Hi all, after seeing the beautiful V60 created by @Asper, I realized that I've never tried to represent it (I started with the V80 and V100). Being the iconic 7760 historically identified a s a V60, I did not pay too much attention to that specific group of locomotives. But it's a nice shunter and has a pretty complex shape, so I wondered if it could be possible to replicate it in 12v-style. The result is pretty similar to the 7760 and to the red little locomotive shown near the car-loader in 7777 book. The front hood starts in 4 wide, then becomes 5-wide to return again to 4-wide. The rear part of the cabin is 5-wide and features low doors (standard train doors were too big). 2x1x2 blue windows are going all around the cabin (no absurdly expensive 3x1x2 windows needed!) I did not mean to make it too complicated, but at least representing the enlarging/restricting body was mandatory to make it different from the 7760. Paint scheme and the headlights were made to elaborate a bit the front and rear parts. Some handrails made with bars could have been nice, but were not existing as parts at the time. I made also the red version with yellow stripes - just to see how it was like. The more I look at it the more I think also the V100 needs some restyling, now! That's all for the moment! Ciao! Davide
Hello, The DB class V60 was built more than 900 times in the 1950/60s and still can be seen on German rails.It's not the first LEGO model of this shunter, and I know many of them, so maybe some things look familiar. I wanted a smaller locomotive for the limited size of the average LEGO train layouts, and in Germany this engine is very popular so I decided to build my own. 3D printed coupling rod are from bricks-on-rails.de and there are some stickers - everything else is LEGO. It's powered by a "WeDo 2.0 Medium" (bricklink name) motor. It took me a while to work out the small offset for the "sliding hood" (?) - it coveres a PU hub, so there is not much space for snotting.
