Introduction and ratings

In the section "Travels - Exhibitions - Fairs" I 'll write, and rate, the various places of railroad, railway and model-railroad interest, that I've visited.

These are my personal impressions, and my personal advice.

I will also write, but not rate, about places I haven't visited yet, but would like to visit.

When visiting a new place / event, I've often wished that I could have known more about the place, so I didn't "waste" valuable time trying to figure the set-up out.

I hope that these pages can help you and others in gaining a better experience, when you visit the place / event.

One general piece of advice : Use the internet to find videos from especially "Eisenbahn-Romantik" about the places you're going to visit.

If you have further information, believe that things have changed or information is out-dated; - please contact me.

The rating is purely my own, and VERY subjective. I will give between 0 and 3 locomotives. On occasion I will award 1/2 locomotive.

1 locomotive :  A good railroad place to stop on your journey.

2 locomotives : A railroad place worth a detour; something you don't see everywhere.

3 locomotives : A railroad place worth the trip in-itself; - something you ONLY see at this place.
