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)
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.
Good Job!! The Germans love the west and there are lots of modules of California and now Arizona..Maybe we can get the Rocky Mountains and then the Great Plains and then..I could hook up my Midwest modules!
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.
I don´t have a DCC Controler, I use the Rautenhaus RMX System.
So I have Sx an DCC together in use.
I startet 2004 with Selectrix, System Rautenhaus.
The newest is the RMX for both systems.
He updatet my old controler and change the central in March these year.
In Dortmund I was the "Testuser" , so I can told him the issues (Along the fair
they give me an new controler and so he updatet my controler (2. time)
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.
