German Class 80 Locomotive

By Tamás

The german class 80 locomotives were build between 1927 and 1928 for shunting duties. 38 examples where build and they where mostly used in Cologne and Leipzig. Most of them went out of service in the 1960’s and fond new owners at industrial sites such as Ruhrkohle AG and after that ended up in preservation.

The model is build in scale 1:45 and is based on the 80 036, currently based at the Veluwse Stoomtrein Maatschapij in The Netherlands. I didn’t have motorisation in mind while designing the model, but with a bit of creativity it shouldn’t be hard to instal a circuit cube motor and battery unit in it.

For custom parts, the model uses 24mm M wheels and 3D printed rods.

The following rods are needed to properly build the model:
