Christmas time -> Family time

Posted by Gerd on Tuesday, 26 November 2019 with 2 Comments

Hello my friends,

well, what happened to 2019? it’s nearly gone…

Coming Sunday, this years Xmas season will start and in the past years, this was the time when my workshop got a real boon in projects and models. Back in time, when I was attending the Livesteam Indoor Meet in Germany, I had a lot to organize during the end of the year and sometimes, I challenged even huge projects in a short time, like a whole new  turntable in 5″-gauge, build within a few days.

All of these projects didn’t happen if I didn’t get so much support by my wife and family. They gave me a lot of spare time to work on my models/projects and to let me attend on exhibitions, not always without head-shaking.

Therefore it’s the best time to say “Thanks” and I decided to keep the workshop closed during the next weeks, spending the whole time with my family. I wish you all a peaceful and happy Xmas-season. We’ll see/read us again next year.

Kind regards, your “Waldbahner” aka Gerd.

Short break

Hi folks,

I was very short in time for workshop and blog entries in the past weeks, due to several reasons. But now I’m back on track and already working on the next project. So hopefully there’ll be new content coming next week.

Thanks & regards, Gerd

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