I´m Michelle from Germany- sorry for my bad english ;)

I´m completly new to TGauge (had a H0 starter kit only as child) and the moment I´m planning my first track :D
It should be a "model train" in a diorama.

I´ve looked everywhere but found not what I´m searching for.
I want an old western steam locomotive with coal tender, The General or similar. At it´s best it would fit for the 35,5mm motor. Maybe anyone have printed something like this? ... model-kit/

Kind regards

As far as I know, there is nothing like that available. While there are a few steam locomotives on Shapeways, the motorized ones are the largest American types from about a hundred years later, and the small British ones are unpowered and need a motorised passenger carriage to push them along.

The loco you are looking for really is too small to motorize in T scale - even in Z (2x larger), it would be a challenge.
