Some weeks ago I bought this tinplate ETS reefer car. It must be a reefer since it is for meat transport. Special about it is that it is lettered for a large and well known meat processor and slaughterhouse in the Netherlands which existed until 1970. The railroad it is lettered for is the Dutch Staat Spoorwegen (state railway)  which merged into the Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) in 1917.

Interesting correlation between the Marx 999 and the Strauss #30 floor train I picked up this week. The Strauss is missing the smokestack but even the windup mechanisms are the same. Looks like the litho colors were simply reversed.

Not much new right now. I hope to have some soon and am also working on prepping my train room for a layout. In the meantime, here are some archive pictures.

This is a Lionel 218 dump car I restored. I used a royal blue Rustoleum enamel on this with my airbrush.

This is what I believe to be a completely original Lionel 213 in C8 condition. It was one of the first tinplate cars I bought, and I really overpaid at auction. It came with a certificate that it was part of Richard Kuhn's Car Rail collection.

Hello,
for a while, I have found a Bing coach 62/160 as Southern. Was never in the Bing catalog.

The condition was bad.

After cleaning and removing the rust, the condition was much better.

I think, Bing had never made a matching baggage car, so I have made my own.

A layout was made on computer and laminated on a tin sheet. The tin was from a old solvent canister.

Now it´s finished and looks like a orginal car.

Thats some "Mad Skillz " right there Arne !

Unfortunately I have nothing new this week to show off on this thread

So instead I will off topic and default to something else from the Musee de Fatmane

A lovely little prewar car set from I think either Distler or Tippco, most likely Distler.

Cars are marked "Foreign" below the back window which suggests between wars exported to the UK .

A lovely feature of these is the integrated bumpers which change the cars direction in case of an accident !

I collect several versions of these in my non-train life , Marx , British marx etc

Also I love clockwork track based items such as

Just a selection

Cant be trains all the time hey?  ( me ducks!!! )

 

 

Clockwork guys have a spring in their step!

Great work!

Another question - how did you arrive at the shape and dimensions for the layout?  Did you have a disassembled car to work from, or something else?

Thanks.
