European Association of Model Railroaders and Railroad Friends


March/April 2017

The 120th session of the Technical Commission of MOROP took place March 31 to April 1, 2017 at Ostrava (CZ).

The meeting was organised by the Czech assosication SMCR/KZeM CR under supervision on Jiri Pollak. We thank you all very much for the excellent excecution.

On Friday morning we first visited the SKoda VOGONKA in Ostrava because the company does not host visitor groups during the weekend. We could see the highly professional contructing of double level rail coaches for use up to 189 km/hr. We were able to see them in all stages of construction from the raw material to the nearly finished coaches.

During the session of the technical commission we all remebered the deceased honary member of the MOROP Desider Selecky of Slovakia.
