I found some pictures taken in 1969 of my second layout, in Amman, Jordan, showing the layout with Hornby DUblo 3-rail track supplemented by some Fleischmann track with a 3rd rail added. You can see a lot of Dublo stuff, and one Marklin TEE set, as well as a single 2-8-8-2 Y6B Mallet.

Amman layout (This layout was constructed using the Hornby Dublo 3-rail track available to me in the late sixties, plus some Fleischmann track with a third rail added. The layout was dismantled when I left Jordan in 1973 and everything survived and ended up in Cincinnati. The Marklin turntable has since been sold, as have all the visible Marklin engines and rolling stock).

Barnstaple (with a train of the 4054, 4055 corridor coaches, and some D12 coaches in the background. The buildings are Faller)

D8000 with low-sided wagons (I had to use level crossing rails, of which there were many, as 3-rail sources were simply non-existent in the Middle East at the time)

Station scene (The Marklin EO3 overhead electric and it's TEE coaches, all sold now)

View of suburban coaches behind 2-8-8-2 (This large engine proved to be irresistable to me, with 16 driven wheels capable of pulling couplers almost out of their sockets, now also sold)

Picture of the model train and toy museum in Nashville, Tennessee, taken early 1990s. (Imagine my surprise at discovering a small train and toy museum with the familiar products, within walking distance of the Grand Ole Opry Hotel in Nashville, during a trade show I was attending at the time)
