Pheeew, if I knew... Lost track of the source. Looks like N scale. In Maerklin HO, incorporating/hiding some R1 curves in the tunnels, but using wider radii in the visible areas, considering the ramps for creating a twice around loop plus having some straight stretches of track, I would reckon 100 x 180 cm were needed.

Here is a similar - very ambitious - HO scale approach for which I know the dimensions: 45 x 82 cm. Considering that it is impossible to replicate such narrow curves with Maerklin track and allowing motive power to climb the hill with more than one car, the space needs at least to be doubled.

Track plan...
Again, board dimensions need to be inflated considerably - i.e., doubled as a minimum measure - in order to match maerklinista needs. And clearances have to be adjusted, too - at least 7.5 cm without catenary.

A railway bridge pinned in front the steep walls of a narrow gorge looks whimsical? Not in El Chorro, near Álora in the province of Málaga, Spain.

2) Yes, indeed still in use - train on bridge in 2012
3) Close-up of train

The work is based on the "Lilliput Logger" track plan. I understand it is 4 x 8 ft in HO scale.

I really like this layout...I have seen some really excellent layouts. You have to get really creative if you get much smaller (I know a guy). It has it all...a line for continuous running, tracks not parallel to the edges, lots of siding an shunting possibilities, and interesting scenic options. The only catch seems to be the mountain in the middle, which restricts the view of the far side (unless the owner can install it so the layout can be viewed from 3 or more sides). The other issue could be control panel, but a MS/MS2 or other wireless controller would easily fix this issue.

I count six rails...Laugh



Yes, but the two middle ones end at the end of the bridge on the Swedish side.

Link to a map of the Haparanda - Tornio area.

The bridge is between Finland and Sweden and given that the gauges are close - 1524 mm in Finland and 1435 mm in Sweden - there was no room to create a traditional three-rail track, instead this interleaved four-rail track was created. (Releated to the text on the map: Soumi is Finland in Finish and Sverige is Swedish for Sweden).



This one has six usable rails ... Picton rail Ferry Ramp
Between this and the one at the other end is a ship to take the trains.

Location: Picture at Wellington, New Zealand, northern end of the link between the North and South islands of New Zealand.

The points are on the wharf, so this represents 3 tracks into the ferry, you can see them getting splayed at the far end of the ramp, so there is no need for points which take up valuable rolling stock space inside the ferry, while keeping the bridge and ferry opening to manageable sizes.

Nice photo, AK. There is also a tunnel (longer than this tunnel)/bridge combo in the final scene of the 1965 Frank Sinatra film, Von Ryan's Express. I checked Wikipedia and

it states filming was in Northern Italy. Cheers,PeterSmile

Amongst other places in the Santa Maria Novella station on at Florence and on the Ferrovia Dei Due Mari between Civitavecchia and Orte, namely at the stations of Capranica and Monteromano as well as at the bridge over the Mignone.

The last scenes were shot at the Gorge of the Gaitanes near El Chorro in Andalucia, Spain - one of the places I presented earlier in this very thread:

And another movie scene. The El Chorro bridge is clearly visible. This is on the old Sevilla-Cordoba line.

HI AK, thanks for that good info. I didn't know that was in Spain. Goes to show Wiki is not always correct! Great scene and film.

It's a great WWII film, Brandon. If you've never seen it, it's worth a watch. Peter ThumpUp

Some of us have locos with lighted running gear. I am not sure this is prototypical historically, but even if it is added for a "museum train" this one has it so you can say it's true! (link rather than attach to give proper photo credit).
