H.Peter Hess (Germany) preparing his demo layout, and arranging some TRIX DC 3-rail locos

Renate and Bernd Tauert (Germany) discuss setting up their display ...

...which included a well-labelled collection of diesel and electric locos and ...


...fine work on a 4-6-2 Pacific loco chassis with re-built motor with flywheel.

Setting up in the garden: “Beware of the dog!

Franz Nowack (Germany) enjoying the day, and looking forward to some swaps ...

... for example, this rather nice TTR Scotsman presentation set.

Outdoors: “Beware, man at work!” Many thanks to Hansruedi Witschi, Switzerland for his very important barbecue.


Now everything and everybody is ready indoors …


...but the smalltalk is going on under the tent…

…and serious expert talk under the tree!


Penny and Martin Drayson (England) providing Klaus Baetke (Germany) with spares…

…and Barbara Enz and Roswitha Krauss (part of the catering team) supporting with refreshments!

A host of goodies on the exhibition table…


…like this quite rare TRIX ship in excellent condition.

The experts take a closer look
