What exactly does this accomplish?
Possibly the description could be informative. I've translated the designer's German description given on Shapeways:

TT (1/120) new trucks with multistage transmission following Tillig's modular construction system for rebuilding an E94 of Zeuke/BTTB/Tillig. Per truck you'll need following parts: 1 × shaft, assembled Tillig 200455; 1 × cardan shaft 11 Tillig 321050; 1 × z19 Tillig 307250; 2 × z10 Tillig 323540; 1 × z20/z13 Tillig 318660; 2 × z12 Tillig 311130; 2 × z13 Bemo 1050 065 00; 2 × driving wheel-set Tillig E11/E42 e. g. 520193; 1 × driving wheel-set with friction tyres Tillig E11/E42 e. g. 520197; 3 × current collector Tillig E11/42 e. g. 520198; 3 × brake Tillig E11/E42 e. g. 530307; 1 × Peho standardized coupler shaft (601); various screws M1.4 and screw-tap M1.4; steel axles 1.5 mm and 2 mm

So is that for different gear ratios? To make it quieter? Both? Something else?

I think both. Write to Carsten, the same name here on board.

I also only know the description.
Because the designer emphasizes that it follows Tillig's modular construction system, I guess, the aim is to get the same qualities like other locomotives out of this modular construction system.

Thanks. I'm a bit skeptical because of the material. In my experience FUD doesn't do well over time (it warps) and is also not very hard/smooth so will cause too much friction against the axles, gear shafts and, other moving parts. I hope I'm wrong. I guess we'll see.

I just recevied the plates and decals from KUSWA.


After reviewing all the info from you guys and tt bord I decided not to replace the gears in my e 94. In my case outcomes would be questionable :lol: However I am going to add new handrails and steps.

The pre-1945 version needs a DR logo. Is that not included?
