The Terminus Layout: Pictures "Locomotives"

Parade of the engines! As the track plan of this model train layout provides a long straight mainline in the foreground, this is the perfect place for trainspotting or photo-shooting! This photo series starts with 2 steam engines meeting under the signal box - truly an impressive look even in small N scale. No wonder that the worker on the bridge waves his hand there:

The steam engine on the left is a BR 01 (Fleischmann), usually used for passenger trains. The BR 44 on the right is a powerhouse for heavy freight trains.

Once again the BR 44, now with a heavy coal train. The model is by Minitrix, its Faulhaber drive system is not placed in the tender, but in the boiler. It provides an excellent running:

In Germany the era of the steam locomotives ended in the 1970ies. Since that time only diesel and electric engines are in service; on main lines mostly electric locomotives. Next is a BR 141, a very popular engine (prototype as well as model) with many versions:

Another BR 141 is coming, but now in the green version. What a noise! Obviously the foreman has to speak loud to his workmates on the construction site in the foreground…
 

 
But how did the next loco come to Munich/Bavaria? I think, it is by Life-Like trains:

Two smaller diesel engines waiting on a siding track for the next jobs. These V 100 locos (later as classes 211, 212 or 213) were developed in the 1950/60ies for non electrified branch lines:
