First shown at the Echtdampf-Hallentreffen steam meeting in Karlsruhe, January 2015, Feldbahn-FC7 has been developed from our popular Feldbahn design.
Weighing in at around half a ton, with 3 1/4 inch bore cylinders and boiler pressed to 150psi, the engine is suitable for the larger garden railway or most demanding of club applications. Available in both 0-4-0 and 0-6-0 wheel arrangements, with outside frames and flycranks for 7 1/4 inch gauge as shown here, or with inside frames for 10 1/4 inch gauge.
There is a short clip here of the engine pictured opposite running outside the workshop, prior to delivery.
