Lionel F3 + Tillig BR218

The new frames for the F3 from i.materialise arrived. The order was placed 12 November and sent 22 November.

I ordered three sets. Two perhaps will go to other modellers. The cost was 66.21 euros plus shipping, total- 85.71 euros. In addition I paid Canadian duty and tax when it arrived and UPS charged a brokerage fee for collecting the taxes, $22 CAD altogether. Total cost for three sets is $146.55 CAD, or $48.85 CAD per set.

One set alone is priced 22.70 euros. Minimum order is 30 euros, and with shipping one set would cost 49.50 euros, or about $72 CAD. For that amount there might not be taxes added.

I mention all this because for me cost is a major factor, as I live on government pension.

The good news is that the frames fit perfectly. They just snap into place. Nice work.
The photos show the new frames compared with Tillig and Lionel.

Well, what do you know? I designed those frames specifically to fit Lok N Roll gear towers. Total bonus they fit the Tilligs!

They look great, make sure you post a photo of the completed loco for us!

Great idea making the Blomberg sideframes as a replacement for an existing part. I did a similar thing with an N scale sideframe recently, but I haven't installed them yet. Great minds think alike or something?

I wonder who came up with that design originally, and then who copied who, Lock n Roll or Tillig?

Lok n Roll last I knew got their gear towers from a company that makes kits and parts for HO trams. Can't remember the name...

It is Halling.

There are differences between the constructions of the trucks. That they fit on Tillig is luck.
