Unimogs!  :thumbup:
