10th Anniversary of FDEM
In 2005, on the Loco Revue forum, an idea burst and dig its way. This is to build metric track modules and assemble them at Expométrique.
An interface is created and named FDEM as Cracked Of Narrow and Metric.
Two Belgian answer the call, soon joined by a third. The Belgian section decides to call Saroulmapoul.
After the 2005 exhibition, other people join the group. This time, everyone will make its own layout to Expométrique 2006.
The enthusiasm is such that the group and the modules continue to grow.
In 2015, the call is launched to celebrate 10 years of this concept.
The Belgian will be in full force with no less than 16 modules.
You can count on twenty existing and emerging French modules which will raise the visible part to good forty meters.
THE PROTO CONVENTION
The Proto is a model railway power founded in 1966 aiming to exact compliance with the selected scale for tracks, track equipment and railway rolling stock (wheels, couplings ...).
The tracks and rolling stock Proto, because of the standards of fineness and reproduction of real teams, are incompatible with industry standards published by the MOROP in Europe and the USA NMRA.
The PROTO Club exists in France since 12 years old. Proto Conventions, with a dedicated space have already been organized in Europe, notably in Houten in the Netherlands through the perseverance of Dave DOE.
The RAMMA is the first in France to meet the challenge in a space reserved for all those involved in this process: designers individuals, clubs, craftsmen, etc.
The French Club PROTO is glad to be associated with this first. He will present a workshop, a dual module to zero scale(1/43.5) and especially the industrial layout HO (1/87) of "Dock Ceinture" for the first time in its entirety (20 modules)!
