Hi Steven,

I am really impressed![:p]. What I like most is the lok yard and the nice scenery around it, and the long line below the mountains opposite to the station, as in the Rhine valley.

BTW did you construct the platforms of your station according to the prototypical station in Bonn ? It appears so. Must have a closer look next time when I pass there.

The layout was 28 feets long by 8 feets wide and hidden fiddle yard under layout 12 feets long by 8 feets wide.


What is that in human units? ;-) 9m x 2,5m ?? Thats quite big!

Anyway. What do you mean with that it "WAS" 28 feet long... Is the layout no more???

Anyway^2; Thanks for the pictures. Nice big layout with scenery!

Hey Steven, I just saw your pictures.

That's a great layout you've got there. I noticed the sloping ceiling. Is it in the attic?

Can you give us at least a rough drawing of your track plan so that we can see what is where?
