Concerning the:

1./ LIMA HO, DB (ex - Deutsche Bundesbahn), Epoche IΙΙ, Bauart: WRmüh62, Speisewagen TEE/RHEINGOLD, D.S.G. (Deutsche Shlafwagen & Speisewagen Gesellschaft), blau-beige, bogies MINDEN/DEUTZ (type: MD50) with double generators (Klotzbremse)- one short and one STANDARD long - READY IN P87 WHEELSETS AND BOGIES (FROM ALPHA-TRAINS) BUT MODIFIED, BUT ALSO NEEDS HANDMADE BUFFERPLANKS AND THEIR OPERATIONAL PARTS, CONNECTIONS OF THE EXISTING-PARTS OF THE BRAKE-SYSTEM + INTERIOR LIGHTING.


Test of interior lighting with old 12V 60mA light-bulbs that I have them from 2003. The contacts for accepting interior lighting are ready.

I probably use the ESU either:

- 50700 (255mm) warm-white / and or
- 50702 (255mm) yellow

Technical data:
Supply voltage 4 - 24V = / ~
Constant brightness from 6V
Current consumption:
50700: max. 25mA
50702: max. 35mA
Dimensions 255mm x 7mm

Sprung-buffers ready. Length of whole-buffer fixed to 620mm in prototype (by UIC) = 7.126mm in 1: 87 scale (HO), which means that the length of the buffer-sprung-movement is 105mm in prototype by UIC = 1,207mm in HO.

UPDATE:

Concerning the following locomotives mentioned in earlier posts:
1./ GE (General Electric), DASH-9 44CW / C44-9W (4400HP), Co-Co, diesel-electric, UP (Union Pacific), ATHEARN HO (1995)
2./ KRUPP, KRAUSS MAFFEI, SIEMENS, HENSCHEL, BR (Baureihe / Construction-series): 120.0, Bo-Bo, Electric, DB (ex - Deutsche Bundesbahn), LIMA HO (1991)

They won't be converted to PROTO: 87 - standards, and are only for sale, whoever wants them.


The future locomotives to be converted to P87-standards, will be only greek / hellenic ones:
1./ ADtranz A471-496 (220 class), with NEW ΟΣΕ logo, diesel-electric, Bo-Bo, ΟΣΕ/CH, ALPHA-TRAINS HO - probably
2./ S160, USATC (to be converted to ΣΕΚ-ΟΣΕ Θγ), 2-8-0, either from ROCO HO, Art.Nr. 72150 /and or from DJH HO -probably

as well as probably some European ones, i.e.:
1./ Rh2143, B-B, diesel-hydraulic, ÖBB, ROCO HO - 95%,
2./ Rh2045, B-B, diesel-hydraulic, ÖBB, ROCO HO,
3./ V218, B-B, diesel-hydraulic, DB, ROCO HO,
4./ V221, B-B, diesel-hydraulic, blau/beige, DB, ROCO HO

NOTE. - The "100%" means that I will definetely convert them to PROTO: 87 - standards, and I will use them to my future PROTO: 87 - layout from modules.
- The "probably" means, either I will convert them to PROTO: 87 - standards, and thus use them to my future PROTO: 87 - layout from modules /and or not buy them at all, as I would be satisfied with 2 locomotives for the beginning in my P87 - layout.

The hollow part of the wagon-ends was made flat for adding the tyre wagen-ends (Wagenübergänge).

NOTE. I didn't use polystyrol as I didn't have such as to have a very flat result, but I used hard-paper, as I had it available. I believe that with the cover from the tyres, the differences will not be so visual, as in the prototype the tyres cover in a freat percent these parts.

Concerning the:

2./ DB AG (Deutsche Bahn Aktiengesellschaft), Epoche V, Schwenkdachwagen, Bauart: Taems [Güterwagen mit ofnungsfähigem Dach], bogies Υ25 of the welded type [geschweißte Ausführung] - READY MODIFIED ON THE BODY-SHELL, BUT NEEDS A CHASSIS, BECAUSE I HAD AN ACCIDENT LAST YEAR ON THIS. I MAY FIND FROM ΕΒΑΥ. DETAILS READY, BUT NEED CHASSIS.... :(

1./ The chassis was re-fixed and straightened (red arrows).

2./ The bufferplanks were refixed and reinforced (red lines). The high-powered buffers (Hochleistungspuffer) were installed. Bufferplate-dia.: 370mm = 4,3mm in HO, Bufferlength: 620mm by UIC = 7,126mm in HO (yellow arrows), as well as the buffer-backs (Spannplatte) (blue arrows), and finally the HANDMADE protection-hooks of the screw-chain (green arrow).

3./ The HANDMADE shunting-handrails were made 1,5 years ago.

4./ The Y25 bogies of the cast-edition (geschweißte Ausführung) will be used with prototype-wheel-dia.: 920mm by UIC = 10,57mm in HO, P87 wheelsets of the construction-series: BA02 that are used in both editions of Y25 bogies by UIC. They have the correct color of the chassis. They are taken from the SBB CFF Rilns Schiebeplanenwagen, Art.Nr.47606.
