After almost a year since I acquired my Marklin 29400 starter set, I still don't have a permanent layout. Nevertheless I have a track plan and have started work on various buildings. The latest is a kit bash of the Vollmer #43697 Drinks Distributor to a Gasthof. In a fit of vanity I have named it "der Bogenshutze", a pun on my surname, "Bowman" (or archer). I still have some painting to do (the roof tiles will be more orange) and I need a biergarten complete with tables and drinkers served by a waitress dressed in dirndl dress.

What the kit would have looked like if assembled out of the box. I didn't think the single storey storeroom was appropriate for an inn.

I'm sure that the storeroom will come in useful somewhere else on the layout.

It could be they sold their own beer and distributed it you could have beer delivery trucks there. In front of mine of have a wedding party which reminds me years ago when my cousin in a small town (Trebur) was married and I was there.

Hello Keith,


Your building looks great - just the place for a lovely biergarten out the back ThumpUp .


I also saw the requirement for a biergarten on my layout.

Unfortunately (we were operating at the time as a franchise of "München Biergartenen") our business could
not afford (despite being subsidised by Frankfurter Allgemeine) the rent of any of the surrounding prestigious
historical properties on the Kunststoffstrasse in the Altestadt above the station (see fourth image) but we were
lucky enough to come by this space leased from the DB:

Set above the main lines:

Looking down upon the Hauptbahnhof and Hauptbahnhofstrasse:

and with a nice view back up along the main line straights whilst waiting approximate to your train's
departure for the reisende of Altbach:

Due to the efficiency of the Preiserling workers in Atlbach we are kept in good supply of the amber fluid
healthfood received continuously from the goods depot siding BigGrin :

I would however respectfully offer one word of caution for your consideration in regard to placing a
biergarten on your layout - the Preiserlings are renown drinkers (they tend to get a plasticful !) and
unfortunately our proximity to the station and the tight bend at the bottom of the street descending
to Hauptbahnhofstrasse has resulted in a few calamitous incidents OhMyGod :

At our biergarten it has become known locally as "Donner und Blitzen corner":

Have fun with your trains Laugh (but keep an eye on those intoxicated Preiserlings!)


Regards,

PJ

Great photos of your layout, PJ. You've certainly captured a lot of animation in your biergarten and given me a lot of ideas.

The shot of the Fosters beer wagon reminded me of the advert on British TV featuring Paul Hogan. When asked by a fellow traveller on a London railway station platform what was the best way to Cockfosters, he replied, "Drink it warm I reckon".
