Klub modulové železnice ZABABOV

Updated: 12.9.2013

In 2013 we are going to organize 6th international meet with N-scale modules. We have the honor to organize this convention as a celebration of 25 year of N-scale in FREMO.

We are inviting all friends from all over Europe. Due to participation of modules from Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Slovakia, Sweden (maybe Poland) we are looking forward really unique international layout.




Model operation of Europe railroads based on prototype operation in early 70 e's. We would like to realize cross-border operation ČSD, DB, DR, FS, DSB, SJ, SNCF (and 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.

Operation of the layout will use DCC system using NMRA standards and Loconet. Wagons must be equipped with resistors due to detection of track occupancy.
