The weekend of November 15 to 16 is split between two events with Z scale : The 16. Internationale Z-Treffen in
Sindelfingen and the Modell Süd in Stuttgart. At the latter also some larger scales are running...
Lets see the pictures:
Overview of the "Modell Süd - Bau und Bahn". About one quarter of this huge hall is dedicated to model railways.

landsscapes. Well the train has just come over the border from Germany...
The international TEE is also still in France.
