Adding a concrete-ish colour before ballasting

The colour is No. 710 Neutral Grey from the Amsterdam Acrylic Standard Series from Royal Talens (way too good for this purpose)

Roco Universal Couplings installed

I equipped all rolling stock with Roco's "Universal" couplers (No. 40395). These couplings are ideal as they are easily uncoupled which is obviously important on a switching layout.

Artitec SSy 45 Demka Hoogovens joins the fleet

I finally got me a short, 4-axle car, the SSy 45 with NS No. 92416 "Demka Hoogovens" from Artitec (No. 20.281.07). With a length of 12,4cm the model is perfect for my small switching layout.

Not a man's cave...

...but at least a man's corner.
Yesterday I mounted the Valkenveld layout on new shelves. Now all tools, cars, kits etc. are easily accessible with the layout at good height and fully operational.
