    Hi,

    I am Franz from Lund, Sweden. I have joined trainboard because I find it an excellent resource for DCC++ and other topics.

    I am originally from Germany but have been living in Sweden for almost 15 years now with my wife and two daughters. I am a physicist and PhD, and work in a management position in a large accelerator based research facility.

    I have too many hobbies and too little time - model trains in our local club, my Swiss mountain railroad layout at home which is pretty much in the timber age (status of construction, not era modeled).

    So, thanks for letting me in!

    Cheers,
    Franz

    Welcome aboard, Franz. Working in an accelerator research facility? Must be fascinating. I'm just an electrical engineer.

    Hi Franz!

    Is that Max IV? Or ESS?
    Does your local club model in Z? I might stop by, if it wasn't for the latest restrictions (I used to work in Malmö).

    Cheers from Sweden

    Hej nameless Feline,

    thats MAX IV. I am afraid we don't model in Z, but I am for the most joine the O-scale activities, and don't do that at home either.
    You are always more than welcome to visit, except right now, of course. We basically went on hiatus with our physical club activities. But we do zoom meets and you are welcome to join.

    Cheers,
