I think it's really fantastic in what level of detail you work!! I also read the whole thread very carefully and I'm really fascinated!
I saw some loco chassis and frame parts are printed in 3D (by shapeways). In one of the last posts you wrote something about:

Both new parts are precision casting products.
The quality is excellent and is very sure the root of a small series.
So please, can you explain a little bit more about the procedure to get such parts? Which manufacturer did you choose and is it the same procedure as like schapeways (upload 3D data and receive an offer...)!? I know there are many questions, but I am very interested on your work!

Hello, Wolfgang,
I have my model made in the jewellery industry using the investment casting method.

I transfer the STL-files and receive the cast model by mail. the models from shapewyas were always only half-finished - I always had to rework them. My models from the jewellery industry can be used without reworking.

This quality is 4 times more expensive. So what, since I broke the 5000€ mark I don't do any more calculations anyway

BR,

Siegfried

Siegfried send me one of his excellent 01 bodies and the breached spoke hub caps for the wheels and I'm now building this steam locomotive in cooperation with him. He will also have the cross heads and another small part made for me. It will probably be the most perfect locomotive I have ever put on the T-gauge tracks, as can be seen from the attached photos already. An important step towards the first model railway steam locomotive in T Gauge, that will build in series.
Because the interest for this locomotive is probably greatest in Germany, I beg your forgiveness, that I write everything again in German:

Ich habe mir von Siegfried eines seiner exzellenten 01-Gehäuse und die durchbrochenen Speichenscheiben schicken lassen und baue diese Dampflokomotive nun in Kooperation mit ihm. Auch die Kreuzköpfe und ein weiteres Kleinteil wird er für mich noch anfertigen lassen. Es wird wohl die perfekteste Lok, die ich bisher auf die T-Gauge-Gleise gebracht habe, wie beigefügte Fotos jetzt schon erahnen lassen. Ein wichtiger Schritt zur ersten Modellbahn-Seriendampflok in Spur T.

The smallest, self-driving, electric model railway locomotive in the world will not be a T Gauge locomotive forever! (-:

... Note: if you look the photo in 4.5x3.2cm size, they have exactly the original size! But even facial features can be seen enlarged, left the eyes and nose, right the one with the hat deep in the face, nose and mouth. (-:
