“My layout was started in 2005 after a long break from railway modeling.
It is entirely 1/87 scale and is all dcc with most locos having sound. It is based on a area somewhere in Germany around the black forest area, but I like to run french & Austrian trains and also American trains. I know this is unrealistic but this layout is not a serious prototypical setup.
I have electric, gas turbine,diesel and steam locos and many high speed trains from trix, marklin, fleischmann and roco.
The layout has a 12 foot terminus station Area a small shuttle station, three goods yards and a 27 exit turntable which is all opperated by dcc connected to a esu ecos and a Z12 which work in tandem.
The system has no catenary as this was to not installed early enough when building and was also a extra huge cost so I run all electric loco with there panagraphs I the down position.
The layout is shaped like a number 9 with the large terminus station branching off.

Now, if you want to model like Jim – and you haven’t got off the starting blocks yet, don’t forget to have a look-see at the guide (or even if you are just after inspiration).
That’s all this time, folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
