I'll go for a Rheingold with a Pacific up front. Perferably some BR 18 (be it an correct 18.5( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bavarian_S_3/6 ) or the cute BR 18.1 (die schöne Württembergerin:
 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W%C3%BCrttemberg_C )).

Nice train, very classy in blue and cream, like the loco! :)

I have seen it with my own eyes (no-one else would lend me theirs), albeit from the outside only until the right lottery numbers come up.

Available in N gauge, of course, from Kato and shortly Tomix.

I’d go with a short 3 coach pullman train in chocolate and cream with a (very welll stocked) kitchen 1st,  1st class dining car and a sleeper.

Hauled by a green pannier tank.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hang on one cotton-pickin’ minute! :confused1:

This island is ‘uninhabited’, so who is going to do all the work to keep the train running and keep me fed and watered? :hmmm:

Suddenly this island paradise of the imagination seems rather unattractive.

And a very civilised glass of port at five o’clock in the afternoon I think.

Ssssssshhhhhhhhhhhh. Mike, we've all been ignoring that rule and Globi doesn't seem to have noticed. :D

Unbeknownst to you, upon landing on the islad and being the first to discover it, a European conglomeration privatised management of the island and its assets. They provide a skeleton staff to keep the railway going.
