  1. Found this picture on the internet, doesn't look like there's much room to move the wheels out. https://www.catawiki.com/l/43418895-roco-h0-33298-diesel-locomotive-br-2095-obb#&gid=1&pid=24 Brian
  2. HRF Modellbahn-Atelier used to sell steel sleepered H0m track either complete or just the sleeper strip, but if I've read it correctly they have decided to close down. https://www.h-r-f.com/ Although the parts are still listed https://www.h-r-f.com/schienen.html Brian
  3. I think the sleepers are referred to as "Y-Stahlschwellen" This chap appears to sell/make some but at 65 or so Euros per metre https://www.weichen-walter.de/ww-onlineshop/product_info.php?products_id=180&language=en Brian
  4. The closest I can find for 27 is loco No 141 of the Hohenzollerischen Landesbahn in Baden-Württemberg. This is the only photo I've found of an ELNA 2 with a number on the side of the smokebox (top right in the first group of pictures) https://www.eisenbahnlehrpfad.de/lokomotiven/ " Locomotive 141, a triple-coupled standard locomotive (axle arrangement 1 C) built according to the guidelines of the Engerer Lokomotiv-Norm-Kommission (ELNA), was acquired in 1929 from the bankruptcy estate of Hohenzollern AG Düsseldorf. It was quite economical and was only scrapped in 1965 a
  5. 27 looks similar to an ELNA 2, a series of 1'C built around 1941 by Henschel. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/ELNA https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/ELNA_2 Translation "ELNA 2 is the name of a series of tank locomotives that were built according to the ELNA standards. The ELNA 2 have a 1'C axis arrangement. They are designed for light route service. With their output of 368 kW, they reach a top speed of 50 km / h. At least 37 locomotives of this type have been built for various private railways, most of them in the superheated steam version. Most
  6. Or from Screwfix £7.49 https://www.screwfix.com/p/lap-mas830b-digital-multimeter-600v/75337 Brian
  7. There's another live feed that is zoomed in a bit more https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aNc8iVY-r8 Brian
  8. Here's a drawing of the original track arrangment around Alp Grum, I was going to scan it out of a book I have, but like so many things it's already available on the internet. Google got you pretty close, the radius was 45 m Brian

    RhB news

    The poster of this video has a few more on YouTube. There is one taken in May of Pontresina to Scuol/Tarasp. Really excellent video. It shows the Samedan to Bever double tracking is in use, but there is only a single track through Bever itself because of the station rebuild. I was surprised to find that Sagliains station has been rebuilt further East, much further and they could have done away with Lavin. Looks like the only benefits are longer platforms and a longer siding possibly for shuttle trains. https://map.geo.admin.ch/?lang=en&topic=ech&bgLayer=ch.swis

    RhB news

    I sometimes like to do the odd jigsaw puzzle, one contributor to the site I use often posts a RhB picture. His/her latest offering on Sunday was a picture of 602 passing the Glacier Express at Valendas-Sagogn on August 1st. Presumably the picture must have been taken shortly before the accident, weather was bright and sunny, so possibly the mudslide was caused by a sudden deluge. Here's the picture, need to do the puzzle first https://www.jigsawplanet.com/?rc=play&pid=1604e0507305 Brian
  11. I bought a DZt way back in 1983 or 1985 on a visit to Interlaken when I was modelling in N gauge. Apart from the wheels it also ran a bit on the high side. This is fairly easy to remedy by removing material from the bogie pivot, can't remember now if it was on the bogie itself or on the body moulding. Brian

    There are some interesting photos of the new Valser containers/trains on this forum :- https://www.modell-bahn.ch/forum/index.php?thread/7790-neue-werbepritschen-bei-der-rhb-valser/ I notice depending upon which type of wagon the containers are attached to some sit higher than others. I presume at the moment they are still being loaded using pallet trucks, but the height difference must cause problems. Brian
  13. Take a look at the range of strip wood sold by Hobbies and Hobby's (different companies) https://www.hobbies.co.uk/materials/wood#q=pageitems.44 https://hobby.uk.com/materials/wood.html Brian
  14. The bypass is shown in dotted on the Swiss Maps site https://map.geo.admin.ch/?lang=en&topic=ech&bgLayer=ch.swisstopo.pixelkarte-farbe&layers=ch.swisstopo.zeitreihen,ch.bfs.gebaeude_wohnungs_register,ch.bav.haltestellen-oev,ch.swisstopo.swisstlm3d-wanderwege&layers_opacity=1,1,1,0.8&layers_visibility=false,false,false,false&layers_timestamp=18641231,,,&E=2633047.33&N=1168575.73&zoom=10 Brian
  15. I think the problem here is caused by the use of a mold release agent, which is of an oily nature, used in manufacture. You need a solvent or detergent solution to remove it or use a paint which contains a solvent. I've always used enamel paints which are oil based and contain a solvent for painting track and never had a problem. Acrylic paints do vary, some are water based and others like Tamiya have the addition of a solvent like IPA. To answer Philou's question, it's always a good idea to wash a plastic kit in a detergent solution before painting. Brian
