during the christmas time and the first weekends in January a friend of mine held the so called Silvester Layout operating session during that time. The time period is set to 1919 just before the founding of the DRG (Deutsch Reichsbahn Gesellschaft, Impirial German Railway Society). Most of the layout is assembled with modules built to the FREMO N-RE standards. Enjoy the video.
Last friday attended the FREMO regional meeting at Hanau. The modular layout was set in the early 80s and we used timetable and freightcards to operate the layout. Here you could find my pictures.
And here is a movie I made during my visit.

The layout featuered a two track main line from fiddle yard Schattenbach through Karlsruhe Durlach, to Abzweig Hohenrein, there the two track main changed to an single line
main, from there it enters the second fiddle yard Frankental. From Frankental two branchlines emerges. One goes to the Industrial and harbour district,
Two weeks ago I attended the modelrailway days with some friends from FREMO with some of our modules.

The time period was set to the early 1980s. We've got two double track mainlines. which crossed at Karlsruhe Durlach (these is a scale model of the real railway station) On one mainline we've run for the first
time electrice locomotives. Then we've got two branchlines.
Last weekend the FREMO regional group Frankfurt attended at a regional trainshow.
Especially the children liked our modular layout because they could operate trains. Here are some pictures.

He named it Luxemburger Strasse (Luxemburg Street), because he wanted to use these name for a future module I changed the name to Wuerzburger Strasse (Wuerzburg Street). Wuerzburger Strasse is an industrial estate. At the moment there are two companies. Deli Lux Konserven (Deli Lux Canned Food) and Lohr Press which produces fibre boards.
