No worries. Hijack away. Think the 'Continental' folk are more interested in Swiss and German anyway.

Mas vino para nuestros (or is it por nuestros).

Gracias y salud,

I use para, but my Spanish was learnt on the streets. I've never studied it. Oh, it's nosotros (us). Nuestros is ours. Class over!!

Hola Brian,

I did edit the 'us' word before your reply but only by 4 minutes. It is para although I know Spanish people who don't know when to use para or por.

Have been having a tidy up of the guest bedroom as having guests soon. Unfortunately it means more boxes in the train room so lots more clutter but still hope to do some pics over the Weekend. However, I did find my old O Level Spanish book from school (with NOT TO BE REMOVED FROM ******** SCHOOL on the front  :), used to steal anything in those days  :D  :no:) so might start another hobby and refresh my memory.

Will try to get my own thread 'ON Topic' soon.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Hola,

Not a great deal to report due to work, man flu (which is a very serious condition despite what women say  ;)) and trying to sort the rolling stock into firstly, what works and what doesn't on a test track where Tutera station will be, then boxing and labeling, which I thought would sort the chaos but seems to have added to it (taking ages although that's mainly due to watching TV, being on here and drinking  :)). Oh, and man flu!

As usual, fumbling with pics. I know people like track plans but as I haven't really got one at the moment (except the overview pic) that'll have to wait but I wanted to show a map of the principality of Izaro so I can explain train movements in the future.

It's not a great map but I tried uploading from 'paint' but it keeps saying 'forbidden' (probably my artwork!) so printed and took a pic so hope this works. The colours were better but the printer ink is not up to date.....




Few explanations and a couple more pics if this works soon.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Edit PS. On it's side wasn't me, honest!

Hola again.

Forgot to say the map is not to scale and also some neighbours have just come round as there seems to be some sort of drain problem between our properties. Nothing serious I believe but will have to post more later.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Hi all,

The drain was sorted if anyone was vaguely interested  :no:

I hope to get the maps the right way round and do better explanations of train movements and what the different places are soon but if you don't mind a cricked neck....

Overall layout....



Map of modeled area.....



Trains come in from Spain/Portugal and France/other places in Europe towards Sant Cristofol and SNCF hauled ones to Pont Castell and Estepera (see previous map) in a roundy roundy, again and again type way. Eventually their destination will change to Tutera terminus station (yet to be built) where trains can be divided, some coaches marshalled (if that's the right word) to the RENFE storage sidings (in pic) or the SNCF ones at Tutera station itself.

Trains, with through coaches, will then be taken on the non electrified line to Casilda which is predominantly a holy site, the shrine of Santa Nuria de Casilda being visited by thousands of pilgrims every year, most traveling by train.

 Also local Euro gauge trains will serve Tutera.

Goods trains will come and go from the Flourite mine at Llera and to and from the famous furniture makers of Pont Castell.

Hope that all makes sense to anyone interested.

I've started to make the backing for the hills around Platja de Teixir and the sea base, although not too sure about the curves, but have to sit in there somehow......






Just a few pics as well,

Renfe 308 dropping of some Moritz beer from Barcelona to the El Gaitero bar/restaurant and some local hotels...











and an SNCF 25500 hauling some Transcereales wagons to Sant Cristofol, passing a TER (Tren Espanol Rapido) from Tutera to Valencia via Barcelona....








Cheers, Salud and Sante, weave

It's all coming along nicely and the main thing is, you've got some trains running!
With kind regards

Great to see some pictures.
Keep them coming.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hola amigos,

Have done a bit more on the layout and was hoping to post some pics (and will do so soon).

However, and a big HOWEVER. Due to a change in personal circumstances it looks like we might have to move next year. All slightly up in the air at the moment but pretty much on the cards  :(.

I have to have an operation on my ankle in January (which is only a small part of the problem) so was going to do as much as I could on the Izaro layout beforehand and then start the Port de Regleun (Brittany layout) while off work for 3 months as it would have easier access.

With the potential move I don't see much point in doing much more as both would have to be ripped up as the idea was for them to be permanent.

I will still work on things (have been working on my Irish ferry for the future Port de Regleun layout to cheer myself up a bit) and I can still run trains around the Izaro layout.

I was going at broken down snail's pace anyway but just to let you all know.

Solace in cider,

Cheers weave  :beers:
