Was at our usual friday gathering at our Maerkliners loft and one chap brought along with him another one of his onetime series insider edition loco.

To be honest its the first time I have seen anything like it.







Says its not steam but kind of a diesel. The wheel arangement is exactly a Br 78. Here is a photo of it stripped down :



Anyone like to comment on it ? ME 26-06 ?

Hi Baykal,

the engine features an air compressor, which is driven by a diesel motor. The pressurized air is then passed on to the cylinders (instead of steam), where it "conventionally" passes the power on to the drivewheels.


I could try to do some more research if you´re interested. Those wacky Germans...


EDIT: I got myself a scanner (HP 5500c... even managed to install it!), so I could post some pics (if I find them) from my books and magazines! Wheee!!!!

An odd looking brute to say the least....

But I find myself strangely attracted to it. As an aside I seem to recall that the British GT3 gas turbine project used a standard class 4 frames and wheels etc.
