    Thanks Walt.
    This is very interesting to build this station building. It take long time to have it designed but it is also a very nice facts searching exercise to have it prototypical. The really interesting story is that actually original building has been bought by railway enthusist two years ago as a ruin and it is restored now. The station even have it's FB profile: https://www.facebook.com/stacja.nojewo/
    So I am glad to have an access to some old photos and consultancy concerning details.

    There is some progress in my work with the model. I started to work on rain water pipes. The first to be done are horizontal pieces. The starting point for this job:

    At first I tried to get this assembled with the help of CA glue but this was not strong enough so I decided to explore my (small) soldering skills:

    The first gutter installed:

    Sope carpenter's work on next module. I hope to have an option to run trains on joined together modules in some months... This module is 99x40 cm and allows to turn the train by 180 degrees. Two such modules will provide an opportunity to run trains on the single loop and to integrate regular "stratight" modeles between them.

    Matt,
    Thank you for suggestion and for carefull examination of Faller bridge description. This bridge actually was build by Germans and destroyed in 1945. There are two hyphotesis about destruction: Russian tank was to heavy or Germans blown it up. It is interesting that some remainings still exists: stone remainings are used for new bridge.Some parts of iron bridge were found in the river. There are some discussion how to display those remainings. More info in links to Polish language WWW pages - there are some interesting photos and pictures:

    Well, seems you can build it as if it had been restored, or as a remnant of the old days :)

    Hi Pawel, looking good. Did you build in super elevation of the track in the curves? nice!

    Matt

    BTW, see you in Altenbeken? I will be there on saturday.

    Superelevation was not my intention. I think the photo is laying a bit ... but while testing the loco on this U shape I noticed it on one of two curves. This is side effect of my mistakes while preparing cork roadbed... But it looks great ! BTW, after reading your message I came into idea hot to make superelewation intentionally and relatively easily. My concept is:
    - use a cork roadbed
    - glue the cork
    - sand of the inner part of cork roadbed on curves to get superelevated cork
    - place and glue the truck
    - ballast the track
    - enjoy the look of the layout
    - get congratulations from fellow modellers ;)
    - enjoy the look of the trains on curves :)

    Pawel, thanks for being honest with us. You could have just smiled and say, yeah, I did that pretty good, didn t I? :LOL::rolleyes:

    However, when planning to do realise superelevation, this tip might work for you. It seems to me a bit tedious to go and sand the cork. I glue a small Evergreens polystyrene strip on the cork where the outer rail will come, then glue on the track. I used 0,5 mm height. The glue will fill the void.
    That height is about right when compared to 1:1. My friend Wiki tells me superelevation in The Netherlands is maxed at 150mm (0,68 mm in Z), but lesser on several occasions, such as along platforms. In Germany it is about the same.

    See ya in Altenbeken ;)
