Anyone saw the http://webcam.schmalspurbahn.ch/filisur ... 0074217409 picture ?

Obviously a G4/5 steam (no 108 ?) is brought to the Landquart shops.
Details ?

Hi Manfred,

How about getting the engine ready to be transported to the N?rnberg Toy Fair?

Why??

To be on hand for the unveiling of the corresponding LGB model!?!

Of course I'm just guessing, or putting two and two together.

:wink: :roll: :lol: :lol:

Lots of snow flying today at Filisur, from the walk behind snowblowers, from the small track plow, and from the locomotives passing through. I really like when the snow is flying like at 11:21- it gives more of a sense of action.

Third picture of today is amazing. I never thought that this height of snow would be "just" plowed by a standard locomotive. Seems pretty high to me.

Check out the old green coaches today at 14:25.

Where would these be going?

My guess is the coaches are ferried to Landquart for tomorrow's steam special.

About that flying snow: the 700s are always good for a show because their snowplows have "squarer" lower corners than the Ge 4/4 II and III and clear a centimeter or two lower than these.

Fresh fluffy snow is very seldom a problem. I remember plowing through 60 cm of fresh snow with hardly more tractive effort than normal. As soon as the snow gets wet it's another story, also when riding up on compressed snow lessens your adhesive weight on the front drivers.

Hello all,

Have a look at the webcam--the G4/5 and cars sending up steam at 07:40.

Hey Keith,

I could almost make up this train on my layout, but I need a few things first...I've got plenty of snow outside here in NJ, I've got the G 4/5 from KISS - I just need those new wagons from BRAWA and the Ge 6/6 II from KISS!!! :wink: :lol: :grin: :shock: :roll: :cool: I also need to win the lottery. :!:

Regards,
Dean
