Spring approaching....

Yesterday was a good day to tidy the garden, on and around the line. Leaves, leaves and more leaves, twigs and rotting vegetation occupied the ground. Wind blown debris had settled on heavy  sodden soil and mushy lawns squelched underfoot. But this is the dawning of Spring where juvenile shoots and buds emerge, signalling the beginning of the Garden Railway season - all a board!

DR Tender Steam

After the war, many of these narrow gauge locomotives found their way onto several German narrow gauge railways.

An exceptional model equipped with two drive motors powered by eight wheels and four pick-up shoes.

This recent addition to H.L.R. arrived analogue and will be converted to DCC once it is ascertained how to open her up and fit the decoders (Engine & Tender).
