  1. Deutsche Bahn refuses to purchase the remaining 25 IC2 TWINDEXX sets (5 cars + one loco) from bombardier due to continued problems with the software (aka features). The features include: - The loco and the 5 cars are a set and cannot be uncoupled. One car stops working? That’s it, whole train stops working. You can’t switch out the car and the whole set needs to be repaired. - When reversing, computers crash and take about 30 minutes to reset, if that even succeeds. - The second iteration sets feature a dark mode. Meaning that randomly the lights refuse to turn on.
  2. Although I'm mainly known for Z gauge these days back in the eighties and nineties my main interest in railway modelling was gauge 1 either in 1/32nd scale for German or 10mm to the foot for British outline. I exhibited two gauge 1 exhibition layouts. Mardy Colliery was a representation of a typical National Coal board colliery with small industrial locomotives and typical British four wheel wagons. It was immensely popular on the show circuit but had a fatal flaw in its construction and its days were numbered as the baseboard tops began to sag at an ever increasing rate. I had al
  3. Can anyone tell me the general location or region where this scene was recorded? I'm curious about the rolling stock on the far side track, the *high floor* single level s-bahn stock being used in push pull formation with an electric locomotive. Never seen that kind of setup.
  4. Well, unlike most itineraries posted which are about Japan trips, living in Japan, mine is Europe-based. A bit shorter than my previous more touristic forays to the continent, it is concentrated almost exclusively on train riding and watching/photography (pretty much like my travels in Japan). Lodgings are typically business hotels near the main stations, similar to my Toyoko Inn travel pattern (though about 50~60% more expensive). July-Aug. 10 days. Solo. 1st day- Arrival at Munich early evening nonstop flight from Haneda AP. Train to Nuremberg on Munich-Nuremberg HSL (I want to catch
  5. Any German speakers out there, asking for help regarding the availability of paper timetables at DB stations. It seems the system-wide timetable has ceased to be published, but the smaller, station-based timetables are still provided behind the counter, but you must ask for them at a nominal charge. Could you tell me what is the German term for these timetables (something perhaps along the line of "all services from this station"). I may be making a summer trip and visiting some of the bigger hub stations in southern/central Germany, and want the correct term so I can build a collection. B
  6. Hi, My first model of Robel Bullok 54.22 Track Maintenance Vehicle - DB Bahnbau (kibri 16100) arrived 2 months ago but the work at the workbench started almost immediately! The parts included on this kit: I looked to the cabin I took the immediate decision to remove all engraved handrails and apply new ones. The following photos shows the original engraved plastic handrails: The next 2 photos shows all handrails removed and the 0,35mm holes already made and ready to receive the new metal handrails Finnaly with the new metal handrails applied but not fixed yet.
