    Default Last surviving Krauss-Maffei ML4000 takes a walk...

    As I have been continuing to work on my Trainz version of the Krauss-Maffei ML4000, the real deal took a stroll this past weekend...

    To many it probably doesn't look like much, but when you consider what this unit has gone through, and the full history behind it (which can be found here: http://sp9010.ncry.org/ ), it's a pretty amazing thing to see.

    Reagrds,

    Awesome. I love the ML4000's. Wish they could find the necessary components to make it move under it's own power.

    Unfortunately, those components weigh a lot and might not even exist anymore.

    Isn't that something. Who would have thought that such a thing could occur today? Pretty cool if you ask me.

    Thank you very much for the link to the video.
    I am looking forward to the first public test of your Kraus-Maffei.

    amazing! simply amazing! I've seen pictures of what she used to look like; it's night and DAY compared to what she looks like now. Keep on rolling, old girl. Maybe they'll find a motor for you yet; you never know.

    It does run under its own power. But it didn't 6 years ago when this thread was last updated.....
