Over the years the "Feldbahn" stock on the CFR has been steadily building up. All the hook and loop couplings have been replaced with Binnie centre buffers and chain. The side dump hoppers have all received paint jobs and weathering to depict various degrees of decrepitude.

Ninety percent of what I run are field railway cars. I just love 'em. How do the chain couplings you mentioned work for you, as far as running and switching operations ?

Dan, no problems at all. Shunting(switching) operations are easy and reliable.

I looked closer at your photos. I see that you have buffers on the wagon ends. Obviously they are not fouling on curves during switching operations.

So what did you use to make such fine crisp lines ?

Dan, the red and white stripes are put on at LGB. The lime green stripes are thin tape.

Three new wagons for the CFR? They came with metal wheels and had individual lettering. They were added to the other wagons to make a rake of fifteen. Albert hauled them along quite nicely.

The fleet of coal skips now stands at 25. The intention is to run them in rakes of 9, so I still need to acquire two more skips. Two rakes will have loads and the other rake will be empty returns.
