My taste in trains is eclectic, and my layout has a random
mixture of models of different periods, both cheap and expensive simply tied
together by the fact that I happened to think they were cool.
On these pages I illustrate a few of my favorite wagons. A lot of my
models have been extensively modified. I often replace the decoders, the
couplings,wheels, add complete brakes, steps, handrails, signs, etc
In addition to the models with dedicated pages, some of my other projects
Sdgkmss 707 - The Maxi 54760 proved easy to rebuild into a
fairly accurate model by adding the missing railings, hooks, valves,
side bracing, and the ratchets where the container supports lock
Kalkdeckelwagen - Saalbach sells these for 1200 DM, but I built
my own using a 54758 as a basis for about $70 total in parts including
the MAXI chassis.
Kbs 443 - This is one of the original Märklin Gauge I models. Always annoyed
by it being way too short, I lengthened
it using parts from another model, added brakes, new couplings.
