Services continue on the LGB - sunny times just before the autumn began a few days ago….
Plus a dusk shot too. 32FACB30-2B1A-4F83-B16D-9FF9817E2B5B.jpeg 12F74829-E943-4C03-8375-5C504FCF02C8.jpeg 775D8168-6657-4718-A218-151AD2909372.jpeg

Boahh, looks great!
Where did you got the Mh6? Is this a live steam?

Best Regards

The Mh6 used to be live steam, but I could not get it to light successfully, so I used an LGB Rugenslok chassis and made it a digital sound loco which ran pre3cisely as I wanted it to.
I sold the inner boiler and original chassis to a nice man from the Netherlands, which paid for the Rugenslok donor chassis.

There are at least 5 MH6/399 Engerth in the U.K.
Two of the guys hereabouts have electric ones and there is a live steam one in southern England as well as our two Keith.

I have been "terra-forming"
More track in the same space......

The plant pots will go when I get round to planting the conifers.

Quite a bit more detail to be added yet.

Though you had been quiet for a while just the other day, clearly you have been busy.

Another shot of the depot. Now the coal Staith phone box and coal dust have been added. The snow plough attachment is on the rhs of the double shed. Just the water crane to go now. The crane needs to be robust unlike the Pola one I had on the original layout.

Is the piece of blue wire on 56 to enable double heading? If so may I suggest you use a black equivalent, make it less obtrusive in your superb pictures.

The blue wire is to enable cab first running as it is not possible to fit a hook to the front of U Class loks as you know. The blue wire ensures that no unintended decoupling takes place when passing over changes of gradient curves.

Thank you Jon. I do endeavour to add a little realism to the shots. 328B8FDC-1493-436E-94F5-CC84FC043DF4.jpeg

Aha get that. I use double hooks on all stock with none on locomotives. Decoupling on my line has been near eradicated by lowering the locomotive coupling both ends by 20-30 thou. A piece of plasticard cut to fit the coupling slot with a hole works just fine.

What you want to see is the hook depressed just slightly, this stops unwanted decoupling.

A bargain from the bay of evil arrived last week. A new loco unrun - until now.
