From Russian with love, the Moskabel Pionerskaya arrives
Posted by emdmike on Saturday, September 4, 2021 2:56 PM

My Russian Moskabel Pionerskaya train set arrived from the Ukraine today. Very Russian like packing, the minimum required, but none the less it survived the long trip to me in the USA. Engine runs good after solving a minor short. Everything cleaned up nice. I have all of the track, the bridge w/approaches, and the gateman's house. To complete my set, I need 3 signals, 3 street lamps with the glass bulb covers intact, the waving guard man and the station with its sign and glass bulb covers intact. Those will come in time. Really neat set and I am thrilled to have it

I could go cold war era correct and put a USSR ICBM on the gondola.  I have a couple empty 50cal bullets that sort of resemble a big rocket.  Which was what the guy and the train show was selling them for, they have no powder in them.  Add a couple tail fins from brass stock.  Or maybe someone offers a nice O scale missle.  There is a picture, posted below, that I would like to recreate in my train room.  But the layout will only be accessable on one side.  My train room is 8.6 feet by 9.95 feet and my calculations say the track needs that whole length with  table depth of 54/55 inches(the track is O52).
