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 12

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.


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 (the BW Apocrypha) started with a secret project that is still unfinished and the next major development of the Berlinerwerke was their fabled DDP45:

APOCRYPHA

Continued from Ruhnian State Railways Apocrypha Page 13

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., and grand-daughter/neice, Iris Ersatz, 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 by the Berlinerwerke.  However, it should be strictly noted that the material presented on these pages is in no way reflective of the work or opinions of the RSR or its management, nor does it enjoy their unconditional endorsement (to put it mildly!).


RSR/Beyer-Peacock/Berlinerwerke Class Class 115ŠA 2-5-2+2-5-2 (4-10-4+4-10-4) 4-Cylinder Shay Locomotive

Back in 2006, the BW reworked an RSR Beyer-Peacock Class 115a Beyer-Garrett 2-5-1+1-5-2 (4-10-2+2-10-4) for heavy goods working on steep grades and stiff curvature by moving the boiler to the left and fitting a huge 4-cylinder Shay engine to create the RSR/Beyer-Peacock/Berlinerwerke Class 115Š Beyer-Garrett Šay (Shay), as originally reported on BW Apocrypha page 11.  Well, in one of her frequent forays into the RSR archives at Bevice-Akohniše, Iris Ersatz discovered notes indicating that the the huge 4-cylinder Shay engine with the four WABCO #5026 cross-compound air pumps added along the right side to balance the giant boiler offset to the left weighed too much; the axle loading on the inner pony trucks/bogies exceeded RSR limits,  The notes showed clearly that a fix had been worked up; that was all the clue Iris needed to start an extensive search for drawings.

Well, eventually, she found one; the lok had been stretched and fitted with four-wheel inner trucks/bogies, resulting in the 2-5-2+2-5-2 (4-10-4+4-10-4) Class 115ŠA:

Iris's next trick will be to see if a 115ŠA survived.  If so, wouldn't it be neat to see it restored to steam?



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

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)!
