    What a great gift.
    That's a nice little layout and the photos on your website look great. :thumb:

    Very cool. The thing I like about european equipement is that it is so small! You could hardly handle a small american switcher with a 40' car on this layout.

    Nice layout! How big is it? I had considered building switching layout similar to yours.

    Hi John,

    the size of the layout is 40" x 8", but only 28" were used for landscape. The other side is a hidden switching area.

    Now, that's a beautiful module! :thumb: Just to show that size doesn't matter and that less is more! :) :)

    Hard to tell it's N at all! ;) The scenery is superb :thumb: :thumb:

    Way to go :wave: :wave:

    Mein Deutscher ist nicht gut, but, Schönes Modell

    :D

    Excellent photos at your website Gerd, Really shows the module nicely.
    Does this mean you are trying to get your Dad into model railroading?

    No. I've got the hobby from my dad. He was a N-gauger before I was born.
    Since I know him, he will build a big layout, but haven't done this until today. He's to busy :cool:

    So I gave him this little for his office to play with his trains ;)

    Wow!

    That is one incredible piece of work, Gerd! It looks as though you could expand this layout, too...perhaps in time for next Christmas! :thumb:

    ...Und mein Deutsch ist auch schlecht, aber...Wunderschoen!!

    Gerd,Nice looking layout.. :thumb: That layout puts a big hole in the theory of not having room for a layout. :thumb: Thanks for sharing.
