Csehmodell - Hungary
Posted 20 March 2008 - 12:25 PM
I wish that I was more familiar with the elegance of the Hungarian language - even the letters appear graceful. I followed the sub-links to the sites that have these locomotives running what appear to now be (mostly) tourist rail-lines (and that is fine). I have two questions:
- Where would the prototype locomotives have been used? Industrial? Mining? Both? Tourist? 8)
Since I have little experience in 0e gauge:
- What scale track will these locomotives run on? Will you be providing track, or is it commercially available?
I anxiously await the wagons!
Thank you in advance,

The Oe tracks are commercially available. I saw several tracks in Austria, but the Oe scale is from Germany.
In Germany, in Austria, in Hungary, in Slovakia, in Romania the 760 mm (29,9 inch) is very popular scale, so the Oe scale is also popular in these countries.
O -> 1435 mm
Oe -> 760 mm.
By the way, the Oe engines run on H0 tracks, so you can try it on it, but it isn't looks very well:-)
The sleepers on NG tracks are different, etc...
At night I'm going to search pictures about the different.
Answer for your first question:
These engines usually ran on flat grounds, mainly in forestries, stone-pits...

We are interested in these wagons:

I am sure that once this model is better known there will be much interest from modellers in 0e, (1:45) as well as the similar 0n30 (1:48 ) and 0-16.5 (1:43.1) scales.
How do we order?
How is payment made?
What will be cost of postage to UK, other EU counties, & rest of world be?

We designed and produced everything.
The track isn't ours, but I also like it:-) If I want make some good pics I carry our parts to a friend.

Some pics from Mk48:
At Stainz (Austria)
At Feketebalog (Slovakia)
At Kenézlő (Hungary) - ceased line
At Kecskemét (Hungary)
Some pics from Mk48 in 0e:
These engine were built by Hungarian modellers.
So we're working on this, but now it will be produced just in H0e.
Sorry for big pics.

We're working also on Mk48 in H0e: (first version, handmade, with N scale drive)
And the other project is the L45H in H0e: (test CNC cut, the model will be built with Halling drive)
In our plans the L45H will be built in serial in 2 month, the Mk48 will be built in the summer. (in July, at least in August)
We're going to make a CNC cut body to the Mk48 also, the drive will be built.

How about an LyD2? That'd be a cracker! It would go nicely with the Roco Double Fairlie.
