and 7381 (Series 151) with coaches

the homogenous turkis/beige of all your stock looks fab. That said, the 151 really needs a a set of wagons to pull as the 151s are essentially freight locos. 151s are one of my favourite world locomotives, and IMO looked best in turkis/beige

... BR65 ... BR85 and they are very similar In my view

That's not a surprise as all the DRG-era steam locomotives had a similar appearance'

The German 'standard locomotive' (Einheitslokomotive) was the name given to standard classes of German steam locomotives (the Einheitsdampflokomotiven) built from 1925, following the creation of the Deutsche Reichsbahn Gesellschaft to replace the former state railways such as Prussian and Bavarian.

Under a laudable policy, they used common designs standards and were built with standard design features and generally produced in large batches, often by several different manufacturer

Post war DB perpetuated this policy with standardised electric locos sharing parts and design features such as the 110 and 140.

Thanks Gordon,

Although a have seen a few pulling passenger coaches the majority was freight as you say. Most of the time they were class 141 and 110 and the odd 111 pulling the trains.

I can remember traveling on these and leaning out of the window in long bents trying to count the number of coaches….  ;D

I don't have any freight stock left as it all got lost some years ago. I will be buying some hoppers if the pop up at the right price. I need some track first to make a new layout….

Hi Gordon & Raymond, I am afraid i do not know all the fine Details of most of these Loks but I am learning slowly. I used to live In many places in Germany In my Childhood & then In Berlin & Saarbrucken In my working life I was very lucky In Berlin The Taxi Driver who picked us up everyday was a big fan of German Railways and when he found out I liked German trains he took me to a lot of the  Model shops in West Berlin, Also I lived In Wetter and the REME Mess was right opposite the train so i used to watch them from the Snooker room window. Those were the days

Hi Babs,

We used to go on the overnight train on the way to our holiday destination in Yugoslavia. Probably done the trip about 30 times back then and  I remember that every station we stopped for more than 10 minutes on the way in both Germany and Austria had a display of either Minitrix or Fleischmann in the main hall.

The end station was Villach HBF (Austria) and we always had to wait 4 hours for the next train to take us to Jesenice (Yugoslavia). We used to go into town and there was this almighty big model shop that had about everything in!

Also remember getting off the train in Emmerich where they have to swap loco's from NS (Dutch) to DB (German), running to the front to watch them changeover. Then running like mad to not miss the train…  ;D

They also used to add/remove carriages during the trip which was rather awkward when you was going for a walk through the train and had to run back to your cabin..  :no:

Thank you everyone I cannot claim I did all of it and the reasons why was I was In Hospital for surgery on the other side of the world and had to stay 2 months and my nice friend who did the Electrics so it was ready when i came back as i could not get around for nearly 6 months after I came back. It will be moved to the room upstairs and I will be making some alterations to It Ie removing the uncouplers on the 4 loops and then i will put some signals and maybe a small amount of Automation. & then when it is in its permanent place i will do the scenics.
Food for thought Babs

A very good looking layout you have there Babz, it will give you plenty of scope for scenics and I hope you keep us up to date with your automation  :thumbsup:

cheers John.

The power of being a moderator has its benefits.   :)

All I did was post the bit from the start of the "http through to ....mp4" bit as a direct link without any tags, just the whole text string and as it starts with http it automatically becomes a hyperlink.
