This Years Norwegian Hobby
Show was on location at Skedsmohallen
of Lillestrøm north of Oslo.
For me it was the first time
to participate with a layout in a show like this. I must say
it was very nice to meet so many people I know from the
I had lots of possitive
reactions from the visitors. As you can see from the
pictures, i built at platform which I covered with a carpet. It is also my own sofa.
I noticed that a lot of women
were very found of the smal cute trains. They really wanted
to have at coffee table like this at home!
I also spoke with a lot of
men who told med that they had z-scale starter sets at home.
Now that they could see that it actually is possible to
build a "real" layout even in a coffee table, they
told me they wanted to do something simulare.
The trais ran well all the
weekend, and only a few minor incidents where the locos
stalled on a switch happend.

Heine Pedersen from Sarpsborg showed his modelrailway in a
coffee table at the Hobby Show at Skedsmohallen this
weekend. - When I have visitors that are not found of
trains, I just cover it up, says Pedersen.
This picture was the only
report from the show.
