About Free-mo

The Free-mo standard emphasizes realistic scenery and trains.  Free-mo is a great alternative for individuals that desire a large layout but have minimal space at home. A small shelf layout, built to the Free-mo standard, can become a large empire at a local train show or private gathering.
