Wonderful! Great use of the Santa's bakery in the off season. Working for a chocolater company I know this very well. Christmas then Valentine's Day then Easter boom boom boom.

So, because of the Brexit there was no progress, but slowly the work is starting to come back. To start with, I got a batch of Playmobil RC rails, of which I don't know exactly what I will do with them yet. There was once a connection rail made for normal LGB rails, but this piece of track is hardly to be found anymore. Though, these light RC rails are ideal to take with you for a temporary track.

Meanwhile Henk and Ben are inspecting the rubbish behind the portacabin. There are a lot of spare parts there, but it should be possible to build a complete wagon out of them. In any case, there is still a floor for a flat car, but another superstructure would be much more fun. One missing piece is already on its way from Germany to the handymen in the Netherlands, as far as the superstructure is concerned it depends on my successes on eBay. But let's see what this will yield.

So, the gentlemen from the job company HENK put the undercarriage together quickly. Several undercarriages have already been overhauled and in the meantime the handymen have gained the necessary experience with them. Now there is a work meeting: what will the wagon look like?
— "In any case," says Henk, "we now have a container carrier and with a floor also a flat car." —
— "But what would you like to have?" - asks Ben.
— "A CONLINES car with two yellow boxes." —
Not so strange, this wish of Henk. This car is very popular with the Ferrovie dello Balconia. It can be used to transport anything: sugar bags, Nespresso cups, strawberries, tea bags and noodles. Depending on the season, there is always a cargo for this car and they are always one short.

Ben laughs: "Now you get the big packages that came in the other day. I've known your wish for a long time, and I've already searched eBay for the necessary parts." And so it is easy for the handymen of job company HENK to use the incoming parts to build the container wagon. "We will have a lot of fun from this car," laughs Henk, who is clearly in his element.
