Interesting site. Was he behind the Eishindo ICE? Coaches and locos are different versions. He designed one but had to wait for the Eishindo chassis to, as he says, bring it to life!

It's a start, though. His little steam loco may not crawl along but there'll come improvements.

This site was reported on in the previous TTG site ....and all the work was done pre-2013. I'd almost forgotten about it!

I'm fairly certain he's not behind Eishindo's ICE development...I'm sure it was developed in conjunction with Alan Ramsey of TGauge.com...or I think Alan sowed the seeds!

If you look closely at the photos, you should notice that all the gearboxes are the very early ones and the motors will also be early...which is why they're not that slow in the videos. They're pre-PWM controllers.

Maybe it's just as well Tgauge.com isn't selling those little steam locos....Right now I'm paying about $70 US for what is basically $4 US slot-car look'n like a toy train...as a total addict I'd blow all the milk money to get one of those little worm gear drive locos.......still drooling.....geeeze what is so damn hard about t gauge toy trains (?) the technology exists ....

Uwe Fenk seems not to be active anymore in T-Gauge. Every couple of month a post as "T-Pionier" in the still existing but actually dead German T-Gauge Forum. I tried to register there one year ago, but no answer. All of his models are handcrafted. The small steam loco and the jacobs-bogie are fantastic...
