That's so nice!  :love:

I wasn't sure on how it would work from the first photo.. :-[

Neither was I, but all's well that ends well.

Very nice, it has a real Feldbahn feel to it. (Feldbahn is the German term for industrial or private use railways, usually narrow gauge and smaller equipment)

Look, that's just a little bit better, and it's safer than hanging on the wagons. It is not a luxury, but you are dry and there is a table available. In order to make the wagon recognizable, the number zero has been assigned.

In the meantime I have given my cousin two Playmobil figures as a present, who are now permanent residents of the Eastern Balcony Railway. As the name suggests, it seems that we have in the family the strange habit of starting a model railway on the balcony.
Anyway, one of the klicky's works as a volunteer on the Eastern Balcony Railway and is a traveler-friendly type. Today he travelled all the way to Schramberg in the Black Forest to visit the “2. Echtdampf Loktreffen” (live-steam meeting). At a small station he waits for the next train. On a journey you will always meet interesting people, and he would swear that he has seen the man with a black bowler hat and walking stick before. He would like to speak to him, but the man looks rather grumpy. Well, first consult the timetable, to take the next train to new adventures.

That's a very nice figure who will fit in very well into any railway setting;  your cousin must be very pleased with it.

As Klicky you like to stay informed about the latest news: you like to read the “Railhobby”, “Eisenbahn Kurier”, “Model Rail” or maybe even “La Vie du Rail” or the "Playmobil magazine". For that you can go to a kiosk. Also the place to get a cup of coffee, tea or soft drink, supplemented with a filled cake or Smarties. In any case, you can always go to a kiosk for small things like that.
Until recently, the "Ferrovie dello Balconia" did not have one, which is why the construction workers of "klusbedrijf HENK" are working hard to set up such a kiosk. Henk watches Ben's leadership of the construction workers from a distance. That is all well and good.
Meanwhile Henk sits in the portacabin behind the computer to place a job advertisement in the local newspaper. The kiosk needs a fun and attractive saleswoman with commercial talent. But it's not yet that far, first the kiosk has to be finished.



Henk watches all the men busy with the construction of the new kiosk.



In any case Ben and his men make some beautiful out of it!

Today, interviews were held with the new employee for the kiosk. And as it looks now, we have a nice saleswoman with us. Extra motivation to finish building the kiosk.

A visit to the bank was also made to arrange payments for the new bridge and tunnel, and to discuss new investment plans. Banker Scrooge ensures that everything is in order and arranged. Since Christmas some years ago, he has become a much kinder and cheerful man.

Meanwhile, at the campsite we are not sitting still. The camping owner has levelled the ground, and there is a large bucket of grass seed scattered. In about 3 days the first grasspieces should appear. Gradually it doesn't look like a wilderness anymore, and the Ferrovie dello Balconia has a good foundation to lay the first rails (Visitors are already asked if the train returns).
