Jos Geurts' Trees 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.


Well I make quite a few friends because of my website and also from posting here on the forum. Maybe the best part of this hobby :)

I got an email today from Jos Geurts in Holland and he said he was having difficulty becoming a member of ModelRailroadForums because he could not read English too well. He asked that I post some pictures of trees he made. I will leave it up to Jos to figure out how to become a member and join our little group. Any way, these trees are really nice. Any comments group?

WOW! Those are some fine-looking trees, I especially like the bark on that birch tree (or is it a beech?). And welcome to the group.

[LATER EDIT: It's a birch tree. Thank you Jos for clarifying!]

Fantastic trees Jos. I tend to overdo it with the foliage. You have a very nice airy feel to your trees. A "How to make" would be a welcome idea.

Ok, my question is, you reply to the email with a picture from an N scale module, you do this in N!?

In HO as wel in N

I am a member of a group enthousiasts who makes modules in Nscale
The pictureI send to you from the "forest" with 2 persons and a (dutch:D )garbage can(from the 1970est)is taken from such module 120cm X40cm. We've got 48 modules.So we can make a big layout each time
All the trees you can see on the forum are HO trees, most off them are placed on a permanent modelrailroadexhibition in Germany.I have made almost 600 trees and som shrubs+over 100 firtrees ,website:
The pictures on that website are not so good as in real!:rolleyes:
Back to your question: yes the pictureI send are N trees.If you want to see more of themI can send them to your private e mail.;)
