thanks to some probably conspirative action (but not mine
) the wagons made their short cut to Germany and I happily received them from the post office this morning.
To give evidence they are really in Germany I showed them the next Biergarten first, however no one is having their beers
there at the moment since the weather is not as one could expect in an average July.
Before taking them to the meeting next weekend I decided to give them a run on Sarnau, my previous roundy-roundy running-in layout. Unsurprisingly, they do not like S-curves in radius 1, but no problems on the outer loop.
Afterwards they caused some trouble at the year 50's goods yard where no one of the staff had an idea how to unload them and so they were quickly pulled out by an 08 again. However this won't be a problem on the exhibition since operation will be focussed on stock 1985 onwards I assume they'll make a perfect fit.
More pics to follow soon!
