[MOC] "Feldbahn" System - Toy Train

Recommended Posts

Hi all, in these days I was taking a look to old toys - and I met again the Egger-Bahn system, which was an H0e Feldbahn/Decauville set of small locomotives and rolling stock.

Starting from that, I tried to design something very modular and easy to build. I based all the rolling stock on 9v motors and rails, since I've a good quantity of these which I don't use often.

Locomotives are 10 studs wide, while wagons are 8-wide.

There are three different locomotives for the moment, the first one is pretty strange - It basically has a wooden box in the front of the cabin - I sincerely do not know what that "box" can be used for, since the motor is there and should produce a lot of heat :iamded_lol:. Apart these "technical" considerations, it is copied from the Egger-Bahn locomotive I found on the catalogs of the 60's :wub_drool: 

The second green locomotive (the one with red chassis) is also taken from the Egger-Bahn catalog - it should be based on a Gmeinder real locomotive. The third locomotive (red one) is a bit more modern in design. It is not a reproduction of a real model - it is a mix of many small locomotives I saw during some internet surfing.

I thought some "people" could be a nice addition - therefore I included some "Miniland" styled figures. They fit in the cabins and are quite proportioned to the whole set.

There's some room inside the locomotives hood and cabins, so the 9v motor could be replaced by a more modern PuP system.

I hope you like it!

Wonderful! It's nice to see the 9v system getting some love!

Thank you!!! :laugh:

In this case the 9v system is nice, since it is very similar to DC H0/H0e, having in common the powered rails -  I thought it was more faithful to the original idea :classic:

I made some modifications to the wagons chassis, from a totally square to a more rounded shape, which is more realistic. I changed also the wheels of the wagons, using technic parts and the wheels with axlehole (making the whole wagon cheaper to build) :wink:

I recreated all the renderings of my previous posts, after this and some other corrections.

In the picture above,I prepared a rendering of a tourists train , with open and covered wagons, plus a rework of the "wooden box" locomotive.

The black color, the lack of the two front headlights and a bigger headlight on the roof makes it more similar to the first version of the  Egger-Bahn No.4 locomotive, also called "Contractors Locomotive".

All cleaned up and restored, is ready for a "special train" in the woods :excited:

Very nice! How do you think it would look with homemaker figures?

Thanks!!! I think it would be...more or less...this way! :laugh_hard::laugh_hard::laugh_hard:

The locomotive is the green one - retrograded to the late 70s :laugh:. The minifig is a bit zombie-ish, but I could not figure how to turn its arms up/down!! *huh*

Ciao! :wink:

Superb .... I like the style of these mini wagons. :wub:

The characters remember me those from Legoland


Another great work and a front page once again! :thumbup:

Thanks Emanuele!!! For the minifigures I reproduced a "Miniland" one I've on one Lego Book  - they fit fine, and I think they'll work with my 1:22,5 scale models too :laugh:

Ciao!

Interesting remake. I like the scale and the figures add to the scenes.

Thanks! I added them to make some scenery around the trains, but now I've began to like them a lot...they're addictive to design!!! :wub:
