Came out great.That is a European steam loco perhaps Hornby or Basset Lowke..
Yes, furthest away is a Hornby “The Duke of Gloucester” and in front is the Bachmann. A Gresley V2 #60834. It’s nicely weathered. The Duke is a new one and starts off smoothly at slow speeds.
Cool very nice locos indeed!
Great thread! I collect and run Marklin. I'm (very slowly) building a layout. Here are a few locos that I bought over the last year or so...
What you REALLY should do is lay down a train set and place some plexiglass on top of it! Here it is... just waiting for that train!
Beautifully detailed locos!
Pics? May be interested
My layout but had to sell when we hit the road.
Who has a layout that has a HiFi store in the main street?
Maybe a superdetailed shop with vintage miniature speakers and stock on the shelves or in the windows. A few lit up signs, and, everything at 1970s prices!
No Hi-Fi store but It had a radio stastion (WEAK-AM) with slow blink light on the tower. WEAK was a fictional radio station from the Statler Brothers tune "Saturday Morning radio Show" with The old Roadhog and his Cadillac Cowboys. Really funny.
The S 2/6 (2 B 2) is in my opinion the most beautiful German steam engine - and Märklin did a very good job indeed!
Dudes I am kinda bummed,got out my Bowser 4-6-0 and discovered the cylinder block has Zinc pest! I smeard some epoxy on the cylinders to stabilize them while I track down a new cylinder block.The Bowser website does not list the part as available nor does the bay,they do have blocks for the E-6 Atlantic and the K-4 Pacific so I hope one of those will work..
I started with Treble-O-Lectric in 1962 (9 mm track) and graduated to N scale in 1967 and have been a model railroader ever since. I view my life interests in HiFi and model railroading equally.
Maybe a miniature white van selling miniature crappy speakers would be a cool piece??
I was watching Antiques Road Show tonight and thought that you might enjoy the Pullman car model they featured. It's at about 32 minutes.
I am really wanting to trade in all my N Gauge for Z scale. I find the smaller they get the more fascinating they are. I can only imagine what an epic layout can be made in Z-Scale on a typical 4x8 platform. But I imagine the cost will be epic as well! Those little trains are expensive! But to me the smaller they get, the more they are like watches with complications.
I should also mention T-guage, which are so small you could set one up as part of your HO diorama.
My newest acquisition; Marklin 37212.
I finally sold off all my HO stuff, I think we have one set left somewhere besides the big G scale LGB that still is waiting to be put outside in the garden, been only 15 years putting it off LMAO!!!
