Last weekend took place Railexpo 2009, a model railroad exhibition near Paris. I didn't make a lot of pictures at the exhibition but some of my friends did. Here is a link to a thread on our French forum. It's in French but images speak by themselves...

The pages are quite heavy (loaded with lots of pictures). But they show some examples of great modelling.

Hope you don't mind Frederic.

I don't mind Rick. I just wonder what the translator machine will do with some of our funny French jokes...

Very nice and actually the translator handled the French quips very well.

Thanks for the forum link Frédéric! Amazing quality of modeling. I will try to go down there for the show next year! Hopefully we'll meet (although I am a little scared to meet some of the modelers on that french forum, having discovered what some of the guys was fantasizing about doing to me ;0) )

Really nice models on that thread. I like the shadow box of the maintenance shed on page 8 and the scene with the train crossing the river in the quite town

Built a waterfront HO layout in Ireland http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=22161 but now making a start in On30 in Australia http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=52273

Thank you so much, Frederic, for sharing the links and photos. I like the term 'network' for the narrow shelf layout. There are many tremendous scenes on this railroad. I'm very impressed. This goes to show that you do not require a deep shelf to create a realistic scene!

Mike, this is the advantage of many European flats not being that large. People have learned to build models in very small spaces. But, some do it better than others. The one shown at the exhibition was particularty well done.

Thanks for posting this link. I spent an enjoyable hour or so looking at all the fine work. European scenic work is excellent, there is such great attention to detail and scale realism there. I hope to see the same trend catch on here.
