[WBE] 3 years Hon30-layout “Waldbahn Eusserthal”

Posted by Gerd on Monday, 20 March 2017

Hello loggers,

three years ago, I started my Hon30 adventure which became later the “Waldbahn Eusserthal”. Time for a small review, starting with some photos from the beginning.

But my review will not focus on my own layout. Instead, I’ll show you two copies of my idea/layout build by other model railroaders. Since I started with my layout, I got dozens of mails from other model railroaders, asking for details, sources and so on. Not each of them was going to build a logging railroad. Many adapted the modular plug&play system for N-scale, TT-scale and even H0n2. Most of them were just happy to have a solution for model railroading in limited space. Ans sometimes, I got response from the other projects and I like to show two of them today.

If you’ve build your own layout based on my idea, feel free to send me a mail and some photos. If you like, I can show your layout here as well.

The layout by Bernd

In march 2016, I showed my layout at an exhibition in Germany, where I first met Bernd. He was mostly working on locomotive kits, but was so fascinated by my layout and design, that he made the step forward into layout building. In just 12 month, he copied my layout incl. some additional modules. We are in close contact and maybe we’ll have a layout meet some day, bringing both together. Here are some photos of the layout, more were hosted on an own page, since it was too hard to sort them out.

The layout by Michael

When I was for a visit at another exhibition in march 2017, I spotted this layout, which has clear parallels to my design. I talked to the owner/builder and as expected, his layout way inspired by my blog as well. He told me, that there are plans to extend the layout in the future.
