That's a very smartly finished loco, and are the grey trucks customs?

The added steps on the tender is the best modification in my opinion. The piece added to the cow catcher is also a nice touch. That locomotive must have cost only about 2 or 3 dollars if I remember correctly. I still haven't completed the similar ones I have. It should be very easy to add glazing to your cabin, because the depressions at the edges of the windows is a good place for the glue.

Semi-Retired; more time for trains.
Xav, I do love your pictures and your railway, I assume the plastic track is Playmobil, but is this a permanent railway, or is laid to play test your trains.

@ Playmofire,
grey gondolas are "scientific toys" brand too,
sent by -bbbb with the loco ( with blue and green gondolas )
I reduced Playmobil frames ( width and length ) to fit with gondolas dimensions

Thank you JimmyB
You are right, there are Playmobil RC tracks
For the moment, I do not have permanent railway.

Depending on seasons, evolution of vegetation, I install tracks temporarily in different places in the garden.
I think RC tracks could stay few years under the warm sun of South of France
but I am less confident about stuff.
But I will have permanent railway one day :think:
