Past FREMO conventions in the Czech Republic: 

- Milevsko 2004 (H0+H0e+N),
- Praha 2005 (N), 
- Milevsko 2006 (H0+H0e). 

In 2007 we are going to organize in co-operation with our German friends third international meet with N-scale modules. We are inviting all friends from all over Europe. Due to participation of modules from Poland, we are looking forward really unique international layout.

Theme

Model operation of CSD system based on prototype operation in early 70 e's. Base on number of registered modules we would like to realize cross-border operation CSD//DB/DR/PKP. Basic layout consists of N-RE modules, but all other N-scale modules are welcome, as long as they will operate with wheel sets using NEM standards. We welcome FREMO-N modules, which fulfill these standards. Separate FREMO-N layout is possible also, but we prefer common layout. 

Operation of the layout will use DCC system using NMRA standards and Loconet.

Arrival

Arrival by car

Prague is easy to get to from all the directions. 

From the West, highway which connects Nurenberg and Munich (A6) and crosses the border at Rozvadov via Pilsen. New highway around Pilsen is opened from last year, so there is direct highway connection from border to Prague now.

From the North we recommend route through Dresden. From Dresden to Ústí n. Labem is new highway opened (A17), there is only short distance without highway (about 25 km).

From Vienna and Brno is highway connection also possible.

In the Czech Republic you have to buy Coupons for using of highways!
