Its is a good life in Spaubeke. The wellfed signalman appears to make some smalltalk with the crew of the G8. The G8 is on its testruns and can be seen here still in unfinished state. The front of the signalbox used to have a veranda, therefore there are doors on the upperfloor. The veranda was removed after becoming unsafe due to lack of maintenance. From this side we the effect of rebuilding the track, the track was raised with 2 mm, the goodshed too and thus is now standing too high compared to the level of the yard. The station yard is paved in stones, on the whole layout about 10000 of them, modelled in Das by scribing and embossing, airbrushed and partly individually painted.
