Sometimes I spend all my time working on the layout that I don't stop and take time to just run trains. So that's what I did today! The above photo shows a new addition to my fleet (review coming at some point in the future) which also represents my first Italian locomotive!
Here's another shot:
An old friend, the Minitrix Class 1800 is shown here approaching the Hack Brucken (bridge), and the prefabricated Faller (?) marshes down below. It turned out quite nice after all!
Here's the same locomotive passing over one of the Busch laser-cut paper underpass model. This was a pain to install (easy to build), but its coming along. I still need to do some work on that roadway obviously.
And finally, I love to watch the CC72000 bring a rake of coaches alongside the Kato station platforms 'downtown':
That's all for today! Well, not really....I also attempted to repair, fix, or finish about a hundred little things that were left unfinished earlier or were not done propertly the first time around, but too tedious to write about - much less read about!
