This might be the perfect opportunity to ask companies such as Roco to make some British HO models (I've been asking Roco for a while now)
Kind regards from Germany
In Scotland we have the 1st Golf-Course worldwide = The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews ("R&A")
Your question is a bit ambiguous. The UK and Great Britain is not all and the same.
The BA (from now on referred to as the British Section) NOT to be confused with the British Sector.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_kingdom hat geschrieben:The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain) is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe.
The country includes the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland and many smaller islands.
should reflect the urban and rural landscape of Great Britain. For that purpose it could be made up of only english areas or include scenes from the whole of the UK. Due to the MiWuLa goal that all the different sections at the largest model railway show in the world shall be interconnected is Northen Ireland strictly speaking out of bounds. There are no railroad bridges or tunnels between Great Britain and Ireland.
Furthermore none of the Crown Dependencies or the Overseas Territories can be included since they are not a part of the United Kingdom.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Overseas_Territories resp.Crown_Dependencies hat geschrieben:The 14 British Overseas Territories are under the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom, though they do not form part of it.
Being independently administered jurisdictions, none (of the Crown Dependencies) forms part of the United Kingdom nor of the European Union.
That could be an interesting arrangement for the MiWuLa-engineers: A railroad bridge or - much better - the Eurotunnel between France and the British segment - in MiWuLa as "Atlantic-tunnel" already existing between northern Germany and the USA.Qrt hat geschrieben:There are no railroad bridges or tunnels between Great Britain and Ireland.
And of course there are a lot of phantastic and splendid golf-courses in Ireland too.
Last but not least - don't forget: The car system cars there have to drive on the wrong side of the street!
It would be a worldwide interesting opening with Elisabeth II and Charles in Hamburg.
Kind regards to Sweden and to the rest of the world
The contrary of 'Great Britain' is 'Small Britain'?

And he was/is right. Since China + India and most other countries in the Commonwealth drive on the left side the right side drivers on this earh are the deviators. (Die Abweichler)some englishman years ago hat geschrieben:The french (read Germans) say that they are driving on the right side. That is wrong. It is we who are driving on the right side!
Berichtigung. I was not correctly informed.
They do not travel on the right side; i.e. to the left;in China.
Thus only 44% of the Earth population travel on the left.
I remember the "höger" - action some ten years ago ...
Kind regards to all the right people
In meiner Welt wechselte wir schon am 3 september 1967 nach rechts.
Ja,ja ich denke nunmehr schneller auf deutsch als auf englisch.... Wird sofort gebabelt. Sorry
I remember that first they planned to change the right side in two separate steps: First only trucks and busses
and three months later all other cars and motorcycles.
Kind regards to all SAR-doctors
You really founded a German corner in this English corner !

Roco also made some British Freight Wagons that travelled through the Channel Tunnel. There's also an NS 657 Diesel Shunter that looks very similar to a British Class 08 locomotive:

Hornby have also made a version of the blue Sentinel diesel locomotive similar to the one in the video (second video @ 1min 40s). The loco is made in 1:76 scale, though it's small size would probably make it look OK with other HO models.
Anyway, I am sure we shall see british rail enthusiasts invading Knuffingen for going on German vintage trains 1:1 and 1:87 that is
