Default Regner offers coal fired for 2010

I notice that Regner's new Fossily can be wood or coal fired. Click on Actuelles, Neuheiten 2010, then Fossily. Click on vergrößern by the small picture to see a good closeup of the machine. I would be a little skeptical about the 1:22.5 scale, however because it's based on the Chaloner, then it might be closer to 7/8ths. I'll need to see one up close to make sure.

I changed the Germish into English - 'Fossily is the first-ever Regner locomotive that is either coal or wood-fired. Named 'Fossily' after the so-called fossil fuel [coal] and fitted with reduction gear, this Easy-Line model is fully assembled and ready to run out of the box. It has an axle-fed water pump with bypass and water feed re-supply pump bottle. It includes all the necessary items for operation - coal, ash-rake, auxiliary suction fan, oil tools and so on.'

Hm... does anyone else think $2,800 (€1,985) is a bit high?

It's a really cool idea, and I would like to buy one as an introduction to coal firing. That's just a lot of cash for such a small locomotive.

Yeah, there is a small man on the footplate, my memory is the 1:1 Chaloner's chimney top was close to human head height?

EDIT 'ere we go:

I think this one could be fun:

It might even be possible to convert it to 30mm gauge...

David it is 30/32/45. Probably like the other easy line-adjust the wheels. Nice, but unfortunately for about the same money, David Bailey is offering a Robert if there is enough interest. DJB offering is based on a Roundhouse chassis with Hackworth so should be a good runner.

First the coal engine:




219 euros for the little sterno fueled max microlok, now what will it be when regner america gets it, could indeed be a winner!(cheap fun engine with fuel available at all grocery stores).

I guess it doesn't fit the idea that small = cheap in a little loco, but then the work involved in building a coal-fired live steamer is far greater than for a simple pot-boiler, or even most gas-fired models. Axle water pumps, by-pass valves and plumbng, not to say the compleixities of a coal-fired firebox and boiler, take it into the realms of true model engineering, rather then the usual [high-grade] toys that most of us have.

Ask David Bailey, or Torry, or John Shawe, Dave Hottmann, or any of our coal-fire mavens with which our hobby is thankfully blessed....
