Well it came. Not bad. Unfortunately it derails on some of my points. A problem I have not experienced with my other units. Oh well. The best part is with a little chop to the front frame the E499.0 lid will slide right on.

As for what's on the way, a short list of kits from DK-model have been sent!
0127 - 464.008
0134 - 556.0
0078 - 555.3
0115 - M131.1
0123 - T478.3
0123B - Frame for T478.3
0080 - T444.1
0080B - Frame for T444.1
0118 - T669.0
0118B - Frame for T669.0

Instead of the 477.0 I was building, the mechanism of the BR86 will be used for the 464.0. Can't wait!

I'm willing to bet it's the wheel gauge. As in, the wheels likely are .5-1mm too far apart or too close. If it rides over - even slightly - the frog, they're too close. If it derails at the point, they're too far apart.

This is not from experience with Kuehn locos (never had this issue with them) but a lot of older wagons tend to do that.

I have a number of cardstock sides for different TT scale cars, ranging from Liberty Bonds, to Beer, to Bacon, and Goat Milk.
I have fished out a section of roof stock, and when I get a new miter box, more cars will be built.

The completion of those cars will lead directly into the design and construction of TTnut.com related cars at a later time.
