Mallet B'B Steam Locomotive Power Function Set [LDD]

Not far from our town there is a vintage train club that runs with steam locomotives as traction. The largest of the club's locomotives is a Mallet B'B (040+040) coupled steam locomotive which is more than 100 years old.

The club has many different passenger cars, but today's train was only the Mallet 104 locomotive, a freight car with built-in Power Function and two different passenger cars. As can be seen, semaphore signals are used.

The club runs on a track with a track width of 1000 mm. Read more under Background.

All stickers / tampon prints are created in Microsoft PowerPoint and adapted to the LDD standard. All photos are created with the highest possible resolution and with the best settings in LDD.

There are used 2245 elements to this build.

This set is inspired by the Chemin de fer du Vivarais in France.

The construction of the railway line, originally linking Tournon-sur-Rhône to Lamastre, was spread over five years, from 1886 to 1891. The winding route required many structures built to hang the railway against the rock face. Inaugurated in 1891, our line goes up the Doux valley.

The Mallet B'B (040+040) locomotive was built in 1906.
