Free-moN© (N Scale Free-mo)
The official web site for N scale free-mo modular railroading.

Free-mo is a modular scale railroading standard designed for individual modellers that specifies bench work, track work, scenery and digital control intended to raise-the-bar for scale modular railroading in general and, in this case, for N scale modular railroading. The standard promotes, and even forces, prototypical appearance and operations by using a single main line traversing the center of the module resulting in prototypical point-to-point or loop-to-loop configurations and operation.

The Free-moN standard, created by Wesley Steiner, is maintained by the Free-moN Yahoo! group. Come join the discussions and see what is developing. Many participants across the country and around the world have already built modules and are operating free-moN layouts. This is a new idea for N scale modular railroading in North America and we welcome your participation.

The Spirit of Free-mo (what it is)

The following list summarizes the spirit and benefits of free-moN over existing modular N scale standards:

These standards allow for module construction that is free form between the end-plates resulting in flexible and adaptable layout configurations to fit any available space.
