Re: Models coming

DF11Z, that's even better news! These seem to come under the Minitown brand though - is there, by chance, the same manufacturer behind the Minitown and Kunter brands?

Re: Models coming

Wow, the DF8B is really good news. A while ago, I thought about building a "classical" DF8 shell that would fit a CMR Line DF4 chassis - now, it's worth waiting for the mechanism that has the correct wheelbase right away. Also, I wonder if the DF11G will receive different bogies with the slightly la...

Re: N scale projects

Hello all, Trying to get back on track, with moderate success... Some progress on the P62 master: http://galaxy.impulzus.com/tmp/rail/cn/p/p62_190422.jpg The W5/W6 would have the same core and underframe, so I'll do these as well. As for now, the side walls were cut and filed to size: http://galaxy....

Re: N scale projects

Thanks! This is N scale. The custom-built projects are typically based on a commercially available mechanism, so construction is limited to the shell and detailing. Unfortunately, some of the techniques and materials are not very suitable for HO - twice the size seems to be already in a different wo...

Re: 24 series passenger stock

Yes, they could be the same. Actually, an earlier batch was put in the 18 series, and the newer coaches only are in the 24 series. They are referred to as the "Ammendorf type" because the Ammendorf works did most of the production (even though some examples were also produced by the Görlitz works). ...

Re: Internal colour of Chinese open wagons?

Bill, Teff is a kind of _very_ small seed originally grown for food around Ethiopia. The grains are so small that they pass for N scale potatoes: https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5734dc9a62cd949b46289a42/t/5735e75909a58ebb9a931fcf/1368628503723/1000w/Teff.jpg As for cast resin wagon loads: the...
