Re: All Aboard! (All things Railways).

Me too. The early 2000s were pretty cool.
Everything seems so complicated now!

And in return i will also get a correct roof for use on my 1st class coach. When fixed i will post a picture of the updated coach, and when it arrives i'll post a pic of the sleeper.
A little update on this matter: the correct roof has arrived and has been installed on the car, and i have been told i could expect the bogies this week. Don't think that's going to happen, but anyway... I've got my locomotive programmed and the carbody is now sitting perfectly. At first it was tilting towards one end due to the DCC decoder.

Also, i am considering buying an extra coach for my TKAB set, a second hand Norwegian State Railways/NSB coach, to use in a (sort of) short distance/regional train that they operated. The so-called Karven. The cool thing about these coaches (they bough five, three second hand cars and two first class, one of the 2nd class was used for spares) is that they were operated for a while in two different kinds of hybrid liveries. One was the basic red and black NSB paintscheme, with intact NSB logo, but new number and registered owner. The other was with the correct TKAB logos, but still with their previous NSB scheme. I was thinking of buying a single coach and run it with the intact NSB logos, but i'm not sure if i'll go through with it or not.

Re: All Aboard! (All things Railways).

Sounds good.
I must say that may interest in model railways has waned slightly recently.
However last night I was working on the royal Deeside railways resident steam loco 'Bon Accord'.

There isn't a model available however, I have tried tampering with my other 0-4-0s to make a model of Bon Accord.

Re: All Aboard! (All things Railways).

Pardon my ignorance but what do you mean with 0-4-0?

Re: All Aboard! (All things Railways).

Its really disappointing for us UK modellers. There are so few shunters in 00 gauge. Although however we are begining to get somewhere.
There is a newly announced DJ models Austerity;
Products | DJ Models Ltd
Also a Hornby Sentinel;
R3180 Tarmac 4wDM Sentinel Industrial Shunter - Weathered Hornby

I am wondering how other countries have it with Model shunters?
Are they also neglected while companies focus on mainline express locos?

Re: All Aboard! (All things Railways).

Well guys, here it is! My new "second-hand" coach for my TKAB train.


It's not the correct number, but atleast it's the correct type of car and the correct paintscheme to fit in with the Karven train during a short period in 2001. I will be using it in both my shorter Karven train and my basic all-in TKAB night train set.

As you can see, the car is like none of the others in the train. At first, the car was used by TKAB with hardly any changes, only a new registered owner and a new car number. After a short while the NSB logo, to the right of the picture, was removed and the car was given TKAB's own logos. Then in 2002 they were repainted in a brighter red than this, black roof, and a large white TKAB logo on the side. All four of the cars that were used in traffic were retired in 2007. After that i don't know what happened to them.
