Title: So you want your own Px 48 ...
Post by: Glenn Christensen on February 09, 2009, 11:05:04 PM
Hi Folks,

I just found this website.  My German is not the strongest, but it looks like a good place to get your own Px48 in 750mm, 785mm or meter gauge.

http://www.interlok.info/Px48.htm (http://www.interlok.info/Px48.htm)

They're a good solid little locomotive and the design is well-proven.  They're also a little snazzier-looking than the Russian KC-4 or  Chinese C-2  designs.

As far as getting one in 610mm gauge (i.e. 2'), I imagine anything is possible ...

Save now and avoid the Christmas rush.


Grins and Best Regards,
Glenn

Mein GOTT!

Hmm....

Bleah.

I admit, it'd be nice for somebody, but not WW&F.

Hmm...
maybe you could interest B&ML (in it's curent form) in it to go with thier Swedish Meatball.  ;)

I have ridden behind a Px48 as well as on the footplate and I have even operated one.
I have also visited the Pila Locomotive Works, which is mentioned in the article. Pila is in Poland.
These are strong little brutes but DEFINITELY not WW&F material

Thanks for the translation, Bill!

I've always thought those Px48s are nice solid little lokies. 

So when I saw the page, I figured some of you guys would appreciate it.


Best Regards,
Glenn

Why not start with a 4-passenger, 610 mm, hand car from Interlok for operation on the Southern Division (track south of Cross rd.) of the W.W.& F. Ry.
