Got some photos of the new T435 from Tillig at this site: http://www.trainmania.info/zapisky.html#hektor

Looks like they decided to forget about putting the different style truck side frames on it.

ARGH TILLIG!

Those truck sideframes are the primary (if not only) reason I want a T435!

Interesting looking loco. I could see using one for a freelanced shortline with some americanization of the details and couplers. What era is it, it looks fairly modern? How would one of these run on DCC? Would they be a good low speed switch engine? Anyone ever tried to grind down the Tillig flanges to HP size? .....dave

It's a knockoff of an American loco, U6B or U8 or something like that. A few shortlines and industrial roads in the US used them, too.

TTQuebec is correct that this locomotive was copied and inspired by a GE design. These T435's were built by ČKD starting in 1958 and were the first diesel locomotives built in Czechoslovakia, setting the path for all future diesel locomotive production in the country. Most of these locomotives saw service (and still see service today) as secondary line engines pulling both freight and passenger trains. A batch of these locomotives were even exported to East Germany to be used as heavy shunters. They were given the nickname 'Hektor' (which may have something to do with dogs).

Etched metal kits of this locomotive shell with american style side frames can be found at http://www.hekttor.biz/index.php?lng=EN ... &kod=12054.

If you scroll down to the 3rd video on this link (http://www.trainmania.info/video.html) you can see how this model runs on both DC and DCC.

the last time i ordered from them was about a year ago so the details are a bit fuzzy. However I remember shipping rates being acceptible and i believe shipping took about 3 weeks. They speak a little english so shoot them an email.
