Gallery I

With today's superdetailing techniques, one certainly could weather and age EGGER-BAHN models for an extremely realistic look. But there's something fun and uniquely charming about box-stock models set up in unselfconscious dioramas. Anyone who was fortunate enough to have owned an EGGER-BAHN set as a child will remember the toylike magic of these odd little trains. Loosely laid track winding its way between green plastic fir trees doesn't necessarily mean a lack of modelling skill; rather, for many nostalgic fans, the charm lies precisely in this »perfect incompleteness«.

In this spirit we present: The EGGER-BAHN Friends' Gallery! If you have a picture (or pictures!) to contribute to this site, please email it as a .JPG file to . Submitted pictures should meet the basic requirements of a good photo (in focus, with correct exposure), and should portray a complete scene without extraneous surrounding objects. Naturally, photos used on the site will be credited to their creators. You don't have to have a layout to participate - a temporary diorama or scene can yield great pictures!
