Just published, a WalkRound of a preserved BR52 Locomotive. The photos were taken in the Deutsches Technikmuseum, Berlin and although the locomotive is in need of some TLC, it should still serve as a useful source for those working on Trumpeter''s model. The feature can be seen:

Nice! It looks to me that this is the first surviving BR52 engine in original state. There seam to be no post war modifications. Unfortunately there is no pic of the stove. Is it the cylindric style or does it have a quare housing?
I think this will be the cause for my next trip to the capitel.

Happy modeling

Quoted Text

Unfortunately, the locomotive is in desperate need of a good clean-up. There is a fair amount of corrosion (indicating that it had been housed outside) although from a layman's viewpoint, it looks as if all the essential bits are in place...

As far as the condition goes ... it may look worn and neglected ... but just perfect images for what I want for my BR52. Love the corroded red colour on the front and back. Have been a little doubtful of what colours to use ... red/black, dark grey or camo, but now Im definately decided.
Thanks for the images Jim. These are gold!
