A short update on my – very quiet – layout.
So I was at the Die Modellbahn model train fair in Munich today. A small fair, with only some of the usual suspects exhibiting.
I got my hands of on one track element I’ve been wanting to get: the wonderful Kato double crossover (I bought it as a set):
Those Kato switches are really well made, I have had litteraly no derailments in my hidden fiddle yard since I went for them. Frankly, German manufacturers should get back to the drawing board.
As usual however, this piece of Kato track will be hidden (I don’t like the ballast color and shape). The idea is to replace some derailment-prone Fleischmann switches…
To a much safer plan:
I’ll tell you how it goes. I also got my hands on another DCC Qdecoder Z2-8+ (already reviewed here) to control the Kato double crossover (and other things):
Qdecoder Z2-8+: universal accessory decoder
Arnold N Lufthansa Airport Express (added sound)
Adding a floor to the helix (1/2)
Track cleaning cars: LUX Modellbau vs. Tomix
Old Arnold ES88 railcar DCC conversion
