OK so here they are. Excuse the bad quality, the pics are from 1969.

On this one you can find me, age 4, watching the trains...
The big hill in the back was already there. The bridge had only one track, and it had a big turn. Nowadays there are three straight tracks.
The steam engine on the right is a German BR44, the first loco we ever had, from 1968.
Image

The layout from the front. The blue loco is a BR E41, the beige/red one the E03 from the German TEE "Rheingold".
Image

The boy in the front is my older brother. The red diesel loco is the German V100.
Image


At that time the layout was built up a few days before christmas, in the children room, and was gone latest end of January...
It took some years until my dad decided to build it up in the attic, where it could stay forever. And it still does.
Btw, there are some plans in my head to make it a bit bigger again, with a turntable for the steam engines...

Thank you :)
This tower is an old 'Faller' model which hasn't a real example.
If you take a look at the first pics in this topic you can see that all the old models found their place even if the layout was rebuilt again and again.
The 'old part' of the layout is still a part of the nowadays model railway.
The bridge has changed very much, the factory was the last thing that was built at all. The town with the market was my idea in the 80s, so some houses changed places and the layout didn't have streets until the early 80s, too.
But the big mountain is a part of the beginning, and also the station.
The first houses were built by my mum, and my dad built the mountains and tracks.
First thing I did was the overhead line and the travelling platform, in 1980.

I just noticed that the church changed it's place from the left hand side to the right hand side, through the years... :lol:

I wish I could spend more time on the model railway nowadays...
But maybe I'll find some more tine in winter - There are some plans in my head for making it bigger again, with a turntable near the factory ;)

The 'Brawa' model is a 'Kö' which means 'Kleinlok ölgefeuert' in German, in English 'small loco with a diesel engine'. These locos were build for shunting, and were easy to drive for shunting help worker. Later bigger engines were built in, named Köf. There were thousands of locos built, most of them out of work sonce the late 1990s... A few are still working, mostly on private railways.
The model has magnetic wheels so it really can be used for shunting with 3-4 freight wagons.

With the mini cam I posted earlier here. I took it on a wagon in front of the loco.

On the video I posted on my YouTube I took it on the tender so you can see the steam...
