Because I want to use the street surface of the platform as good as possible, I decided to put the waiting shelter sideways to the platform. However, the foundation of the waiting shelter is 13 mm lower than the platform. That's why I made an extra foundation from plastic sheet. On top of this is the shelter, and one can walk on street level to the platform. In addition, the street surface of the platform is used optimally.

An excellent idea and neatly done.

The new station, complete with all accessories. And when the travellers arriving, it makes the scene complete. It breathes the atmosphere of a small local station.

A contract has been signed with "Harry und Henriëtta Gleisbau GmbH" for the construction of the new railway line.

The station is perfect, Marco.

I have one of the destination signs but can't get the arms to stay out.  I suspect something is broken or missing.

Is the Matra crane a new buy?  It looks very smart.  Nice to see, too, male and female klickies in the railway construction business.  A PA who worked for me for 18 months or so on a temporary contract went to work for a construction firm and was lat heard of working on the construction of the Gold Coast line in Australia.

Where do the workers in the striped tops come from, please?

The Matra crane was bought second hand, cleaned and provided with a new LGB wagon frame.
The Playmobil figures come from Berlin. During renewal of the subway in Berlin they were given as a gift to the passengers. You can find them on the German eBay site (search for "Playmobil BVG").

Thanks for that.  I'll have a look.

Those are great pics!

If they offered klickys here when the subway is messed up, I could probably make a living selling them (the repeats, anyways)  >:(

"Harry & Henrietta Gleisbau GmbH" are busy with their first assignment, which is to restore the old railway bridge. With the assistance of a driver, locomotive and railwaycrane of the "Ferrovie dello Balconia", a repaired bridge section is installed. "Harry & Henrietta Gleisbau GmbH" have taken care of the new abutments of the bridge. These are not yet equipped with turrets and signs on which the shipping can see where the channel is. First, the middle span must be put in order.



Total overview of the construction site.



The hoisting of a bridge section is still an exact task.



Everyone is keeping an eye on things.
