Physical Layout



  • The physical design is of the folded  DOGBONE type where trains on the MAIN LINE traverse the full length of the layout twice in each direction.

  • This design also allows full “Walk-In” accessibility ie. no ducking under benches

  • In our case a train takes about 5 min to get around the MAIN LINE once

  • The upper part of the layout (mainly Bahnhof Strasse in Preiten) is fixed 220 mm above the baseboard.

  • The gradient through the mountains is 220 mm in 16.5 m ie. 1.3%
