Here is my 8-wide version of the BR64. I modelled it after the actual lok numbered: 064-019-3. Hence no hole in the water tank above the first driver. This helped a lot: the 9V battery is hidden at that place... I'll post the link to the brickshel folder once it is made public. I will also provide an ldr file for a model almost like the one I present (I made many alterations while building it)

I've seen the inner 9 volts battery and the power button, I use the same system with my locomotives  :thumbup:

Hey Stengel, how does the flanged wheel spacing on your GREAT BR64 like standard lego curves and switches?

I haven't found any problems with the spacing. I had to slightly modify the front and back trucks to prevent them from jumping track.

Good question. There is some friction due to the flanges, therefore causing a slowdown in curves.
