we plan to add more American (typical in the USA) objects. Commercial/industrial/residential/railroad-related buildings, engines, carriages, wagons and misc. objects.
We have received already very good pictures and ideas from Chris (thank you again!), but if you have pictures or links you could recommend us we would be happy to see them, just to gather as much material as possible.
Thank you for all suggestions in advance.

I waiting for it,and will see that.
An Amtrak thru Frankfurt or Moscow will be fine, or a SZD-train thru New York 😉
Good News for all the members like american stocks,me tooAugust 26, 2006 at 10:58 pm #485AnonymousInactive
What a thought, an overdue Amtrak pulling into Frankfurt. I’m afraid our German friends would find that most unacceptable. 😳

i wanted not to joke to much,but i will try to build a american Village with all tracks and roads and all objects we will get. You have to know,in the time i worked in area around frankfurt,many american villages were here and look like as in US. I spoke with many american peoples there. They also wanted to see a
and not a real train. Chris,i think these objects will be nice for new layouts. model-amtrak in frankfurt in tracewitdh I or II
🙄and thanx for your suggestions.August 27, 2006 at 10:30 am #487AnonymousInactive Peter,
Das sollte ein Witz sein! I was only making (a bad) joke.

Hi chris,probally you taked it as abad joke,but the other american can take it not so as you. go foreward to see the objects. You can help me if i can start a new layout about american landscape,because you´re living in us,it´s many different to eu-landscape.August 27, 2006 at 1:34 pm #489AnonymousInactive Hi Brainbom,
It’s nice to hear that you plan to add American objects. I’m a fan of American railroads, too, especially of the Santa Fe and own hundreds of ATSF models in N-scale. So I hope we will see a lot of Santa Fe rolling stock
But please don’t forget European rolling stock – as you can guess I would like to see a lot of Swiss rolling stock
😉What about a nice Krokodil?
And I still hope that you plan for the future that the user can build his own objects and share them with other users as I have written in the wish list.

If i understand Willi_leopold right then dont forget the european rolling stock please.
😉Hi Willy woher kennst Du Das ? Krokodil

This post above my´s probaly has to set a new topic,but it´s a good question to brainbomb.
😉August 27, 2006 at 8:35 pm #491AnonymousInactive Hi Peter,
I’d be happy to help you. We have quite a varied terrain so you would have great latitude in adding terrain features. You may want to model a couple in one layout passing between them through tunneling, etc.
Urban areas can vary widely as well depending on the region of the country.

if this means more of the kinds of houses in i.h. becoming available in rtr that would be great. it is true there are some deficiences of american freight stock. specificly pig/container flats of 8 wheel/ double boggie style. those and centerflow grain loading and cement covered hopper cars, and covered hoppers in general. also perhapse not so much but mechanical refrigerator cars also.
as for amtrak, slaping amtrack logos on those atsf silversiders would is sufficient for ‘heritage fleet’ although the now conventional double deckers on amtrak’s long distance trains are i suppose needed by those who want them. and one or more of the uniquely amtrak locos.
but i live in america and i like better what i see of japanese m.u. trains, at least as far as passinger service goes.
what i’d really like to see, beyond the japanese kidoshas and denshas, what i’ve been curious about the lack of, are more modern sorts of european freight/goods stock. specificly the ‘american like’ 8 wheel cars, again open and covered hoppers, and those lovely sliding wall box and convertable roof cars, and again 8-wheel ‘pigflats’ (i.e. tofc/cofc cars)
a curved highlevel platform to match the curves.
i’ve been using the wearhous and hiding it inside the stations for an approach to them from the street side so i can elevate them to platform level to match that one platform that has a floor that can be elevated to coach floor level.
(and using the shape for the dumpster bin retextured with brich as supports for the platform)
of course LOW FLOOR passinger stock would eliminate the need for this.
modern low floor m.u. stock. something we don’t have much of in america other then we’re starting to get some trolleys (‘light rail’) built that way.
back to arcitecture; SMALLER personal houses without garages then those currently available in rtr are sorely missed at present. most american houses, at least where i’ve lived, tend to be SINGLE story. or at most ‘split level’

. If who wants to build a layout Thru an american landscape ,who´ll needs american objects (houses,industrieobs,plants and others) ❗
Happy railroading for all fans here.September 18, 2006 at 11:40 am #494AnonymousInactiveSeptember 19, 2006 at 8:03 am #495AnonymousInactive
I´d seen this photos on your posted link,i hope the brainbombers still working on them. If want to begin my project then i´ll need all stock as rolling as standing stock from northern america. Hi Brinbom the american villagers in Frankfurt/Main maybe want to see it on RTR to planning their layout,before they build a real board.
