I attended Internationale Modellbahn Ausstellung 2012 (International model railway exhibition) in Köln Messe/Deutz last Saturday. It was my first exhibition this year as I was too occupied at work and weekends to attend other exhibitions (usually I made it a point to visit 2-3 exhibitions per year).
I participated in a lucky draw from Alba Publications and to my surprise and delight, I received a Fleischmann BR 111 E-Lok in DB red livery when I reached home last night. I still have not had a chance to test run it but it would make a wonderful addition to my other German railway collections.
Here are some of the loco photos on my yet-to-be-completed diorama:
