It seems the Fanny didn't sell - no bids. Looked like a bargain - I was tempted myself. Even with shipping to the US, it would have been <$650. But I'm still saving my sheckels for the "Cricket" I've ordered.
The MDT LOK is interesting - it does indeed appear well made. Looks a bit liike a Stainz.
The lok in the instruction pamphlet is very interesting - does the model actually exist? It looks like a rack lok. I know I've seen a full scale one like it somewhere on the internet - perhaps the Achenseebahn.
"It is one of the happiest characteristics
of this glorious country that official utterances are invariably
regarded as unanswerable."
