Re: CHINA PHOTOS

And finally … my 2005 trip photos

CRRC buy Vossloh

CRRC is buying the loco building business of Vossloh and it's Kiel plant. Not clear whether this will include their "good will" or whether Kiel will continue... but they are clearly intent on making a bigger mark in Europe!

Re: Water towers

Thanks. Several of those look very Germanic and could be covered by kits. However, I might have a go at trying to print a concrete tower sometime.

Water towers

In the middle of dressing my layout and need to build a depot water tower. However I've not been able to find any pictures in my library or on the web. Does anyone have any or can describe a prototypical construction?

Re: MTC X70

Finally got around to looking at this and sort of solved it with a cheap and cheerful hack. Took a NEM Kadee coupler and disconnected the head by pushing the copper pin out.
