Rhine River shipping

A friend is railroad modeling in HO the section of the East Rhine Railway from Rudesheim up to St. Goarshausen. If anyone can direct me to cardstock models of buildings, landmarks, river boats, and other useful model details for that area, I would appreciate the assistance.

Hi John,


The first thing that comes to mind is the castle near Kaub. It is called "Burg Pfalzgrafenstein". It is published by the Schreiber Verlag. The scale is 1:160.
Some Picture of the real castle you will find there http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falkenau_%28Insel%29

Schreiber also published a typical ship, called Binnenschiff.


Regards

Das einzigste was bei der Bahn planmässig funktioniert ist die Fahrpreiserhöhung.

Rhine Models

Well, there was a teacher in Bacharach, the now retired headmaster Mr Rolf Jung, who designed a lot of black and white cardmodels for educational purposes, mostly architecture in 1/100 scale, but also some in 1/200 etc.
He had a pretty long list of models from this area to offer, but I'm afraid he's no longer in business.
His adress is/was:

Rolf Jung
Blücherstr. 237
D-55422 Bacharach-Steeg

A list of his models can be seen at the homepage of AGK, the Research Workgroup for the History of Cardmodeling, - URL http://www.kartonmodellbau.org
Go to Verlage Deutschland, then to Rolf Jung.

Kind regards,
Papercaptain

RE: Rhine River shipping

Dear John,

MB-Modelle of Michel Bauer (can be ordered through the website of Coastal Forces (BRD) offers a very nice and detailed model of a Main-chain tug (CBCS No. V) at scale 1: 250, I cannot imagine a more a typical Rhine ship as that one, but it needs to be enlarged for railway scale HO.
Two other European inland water cargo ships ("Binnenschiffs") that could (can) frequently be found on the River Rhine are the spits "Ebenhaezer" and the lux(e) motor "Damsterdiep", both designed by and available through World of Paperships (NL). These are somewhat more traditional type of inland water cargo ships. Both are at scale 1: 100, well-detailed and therefore suitable for a HO railway diorama.
Also JSC (Poland) has published a number of years ago a canal ship at scale 1: 100. This is a more modern type of canal ship which is relative easy to build in several versions and also this type of ship can be found on the River Rhine. Scaldis (NL) has published the Suzanna at scale 1: 250, this a modern, coastal (container) trader which however is also suitable to navigate on the River Rhine. However, I presume (due to its tonnage) not much further then Mainz (?) Maybe our German friends know more about this? I think this model will be quite large at a HO railway diorama.
Succes, Jeroen, Netherlands
