A classic loco – The Roco 0-6-0 steamer

Posted by Gerd on Friday, 20 June 2014

Many years ago, my love for Hon30 trains started with these little Roco steam locos. But the performance was not so great and at least I quit all my ideas for an Hon30 logging railroad. With the new locos from Minitrains, I started again with my logging railroad…

And than I found a Roco steam loco at eBay wich maxon motor and fly-wheel installed. I just bought her and the loco runs very well, just like a Minitrains model. The loco is still an old design, but I really like her charm for my logging railroad. That’s why I couldn’t resist and bought the loco for my WBE.

I installed DCC and LEDs to the head lights. I used spring contacts to avoid fixed wires between the shell and the drive. It worked out very well. Let’s check how it will be working in a couple of month/years. I repainted the loco to dark green and I’ll add crew and clutter/tools later together with a light weathering…

    Hallo, mich würde interessieren ob die Lampen Konstruktion sich bewährt hat, da ich auch vorhatte die lok zu beleuchten.
