Hi folks, I just realized, that I posted the wrong video link in the last steam donkey posting. I just replace by the correct video of the steam engine rebuilt.


[CFF] New loco is almost done

Posted by Gerd on Thursday, 4 November 2021 with 2 Comments

Hi folks,

in the past weeks, I didn’t find any time for model railroading or to write new blog posts. So it’s time to bring some update today.

I’ll start with the cab interior and boiler back-head detail. I added some small cabinets and a wooden floor. The rear of the cab is home of fuel bunker and the hand brake. Close to the end of the project, I decided to model closed doors on the sides, as even on a Romanian forestry railroad, locos always operated with closed doors for safety reasons.

And there she is, mostly done and ready for painting. Small parts as window glasses and some levers and pipes are missing, but those will be added after painting. I’m also happy with the total weight, which will give enough pulling power to the loco.

Finally, where are some photos beside my other models. The new one blends in very nicely, even if not painted and weathered yet.

Next step is to take the loco apart into subassemblies for painting. Afterwards, the loco will get finally assembled.

Cheers, Gerd
