Jiminies! Nice layout. Amazing depth of the urban scenery.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Incredible. I wondered if anyone (or any group) would attempt something quite as vast as that. Reminded me of this photo:

I'm curious how they perform maintenance in some areas. Skyhook?

Is this a museum layout?  Looks nice, but the big track and rapidos look a little out of place.

Thats what I was thinking , there doesn't appear to be enough of untracked area to have a lift out man hole . I don't see attachment points in the ceiling . Maybe that massive yard has a pivot point that enables it to swing on its side to a vertical plane , then when they are through messing with it , it rotates flat and is lucked down . All the rails would need to be butt mated . There has to be a better way , that the vantage points shown are not obvious to me .

Nope, that is the private work of one guy. However, if you call ahead you can visit the layout.

The big track was all you got when he started the layout, and the Rapidos are standard in Germany.

Very nice .. I used to live in the Stuttgart area in the 70s, and I think he captures the flavor very well ..

Definately a need for track cleaner cars

I stood in a traffic jam in the "Heilbronner Strasse", that he perfectly copied, twice a day for three months.

Wow, that is definitely an impressive layout, especially for a one mans work.  I am amazed at the details, as well as the owners scratch building and construction ability.

Definitely gives me hope that I can reach my goal of building 30th St Station and parts of Amtrak Phila. Div from Zoo out to State, Fair, Perry and the ACL.
