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???

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?

Yes, what a tremendous, impressive layout and, previously, impressive lineup of controllers.

If I had that, I would have never got a CS. That was also a hefty investment.

BTW, CS cannot control routes yet, so you lost capability. You're not using routes now?

Further you mentioned 1100 c-track turnouts. Is that correct? 1100? Wow....

Sure looks like it!
Nice pictures, good to see your efforts are definately worth it. By the way, the BR 290 shown in picture number 4 seems to have one axle derailed, has it? (The most right one in the picture)
Just a check... wink

don't you just hate it when one places a train on the layout, take pictures, reduce then, post them, and then see that you forgot to set the signals properly... :-)

Nice long trains !
