Grossbahn - G Scale - Largescale - Spur IIm



19 of December 2018

I was lazy.
who cares?
My kids are grown up, grandchilds are not in sight, and... well, I was lazy.
but this guy was not content.

He sent me an ice-cold letter brought by an menacing looking elf, who introduced himself as Marlon.
it said, that, among others there are three generations of Millers from Brooklyn, expecting to see christmas deco on any decent modell train page.

"You do want to have a decent website, do you??" the elf asked.

I did not want to decline...
so, here we go:


Merry Christmas to all! - Allen Frohe Weihnachten!

(for the young: that is, how we spelled it, when I was young)


Oh, and by the way, the elf told me, to mention, that a train is a train, is a train.
No matter, if it is driven by horses, by steam, air-pressure, Diesel or electricity. No matter, if it runs through the countryside, through mine shafts or through the bellie of a city.


The Southern & Gulf RR is an indoor Layout.
Powered by plain old analogue DC.
It is the fourth "serious" layout I am building, since I got my first LGB starterpack for X-mas 1970 (or was it '69?)
by the way - what is a "layout?
It can be a handfull of track, thrown on the ground or floor or it can be a beautiful detailed miniature world. Or anything between. My goal is to create a miniature world in a fictive southern US setting at the second half of the 19th century.

The scale of my layout would be best described as "rubberscale". that is owed to the fact, that i got a huge collection of figures and buildings in scales from 1:32 to 1:24 - while my rolling stock (mainly LGB and Playmobil) are from 1:22.5 to 1:20.3 scale.
the longterm goal is to use the compromise of 1:29

Are you an orderly person? if yes, you should leave this site as quick as possible!
because I am a messie! (and some say, that it is contagious.)
i start a lot of projects and finish them - eventually...
if you are a messie too, or resistant, come in and enjoy!


Die Southern & Gulf RR Modellbahn ist eine Innenanlage.
Betrieben mit dem erprobten analogen Gleichstrom.
Sie ist die vierte "richtige" Anlage, seit ich 1970 oder 69 mein erstes Starterpack zu Weihnachten bekam.
Das Thema sind fiktive Landschaften und Orte der suedlichen USA in der zweiten Haelfte 19. Jahrhundert.

Die Anlage wird im famosen "Gummiscale" gehalten sein. ich habe eine grosse Sammlung Figuren und Gebaeude in den Maßstaeben 1:32 bis 1:24 - die Fahrzeuge dagegen (vorwiegend LGB und Playmobil) sind mit 1:22,5 und 1:20,3 deutlich groesser.
langfristig werden Gebaeude und Fahrzeuge auf den Kompromiss von 1:29 geaendert.

Sind Sie ein ordentlicher Mensch? wenn ja, dann fluechten Sie schnell von dieser Seite!
ich bin ein Chaot! (und angeblich soll das ansteckend sein)
Ich fange viele Projekte an, und beende sie auch - irgendwann...
Wenn Sie auch ein Chaot sind, oder abgehaertet, dann hereinspaziert und viel Spass!

this is, how the layout looks now:......!......So sieht die Anlage jetzt aus:
