I assume these were the cheapies from Anorak's anonymous. Nearly went for the green 151 myself. I also got some cheap Swiss/FS stuff from the bargain bucket.

Nice tent!

Found a few items at TINGS... a while ago I knocked my Roco box van off the layout onto a hard floor. It didn't bounce well, so I was pleased to find a replacement at Anorak's Anonymous:



From the same stand, a pair of Minitrix car carriers, complete with cars. These were in a bit of a state, and I suspect one (at least) had been under something heavy - on closer inspection, the axleboxes were splayed out. But it runs well enough after a thorough clean. Both needed repairs to the handrails. Will probably add some Oxford VW Beetles - the more recent model cars are so much more detailed than the older ones - assuming they'll fit (does anyone know?!). I really should have tested this at TINGS, especially as on line the same cars are more expensive. Hey-ho.



From N-gauged came this exquisite cement silo wagon, beautifully detailed and as new. Quite a lot of the mixed goods trains in Brian Stephenson's "The Last Steam Locomotives of Western Germany" (my bible - are there any other similarly good books on German railways in the 60s/70s out there?) seem to include one of these:



Having built the Faller single road loco shed a while back, it was looking a little lonely, so a coaling stage seemed inevitable, even if I have cut the width down by a third:



And, finally, I seem to need some of these now!

Haven't taken a picture yet but I have just received my example of the new tooling Fleischmann SBB CFF Re4/4II - Wow!

It has the most delicate part I think I have ever seen on an N gauge loco - namely the moving windscreen wipers...

I think that we need a video clip of the moving wipers ,do you mean they are moving as the loco moves or that you can move them to any position manually,I don't model foreign layouts but think the quality and detail is far superior to our british outline.

I meant that they can be moved to any position manually. I don't know if this is intentional (I might ask the Spur N Schweiz forum when I get time). The problem is that all four are currently sitting in different positions and they are so tiny that I suspect of I move them too many more time they will break.

I suspect I will attempt to hold them in place with a tiny blob of glue - although that carries the risk of ruining an expensive model.

Oh for old fashioned moulded on wipers!

Thanks for letting us know, I thought that actual moving wipers was a bit to much to expect , though the way things are advancing so quickly you never know what comes next. If you compare my original Farish Panier bought for 3,7 shillings and 6 old pennies brand new in the 60s to some of the latest Locos I think the progress is amazing.But some Modelers still complain and want even more.

Hi,
Just to prove how dangerous it can be to casually browse a blog in the 'other place' I frequent...
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
The blog related to something called HO  :hmmm: but it seduced me into spending money in an area I was trying ever-so-much to avoid  :doh:
Anyhoo, there would seem to be some Minitrix coaches in the offing which look suitable to my untrained eye  ???
so I may become a repeat offender  ;)

Regards, Gerry  8)
