We are definitely willing to pay $220 for a good RS-3 kit, depending on how soon, we will likely order 2-3 of them.

The kit is with a drive, incl. Faulhaber motor.
RTR would have a different motor and I do not know the price for it yet.


A kit with drive is fine. Still have my interest then.

I have received Lok'n'roll's 0-6-0 kit. Here are some pictures.
The drive is from PMT. Driver diameter is 10 mm (47¼"), wheel spacing 12.5 mm (4' 11")
The frame and gears are made of brass. Etched details for the tender are included.

And this is what I want to make out of it, PRR class B29:

My interest just piqued to 100%. I like what I see.

One question, is the tender hollow? Do you have a picture from the bottom? (sorry that was two questions)

Put me down for ordering one.

More locos?
I can't really get excited over more locos till someone decides to make an easy to buy line of US flextrack and turnouts so folks will have an easy way to build layouts to run them on. Some autos, trucks, and other details would also be more useful than another loco??......DaveB

This is not a new loco. It has been around for a while and RTR version is available from Lok-n-roll.
http://lok-n-roll.de/produkt-kategorie/lokomotiven/dampfloks/

Yes, the tender is hollow. There are not many other options for people who would like to model steam era.
I don't think that this loco was meant to be for everyone interested in NA-TT. The price is somehow high (even if you remove 19% VAT) and the production volume is rather limited.

The switcher? It is available to buy. Lok-n-roll (Mike Boehme) makes it. Send him an e-mail if you want to buy. His wife speaks English. (see pm)
