Breitenbach and Rosenheim are names of real places in Germany, but if I understood Michael correctly, the towns on his layout will be completely freelanced.

Happy times!

I have rolling stock made by Fleischmann, Trix, Roco, Brawa, Piko, Liliput, Hobbytrain, and others. The names of the towns have a special meaning for us, Rosenheim is a play on our last name, Breitenbach is the name of a Bavarian village we once lived in (never had a train station though Big Smile).

Any brands that dominate your roster?    

I'm partial to Rosenheim.  My grandparents are buried there.

The majority of my rolling stock is Roco and Piko.

Are the towns anywhere near the Black Forest? My only knowledge is i bought a cockcoo clock, always wanted one, made in the Black Forest.

As I've said before, the layout is freelanced and has no particular locale in Germany.

The real Rosenheim is in southern Bavaria, between Munich and Salzburg (Austria) and there fore quite a distance from the Black Forest.

There are two towns in Germany with the name Breitenbach, but both are not anywhere near the Black Forest.

Sorry!

Happy times!

The second train of the day is the famous "Rheingold" first class passenger train of 1962. Unfortunately I only have 4 cars and they are not available anymore.

I've added another of the longer staging tracks this morning. This is a nice long freight pulled by an E95 locomotive.

I added another staging track today. The train is something special, it's the only train my son ever gave me as a birthday gift. I wish he could be here to see it run...

Is this a layout construction thread or a "showing off my model collection" thread?  I'm very interested in the former and couldn't care less about the latter.

Strange to see a thread get hijacked by the OP. Smile

I have the right to remain silent.  By posting here I have given up that right and accept that anything I say can and will be used as evidence to critique me.

Well, building a staging yard is part of the layout construction I believe. But don't worry, there's only 2 more trains and then the yard is complete and I will reach the visible part of the layout.
