slightly o/t, but with modelling in mind - Gordon, what's the story of the trains on the streets at Bad Doberan? that's quite an incredible sight.

The running number on mine is 120-103-7 but the pictures look good either way. I did find the right number though. It was when I was looking for a picture of the Regional Bahn I have.

What a great photo to find, the perfect 'prototype for everything' illustration. It looks to me like there was some sort of procession or event going on, with three trains all in ex-works paintwork AFAICS
 
It shows does several things of massive help to the modeller, namely:

a) there is an ICE with just four intermediate cars - a  pre-series set by the looks of it - in 'train set pack ' formation

b) a Regio set in ex works condition, coaches and loco

c) the 120 - also ex works paint job

d) at the same time there are some well weathered Transwaggon (the Arnold type) in the background.

I just noticed the date in the top left of the picture. 1987.

I was under the impression that the ICE came out in 1989?

Precisely my point. The ICE in the picture is the Experimental set, hence the short formation. The series units followed in 1989

Like the Americas, and Switzerland (among others) Germany had plenty of in road and in street running on railways. Bad Doberan survives due to being located in the DDR (aka 'East Germany") for 35 years.

Various narrow gauge steam lines (famously) survived in the DDR under the communist regime due to low car ownership, expense of importing oil for diesels, low road traffic volumes etc.

Of these lines, almost all were in touristic areas, so have survived post reunification.

Minitrix 12265 Steam Locomotive Class RE 4/4 K.Bay.Sts.B

Something a little different for me is this Bavarian engine. Normally I am firmly in Ep. VI/Era 9 territory, but stream engines do have something so I am thinking of getting the odd Bavarian one to complete the generally Bavarian area trains I run. We will call it part of a 'museum' setup on the layout.

Really nice small engine, better in real life than the images posted by Minitrix. Few technical issues. It is probably worth doing a review at some point if I get some time.

Todays post.

I was a bit sceptical about buying second hand as I'd like things to be perfect. I might buy a few more second hand items from now on....

Bought this of eBay in perfect boxed condition. A Nahverkers-Steuerwagen (Suburban Control Cab) Dubbed as Silberlinge (Silverfish) because of the fish scale look-a-like bodies. I have one of these in Regionalbahn livery already and they're very nice indeed!

10 British pounds  :laugh:













Now close coupled with profi couplings:





Blending in lovely with the crowd  :thumbsup:

Very very nice Babs!!

The Neuffen station is beautiful  8) The Baden Baden too. That's why I bought it too… You'll be surprised hi big it is when build. I am adding another station on my layout which might be Neuffen too. We'll end up with all the same buildings  :hmmm:

What is the goods station you have on your layout?

I'm envious Babs!  Neuffen is top of my list for stations on my little layout, so I can't wait to see it assembled!

HI Raymond, I am sorry I did not Answer your Question about the Goods Shed, If my memory serves me well it was Vollmer but I will hunt for the box to make sure.
Best Regards

Thanks Babs, I think it has the number on the bottom of the kit but not sure tbh.

I've finished putting lights in the Baden station last night. It looks good!

Love to see some pictures when you've completed the Neuffen station.
