Makes me feel as if it's a new wagon anyway...

Hello,
if you were trying to make it look rusted, then it works for me.

thoroughly enjoying this thread and would like to contribute if/when I can work out how to post photos again....Anyway, think I've sussed it again, so not a recent purchase but slightly unusual, the Trix Adler Anniversary set with a decoder built into the loco. Looks great next to the Big Boy.....
Cheers
Ian
Hello,
I haven't ever seen the original set with the different carriages before, so thanks.

Good Morning Everyone, Yes it is becoming a very interesting thread. 6991 your weathering looks great and adrian i do like the SBB wagons i did not go for those but now i wish i had. Tonkatoy welcome to the thread i do like your trix train I bought something not quite like that earlier this year for me it was Quercky but nice complete with sound it is a lot smaller in the flesh than i would have like but it is to scale.



I may have some coaches to pull for the Dampf above. Babs

Hello,
I'm not really a collector of SBB, but I seem to have more then a few now. I went for these Brawa 'branded' cars mainly because they were Era II. Like you, I've regretted not buying some of Brawa's earlier issues. Once they're gone, folk tend to hang onto them.

Do you have that Trix loco already? If the cars are matrix 'oldtimer' ones, then the trix version normally has lighting, but check first.

Two of my favourite Swiss things. I have great memories of visits to Lucerne including "fasnacht" and an eight coach IC2000 set lurking on my layout.

This is my only Swiss loco. I haven't bought any new locos for a while and this was one in the last batch, so maybe 'recent'. I now have quite a few Swiss freight cars, but no passenger.

Here is a strong 'red/black' for you Babz.
This class was all over Bavaria, maid of all work.



None were preserved, however, when they were rebuilding Treuchtlingen station a few years ago, in preparation for a high speed line, they uncovered this.....



Part of a 54.15 class loco subject to a direct hit, and consigned to the bottom of a crater in 1944. The only memory we have of this really useful class.

The remains are at the Bavarian Railway Museum in Noerdlingen - if you have never been to Noerdlingen, go, its the best town in the world for sure.

Hello,

The last of my 2015 Brawa catalogue freight cars arrived today. This completes a very modest purchasing year.
There is a set of 3 DRG passenger cars on order ; but I'm not sure that they'll be available before next year now.

Brawa 48024



Brawa 48022



I paid a premium, the full retail price (48.50) without VAT deducted; from a major outlet in Utrect NL.
What I got was the display model that wasn't repacked correctly, resulting in some minor damage.

Anyway.

Nice update. There seem to be some pictures missing or is it just my connection. Your Trix coaches arriving gives me hope mine are on the way (the twin pack has arrived, just waiting on the main pack). I also have a few more items ordered incentivized by the still strong £/Euro rate. Plus it's nearly Xmas :)
