  1. Somehow there comes the desire to have an HST. Greatly staged. 👍
  2. I have now shown some hobby colleagues the picture and now knows what bell crank etc. in German means. What Google Translator offered as translations was not effective. Because it is also my goal to let one central locking drive make the switching of to points with such a linkage.
  3. To be honest, I had the tunnel portals up to a long time ago, which I brought back from Italy. I just built them up and gave the mountain a first shape with construction foam.
  4. Hello Roddy! Any help and any hint is good. Thank you for your tip, then I'll look for such a shop. Happy Easter! Thomas
  5. Hello Ian! Can you tell me where you got the bell crank and related material from? I do not find such a thing in Germany and have found that the British dealers are much cheaper and deliver faster (!!) than the traders from the continent. (Hattons has delivered my rails I ordered Friday on Tuesday. "Buy in the UK!" I can only say that.) Happy Easter Thomas
  6. Since the summer is back in Germany (it has today 28 ° C), I was busy again in the garden. The routing for the high-speed line is done to the other end of the property, a few meters of track and a bridge already finished. Unfortunately, the bridges bought at the fair in Dortmund have not arrived yet. For this I have finished one side of the "mountain in the corner" with construction foam, as soon as it is hard he is still processed with the knife.
  7. Now it will be built without a tunnel. If the bushes get bigger at some point, it can still come. Above all, it would have been the more beautiful option with the bushes as mountains.
  8. This has been done, because my husband and the gardener's boss have this morning - of course without me to consult - found that the bushes must be in the way of the railway line and made short work. I could only save sad remnants. And they do not need a tunnel anymore ...
  9. Thank you guys for your help and advices! Have now found a store in Germany that would sell me Digitrax DS52, but the prices in England are simply cheaper. In Germany I would have paid 28 € for the piece. Have also bought at hattons.uk points from Peco for 12.50 pounds the piece, which would have cost here at my dealer in Germany € 26.50. The pound currently at 1.15 euros. Since I have needed several points, the shipping costs are no longer significant.
  10. Can someone sketch me again, how exactly do I connect the central locking drive to the DS 52? I just do not want to do anything wrong. That would be nice. And if someone has an idea where to buy a Digitrax DS52 that would be helpful, because I only found seller in the US. A seller in the UK or EU would be very good. With best regards Thomas

  12. Hello Mick. The bridge consists of an 8 mm HPL plate reinforced laterally with aluminum U-profiles. The grid construction is laser cut and painted from MDF, which has no supporting function and is simply glued to the aluminum profiles. The slab tracks I glued on a 3mm hard foam board (trade name here is Forex) in matte black with Uhu Por. The Forex I glued on 14cm wide WPC boards reinforced with WPC profiles. These WPC construction is glued on Styrofoam blocks which are fixed in the ground with concrete. Best Regards Thomas
  13. So, the routing work of the High Speed Line is progressing. Through the bushes, the tracks are laid in a tube as a tunnel. In addition, the first bridges take shape.
  14. The black definitely looks much better and yes, painting this kind of bridges takes time, also when using an aerosol...
  15. Tomorrow I go to the modeling fair "Intermodellbau" in Dortmund. That's why today I've cleaned up the construction site a bit and brought everything to an end. The ramps from the parking yard to the passage outside are again in, partly new, position and the track laid. In addition, the first part of the ramp (with the two tracks) from the upper level to the parking yard and to the passage to the outside is finished. In addition, I have done the first preparatory work for the ramp from the passage to the upper level (which is the back which branches off from the switch, for me is right-hand traffic) and for the four-track expansion of the passage to the outside.
