Some tempoaraly track laying in front of the upcoming waterfall feature. That was a hard work with cutting and setting stones exact vertically in to the edge of the backyard. I got fixed in concrete.
Just for this photograph, I added the lighthouse to it, we bought during the summer holidays in a town close to the german northsea coast.
Fall has come and the time for gardening ends up. Now it is a good moment to start the planning in the warm and dry living room. I tested some railway planning software, but I stopped researching at “AnyRail” – a product from the netherlands.
It has several advantages:
– it is payable
– it contains the G-scale tracks I need by default
– it is easy to use
– a license contains software updates up thru the next major release.
Some test laying of rails in usual gravel. It looks perfect and is a pretty cheap solution. So 140kg of that gravel costs about 10€….
Anew loco is now called mine. It’s a PIKO V100 diesel engine. The bottom is looking a little much too plastic for me. So I decided to pimp it a little by painting. I have left some Revell color in my basement. So why not get some some color on that gray plastic?
First run on gras in may 2015. Just to get a feel for size and speed of the G-scale railway. I already bought a VT98 from PIKO. So I enjoyed running it in my backyard. Nothing fundamental done up to now. No further ideas about controlling multiple trains – just an analoge tranformer.
