  1. Dear trainheads, It’ s been a very long time since my last steam locomotive ... But now, after tinkering with the design for almost two years, I’m very proud to present my 1/32.5 (gauge 1) model of my all-time favourite engine, the utterly handsome Swedish Litt. (=Class) S1 2-6-4T. For those who are interested, a few words about these locomotives first: My model is held in exact 1/32.5 scale. It consists of approx. 2,400 parts and weighs around 1.4 kg. The locomotive is driven by two vertically-mounted PF-L motors, which are directly connected to the 2nd and 3. coupled axle; the 1st coupled axle is driven by the rods. A BuWizz 2.0 is used for power supply and remote control. Lighting equipment (directional headlights and cab light) is from Brickstuff, while the wheels were purchased from BBB as usual. The rods and valve gear parts are 3D printed elements of my own design. But let the pictures speak for themselves now: Two two-cylinder beauties “Made in Trollhättan” … The coal bunker is detachable and gives access to the electronics. With the coal bunker detached, we can get a glimpse inside the cab: The main frame is as realistic as possible, with all the prototypical cutouts. The leaf springs are connected by realistically pivoted compensating levers (a bit crazy, I know). The leading truck and the rear bogie are built using a combination of liftarms and studded parts. The bogie is laterally slidable and with off-centre pivot pin. This enables the model to negotiate LGB R3 curves (1,200 mm radius) despite having flanges on all wheels. Road numbers and builder’s plates are printed on self-adhesive gold foil: As an extra gimmick, the model has a synchronised sound generator from Mobatron in Switzerland. It works with a a tiny optical sensor and a reflector disc on the 1st coupled axle, which triggers 4 exhaust blasts per wheel revolution. See and hear in these function test videos: And here she is with the entire train: Scandinavian nights are long and dark, so there need to be decent lights on the train… The freight car and 2nd class coach are improved older models, while two slghtly different 3rd class coaches were built from scratch. As usual, I’ll make an on-track video of the whole train soon. High-resolution images and many pictures from the WiP phase can be found in my Flickr album. Thanks for stopping by! Kind regards, Sven EDIT: Video now online!
  2. Hi all, For the video I’ve yet to make featuring my Swedish Litt. S1 locomotive, I felt some background decoration was needed. So I chose to build a Swedish vintage truck in 1/33 scale: a Scania-Vabis 355, one of the first cab-over-engine trucks (though not a true one, as the engine remained directly behind the front axle and the driver had to squeeze in beside/behind it). Some parts of the model are a bit fragile, so I didn’t want to turn it over after completion. A render image has to suffice to show the bottom side … Thanks for your interest! Best regards, Sven
  3. Dear fellow AFOLs, it’s been quite a long time since my last MOC, but finally, I am proud to present another one. And I dare say that the waiting was quite worth it… But let’s take one thing at a time: I’ve always loved Swedish steam locomotives for their clean, elegant lines, their beautiful colour scheme and those massive snowploughs ; so when the Mallet project I announced a few months ago had failed, I thought it was time for an old Scandinavian lady in 1/33 scale – the TGOJ M3a No. 104. The prototype is a three-cylinder 0-8-2 tank engine (did I mention that I love tank engines, too?). Four of these locomotives were built between 1928 and 1930 by Nydqvist & Holm AB (NOHAB) in Trollhättan, Sweden, and delivered to Frövi-Ludvika railway, where they were classified as Litt. M3a, nos. 101–104. From 1931 on, the engines were operated by TGOJ (Trafikaktiebolaget Grängesberg–Oxelösunds Järnvägar). They were used primarily in freight service, e.g. for hauling ore trains to the harbours on the Baltic Sea. While engines 102–104 were scrapped in 1975, no. 101 is preserved at the railway museum in Grängesberg. The model consists of ca. 2100 parts and weighs about 1.4 kg. It features a working reproduction of the inner cylinder and a realistic frame with prototypic cutouts, inside-mounted equalizing beams, and brakes. The cab interior is as detailed as possible, given that the battery box is placed inside the cab. Two L-motors, controlled via one IR receiver (V2), are working directly on the fourth axle; the first to third axles are driven by the side rods. All the rods were made to measure by zephyr1934 (and I really want to thank him for this great job!), while the wheels are BBB XL and Medium ones. Enough said, here are the pictures: The frame during construction, showing the prototypical inclination (approx. 6,7°) of the middle cylinder, which allows the connecting rod to clear the first axle: Two more views of the frame. You can see the equalizing beam between the first and second axle as well as the one between the third and fourth: The motors are situated in the side tanks and in the lower half of the boiler: A longitudinal section (render). The red boat weight brick improves weight distribution: Some cab side detail. Note the small windshield glass between the windows: Self-made stickers: The rear windows are barred, to prevent them from being damaged while taking coal: The roof is detachable for easy access to the on/off switch and the charging socket. You can also see the rudimentary cab interior: Finally, here’s a video, showing the locomotive in action. Despite its long wheelbase, the model is able to negotiate LGB R3 curves and switches, as the trailing axle (Bissell type) swings out both radially and laterally (Note: The brakes between third and fourth axle are for display only. In operation, they have to be removed; otherwise, they rub against the fourth axle’s flange and make a terrible noise). As usual, you will find larger versions of the pictures in my Bricksafe folder. You can also download the LXF there. Thanks for your kind interest! Best wishes, Sven Edit: New videos here!
  4. This is my latest designed train. It depicts the first Swedish double-decker diesel train Y3 or more commonly called "the Camel". It was in service between 1966 and 1990.

    Swedish Cottage

    A typical Swedish cottage that I made for a competition over at Swebrick. Dark red cottages with white corners is as traditional as it gets over here :) Was very frustrating to work in such a small space, but happy with how it turned out in the end. Hope you like it
  6. Hello AFOLs, as promised, here’s the passenger coach for my Swedish museum train (if you don’t remember, here are links to the locomotive and the freight wagon). There is no specific prototype for this MOC; instead, I tried to reproduce the characteristic features of several types of wooden pre-WWII Scandinavian coaches. The wagon is lettered as no. 3 of JMJ, a fictional museum railway, which (by mere chance, of course ) uses the same abbrevation as the last Swedish line that operated steam locomotives in regular service. As with my previous wagon models, the roof is detachable, so you can see the fully detailed interior: Tasteful two-tone wall panelling, and a toilet paper roll in the lavatory compartment (see below). The curtains were inspired by those on marbleman’s Orient Express coaches. A shot of the interior during construction: The lavatory compartment, of course equipped with a toilet brush… … as well as a washbasin, a towel roll and a mirror. Some bogie detail, showing the primary (coil springs) and secondary (leaf spring) suspension and the axle-driven generator for the car’s electrical supply: With just over 2100 pieces and a length of 62 studs plus buffers, this is my largest MOC so far. One bench alone consists of 30 parts: I also designed a first-class version of this coach, with only six windows per side and more generous seat spacing; however, due to the lack of time and space, I chose to build only the second-class car (for now, that is). A video of my TGOJ M3a pulling the museum train will follow as soon as there’s sufficient sunlight to shoot it – at the moment, it’s all dark grey here (some of the photos were taken with exposure times > 1 sec)... As always, you will find additional images and larger versions of the photos in my Bricksafe folder. Thanks for stopping by! Best regards, Sven Edit: Videos now available here!
