The Latest News:


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

to be photographed: the Rivarossi HR 2044 and thee new E 44 504 Altbau from Liliput.






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 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). You'll find them in the Picture Book of Steamers , Glaskasten and Altbau Eloks




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 ~ I purchased my Insider 2010 ~ Baureihe 03 1001 DB (Märklin 37915)




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.

Incidentally I discovered a new kind of background with my photography! "Black in the box!"




13.11.2010 ~ I received new pictures from Rudolf Appel like the Langenschwalbacher-set from Liliput (811)



09.10.2010 ~ New pictures made at my dealers, like 01 118, DRG Kittel,  NS 5906, and 98 318.




Besides that the new three Era 1 Coal Hopper sets from Fleischmann were released (521201, 521202 and 521204)






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...




9.9.2010 ~ I started to make trees again, inspired by this magnificent birch tree I saw last weekend in the forest!
