Hello,

from 27th until 31st of October I and some friends attended the FREMO Meeting at Mammendorf halfway between Munich and Augsburg. There were 4 FREMO chapters with their modular layouts. In the great sports hall was the H0-RE (H0 Region Europe), and our small Great-britN modular layout. In the small gym was the AmericaN and N-RE (N scale Region Europe) modular layouts. A special thank goes to the organisation team as they spend much time and effort on planing these event, and provided all of us with enough delicous food. Here I show you some of the pictures I took at the meeting, but as I took a lot of them, I insert the link to my Flickr album at the end of these posting.

Inspired by some trials of a friend of mine, I started my own test with Dapol Easyshunt couplers and neodym magners. Because of the curved nature of my terminus station I had to do some trials for the right arrangement of the possition for the magnets, which I show you in the video. Before another friend of mine installed the Dapol uncouplers, but these wasn't reliable, as very light wagons as one of my kitbuilt Lowfits was pulled towards the magnets, and another magnet installed in the throughtrack of a station resulted a train to uncouple when it passed the station. The magnes I used have a diameter of 2mm, and fits between the sleepers of my Peco track. I also found out recently that you could couple Rollingstock with Dapol Easyshunt couplers and Rollingstock with Microtrains couplers, and or Kato magnetic couplers together.
The result could be seen here.

Hello,

during the last weeks I started with the building of my backdrops, and now about half of the backdrop is in place.

Hello,

 

it's been some time since my last update. In May I held the first operating session in the new basement. These time my friend Daniel did the filming. After the session I had a little flooding in the layout room during a thunderstorm, but I've got lucky and only a bit of the scenery was harmed, The baseboards and electrics weren't harmed.

So here is the video from the operating session. Enjoy.

Hello,

during the last two weeks I built the backdrop for the Lochdubh part of my layout. And here is the result.

Hello,

 

today I uploaded the December update on Youtube. During the last few months I hadn't done much on my layout projects. But last October I and some friends spend a weekend in Berlin to build more than 20 curved modules to the FREMO N-RE standards. After these I spend a few days in the Harz mountain region and did a trip from Gernrode to Wernigerrode on the HSB.
