It seems to me as if the first turnout is placed on the bridge.




oh, I nearly missed that, yes the one to the left definitely seems to be on the bridge. The bridge must be quite wide at that point (no pun intended Blushing ).

Hi AK,

Regarding the Kräwinklerbrücke, I am intrigued by the seemingly compact layout of the station and the adjacent industry.
I thought that might be a sawmill, glass-making or a brickworks.
It would make a basis for a compact model layout.
Unfortunately, I think my days of building are over, but maybe a small one .....

So researching that further I can find no other information pertaining to that photo.
The town of Remscheid near Wuppertal has no geographical siimilarities (from maps, other photos) to the photo you showed.
Do you have a source for that photo please?

Regards
Kimball

Hi Kimball,

The Kräwinklerbrücke once spanned the Wupper river, but you cannot detect it anymore on modern maps and pictures since the area was permanently flooded in the 1980s upon the construction of the Wupper dam, which changed the landscape dramatically.

The historic photo of the Kräwinklerbrücke station you are referring to is the courtesy of the "Bergischer Geschichtsverein Abteilung Hückeswagen e.V.". Inter alia, it can be viewed here (scroll down to the very last photo): https://hueckstory.weebl.../kraewinklerbruecke.html

Further fun facts about Kräwinkel:

The Wuppertalbahn train meet stations had only entrance signals, but no exit signals (as can be seen on the track plan in post no. 705). By default, trains entering a station had to come to full stop unless waived through by the local station master (dispatcher) on the platform. All stations along the route had a similar trackplan as Kräwinkel, and all were curved.

Thank you AK for following up on my query.
I checked through the links, there are copious references and photos.
A beautiful plan too.

But I am somewhat relieved that a layout has already been built.
That takes the pressure off. Cool

regards
