Thanks Brian & Richard for the encouragement.

Our Gützold Br56 is one of the spoils of Dortmund. I had an eye on it for quite sometime.
What would you get if you squeeze a Br58 ( Rivarossi 58) from both sides? the answer is a 56.

This machine, actually a KPEV G8.2 was used extensively by the TCDD and anybody interested in its history can find more at:

Here she is :

Its fitted with a loksound decoder and runs very smoothly.

The plate numbers 45035 was done by herr Kuswa at:

I have met him personally at Dortmund and have to say he has made a lot of Turkish railroad modellers very happy indeed with his craftmanship on the plates.

This is my first ever steam loco weathering. I would really like to know your honest opinions. Here we go:

Will you be weathering all your other locomotives? I suppose they will look too new next to this one at the roundhouse!

P.S. Any luck finding models of those TCDD hoppers?

Thanks guys for the encouragement.

I had to start from somewhere.

Believe me it wasn't easy. Your brain says , " hey this is a 300 odd euro loco that you are about to mess with" and every stroke of the brush you kinda dwell with this notion.

Anyway I'm glad you liked it.


I have used the set called " Traincolor" from Vallejo. All water based acrylic colors . Its the one at the bottom of the page

plus pastel powders. I highly recommend this Vallejo range of colors.

The TCDD hoppers? No luck at all guess its only confined to TCDD.

Yes, I am planning to weather them all, next in the line is the Roco Br 44.
