Yes, but the drive looks weird. HP Product's 4-8-8-4 maybe only resembled Big Boy, but its drive was correct.
I'd buy and either combine those two models or correct the drive on this one.

This is still a proto proto-type. It was shown last Saturday on a TT-Board meeting, called "Stammtisch", in Dresden. I have to check out the data where you get info about this project. I will provide that later.

But that somebody has the nerve to start with this steam engine is remarkable.

Ciao,
Rob

That is a big project! Very impressive it's gotten that far. It would be nice to have a modern TT steam loco to show off.
I would buy one, even though they didn't run through my area at all. But Please give us lots of notice so I can start saving money for it!

I would be interested - depending on the level of detail and prototypicalness. It doesn't have to be perfect but it can't have major mistakes. If the body is RP definitely no.

OK guys, more info:

The producer is Ingolf Hass. English is a bit a problem if you want to communicate directly with him.

There are two versions, both versions available as kit or RTR model.

Standard version:
- tender, frame and house are plastc with extra weight added
- motor unit in the house powering 8 wheels
- weight and power should be enough for 40 freight cars
- kit will cost 1500€, RTR around 2000€

Power version:
- another motor unit in the metal tender
- frame and house are plastic with extra weight added
- motor unit in the house powering 8 wheels
- loco should be able to pull 100 freight cars
- kit will cost 1750€, RTR will cost 2200€

Ciao,
Rob

For that price it needs to be reference model.
