How did you improve your rolling stock? (Worldwide Models)


Recommended Posts


Neither Japanese nor N scale, but I guess this is the best place for it. A guy from the club and I fit automatic couplers to my Roco E444. In this short clip I coupe some coaches, drive forward a few cm and then activate the coupling process.

Which automatic coupler product did you use and how did you fit it? I have a little DR BR 114 from Roco that I planned for automatic coupler installation, but didn't get any progress yet. Mine was also a factory DCC & sound version with probably preloaded coupler programs. I think they have the electric connection points reserved on the circuit board but really couldn't find more information about it.

Märklin E117993. There are a few instructions on the Zimo website on how to wire them up to work with a Roco loco 🙂

in the last few years i have seen some models weather in TT. I only used brushes (make-up brushes) and colors from Games Workshop. Most recently, a DB BR140 in the faded paint was my last job.

This week I want to do the this with a DD51 or DE10 🤨





And a BR44 der DR at the End of the Era DR





Freight cars 😄




On the Last picture you can see the original Cars at the End.

The wagons are really well made, the look incredibly real.


The problem with weathering, I find, is that if you start you have to weather everything as the gap between clean plastic and weathered rolling stock becomes too noticeable.
