The club was founded in 1966. The first years had the club housed in an approx. 35 m2 lofty room in Aalborg city center.
Model railway club HO Aalborg
The existing premises were taken into use in 1975. From the start, the plant was built after a German model because of the date range of equipment. The plant was built around the German station Altenbeken.
Over time, and especially in recent years, there has been a major development in Danish equipment and accessories, both as finished models and building kits. This has meant that the interest as well as the possibilities for driving Danish model have grown
In connection with a hobby exhibition in the autumn of 1992, we tried forces with a small Danish plant, which was built around a model of the railway bridge between Aalborg and Nørresundby.
This project gave us a lot of inspiration to "Ford" our plant. This resulted in the fact that at the Annual General Meeting in Feb. In 1993, it was decided that the existing plant should be converted to a Danish plant over a period of time. The new plant is based on local conditions, and periodically it will cover the period from 1950 to the early 70's.
In the course of the next few years, we have put the tracks on all main sections as well as the new ones - Frederikshavn - Kvissel - Aalborg - Svenstrup and the private road with Hadsund st.
We let one of the old German stations - The ending temporarily survives like Aarhus when it fit well into the new plants. Hadsund Station was completed quite quickly with landscapes and buildings - while Hadsund was doing a removable module, which we have since had the pleasure of participating in various model railway showings.
During the conversion we also decided to switch to the digital drive of the locomotives and we chose the Lenz system. We got set up watches that run model time (1 modeltime = 12 min) and in the course of 2001 we could therefore complete our first Danish driving plan. Landscaping was mainly the area around Frederikshavn and Svenstrup on which it was worked.
It was intended that the recycled "German station" later be rebuilt and as the drive on the plant did not prove to be optimal, we started in 2002 to puzzle with slightly larger conversion plans.
After many ideas and drafts, at the 2005 General Assembly we could adopt a proposal that would radically change parts of the plant. At the new plant, more emphasis will be placed on single track lines, freight driving and improved access to the plant.
In spring 2005, large parts of the plant were taken down - Frederikshavn, Svenstrup and Aalborg stations remain while the rest is being rebuilt.
We used the apartment to set a new ceiling, paint the room, get a new fluorescent lamp and insert an extra door to facilitate access.
