Hi all,

If anyone is feeling depressed their layout is not prototypical enough, here are a few interesting prototypes that seem to be inspired by layout design:

90 degree bend right out of a tunnel?

Me again:

The Rendsburg High Bridge, a railway viaduct on the Neumünster–Flensburg line, serving also as a transporter bridge (suspension ferry below the bridge), crosses the Kiel Canal at Rendsburg. The railway line is routed through a large 360-degree loop on the north bank of the canal ("Rendsburg Loop").

Hi,

This could also go into the "Is this prototypical?" thread due to the rolling stock, but I rather post it here because of the nature of the branch line: With a grade of 6% (!), the short "Hunsrückbahn" from Boppard (on the Rhine valley) to Emmelhausen is the steepest non-adhesion line in western Germany. Until 2009 diesel push-pull trains with (only) two Silberling carriages mastered tight curves and steep grades.

Brandon, the first photo is quite remarkable. I have been looking for quite sometime for a photo of the California Zephyr being pulled by Alco PA-1s in the later paint scheme. This is the same paint scheme Marklin used for the Denver and Rio Grande Alco PA-1 set it produced a few years back. Still looking for that elusive photo of the Bluebird streamliner being pulled by a single Alco PA-1, however. Thanks! Chris

Maerklin never made a B unit for the Alco, so the sets have all come with either one PA-1 or with a pair.

Another loop in flat northern Germany: In Flensburg the main line from Hamburg in Germany to Fredericia in Denmark runs in a big loop around the southern outskirts of the town. At Flensburg main station another line to Kiel branches off. In the past, Flensburg saw both, German and Danish round noses, like V200 and NOHAB, even in double traction, respectively:

Pictures of Blue Bird single Alco's are indeed hard to find.
I found one on English Wikipedia but it has copyright and as such i will not copy it.
For me as an European these Alco's are a bit confusing to me.
The Marklin set is in the Wabash colors.
On internet some can be found in Delaware and Hudson colors,it needs a trained eye to spot the difference.

No need to thank me for something i found on internet.
All it takes is Google and a little bit of luck when putting in the search term.
Then opt for pictures and with a bit of luck you will find what you are looking for,that is all.
Combinations of California Zephyr komma Alco PA-1 have given me the proper picture.

Hi all,

One of the most compressed railroads sites I have seen is here in Brisbane, Australia.

This area was originally a steam loco depot and then a diesel servicing area, with carriage storage and cleaning sidings.

Now it is a storage and cleaning area for the electric multiple units that run on our suburban network.

You can see there is a complete 360° double track balloon loop around the entire site. I guess it is R1/R2 in Marklin-speak.

I'm hoping Marklin would release a new A-B-B (or A-B-A) F7 in this DRGW livery someday. This would allow they to do it and still preserve the 3062/4062. Of course if they came out with a digital set the same livery as 3062/4062 I would buy it as well :)

Brandon,

Patience does it.
It took them years to release the A-B-B Union Pacific F7,it came as a total surprise to me,and it is on my wishlist now.
The F7 is a real cash cow for Marklin,i am sure that sooner later the DRWG livery will come.
My first target for this year is set 26600,the California Zephyr,A-B-B F7 Western Pacific plus 6 streamliners,not bad at all.

Cheers,
Paul.

Yes, Paul that is a classic shot, one my favorites.

Another one from the same photographer, taken at the same spot about the same time (1954) looking the other direction into the canyon, the westbound CZ with EMD power.

It almost looks like a model railway scene.

I'm hoping Marklin would release a new A-B-B (or A-B-A) F7 in this DRGW livery someday. This would allow they to do it and still preserve the 3062/4062. Of course if they came out with a digital set the same livery as 3062/4062 I would buy it as well :)

Brandon,

Patience does it.
It took them years to release the A-B-B Union Pacific F7,it came as a total surprise to me,and it is on my wishlist now.
The F7 is a real cash cow for Marklin,i am sure that sooner later the DRWG livery will come.
My first target for this year is set 26600,the California Zephyr,A-B-B F7 Western Pacific plus 6 streamliners,not bad at all.

Cheers,
Paul.


Try to buy it,one of the best sets marklin ever made.We are waiting for the good news.

Maybe need some industrial radius K/M track to make those ;)

Another steep grade:

This one just looks like a model, that's all (the train is being loaded with mail on a bridge over the Potomac River, I believe):

I would say those qualify all as big loco with short train, too.
