You may have noticed that over the last year, I haven’t actually built any modules despite doing the design work and finding suitable plenty of suitable locations. Unfortunately, my plan to have a space to build those modules hasn’t come to be… yet. However, I’ve still got the desire to build something and practice modelling techniques but to make this a realistic prospect anytime soon, it’s going to need something small, relatively cheap and easy to store.
I’ve talked in previous posts about wanting to create small modules or cameos; where the scenery is of equal importance to the trains and where the scenic elements are used to frame a scene. T-Trak modules might be the answer…
The Stadtbahn is the main overground east-west railway in the city of Berlin, Germany. This entirely elevated, four track route carries an interesting array of S-Bahn (the Berlin metro), regional and express passenger trains (from Germany and further afield) through the city centre.
It’s that time of year when all the major manufacturers start releasing the details of the new products they will be bringing to market.
I spend an imaginary fortune looking through all the catalogues thinking about what I’d like to buy but there is one product from Lemke Hobbytrain that I really might have to purchase and that’s the BR 481 of the Berlin S-Bahn.
