here are some pictures and clips of my BR45 which was made for me by Accucraft in a limited edition of 50 units. It is a butane fired 3-cylinder Live-Steam loco with a lot of features, like fully sprung loco chassis and tender, axle pump, tender water pump, full working valve gear, crank from inner cylinder with ball bearing, all main axles from the loco with special bearings ...

I start delivery of this loco in September last year and a few of them are still left in my warehouse. This pictures shows my factory sample but the production units are much better.


MBV Schug - Germany

The clips below are from a brand new production unit, running in the UK and in the Netherlands:
