Only a couple of pictures tonight, as I spent too much of the evening talking. 16 persons present and it was good to welcome visitors Steve, Ken and Martin. Plenty of trains were on the move…..
So, a couple of links to make up for the lack of ESNG pictures (probably a whole lot more interesting, anyway.)
First, a video (in German) about the large model of Stuttgart station, and how it was moved after the owner’s death. I liked the shots of them carrying bits of the layout out of its home in the depths of an S-Bahn station. Parts of the layout have been shown as static exhibits in recent years at the Stuttgart show. It will soon be a historic record, as the station is being replaced by an underground through station set at 90 degrees to this one. Some of the extensive yard have already been redeveloped.
Secondly a link to a site on Middle-Eastern railways. Not an area we hear much about – at least about its trains – and a lot of magazine to read.
