...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!
Yesterday me and a friend started construction of the Grimstad Line 2.0. I have kept the three main modules for the Grimstad station, but the rest of the layout will be totally rebuilt. I hope to be able to post a schematic track plan soon.
L-girder benchwork under construction.
Grimstad will be in the center of the room now, where the old peninsula used to be.
