Roco Ludmilla

For those of you who own the Roco BR 132 (or the other designations), how do you like the model? Does it have good driving characteristics? I know someone has this because there used to be 3 of them at Euro Train and now there's only one. Here's a link to the model I'm talking about http://www.eurotrainhobby.com/product_info.php/Diesel-locomotive-BR-132/Roco/cPath/105_218/products_id/5833

Very nice models. Very pleased with them. If you ever own one please be careful when it's time for maintenance. Everything has to be assembled back the way it was done by the factory. The cardan shafts that are driven by the motor its the key, especially the gear boxes on eack bogie. If these are installed wrong the running characteristics won't be the same! The models manufactured inside the Austrian plant have all 6 axle driven, the models manufactured in Croatia, Hungary, Romania, etc... have only 4. The inner axles of the model (the ones located by the battery compartment) are missing the driving gears inside the gear boxes. I do not know the real reason for this. These gears can be ordered thru a specialised dealer if you choose to adapt them to the existing ones if your models are missing them. I get my stuff from www. puerner.com, the gentleman (Thomas Puerner) has a big selection of Roco (TT scale models), and at the moment he has some on sale (reduced price). Give it a try!

I've recently aquired one of these secondhand (36200), and it's missing the clip from the coupling holder. However, this isn't an NEM coupling socket. Do newer examples have NEM couplings? If so, I'll order the spare part to update it rather than simply replace the missing part.

I believe they all have the same coupler holder as the one you have.

Thanks, as Murphy's law dicates Roco have none in stock at present. I'll have to set a monthly reminder to check for them!

Recently we are dealing with 3 kinds of couplers, especially on this model. The earlier versions were released around year 2000 and they are adapted with the older inverted loop style couplers from former BTTB (the one that is so popular even KUEHN & PIKO still use them in some of their models), coupler # 2 version were adapted (a few years after Tillig decided to screw things up) with the new style coupler, then the 3rd version was installed 2-3 years ago (?) after Fleischmann joined forces or bought ROCO. I think from now on we are to expect every model from ROCO to come with the Fleischmann coupler which is not news to us, Fleischmann use to manufacture some of the former BTTB models in the 90's (?) that were adapted with this kind of couplers. All the spare parts numbers are listed in the instruction & spare parts sheets that come with every loco.
Rich B, I strongly recommend Modellbahn Puerner, if you still need spare parts. I guarantee he can get them for you! Mind the quantities, when you order large quantities of the same spare part, Tillig and ROCO become suspicious and refuse to release them. It happen to me and I did not know why my order was canceled or on hold.

I sourced them through Gaugemaster in the end, I kept checking Roco's stocks until they had some. Experience and dealers tell me it's not worth trying to put spares on back order with Roco, as sometimes part numbers change for spurious reasons such as a minor change of colour or similar.
