NS Hispeed Fyra Traxx F140 MS2 - Sideview
The Bombardier Traxx is the current workhorse on most of the Cargo trains in Europe, but next to that, it also has seen a fair share of use in passenger trains. In the Netherlands the High Speed Line - Zuid between Amsterdam Schiphol, Rotterdam and Breda is their main operating ground.
In the last 5 years, BigDeady and have been desiging our own takes on the Bombardier Traxx in 1:45 scale. This is hopefully my final version.
It's powered by 2 L-motors geared 1:2 for prototypical speed. It has both a PFx Brick (4MB) and an XL speaker. There is some spare room for LEDs, which haven't been included as of yet.
All decals are made with a Dymo MobileLabeler Labelwriter on 300dpi. Unfortunately, it's not always the sharpest printer, but from a little distance it really works well.
Shout out to BigDaedy for his ongoing motivational emails, comments and messages. Also mad props to DennisakaTECHNO, Beck__, dutchtrains and all others who have tried their hands on the Traxx in the past, you for sure inspired me to keep on building this machine.
My loco will make it's debut this weekend at the Brick King Lego Train Day:
