Thanks Andy,

There is also the Peco HOm track with the advantage of electrofrog points. The Bemo points are dead frog ones.

However, though 99% of all corrections and alternation are now done we still have no photos of the Bar compartment and therefore work has stopped :cry: till some photos become available.

PS. Have a look at the MAN next to a Bemo railcar. It is almost a different gauge :lol: .

I have approached a UK based model electronics firm and I am in the process of receiving a plan of installing all the three colour marker lights + headlights + interior lights + sound. I will then finalize the body and chassis design to take into account the position of these parts. Consequently some of the non visible parts of the chassis may be left out and the fuel tank will be split into two halves to allow access.

Despite people's extremely minimal response, I like this model so I am continuing the development.

Today I received another MAN set drawn with changes to the first test example. Unfortunately the print was not good :cry: . So back to the drawing board :geek: .

Good news: The issues with the quality of the prints of the MAN1 are now being addressed by the printers. Hopefully we will have some better examples to inspect soon. And I better sell some ;) otherwise it might be the debtors prison for me :cry: :lol: :cry:

Today came the THIRD attempt from the 3d printers. It was as disappointing as the second. For some strange reason, among other major faults, the vertical door rubbers, grille sluts, etc. are missing. The horizontal ones are present :?. Since I do not agree to the technical explanation they offered, its time to try another company. If anyone is interested in how to throw good money away :cry: , please sent me an email for advice :lol: .
