good to see such a long time povray user still going on.

BTW, there's a railway challenge going on at Tina-Chep and I thought I might
stand a chance but after seeing your impressive series from 1999 on, I fear I
still have much to learn... :p  where do you guys get such detailed blueprints?

.. mostly from the web, a list of my best sources you'll find here:
   http://www.f-lohmueller.de/links/indexRRe.htm

You will find also some good blueprints on some of these pages.
But blueprints are not all!
You need to have also many photos to find out how the details really
look like in 3D. Also technical data aubout length, wheel radii are
necessary. Many detective work!
   It's a big help in scale modelling, adding blueprints in the correct
size/scale to a raster plane like shown here:

Happy rail tracing!

Here is a site that has one or two blueprints. IIRC you have to register 
but no spam just a news letter.

I've seen it before, but the blueprints of 4-4-0 locomotives are pretty bad.
I'm really doing it by some ref pictures...

hey, I may be able to actually make it till tomorrow!

sadly, not making it. :p

I won't invent any excuses, but after vacations, these past 3 weeks my daughter
and I successively got ill, my cat got his leg broken and work has demanded the
rest of my time.  srsly

anyway, I love challenges and will keep a close eye on tina-chep from now on.  I
don't have access to the forum yet, though I registered for it (as namekian).

cheers

You should have noticed me when you did because I am not always watching 
the new registrations (mostly spam)

I am away for a week to 10 days. Register again then and I shall 
activate you.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Thomas

RL being what it is (RL indeed) I am here again.

Many things to do on TC-RTC; just answer me here when you submit again 
to the forum and I shall activate you.
