Thanks for your comments!!
They really look good in the green/black livery, much better than with the black one, IMHO.
The G8.1 is a great runner, waiting for some cars to come to see the full pulling power.
The P8 runs good too. but she has some problems to do the ramp with 5 compartment wagons, also some problems with R1 curves, she needs at least 510mm according to the catalog, but is ok, also i had a spare smoke unit so, she is smoking fine now.
Regards

That's the minimum radius with piston rod protection tubes (actually only 500 mm given in the instructions leaflets), without those tubes the minimum radius is 360 mm. But the new pr P 8 is not really a strong puller and sensitive to abrupt changes in gradient.

I like those Prussian steamers - but I normally buy black/red in era III livery.

Beautiful locos, Francisco! ThumpUp

I have the P8 in those colours, but it's the old tooling. There's no comparison. Yours is much nicer! (Even if the pulling power is reduced...)

Well, i couldn´t wait for the freight sets to arrive, so i grab some museum wagons and others and test the pulling power of the G8.1, i was more than satisfied, just great!


Also i remember a little one that was in her box for a long time ago, a BR80 030, digitized with a 60760 kit, she was always a nice puller

Hi everybody, with the summer coming on quicklyand days getting longer there has not been much time for trains with a lot of work to do in the garden and plenty of outdoors to do around here, but today has arrived a proper loco to pull my recently bought Hamburg-Berlin express, at the end it was the streamlined BR05, item 37050, a very nice loco that runs very well on my ols M track...

Hello, i think my 37938 will not make it fro xmas, she only arrived yesterday at Santiago, but the coaches for her, from a Fleischmann 1885 arrived yesterday, the loco also looks nice, but since she is analog i was not able to test it yet. Anyway i gave them a run pulled by a Fleischmann S6, with no problems at all, i just had to change the couplers for marklin ones since the Fleischmann ones sometimes hit the third rail in turnouts. Now im still waiting for that P10 to come.......i think i checked the mail site at least twice a day...Crying

Hi, yes, im very happy with the coaches indeed...........i the task of getting pickup shoes for them now, not easy really
But they are very well detailed and run very nice on the old M track.
The second loco is a Marklin T12 who arrives a couple of weeks ago
And Merry Xmas for all you and your families!

Very nice coaches. Does Fleischmann offer light sets for them?

Several companies offer two-pole current conducting couplers (requires modification of the loco or a Märklin coach with pickup in the consist).

Hi Tom, yes, according to the set's data sheet Fleiscmann 1458 is the proper pickup shoe for the coaches, only one on ebay right now and doesnt ship to Chile, it seems that Reynauld's have them in stock, but, i have no information if the kit comes with ground springs or not, i think that could be not difficult to use marklin ones. As for the current conducting couplers i think i will search them, to use only one pickup shoe for the consist. And for lightning itself, ESU led strips can do the job.....

37938 is here! Really a great locomotive, i must admit i was a little worried since she wont register with the CS2 nor MS2 nor MS1, but at last it was just that the decoder was loose from the board......ufffffffffffff.
She runs great and pulls the Fleischmann KPEV consist nicely.

Hi, some little things arrived in the past days, current conducting close couplers and some smoke generators, so i have mounted the couplers in some old sets equiped with the old CC couplers and fit a smoke generator on the 37938.

Firts the proof of fire for that wonderful loco, will she be able to pull the heavy Kaiser Wilhelm II set?


With the smoke unit fitted


And pulling down the Kaiser Wilhelm and the Rheingold sets, wich had become far more playable with the new couplers BigGrin

Hey Francisco, thanks for showing the progress of all this. Its great to see it developing.
Did you get Marklin couplers? Or did you choose a different brand?

Well, i was a little depressed with my dead CS2 ( she has arrived today at Goeppingen, lets see....Huh ) but i have finally finished the mountinf of the old signals and the braking module, they are on the wrong side of the track, to mount them on the right side would have meant to drill in the plywood and it was a too dirty task to do, i like to mount them below the base board, if i make scenery sometime it is easy to hide the solenoids, any way i made a couple of videos, with my BR23 and my son's ICE2.
