Roaming wagon Square Foot Estate Railway

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

SFER #4 at Pender - 3 of 3

Postby trac555 » Sun Jun 24, 2012 3:51 pm

The repaired #4 is immediately put into service to help reduce the backlog.
Image

It moves raw materials into the plant, finished goods out to shipping, and plant supplies to where they are needed.
Image

After an extremely busy week, filled with overtime, Pender’s backlog is completely caught up largely due to the hard work of SFER #4.
Image

So it is with both gratitude and regret that Superintendant Bullock sends #4 out to Shipping for its next assignments in Germany.
Image

To be continued from Germany.

Hi all,

after SFER #4 a time was kept imprisoned by the German tariff, it is arrived to me in this week :D
Now I had some work, up forests the jungle on my DCR :wink:
The layout had rather suffered under the removal (800 km) and was very dirty :roll:

Also I have done a small film.

Now SFER #4 is on the way to Nuernberg.

Yes - it lives!

I can't see any more dirt on this layout than is present on the real one!

I had a long telephone conversation with the officer.
When I told him of the GnATTERbox and he has seen the little wagon, he was convinced :D

Paul, you're right, but it was very dry in this year :lol:

Ian, the dirt on my layout consisted primarily of spiders and dust.
But they were not in scale :wink:

Today SFER #4 visited the "Zeche Eimerweise" in Nuernberg.

Unfortunately my friend Christian has no time at the moment, which is why I show his pictures for him.

And he has done only a very small movie.

Now SFER #4 is on the way to Juergen.

Well, meanwhile Number 4 arrived at the Kraehwinkel shores.

Mr. Haempel, the local teacher, decided to throw in an axtra geographie lesson, explaining the wagon´s route so far. He choose one of the APA caves for the event.


Image

At the same time, he took the chance to explain the difference of 1 : 24 and 1 : 22,5 scale in Gn15 modelling.


Later I sent the wagon out to a little rivet transport across the local Pizza.
No Gn15 modeller should be without one.


Image

The armoured guard says, one should prime models with some dark colour, if one plans to take pictures in bright sunshine. Otherwise the light will shine right trough.

The wagon is leaving the Pizza now and looks for some more track to explore in the neighbourhood.

Image

At the weekend it will be at the Toeffelholm Bahn, 60 km from here.

Have Fun

Juergen

I forgot to mention, the wagon was brought in, accompanied by the brass band of the local Enrico Malatesta Junior High School.

The press presentation for the Paparazzies will be tomorrow or at some later day.

Have Fun

But copies of it were photographed in Shen Zhen (Southern China)
yesterday:

Christian is touring there with the Nuernberg Philharmonics. In his Cello case there is always room for some Gn15 trains.

Have fun

Ok Guys,
This appears to be getting a bit static and it must be about time for No.4 to come home.

Can we now please arrange to return the wagon to New Zealand?

Also can anyone that hasn't yet sent me high res photos please email them so Gavin and I can start looking at compiling a book about the tour.

Thanks for all your photos so far it’s been fun watching them come in.

Cheers,
Ben
