Does anyone have copies of LGB Depesche (or Depesche Index) for 2000 to 2005?

Not so much a "wanted" item as a "help wanted" item.

I've seen a reference in a German magazine to an article in LGB Depesche about the (full size) HF130 locomotive that LGB subsequently launched (in October 2005?) in model form as 20590 and 21590 (and other variants later).

That reference (using google translate) was "(the model built by) my father was based on an old plan in the LGB Depesche from the small, originally 2-axle LGB diesel locomotive ". As I now own the largely scratch-built locomotive referred to, I'm curious to know whether the article in Depesche was written by the model's creator, or whether it simply served to inspire him to build it.

I would be greatly obliged if anyone who has a set of Depesche magazines covering that period (say 2000-2004 - issues 100 to 119), or even an index to those issues, could tell me precisely which issue the article in question was in. Once I know which issue it was in, I can try to find a way to obtain a copy!

Here's hoping!

All the best

My 'Google Feu' is not good, but there would appear to have been a 'Depesche Index' for 112-115?

Grootspur did have one, but the link is now dead.


I wonder if any of the libraries would have one?

Possibly not??


Have not trawled these breadcrumbs..

Thanks, PhilP

. . . but it has led me to a site with lots of high resolution front covers, including this one . . .

1568135571618.png


. . . which is issue 122 . . . but as this is Autumn 2005, it might be about the release of models 20590 and 21590 rather than the one I'm looking for. Does anyone have a copy to confirm or otherwise?

Maybe the release was covered (belatedly?) in issue 124 (Spring 2006 - with a picture of a HF130 on the cover) . . .

It's frustrating that that site seems to "have a gap" between issues 75 and 122 - the very period within which the issue I'm interested in, is likely to be in.

The search goes on!

All the best

Hello David,

Did you have an answer on the subject? I have both issues 122 and 124. Nothing about the HF 130 in 124 but well in 122. I can scan it for you if you're still interested.

Thank you for the offer. Yes please!

However, that article will be about the issue of HF130 models factory-built by LGB. It might hold a clue to what I'm really after, which is an earlier (much earlier?) issue of Depesche that includes an article written by Dr. Hans-Jörg Windberg (or maybe his father) about the construction of a hand-built version of this locomotive (albeit using some LGB parts). I now own that loco, and am interested to learn everything I can about it.

Best wishes

David

Oops! With the passage of time, my memory has let me down.

Rather than being an article in Depesche "written by Dr. Hans-Jörg Windberg (or maybe his father)", what I'm looking for is the issue that showed how to build a HF130 look-alike from "an old plan in the LGB Depesche from the small, originally 2-axle LGB diesel locomotive (2090)" that prompted Dr. Hans-Jörg Windberg's father to build the model that I now own.

I'm still hoping that someone has a copy of the Depesche Index 1-79 (or maybe a later one), can find the article in question, and tell me the issue number.

Cheers

David

Sorry just looked my first one was 120! Have some of the American issues perhaps around that time but is it likely that the articles would be both sides of the Pond?

When I had my model railway shop, I had several books from Slezak, an Austrian publisher. The following is one of those and I found it on Amazon, maybe you should give it a try. Here is the link

ÖBB-Schmalspurlokomotiven: Dampf, Elektro, Diesel (Eisenbahn-Sammelheft) (German Edition): Giesl-Gieslingen, Adolph: 9783900134594: Amazon.com: Books

I hope this can help. I had a look through the other Depesche, but I start with issue 105. Give me some time to scan the article mentionned and I'll send it to you.

Looking further on the internet, I also found the following, which is widely cheaper than the ones on Amazon.

Giesl Gieslingen Adolph - AbeBooks

and, if you're living in the UK, you can save on the shipping.

Well looking for something else I think I have found what you are looking for 02/2006 (Issue 125) could be the one. There is an article about 399-101 in it. There is also a pic of the 2 axle inside frame variant. Strangely this is the issue that has an interesting article on Auto Operation using EPL which is why I bought it in the first place. Let me know if you do not get a copy and I will see what I can do.

EDIT, have found issues 113 (which has index for 108-112), 116,118,119 as well but not sure if I can find it in the index with my lack of German. If you had the article name and authors name that may help. Then at least we could say where it is not which should help your hunt a little.

I made a search about Dr Windberg, but all I found was about a H0 layout featuring a railway line in Germany: Die Lübeck Büchener Eisenbahn.

However I scanned the article in issue 122 and another one in issue 125 but the files are too heavy to attach them. Maybe you can give me your email address by pm.
