Hello all, here is a new locomotive moc from me: one of the locomotives from the since replaced cog railway part of the ritten railway. first some history about the prototype. the prototype was used on the ritten railway in italy. they needed to connect oberbozen with bozen because tourism was becomming an increasingly important factor and a railway was thus built to bring tourists up the mountains. the first section (is now deconstructed) was similar to a tramway in its design. the second section, the one connecting the upper part with the lower part was built very steeply and thus required the use of locomotives to push the railcars used on the flat lower and upper sections up the hill. the locomotives themselves had two motors with 150HP each and carried the railcars up the hill at about 7kph. the second and first sections where in use until 1966 at which point they where replaced by an aerial tramway which since itself was replaced by a more modern gondola. the remnants of the former second steep section can still be seen: here is the prototype: enough about the prototype here is the model: if you want to know more about how the protoype was restored: https://www.tmb.at/fahrzeuge/lokomotivserie-1-3-4-rb edit: now added some details: hope you like it!
