Thumb up-date

Posted by Gerd on Saturday, 11 April 2020 with 5 Comments

Hi folks,

just a short update to you, that my thumb is recovering well. There has been no dramatic injury to the inner parts, but I lost most of the thumb-nail so far. But it looks good, that the nail will recover in full size as well during the next 6-12 month.

So next post will hopefully finish the brake-gear-documentation on my 5″-gauge rolling stock. I already used the good weather in the past days to run some trains on the 45mm-gauge garden track and there are also changes upcoming to my Hon30 layout.

So stay tuned for further updates here on my blog, hopefully starting next week.
Until than, I wish you all Happy Easter, stay home, stay save, keep your fingers out of power tools and enjoy your model trains ;-)

Hello my friends,

on the agenda for this week was the final report about the hand brakes on my disconnects. But unfortunately, something came in between… Or more in detail, my thumb came in between the workpiece and mill…

But don’t worry, the wound is clean and cures well so far. But it would be good for me to keep slow for some while.

Best regards, stay at home, stay healthy, enjoy your model trains, and watch your fingers ;-)

Your Waldbahner.

Hello, this week, I like to share some techniques I use to make multiple identical parts for projects on my model trains. Instead of using modern laser cutting, I try the good old way when possible, as long as the number of parts needed is not to high. Let’s start with a couple of sheet […]

Hello, today, I’ve another issue from my “Waldbahn Gazette”, featuring the amazing “Waldbahn Horský Dolina”.

The layout and rolling stock is built by […]
