Thanks by comments and the information of the model, I finally changed my idea, The model will be like that you see, I will not put the antiaircraft on the wagon, because I didn´t see it in any old picture. Only saw these in another models of other modellers. That kit will put in some German truck.
See you soon, Omar!!!

Starting at around 6:55 one can see a BR52 (in grey) and a BR52.80 (in black/red) on the same train. The (these days far more common) 52.80 is the East German "rebuild" (Reko - Rekonditioniert) version with a new (and VERY good) boiler.

VSM Beekbergen

And at around 20:20 a BR50 with the "Wagner" system

Beautiful work !*!*!*!*!*!*!*!*!

No smoke lifters? I love the look of the smoke lifters.



War build 52s where delivered without Windleitbleche (At that time the large Wagner system) quite often. The crews quickly improvised (The Windleitbleche from the BR50 fit) and later the early versions of the smaller Witte Windleitbleche was seen on some (It was developed/testet on BR 52 2328).

Post war most BR52s (mainly used in the east, the west "Frankensteined" BR50 and BR52 to the BR 050, 051, 052 and 053 series) used a variant of the Witte system.

Fred, Those links are great!


Hi KoSp1,

Here's another (I just edited and updated the proceeding post.) https://books.google.ca/books?id=6zB-co8PLiYC&pg=PA19&lpg=PA19&dq=cnw+pink+lady&source=bl&ots=ywyLcXtJYT&sig=ACfU3U0RhY5ytmPrPTi5rqCtiw9M2sjh8g&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiDkvuB_8PqAhVhhOAKHUQqAv0Q6AEwEXoECAwQAQ#v=onepage&q=cnw%20pink%20lady&f=false

Omar,

You are doing great. I very much appreciate your skill and willingness to share.

For those of you who are interested, there is an amazing website
Railways of Germany. It is my go-to for Teutonic trains.

If you would like to see color photos of mainline steam operating in 1970-71, with some great shots of weathering and the color of track, look here: Steam on the Mosel 1970 und 1971

You will see that most of the ties are heavily stained with grease and oil, having a satin very dark gray color. In the next section, they are matte and gray. I surmise the shiner ties are in a yard and station track, where the engines set, or work hard: https://www.drehscheibe-online.de/foren/read.php?17,5306198

Track ballast is interesting, you can identify some railroads by the type and quality. (Look up CNW "Pink Lady" ballast, and an intereting book on MOW equipment: Pink Lady.) Some, at least during some administrations, would haul ballast far to maintain a "company look" of their track. Others would crush and use whatever suitable stone was in the region their track ran through. It appears that much of Germany's ballast is a brown or dark gray.

Maybe a bit late but you might want to search for pictures of the

Wiener Steifrahmentender 4 T30

(that is likely what the Trumpeter kit includes). The few pictures I have seen have far smoother side walls then the kit.

Omar, the kit might be considered a lemon in terms of accuracy, but it looks to be fitting together well and you are definitely turning it into a diamond, outstanding work!

Hi Boys, thanks by your comments
Its a kit a lemon, really... the blue disks that I put in the chassis are to ocult the marks of inyection, anfortunatly the kit has a lot of them in visible places. Its a plasticard, nothing special.
Take care and stay safe you too.

Omar,
Great work! I just found this thread and I can't wait to see more.
One question, what are the blue disks in the tender chassis. I hope that's what you call it, I'm not too familiar with steam trains.
Take care and stay safe,
Don "Lakota"
