...with modules. Before setting the details, it is necessary to know, how many persons would like to join the "Forumbahn".
With the modules in stock, we could meet more often in a year, i.e. at exhibitions or just for fun in private. Main thing is, that as much as possible is built with Lima-products.

Hello,

link to Module-Plan: http://www.eas-schwyz.ch/cms35/nord-module/38-13-modulkasten

Everybody can modify length or landscape/country. Main thing is, that modules fit and stitch at the ends. Mind the height! So do your work as a clockwork-engineer from switzerland!

Are those modules available as a kit or even ready made? So that I only have to screw the pieces together and add the landscape. Don't have the space and money for an own carpentery at home !

Hello,

at williwinsen aka Harald Brosch the modules are available. Call him to to tell your wishes (length, "Deckel" etc.): I suggest the following module-head for landscape: http://www.modulbahner.de/Nordmodul/html...ordmodul50.html
Station-modules without landscape formed heads could be deeper than 50cm, but mind the fit! A 99 cm Module-Kit costs ca. 60-70 €. Two years ago. So better call him, before you buy!

per email harald@williwinsen.de
oder per Handy 0179-2121559.

Verschiedene Bausätze bei youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7P0oh...Ul5nMgeQ/videos

Nordmodul: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSQg5CugfCs

Post your plans so that an arrangement can be made. I hope, anybody will do the turn-modules or two fiddleyards! Without it no fun!

Now for the unpleasant part of planning: fixing the building materials!

1. Track-system? Lima Nickel-silver as far as solderable, GT-track code 100 (flex), Piko A code 100? I think, it doesn´t matter as long as it is code 100 and a track without ballast.
2. Track-ends at module heads something like this? http://www.digitalzentrale.de/main.php?s...bt=2&itemgr=399

3. Cork underlay for tracks and ballast with theme-related material or same ballast for all modules?
4. Buildings and functional models mainly Lima?
5. Digital controller is Must, i think.
Added:
6. Keep it simple. No automatic train control by signals. No special cabling. Cables/Transformers for lighting a module must be fitted in the module itself. Mind that sockets are always too far away!
7. Cable connection from module to module with banana plugs.

Further suggestions?

Good morning everybody!

Eric,about that once in a year...
The past November,I must have been very close to Martin...
Visited Zugspitz,Lokwelt,Freizetpark,Konnigsee,
N___sweistain...(excuse me about dictation...)

Although Greek,my main collection is around DB and DRG and a few FS and one SNCF...not even one Greek model...
But,I will certainly join with one train,propably FS, loco and three wagons which I will send to someone from you,or maybe bring them myself...

Good morning Nick,

Keep an eye on Ryanair's offers. If destination Frankfurt-HAHN, I'll pick you up there.

There are direct flights from Thessaloniki (SKG) to Memmingen (FMM), (Ryanair calls it "Munich West" which creates confusion sometimes), on Ryanair. Additional flights from ATH to FMM might be scheduled later this year. FMM is a mere 70kms from Kaltenberg.

Hi Eric,

digital is a must for a Lima layout? I don't agree and I'm not willing to digitalize a couple of hundred trainsets (not talking about the finacial power and abilities to install decoders )

Cheers,

Martin

....just a few? OK...has to be dicussed. We could switch from digital to analogue and back from time to time. Switchable tracks in the fiddle yard are necessary.

The first plan with a suggestion for a doubletrack turning loop.



In my opinion too big for transport with normal cars, even if divided into two? A fiddle yard might be better. How long does it have to be? More than 2 m?

Alternative Fiddle Yard, two pieces of the same kind, erveryone divided into two 50x100 cm:

Hello everybody

I've already thought about the layout. This would be my suggestion.





I can take over the two loops and also the shadow station. I will continue with the planning and define
the requirements with you. As soon as we have finished I will start with the station modules if allowed.
