    These Eaos-w look great. Did you use Märklin spare part trucks?

    Yes. Marklin trucks are used. They are not easy to get. A friend of mine designed more proper trucks - this is type XTa1.
    The problem is that they running characteristic is not good enough - there is too much friction and 3-4 cars is a maximum for a locomotive - not acceptable. I still have some other cars to be done and definitely need more Marklin trucks...

    In a meantime I returned to EN57 commuter train project. I got middle car printed:

    I’ve been looking at those pictures and that photo etched one you said came from Italy really stands out! Superb details.

    Thank you Robert,
    I am happy to increase my fleet. I got sheet of decals so it is time for modelling cars !
    Next one is a flat car from 50ties:

    IMG_5409.jpg

    I made some more longer flat cars so I can start to form my military train (70ties - 80ties period). This is equipment used by Polish Marine Division (Blue Berets). Officially this was "Marine Defense Army" but they were trained for sea landing in Denmark. At this moment I have flat cars for less heavy equipment. @JMC Scale Models should recognize some of the stuff. Still a lot to be done...

    Next project is more complicated. I decided to have another version of Abteilwagen. Marklin do not produce this one:

    By 50 51 23-21 774-5, Tczew 10.08.1973, fot.T.Suchorolski a.jpg

    I had a roof from 4-axle car which was partally used for another project (boogies). The top of the roof of "Abteilwagen" was removed and the original roof have been shortened:

    Roof was glued to the car body:

    I had to use putty on the sides:

    Some lines on the roof were sanded:

    I showed some flat cars with military equipment. In military train there must be a place for toops as well. There is a "Banana car" in Marklin range that can be used forr this purpose.I decided to do some more modifications for this project.

    I cut the doors and open vents:

    The doors were glued in "open position"

    Together with Banana car...
