Until now i was modelling in H0, H0e, G, 2i (26,7mm Gauge).
In a few german Internetforen* you can find me under the same Nickname (like Buntbahn.de, die Feldbahnsinnigen or others).

I'am also an aktive Museumrailroader at the 600mm- Gauge Railway in Deinste (Germany) www.kleinbahn-deinste.de

Regards

Christoph

A possible term IMHO would be model(l)ing forums (or "fora", to be particularly pedantic). :wink:

BTW: Nice to meet you here too.

Cheers

Welcome Christophe! You've tackled an unusual prototype with the sail-car - is it powered or do you have to blow it along?

Hi,
@ Gerald: forums wäre auch zu einfach gewesen :wink:

@Bilco: The sail car is windpowered (or hairdryer, or i´ll have to blow it 8) ). When i was taking the photos a had to stop it because the wind was really speeding the car on the short track...

Originaly such cars where in use on the Halligrailway to Oland and Langenes in North Frisia on the Northseacoast of Germany (on 900m Gauge).
A few years ago one was rebuild for Display, take a look at: http://www.karstenhansen.de/

Christoph
