Taigatrommel

Hi! Me again... This East-German model from Roco, called 120, was a very common model in the Eastern block during the 70´s and 80´s. They are still in use in some former East European countries.

The nickname "Taigatrommel" (djungeldrum) comes from its very noisy engine. No exhaust at all...

So think like this... A cold night i january 1972... Just outside East-Berlin... Under a bad light...  Regards Jonas  :)

You need to have a member of the East German women's shot put team pulling it along the track with her teeth.
(the weathering is really good on that.)
