Hi guys,
Thanks for your reaction and I think that it probably is a rebuild F3. See the picture.
For the time being, I will put it aside.

The GTW 9020 is one of the series 9016-9027 and an F3 Phase IV, also named F5. The locos were built in September 1948 with the F7 electrical (heavier-duty cables and GM-D27C traction motors) and stainless steel grills instead of the chicken wire ones. As I see it, only the side porthole windows are missing compared to the F7. The outer dimensions are the same.

Time for some good news.
ATSF Bluebonnet F7 will not be the first to produce, but the supplier accepts the painting challenge and it will be probably in the second batch.

Blomberg B trucks.
I have a limited number of correct pictures and drawings, see below. If somebody has better pictures/drawings, please provide them.
A question about the trucks, is the speed recorder always on the left truck first wheel? See B&O picture.

Hi Rob,

I have also sent a better version of that drawing (that you posted above) to your info at zeuke email address. Also sent a very large scan of a technical drawing via Wetransfer. I haven't heard if you received them so maybe check your spam folder if you haven't

Thxs Steve and Alex.
I reacted to you with a PM.

For everyone, please do not use info@zeuke-tt.com, but use a PM instead.
