My new PS Railroad eagle.

Article about: Hello. I picked this up at the Max Show this year. This was what I was looking for and I got a nice deal on it. I bought it off of JR who some of you might know over on WAF. It's a lovely 28

    Not sure about the G in front but AL-MG-SI denotes an aluminum magnesium silicon alloy.
    These alloys are used for their high strength and good castability.

    A bit of useless trivia is all I can add to this great item!

    Most often yes, HistoryMan. Have some photos in my planned railroad eagles-book!

    Have worked for the first part of the lay-out, which is send back to Bender Publishing, last week.
    Waiting for the second and last part. Have no idea yet when I will have it in hands.

    The book, which will be about metal eagles (so it will include also a chapter about metal headgear eagles),
    may have about 240-250 pages (a total over 650 photographs), but does not have the regular Bender size.
    It will be larger anyway and is sceduled for early 2016.
    As usual - learned from my earlier books - some will be quite pleased with it; others may expect more. Actual
    old drawings will be included, telling what size does belong where (wagon or engine) and drawings for example
    for the threads. Three chapters are specifically dedicated to the use of railroad eagles (about 520 photographs).

    Just wait and see!! I can reveal only two sample-pages, due to an embargo!

    Chapter 1 shows some eagle displaying, Reichsbahn look-a-likes and more. Within the chapter about headgear
    eagles the photo shown with the sample by now it known to many at various forums, as it was taken "un-authorized"
    from a German website. My friend from the website never had any request for the use of the photo, he told me!

    Have no idea, but it will. I have not asked the owner to take the eagle from
    the wooden backing. It would be a pity when something would be damaged.
    It is just a wonderful display in a collecting-room!!
    Another even more and most wonderful display will be a complete station in
    the backyard-garden in Germany from a person I know for years. The station
    has all "ins and outs", including an engine!!

    Looks like a very good informative book in the pipeline, will be an interesting read

    Cheers
