Hi,

with the meeting having come to a successful end yesterday, it's now time to show what happened to our special guests from Britain. First, apologies for not having managed to take pics of them on every single modular section of the layouts shown last weekend, but I'm in good hope some additions from other forum members around here may take place ;)

The wagons made their first trip on the Epoche 5 continental layout of a mainly Frankfurt based group dedicated to modelling current industrial traffic in N gauge. The wagons were quite a good fit all around the layout.

Following this expedition, they were put where they actually belonged and transferred to the British modular layout. This mainly consisted of forum member McRuss, mine and another fellow modeller's sections, set together into one Y-shaped and timetable operated layout. This meant the forum wagons making a rather long trip from Scotland to Penzance via a Cambrian Coast based motive power depot and its sidings several times.




































I hope you like the pics and many thanks to all who made it possible to have the wagons on show.

Wagons will be shipped back to Britain tomorrow with SteamerDave awaiting them, so the tour is hopefully not going to be delayed too much by the detour to Germany :wave:

Matthias

Well, those of us who are interested in british railways are mostly here already, I think.

I checked my photos but I didn't manage to take a single picture of the NGF containers, although I had them in one of my trains. I've posted my pictures over in the other thread http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=846.msg14952#msg14952

Great pictures, and a great layout(s)!  Is this a club layout, or your own?

Hello Tank,

the modules are owned by the individuals. Most of us are member of FREMO, but the modules are not owned by FREMO.

Hi Chris, and hi Markus,
maybe we should explain this since I guess not everyone around here entering the wagon tour thread may be familiar what this Fremo stuff is about. The modular sections the wagons are shown on all belong, as McRuss mentioned, to individual modellers and are genuinely intended not only to be run at each ones home but in meetings with other fellow modellers. For example, the Epoch 5 continental industrial sections belong to about five different members, whilst the British based sections are owned by three persons, McRuss, me, and a third fellow who is responsible for some great sections such als the small Scottish halt ("Earlish") and the steel girder bridge pictured above. However, it is to admit that the very most modules are actually in the hands of McRuss who can form an exhibition layout on his own.

If anyone interested the construction of such modular sections is described here on the forum for example:
Here: http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=846.0
and there: http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=438.45

Both Fremo modellers dedicated to continental and British railways in Germany are unified by the idea of building their layouts to certain standardized changeovers so they can be combined mostly however this is desired. And this, combined with the idea of timetable based operation, is what Fremo is all about. It's fun  :D

Well its been a real pleasure to have these wagons, they made me see another dimension in my layout. Sorry the pics are a bit late but while decorating the staircase I managed to miss a step on a ladder and fall down the stairs finishing up rather battered, bruised and very stiff, back up and about now.





Will be sending these on to Porkie as soon as he gives me his details
Regards Dave
