It was 1,5 degrees Celsius and the burner running on lighter gas had great trouble heating up the water.

But owwww, how nice is this!!

Is that green Beck "Anna" yours, Henri? If so, I must have missed some posts when you got it! Looks lovely, and seems to run well (if a little fast, like most live steamers unless you have something like a SloMo device or a really heavy train to slow it down a bit).....

The owner converted it to RC. Very nice!!
Ah, yes, I've just watched the video again on full-screen - and now I can see the RC linkage to the regulator knob on the steam dome! Very neatly done, probably makes it a much more controllable little loco!

Ah, tnat's the make, Beck. I saw one on eBay recently and thought it looked very smart.

So an update is needed here. Rabbit Hill Tramways has been dismantled a few months ago due to drastic garden redesign. I had to lift all tracks and dismantle the bedding.

The new garden does have space for a new layout, although smaller in size unfortunately. I’ve learned from my noob errors, like s curves. The new design uses R3 points only. The two curves are slightly larger then R1 (flextrack). I love flextrack as I can go wild with my fantasy to have no tracks parallel to each other.

Yes I like this new layout already!
DC only, orange LGB switchbox to power sections when needed.
Maybe a pendel setup later on both sidings.

Trespa base upon a brick wall. Roofing tar ‘mats’ will go on top to serve as base for the Rowlands mix.
