A six inch gauge model steam engine built by Lucas and Davies for a railroad hobbyist called Mr Percy Leigh in the late 19th century will star in Bonhams' Veteran Motor Cars and Related Automobilia sale on November 5.
All in all 15 engines of this type were built until 1950 and now they run in Dresden, Leipzig, Stuttgart (all Germany) or are exhibited in Austria, Espania, Great Britain and India. Maybe it would be of interest: In times of WWII the two engines from Dresden and that one from Leipzig (after 1945 East Germany and Russian occupying territory) were secretly stored in quarry and the Russian army did not found them. Here as first the guest engine from Leipzig, painted in typical German railway colors black and red, engine no.
Thanks for sharing, I am not particularly a fan of European trains, but those steamers are beautiful, and alive! I have always been somewhat surprised by the smaller size of equipment in Europe verses the United States after 1925. Rob, yes, USA and Europe are two very different worlds in development of the railroads and their equipment. However these small park engines are not a sample for the need in our economy, they stand for a new live in nature and gardening in the twenties of last century and all these small engines were built as amusement on greater garden shows and events on a wider area. Also the park railway of Dresden started with such a short time event in 1950 and after a great success as amusement after a the war with heavy destroying of the city of Dresden the citizens demanded a permanent service of these small railway in our large city park - the Great garden.
The first one of these engines was built in 1961-62 and I was one the builders while my years of apprenticeship as a steam loco worker. The second electric loco built in the eighties of last century with a higher battery capacity. The builder plates of these small engines are the original plates of these locos, not those of prototypes. Model railway track plans, reviews, tips and techniques for creating the best model railway layouts.
For those building a new layout, or following along with our project to build a comparable layout but without the magazine, these are the eight must-have railway buildings to add to the track plan. Some of these (Station, Signal Box and Engine Shed) can be bought as card kits, while there are Skaledale (Hornby) equivalents for all of the buildings, and Peco branded lineside accessories for the rest. For people looking at the headline costs, we estimate about 74 GBP for kit based models, and 140 GBP for ready to plant versions. Metcalfe make a number of card kits that could be used for the station, but the Hornby ready to plant equivalents cost about the same, so might be a good option. For the engine shed, the Metcalfe kit is a double-track one, so instead we suggest the Superquick card model instead. To go with these buildings, there are a number of lineside accessories that are needed to build out the layout.

The basic signal from Hornby (R171) is a cheap option, but Dapol also produce a range of electro-mechanical signals that look more realistic and work well, but are considerably more expensive. Ready to plant coal staithes from Hornby represent great value, but Ratio produce a kit that is both cheaper, and easier to customise. Sadly, Hornby don’t produce a single track level crossing, and the Peco and Dapol ones are both kits that cost about the same amount. Finally, the tunnel portals come in both a card version, from Metcalfe, and ready to plant from Hornby. Your Model Railway Magazine costs 8.95 GBP an issue after the promotional issues (the first 5 are considerably cheaper).
Add to that the track, rolling stock, and everything that you need to build and decorate the layout, and it begins to look somewhat reasonable.
For anyone building Your Model Railway Village, or a layout inspired by this series, the above gives a great alternative list of good quality buildings to get you started! We have the largest print-on-demand fulfillment network in the world with 15 manufacturing centers in five different countries. If you can't find the answers to your question on our FAQ page, please submit a support ticket, and our staff will respond to your question(s) right away. In other case these three engines would have been confiscated and transported to Russia - and we would never again have seen them.
I know they have builders plates on the locomotives but are those not copies of the ones on the prototype locomotives? After wondering why the difference I believe it was due to the population density and area of the given country. Definitively all the products needed never such long ways as yours from producer to customer here in Europe and so all trains were shorter and lighter then in USA. Until WWII these engines were ordered and owned all by a single player and they were lent to different events and did run on temporarily laid track for a short time.
And so our park railway was installed as a permanent entity on a one mile long line with a loop at each end.
I love the steam locos however I have also very special memories on that time and my work on trucks and frame. These both engines are regularly in service on all days of week because the are cheaper in service. After this last shot a violent rain came down from the sky - however all pictures were taken!
On the other hand, the Metcalfe signal box is about half the price of the Hornby equivalent, so it really depends on the look that you are going for; red brick vs.

Hornby also make a good ready made engine shed which looks almost like the one sold as part of the Your Model Railway Village magazine collection.
Hornby make a ready to plant footbridge which may be more than double the cost, but would be a great addition to the layout. The Peco models are more realistic, and therefore more expensive, but Hornby supply a cheaper possibility. Surprisingly, the Hornby ones are cheaper, but we prefer the look of the Metcalfe tunnel portals, and being made from card they are also easier to customise (i.e.
However, it is arguable that the quality of the Hornby, Metcalfe, Dapol and Peco equivalents will look better. Just for comparison Germany is 137,847 square miles, France is 210,026 square miles, and Texas one of 50 states is 268,820 square miles. And remember please, the economy was absolutely destroyed after WWII and with a new start all industrial sectors had to be built up after that time.
In this time I was a young school boy and it was a great pleasure to make a journey to the park railway and riding the train on open cars behind a steam engine - one time in year.
These "lilliputian engines are also not an exact copy of prototype, they are modified and a little bit changed for the specific use on these small gauge. I am thinking there must have been a great deal of care and professional pride lavished on these engines for them to last so long and look so good. These are imitation rail built buffer stops, but a particular favorite alternative is the sleeper build ST-8 from Peco. That sounds like a lot, but we also estimate that, to use ready to plant equivalents for all the buildings would cost around 300 GBP. The steam engine was first described and illustrated in an article about the railway system by Robert Machray in Harmsworth's Magazine (1898), entitled The A?10,000 Toy.

I suspect some things that likely made a difference in longevity of locomotives is the use they were subject to and the loads they had to pull. I suspect the big difference in the locomotives size was due to distance covered, loads pulled, and the fact that during the industrial boom in the United States most of Europe was involved in two world wars being fought on their soil. It is part of a collection of 40 locomotives, previously owned by a private collector, being sold at Bonhams.
