Bricks-on-Rails posted a topic in LEGO Train TechGood evening Community, Today i want to present a small German Steam-locomotive. The DR BR 24 was a passenger locomotive for main use on secondary lines. It was built in the late 20s to 1940. An interesting fact about this locomotive is that many components, such as the boiler, the engine or the cylinders, were identical in construction to those of the DR BR 64. A total of 95 units were built by manufacturers such as Borsig or Krupp. The LEGO model consists of approx. 775 individual parts, it is 48 studs long, 9 studs wide and 12 studs high. It is very easy to motorize with a Power Functions M-Motor, which can be placed under the boiler. The IR receiver is installed in the cabin and the battery box in the tender. There were a lot of different variants, like different smoke deflectors or different tenders. We have decided for the most widely leaded ones with large Wagner wind deflectors and the three-axle tender. The middle axis of the tender can be shifted sideways to allow cornering. Just like the DR E 94 we had exactly this variant on our H0 system at that time. And now have fun looking at the pictures. Criticism welcome.

Bricks-on-Rails posted a topic in LEGO Train TechHey Community, Finally, after a long time beeing absent, we´re back. And we´re here to re-introduce ourselves and to present something new. Some of you may know us from the time before we disappeared. By the way, we were not away we were just calm. Now, since beginning 2019 we´re back and we´re happy to be back again. Enough to us... ... here is the model. The model, that we like to present isn´t actually a new one. It is more like remake of a previous version (history). It´s a railcar, the "De 4/4 or Fe 4/4" of the SBB (Swiss railroad company). The example was used in the late 1920s in swiss. Overall there were 25 units built in different versions. The model is approx 40cm long, 7.8cm wide and about 12cm high. It is possible to motorise it with up to two Power Functions XL-motors. That will power up all four axles at the two boogies. The IR-Transmitter and the battery-pack will take "a seat" in the cabin. One of the two cabins is equipped with a small interior. The doors protrude a little to convey an impression of functionality, but the doors and the roof could not be opened due to the interlaced-design. The roof, with the extentable pantographs, the boogies and the substructure is highly detailed. During my investigation i found three major designs, that´s why it is possible to build the model in these three designs. - dark-green - brown - light-blue Now it´s enough with texting. Here are some 3D-Renderings. More pictures can be found in the flickr-folder.
