  1. During the summer I build a Kitwood Hill turntable. Since they aren't offering their H0 turntable anymore, I modiefied a 0n30 turntable to H0. Markus
  2. Thank you for your reply. Markus
  3. Hello, looks promising. May I aks from which source your buildings are coming from? Markus
  4. I contacted PayPal and the looked into it. After a few days my money was refunded. Markus
  5. Thank you for your reply. Markus
  6. May I ask, from which source the Robin Reliant is coming from? Markus
  7. I have placed an order on June 29th. The money was paid by Paypal the same day. Until now I haven't received the goods, and got no replies. I have send them an email about a week ago and on last thursday, but have received no reply. The Item I've ordered were shown as in stock at the time of ordering. Markus
  8. Since my last update I installed the turnout actuators, and soldered in the feeder and bus wires. Now I only had to solder the wires for the frog polarity to the turnoutfrogs. Today I was able to run the first train at Sorethroat, which I will share with you. I hope you enjoy the film. Markus
  9. Hello, since my last post I continued with laying the track on the seconde fibre board. I had choosen to to these on my workbench, because it is easier for me to do there, than when it is in its final possition. And I think I will continue these method on the rest of the layout. Now I think almost 95% of the track at Sorethroat is laid. Most of it is handlaid, with the exceptions at the engine facility one siding at the background and the lines leading to Sorethroat. For the logging branch I used leftover flextracks from Piko A Gleis, and a Atlas code 100 turnout. The other tracks
  10. Hello, it's been some time since my last update of the layout. I had lost a bit of my modelling mojo, maybe because I started to put in a ceiling in my modelrailway room, it was quite messy. But I managed to film a new update from my model railway room, where I show the new ceiling and some little progress I made during the time. And I will speak about future projects. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_JFaNJTypc Markus
  11. I continued with the gluing down wood ties and laid some of the tracks in the engine shed area. Because I'm using the Atlas turntable I used Flextrack in these area. Markus
  12. Yesterday I glued some ties and three of my four Fasttracks Quickstick Ties for the turnouts on the first station board and laid some of my turnouts that I salvaged from the old layout temporarely in place. Markus
  13. I made some progress on the layout. I installed some additional bracing, and I started withe the roadbed. I put in some raisers to rise the line to the future minig and logging area, and lowerd the line to Sowbelly. Because the Mine is diffuclt to reach, and the circumstances that the turnout to it sits above a joint I decided to use a Atlas Code 100 turnout and some Piko Code 100 Flextrack for the track on the logging/mining line. My first plan was lay almost all the track by hand, except for the curved turnout at Sowbelly and the turnout and crossing which run to the ferry slip at Little Di
  14. Hello, I did some thinking about the trackplan and I wasn't happy with it. In 1992 September Issue of Modelrailroader, there was a trackplan for a proposed layout in a small room called Spokane, Pasco & Wallace. Since I saw these trackplan in the 90s I tried to plan a layout based on these plan. Over the years these plan was stored in the backs of my brain, but during the last weeks it reemerged. So I got back to the drawingboard (in my case Anyrail). I changed the overall layout of the plan to the settings of my layout room and the N gauge layout beyond the H0 layout. At
  15. Hello David, thank you for the picture. But in the plans there seems to be a platform at the stationbuilding end. Markus
  16. During the late December and early January, I built a wagonturntable from scratch, using 1mm and 0.5mm styrene sheet, some rail offcuts, superglue and plastic cement. In these Youtube tutorial I will show you the way I did it. During the filming I had some probleme with the autofocus of my camera, and I have to improve how to position the camera. The turntable is built for my 009 layout, but the method could be used for other gauges and scales. In the past I have built a similar wagonturntable for my N gauge layout. Markus
  17. Hello, during the christmas time and the first weekends in January a friend of mine held the so called Silvester Layout operating session during that time. The time period is set to 1919 just before the founding of the DRG (Deutsch Reichsbahn Gesellschaft, Impirial German Railway Society). Most of the layout is assembled with modules built to the FREMO N-RE standards. Enjoy the video. Markus
  18. Hello, today I uploaded the December update on Youtube. During the last few months I hadn't done much on my layout projects. But last October I and some friends spend a weekend in Berlin to build more than 20 curved modules to the FREMO N-RE standards. After these I spend a few days in the Harz mountain region and did a trip from Gernrode to Wernigerrode on the HSB. Markus
  19. Hello, I'm using the Caboose Industries N gauge ground throws on my 009 modular layout. I'm using Caboose Industries 224S which are the ones with the integrated electrical switch for frog polarisation. I made a picture of it. Markus
  20. Hello, it's been some time since my last update on my G&D plan. Due to the housemove last year I had to scrap the beginnings of my Sorethroat Branchline Mk2 layout. I was only able to start tracklaying in the fiddle yard. But now with some time gone I started on planing the new version. The new layout should be a homage to John Allens layout. But with less space, I don't want to copy his layout. So I set my layout further north. So in the Northern Californian or Oregon area. My room is roughly 4x4 meters. And the intended layout is placed over my current british N scale modular layout.
  21. Hello Martin, a member of our german british railway forum recently turned up with these link. Maybe these could be of interest for you. Markus
  22. Hello Martin, regarding the humidity in your shed, maybe you could use a chemical dehumidifier. I've been using these in my modelrailway room in the basement. I'm using one similar to these one https://www.amazon.co.uk/500ml-Interior-Dehumidifiers-Acting-Crystals/dp/B075KNTRTL/ref=sr_1_52?crid=1D48L8MJ0Q70W&keywords=dehumidifiers&qid=1572423503&sprefix=dehum%2Caps%2C156&sr=8-52 In Germany they look a bit different https://www.amazon.de/Sichler-Haushaltsgeräte-Luftentfeuchter-Raumentfeuchter-Wiederverwendbare/dp/B075CS1TX8/re
  23. Thank you for your answer, so the wall thickness is about 3mm. For rolling out the DAS clay. Are you using some 1mm thick sticks as a height gauge for the rolling pin? Markus
  24. Hello, may I ask what material you have used for the walls of your destillery? Markus
  25. Hello, I've got another question regarding finetrax. Are there any rail joiners available? I haven't found them on their website. Markus
