Now, that would catch my eye on a construction site. I think maybe this guy dug one too many sewer pipes, That methane is deadly. :)

I've looked at that photo for quite awhile now and don't see any problems with it. Any hints?

BTW, I love the train :kiss:

Beverly,
This is a tough one. Especially if you don't have the train.
The square and battery are paper ENLARGED COPIES. As the Square/battery are OVERSIZED, the real Z train appears even smaller.
One member caught it last time, maybe a year ago, because I cut off the top of the shadows, they did not continue up the wall.
I don't remember what the exact scale works out to now, But the Z 1:220 train "APPEARS" to be something like 1:340.
Thanks for showing an interest- I'll transfer 3 points to you for being a good sport;)
Happy Rails,
Fred

Thanks for the points, Fred :)

I guess if I had put together all the elements from the photo in real life and compared them, I would have hopefully seen the mistake.

If that's your train, or if you know anything about it, please give me details. The orange locomotive and tender look great with the yellow cars. Okay, that probably sounds a bit like an interior decorator talking... umm, er, ahhh. But, really, that locomotive looks very cool B)

Beverly, The engine and tender are from Marklin- I call it the Bumble Bee. Maybe someone else can give you the proper number and terminology. The Overland passenger cars are Brass and Out Of Production. It does make a nice Old Timey train.

I also wanted to do some exterior design work, landscaping, ( make that read- planting LGB track so my BIG trains could blossom in the sunshine ) but Dragonlady put all four feet down, and promised she would lead the picket line!:S
She also strongly inferred it would be detrimental to our marital bliss and extremely hazardous to my health.:woohoo:

Hello Beverly,

I also think this little beauty looks cool. It is the 88035 , which was new in 2004 and in the Maerklin program of 2005 and 2006. Unfortunately I didn't buy it then. I don't know about the cars shown in the picture, but at the same timeframe there was the 87910 set of passenger cars.

In 2006 the 81438 set was available.

GreetingZ, HilZen,

ULie,

Thank you for the links. I love that locomotive and tender :kiss:

Fred,

Um, I'm kind of the Dragonlady over at my house, and I'm not that crazy about actually being called "Dragonlady". Pssst - I'll let you in on a little secret.... Sweetie, Dear and My Lovely Wife are better choices if you intend on keeping up with your interior decorating ;) Oh, and don't get yourself (or your wife!) any train stuff for Valentine's Day :)

Steamers are good but that's not what's wrong.
