It just dawned on me that when a ferry is getting emptied (like a train rolling out) it will rise as weight reduces. So are the rails that connect land to ferry vertically movable?


Yes they are, they have to be vertically movable for the high/low tide too. The crane for lifting the ramp is visible on the picture of Asa-Thor.

Here is a larger ferry, Arveprins Knud. It was a passenger ferry for cars.
You can see the grey ramp (bridge) for the 2nd car deck. The crane would lift the left side of the ramp (together with the ramp for the 1st deck) when loading was completed and let the ferry leave the terminal.

I have promised this tank car long time ago.
Joma 8000 gallons tank car is only a stand-in. The diameter of the tank is supposed to be larger (10 000 gallons).

I have got a message from Ingo saying that there might be a little chance for another run of RS-3 - if we can find enough people interested in it. The minimum is 10. I take 3 - PRR, UP and CP. Decals will be available for those. If you want decals for some other version, feel free to ask. Maybe I have some part of the artwork.

I would take 1. C&O or Rock Island if possible.

How much would the RS-3 cost? C&O and Rock Island decals work for me if possible. Also, would it be possible to get New Haven decals?

I will take 1 for sure. I will take a second one if the cost isn't too high.

I'd prefer undec for my own road. But would probably remove the paint if I get one.
