hello folks....

tha last few weeks were very busy. lot's of work with little spare time for trains.

but i still managed to paint another "every child matters" cp rail engine. the first one has been sold.

decals for the hapag lloyd unit are on their way. hope they make it here before xmas.

then finally , after months of collecting dust, work continued on a few f40ph units. all will be painted in via rail colors. unfortunately the 3d-printed shells are of a low quality. even after a light coat of primer the details of the fans and air intakes are no longer visible. so i will drop these shells and rebuild the original kato ones. at least that was the plan. unfortunately the additional hep parts for the rear end are no longer available. maybe i have one or two left. somewhere. just need to find them.

in the meantime i've been running trains for hours. the four rapido fp9 units are quite nice. after a few hours of running in they perform smooth now. but they need to have the wheels cleaned every 1-2 hours. have to figure out how to fix that issue.

so stay tuned, as soon as some of the locos are finished i will post some pictures.
