Model Trains

My Trains

Some friends thought that it was about time I started taking an interest in public transport. Therefore, for my 70th birthday (in February 2012) I was given a small round model railroad, a steam locomotive, a couple of train carriages and a transformer. I quite like the idea of collective transport – as long as I can keep it at this level and still live in the country. So far, my model railroad consists of a 14.5-meter outside lane and 65 meters of railroad tracks. It is possible to drive 14 locomotives at a time, 13 of these with carriages. All trains are Märklin H0. (1:87) – the old analogue system, alternating current with metal tracks. Most trains are from the period 1950–60.
