last weekend, I exhibited my Hon30 forestry railroad layout in Sinsheim/Germany together with the “copied” layout build by Bernd. The new sawmill-module acts as interchange between our layouts and it was the first time, that we combined both together for an eight meters long layout.
We didn’t have any test-setup before, but everything matched together perfectly. It was the first exhibition for Bernd, so he was very excited. But hi did great, even during the official photo-shot.
The interest in our layout was very well. Many knew the layout from the internet, others saw them for the first time and got caught by a totally different concept of model railroading.
As in the last years, the layout was shown in the competition of private home layouts, sponsored and organized by the Miba-magazine. All nine layouts got voted by a jury, composed of model train experts. Despite the high quality of other layouts, the operation, joy and flexibility of our layout concept convinced the jury again. Finally we got honored with 1st place.
Motivated by our success, we’re full of new ideas for the next event.
