Hey ho,

at my playground i often use the train to transport something, smal Tanks ore other stuff.

Because of space, i use 45mm LGB tracks.
Alos i converte them to RC.
Steamtrain needs a battery waggon, the diesel is in front big enougth for an smal lipo.

But...the locos are mutch to smal, so i make the decision to take the tracks like smal "Grubenbahn" tracks.

So i make 2 locos, both based an LGB.
A smal steam train, and a diesel one.

The steam train original:

My conversion, just a bitt higher, that 1:16 scale people can use it :-)

That's extraordinary! Soon Burt Lancaster will be working his devilment to blow up the track, as in "The Train."

Ausgezeichnet! Wird bald Burt Lancaster seine Teufelei machen, so wie im "The Train."
