That's good work by Mr Aykut, and as for the modelling of the station: when I disembark at Karakoy, please tell me which way I must walk to find a pleasantly shaded cafe serving freshly pressed cherry juice?

Hello,

QUOTE (chris chan @ 11 Feb 2009, 13:38) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Interesting! Can you tell us more about the Turkey railbus? Was it withdrawn from Germany?

I did some quick research in the book "Schienenomnibusse aus Uerdingen Band 1" (railbuses from Uerdingen vol. 1) published by EK-Verlag.

In 1989 DB sold 25 motor cars of class 798, 25 control trailers and 15 ordinary trailers without luggage compartments to Turkey. All but ten trailers were painted in those colours which were the DB regional railways colours of the time. Thy did not last long in Turkey and most of them were withdrawn from 1995 onwards.

Regards

Christoph

Well, Abd & Aykut have done it again


Two Maerkliners that I am glad to know personally.

Remember the Maerklin thread we had? These two are die hard fans, but as John Woodall correct fully puts it; they are above all; bona fide modelers and I am proud to know them both. ...( although we have a once'n a while argument on studs
)
