Morning, Garrett - got my name down for that cute little beam engine, me!!

The showman's engine looks pretty neat, too, except that is badly in need of rubber tyres all-round. I used to help out firing two of these in our village here, BTW. Still got the scars on both arms from the Garratt, too.

Let's hope they decide to build the cars that go with it. Here's a pic of the reproduction "Adler" built in 1935.

I see the Kittle has made a reappearance in a new paint job. Those are fun little engines when they are done correctly, absolute hair-pullers when they are not. The Adler is certainly interesting, especially since it has 2 double acting cylinders jammed in the framework. The walking beam stationary engine may be big enough to make it into a boat...hmm

Well Dave,
If not, you can always pick up some from the Marklin set.
All the best,
David Leech, Delta, Canada

I have never bought from Regner but I am interested in several of those items. Was that speeder steam powered?

Does anyone know if these are kits or ready to run? Also do they ship to the US or do they have a dealer here?

I actually really like the dampf triebwagon


http://www.regner-dampftechnik.de/aktuelles/neuheiten2010/25650_uerikonbaumabahn.php

Here's the previous version they released in 2006:

http://www.regner-dampftechnik.de/aktuelles/neuheiten2006/kittel_dampftI riebwagen.php


They are a lot of fun and fairly easy to build. The Kittel I assembled had some fitment problems with the window frames, but the new release shouldn't have any problems seeing as there are no frames to put in! I really like this new version better than the Kittel, much more subtle.


They are small too, a 1:32 PFE reefer or AAR boxcar is taller and longer than the dampf triebwagen is.

Yeah, I can remember seeing several large stationary engines in a museum as a child, have loved them since.

A lot of interesting fodder. I have two e-mails to Regner (in German) in the past three weeks with yet no reply, but I bet the toyfair is to blame.

Hi Adam,
If by "speeder" you mean this one: http://www.regner-dampftechnik.de/a...i_30mm.php then it is electric.

Most of Regner's products require some assembly, ranging from a few minutes with a screw driver to many hours of advanced kit building. It maybe possible to buy the models pre-assembled, for a premium, others may have more experience than me... I enjoyed putting together a Saxonia kit for a friend.

In the US, the exclusive importer is Ken Johnson at the Train Department. He has not updated his site to include all the new items yet, but you can Email him for a quote and delivery time.

To tell the truth, you will have a lot more fun building the easy-type kits than you think. The instructions are clear and you'll learn a lot about the workings of a real steam engine from accomplishing this small task for very little effort. The more complex models DO require some careful thinking and very precise assembly, but are still easily attainable by most people handy with small files, clearing-out-hole taps and a solid piece of heavyweight glass for lapping bits of the steam chests and for frame building where necessary. The usual range of small tools, like a precision set-square, some Swiss files and a good set of metric nut-runners and wrenches is also useful.

You can balance his by the fact that Regner WILL build it for you, but figure on between 100 and 150% mark-up for the privilege. In other words, your 2000eu kit will cost you about between 4000 and 5000eu built and ready to run.

The 'Heidi' loco from the RhB is a remarkable model, and the example that I know was built by Rod Blakeman over here in yUK - around 4500eu built by Regner. you can see it on YT by tagging Heidi regner pandyr ...

Here's a quick translation of the Regner blurb about this contractor's locomotive -

This model is intended for our light railway programme. The chassis is made from brass and the motor housing from a pewter casting. The contractor's loco is driven by two Faulhaber motors - one motor is used to turn the diesel engine flywheel and the other drives the little loco by means of a chain. The model is ready-to-run and may, if required, be supplied with an ESU decoder. Press the control button, and the motor starts up and the flywheel rotates just before the loco actually moves. A single-cylinder diesel engine sound costs 119eu extra.

Technical data:
Gauge 30 mm
Weight 360g
L/B/H: 104/55/86 mm
2 Faulhaber Motors
Leather seat
The engineer figure is not included.

This so-called Feldbhan system uses 30mm track gauge - exclusive to Regner and a couple of other very high-priced specialist makers in Germany, and is not, AFAIK, re-gaugable. As you can see, it s VERY small.

Hope this helps.

I liked that little railbus too - I even resized the photo so we could all drool... I wonder what it costs?



1.790,00 €, roughly $2,500 usd. That's not including shipping I believe.

Don't forget if you are outside of the EU, you can deduct VAT, as listed on their own site. So knock off another 19%, or multiply the price by 0.81 and then the current Euro-Dollar exchange.

For US sales there are no other taxes or import duty (model railways).

$2025 plus shipping.

Phew. When do they have a sale ??
Why should they have a sale? They can sell everything they make many times over. For many people in Germany they keep more change than that in the car to pay Autobahn tolls.
