Progress on the villa has come to a premature halt due to lack of window. With luck, I hope to pick up a couple of packs at Ally Pally this weekend.

Just got back from Ally Pally with the latestaddition to the fleet - Roco ET90 electric railcar.

 This will be going under the knife for some serious work to turn it into an armoured diesel railcar.

Thanks for the photos on Panzertrieibwagon 15. Very helpful.

My freelancer version has progressed well. The major surgery is done and it's had a fresh paint job. I've test run it and it's quite noisy so a good service using order.
Next job would be to finish off the two pusher wagons. I'm in two minds whether to 20mm cannons to these are leave them as infantry wagons with MG42's. I'll probably do a mock up of both before I decide.

Some progress on the final scenic board today.

The frame for the fixed section is in along with the bed for the Bonn - Koblenz road and rail line.
The Apollinaris church will sit on the lift-out section and has been positioned.
The frame for the lift-out section is the next job to do.

The final scenic board is progressing nicely. The frame for the lift out section is done and the cork underlay is down ready for the final bit of track to go down.
There's a couple bits of roadway base to go down and then it's on to landscaping.

That's an impressive gradient  :)

All my Reichsbahn stuff is packed away in stock boxes so I was using the 47 to do a bit of test running.

With the landscaping due to start on the church board, I need to sort out a new tunnel portal or the high level track. I came across this at the weekend. It looks like it'll fit and look the part. Time to get the PCV card out and knock up the basic structure.

Built in 1909, it’s the right era as well. It should look the part. It’s a good job the early railway engineers anticipated that we would be running electric trains and allowed the necessary headroom in the tunnel. As a matter of interest, where is it.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

The Tauern Railway Tunnel (German: Tauerntunnel) in Austria is the longest tunnel of the Tauern Railway crossing the main chain of the Alps. Currently, it has a length of 8.371 kilometres (5.201 mi). The highest point of the tunnel, which is also the highest point in all of the railway line, is at 1,226 metres (4,022 ft) above sea level. The tunnel's north entrance is at Böckstein in the valley of Bad Gastein in the state of Salzburg, the south entrance near Mallnitz in Carinthia.  The picture is of the South Portal.  (Extract from Wikipedia)
