Home brew loco in Germany

Want to talk about Sir Arthur Heywood's 15" gauge railways? About modern day minimum gauge lines? Have you found a minimum gauge line you've not seen mentioned on the website? Want directions to one of the railways that is mentioned? Whatever your interest in real minimum gauge lines, post your questions (and answer other modellers' questions) here.

Home brew loco in Germany

The Moseley Trust publishes a quarterly magazine, the latest copy of which has just arrived today. In it was a photo of a home brew loco on the Strube Bahn - so, a quick Google later go and feast your eyes here:

Looks fun, doesn't it?

Hi all,

When I was in Schlanstedt a few years ago I had the chance to ride the "Monsterkuli" It is a great toy with a lot of pullingpower.... It is build on the frames of a large (1,75m2) braked skip and powerded by a Deutz MAH914 engine the engine is coupled to the wheels by schains through a 2 speed FWD/REV gearbox from a Jung EL105..

It would make a great model....

Michael

Hi Michael,

It' amazing how Gnatterboxers so often have a connection with stuff that pops up from other members. Great photos.

Cheers,
