WOW, I have a blog!!!

Ok,, Long time no write.....

Since last update i have handlayed track on my new module/layout, and i have also given up on the same layout. This is now placed permanently in the attic, not to be seen in a loooong time...

But my MR days is not over! I still have my room filled with the the good Z-scale!

So i bought a 3,5 meter long and 20cm deep shelf. I have no fancy track plan here, just a simple stretch. My main focus is going to be the Montana scenery, hills, plains, farms etc..

Right now i don't do too much, i will try to update this as soon as i do things, but you rather look at the Z board on Trainboard

As i am writing this i am looking at my SP station kit, i have built this before, but i traded it with Jürg ( check out his Rosetown If there is anything in Z he don't have i'll be supriced) To see a picture of the station i built see here

So i guess that in a month or so i will post a pic of the finished kit.. Unfortently i am unable to find the same pains as used on the last one, so the colour will be a little off, but i still think it will work..

Sorry for my English,, It's been a long time since i wrote anything at all...

Traintrip on Krøderbanen!

Today i took a nice trip with Type 24b (http://www.njk.no/kroderbanen/index.php?m=77&s=426&ID=1025) and 7 teak coaches. It was a nice trip with perfect photo conditions.
Here is the story of Krøderbanen, taken from the norwegian railroad club's homesite:
"Steam powered, standard gauge railway between Vikersund and Krøderen. It was opened as a narrow gauge line in 1872 and rebuilt to 1435 mm in 1909. It was abandoned in 1985. Since then, it has been a museum railway line operated by the Norwegian Railway Club. The travelling distance of 26 km (16 miles) makes it Norway's longest museum. Krøderen station is a superb example of an old Norwegian railway station."

For fullscreen pictures, just press the picture!

Why am i showing theese pictures om my homesite? Because i think that this is the world's moust beautiful railroad, so i want to share it with you!!
And because this is high on my " must model" list!

Maintenance of Way snow plow

This is Origninally a Micro trains line caboose.

I cut away the front. fasioned a snow plow out of a square brass sheat, cardboard and sparcle.

I also raised the cupola so the driver could se over the plow...

I weathered it slightly with pastels/powder.

NOTE: I have manipulated the pic`s slighty with photoshop.

A gas station and a bridge.

The gas station is kitbashed. And the bridge is kitbashed. As you see i have also stsrted with the mountains.

Manual turnout system.

I have always hated the look of Märklin turnouts, so i figured out a way to controll them manually for under the price of 1 electric turnout from M!

Unfortently the program i use to add things to this blog, is so poor that i cannot write instructions and place the pictures where i want them to be, so i hope you understand the way to do it with the pictures.

If you got any questions, do not hasitate to post a comment.!

This is what i have done...

Take a look at this inctruction:

The first 2 pictures shows my new NSB el 17, it is based on a swiss re 3/4.

This is a test sample of a z car with fiber optic light`s. (note: the windows is missing on this model.) This pic shows my M.U coupled f7`s. And the el 17 under progres. You can see that i also added a quite impressive background.
I am also planning to have a bridge over the rails, this is just a test posision. The bridge is kit-bashed from an old H0 model form Heljan.
