Bernd Lotz, Andreas Wölfel and since 2012, Stefan Bonus, Dirk Kolowrot, Frank Hilverkus, Harald Günther, Stefan Bückmann and Andreas Görsch, since 2018 Domenic Hartmann and since 2021 Florian Zapadtka and Johannes Fusenig - BEAN`S. It was Andy's dream to build a model railroad layout based on the Union Pacific Railroad. His locomotives based on models of this American railroad company should finally find the appropriate outlet with correspondingly long trains.
We all got to know each other in our railroad club, the Club der Modelleisenbahnfreunde Erkrath e.V. Andy always talked about his dream. At some point he found an open ear with Bernd, because the construction of the landscape appealed to him. The greener part of the Midwest - hills, fields, godforsaken countryside and towns. Andy II, Dirk, Frank, Harry and the Stefans joined in the last few years after seeing the layout..and experiencing driving on it. Since the exhibition in Kaarst, Domenic has joined.
Since March 2017 we finally have a permanent home in Wuppertal where Bean`s can stay built and where we can tinker undisturbed.
