    Two short movies I shot at exhibitions.

    A German narrow gauge layout. It depicts the typical narrow gauge lines at peat factories, brick factories and quarries in Europe. I don't know who the builder is.

    The narrow gauge layout 'Forks Creek Yard' of a Dutch group of modellers:

    Great videos!

    The builder of the first layout is Marcel Ackle, who's long been one of my favorite modelmakers. He's got a website : Feldbahn-Modellbau

    Regards,

    Thanks for the name of the builder: I will add his name and website.

    Here a movie of the prototype, in this case the trains at a former peat factory in the northeast of our country:

    Thank you for sharing it. I wonder about the Dutch On30...I can recall a story in an old Gazette about a group of Dutch modelers whom had built a cool trio of modules of Colorado in HOn3.

    Thieu,

    Thanks for the additional links. I know several of those quite well, but there are a few I have not seen.

    At the most recent great exhibition (Rail 2009), I was lucky to operate the Forks Creek Yard. Was the first time for me running O gauge.

    The second link is of a layout in a garage. I am planning to visit this layout with some friends.

    I am most familiar with the Lost Creek layout as I have been studying it for inspiration in a small mining layout I am going to build while I await more space for my full-sized C & S layout. It is a simple plan that looks like a lot of fun to operate...AND they managed to get DCC/sound in those Porters...my hat is off to them for that :D

    It looks to me like the Shadow Creek is On30, On3, and standard gauge. Impressive.

    One of the greatest exhibition layouts was the layout of the Slim Gauge Guild. Unfortunately, they have demolished this great layout because the owner moved.
