I learned the engine is connected with a 5 speed gearbox to the axles. I once rode on the Schienenbus from the ZLSM and I was absolutely charmed by the shifting of gears while getting up to cruise speed! It was like driving an old Mercedes!

My latest locomotive from Roundhouse Engineering. She’s a “Hercdog” a one-off special. She has received the name Elise:-

Both were better, but then on Firefox with one of tac's pictures I get this:

I have not posted in this topic before as I am not into buses myself, but this morning I saw the below outside a model railway exhibition. I thought it might be of interest to some.

the EG&SNNR is closed for the winter thought I'd better see if the recently acquired new RhB electric loco moves, lights up and makes the required noises etc.

All's going well, even looks good with the TEE unit although no chance with them meeting up in real life .... or on the EG&SNNR!

Here’s one type of the Tomytec trams

Tamworth, Staffs.
That is rather clever.. - Not come across them before.
Knew the name, but only in the context of chassis for other things.

As for the railway:
Ooooh! A 'BN' Caboose.. :)

Ah, the Tomytec is Paul Rhb's post - either on the new tram thread or Max's 'little diversion' thread

Dunnytram: the final listed option would be a good way of getting Cars from a single Depot lead out onto the complete line. Sadly Kato do not do Single Points. But it still works from the double point x the Depot.
