All the station track has been laid. What's left to do here is the engine service area.

ere we go, the very first video of the Breitenbach to Rosenheim Railroad Version 3! I spent the day installing a temporary DCC bus so I can run a train from Bad Adomeit to the West staging yard and back. 

The train is a typical commuter train of the sixties. I hope you'll enjoy watching this!

Thanks, Mike, for posting this video!

It brings back a lot of memories from childhood days, when we lived in Rheydt. My dad took me to the train station on Saturdays, where we could see the DB class 24, equipped with the smaller Witte smoke deflectors, pulling a string of "Umbauwagen" - just like in your video. By 1966, the last one of this nippy little engines was taken out of service and sent to the scrapper. 2 are preserved, but none of them in operating condition.

 

Happy times!

Interesting video Michael.

I'm just a dude with a bad back having a lot of fun with model trains, and finally building a layout!

The world is still flat at the Rosenheim station but at least all the roadbed has been cut out:

Luckily I didn't forget that staging yard underneath Rosenheim. I hate the location I had to put it, wish I had more space...

I glued foamboard on top of the plywood in preparation for the staging tracks:

 

I also installed roadbed and painted it so I can lay track before the Rosenheim station gets installed on top:

I spent the morning gluing down 142 pieces of roadbed. That completes the first layer. The second layer will take a bit longer because I'll have to laser the parts first.

I have started to add the second layer of roadbed, starting with the ramp:

 

Next came the left side of the station which meant drilling holes for 12 switch machines as well:

I've done it, the Rosenheim station is complete! Tomorrow I will seal and paint the roadbed, then the track laying can begin smiley.
