Blomberg B-Trucks

 Blomberg B-Trucks

Note: I am not actively marketing any products at this time due to a prohibitive work schedule. I will continue to take orders when requested but please expect extended production times.


My design incorporates a pivot equalized, steel support frame with urethane side frames. The axles are supported by flanged, sealed ball bearings. Power is transferred from the high torque traction motor through a 4:1 reduction to the axles via chain and sprockets.

A steel frame offers an indestructable structure to support the locomotive, while the urethane side frames provide a high level of detail.

Rough track?

    The flexibility that these trucks offer is astounding, they can accomodate very poor track conditions.

Stop & Go

My Blomberg Trucks use a powerful 900W DC Traction Motor with a 4:1 reduction providing surprising power, The pneumatic disc brake gives you all the braking power you could want.
