Photos from the FREMO Zuidbroek 2010 Meeting

I just returned from a quick trip to Europe where I attended the 20th anniversary meeting of FREMO Netherlands. It was the largest meeting that I’ve ever attended and featured hundreds of modules and over a kilometer of track. The H0 Europa layout reached from Scandinavia all the way to the Alpine nations of Switzerland and Austria.

There were plenty of opportunities to operate trains – everything from little commuter rail buses in Norway to international express trains on the double-track mainline running from Denmark to Switzerland to mixed freight trains on a private branch line.

Check out some of the sights that I caught along the way:

    I attended this execellent arrangement as well. Being one of the members from Norway, I am glad you found our modules worth to be illustrated on your blog. But if you want your combination of places and countires to be correct, you have to look at picture number 3 and 4: Thorshaug is in Norway (not Sweden), steinhorst is in Denmark (not Norway).

    Hi Svein,

    Thanks for pointing this out. I corrected the captions.

    Happy modeling!
