Hello everyone, the European journey is now complete! I wanted to conclude with Denmark: the nation that has created Lego toys ...paying tribute with the magnificent DSB Nohab! The hardest part was making the three-axle trolleys, but searching on the net I've never found anything I liked. I know that the bogie I made will disappoint the purists but in its simplicity this is what everyone would want! To make it, I've used a Dremel and I'm quite satisfied with the result. To power the locomotive, I have perhaps invented a Columbs' egg: using a normal train motor, vertically oriented, inside the body of the locomotive. To satisfy the overall dimensions I've realized this machine in 7 studs. As always the model has a switch to turn on the front and back lights; the power switch is behind the windscreen and the receiver is mounted upside down under the main body. Have fun with photos... For the next few months, after some interludes with cars from Spain and Italy, the latest creations will be from Germany and only Germany! After that my trains collection will be DEFINITIVELY completed ... stay tuned!
dtomsen posted a topic in LEGO Train TechPresenting another Danish shunter...DSB Litra MH 322 History: The Danish State Railways (DSB) diesel shunter Litra MH were built in great numbers by Frichs in Denmark from the year 1960 to 1965. In all 120 shunters were built to replace the steam shunters still being used. The shunters were repainted in the 80's to black and red from the original dark green. The last shunter was decommissioned in 2001. ©Hans Stückler My model: Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 455 Motortype: PF Model built: 2012-14 The stickers are homemade with self-adhesive labels printed by a copy shop and then cut by myself to fit. The upper part is primarily constructed with plates and tiles, in general only a few standard bricks are used in the construction. The model is run by PF and requires one 9v battery connected by custom adapter to the Power Functions M-Motor. Pull and speed are acceptable. The shunter pulling a white Litra Gs wagon.
Presenting another Danish shunter... The Danish State Railways (DSB) first radio controllable shunter Litra MK was built in Germany by Siemens from the year 1996 to 1998. 25 were built in all. All but one shunter were transferred to DSB subsidiary Railion in 2001 and DB Schenker Rail in 2007. My LEGO model is my second attempt at the Litra MK and is the DSB Gods version. Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 410 Motortype: PF Model built: 2013-14 The stickers are homemade again. Lots of somewhat fragile greebles. No room for the driver in the cap Only PF can be used to run the model and requires one 9v battery connected by custom adapter to the Power Functions M-Motor. Pull and speed are acceptable.
Well, presenting another Köf...with wagons DSB Litra Køf The Danish State Railways (DSB) shunter Køf was the Danish built version by Frichs of the legendary German Köf (Kleinlokomotive, Öl-antrieb durch dieselmotor, kraftübertragung mit Flüssigkeitbetriebe). 40 Køf shunters were built from the year 1966 to 1969 and a few are still in service today. Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 17 bricks Width: 8 bricks Bricks: 270 Motortype: 9v or PF Model built: 2012 Easy access to the IR Receiver: Either 9v or PF can be used to run the model but PF requires the PF train motor to be connected to the older 9v battery box by extension wire in a very tight fit with little room to spare. DSB Litra Gs (I) Danish State Railways (DSB) classic 2-axle covered wagons with sliding doors Litra Gs (I) were built in Denmark by Scandia in huge numbers (2.871) from the year 1953-1964. A few are still used today Scale: 1:50 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 518 Model built: 2013 The doors can be opened though not by sliding: Distance between the fixed wheels are 12 bricks and goes through points and curves ok but with some resistance: Access through the roof: DSB Gs (I) wagons pushed by DSB Køf:
