Another theme that always interested me was model trains. I had a large H0 sized collection when I was a child, but never had LEGO trains. Two weeks ago I decided to give it a try. Trains needed more investigating than Technic because there are multiple generations. I wanted to have a fully programmable solution which could be also run longer period of time on exhibitions. The latest generation with power functions and IR remote is not really good for this purpose.

Trains bought mostly on eBay.

I decided for the old 9V system which was discontinued by the end of 2007. I quickly built up a collection from eBay. Model trains are very popular in Germany. Next step will be to use non-LEGO DCC digital controlling.
