From 11/17 to 11/20 2016 we attended the International Modelrailroad Exhibition in Cologne, Germany.
We set up a little booth and presented a crossover on the US model railroading hobby on the four day lasting show.
Pit Karges’ “First snow on the Highline” was our largest layout and covered Rio Grandes narrow gauge railroad in HOn3. Alain Kap, MMR presented his “R.I.P. Car Service” a HO-Scale mircolayout with a footprint not lager than 70 by 30 cm. Third layout by Mike Holly, incorporated a fully operational N-Scale switching layout “Downtown Spur” on a 90 by 20cm footprint.
Beside the layouts Alain and Mike presented workshops covering techniques on how-to built/kitbash HO kits (Alain) and weathering techniques to add more realism to N-Scale rolling stock (Mike).
