About the blog

This rambling blog is about building a couple of simple layouts in HO, the available space is rather small but the prototype was not built on the grand scale, most stations were merely a curved loop and a siding.

Pottendorf 2004 in Leiden

These images emerged from 2004 when we visited Rail in the Netherlands. This was the first version of Pottendorf, an ellipse just 4m x 3m 

It seems that I am still using the same buildings.......

Trix Club Model

These rather interesting wagon are Trix Model Club offerings from 2009 and 2014, I missed them because I am 'not in the club' but I am sure that some collectors know all about it.

Not sure if they are just a fantasy from Matrix but they sure are pretty.

As soon as they arrive, those wheels will have to go, as well as the close couplings.

Milk was transported in special milk wagons and in the days of the Royal Bavarian State Railways this was no different. This very small wagon is lettered for the Bayerische Milchversorgung (Bavarian Milk Distribution). The company's distribution facilities were built in 1930 in Nuremberg, today only little is left of the company buildings.

Whilst Wilhelm Meuschel is a wine seller in Kitzingen.

Bayer. Güterzugbegleitwagen in HO

This is the Holy Grail for those who model KBayStsB, unfortunately only available from Minitrix.

If a competent 3D user could create a body, it could be fitted on a modified Fleischmann chassis.

Suggestions, please.
