Weekly Report No 129, CW 16

From Monday, 14.04.2003 to Sunday, 20.04.2003

Time for a Easter egg hunt. Naturally we keep up and let the audience search for a couple of them. The task: Find a small part out of a huge picture... Enjoy!

Well, and on a very short notice, we just learned that there will be a broadcast this evening, Tuesday - 04/22/2004. Unfortunately, the NDR didn't inform us in time and therefore once again the hint: N3, Die Reportage, at 21.45 hrs

Canyon under construction

One side of the canyon is nearly finished as far as the plaster-works go. In the upper part, a small length of track swings freely over the gorge. It will be supported by a small wooden trestle later on.

Small wooden trestle

And this will be the trestle supporting the free swinging track.

It is, like many other bridges, a scratchbuilt one of our house brand 'Gaston'./p>

Staging yards in America

We still didn't have a chance to build in the staging yards. Problems with the turnout motors held us up and thus we don't make a lot of progress here.


Bryce Canyon (the real thing)

Bryce Canyon, a picture that served us at another part of the layout. Thx @ Harry ;-)


ICE train wreck

Phew!! That could've been a lot worse! The ICE dug up the already standing train at medium speed.

Just a little bit more speed and could have picked up a lot of junk from the floor...


The 'Landungsbrücken' of Hamburg

Now for searching Easter-eggs. originally, I intended to let you search for the guy in the traditional jacket (his name is Otto Hare) but then I noticed that the AOL - arena is visible in this picture. So I had to drop that (Attention: this is an "insider"! Forum readers know more ;-)).


Church 'St. Michael' in Hamburg

The original TIF has monstrous 50.1 MB. The cut-out is somewhat smaller and heavily compressed as JPG. Nonetheless, this is definetly a picture for DSL- or cable modem owners. ISDN , or worse, modem owners should have a hang to masochism to download this 1.2 MB file ;-). Search task: How many jumpers were on the top platform of the open air bath at the time this picture was taken?
*** Warning: Extra large file !!! ***
