    ...ok, it's not US or Canadian but it's N-scale.

    bought a first "testsample" of the new Hobbytrain/Lemke made by Ajin, Korea model of a european Siemens/Krauss-Maffei BR182 Taurus Dispolok...

    ...they run also through Switzerland with a little different look - decals,
    some color and a little weathering, a 3rd pantograph and this is the result.

    first you see the engine "out of the box" and below the "slightly enhanced" version :)

    alright, Steve, what for the 3rd pantograph? Is the overhead in such rough shape that they figure to lose 2 of them on an average trip? :D

    ...this engine is proofed for different countries in Europe. each country has similar catenary but not identical, the third pantograph on this engine is equiped with a special plate for the Swiss catenary, that easy... :thumb:
    (also the power is different in the countries, this engine is running with 15 kV - 16 2/3Hz and 25 kV - 50 Hz)
