Winter comes soon. It is time to get some snowplows ready.

That is a lot of snowploughs JP. But summer is actually almost here in southern lands. With 41°c yesterday and winds gusting up to 110km/h it was not a nice day. More likely to need a plough for dust rather than snow...

ConducTTor, where you asking about narrow gauge locos to match those Ammendorf wagons?
I made a blog entry on the locos I have made over on MRH here: https://model-railroad-hobbyist.com/node/37640
A TU7 and TU2 diesel.

I also linked to that blog about a month ago in the Prototypes / Models section. The blog has info on these two locos and a bit about how I made them.
As for other suitable early post war locos... there is a Russian Wikipedia page which lists all the Russian narrow gauge locos, steam, diesel and electric: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A3%D0 ... 0%B7%D1%8B.
Just following WW2 and a group of similar 0-8-0 steam locos were made in other countries for Russia. They would certainly suit the early period of these wagons.

Getting started with my first experience with a paper kit: a Hungarian "First Class Station for Local Lines" from Papírbakter (http://www.papirbakter.hu/ - they make a fair assortment of Hungarian stations and other trackside buildings, railway signs, road signs, licence plates...). I picked this up as part of my 'impulse buy' in Hungary in which I dropped €600 on TT stuff...

What's the prototype for those?
The prototype is a Danish snowplow. 10 of them were built in 1975-1976 by Scandia in Randers for DSB. The plow blades were replaced in 1979.
DSB transferred all the snowplows to the Danish state railroad authority Banestyrelsen in 2000's.
Eight of them belong to the state railroad infrastructure company Bane Danmark now (and 2 of them are located in Struer), two were sold to a scrapyard. A private railroad, VLTJ (Vemb Lemvig Thyborøn Jernbane), bought those two from the scrapyard and keeps them in Lemvig.
The snowplows are used in case of "extreme snow storm" and can clear up to 3 meters of snow. Only old NoHAB/GM EMD locomotives can be used safely with the snowplows.
The models will be available in pairs and in several paint schemes.

It looks like an upcoming project will be building a new workbench, as I am running out of space for projects as they queue for preparation for the 2020 NTS.

I've been doing some weathering recently and have finished some of my 'fat' Russian TT scale rolling stock (ie not narrow gauge!).

This is a Tillig model of the Czech prototype locomotive ChME2-002 for the Russian railways. I made a few changes to better represent the original engine. Wagons are from Peresvet. More photos on my Flickr site.

Two years on and I've finally got round to fitting hazmat placards to three tank cars. It involved a fair bit of filing and fettling to get them to fit.
