Getting tired of adjusting turnouts I tried something more rewarding.
I started conversion of Tillig BR56 to its polish version - Tr6.
My new locomotive might be ready for Burnaby train show ???

Looks good. Are you changing the old school motor as well?

Great idea! :thumbup:

Where do you purchase the typically Polish BIG headlights from?
Or do you keep the small German style ones?

Didn't do too much for TT up till now, but we do have winter, as far as I can see and it is a TT time finally.
First question about lights. I buy them from UMF in Poland and they come as a "conversion" kit for different models.
Two weeks ago I returned from Poland and brought with me two custom made locomotives that I ordered year and a half ago ! It was well worth waiting.
The locomotives look very handsome, a lot of attention to detail.
I am very very happy with my acquisition.
Now I have to finish my layout to try them out.

Yes I will bring my new locomotives to the next show in Vancouver. At least so far it is my plan to attend it.
I am planing also to have same modules for display.
During my visit to Poland I was invited to see a set up done by local "TT Nut" club in Szczecin.
The exhibit was hosted by The University of Szczecin during their Conference on Communication and Transportation.

This was very interesting and inspiring. It was much larger and more involving then I ever imagined.
It was also great to witness such enthusiasm among the members as well in preparing the modules as well as getting the set up built and presented.
The show certainly gave me lots of ideas for working on my modules.
A little bit of introduction to how they do it.

The last two pictures show a layout in "HO" scale in the Shopping Mall in Gdansk - Rumia.

You know who the serious guys are when you see catenary on a layout/module.
