European N gauge modular layout standards ? is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.



I'm just starting my layout here. I have in mind a modular layout, so that I can move it easily around.

What is the most used standard for modular layout in N gauge ? I've found the NEM standards ( but unfortunately only for HO, and not N .

And also FREMO : 87 (, which seems to be less used than NEM.

What should I use ? What is the most spread N Gauge modular layout standard ?

(I live in Europe, so only European standards will do).

Thank you for your advice.
