Thank you Hauk, I think there are only the lights of my workplace lighting. Yes with the good old light bulb, that would not have happened.

Mostly etched, however where there's some that are punched because of the way it's designed

Those 2 are the designs that go over the railway. These 2 are the ones that carry the railway over the canal.

Impressing!
Are the rivets etched or punched?

The wheels are turned LGB spoke wheels with the wheels from the action.

Nice project!

I might be wrong, but it seems that you have encountered a very common problem when turning the wheels. The surface shows sign of chatter, and If I am right, I might have some suggestions for how to avoid it on future projects.

Hauk, The November 2017 issue of Model Railroader (Yes, it's already available in some areas) has an article about taking photos acceptable for publication using an iPhone. While that is not the camera you are seeking, one advantage to camera phone is they are low enough and small enough to set onto a layout for good trackside views that bulkier camera with lens mounted higher are more difficult to set up in some tight/close situations.

I certainly consider my iPhone 8 for usable for some jobs, especially for the situations you describe.
For webpublishing the a mobile gives more than adequate quality. Even for smaller images in print it can be acceptable.

By the way, I looked into some compacts, and even if it is one of the ugliest cameras I have ever seen the Canon PowerShot G5 X might be a camera for me. It focuses down to 5 cm from the front of the lens. I think this is about as good as it gets with modern compacts.

Hello together, after I have been working mainly lately with the solution, the automation of my monastery model, it goes also with the Xrot.

It goes on the tender rolls and springs.


The brackets for the suspension are brazed. The wheels are turned LGB spoke wheels with the wheels from the action. The soldered rocker, which once again lies on the wheel bearing, already consists of 3 parts and has only 3 mm diameter.


The wheels fit with the low sprockets much better and would be spring loaded otherwise touch the tender ground.


The rollable tender on my facility.


Details of suspension.


In order to make tests it was easy to connect an LGB locomotive. All test journeys were pushed and pulled, also ran smoothly in turnouts.

Impressive and yet more evidence of your being a very accomplished modeler. -- Russ
