...and the privately owned railway company GFB (Grimstad Frolands Banen) is operating a small strech of track from the norwegian coastal town of Grimstad up to Rise, some 20 kilometers into the country. There it meets the NSB (Norwegian state railways) line from Arendal. NSB still runs passenger trains on the Grimstad Line, but all the freight is now handeled by the GFB. In real life, the Grimstad Line was closed down in 1961, but in my imagination, and in my layout room, it survived and we're now in 1965.
Please join me in my quest to replicate this sleepy little railroad. Any comments on my work are most welcome!
The layout has been dormant for many months, so I just felt like taking a picture of my brass NMJ Superline 32.290 steamer doing some switching in Grimstad. The car is a reworked Fleischmann model. The picture is taken with an old Iphone 4s.
