Some of us know that these models were manufactured by former Berliner TT Bahnen, so technically these are not Tillig's own work. After Tillig took over the company continued manufacturing them with some here & there improvemets to the coupling system and added new metal wheels and metal clips for better rolling purposes. I decided to play with these models and see what can I do to modify them a bit. The coaches are (were) classified as reconstructed passenger coaches with 2 &/or 3 axles and some were modified for the use of special purposes like propane carriers and the railroad crew that worked on the maintenance of the railways. Some of the alterations I've performed to these cars will apply indeed to the postal and the luggage coaches also. Enjoy!

Thank you CN-TT! I've never traveled inside those cars. I apologise for using the wrong colors. I've seen some photos posted on Bahnbilder.de. I tried my best to be close enough! My next project will be adding the grab bars on top of the benches (seats) and I will try to adapt the coaches with some inside lighting device, and for the coaches that are used as the last one in the train composition I will have to add another board adapted with LEDs for marker lights. I initially I wanted to paint the floors (vinyl?) brown color, but I gave up because is too much work as it is. After all nobody looks inside that much. They are just models. Another thing can be added on the last coach is air brake hoses. The coupler needs to be removed first in order not to interfere with the air hoses (Tillig accessory pouch with spare parts from other models) to make it look more realistic.

I make my own lights with LED strips. I simply add a rectifier and capacitor and replace 2 LEDs by 2 resistors to reduce the brightness. The LEDs point upwards and the light is reflected by a simple sheet of aluminum foil glued to the roof.

Hey! What do you know! Someone who speaks my language! I like that! and the lights idea too! Pretty ingenious! There is a company here locally that supplies Hobby Town USA with rolls of flexible copper strips with all kinds of LED colors. At the moment they don't have any with yellow one. They have a roll with warm white. Made me think. I better wait for the ones with yellow. I just placed an order yesterday. It's 5$ for a foot (I need only 3 1/2" or 4" per car/ about 7-8 LED total), If I count only the inside area where the seats are, I need only 6 LEDs.
