Picture three could be made out of converting a BO-BO just need a new body. Picture six is a 0-6-0 tank again a conversion of a LGB 0-6-2 tank would be possible. I will add to this thread after sorting some more pictures. Alyn

Note the pair of tram locos double heading. Pictures curtesy of deschribe-online.de Alyn PS the trolly-bus/Obus in the earlier picture early ones looked very similar to their tram cousins, often called trackless trams. Alyn

GREAT photos, but there are two here that are of interest....
Mole-

What line/railway is the 4th pic with the HF130C with the two goods cars and track in pavement?

The ex MPSB 0-8-0 in the last pic lives about half a day's drive north of here in LaPorte Indiana (home of the large scale company Hartland Locomotive Works), now BTW!

The HF130 is on the Ybbstylbahn. I have plenty of pictures, but need to sort them all out as they are all on cd's and disc drives:impatient: Alyn

When LGB designed their model of the Spremburger 0-4-0 they really used the elastic ruler.
I reckon the Feldbahn loco wheels and wheelbase would have been less wrong as a starting point?

Hi, David, remember that that the Spremberger 0-4-0 was an early introduction to the LGB range (albeit with simple valve gear plus a battery version) and the rubber ruler and stainz wheelbase to use the same motor etc. If any one has more prototype pics please post on this sight to make a good ref / database.
