About the kit
The kit is comprised of a 3D printed plastic body shell, a fret of etched nickel silver detail parts and a fret of 3D printed detail parts.
The body is designed to fit on the Minitrains Fiddletown & Copperopolis 0-4-0 loco chassis.
Please note this is a scale model for adult collectors, and not intended for children under 14 years of age.
The prototype series of this small diesel locomotive were built by LKM in Germany as NS3f diesels for a number of forestry railways in Hungary after the Second World War, specifically where the standard C050 diesel was found to be lacking tractive effort on the steeper and longer lines of the Szilvásvárad system.
Initially built with 50hp engines these were replaced with larger 60hp units when they were rebuilt with new cabs better suited to the harsher winter climate. Today a number of examples have survived in use on tourist railways although there are none in active forestry service.
