Scales Modeled: British OO and European HO
My HO passion

I have slowly been collecting and modelling European trains over the past several years. It started with whatever I could get my hands on and run on a little circle board to now highly detailed models on a proper - but still not the final - layout. I'd like to share some photos of my progress and my last photo of the Orient Express that I was allowed to run at the local club.

Nice looking train.
I really like the loco in the third pic.
Looks like someone is enjoying the trains as well.

Welcome to the very small Euro modelers group here. So small, that I think there are only you and I and one other member.

Nice looking trains.

I think it's amazing how you got them to stick to the ceiling.

Because the board software cannot read the meta data contained within the photo data and it doesn't know which end is up.

Nice pics and scenery. I like the "City of Birmingham" locomotive. Interesting that you mix British and German! I did the same when I had my HO German (mostly Roco and Lilliput) layout some 15 years ago. I started buying some Bachmann Branchline British stuff and have been collecting since! Very addicting, lol.

Thanks Tom. I do have mostly European, but couldn't pass the wwi ambulance train. I have a small collection of British OO, with only one being DCC - an Hornby flying Scotsman locomotive I bought new recently.

Most of my Roco is from the late 80's and early 90's. The British stuff is more recent, but no DCC for me. It is all stored at the moment and I miss running it...
