The 'Scotty' online system allows the creation of a 'timetable booklet' for a particular journey.
|The Altfelden pages are devoted to my
unhealthy obsession with all
relating to Austrian railway branch lines of the 1990s - even unto the
present day - and my little
model railway 'Altfelden' which tries to recreate the happy days I
have spent visiting and travelling on these lines. I hope they will be
interest, especially to my friends in the Austrian Railway Group.

Altfelden - the H0 Model
'Half an hour at Altfelden'
2043 008-8 (Roco model) stands at Altfelden with the usual train of two Schileren coaches. DCC means you can easily photograph a train with headlights on. Taken with my Canon Powershot A720, 1/4 second at F8 in ordinary light, brightened and sharpened up a little in the computer, and the sky tided up.
The Liliput 5146 is maybe slightly too old for my period, but it's a fine model.
Anyone interested in modelling the 1993 'Konsum' logo and lorry decor, or the phone box, please get in touch: info[at]nwrail.org.uk
Note: Altfelden is not a real place! I was originally inspired by the station at Neufelden in Upper Austria, and there is a real village (without a station) in the same area called Altenfelden, and both are lovely places well worth a visit....
