Sadly Marco updating on Photobucket now means no more free hosting from them.
As many of us have found, unless we pay for a service from them, all previously hosted photo links are now redundant.
I've told Photobucket 'Goodbye' and in any case always post pictures here directly through the Forum from my iPad or Mac. It's an easy process - and it's free.

Hi all,

I found this nice vid on youtube and thought I'd put it here as sort of relevant.

Hope you enjoy....

Most enjoyable, thanks. :thumbsup:

It did I lead to a small problem though.  :-\. It seems an hour or more of my retirement has just been lost to follow-on YouTube rail videos! :D

Wonderful stuff, thanks for sharing. It just all makes you want to go out and build a european layout, just like the scene from 56 seconds in.....

And this promo film from SNCF in 1957 is a real gem:

I love the opening sequence with the lack of mobile phones, the secretary with a typewriter, and the plethora of suits. Ah, the good old days! :D

These two tables, from an article in  the N Bahn Magazin for March 1991, may be of interest.
I had not realised that the Fleischmann 8166 WRmh132 was a whole 3mm too short, over the buffers at any rate.
A shame, as I believe that this particular version, with the kitchen power supply pantograph on the roof, has only ever been modelled by Fleischmann, at least in N.
This implies that my two Fleischmann 'Quick-Picks' are similarly too short as well.

Interesting tables - any chance you could post the other pages of this article? ;)

I guess Fleischmann mixed up the length over buffers - 27,500 mm - and the length of the carbody - 27,200 mm - as 27,200 / 160 is exactly 170 mm. But does it really matter that the dining cars are a little too short? They are still longer than the other passenger cars. My main complaint with Fleischmann is that they are much too tall - 1.5 mm higher, that is really noticeable! But yes, the Quick-Picks are the same length and thus also too short.

And the WRmh 132 is the one without pantograph - you mean the WRmz 135 (Fleischmann 8162). This was also produced by Minitrix (e.g. 13378 or in the 20-car IC display 15805). But - the Minitrix model is only 165 mm long. :hmmm: (They have just introduced their first 172-mm car - the "Kakadu" half-dining car in the "IC Albrecht Dürer" set 15545 -, so maybe others will follow?)

Best would be if Hornby would make just a new roof with panto for the Arnold WRmh 132. The two types are identical otherwise (except for generators on the 132's bogies but I think Arnold has both bogie types already).

Hi.

If I'm not wrong, few mention have been made to some french TEEs that only run inside french territory. (GscaleBruce, http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=37754.msg448506#msg448506) An example of the missing ones is Le Capitole that linked the 713 Km. between Paris and Toulouse.

In its beginning, at the end of 1960, 1st class DEV Inox coaches, allowed to 160 Km/h, were used, but in the late 70s the Grand Confort coaches, allowed to 200 Km/h, was the usual ones. Some locomotives were dedicated to only this train wearing in its front plates with the specific name of the train.

Recently TRIX is offering a CC6500 Capitole in their second livery, concrete grey instead of silver of the former ones, and also a reissue of the Grand Confort coaches.

Let me introduce to you this new model hauling my old Grand Confort coaches. I know, the lighting with the original Minitrix bars is not perfect, but I expect to solve the flickering with some capacitor.

Thanks for posting. I'm resisting the CC6500 for a number of reasons, partly because it says "Capitole" rather than "Aquitaine" or "Etendard" (easily fixed, I know), but mainly because it's a Minitrix loco. Like almost all new Minitrix locos, it come with a mandatory but in my case unwanted decoder. My experience of one such (new) loco means I won't buy another because the decoder wrecks the performance on analogue. I'll still enjoy pictures of other people's Minitrix locos, though!
