Hello again!

 

A little addition...

 

Here, too, I installed my own uncouplers. You can see how these work in the picture...

(Picture is from the Layout "Paulhausen-Ost")

And here is a video where you can see how I operate the Uncouplers

Best regards, Thomas

I very like the different industrial fascades you made from parts of the Auhagen Baukastensystem. That Auhagen product has indeed a lot of capabilities.

This is an excellent project and I will be looking closely at your operating system for a future layout of my own. Thanks for posting it!

Hello everybody!

 

@ Kevin, Joern and Steve:

Thank you for your nice comments, I was very happy about that!

 

After thinking hard and trying it out, I decided to dispense with a (makeshift-) Platform.

That would be too much ...

But what happens now if the dice shows a "5"?

Now this means that a locomotive change is taking place! If a car is in position D, it is shunted to its corresponding position (A, B or C) by the new locomotive. The car standing there is removed to the Fiddleyard.

 

I would like to end the post with a picture.

It is planned to show a fire brigade practice with the aerial ladder on the right-hand building...

Hi!
And here is some progress again...

 

On the background I painted clouds and mountains / hills.

I made a ramp for the warehouse myself. There are matching ones from Auhagen, but their depth didn't fit, and besides, I didn't find them really nice...

I wish you all a good start in the new week!

Best regards, ThomasG

Your layout build is progressing nicely Thomas.

Hi! 
Thanks a lot Kevin!

 

 

Hi everybody!
There‘s a bit progress again...


I stuck sandpaper everywhere on the still free areas, the white edges won't be visible after ballasting.

The houses and the walls between them were fortified, a door was added to one wall...

This is amazing and inspiring work, especially as interested in building their own micro-layout with some DB shunting locos (though I'm a little stuck on rolling stock!). I love your use of scenic break too.

Hello!

 

Thanks for the nice comments!

 

Well, my locomotives have certain good driving behavior also because of digital technology. I appreciate slow starting and braking, and also a continuous speed...


 

The whole thing is slowly taking shape, compare the scene (picture above) with the fire fighters:

Best regards, stay safe and have a nice weekend!

Hi Thomas,

a very nice little layout you have here! Thanks for posting. Will follow your progress with interest.

 

By the way: could you just tell us which kind of locomotive you have (baureihe, manufacturer,,,). Only one? Additions planned?

 

Regards

Armin

Hi Armin!

 

Thanks for your nice comment!

Fortunately I´ve not only one locomotive...:D

loks-1qqkts.jpeg

(from left to right) Maerklin BR 98.3 - Maerklin Baden steam railcar "Kittel" - Trix BR 98.4-5 - Maerklin BR 89.70-75

These four are my absolute favorites...:heart_mini:

 

loks-2smjiv.jpeg

Maerklin BR 74 - Maerklin BR 75 (Swabian T 5)

These two are actually too big for the micro layout, and almost only run on my other layout (Paulhausen-Ost) - Photos were taken there...

 

loks-3ypj22.jpeg

Maerklin V36, my only diesel - Liliput Steam storage locomotive

 

There are also a few older locos I normaly don´t use any more.

 

Best regards, Thomas

Hello everybody!:)

 

It went on again...

 

First a video from the Trix series 98.4-5 (converted to AC), finally my brother installed a decoder. This locomotive is one of my favorites - it looks extremely beautiful:heart_mini:, but is also very important to me for another reason: Here in my hometown, locomotives of this series were actually stationed until around the mid-30s.

 

 

Then two more pictures of the progress:

 

The gap to the background at the back left has been closed.

I aged/weathered the roofs and added gutters and downspouts.

I wish you a good start into the new week, stay safe & best regards!
