The grass looks fantastic, wondering whether to replace my lawn with it........I wonder if it's weather proofLaying grass today. It's important that I credit WWScenics who have videos on their website on how to get a rough look. First step, mask the edge of the area to be covered so the spray glue used later doesn't go in the wrong place.

Brush on some glue (thinly is important) and lay 2 mm static grass. But before it has dried, scrunch it up with fingers. yes, it looks a mess.

Cover with spray glue (now you know why I masked it earlier) then add some 4mm long grass.

The tuft in the foreground is actually grass stuck onto masting tape covering the fouling marker.
Spray more glue on and add some 6 mm static grass.

Let all the glue dry, remove the masking tape and hoover up and loose bits. The result ....

I think that was a successful day. work tomorrow.
It is called a Gepäckwahen and acts as an Office for the Train Captain and also for carrying anything that does not go into the coaches this could be luggage but also less than Van Loads of Goods. Cannot find a translation that tells me what Perleberg/1989 means but I would guess either modified or built. There are or were 9 of them 905-150 to 158.Having got some metal wheels following everyone’s advice, I also got a couple of LGB axles with pick-up. I’ve used these to put lights in my brake van (is that what its called?). The phots below show how it was done. Unlike my coaches which use accessory decoders to turn the lights on and off, the brake van has a much simpler and cheaper method, a on/off switch which can be reached when the doors are open.

I had originally considered a similar conversion to yours but with cables to other vehicles in the set to give them lights as well. But as I never run at night and now that I am have battery powered locomotives that was a project that got canceled by the DfT as “not worth doing”, for me that is. Nice job.
Just realised where you are! Spent the last 30 odd years passing your house on the way north, wonder if Notwork Fail will let me stop for a brew and alook at your handy work?
