So, it was quiet for a while with news. I had really hoped to be able to play with the train at the new location this year, but as it now looks like it will not work anymore. On the one hand we have been driving too short at work with one driver lately, so I also have to take over some of his duty, on the other hand there has been a small fire on the campsite with all its consequences. Fortunately our caravan has not been damaged, but the site has been closed for a short time due to investigation by the police and insurance companies.

I haven't been sitting completely still either. The enormous amount of wood leftovers I have invite me to make all kinds of things. This time I put together a vegetable garden house. You used to see it everywhere along the railway in the craziest shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, this piece of folklore along the railway lines in the Netherlands has also disappeared. It gave many a railway bed a colorful appearance!







For the rest I am busy with smaller jobs, so almost all wagons of the Ferrovie dello Balconia are provided with the logo of my own railway company. On Marktplaats (= Dutch version of eBay) I bought another LGB wagon for only 17,50 Euro. Remarkable is that the wagon has no inscriptions at all. Error of LGB? But that leaves me free to make my own inscriptions.
My nephew gave me two more switches. I still find a good destination for that. I also have plans to provide Henk and Ben's portacabin with new billboards on the facade instead of on the roof. The portacabin is then easier to transport. From the inventory of the spare parts a flat wagon could be built, on which a container or a car could be transported. In short: for the time being there is still plenty of work to be done!

Excellent recycling of the left-overs, Marco.

Gradually the logo of my railway company appears on every wagon. This introduction of my house style gives me a proud feeling.



After the steam locomotive the yellow diesel locomotive is the second locomotive with the logo of the "Ferrovie dello Balconia".



I bought this white wagon for only 17,50 Euro. Remarkable is that this wagon has no inscriptions at all.



Outside, the garden shed comes into its own.



I have shortened the well-known garden lights on solar energy. They are a bit better at scale. Of course they are not exact scale models, but they are a bit more reliable. The foot is made of a ballast weight of a Playmobil wagon. This way it stays better on the balcony even when it storms.

That's a neat piece of work with the solar light.

I have one of the LGB Toy Train wagons with no logos etc.
