About Me, Henrik Laurell

This article was published May 17, 2012.

I was born in the 60s and live with my family in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Since childhood I have had a big passion for trains and most sites I have is about trains in one way or another.

The train hobby is not just about steam locomotives, there is so much more, specially sharing the hobby with people around the world. Visiting railways and building models would not at all be the same, without the friendship with others.

My approach to models are rather laid back, as far from rivet counting you can get. My goal is good looks, not every detail as the prototype.

The reality already exist, so why try to duplicate it .. ?

Making something new and exciting is much more fun.

In later years I also developed a special interest for narrow gauge trains with a gauge of 18 inches (457mm) between the tracks. Trains of this size has been used in both estate, industrial, mining and for military light railways. The later mostly in UK during the years before and after 1900.
