The trams look like Duewag GT8Z and yes, they were built as "Einrichtungs - Gelenktriebwagen" so for single direction traffic.

I have seen the new ones in service a few years (2012) ago, but do not remember if they are single direction or not.

Google maps shows the return loop after the Igls station.

Vecchio

I believe the 6 route from Igls to Innsbruck originally ran around the city centre loop but the current map shows it terminating at Bergisel to connect with route 1 to/from the city centre.

Both routes 1 & 3 have loops each end but the Igls route now seems to terminate at a straight line in Klostergasse in route 1's return loop:

C11411 - interestingly shaped capital I on Isolatoren, looking for all the world like a J to an English speaker.

Compare this sample of German handwriting: https://de.wikipedia...er_DDR_1958.png

and other Sütterlin-type handwriting samples.

Looking at the very similar DIN 1451 narrow font, I wonder if the signmaker used a J by mistake, based on their own handwriting?

 

Edit: correct spelling with an "I" photographed here: https://gnadlib.word.../08/03/warnung/

and another "J" spelling for sale here: http://www.email-sch...ail.php?seite=8

("email" being German for "enamel")

Superb, from back in the days before everything was boring TGVs. Can't say I like the look of the 9200/9300/16000/25200 family though - I'm more of a Nez-cassé fan.

Nice to see more SNCF trains. Are you sure you've recorded the two trains Calais/Boulogne the correct way round? The train on the left has a carriage board marked Amiens-Boulogne.

They are dad's photos, I just took the details from his notes, they could well be the wrong way round.

I have this sudden craving for a sound fitted Class 1161! Lots of clunking, grinding and whirring - Marvellous.

I have this sudden craving for a sound fitted Class 1161! Lots of clunking, grinding and whirring - Marvellous.

 

There are 1161 models from Roco (was a platinum edition a few years (11?) ago, looks like one after I changed all the handrails from plastic to brass wire....) and there is a newer one but 1062 (which was a follow up of the 1161) from Jaegerndorfer. The sound you find at AMW Huebsch under premium sound - it is suggested to purchase also a Zimo decoder with it but Arnolds prices are good. I think the Jaegerndorfer version comes also with an ESU sounddecoder on board if needed.

 

So there is no excuse to have some clunking, grinding and not to forget the characteristic sound of the compressed air switch - on your layout....

And: should you go for an overhead wire - this engine is a nightmare as it has a central and rather narrow pantograph. If the wires are good for this engine all others will work perfectly. Therefore I use my 1161 for catenary wire set-up...

 

Found a picture of my 1161 model on my old Italian/Austrian layout

Disentis could be a nice model project. I like the station building directly followed by a goods shed and under C11168 Dave made the perfect picture for the background....

It's worth noting that virtually all of the RhB Ge 4/4' series have been withdrawn and most of those scrapped, while the oldest series of Ge 4/4" (1973: 611-620) are in the process of being retired with the later 1984 series (621-633) are being retained for the time being. As these loco's are now reaching their technical 'end-of-life' phase the RhB is replacing them with EMU's like the Allegra. The RhB did have push-pull sets before, ABe 4/4 511-516 with respective trailers and intermediate cars, these were in essence of the 'loco-and-control-cab' system. The new crop of motive power on the RhB are true EMU's, which cannot be expanded by adding an intermediate car like the aforementioned 511 series. The 1990's Vereina-lok series (Ge 4/4''' 641-45 (1993) 646-648 (1994) 649-652 (1997)) will be operational for some time to come. Their main work will comprise of the Vereina-shuttle service (for which the series was originally ordered before the RhB used all 9 in regular service trains and had to order 3 more) and the Glacier Express trains between St. Moritz and Disentis.

 

@Vecchio: I've actually been planning to build this station (in its current guise) for almost 2 decades, as part of our modular club layout, but my wood-working skills leave a lot to be desired, with severe financial constraints thrown in as well now :rolleyes: :(

C10510 shows the freight yard. It also shows how cramped the site of Göschenen station actually is: that's a stream between it and the passenger station. In earlier days said freight yard was used to transship goods from SG into NG wagons to be carried up the Schöllenen gorge to Andermatt and beyond. Nowadays, as the roads in the Alps are considerably better, freight for that valley goes by HGV.

 

Typo on C10530: FO 91 is of the Deh type, 2nd generation to be exact ;)  (Deh meaning: luggage vehicle (D), electrically powered (e), with powered rack equipment (h))

C10530 / C10532 - for anyone contemplating a visit, the Göschenen-Andermatt train goes up that gorge (Schöllenen) on the right of the picture - extraordinarily steep, with a waterfall at the top as the train comes out of a tunnel in a sheer rock face.
