note - The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped WorldNet effective 31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything.  Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand.  See my sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

Insanity doesn't run in my family, it just sort of dawdles along.


Because the Apocrypha and Guest Apocrypha indices exceeded the capacity of the individual pages, they are now presented in full on a separate Berlinerwerke Apocrypha Index (including the Guest Apocrypha Index).

Because the Apocrypha and Guest Apocrypha indices exceeded the capacity of the individual pages, they are now presented in full on a separate Berlinerwerke Apocrypha Index (including the Guest Apocrypha Index).


Before I start, I should note that all this started with a secret project that is still unfinished and the next major development of the Berlinerwerke was their fabled DDP45:

ADDITIONAL APOCRYPHA


Anent water, and along with the NYC Niagara on the previous page, I also got a NYC Hudson that was quite different from anything I ever expected:

When the wind was right, this baby could really sail along; with that high poop, she did a half moon rather well.  The Water Level Route will never be the same again!

The Pennsy had some rather "cute" little 2-6-0s in the F class, known as the "Mogul"; this one is, again, not quite what I expected.

In addition, and far bigger, was the Pennsy M-class Mountain 4-8-2; this one seems ready to rumble:

In line with the foregoing, I somehow seem to have forgotten to post a whole slew of Micellaneous Missed Expectations.  Here, in date order, are other models I never expected nor wanted:

PRR/BW CENTIPEDI - Once again (as on Apocrypha page 14), I wish to thank Roland Ruesch for specific written permission to utilize his superb drawings in my research into the oddities from the Berlinerwerke; see his amazing and impressive collection of locomotive drawings at The Engine Shop (real locos).  On the preceding page 20, we looked at the BW-BLW Shark-nosed Centipede; thanks to Herr Ruesch, we are now able to see the loco, the BP20A, in better detail:

[Click on thumbnailed picture for larger image.]

Now, tell me that isn't far handsomer than the baby-face!

Ira Ersatz had proposed an improvement on the Centipede to Pennsy management 'way back; through a misunderstanding of what was meant as an Altoona joke, George thought they wanted an A-B-C-D-E wheel arrangement and Ira went ahead with a BP40:

BP40Centipede

[Click on thumbnailed picture for larger image.]

On learning of the error, Ira quickly rectified the matter:

[Click on thumbnailed picture for larger image.]

Once the sheer beauty of the Shark-nose on the BP20A had become known, these two drawings were upgraded accordingly:

[Click on thumbnailed pictures for larger images.]

Unfortunately, as with so many BW proposals to Altoona, these came to naught, more's the pity.

Of course, Ira was never quite sure of the Whyte classification system and got easily confused with the Pennsy's own classification system.  That so-called A-B-C-D-E wasn't actually that at all; it was a B-C-D-E-F!  So, Ira redid it yet again:

BP40/3Centipede

(17 Apr 2009 images and © 2009 by S. Berliner, III, after R. Ruesch/The Engine Shop- all rights reserved)
[Click on thumbnailed pictures for larger images.]

Ira was really clueless and hopeless at times!

Now, just you wait a cotton-pickin', dog-bone minute, here!  Ira wasn't always all that clueless, after all!  I always knew there was a Shark-nose Centipede!  Iris Ersatz believed me and looked endlessly through the Berlinerwerke files and, sure enough, there it was, PRR #5221, the Sharknosed Centipede:   new (16 Feb 2014)

May both Bob Krone and Raymond Loewy forgive me.

Gawd, she's even more beautiful than I ever expected!


Dr. Leonard has proposed a Pennsy Garratt styled after the Loewy T1; whil(e)(st) brilliant in conception and execution, it leaves me a wee bit uncomfortable in faithfulness to Loewy, so I have taken the liberty of redoing it slightly (at the inner ends of the tanks):

May both Richard and Raymond forgive me.



As always, you know you can count on the BW to find totally-unbelievable info.

More tales follow on the Berlinerwerke Apocrypha Continuation Page 22.

[See also the HO (1:87.1) Berlinerwerke saga or the Z (1:220) Berlinerwerke-Z saga.]

I always wondered at the incredibly tight security at the Berlinerwerke during WWII; now it can be told!  See, for starters, the wild site of Sig Case, Rails to the Stars - Steam in Space, files from the National Aeronautics and Steam Administration and the tie-in to the Berlinerwerke V1 on Apocrypha Page 2.

    LEWELLEN NORTHERN GARRATTS.
    CSXT AC100CBW and NSC CB100W-10 10,000 horsepower locos!
  Also, see the fabled BW DDP45 and other EMD engines EMD may never have dreamed of!


If you like this sort of nonsense, take a gander at Jim Wells' incredible Whitby Locomotive Works; Jim's overall Fantasonics "Model Railroad Magic Website" has become too complex for me to navigate.  Unfortunately, the AW NUTS Magazine, site of the A.W. N.U.T.S. Garden Railway Society is no longer available, nor are Lion Air (I'd be Lion if I didn't warn you to keep your tongue in your cheek on this one!) or D. Dickens' The Patiala State Monorail Tramway site (whooie - and it's for real)!

If you are air-minded (take that as you choose), you must see the Lion Air site!  I'd be Lion if I didn't warn you to keep your tongue in your cheek on this one!

Take your tongue out of your cheek and visit D. Dickens' The Patiala State Monorail Tramway site; whooie (and it's for real)!
