Lok-n-Roll New GG1 mechanism

Postby gabbysuz » Mon Aug 23, 2010 5:58 pm

Hello All,
Just received news Lok-n-Roll are producing a new mechanism to power the Lionel GG1 electric locomotive :grin:
They said it would be released around the time of the Leipzig fair at the beginning of October. Price to be around £110 Euros.

A preview video was posted :



Also a couple others of the GP9 and E7 (not sure of origin for the E7 body ?)

I guess lots of European modelers might have catenary so a GG1 could appeal to them more?
Anyone know a lokNroll dealer in the USA? Also does anyone know what kind of gear train these units use and how they compare in running characteristics to the PVM GP 7 conversion drives? ......dave

No US dealer. If you want their stuff, you gotta go to their Ebay shop: http://stores.ebay.com/Lok-n-Roll-online-store

I love the GG1. Thankfully, I'm not an SPF, so I can't use it - saves me 110 Euro. ;P

Regarding the E7 - around 2000, Union-TT listed an E7 body shell in their catalogue, designed to fit the Tillig BR118 IIRC. Perhaps these are those shells? I wonder if someone's decided to reissue them... I could get away with an E7 since the Pere Marquette did have them for mainline service.

The E7 shell are the originals from Union-TT. They are the last 25 we could get. A reproduction isn't planned in the future.
So the models Lok-n-Roll will offer are limited. I hope anybody will enjoy one of them.

the Union TT E7 looks kind of unusual for a GM bulldog cab and nose. a bit too low. droopy eyes. it sort of reminds me of the CNJ, NYC and MoPac Baldwin 'babyfaces'. is it converted from a NOHAB shell, or does it have any relation to the HP products E7?

Anyone here in the USA have one of the lock-N-roll GP9 Lionels conversions yet? I'm wondering what the gear ratio and speed range is and how large the flanges are?....dave

I have a geep chassis from these guys. It was fantastic in the beginning but has developed an issue with one of the drive shafts that I can't get rid of. It doesn't fully couple with the worm gear for some reason - it's as if the drive shaft has shrunk by half a mil.
As far as speed and what not, I haven't taken measurements but it appears appropriate.
