Miscellanious information

Once in a while we take the 4 parts that make up the layout, put it in a small van and drive it to an exhibition venue in the Netherlands or abroad.

Berlin - 5. Internationale Modellbahnausstellung 2014
Orkhavnbanen was shown during the the "Internationale Modellbahnausstellung" in Berlin, Germany.

A general description of the layout, including some more information on the Tamshavn railway in Norway, can be found in the leading Dutch railway-magazine Railmagazine / issue 230.

Issue 242 of that magazine features an article on airbrushing rust and decaying paint, as last in a series about using an airbrush.

From issue 246 onwards to RM 251 we describe the complete 'making of..' our layout with lots of pictures and drawings.
