Re: Lionel conversions

Sometimes there is also a burr from injection molding on the gears. Some gear grease should also be used. But sparingly.

Re: Tillig 2020 New Items catalogue

You are not mistaken. There is still the item 02403 electric locomotive 194 178-0 of the Rail4U GmbH of epoch VI as a one-time edition 2020 (Einmalauflage). Now the Epoch IV DB variant of the same loco number was announced ( item 02404 ). The Workshop locomotive for the Tillig Club members is 2021 t...

But at the beginning of the 80s, she got no orange with the new paint. http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=1164897 http://ww...
