The Gross Frankewitzer Railway - GFE - is situated in the countryside near Berlin. The line works from Moningersleben to Gross Frankewitz and connects small villages such as Nesslin, Kollin, Kevlin und Sumisdorf to the rest of the world.

Gross Frankewitz, the terminus of the line hosts the management of the GFE. Also located here is the most important customer of the GFE, Steam Engine Manufacturer DAMAG . The variety of traffic generated by DAMAG and the surrounding rural communities is considerable.

That was the prototype situation. Concerning O gauge there is a very small model of Nesslin halt and the terminus Gross Frankewitz. The station is still under construction. The first building which has been completed is the goods shed. It's prototype still stands in Dippmannsdorf-Ragoesen at the former "Brandenburgische Staedtebahn".

Though the story of the prototype is totally fictitious the GFE is a very typical Prussian branchline of the late 1910's. The buildings are based on prototypes of several stations in rural Prussia. The station layout of Gross Frankewitz follows the prototype of Heiligenhafen quite closely, though a little shortened due to limited space.
.

.
Apart from being a real Prussian branch line there's one strange thing about the GFE: Rolling stock is bought from several private lines, even some English vehicles can be found here and there are of course guests from DAMAG.

You'll get a first glimpse of the great variety from the pictures.
