I have been collecting model trains from my school time. Started with 12mm but then quickly switched to the N scale and stayed there for decades. My collection focus on Europe I and II Eras.
Since now I am retired, in addition to collecting, I also am a maker of brass models. For now, wagons but in future will make locomotives too. My focus so far has been on wine (founder) wagons, champagne wagons and a couple of goods wagons. In the making, I have a post wagon, a Swiss wine wagon and a couple of beer wagons. Feel free to check the section of the website with articles, I plan to add more historical information as well as the process of making a brass model.
