Kit!!!

This update and blog post grew from a small update showing military vehicles being carried around the German network to a full blown uploading frenzy.  All of it took longer than expected after one of the cats decided to jump from a cat tree 7 foot up onto the laptop screen, shattering it.  As with any of my images, none are stored on in the computers themselves but on portable drives, with backups and backup of backups available.  If someone offered 6Tb+ of free storage in “the cloud” that accepted RAW files I would use that as well.  Suffice to say, what was meant to be a short gap between blog posts has turned into a long gap for which I apologise.

Another update that happened were timber carriers, my interest in getting these uploaded was due to SudExpress releasing their version of the Laaps 565 wagon in HO 1/87.  At the same time Lilliput have released their version of the exact same timber carrier.  Nothing for ages then two at the same time.  I did ask on the Lilliput stand at the Nuremburg 2017 Toy Fair if they were using the same tooling.  Turns out they are not, according to the Lilliput representative they had planned to release the carriers a few years back but delayed when SudExpress announced their intention to release the wagons.  When SudExpress did not release the wagons then Lilliput went ahead with their release.  So with that news I promptly added the Lilliput wagons to my ever growing planned purchase list.

Within the same number range of the above wagons is a different design.  The above wagon has a truss style under frame and single stanchions whilst the wagon below has a solid under frame and double stanchions and lower end supports.

The last entry for this update is one which passed through work the other Sunday, I presume due to engineering works on the Midland mainline.  This saved me having to go chasing after these wagons somewhere else in the country.

Ohh, and in case you are wondering why “Kit!!” as a title?  It was the shout used by the observers in BRIXMIS when they were line-siding in East Germany when they observed a train loaded with military equipment for which they duly took photographs and numbers of everything that passed them.  One of those things I have an interest in…
