Crane connaisseur. Cool

Are they both LGB? If so why the different chassis?

The archbar trucks and wheels look like they are metal so I doubt whether that is LGB.

One of the crane (LGB) has been upgraded, with new chassis and some bogie in order to accept heavier load in condition than the usual one cannot have.

The use a bogie instead of axle allows it to be incorporated in some faster train.

One other distintiveness is the hook, that have an upgrade as well.

And indeed this one is a new addition in the shed.

Very Happy

Hi Brian,

I replace the very light wheels by some heavy metal ones. The original ones were very light (plastic). Make the wagon more stable.

I bought those wheels at railexpo 2011, time have passed very fast the last two years (just realized it).
Had a very busy time with work, now it's done, going to move to another branch within my company.
Probably going to be busy as well, but it will be a nice new challenge. cheers

Yes I am still working there (INFRA now, signed for it today in fact).
I will work for a subsidiary the next 3 years.

I will post some pictures in the future (you will understand why 2014 will be yellow  Wink).

Great to see you back Laurent. Very Happy 

I hope you will bring all your yellow stock in July for the weekend 12/13/14 at Chittenay.

Have you made any progress with your live diesel?

BTW. Why is INFRA yellow? It should really be red. scratch  Laughing

Hi Carl,

I will see if I could come, because I am at Lamotte for the poney competition the week before.
Depend when is the last competition. Lamotte is really not far from Chittenay.
Have to look into it as I am suppose to go in the south for few days after Lamotte.

INFRA is yellow now, don't know who decided it, but it well suit me.

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Livr%C3%A9es_SNCF

So "bouton d'or" it will be.

For the live diesel I didn't work a lot on it recently.

Need some brass to start.

Today was a very sunny and nice day, well it's a bank holliday, no train, but lot's of work in the workshop.
Time to do some cleaning, buiding a new base for a bench vice and oiling and protecting tools from rust.

No picture for the cleaning, time to move directly to the vice.



I remove the old grease and put some new one.



And now the new base,











And some more oil and oil cloth in order to fight the rust.
I bought this one in England few year ago, it's was better and cheaper than the one I could find at the time here.



The bench drill is cleaned and oiled as well, some parts are covered with oiled paper.





Forgot to take another picture, I covered as well some part with oiled cloth.

And the last one a smal anvil
A good clean and some oiled on the top/





"Voila" for today, time now to finish to clean and put away some box in the workshop.

GREAT some serious investment in "tooling".

We look forward to seeing the "output".

How are your track plans developing?

We received today some new wagons for our train line.
Those ones are the last of their kind, as Bachmann stopped the production of this model.

Nice and yellow with metal black wheels.

The Hi-rail crane is analog.

The switch are for the rear red ligth and white and the second one is for orange blinking on each corner.
For the white light, I have to look the circuitry, not working for the moment.

All the wheels could take the electricity from the rail.

It's an USATRAINS bay window caboose, with some metal parts and lights system.
It takes the electricity from the wheels.
It's 1/29 but it's not too small because, they are big in the US, so if you compare the doors it's nearly the same size as the diesel.
