Weekly Report No 198, CW 33

From Monday, 09.08.2004 to Sunday, 15.08.2004
Free view on a free Scandinavia? Yes, somehow like this our haedline could run now. Our guests now have a free sight over the whole room, and while I'm writing these lines, the 1:1 drawings are laid out on the benchwork. One more for this week: Reporter Harry Important visits America and attends a Shuttle-launch.
Shuttle lift-off in the American section

"10, 9, 8 ... 3, 2, 1 ... LIFTOFF, we have a liftoff!!" and Harry Important whitnessed it to present this event to our valued readers in form of a foto series.


Shuttle lift-off in the American section

Until today, the shuttle was launched every 10 minutes 4 out of 5 days(by pushing an action button on the railing).


Shuttle lift-off in the American section

Some time during the 5th day the steel wire will weaken and break and will have to be changed in the evening.


Planting a tree close to the ice rink

A new tree is planted near the skating rink in the Alps. Not that the park really needed it but the authorities of St. Wendel just don't know what to do with the tourists' money...


Building Scandinavia

Illuminating a hotel for Las Vegas

The last hotel addition of Las Vegas is finally illuminated.


Illuminating a hotel for Las Vegas

It will be set into layout during the next two weeks (we remember that the wiring team is currently busy changing the vehicles in the older parts of the layout?).


The first ferry for Scandinavia

After the freight vessel (15th week), this is the first ferry for Scandinavia.


The former stairway from the waiting room to the layout

Here, the stairway went up from the waiting room to the layout area. "Jipiieeee, no more waiting time!"...? Errr, hmmm, well, there still will be a waiting line but that's somewhere else now ;-).


The first 60 meters of track for Scandinavia

The first 60 meters of track for Scandinavia are already down.


The 'Scandinavian' room

I still fail trying to capture the size of the room in a foto. There's only one thing that can help: Drop by !! ;-)
