Hello Everyone, Recently I posted about my Catenary Renewal Machine and I thought it would be a nice idea to stay on the topic of overhead wiring repair and show it's workmate the Xm 2/2 Catenary Inspection and Repair Vehicle. This machine is heavily inspired by the Xm 2/2 units of the RhB http://www.railfaneu...m22_n9916_1.jpg and is also inspired by the 701 Class of the DB http://www.railfaneu...01/dbag701a.jpg . I have also added a Catenary Work Wagon that normally travels with the Xm 2/2 carrying spare parts for the catenary as well as cable drums, the idea to make this combination happened when I saw a model of a 701 Class with a work wagon in a Marklin catalogue http://www.eurorailh...All&stock=39971 I immediately thought wow that looks really nice I have to make something like this.

Very nice. The yellow probably works better than the red version in the Marklin catalogue.
If at first you don’t succeed, call it version 1.0
