This standard was written by a group of module
builders in the Stockholm area during the autumn
of 2009. It is based on the FREMO standard for US
layouts. The group wrote the standard to help
members building module with American prototype.
The goal was to get a modular setup that had
followed American prototype and allowed dens
traffic during shows.
Our standard is based on the standard for FREMO H0-US Southwest Division.We
have added some extra demands in our standard. Our
modules is 100 % compatible with their standard
which makes it possible for members in the group
to participate in future FREMO events.
The standard is covering both double track and
single track modules. All modules should be built
to suit different eras.
Differences compared to the FREMO H0-US Southwest
- We build most of our mogules with a color
mixture which represents the south western part
of US. This mixture consists of Woodland
Scenic's, 2 parts T43, 1 part T44 and 2 parts
T50. We do also accept the more green color
mixture representing the north east part of US.
- We allow simpler leg arrangements to simplify
transportation of the modules.
- We demand larger curve radius. We use at least
2000 mm on double track curves and 1500 mm on
single track curves.
- We use only one type of ballast. We use
Woodland Scenic's B1393 Gray Blend Fine Ballast
for all double track and the same ballast at the
module ends on single track modules.
We will extend the standard to include narrow
gauge and dual gauge track modules when we get
members with this interest.
