About the blog

This rambling blog is about building a couple of simple layouts in HO, the available space is rather small but the prototype was not built on the grand scale, most rural stations were merely a curved loop and a siding, which is easy to replicate.

Then and now

 A story in pictures

 The postcard of the old Gasthof at Behringersmühle dates from about 1900, before the railway reached the end of the valley.


 
The photo of the old Gasthof at Behringersmühle was taken in 1947, the G.I.'s seem to be relaxing during a jaunt into the local countryside. This was once a favoured meeting place of the teetotal and vegetarian Austrian corporal. Details to note are the isolators for the electric supply and telephone. The Gasthof is half a kilometer from the terminus of the Wiesenttalbahn.


 Today, the building still exists albeit rebuilt with numerous extensions.

  1. I'm hoping the GIs in '47 were singing 'Smoke, Smoke, Smoke That Cigarette', or maybe 'Across The Alley From The Alamo'.http://www.bobborst.com/popculture/top-100-songs-of-the-year/?year=1947
