  3. Dia dhuit! Hi! I'm new here. And I'm growwing up @ "The Flanders Fields County", in the west of Belgium. A Flemish/Dutch spoken part of Belgium. And the place where more than 70.000 young Irishmen are killed in the First Great War. I'm now 20yrs traindriver for the SNCB, the Belgian National Railways Company. My first Irish Railways models: The Lima 207 'Enterprise' and 3 'Galway livery coaches'. Since a few years. I'm a member of the Dutch/Holland "Britse ModuleBaan 00 groep. Just a group of friends who likes the Brittish Railways. (I Am the only Belgian one, and the Irish driver only) Every one build a module "lookbox" (180cm) an 2 'Black Box'es" (2x30cm). A few times a year, we have a meeting alround Holland: @ 9:30AM we built up the modules; 11:00AM we start the driving sessions alround the clock of 04:00PM we deconnecting the layout. We use the white Roco z21 central station with Roco Maus; Roco App; and Digitrains App. The last year, we have our first invitations on Eurospoor 2017 and Ontrax 2018 (Utrecht NL both). En we go to Eurospoor 2018 again: https://www.flickr.com/photos/46742861@N03/40761001522/in/album-72157692712780801/ ; https://www.flickr.com/photos/46742861@N03/38992863940/in/album-72157692712780801/ ; https://www.flickr.com/photos/46742861@N03/40760996982/in/album-72157693723271874/ ; https://www.flickr.com/photos/46742861@N03/40760998532/in/album-72157664668954677/ Before, i have support a part the Fiddle Yard modules.
