Tank cars of older style. PKP lettered and weathered:
3D printed models of Eaos-w cars:
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:
Next step in EN57 project - decals applied on the middle car:
Post office car
Post office and baggage car for local trains:
Photoetched model made in Italy. I have designed and added Polish markings:
Based on Marklin....
Two coal cars made using Freudenreich Feintechniek kits:
I’ve been looking at those pictures and that photo etched one you said came from Italy really stands out! Superb details.
I finished Schurzenwagen project with restaurant and post-office cars:
The whole set:
Very nice, The paint and decals are impeccable!
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:
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...
Some new Marklin cars repainted:
Rebuild and repainted:
Next project is more complicated. I decided to have another version of Abteilwagen. Marklin do not produce this one:
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:
Final model with original Marklin car:
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...
