Well, it's morning here and I'm signing in.
I saw a Fleischmann ICE that I like very much.
It has a tilting mechanism that tilts the train on the curves, really nice.
They just don't offer in in AC only DC, bummer.

I'm off to my ETE chapter meeting in a few hours with my modules.
We're touching them up in preparation for EuroWest next month, it's going to be an all day affair.
The chapter has a trailer that carries them to the event and other train shows which makes it easier for the members.
Now many of them have pickup trucks be I don't and when I put them into the car, there isn't much space for luggage.
It's a 8 hour drive from home to EuroWest so I use the diesel Passat.

Hi Rob,

It's nearly 15.30 in the afternoon, I've watched the F1 qualifying and done very little else, we've got heavy rain here.

If I drove for 8 hours, I'd drive all the way thro' England and nearly be in France.Smile

Please send some of the RAIN towards Southern California.

We are in our dry period and have had several brush fires, like 2000 acres burned.

We live East of Los Angeles and EuroWest is on the San Francisco pennsula 1/2 way between SF and San Jose.

I'll post pictures on the form after the event or maybe a link to a photo website.

I can just sit here in front of my computer and watch your train videos for hours on end.
I am just amazed at your layout and those of other European modellers.

I would really like to see Baden Wurttemberg with my own eyes, and like to meet other forum members.

Can't make it Saturday, because my wife and one of my sons are 4 weeks away to the tropics, and I have 5 cats and two other children to take care off, and I have to make a new floor in 4 rooms in our house, before my wife is back. I promise her that.

But next time....YES.

Have you ever thought of starting a solid centre rail module club ??
16 or 24 sleeper ??
If we can only build it up one or twice a year, It would make me (very) happy.

Ian,

You most probably mentioned it on a few occasions before but I can't get my head around it.

So all the work you've done in the cabin sofar the layout is concerned will be scrapped or do you re-use it ? or is it a matter of dismantling it and moving it and setting it up in the new train castle (the correct english spelling).
bym looking at your new layout plan this actually doesn't resemble anything like the old layout.
What will be saved and how much will you be able to re-use of the structure it self ?

Hi John,

Will be building a new framework(s) for the layouts.

The layouts will be at a different (higher) height and shape, so easier to start from scratch and build a new one(s).

The new framework will again be using 70mm by 45mm dressed wood and 18mm plyboard.

Ian,

I love it when there are long trains 6+ cars as compaired to the branch lines of only 2 or 3 cars.
I run 7- 9 cars on the ETE layout.

You show one reverse loop in the video, but is there another one on the layout to change direction back to the original flow?

Yes, there is a reverse loop, so you can again travel in the original direction.

It's at the same area of the layout, but it does involve travelling over/thro' the Turntable. Smile

I just thought, you have a hidden yard below the layout.
So is there a crossover from one track to the other under there that you can also use?

I'm on my "honey doo" day and shampooing some of the carpets here in the house.
The outside temperature is supposed to be about 40 C here today and with the ceiling fans in operation, they should dry out quickly.

Now it's back to work for another hour and I'll check back then.

I went outside to find the neighbours already standing in the street. I noticed a group of 4 or 5 boys playing, only one of them had a old black bike. They were wearing lederhosen and had no shoes on. One of the boys had his proud possesion outside, a toy train.
I walked over and asked if I could have a look. He excitedly showed me it, a clockwork tinplate train with Märklin stamped on it.

One of the neighbours was reading a paper, the date was 23rd January 1941.

I asked what was happening and was told, they had heard that Oberstleutnant Adolf Galland was going to fly past Freiburg in his Messerschmitt Bf109f-2 on his way to another daring mission shooting down British Spitfires and Hurricanes.

The droning got louder and then you could see the fighter plane, and just as quickly it was gone.

But the noise was getting louder, becoming more of a deep growl.


Suddenly, I was awake, eyes open, the first thing I saw was the flat screen on the bedroom wall.

I got up and looked out the bedroom windows, my son Paul had started the Firebird and was reversing it out the garage.
I thought, those new race cylinder heads have added some grunt to that big block chevy.

Standing there, I realised just how much life had changed......

Ian.

Hi all,

A couple of years ago I used to tell one or two little stories on BW, this is one of my favourites.

Might start again...Smile

Hi all,

Well, does your Märklin time pass quickly.

I was fitting my anniversary Marklin-Users wagons into the display cabinets and thought the last couple of years sure passed quickly.

We became Grandparents...twice over, built "Märklin House" and started the new layout(s).

And met some new friends through the forum...ThumpUp

Not a bad couple of Märklin years....how was yours???

Ian.

Surely they do!!!!!!
And i have enjoyed very much your pictures of the process, since the beggining of the construction of your new Maerklin HouseThumpUp
here, also the time flies!! It seems it was yesterday when my 39013 arrived for my birthday 2 years ago, making such a big emotion after many years of having my trains aside!!!! Layout is stationary, in fact, last week i have begin the disassembling process.....So mainly it has beenn a time to grow up my collection, getting some long time dreamed models, and many others that appears on the road....
Cheers

Ian,

The last two years have simply flown by, and none more so than when enjoying a bit of Marklin time. The last trip up to BW the two days seemed to last five minutes, and so it leads me to believe that we need to work two days per week and have a 5 day week-end BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin

But I echo your sentiments, it has been fun, to enjoy our Marklin UK get together's up and down the country, meet new friends, and add exciting new items to our collections, as well as to spend time watching our prize items running on our layouts.

Here is to the next year, with more meetings, more new friends, more Forum banter, and of course more Marklin.

BR

Glenn

Hello Ian, i am not moving, just thinking in a new design in the same place, but also evaluating to use other spaces in the house for the trains.
The layout in my bedroom was a need to run the trains, build as a kind of provisional one, that growed more and get more permanent, but very limited in operations, also i have there big troubles with dust from the bed and such that cumulates very quickly on the rails...
So....perhaps a little family living room where now is the PC, PS3 and such things can hold a more functional layout, and of course that means that all that playground area for the kids will have to move to my bedroom.
And the other options is a more big apartment originally conceived for visitors but now is working as warehouse, that of course will need a bigger investment on time to clean it up and money to change the floor and repaint it and so and so.....but i would have 25 m2 to play.....not bad!!!!!BigGrin
I have to think and think......

Hi Eddie,

Thanks very much.....here's another 30 odd pages to look at.....Smile

There's also BW Part 1 and BW part 3 to keep you going.

Those threads are all of my old layout I had in my Log Cabin.

All the best.

Ian.

...my first layout was on a 1500mm by 900mm table top.
