I have that many shelves loaded with trains, and all the boxes from them, and or Kits. Also in roll out storage under my layout, and a chest of 5 drawers

On the penultimate visit, I saw that some warehouse was being built?

After about 10 days, it was on the layout

The high lights that will be around it are still being completed

This moves left and right and rotates so it moves the skaters on the rink via magnets

The line of text immediately above the photo tells you, but it will take some thinking to see how it will work to make skaters twirl around on the ice.

Oh, ok Alan. 4 motors moving the skaters in opposing directions around a spinning center axis like a carnival ride, but slower. Sort of a sqaure dance.

A small shop always has a nice selection of models
UserPostedImage
One day I found a part of the hill with the ski lift removed
UserPostedImage
It was also an opportunity to clean the numerous rails under it
UserPostedImage
I found the cable car in the maintenance workshop
UserPostedImage
It was necessary to tighten the long chain that moves the skiers on the surface via magnets
UserPostedImage
I used that opportunity to shoot the cable car from various angles that I can't do when it's on the layout

Thank you, the skiers are tirelessly descending again

After 2.5 months at sea, I returned to Zagreb and visited Backo. Storms and floods on 19.7 also affected him, again water penetrated into the basement, which is still drying.
UserPostedImage
Learned by the experience of the flood a few years ago, he keeps more valuable tools and things in a higher position in the cupboards so that there was no major damage. The cabinets will be replaced with newer ones with high legs.
UserPostedImage
Since they are going on annual vacation, they worked only on Fridays and Saturdays, and there was not much work on the layout.

The contact network is completed on this part

There are still some completed and new details

Today I visited them again and asked how the crane works?
The answer was No way! It is a question of bad, fragile plastic at many critical points of transport, the parts are made exactly according to the scale, but then they cannot take all the forces that occur when starting, winding on pulleys, etc.
The management itself is very clumsy because you have to connect directly to the faller and that every time anew? There are no stops to stop the engine, so you have to be very careful.
The crane will only serve as a very expensive decoration!

When I was visiting, I asked where the crane was, how did it work?
The answer was: It absolutely does not work, it is just an expensive toy to look at!
All moving parts are to scale and made of poor quality plastic that is brittle and breaks easily under pressure. For example, with a large pulley on which 4 ropes are wound, they become entangled when winding or unwinding and the upper part is bent.
There is no limiter/sensor for moving parts, so it comes to the end of the track. The management software is downloaded from the Faller site, where you have to stay the whole time and log in again every time after a break.
The crane can be used for occasional and very careful play, but it is certainly not suitable for frequent use.
These are difficult words spoken to me by a man who spent two weeks patiently and carefully assembling this crane, in order to
ultimately disappointed.
For the crane, you need to buy a drive separately, which means another 370 euros less in your pocket or bill, plus 400 for plastic!
UserPostedImage
Motors with a reducer that are in the picture can be obtained from the Chinese for a couple of euros, the electronics for their control costs about the same, and then with a little software it is sold for 370 euros!
The plastic for the crane does not cost much, although the injection molds are very expensive, but on a larger batch you can really make money from the price of 400 euros (I see that they have now lowered it to 340)
