Hi Folks

no its time to start my next project:)

I have planned 4 module, both end will have the same plate as the Z-friend US division.
The two middle modules are for me to play in my cellar.

It shows a small yard in Flaggstone, near Flagstaff, Arizona.
There are 3 Industries who needs waggons, a junksyard, a oil (or gas) deposit and a warehouse.

The cyan track is the mainline, for the us with the us-division the module must be change the front side, so is the mainline in the back.
Here ist the trackplan, I will use the mircotrain tracks und turnouts.



The red tracks are Märklin, the grey parts are special modules for myself to play at home (or at an convention) B)

I will use only digital DCC (I have the Rautenhaus Control, so I cann use Sx and DCC together) to drive, the turnouts will be change with servos and manuel.

The last days I weatherd all my locos and waggons, see the pics in the gallery

Hi Jürgen, I like your modules plan. I t looks like you can have lots of fun operations, and lots of railcars on it. I wish Z-Bend Track had nice alignment plates like your modules have, to make setup more precise.

Hi Kelly

I will change the teritorry from Arizona to Wiconsin or Missouri,
because UP is not in the North-Arizona Area and I will work together with Manfred.
We prefere the greener midwest (Manfred has a 45° curve and he use green gras
and grey rocks). And I / we have more severel Industries as in Arizona.

they give me an new controler and so he updatet my controler (2. time)

Hi

its time for a update from my Modules.
In the last 2 month I fixed all the wires to the servos, coupler and so
Between the MTL tracks I filled it up with cork, all tracks are gravelled and paintet.

Now I can build some kits from Monrose Models and BAZ.
Also the background ist now in the correct size (it was made with the USA-DVD from JoWi).

Hello Juergen,

I really like the weathering on your rolling stock. And by the way, is that two MTL Christmas boxcars that are weathered? I think you should earn bonus points for that. If they are, I have never seen any of those cars weathered before.

Hi John

I buy long time ago 4 of the christmas boxcars for a cheap price :)
But I don´t like this kind of design so I weathered the boxcars.
