More information at the website
At this show we will setup the 1:43,5 scale seven layout of Ton Trip "Tripton by the Sea" this 9 meter (30 ft ) long layout will in operation with rolling stock build by Ton Trip and Cor de Jong both promotors of the scale seven standards of modelling.
It's the first time this beautiful layout will presented in Germany. Scale seven is not a well-known way of modelling in Germany so we promote scale seven for the German gauge 0 friends. We have a broad collection of rolling stock engines, coaches and wagons to run at the layout. There is no timetable but we run while we are talking with the interested modellers.

The layout is designed for a point to point operation so trains arrive in the station and after shunting they leave in the opposite direction. A push pull train with an Auto coach is typical for a GWR branch line and will regular run with a Pannier tank engine. A GWR Dean Goods serve the goods trains with different wagons for coal, parcels, livestock, fish and so on.

It's interesting to see and feel the English way of modelling and operation.
