|Le blog de Piouls||By Jean-Claude Barbut. A very detailed layout, interesting tricks and amazing videos. Layout unfortunately dismantled in 2014 due to moving.|
|Réseau Luzy||By Renaud Yver. A very nice layout, constantly evolving, described in a thread of the Loco-Revue forum, and a YouTube channel with videos explaining the know-how used, and showing very nice scripted reports.|
|Les Trains Jouef||By Philippe Galaup. Everything about Jouef, from the beginnings in the 1940s. Held regularly updated.|
|c.cailleret.pagesperso-orange.fr||By Christian Cailleret. Mainly devoted to Hornby Acho production. A few pages on S.M.C.F brand, a part of which had been taken over by Hornby. Last updated at the end of 2012.|
|mmiwakoh.de||By Martin Kohler-Iwashima
Numerous photos of Lima models from 1960 to 2000 approximately.
|Les trains de François||By François Robein. I quote: “
VB, Hornby-HO, SMCF, TAB, Märklin, Fleischmann, Egger-Bahn, Faller-AMS, Jouef, these brands evoke so many memories to you that, during the thirty glorious years, spread your child dreams in front of the Christmas shop windows of toy merchants. This site is designed to allow you to dive into these dreams again…”. Z-scale dioramas are impressive.
Call to witness: who would know a fan website like Philippe Galaup’s for Jouef or Christian Cailleret’s for Hornby, but for Fleischmann (even in German or English)? I know effert.de, but it is far from complete. More recently, I discovered fleischmann-ho.com, which offers a database claimed to be exhaustive since 1952. Its access is paying (12 € per year, decreasing price).
