The ENSC is an international meeting of model railway clubs, manufacturers and dealers from all over the world who are committed to N scale (scale 1:160).
It's less about epoch or country-specific model railroaders, but first and foremost about having fun with the common hobby in N gauge.
Swiss trains drive through North American terrain, ICEs crawl behind Era 1 steam trains and French diesel locomotives have also been spotted in Finnish regions. Working together is very important and it is not surprising that many transnational friendships, cooperations and even business relationships have developed here.
The coupling of sometimes more than 800 modules and total length more than 600 meters not only impresses thousands of visitors, but also the "professionals" of the model railway clubs.
