I had 2 know-alls at an exhibition arguing very loudly if my loco was a Mallett or a Malley. Took great delight in correcting them both.

Here is yet another pic of the 99-6001 at Alexisbad in the snow in the bad old days of East Germany when it was under the Russian Influence. Taken on a very cold 12th February 1981. But boy was I glad I went. There were two mallets out working as well that day.

Just realised there was some discussion regarding the Zeunert/(motor supplied by LGB) cardboard kit for a railcar - the prototype is the Wismar railcar type "Frankfurt" which ran on various lines, one was still in use till not too long ago on Wangerooge (originally from the Bremen-Tarmstedt railway), others used to be in service on the Selters-Hachenburg line..

In one book I was reading recently I saw that several of the German military 0-6-0 diesels ran in the UK as the Britsh army brought some back after the war.
There were a couple of Gmeinder diesels at Longmoor for a good while - reputedly from Peenemunde - 75 cm gauge

The above locos were made into various liveries by LGB, and yes the cargo sprinter did exist. Alyn

you know this is a wonderful thread for me as a yank
while i love trains from around the world-i dont always get to see things like this

that Eilas steam dummy i believe, is the first really good shot ive ever seen-makes the LGB version look quite nice
