This impressive crash (again! Who wonders....) happened on a double slip turnout. The two trains, each 5 meters long, make an almost too realistic picture....

So now detailing the cemetary is completed.


A short

Well, that's how it goes... The extremely powerfull boosters made by Heller deliver up to 7.5 Amps. Since we don't have all booster yet, we installed a couple of boosters without current limiters (normal 3 Amp). The car derailed on a double slip (Ops, did it again....) and was stuck between two circuits.


A short

Due to the long wires , the boosters running at max. output don't even think of assuming a short. Result: it is becoming pretty warm... This problem, however, should solved soon. Once the missing boosters are here, all circuits can be limited to 3 Amps...


An oldtimer rallye in Hamburg
