Model train exhibition at Lahnstein/Germany in November 2009. Watch the awesome secondary-line layouts! They are extremely well made! Modellbahnausstellung in Lahnstein bei Koblenz. Besonders die Nebenbahn-Anlagen sind wegen ihres Detailreichtums sehr interessant.
Question by pokemon rocks: how do you make a secondary line of model railroad track off of the main track to store a train on your layout?
i know how to make one but how do you cut off the electricity to the secondary one so that the stored train does not move when running a train on the main track

You can order this from any place that sells non-Lionel trains.
