I know the 12 wheeler states it's a restaurant car, but I'm sure my schoolboy German tells me Schlafwagen means sleeping car :confused2:

10 out of 10 Nobby! Go to the top of the class. It certainly does mean sleeping car. :thumbsup:

Hello,
Some fresh appearances on Neunburg streets.
Green trolley and orange Opel Blitz to do maintenance on the track and clean the city respectively. Icecream is now available to the Neunburg folk from the yellow VW. A cyclist is trying to stay out of tram track and holes in the road. In the background the tail of a brand new red Opel van be spotted.
Apologies for the quality. A different camera and I have to adapt to it still.
Thanks for watching.
Mark-Jan

On a visit to Dundee last weekend, I found this treasure in the model shop in Invergowrie.
Had to pay pretty much full whack but as it is a limited edition - what the heck.
I present to you Late Crest Black 5 45157 "Glasgow Highlander", number 209 of 504 made by Farish for their collectors club - reference 372-137K

OOh, now that IS nice. How Scottish is that. The Black 5's were so common in those woods. And although I always spout on about green being the only colour for a loco, be it steam or diesel, isn't that red and white lining on black sooo smart?

A lovely mixed traffic loco and a lovely purchase. Great buy!!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I know its only a Gronk but until now I didn't have much time for them, that is until this one arrived today from KJB Models.

Although I think SWMBO's comment of "what a cute little engine" is going a bit far  ::)

Just had a sneaky test run of the class 50. Ran nice for a lap or two needed a little more power then say the new class 03 but it is the older model. I am sure it will free up with use. Now back in the wife cupboard as it is for my father day present placed exactly in the same spot hahaha

That's very nice Mick. An excellent find.

A rather fantastic Dapol Mk3 HST Buffet car in First Great Western livery arrived today. :bounce:

The bad news is it is near to impossible to find the HST set that goes with it anymore  :veryangry:

NGF wagon arrived in Oz safe and sound! Great packaging by NPN, and what a neat writer!  :wave:
Here it is on Troutbeck bridge held at a red light, accompanied by it's unmarked Dapol cousin - more of that anon....

On the Castle Eden branch, having picked up a Peco guards van somewhere along the way..
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
And passing by Phillip Ross & Sons' timber yard.

Interestingly (perhaps not), that Dapol hopper at the back cost me A$45 at a model shop just outside of Hobart, Tasmania, whereas the customised NGF one only cost A$32, including postage from England!  :worried:
