Well, it's obviously a BTTB BR81/92 chassis. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand - that's all I got.

You do know your BTTB/ TIllig, even if it's steam!
It was actually proposed as the "new" TT locomotive that was going to be released by RailTech back in the 90's.
It's a BTTB chassis with a resin boiler and an HP tender- looks pretty good for a hybrid? But unfortunatly RailTech went out of business before they were released. Supposedly the molds for the boiler shell are still floating out there, but no word on who has them. It would be cool to have more US locos that ran as well as the European models!

Wow, that looks pretty damn good.

I have been considering using a BR 81/92 chassis for such a project, but present projects and medical problems are taking priority.

Again, That looks like a good starting point for those that have plenty of Zeuke/Tillig/BTTB German proto stuff and wants to get into American Prototytpe.
