Hello everybody

One of my last trips (before the lockdown) led me to the small river port of Basel here in Switzerland. There I met this interesting model situation:



Now I am slowly and steadily recreating this situation.

Here are a few pictures of the state of the work today.

Great job on that.  Is the boxcar scratch built?

What scale is this?

Without the figure in the first photo I would have thought for a minute I was looking at a 1:1 scene with real weeds. Adequate. -- Russ

Hi everybody

Jerry: it is 1:32 scale. Sorry..I d'ont know the matching scale in the US.... The boxcar is a standard Märklin Boxcar I bought secondhand and then weathered. Not finished yet as one can see from the shiny wheels...

Russ: Thanks a lot! I am quite happy that I could fox you... Wink

Hi Thomas

For me Basel is just around the corner! I love such regional subjects very much and the scene is very realistic indeed! At my next visit in Basel I sure will take a look on site…

Cheers Peter

For the record, in the U.S. we call 1:32 scale simply "1:32". It is a wonderful size for many models, especially industrial narrow gauge indoors and all standard gauge trains outdoors. -- Russ

Hello

Peter: the world is too small...another swiss guy in the forum  Smiley  But the quality of your work is really out of my reach..
Unfortunately the transfer table is not longer there. It was dismantled. But there should be still another one next to the same spot. Not the same model but interesting, too.

Barney: Yes this is a transfer table. The interesting fact is, that this table is above the normal rails. Usally those transfer tables are on the same level and need a indentation

Russ: Thanks for your informations
