    The garden is tidy and the sections still under construction are covered with tarpaulin. And since 30min wind has come up, the temperature drops and it looks like rain. Nevertheless, I am satisfied with what I have done since March on track, including 5 points. Based on the raw materials rigid foam boards for bathroom fittings, Styrodur / Styrofoam, High Pressure Laminate, WPC and concrete, I also found my very own style of construction this year from the many ingenious suggestions and tips here. If frost and winter are not causing any unforeseen problems, I think I have found my base on which I will continue to build successfully next year. And I have found that in the course of the year in the German-speaking model railway forums reactions to H0 in the garden of mockery and "that's not" has turned into real interest and the first noticed that while no one has a 300 square meter hobby cellar, but so much space in the garden ... 😂 But that would all have been impossible without you and this forum here. That's why a big thank you to all who made this forum possible and shared their experiences and knowledge with me and with advice were helpful to me! Best Regards Thomas

    Hello everybody! From the day after tomorrow the weather will be wet, cold and windy, that means it will be autumn. Therefore, today was the end of construction for the year 2018, at least outdoor. Because what I have done today must now dry until tomorrow and tomorrow then the tarpaulin is pulled over the construction site, at least over the parts that are not yet completely frost-resistant finished. Regards Thomas

    My room as a kid, the one in which my first model railroad layout was, my father had paneled with just such panels. Even without painting or glaze. Therefore, I associate with such an untreated wood paneling a lot of beautiful memories, also and especially in terms of model railroad

    I would leave it as it is, do not paint or varnish.

    This morning you can slowly guess how it will be!

    Hi, hello Tony! Well, it did get a bit cooler but still too warm for the end of October too much too sunny and too dry. Which greatly pleases me! 😂 I have now tackled the second turnouts and hope to finish them until next Monday. I never thought it would make it this year. The substructure is ready and the turnouts, weighted with stones, wait for the two-component adhesive to set. Regards Thomas

    Hello Tony! The cable-stayed bridge is a self-made by the seller. The bridge rails by Micro Engineering are the ones in the picture below, but unfortunately they do not fit on my steel bridges. Regards Thomas

    Since here is still the same weather as in the summer, I've done more stuff today. Among other things, the bridge equipped with tracks, the tracks on the bridges connected to the "mainland" and laid and wired additional track.

    Hello Mick! Good work your wood paneling! Regards Thomas

    Wanted to equip the steel bridges with bridge track from Walthers, but 420 euros for 6m track? No way! Then I have discovered bridge tracks from Micro Engineering, 3 feet for 17 euros, have now ordered 2 feet to test.

    Hello Mick! I will only set up catenary poles, no wires. To my surprise, the tracks are pretty clean. The rails of Roco and Tillig also show no corrosion. And the rain removes fat and dust pretty well (that seems more an indoor problem). Except for the filth I've caused myself while ballasting, so far I have little dirt amazingly. In this respect, I think with a LUX rail grinding and vacuum cleaning cars with battery drive, I get that right at the point. And in case of coarse dirt, a real vacuum cleaner is used. The last picture shows how dirty my tracks are after six months ... Regards Thomas
