Kato RhB WR 3822 Restaurant (same as announced by Pirata) ready for the hard work. The 'Kitchen' window isn't the right size but it was what was available from the AB build. I will apply two small access doors on the kitchen end after the paint is stripped.





Another Kato part which fits.



And now we can sit and watch how Kato will announce these cars (AB, Restaurant) on Friday   ;)

I know this is not exactly the place but I have been wondering about a "generic" RhB flat in the manner of Pirata but perhaps resin off a plastic master or perhaps a 3D one if anybody can make one fine enough. The kit could come with both styles of staunchens, singles or doubles and those odd "sideboards". The bogies could be narrow enough to accept Fox Valley 33" wheels on 0.559" axles and be fitted with both adaptors for Rapido/Kato couplings and  MT 1015 couplings; cut off the one you don't need. A sheet of decals covering them and other common RhB vehicles?

It's just a pre-Christmas thought but an expensive assembled and painted etched generic flat just does no do it for me. A 3 wagon consist would be 240 + postage.

Could it be "Crowd Funded" I wonder as an RTR?

Cheers,

Mike Beard.

In addition to Ge4/4II as  618 and 623...

...a quote from 1zu160 web site:

The catalog also indicates that, based on customer suggestions, further models are being used for the Rhaetian Railway. A picture collage shows a number of different models and also some freight car variants. Announcements will be made at a later date.

For the promised 618 and 623 - for those interested in topicality and accurate era operation:

618 has now lost the Edelweiss livery - so in the end it was carried for 5 years from 2013 - 2017
623 retains the 125 Jahre livery so has carried it for 6 years so far

Found some time laying around and stripped these two, filled in all the gaps with putty and used some elbow grease to sand them smooth. I'll leave them alone for some days to let the putty cure some more. Will put some more putty on and repeat.
