Following this topic, after less than 20 hours, the twins arrived in safe this afternoon.
Unfortunately I didn't make pics from the unloading process, the driver was extremely tired and he had another 400 km etap for today, so we did it in no time.
He told me about the hassle with loading the truck at the Netherlands in the rain, so all my respect for Erik for this great effort.! Space Ace Space Ace Space Ace
Now the anteroom is also fully loaded with cabs Shocked

Let's see what we have here

Removing the keys, they were taped to the  bezel

While unpacking cab no.2, I was touched by Erik's message oppps

I was expecting Erik jumping out from the second box, but it was just another S.W. Cheesy

Let's take a look inside

I found a detached original backdoor instruction sheet

Can't remember if it's on this one or the other one that we all signed on the bezel with our car keys.  Grin
Really happy for you Béla, that's a super nice acquisition, a graal come true!

Congrats Béla, that driver doesn't exactly keep to European rest time rules.....and I'm always worried to be in-between these guys when going to work and back ...... Undecided

Anyway they made it to you safely ! I know you've been dreaming about SW for some time so it must be exiting to finally have it (them) !

The one with the open back has a WG6100, the other one too ? Or does that one have an Amplifone ?

So are you now the only SW owner in Hungary ? Wink

After a bit of cleaning

And the first game for my testpilot of course Cheesy

After a quick test, both cabs has some trigger switch issues (5 from the 8 are working) and one has a small monitor issue that Archer already stated, more about it  tomorrow.
Once more, huge thanks to Erik & Pieter & Olly and all of you who let this happen. Space Ace Space Ace Space Ace

Yeah poor guy had a hell of a trip and as 2 customers cancelled transporting some goods from Hungary to Brussels, he earned almost nothing on this. Undecided
About the monitors, both cabs have the WG6100, I will have a lot of questions about these, you can't escape! Grin
As far as I know, I'm the only SW owner in Hungary, it was very uncommon here  back in the 80's, I saw only one at the local amusement park about 25 years ago.
