Ok, so - I've almost bought this several times, but each time I sit down to buy it - I get this "research" bug, go off and dig through my FO books, then try to search online on the DFB... and can never find a car that matches this one. (number or style) :-?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Baumann-07-401 ... Sw~4hbwZxX

So, I put it to you, good people of the forum, is this just a fanciful dream - or is there a prototype for this car at the DFB? :-??

TIA!
Josh

I can’t find one matching the number on their stocklist.

But on another note just pop Furka Bergstrecke into the search on railpictures and there are some gorgeous photos! :)

Thanks Paul!

Yeah - I've tried the car number and the series "X" - I can find similar, but nothing that short with sides that tall... my gut tells me that it's a generic gon that Baumann lettered to a fictional DFB car. (Not that I can believe there is such a demand for DFB that those buying them would want incorrect cars, just to get something DFB lettered? Surely those that model the line, model it accurately? This isn't the "Rio Grande" after all!? :)) )

Very odd... thanks for the help! :D

Yeah sure. Complete with the very steep rack sections etc. etc.
As likely as someone modeling the steep sections past Morteratsch on the Bernina line. Or even better between Alp Grüm and Cavaglia.
Mind you, I've seen some layout situations where it would be possible, but it hasn't happened.

^funny you should mention that. I've just bought a collection including 6 Bernina railcars.
I've been thinking of something along the lines of the Stablini area. Mike Poleglaze's Via Mala and San Giacomo were 2 'rocky' layouts with decent slopes.

That would be crazy! :D But then again, the Bemo railcars handle prototypical Bernina consists without hesitation on my Grüm to Stablini work in progress. 12 metres of track, 80cm height difference, about 6,5% average incline.

Yes, no problem doing that inside in the smaller scales, but ..... in the garden at 1:22.5 scale and with rack track at the appropriate grades .... I have yet to see that done.
On our travels through the neighbourhood I quite often go "Wow, look at that. Now that would be a garden for a mountain railway."
SWMBO just shakes her head. :ymblushing: :ymblushing:

they just don't understand.
I've seen the ideal house for us to buy. I have no idea what it's like, but from the railway I get a great view of the brick built double garage size man-cave in the back garden.

My situation is different. ;) After the move from Ontario I told SWMBO "This is it, no more moving for me!!!" so I'm pretty well stuck with this.
:D :D
