30.12.2010 ~ At this one but last day of the year, my dear uncle Gisbert paid me a visit, and brought two new items with him
Agenda of 2010
23.12.2010 ~ Yesterday I was able to have multiple models in sight of my camera. Last week I met a nice guy at my dealers
who saw me shooting. He and invited me at his homestead to show me his private collection . I'm much obliged to him for giving me this great opportunity in shooting models that were still failing in my List. Some of them pretty rare (late 70's).
15.12.2010 ~ I happened to be at my dealers today... did some new shooting, with over twenty Piccolo steamers!
A 'missing' item like this "Flachwagen Rm" is also added to my Era 1 List.
Besides I'm shooting all models with a black background for proof now. In my opinion it gives more depth.
12.12.2010 ~ Rudolf Appel treated me again on some of his fine pictures, f.i. this Badenian VI c Nr. 922.
Just like Alberto Pedrini, Rudolf has also adapted the LEO-principle (a kind of modus osterthuniensis)
in shooting his models conform the way most models are presented in the Models List.
8.12.2010 ~ Tonight Sander van Wijk was my guest at the Cochemer Bahn.
He brought his grey S 2/6 (Brawa 0655) with him which evidently had to run on Cochemer tracks.
4.12.2010 ~ Alberto Pedrini kindly sent me some pictures, and wrote: "I shot them in your site style (I hope)."
I think he did a great job. You can judge for yourself.

27.11.2010 ~ New pictures made at my dealers, like:
Wrt. C 2032 with coaches; Brawa S 2/6 in grey and in purple; and Brawa Fc 624 Hegau.

02.10.2010 ~ Märklin announces for fall 2010 4 'old ladies'... some weathered models.
Some state, in a somewhat dark mood, that there are too many leftovers in Györ...
The whole set costs about 1890 euro's...
