Hi Torstein,
Thank you so much for sharing the model pictures.
Ah yes I have been to Skjern on the railway, where they seem to have some railway preservation going.

And I just love the story - travellers only can imbibe, so good for railway revenue.

Very nice! And I love the additional story provided by the link:

”Skjern, located in a Free Church area, was once an alcohol dry area. But there was a watering hole. At the railway restaurant could thirst quenched, but only if you had a train ticket. Therefore, it was sold many tickets to the closest station - Tarm 4 km away. The number of persons that really traveled between the stations was considerably less.”

I was wondering about that - I've just asked my dad if he knew, I've never heard it before.
