BTTB / Zeuke Diesel's

Postby TT-SouthAfrica » Sun Jan 16, 2011 2:44 pm

Hi Fellow TT'ers

I'm hoping that someone has a BTTB / Zeuke Diesel that hasn't been modified.. Especially the method of fixing the Bogies to the body. As I'm repairing / restoring three BTTB diesels that the bogies aren't fixed to the base unit.
if so please could someone take some photo's so that I can see how they were assembled originally by BTTB / Zeuke.

Alas, I do not own BTTB - V180 or M61.

And what is "V220" ? Do you mean the DR V200 = Russian M62? Or DB BR220?

I have the second one, but it was repaired.

I still do not understand: West German, or East German?

If you mean West German V.200 I can photo it for you.

From my experience, there were 2 differen methods of bogie attachment on V180/V200/Nohabs (all of them are using the same chassis). The older one had the grooved bogie stem with the rudimentary washer version of spring-clip. They are extremely easy to break (don't ask me how I know...). The newer versions have a small hole through the boogie stem with a regular washer and a simple split pin (cotter pin) through it. This latter atteachment method works very well, and broken/lost pins can be replaced by a folded piece of thin wire. I would say, if you have a grooved stem, drill a small hole through it where the grove is and use a split pin. If you do need a photo I can post one.

paging through my BTTB Catalog (1972) I came across a sketch of the diesel chassis, noticed the washers and pins...
my V200 which is the Western German one btw.. thanks Arseny I've glued bits of round styrene into the bogies and used a bit of copper to keep them in place. Surprisingly and that I actually forgot my nohab actually still has the stems where the pin used to sit.

At the moment I've made copies of the brackets that hold the drive mechanism in place out of Brass stock, Exact replicas of the BTTB originals, with that I'm going to make copies of the vertical stem and make similar washers from brass of which I'll fix in place with a copper pin
