  1. I think they were 3s too. There is actually an exhibit at the DB museum in Nuremberg showing the different nose profiles but I missed photographing it. The Brussels-Frankfurt run always seems to be an ICE 3 and feels very fast indeed.
  2. Over the past couple of weeks I have been away on a vaguely circular tour of Europe. This was my itinerary: 29 May – Home (near Reading) to Cologne by train via London and Brussels 30 May – Cologne-Sarajevo on German Wings, 3 nights in Sarajevo 2 June – Train from Sarajevo to Zagreb 3 June – Overnight train from Zagreb to Munich 4 June - Morning train from Munich to Nuremberg, 3 nights in Nuremberg 7 June – Train to Ulm, 2 nights in Ulm 8 June – daytrip to Friedrichshafen 9 June – train from Ulm to home. I plan to use this thread for my train pictures and to inflict the rest of my holiday snaps on Wheeltappers The undercroft St Pancras, departure point for Eurostar Eurostar standard class interior One of the new Eurostar sets was standing ina yard near Brussels but unfortunately I didn't photograph it. I did take a few pictures at Brussels Midi though. Nothing very exciting but I can post if anyone is interested. Belgian railway poster at Brussels Midi. No idea what it's about but I thought it was fun My ICE from Brussels to Cologne ICE 2nd class interior I spent the night in Cologne which gave me a chance to photograph the iconic Hohenzollerrn Brucke. Nowadays it is a major site for love locks - couples attach them to structures (normally bridges) to symbolise their love for each other. S-Bahn train on the bridge Grafitti on the bridge ICE at Cologne Hauptbahnhof Again I have more pictures of Cologne if anyone wants, nothing all that exciting though.
  3. Photos taken over the past couple of weeks, a rather multi-national selection PW crew at Brussels Midi Shunters Zagreb Wheeltapper Zagreb Coupling up Volinja Station master somewhere in Bosnia War memorial for railway staff, somewhere in Bosnia
  4. No worries. It wouldn't have been my first unintelligible post
  5. I very much enjoyed the show - great mix of layouts, all of which were worth going to see. The catering was a bit of an issue - lack of seating and cake but it wasn't too bad and I presume it is out of the club's control. I did think there were fewer layouts than last year, which was a disappointment, but I suspect that was the result of having a number of big uns. Trade wise, I would not like to see the current traders sacrificed for box shifters - though I think having a box shifter there is a good thing.
  6. I've been eagerly awaiting the Austrian pics. And they were well worth waiting for.
  7. I've had no problems with scenic materials (in the hold) or rolling stock (in hand luggage, I put it in a tray on it's own for security where it rather alarmed the x-ray checker but otherwise attracted no comment). I would think that tools would be fine in the hold.
  8. How close is the statue going to be to platform 9 3/4s? It'll probably end up wearing a Gryffindor scarf which might otherwise have gone on the duck.
  9. That's a really nice looking layout. I love your loco shed
  10. Even if the layout doesn't appear in a magazine there would appear to be a considerable audience for an article about its legs
  11. It looks like an enraged duck
