Actually Chris Gern is more like a North American industrie in that you will find it all over the continent.It is headquartered in Canada though. :mrgreen:

GERN originated in Canada in the mid-'50s, and there are currently over 40 GERN modellers, with representatives from North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. There may be Members from other continents participating, but not everyone wishes to reveal that type of information. Goldth
Anyone wanting to participate in the fun, simply send me a PM with your e-mail address and I'll send you a bunch of GERN material: ads, billboards, calendar illustrations and other information. If you wish to create your own GERN rolling stock, please contact me for appropriate numbers - this is only to avoid duplication.

Just don't forget. GERN is 3% better than the other leading brand.

There's no "company colours" as such, so you can use any colour you wish, and that goes for the degree of weathering, too. The main purpose of GERN is as a traffic generator, and Mr. Gibson doesn't want to place excessive restrictions on what each modeller does: after all, it's suitable for whatever era you wish to model and whatever locale, too.

As I recall, the last release was the calendar art from last year. My brother, the originator of GERN and source of most of the advertising material, has been working under contract for the last year-or-so, and then began renovating his house.
When he has time to create more, I'll pass it along to all GERN modellers as it becomes available.

There's nothing like the classic ads.

I still worry about Grandpa ending up in Arnprior -- especially from a start in Chippawa.

In model railroading, there are between six and two hundred ways of performing a given task.
Most modellers can get two of them to work.

Well, it's nothing major, but I've been asked to send this along to not only the GERN modellers, but to all Members of Big Blue, from Cookie Gibson:

But a sprinkling of GERN Flux on your diet drink means 3% more weight loss.
