The Kraehwinkel Eisenbahn Gesellschaft (KEG) succeeded in aquiring a new wagon for the purposes of the local museum
When touring in bad weather condition, the load in the shelves is covered by tarpaulin curtains.
Five of these wagons parked side by side take up as much room as a standard overseas container. That is, why I mounted some loops to the roof. It can be lifted on board of a boat or a standard gauge railway wagon by a yard crane.
The idea for this wagon started, like many stories today, in one of the internet forums http://www.buntbahn.de/modellbau/viewtopic.php?p=263071&highlight=gem%FCsewagen#263071
Mad Gerald and Michael S. were discussing the possibillities of a larger Gn15 wagon, suitable to transport crates with fruit or vegetable directly from the fields to the consumer.
Last weekend, at the meeting of some of the Kreativmeilen members, I happened to get my hands on one of the first lasercut testsamples made from plastic (Acrylic) Found some glue and assembled it.
The basic flat car is approx 45 x 95 mm. It runs on Hornby 14,1 mm wheels. I can imagine, this design is suitable for many more transport purposes.
Before mounting the ends, I glued some planks to the outside and the inside. In this case Jim´s Printable Minis were used.
The final assembly was more or less straight forward and archieved in less than an hour.
The new loco drivers, Russ & Gus, can´t wait to start their Jenbach Diesel (A Oliver Zoffi Laser design) to haul the new wagon across the Kraehwinkle track:
Meanwhile the prototype design has been worked over and is available at Michael Saettler´s Laser-Gang-Shop.
