[CFF] Resita 764-467 back in service

Posted by Gerd on Sunday, 15 September 2019 with No Comments

Hi folks,

after the crash of my Resita loco some weeks ago, it took only a few days to get the rough warp repaired, but it took several more days to get the loco back into perfect operational condition.

In the past days, I disassembled and re-assembled the loco several times, fixing many small issues from the crash and others. Finally, I managed to bring her back to perfect smooth operation.

This week, the Resita was in duty on a work train to ballast tracks.

Cheers, Gerd

[MLC] Running on our club layout

Posted by Gerd on Sunday, 8 September 2019 with 2 Comments

Hello followers,

this week, I like to share the photos from the August operation session on our club layout. I ran my whole 1:7.2 scaled log train and had a great day. Most time, I was the only “show train” running on the inner loop, so I was able to enjoy very slow speed running of my Shay locomotive, and even some special maneuvers like running in opposite direction and tender ahead.

I got additional support by my friend Tim, who also made most of the photos below.

Cheers, Gerd

[LVLC] Shay Days 2019

Posted by Gerd on Sunday, 1 September 2019 with 1 Comment

Hello Shay lovers,

on July 17th, Ephraim Shay would have celebrated his 180th birthday. His birthday is celebrated each year at Harbor Springs during the “Shay-Days”. I jumped on the event at my garden railroad and operated my live steam Shay with some ordinary supply and freight trains. Here’s a collection of photos, taken during the operation session.
