The season's end is approaching...

... yet again !

So it looked like a good idea to run a few trains in fair late summer weather - just before one will be nailed to the basement during "workshop weather" more sooner than later.

A freight train consisting of self-built and retrofitted cars and a curtated BEX with a Rp-w and a tanker made it onto the tracks and rode along them until early in the evening - driven by the control computer which had just been virtualized on the iMac resident in the basement. Quite an improvement since the hardware beneath the stairs needs to noise around no longer now...

Perhaps there's hope for some powder snow in winter so that the plow can make it outside as well ? That would be nice for a change after at least five years of wet (read: unplowable) snow only...

The modifications in particular:
It's amazing over and over again how just minor mods add to a much more prototypical impression.
