Stop it!  Just when I'd convinced myself I can't have one, I'm wavering again!

I don't think you'd regret it Nick. And who can resist free sweets(!)? :D

Joking apart, Nick, with your modelling skills a model of the RübelandBahn would no doubt be rather good.
When I passed by a few years ago I was amazed by the modernised stock being used to service the still very active Hornberg lime quarries and works , but also that there were still quirks to the operation of various sidings and loading areas. With careful arrangement you could probably pull off a 'multi-era sequence ' depiction of the area, from DR maroon era through to today.

Took delivery last week of this little beauty, an Re 460 from Trix. This is an image off the www, but mine, an 'as new' used item  :hmmm: from 2002, looks just the same and I'm feeling lazy. :)




Runs a treat and in fine condition.

I'll maybe post an image of it later with my other 460's in the frame too.

OK, so I know I started a separate thread on these bargain beasties, but here they are: my pair of OBB 1046 locos brand new from Amazon, for which I paid £29 for one and £39 for the one I actually got on ebay via an Amazon reseller (and without whom I wouldn't have realised Amazon were knocking them out for a few days at such a stupidly low price   :D )  Current amazon price now £142.  :laugh:

Two for the price of half of one! Now why can't I buy 460's at that price?

Great buy Nick. :thumbsup:

I must look at eBay more - but keep my wits about me. ;)

A couple of new arrivals. First up, a pair of Fleischmann Omm 51 side tipping Muldenkippwagen in Epoch 3b livery. In the photo, the one on the right is the new Epoch 3b one, compared to the Epoch 4 ones released last year. I do like the black frames; but of marginally more interest is that the Epoch 3 wagon differs slightly from the Epoch 4 version as the latter has a veranda at one end whereas in Epoch 3 the poor old shunter presumably had to stand on the buffers to reach the hand wheel.



Secondly, a Minitrix Lbgjs 598 container carrying wagon. This is one of a number of such models that Minitrix are releasing this year, although two will come as a pair (I think for club members, but they seem to be on general sale as well).

Very interesting and intricate looking wagons, Bruce. I take it the second wagon is carrying beer barrels?

The second wagon is indeed carrying beer containers. From what I can see, there were/are at least three different kinds of container; a rectangular box, under the "Von Haus zu Haus" (from house to house) brand, which enabled less than wagon load quantities to be carried modelled by Fleischmann (se picture below), liquid containers such as these and dry powder containers, which are the subject of a forthcoming model by Minitrix on the same wagon chassis. I particularly like wagons that are a bit different to what we'd typically see on UK railways.

For those in the Birmingham area, that reminds me of the Davenports brewery TV adverts in the 70s :

"Beer at home means Davenports, why collect, we'll deliver"

Sorry, 1st one's Japanese.

Ah, you've fallen foul of the photobucket account changes then!   Might as well just upload your photos to the forum.

I thought that it was about time that I got involved with this thread instead of lurking in the background admiring other people’s goodies.
On hearing that Rocky Rail were pulling out of the N Scale market and having been a fan of their intermodal wagons for many years I decided that I should give one of their Alston Prima locomotives a try. My decision was made even easier by the fact that many of the German shops that I normally deal with are selling off their stocks of Rocky Rail locos at discounted prices.
I chose loco 437051 because it is one of the ones that visits Switzerland and because I like the SNCF Fret livery that it carries.
I was particularly impressed with the way it ran straight out of the box. Very quiet, smooth and with excellent slow speed control.  Detail is good with such things as separate handrails and a reasonable representation of the three different types of pantograph although they are a little on the heavy side. Separate cab mirrors are provided for self-fitting together with alternative platforms/cab steps should you have the luxury of curves greater than 380mm on your layout.
I am very pleased with my purchase and I think Rocky Rail will be sadly missed.
