Beet Railway wagon and Tip-car in brass. This month I show some pictures on the finished Roebane closed wagon. Second is a test of making a tip-car in brass for Hf. Borkum City Module got the most attention this month, after the Beet Railway article was finished and Westridge Mini Meet was over with photos edited. Also put some colour on the LGB part, couldn´t stand looking at ´plywood country´ anymore...

This module is the first for my Hf trains. The size is 26in wide and 78in long.

Laurel Junction & Run

Both these stations on the LGB part got some colouring. Couldn´t stand looking at the plywood no more.. Also made valences and coloured them as well. The black part is there the tunnel will be. The list between the sky and tunnel part, marks there next level will be for the Hf railway delivering all the goods from the Match Factory and Mine, plus other smaller industries which might pop up later on..
