I already have the 37116 version; I can't afford a second one. I have a couple of different Roco units in wishlists around the traps.

QUOTE (Babz)I Favour the Roco one as my Budget for anymore big red and Blacks has run out. Sadly I have Plenty of running stock. Babz
Sounds familiar. I have plenty of running stock now also, strangely, not sad about this at all.
This is also the first year where I have only bought on pre-orders. Most were Brawa freight cars, so that probably consumed the cost of one loco anyway...

I would like to ask is this Locomotive okay to pull the 1928 coaches. Thank you in Advance. Babs

Hi Babz,
I really think that the Roco loco you picture is from the pre-1914 era, so not quite exact for the blue coaches, although it would 'do' from a distance.
If you really want a green one, I would definitely say that the Fleischmann loco 411902 would be a better fit if you want it exact. This loco is one of series 'k', delivered in November/December 1923. Also it is a model of loco 3687 (later 18 486) and after delivery it was allocated directly to Nuremberg Hbf so would almost certainly have pulled your train at some stage (I would bet my house on it). Moreover, the Fleischmann loco is finished in the in the running condition from 1924 or so, so really exact - the Trix coaches they say are 1924-1928.
This would be a really cute match.
Hope this helps.

Hello,
For the timeline 1922-1924, I would think that this loco (S3/6?) should have the word 'BAYERN' on the tender instead.
Generally speaking, a DRG black and red from any of the express classes BR01-BR19 would be suitable; with the bigger 231 pacifics being more so.
So, for me, the Roco 18.4 shown earlier would be the one to go with.
You might like to do some research on the Gruppenverwaltung Bayern. If the period 1919-1925 wasn't confusing already, GVB just throws another spanner into the works.

A purchase from earlier this year, Brawa's 47822 (2014 issue).

Brawa 47817. Whilst I got it about 6 months ago, it was released a few years back now.

An unplanned purchase, but when Brawa says "50% off"; I say "yes".
I am focussing on smaller car puchases now anyway.

Good Evening 6991 & Adrian Thank you for all the Info, at the time of preordering the Coaches i never gave it a thought to what Engine would pull it, unfortunately Fleischmann 411902 is not available at the Moment I will just have to use the Roco18-4 and maybe the other in the PictureBut after looking through My Inventory i do have Fleischmann 411972 Thank you to you both.



Adrian I really like your Wagons and Brawa Coaches the Brawa articles are really great. I have so far not paid the Full price for Brawa Coaches i am like you i get it while the Iron is Hot. Thank you for sharing.

Hello,
In an effort to control spending, my purchases this year were mostly pre-orders from Brawa. I will dig out the 3 or 4 that I've received already and post them later. Another two are in transit, along with a silent DRG BR94.
With the exception of the 2015 pre-orders, most of my Brawa choices were made on the basis of being discounted. I simply couldn't afford them otherwise.

hello,
Maybe not that model; the one I was thinking of is 411903/411973. This is marked as a DRG loco, not Bayern. So, I'd guess a slightly later timeframe. Still a few around, but not everyone is passing on the discount. I missed the Bayern version; I expect that by the time I get the money, all the DRG versions will be gone also. Normally what happens...

I think the general consensus is that the Roco is perfect for the job.

Thank you Adrian & 6991 for all the help. Best Regards Babs
For the life of me I cannot see the difference between 411902 and 411972, no problem, if you have this loco it is perfect as mentioned above, right engine, right time for the coaches.
I actually have a picture of this loco (3687) hauling a Berlin express in 1925. I also have a photo of a Nuremberg 18.4 hauling the exact Paris-Karlsbad-Prague express near Schnabelwald, close to where the junction to Bayreuth is, just after the Pegnitztal.. However, this photo is 1935 and by this time the new generation of CIWL coaches are making up the train.
As we all discussed above, the Roco loco 18.417 is also good, but 3687 is absolutely perfect.

Cheers

Hello,
The '7' has a sound chip. Otherwise the same, methinks.

Babz - thanks for asking all the questions that I am thinking at the same time. 6991 and Adrian - thanks for all the replies - very interesting (as usual)
This is not a new wagon, but it is my first serious attempt at putting on some 'weathering'... probably amateurish, but I didn't want to go overboard..



Makes me feel as if it's a new wagon anyway...

Or is that 'over-weatherboard'
I was thinking a couple of months back about starting a beer wagon collection of all the beers around me near Munich...

Hello all,
thoroughly enjoying this thread and would like to contribute if/when I can work out how to post photos again....Anyway, think I've sussed it again, so not a recent purchase but slightly unusual, the Trix Adler Anniversary set with a decoder built into the loco. Looks great next to the Big Boy.....
Cheers
Ian
