    Hello,

    Two weeks ago the brand new layout "RIMKOV" has been presented on the
    " 9de Grote modelspoor expo " in Leuven near Brussels, Belgium.
    This expo is organized by the Belgian magazine "Modelspoor magazine" every two years.
    RIMKOV is the name of the layout who's inspired by the Rugby locomotive testing station in the U.K.
    The name Rimkov is a mix of the names of the builders Rik Martens and Koen Vermeulen.
    It would be great if I would receive some feedback.
    Keep in mind that I had to do without a drawing ore detaild information.

    That looks absolutely superb! I particularly like the other detail too, especially the control room with its operator, congratulations on a brilliant layout!

    This is brilliant. Little details such as the welder add so much to the layout. Do you have any plans to display it in the U.K? With an A4 locomotive too!

    I was looking for a A4 locomotive in Scale 1:32 but I did not find one. There whas also not much time to look for, only 17 months from the start of the contest to the final during the exhibition weekend.
    It wil be displayed at Warley National Model Railway Exhibition 2109.

    Greetings, Rik

    Excellent, I hope to see you next year!

    Would "Gauge 1" work for you?
