Very well done, it's been a while since I've looked in and you've made some solid and excellent progress.
Good luck with the trees  :goggleeyes: they'll keep you busy for a while.

Keep it coming.

Marty

Its been a slow start to the year, but finally got some time on Remagen this weekend.
The priority over the next couple of months is to get a running layout so been pushing ahead with more track laying and wiring.
Today all the scenic section point motors were installed and operational. Just the hidden sidings under the Apollinariskirche to complete the job.

On the scenic side of things, the vehicles for the supply convoy are painted.

Some long over due update photos.

A BR50 exits the Erpeler Ley tunnel at the head of a train of Panther tanks passes a Red Cross train pulled by a war wary Dutch BR38 heading east over the bridge. While beneath then, on the East Rhine Railway, a BR39 with protective flak wagons and pusher wagons waits for signal clearance before heading south.

Can I ask what that is on the road at the right hand side of the third photo? It looks suspiciously to me as if one of Paul Price's elephants has escaped onto your layout :goggleeyes:

Maybe the Luftwaffe are using the elephant to manoeuvre their 88mm anti-aircraft guns to save on diesel fuel? 8-)
