Railway Modelling out of the Mainstream

deutsche Version

As a real railway professor, I naturally have also a railway at home ;-) However, my specific kind of railway modelling is quite out of the usual mainstream.

I built several small layouts (most of them rather micro layouts) and dioramas in TT scale (1:120). The operational layouts are equipped with analog controls. I do not plan to change this. Railway modelling is one of the few remaining analog nishes in my quite digitalised life.
