[WBE] What’s up at the Waldbahn Eusserthal?

Posted by Gerd on Thursday, 26 November 2020 with 5 Comments

Hello logging railroaders,

as announced last week, there has been some small changes on my Hon30 logging railroad, all affecting the rolling stock and motive power. Some months ago, I decided to get rid of both Brigadelocos and all the HFB-wagons. These models were seldom used as they looked to big on the tiny layout. A small 0-4-0 looked much more plausible with a 3-car consist.

With this decision, the Waldbahn Eusserthal now operates as a 750mm gauge railroad only by using the Egger-type Minitrains locos and two Roco locos. Don’t worry, the Shay is also still in service. But this is all I need to operate this small layout, nothing more.

Anyway, a new addition came in October this year, when the WBE officially started the tourist and museum trains. Therefore, three open passenger cars were acquired and brought into service. The trains were operated by diesel locos on weekdays, while a steam loco will pull the trains on weekends and holidays.

Many thanks for your patience and see you next time,
your Waldbahner aka Gerd.

What’s up?

Hi folks,

it has been quite here in the past weeks. Don’t worry, we’re all well, but we had a lot of other tasks to manage. Therefore the hobby-time was rare and more often, I was to exhausted, to make any progress on my projects.

Anyway, I operate some trains on my Hon30 layout from time to time and also the small 009 livesteam loco. There has been some updates as well. Maybe this is something for next weeks blog?

Stay save! Gerd
