Hi all,

First of all, I'd like to thank all the forum members and guests for Baden-Wurttemberg's amazing following.

In the first year, 23 pages, over 2200 replies and over 56000 views.


As you know this is my return to Marklin after nearly a 20 year break, how things had changed.

So I would like to thank (again) everyone who has helped me with getting my layout started.

I hope you don't mind, but there are 4 members, I'd like to mention,who have really helped me,right from the beginning,with my track design,helix construction, my move over to digital operation (still at a very basic stage) and day to day Marklin information.

A very BIG thankyou to (in no order) John, Ray, bryan and Stephen. ThumpUp

Ian.

And just to get my 2nd year of to a great start, my bid on a beautiful BR10 37084 was successful.Smile

Ian,

Having followed your dream right from the beginning (before it was a layout) you have worked realy hard to come this far.

Not realizing it was your 1st Year Birthday and not realizing the 400 Watt lights you've bought suppose to be candles for your Birthday cake (a hint perhaps ?), I congratulate you and your wife (assuming for putting up with it) for sharing with us, a wonderful ride along the many different tracks into a wonderland of surprises and we'll never know what is just around the corner waiting for us in the 2nd Year.

Looks like you even had to work hard to receive your own Birthday present. (successful bid on ebay)

John

Hi John,

Thanks. ThumpUp

But that Loco is not my Birthday present, my good friend Thomas has already arranged that.

I believe those "models" will add some excitement to the visual look of the layout.

Ian.

Congrats Ian! This all proves how great our hobby is! We learn so many different things in the building of our layouts and yes, we have our favorite tasks over others, but in the long run even the ones we're not crazy about add to our creativity and talent.

Ian,

It looks rather small and yet when you show photos of the layout from the inside it looks huge.

How did you go with the instructions, easy to follow ?

I would need 3 of them to fit my layout into it.

Morning John,

I'm up real early loading some of the photo's of the cabin construction. Smile

The outside measurements are 6m long by 5m wide,with a small cutout where the door is.

The instructions are a bit basic,but was very easy to put together,all the logs come precut to size.

I've still got another couple of photo's to get loaded.

It is indeed very early in your part of the woods.

I nearly said, what a glorious day it is but than I've realized the photos were taken a while back.

We'll have about 30° C to day and going to a miniture village called "Abingdon".

Have to find out if it is recreated or related to Abington in Scotland.

Hi bryan,

I was at the railway on Saturday night for a little celebration, and although it was very windy and heavy rain outside, I'm sure that coming out of one of the tunnel entrances, I could hear some "chuff chuff" noises followed by what sounded like "buy me another Loco,and some track,and another MS2, and some more scenery,and....., and then as quickly as the noise appeared it was gone.

I'm not sure why, but for some strange reason,the word L-----P sprung to mind. Smile

Hope you guys are hanging in over there...or should I say holding on.

All the best.

Ian.

Hi Ian. As I am now starting layout number three if I was to look back over the years the amount spent with Lokshop I would probably give up the hobby. Although our exporters would not agree if the pound rate was to go back to 1.5 euros it would be helpful.
I keep asking Bryan to open a branch in Scotland where I reckon he would do well (being the only dealer)

Hi Dave,

Yes, the lead that is moulded into the transformer, just plugs into the back of the CS2.

What I'm not sure about is how you can use it with the MS2 and it's track box.

That will be great to see the new layout, once you get it on a bit.

Had another look at the photo's, and I'm sorry because I haven't made that very clear.

If you go back to the first photo, the points I'm removing are situated to the left of the disconnected 5106 strait track.

Hi Ray,

That was only part of the order, some was out of stock.

Just had an e-mail from them to say items in and have been posted to me.

Got to say, I get really good service from Lokshop. ThumpUp

I agree, Lokshop is very good. I wish the postal system between Germany and Gibraltar were as good! Sometimes I prefer paying a bit more to a UK shop to avoid the 4-6 week delivery time.

Happy first birthday for your fabulous layout, Ian! It has been really exciting watching the progress.

I am not sure what it is, but the pictures even in Part II are taking ages to download properly. I only see half of them. Is it only me or are others facing the same problem?

Cheers,

Thank you for asking, Ian. The week long holiday in Exeter, UK was wonderful and very exciting. The weather was great, and I guess we brought the sun along with us.

I drove down to meet Ashley who lives in Bournemouth, and we had some good times together. He showed me a new ROCO set that he had purchased in which you could actually open and close the doors of the passenger cars! That is something very special which Marklin does not have.

I also went on the South Devon Steam Railway from Buckfastleigh to Totnes which was really good fun. Unforunately, my wife, Ambiga, and my daughter, Sharanya, were unable to make the trip as they were busy with some other things.

When we arrived home, the grand old 30210 was waiting for me! All around it was a very good enjoyable week.

I am currrently working on some photos of the 30210 and the train ride. I hope to post them here soon.

Cheers,
Ranjit

Hi bryan,

It's good to hear that things are slowing down a bit, hope you're nearly at the end of it.

I have 2 totally seperate digital layouts within the overall layout.

One is controlled by the CS2 (the main section) and the other section (middle hillside) is controlled by the MS2.

They both have their own transformers. My question was how to connect the new 60061 to the MS2 and using the track box.


Just to complicate things further, I have 2 totally seperate analog sections also on the layout. Smile

Hi all,

Here's some photo's of the new section of track layout that I completed this morning.

To be honest,it's not that much different, but I think it flows slightly better

It's also made that track thro' the station area that bit longer.

Ian.

Hi Stuart,

I've got access round 3 sides of the layout, and 1 access hatch nearer the back wall, but you're right,for the very middle section, I just climb onto the framework.

If you look back at early photo's of the framework construction, it's made from 45mm by 70mm studs covered with 18 plyboard and is very solid ,so you can "walk about on it".

Hi all,

I've been struggling for ages now, every time I had to dismantle a Loco, it was on the bench, it was on my knee's, I was dropping screws on the floor, it was a bloody nightmare, and now for a few euro's, life has become so much simplier.

I'm sure you're all having a laugh now, been there and done it. Smile

Let me show you (can't miss it) some photo's of my Loco stand.

Ian.

Ian,
I'm still doing it, we have a persian carpet with all the colours & parts a loco has.

I have made myself a promise to put all spare parts into a dish but than again I get carried away and the parts just finish up on the floor.
At least you've found a good solution.

Regarding your change of tracks, unless you tell us which direction the trains are running, your explanation does'nt mean much to me.

I could write: that's nice Ian, That looks nice Ian, well done Ian.

Ian, that's a good idea, getting one of those stands.

I've been looking at the similar PECO loco lift. It works as a lifting device to get your loco off the rails and doubles as a stand to hold it in for working on the loco, in the same way as the Noch product you've got.

I also have the same experience as John, with a carpet which swallows up parts so they disappear for ever!

Hi John,

Of course you're right, just tell me it looks nice.Smile

No seriously, we already discussed this in an earlier topic, I had it planned that the inside circle, Loco's would travel from left to right (anticlockwise) on my photo's and the other direction on the outer circle.

This goes back to when we were planning the double entrance/exit tracks to the Helix.

Looking at photo's 3 and 4 where the small screwdriver is sitting, that small compartment has a magnet in the bottom of it, so really handy for keeping all the small screws etc from the Loco you are working on.

That's a nice little locomotive cradle you have got there,Ian. I guess you will have all your locomotive things in one place now. It is an item I have been wanting to get for a long time.

With such a massive layout, and so much stuff, do you have plans to extend your model railway cabin?

Ian, what loco is that on your cradle? It doesn't look like a Marklin.

I don't see a motor so I assume it's in the tender?

Yes Ian, you're so right about fumbling around trying to work on a Lok. I now use
a mitre box and I put a piece of foam inside it. It works pretty well too. Yours does seem much better as it has places for screws/small parts. I just put my parts into a small plastic tray. I may just order one of those Noch ones now. Cheers, PeterThumpUp

It was meant as a comparison between our two postal delivery times from the same supplier.

I believe that Peter also can have a lengthy time to wait for his order to arrive.

Excellent Ian! BRAVO to Lokshop! 1 1/2 hr flight Germany-UK, many, many flights per day.
8 hr or so flight Germany-East,central USA - probably near 100 flights per day on all airlines! So what's the problem? I think it is the US importer, Walthers in Wisconsin.
I have written to them as to why it takes several months to get items from Marklin, Faller, Noch etc. By the way, these are all items which show "green light" on these companies individual websites. That was 2 weeks ago. I have still not heard from them.
I wonder if I ever will? I think that Marklin USA should handle all imports and maybe those of other manufactorers too. I have also let Marklin in Germany know about the bad service that I think they are getting from Walthers too.

I just got an email from Lokshop that they are shipping the new Marklin catalogue.

Cost of catalogue - about 6.5 euro

Cost of shipping - 23 euro (ouch)

I expect to receive it towards the end of November.

I used to get it from gaugemaster for about 10 pounds, delivery time less than a week.

I think I'm going to write to the postmaster-general to complain. It's not the fault of the local post office, I think it's to do with being routed through Spain. Maybe if I complain they might do something about it, but I doubt it.

Hi Ian, yes I can deal with Lokshop but you really have to order quite a bit or it does not pay. Some Euro price are OK but others come out higher and then there's the shipping costs which I understand run about 30 Euros and up depending on weight. Then when the package gets to the states you have to wonder if they're going to charge you customs duty or not? Once a few years ago I ordered from a shop in Toronto,Canada and they tried to charge me $100.00! I gave the postman the check and then later went to the post office to have it out with the postmaster. He gave me my check back and I voided it out because duty is not to be paid on imports under $250.00. Cheers,PeterUnsure

I just finished waiting 7 weeks for my mega start set from lok shop, but when I ordered two boxes of 46528 tanks cars they only spent 10 days in the mail, now sure my start set I had to pay GST on, so it spent 2 weeks at customs, but what about the other 5? very odd indeed. Add to the the Br23 I was going to get is now sold out and not available untill the next production run from the factory. :(


PS: good progress on your layout Ian, keep up the good work. ThumpUp

Hi Nev,

Thanks for the information, I didn't know that.

I must look into the membership of the Insider club, see what the benefits are.

Ian.

Some nice goodies there, Ian!

Good luck with the landscaping work. Have you checked out "Woodland Scenics"? They have some very interesting stuff to make your work a lot easier.

Cheers,
Ranjit
