After finishing blast furnace 5 it was time for something a bit different. As I already have more engines than I can use on the layout, well, why not make 3 more? So, here we go. Fauvet Girel Espérance-Longdoz had 4 locomotives made by the french company Fauvet-Girel, 72 ton diesel electric engines that lookContinue reading “New fleet additions”

it’s all painted!
This time, a little milestone! But first things first: wrapping up work on the rolling stock workshop for now.
