Hello friends, My 2nd locomotive here. The last for now. Time for some roadgoing stuff again. The German Class 41 steam locomotives were standard train engines operated by the Deutsche Reichsbahn (DRB) and built from 1937–1941. They were primarely designed to haul freight. A lot of the freight consisted of cattle, and therefore it had the nickname: Ochsenlok (cattle locomotive). A total of 366 were built by a number of manufacturers according to standardized specification. The one I built is nr. 41-241. It was manufactured by Borsig (AEG) from Hennigsdorf, Germany. It is now in possesion of the Dutch VSM and currently converted from an oil rebuilt back to coal again. This particular engine is called “Polarstern” as it crossed the polarcircle on a trip in Norway during the nineties. The engine is 23,905 mm (78 ft 5 in) in length (including tender). It has a service weight of just over 101 tons. The power is around 1870 hp, capable of bringing the engine upto 90 km/h (56 mph) topspeed. My Lego version is scaled 1:38 to correct Lego gauge. It is powered by two PF XL engines, and can be controlled by Lego’s PF IR Speed Remote Control Unit. Its all genuine Lego,except the valvetrain and wheels. The valvetrain is designed by myself and Jaap Kroon (http://www.jaaptechnic.com/), who 3D printed them in marvelous red and grey for me. This engine will be on display in October at the Legoworld event in Utrecht, Netherlands, and will be riding together with the UP Big Boy. Hope you like it!
