I've made a start on the stock for the German HO layout I have under construction.

I've begun adding NEM Kadees and am very impressed by how easy it is to do and how effective they are. I'm glad I've decided to go that way for this project.

For the weathering, I have some ideas and have tried a few of them but I do have a problem with research in this area. I've not been to Germany since 1998 but the layout is set around 2000 so don't have any later photos. Can anyone recommend a good website which shows German freight stock? What I could do with is a German version of Paul Bartlett's excellent resource.

Additionally, can anyone recommend a supplier of DB wagon decals in HO?

Photos will follow in due course.

Thanks

steve

Those links are most useful for me as well, Alastair; especially the Kaminski site, as my little continental effort is based around the post-war era.

The one place I know of that sells (or at least, sold) German transfers is the German Railway Society, http://grs-uk.org/ Steve......I've seen transfers for sale on their exhibition stand in the south east/home counties area anyway, although I couldn't find any reference to transfers on their website.
It might be worth contacting them and asking what (if anything) they've got.
Best of luck!
Simon

Interested to watch progress on this one Steve. German railways I haven't tried yet, but the seed is starting to sprout (as it were). I have a few TT bits so probably go that way.
Was in Hamburg last week (not long enough to visit Miniatur Wunderland) but the odd glimpse of a train or stretch of rail had my mental camera clicking away!
Very Happy

(EDIT) picked up a copy of 'MIBA' from the airport too Wink

Look forward to seeing how this goes. I moved here in 2000 so I can just remember the days of the silver and orange S-Bahn and the blue IC trains, and silberlinge with mesh luggage racks and pseudo-leather seats. DB has improved a lot in the last ten years.

If I can help our with local colour or anything let me know...
