My Swiss Goods Shunting Fleet

Hi All,

Just trying to figure out how to post images

This is my Trix Ee 3/3 Fitted dcc and Krois digital uncoupling system on the layout I have recently started.

The Goods shed is scratchbuilt, plastic card, cladded with real wood strips, still loads to do yet.. but I think it has a Swiss rural "flavour".

If any interest is shown, I shall be happy to post progress pics or even start a blog, maybe

This is my latest recruit a vintage Rivarossi Em 3/3 ( made in 1988) it needed some modification to get it to run on dcc, but its now become my favourite loco.

And yes, you guessed it, shunting is "what floats my boat"

Hello Busybeas,

I understand that with shunting the exact track layout is very important in order to get maximum buoyancy out of a fact it needs care to ensure it is not actually impossible to get the yellow wagon onto the red siding between the blue and green wagons etc.! Do you have a trackplan that you could post?

, but its my life "therapy".. and its important to keep my sanity in this very busy world we live in.
I do hope you will enjoy what I share with you..

More pics soon..

I really like the atmosphere that you capture in this post, with something so well conceived to escape to I am sure it will be a very rewarding experience. I suspect that some modellers who like the prototype of X railway and so buy the models may struggle when it comes to a layout because they don't associate, beyond the visual asthetics of the prototype, with the whole world that it neatly fits into and is a consequence of...glad you don't have this problem!! Look forward to more pictures as progress is made...
