Where were you? You could have dropped by...

We were in Bad Peterstal-Griesbach, about 10 to 15 clicks east of Offenburg...  :)
Miniatures you say? Well I too, like to live dangerously...

Not to far then. I'm about to catch a train to Offenburg...

Then we probably were in the same type of train you're taking inspiration from :)

We came there by car, but because of the tourist cards we received from our landlady, public transport was free, so we went to Freiburg by train. Small local train like yours to Offenburg and an intercity from Offenburg to Freiburg.

A great experience, especially since my daughter really likes traveling by train. Too bad that we decided to return right during rush hour though. Had to stand most of the way back... ::)

This is the state of play on the driving trailer; it's now primed, but I need to add lots of pipes on the front end before I can paint it. The end result of the pipes will probably look a bit like the RHB's ABe 8/12 units (Link to image), which in contrast to their standard gauge equivalents, can't push all the service connections into a coupling.


Progress will continue when I've got materials together to make said pipes. In the meantime, I've been getting ideas again about more vehicle conversions for tabletop games...

Looking great! But you missed a ] in the picture's link; easy fix though :)

The pipes/hoses will absolutely add more interest to the front, which is always nice!

Oh, poo. Now fixed. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks @Michi for the image.
