    A new loco on the Southern Palatinate Railway

    today I don’t have logging-related news, but good news anyway. I got a livesteam Accucraft Mogul as a bargain from eBay. The loco and especially the tender needs some attention/rebuilt, but at least, the steam part is working great. As last year on my Resita project, I’ve a long list with things to be done on this loco and I’ll show the progress within the next weeks. Here are some photos of the new loco.

    We also got first snow at Ronja Springs this weekend.

    Have a nice 3rd Advent, Gerd

The letters were cnc-milled from styrene, the girders milled from PVC-foam-board. I used some T-profiles as well. All parts […]

I was invited to show my Hon30 logging layout in Ludwigshafen (near […]

Once I got rid off all the stupid ideas I had as well as faulty compromises, I ended with a […]
