This is an LGB Colorado and Southern Forney (27251) that I retrofitted with an LGB 65001 American Steam Sound Unit and an LGB 65011 Power Storage Unit for a gentleman in Florida.
Additionally, I installed a reed switch assembly for magnetic triggering of the bell and whistle and an external volume control.
This engine is used on a DC(analog) layout.
Busy Day at Sutterby - an O Gauge Garden Railway
A Busy Day at Sutterby Junction.
Sutterby Junction is a fictitious main line station on an extensive O Gauge
main line garden layout, loosely based on a flavour of the ECML in the late
1930's to late 40’s. A scale 2 miles run round the garden enables
Pacifics and the like to stretch their legs with scale length trains at
scale speeds of up to 90+mph and long goods trains to trundle round to
their hearts content.
The main track work is now complete, just the branch line to be rebuilt.
Whilst there is still a good bit of work to be done around the railway in
the form of scenic work, the main line is now fully operational.
Comprising mainly of twin track, with up to four and six tracks wide in a
number of places for around 50% of the layout, giving excellent operational
opportunities. Long approaches to the main station (housed indoors) and
multiple roads in the cutting area, allow plenty of scope for complex
One of the main features of this railway is the emphasis on scenic work,
something usually only carried out on indoor railways and is very rarely
attempted on garden railways. The scenic side is being constantly improved,
to give a little more “real feel” to an outside line.
The railway is run quite a bit during the summer months (good weather
permitting) and remains in place throughout the year, only the outside
buildings being taken in in the winter from around the end of November to
beginning of March.
There are one or two other items added to give a little more "realism" to
the models. The smoke effect at the tunnel exit and, on a few occasions, a
lively fire can be seen in the cab of the V2, especially when stood off the
end of the platform at Orby Bank.
Digitale Spur G Viadukt Gartenbahn - Streckenbau - G-Scale Trains Garden Railway HSB
Testfahrt auf unserer Viaduktgartenbahn ( railroad garden trestle ) u.a.
auf der neuen zweigleisigen Strecke ( double track railway ). Der große
Bogen wurde zurückgebaut. Test mit 16 zweiachsigen Eisenbahnwagen
geschoben und gezogen. Ausschnitte von der Ado LGB der aus der Lüneburger
Heide. Betoneinbettung der Gleise auf Gehwege. Von Schmalspur ( narrow
gauge ) auf Regelspur umgestellt. Auf Großen Spuren mit der LGB Spur G

und seinen Freunden und begonnen wurde mit den motorisierte Loks und Wagen
von Playmobil z.B mit der tolle TenderDampflok Nr. 4052. Perhaps the World
longest bridge viaduct in the garden. Lehmann large train. Die zukünftige

Nearly realistic model train layout from France
This nearly realistic model railway layout was created by the members of a
French railroad club. The model railroad layout is built in HO scale and
presents the railway along the Aosta Valley and the Jura Mountains. The
model train layout is constructed in various dioramas with individual
sections. Railroad modeling of rocks, trees, plants, overhead lines and
tunnels was the subject of many detailed studies, so that a really nice
model railway system is developed. More information are available at
