Haidar DF4C prototypes!

Post by QJ7205 » 02 Feb 2010, 14:15

The same guy who recently released DF4D 0001 and 0489 now announced DF4C's 4001 and 4002...

Those are prototypes, still with the "DF4B look"... (DF4C 4003 was the first with the "rectangular" body shape...)

DF4C 4002: (Shenyang Bureau, Tongliao Depot)

This is what I could figure out:

- These will be brass models!
- The price should be around (?) 1680,- RMB... (If I understood correctly...)
- Only 100 of each will be made...
- Exact release date unknown...

(Personally I wasn't waiting for this, and I would rather see a plastic model of a normal, "rectangular" DF4C released...)

I do not know whether this is still the right thread, but visiting my dealer today, they have now brass DF4C 4002 from HAIDAR on stock. The loco looks like a DF4B (there was none to compare exactly) and is painted in blue (like the pictures above). I didn´t ask for the price, but assume it is the same as DF4B (around 2500.- RMB). The loco looks good although the finish is very matt.

Hi all,

Found this subject to be closest to my question: does anyone know more about the non-standard intake screening on the engine room side walls of the DF4C prototypes (4001, 4002)? I mean the screens highlighted in these pictures:

Some of the later "square" Dalian DF4C have these, too:

The 4001 in its "museum version" no longer has the extra screens, just some rather unusual perforated sheets with visible seams on the top and bottom edges, as though they were welded in afterwards, maybe just to make the loco more presentable for a museum exhibit:

Any hint would be much appreciated - I have two N scale DF4Bs set aside to be rebuilt to an "in-service" version of the 4001-4002 pair at a later time, but will get the extra details produced beforehand as opportunities present themselves.

Cheers,
Zsolt
