A little European flavor makes this HO Scale 17 ft x 27 ft layout different from the run of the mill. This layout is themed around Bavaria in the summer bringing back the nostalgia of the 1920’s. Two main lines and lots of hidden track deliver plenty of operational action, in addition to a yard equipped with operating turntable and the cog-line back & forth in the mountains. Both main-lines have catenary across their entire runs. Small villages and large towns populate the landcape, filled with classical half-timbered buildings typical of the region. In the mountains several castles including a large imposing Schloss dominate the countryside below. Forced perspective is achieved by using a mix of HO and N scale structures. Also present is a detailed vineyard where great German wines are born. A custom painted backdrop extending the Southern German countryside into the distance completes the tableau.
