Answer: Unclogging his nozzle perhaps?

Seriously though - subtle curves such as yours give an air of reality to a layout, and I loved the "wheelie" - never occured to me that it was possible with a scooter!

Edit: I assumed the picture with caption "What is he doing in the bushes" would come up but it hasn't - what have I done wrong?

Thats a shame, im always impressed by the quality of these models and indeed your layout. Can you post a couple of pics of your locos and tell who makes them please. I used to live in Soest and have always wanted to model a german railway.
