Today turns out to be a productive day for me. I added another parking spot, this time for a passenger train with an electric E10 locomotive at the front:

The second train of the day is a Swiss TEE that normally doesn't belong on German tracks but I'll just ignore the prototype in this case and run it anyway because it's so pretty:

I've added the track that leads into the staging yard. The next step will be getting some plywood and continuing the five staging tracks at the back into the layout room.

What are the big gaps, without ties, between some of your tracks?

I cut off 4 ties at every end to make it easier to troubleshoot the track in the future if something happens. This way you can move the rail joiners if you have to replace a piece of track or - more likely - a turnout. In the staging area looks don't count.

After getting some plywood yesterday I managed to get the first piece cut so I can extend the staging yard into the layout room. Tomorrow I will cut the remaining pieces and the necessary supports and hopefully screw and glue it all in place.

This should be enough space to park another few trains:

I cut the supports, glued them in place and screwed the plywood on top. Now I need a layer of foamboard and then the track can come!

The layout is really shaping up quick, looking forward to seeing some trains out in the layout room.

Hey Michael-

Did you post a narrative of the locale and era of the latest version of the layout?

Some of us aren't too familiar with European railroads.

Thanks. Keep up the good work.

Robert,

the layout is completely freelanced, no reference to any existing towns or stations in Germany. Rolling stock is a mix of era III and IV which means roughly from the fifties to the seventies. Locale is somewhere in the middle of Germany where you have mostly hilly country.

They sure are.  

 

Hello Michael. Is your rolling stock Fleischman and Roco?

If freelanced, is there any signifigance to the Breitenbach and Rosenheim name?
