Hi,

only a few of my Decauville 0-4-0 with 45 mm gauge are left, then both gauges are sold out. In about 4 month I will get a new batch with 32 and 45 mm gauge Decauvilles. If you are interested please reserve yours or take one of the last ones with 45 mm gauge. Please note that it is very important to preorder now if you want to get a 32 mm version, otherwise you could have the same problem as now, sold out !

Regards,

Lorenz

Hi Herr Schug.
I have worn out your Conrad 0-4-0, and lust after the Decauville, but won't pay the price. I am communicating to you you how much I did enjoy your two videos. After 20 years in the hobby I still famously enjoy running 45 mm live steam at home, but I also enjoy seeing the sites/backgardens where others, especially Europeans, exercise their locomotives. The two sites that you picked to run on were excellent. Bravo!

Dear Mr Schug,
Thank you very much for bringing the 040 Decauville to the Live Steam community!
I just received my loco #25 from Accucraft USA. It is a a fantastic locomotive. Sturdily built and very nicely detailed. Really great workmanship.
Theere are so many large and even huge steam locomotives on the market. The number of small locomotives is relatively low. It is great to have an iconic locomotive like the Decauville. :)

Accucraft Decauville 0-4-0T current delivery information

We are hearing rumours we do not like but we are sure someone is just stirring up trouble. It has been reported that the 0-4-0T Decauville is ‘sold out’ and that Accucraft UK will not get any stock!
This information is absolutly incorrect! At the moment both Decauvilles can be ordered in both gauges from all Accucraft Dealers. The production will be finished now about mid of September this year.

If you like to buy a Decauville please contact your local Accucraft dealer or Accucraft Europe, UK and USA.

Thanks,

Just as a FYI, I have IN STOCK a Blue Decauville 020 in 32mm. Ive opened the box for display only at a few train shows. Email if interested. I also have a sealed 45mm available too.

That is simply spectacular. I would love to see this running in person.

I know nothing of these things. I'm curious about a couple things. Can the speed be controlled and when the train came to a stop, is this because it ran out of water or did it run out of fuel?

Wonderful video!

There are live steam groups all over the country if you tell us where you live, there is a good chance someone will know of steaming events near you. Some are invitation only, and some are open to the public. Once people know you are interested, an invitation usually isn't that hard to get. They are fun to watch. I've been tempted on occasion to get into live steam, but so far I'm track and battery power only.

A lot of train shows have a streaming track as part of the layouts.

Punkin,
Good to see you here!
And to have you fascinated by live steam already.
First, like Chuck says, see some of these engines in real life, clubs and individuals who own a track can be found, otherwise, you can also try to attend some large show.
Best wishes from Tokyo,
Zubi
