A big word of thanks goes out to Barrie Haigh, from the N Gauge Facebook page, for servicing and repairing ten of my locos for Remagen.

This collection of Br41's, 44's, 50's & 52's had been picked up second hand over a number of years and had suffered various levels of use and abuse in their previous lives. Under my ownership, they'd spent most of it sat in the stock draw with hardly any running. All were in dire need of a service, clean, oil, including removal of the paint from the pickups and contacts which is added while reprinting the bodies.

Barrie has done an excellent job getting all ten up and running despite some pretty horrendous wear on one of the 41's and 50's.

Sadly the video clip doesn't seem to work.  :(

It did for me - I clicked on the little box and it downloaded a Quicktime video to my desktop.

Eurythmics?

Cheers Jon  :)

It is in deed the voice of Anne Lennox...  :thumbsup:

The gun carriage part of the K5 Train is just about complete. Just the final touch of weathering and other small details to complete. I'm really please with the way this has turned out. It should look pretty good being hauled along by a BR52.

These area few shots of the gun and associated wagons in travel mode sat on the western bridge approach.

More green stuff happening this afternoon with the rear of the baseboard (right hand side in the photo) getting some attention.

The grass and shrubbery are done, and tree planting has commenced. 38 so far, and maybe that number again to finish off that side

Also a New set arrival on Remagen today. I picked up this loco as a non-runner for a tenner. It's had its motor and pick-ups removed and is a dummy loco for double heading.

The Fleischmann BR50 has been part converted to a BR50uk. It still needs a bit more work on the boiler and the footplate to finish it off, but it's sufficiently along to be ready for train duty.

Out of interest, what was the difference between the BR50 and the BR50uk?

The standard BR50 came into service in 1939 as a replacement to the 0-10-0 BR57. In 1941 austerity measures saw a simplification of the design. These where know as BR50uk.
In 1942 more economic measure to save materials, man hours and costs saw further changes to the design with these locos being redesignated BR52.

The scenery continues to move forward the back baseboard edge, right hand side of the photo, almost complete.

More scenery progress today. It seems to have been a good week for it.

I've progressed onto the middle area after the junction. Here a company of Panthers and Hanomags will be taking time out for repair and maintenance.

Trial positioning of the vehicles before the ground is reproduced to suit.
