This keeps looking better and better! I'm amazed that you have a smoke unit too. And ......... all of this is T Gauge!

Looks like it's time to retire my Flying Scotsman models. :-)

Because I'm preordering one of these! :-D

There is a serious problem: The locomotive has an electrical short circuit that I can not get rid of because I do not know exactly where it is.

There's no such thing as a problem...…...its a challenge!

And I have every confidence in your ability to rise to this challenge and resolve it! ;)

Do you have to write this now? (-; I just wanted to give up, because there is one problem after another: electrical short circuit, the smoke generator takes the power from the motor, and now a magnet ring is loose too.
If everything went right the first time, I would build such a locomotive for others as well. But it takes an incredible amount of time for setbacks and tests. This is very exhausting, 200 hours of work are perfectly normal for such a locomotive, nobody can pay that!

I'd probably order one without the smoke unit. :-)
(I have enough trouble with G-Scale smoke units)

And if I can afford this beauty, I can certainly afford one of yours.

Although I might be a while to get the money.
(I still have the little motor units you made me years ago. ;-) )

Hello Matthew,

first of all many, many thank you for always giving my YouTube videos a positive rating.
In addition to the lot of work there is a second reason why I do not build such a locomotive for others: they are extremely sensitive. If you can not build something like that, you will also have difficulties with maintenance. My locomotives are not suitable to play with it. They would break if used for a long time. These are just not mature series models. I can not risk that someone will pay a lot of money for such a locomotive, and then it will break after a short time. The two small motor units were simple vehicles, but a steam locomotive is much more sensitive! Siegfried and Alan may soon offer solid steam locomotives to buy, so have some patience.
I myself build these locomotives, film a video, and then they come in the plastic box. For ever! If I want to see my locomotives drive, I watch like you the videos.
Are the small motor units still working?

Kind regards
Uwe

Sorry Uwe, I was only kidding about buying the models.
As much as I love one, I would feel bad to see you depart with any of them.

Eishindo is also still trying to make a Steam loco.
I was fortunate enough to see some prototype photos.

The little Motor units still work, bit temperamental (stall on points), but still working. :-)

I do not think KK Eishindo will build a steam locomotive. You sent me the photos of this prototype - terrible! Who presented such a glued crap even at fairs is not able to build something like that! Already the trainsets of KK Eishindo drive badly, how can they then get a
good steam locomotive!
I think the first commercially available steam locomotive in T Gauge will come from Germany. I'm only a handmaker, but what Siegfried does is practically the preparation for little series production.
However, everyone should be aware that such a well-functioning and good looking steam locomotive costs 1000 euros and more, which is not the made in China mass-produced price!
I am really happy that the small motor units are still driving. Have you already tried liquid silver on the points?

Ewe, does the silver conductive paint carry the full track current? It looks promising for fixing track gaps.

Have you used on any other applications such as headlamps or signals? I'll have to get some and try it.

In regard to the steam locomotive, I believe Alan has a prototype that keeps getting closer to production, it's a 4-10-2 if my memory serves, or some other very large steam locomotive.
