goedel:Who makes the best N Bavarian rolling stock in your opinion?

Hello Florin and welcome to the forum from a relatively new member. :eek:) [Don't tell anyone but this is a great place to be!]

In terms of N scale I am in the same position as you. I have been collecting N scale for about three years now and am hoping to start building a large layout some time soon. (I have to throw away several wheelie bins of rubbish from my 'office' first.) You can see a selection of models, including some Bavarian, on my website, http://trains.manvell.org.uk, along with some Z scale stuff bought since mid September. If I can be of any help to you, please do let me know.

All the best,
Chris

I bought everything I liked .. until 2005...when i fall in love for K.bay.Sts.B.Well, I started 60 years ago with Hornby 0 gauge. I loved that railway but it all disappeared sometime when I wasn't looking. Then I had a bit of Hornby 00 but again that sort of disappeared. I stated collecting H0 (Fleischmann, Jouef, Lima) and built a layout for my children. It didn't last long as we needed the room as the children grew up. I still have all that stuff but plan to flog it on eBay some time. As retirement loomed I decided to ditch H0 and go for N so that I could build a layout where I could run scale length trains. Two years later I have a massive collection, including most of the Fleischmann special edition sets. I have a fairly good idea as to the layout plan that I will go for but that is off topic here. Finally, I went to the Inverness club's exhibition lat month and operated a small Z scale layout for a friend and fell in love with it. I am about to start building a Z layout for exhibiting (if it is good enough). See the layouts section of this site if you want to see what I am up to.

English is a difficult language but also very flexible. :eek:)

With best wishes,

In 1900, from the first lot of Maffei's locomotives, five arrived in Romania (factory number 2130, 2133, 2135, 2140, 2141).
Therefore, factory numbers and train numbers of this Maffei-delivery got somehow mixed up.
BTW, i'm from Romania
