    Trains in 4-Wide

    Here is something different but kinda the same: BBA east german mining locos! these kinda had a dark background though. they where used in mines where uranium was mined for the soviet union and by extension the soviet nuclear weapons. some where also used elsewhere. first up is the oldest design of the bunch: the metallist mining loco. rear view: next up is the b 360 which a further developement of the metallist. rear view: then there is the b660 which is just two front portions of a b360 with the drivers compartment hacked off and enlarged + suspended between two front parts what do you do when you need more power? well you just add more front parts with the el71 which was two bba 660's or two bba el61's (similar to the 660 but based on the older metallist design): and what do you do when this is not enough? well more power is always the answer so just couple two more to it with the el 79 forming this monstrosity: and there was also one with a pantograph the el30: rear view: there was also one which used the bb660's drivers cab suspended it between two el30's with the drivers cab cut off at the top and replaced with pieces of sheet metal. the EL30T (T stood for tandem.) Hope you guys like them even with their kinda dark history.
  2. maybe a supply issue? remember that this is a nice product produced in low volume

    Trains in 4-Wide

    thank you! yes i have to agree it really is very smooth running not only that but it also includes a spring loaded clutch mechanism that prevents the gears/motor from getting damaged incase it stalls. great job brio engineers!

    Here is a video of my small train running: I had ti change the rear coupling to make it swivel so it likes curves better because of the overhang that my design creates because in order to fit a full minifig and not make the loco stupidly tall you have to have the drivers compartment behind the rear axle rather than above it. Edit: here is the loco in detail: i also made an electric version removing the exhaust and adding a pantograph: hope you like the model and the mods i have made to it.

    [MOC] Micro city

    this one kinda reminds me of the waste incineration plant in kopenhagen with its sloped design and the 90 degree turn

    thanks. Ikeas track is compatible with brios even the connectors are. in fact the ikea track is even better because you can remove the connection studs to make a track piece with either two male or two female connections. cant do that with brio ones (or newer ikea ones either!)

    DB DDm 915 class Autotransportwagen - 6 wide

    looks very nice and i find it nice that you built it in 6-wide. 8- wide is basically cheating tbh atleast in my opinion.
