Oklahoma Free-mo Layout

While it is physically possible, in practical terms no two Free-mo layouts are ever the same. Because of the flexibility provided by the point-to-point design, the standard is highly conducive to allowing groups and individual modelers to come together and assemble a layout for any given event. Thus the design of each layout is dictated by both the space available and the modules participating.

This is also what has allowed Free-mo to really thrive and succeed in the Southern Plains. For example, while we currently only have a few individuals building modules in Oklahoma, the event we sponsored in 2011 brought together modelers from around the region to create a truly massive layout. Again and again, Free-mo groups in the Southern Plains are proving the concept, showing what happens when many modelers come together for an event. While we did not have an opportunity to setup during the OKC show in 2012 or 2013, other groups within a few hours have sponsored events that have allowed up to participate in large layouts. The flexibility of the Free-mo standard also allows us to setup small, but effective and enjoyable switching layouts using just the modules from group members.
