As a new member to this forum I will write a short introduction.
The name is Lucien, 44 years old, whole hearted narrow gauge modeler in 0e (On30 / O-16.5) and H0e / 009. Also a small diversion in O9 is on it's way.
So far I have only been collecting and building trains, started layout construction many times. I never really finished a layout, except for a small 009 layout called Yurze, after a design of the late Carl Arendt, also displayed on his site.

Looking forward to reading a lot of information here, maybe even contribute from time to time if I think I have something worth sharing.

Regards,

Lucien Eijdems

As requested, here are some pictures from my Photobucket account:

The 009 / H0e layout Yurze:
Size is 40 x 90 cms and made like the plan Carl Arendt has on his website.
Points are al manually controlled, trackwork all Peco 009. Buildings are all scratchbuilt.
This layout was built with a friend who built the borads, tracks, electrics and buildings. All I did was finish the layout with grass, trees, painting and weathering the buildings and add some detail. It is not all finished, still lots of small things to do.

As for scratchbuilding rolling stochk in O scale, I have learned form a friend who has also built a few items I would like to own, then gradually letting me go and start building things of my own.

This is the first locomotive I have tried, a french 030T Decauville locomotive on a Roco BR 80 chassis. All made out of Evergreen sheet, strip and tube.
It is still not finished yet, due to a lack of time and patience to finish the job. Hope to get there this year, then it will be 2 years time for this one!






The second ome is a german HF50B diesle locomotive, as built in WW2, and found in the industry after that period.
Many of them have been altered, most of them had theirt cab raised, but I wanted one like the original.
Built on a Roco chassis of a little dutch switcher ("Sik") wich has the right wheelbase and nearly the right wheel diameter. Again using Evergreen sheet and strips.
As you can see, it is quite a small locomotive, compared to other NG locomotives (last picture with Magic Train goods wagon).
