Hi All,
Progress on my layout "Irgendwo" (somewhere!) has been glacially slow I'm afraid.
Mum-in-law being terminally ill, dad-in-law not much better, business steady and helping out with my club - all contribute and take their toll.
However, I'm finally making progress on rolling stock, may I introduce certain items on here?

I've recently completed a large amount of horse trading with an old friend that sees me acquire much of his Prussian stock in exchange for my Bavarian stock, not to mention some reading matter. Here is my 'new' Trix T3 along with some Fleischmann coaches;





CC my very good friend Doug and seen on his layout, Alte Rinkham.
Apparently, the T3 originated between 1881 and 1910 and on the Prussian railways, they numbered some 1345 examples in total. This particular version (431 examples) was built between 1895 and 1905, the Fleischmann version (which I also have!) only numbered 52 copies. There are only some quite minor differences between the two types, mainly around the water tank.
This loco should be capable of hauling a good 36 axles on the flat, this one may need some attention as it seemed distressed at pulling more than 10 axles and very little up Dougies 3% slopes! It squealed at trying such a grade so was hurriedly assigned to a flat route.
Despite that, I am very pleased with it although I have read that it's rigid chassis* causes hesitation, it ran smoothly enough, only baulking at occasional dirty spots which were soon rectified.
Hopefully, I can show more items as time goes on?
Cheers,
John.

*For which, I have a cunning plan.

Hi John,

Good to see a new thread being started; they're few and far between these days. Hope to see more of your vintage German stock, and also that rather nice layout in the future. Interesting to see Profitrack (or at least, I think it is) painted and incorporated into loose ballast. Best of all worlds - no ballast in the flangeways but a natural look to the area between parallel tracks!

Hmm, two layouts with the same name. For the other "Irgendwo" - in "HOe" built by Gerbrand Haans - see

(i) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOs7NwG1Neo from 9.34-11.50

(ii) https://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=nl&u=http://www.gerbrandhaans.nl/index.php/vorige-banen&prev=search

I think it has also been published in CM.

Thanks Giles,
Yes! I thought that I should try and contribute something on here, there is a lot of interesting stuff but few readers I fear.
I must get some more photos of my friends layout too, you are quite right - especially as it is shortly to be dismantled due to a house move. Quite right about the Profitrack too - I think it will be used again.
Cheers,
John.

Hi Christopher,
Thanks (I think!). I operate as much as reasonable on "Stummis", a very good German forum and there are plenty of "Irgendwo's" to be seen on there, it is simply the German for "Somewhere".
HTH,
John.

I'm no great shakes as a cameraman but here is a little video I made recently.

I must add, this is on my good friends layout, Alte Rincham now sadly demolished due to moving house.
Cheers,
John.
