Dan and Henri. I'm sorry, really sorry but I could not resist. It was the name of your video that made me do it Dan


Now back to the subject in hand................Max

P.S. Nice line you have there and some very neatly chopped stock. Dan

The coach is shortened by 7 cm to 50 cm. The bogies were moved 1,5 cm towards the ends.

in the curve there is no track visible besides the coach. That is an improvement.
a test with a wagon shows quite some space inbetween, but that doesn’t bother me enough to change.
Rubber ruler it is!!

Good choice and clever way to check clearances!
