The added steps on the tender is the best modification in my opinion. The piece added to the cow catcher is also a nice touch. That locomotive must have cost only about 2 or 3 dollars if I remember correctly. I still haven't completed the similar ones I have. It should be very easy to add glazing to your cabin, because the depressions at the edges of the windows is a good place for the glue.
grey gondolas are "scientific toys" brand too,
sent by -bbbb with the loco ( with blue and green gondolas )
I reduced Playmobil frames ( width and length ) to fit with gondolas dimensions
Thank you JimmyB
You are right, there are Playmobil RC tracks
For the moment, I do not have permanent railway.
Depending on seasons, evolution of vegetation, I install tracks temporarily in different places in the garden.
I think RC tracks could stay few years under the warm sun of South of France
but I am less confident about stuff.
But I will have permanent railway one day
Like Gordon, I have always liked this loco.
Someone tried to mix its boiler and cabin with Playmobil frame.
He failed, he gave up and sold it on Ebay ( both LGB boiler and cabin with Playmobil frame )
When I saw this, I could not resist and I bought it.
It was not easy but it was the opportunity to get this loco and make it running on RC tracks....
Like many Playmofriends, I have a lot of blue passenger cars.
They are partially broken, their color changed because of the sun....
I did paint some of them in blue , I converted others to restaurant wagon or passenger/luggages van...
and for these 3 wagons, the easier and faster was to try the green color
Nice staging as usual. When a blue train follows a green train, the next should not be indigo or violet (out of respect for Roy G. Biv). I like the wide step under the big door on the last car. The train looks much better than previously. You can use the playmobil 3670 to easily make that train RC without any permanent modifications. But if you are going to push it, you could put dummy motor-blocks in the loco and tender and have another train push it. Your generator is on backwards.
