    Default Machine shop with steam engine

    While browsing my usual suppliers, I came across this machine shop (electrical generating station?)with steam engine that might be of interest to modelers of Eras I & II. It is by Modellbahn Union and is available through DM-Toys.

    https://www.en.dm-toys.de/produktdet..._N-i00041.html

    At the bottom of the text about it is a link to a YouTube video that I think we all can enjoy, showing the assembled model with the steam engine working. The whole thing is pricey, but if I were modeling that time period I'd certainly have one.

    By the way, DM-Toys ships world wide for 10€ for orders under 300€, and free for orders over that amount. I get no credit and have no connection with the store, but I buy a lot of stuff from them. Shipping generally takes two weeks to a month - though rarely a package stalls in US Customs for another week. And I just got notice that a package that I ordered on October 7th will be delivered tomorrow.
    Cheers!

    That is a beautiful building. That price tag, not so much.

    I agree about the price tag of this little gem, guys, especially when you consider that 1€ = $1.15. There are some interesting kits out there besides Walthers, though.

    Sounds like a quality kit, though.
