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


Because the BW Apocrypha, RSR Apocrypha, and Guest Apocrypha indices exceeded the capacity of the individual pages and the main Apocrypha index, they are now presented in full on separate pages; the Berlinerwerke Apocrypha Index (including the Guest Apocrypha Index), above, and the RSR Apocrypha Index.


RUHNIAN STATE RAILWAYS
APOCRYPHA

Continued from Ruhnian State Railways Apocrypha Page 4

Because the Ruhnian State Railways (RSR) had so much interaction with the Berlinerwerke, and especially with the BW's George and Ira Ersatz and their sons, George, Jr., and Ira, Jr., I decided to place any new BW-Apocrypha coverage of RSR loks on separate pages.

The RSR, and its cooperative competitor, the Kroplihne Railway (RK), under the successive directorship of Chief Engineers Giorg Maznicek (1839-57), Marek Luršimonš (1857-91), Karel Belčamin (1891-1919), Bela Šahlmeti (1919-29), Frihdrik Tešlov (1929-50 - in exile 39-45), Mikhail Rodnivacek (1950-62), Jochann Ketterik (1962-85), and Artur Gorote (1985-present), has presented to the astonished world some incredible examples of unique and pioneering locomotive design.

Thanks to the generosity of Norman Clubb, proprietor, we are able to show here some of the additional unbelievable adaptations of RSR lok types as developed jointly with the Berlinerwerke.

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

Well, now!  I managed to overwrite this page and the backup got corrupted in the process (27 Jan 09).

We shall see how I can rebuild or retrieve all that priceless apocrypha.

Well, I suppose images alone are better than no material at all.  ;·(


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

{Stay tuned!}

[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.

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)!
