Sean Fanelli's Train Page

This site shows my Modelleisenbahn (layout) with mainly Märklin trains and several HAG, Roco, Fleischmann, Morep, ESU, and Brawa AC digital HO loks. It contains descriptions, pictures, helpful information, and diagrams of the layout as well as links to other sites. The site will have pictures updated periodically.

On September 2, 2020

The web site also contains pictures of German, Swiss, French and Luxembourg engines taken on my trips to these countries as well as various American trains including cog railways. There are pictures of a the former Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus train and various Long Island Railroad maintenance of the way cars. It also contains pictures of my Mike's Train House (MTH) 0 gauge engines as well.
