schattenbahnhof (hidden yard)
allowing many different trains to depart and arrive at the main station.

I asked Jurgen for information about the layout and here's what he said.
I have built about 10 years on my layout.
The size: 4,5 m x 2,5 m
In the middle of the room there is a room-way of 2,5 m x o,9 m.
The layout has the form of an U. Right and left it is o,8 m deep and in the back
its 1,5 m deep.
There are operating 16 trains, of this 16 trains there are 5 automaticly in
operation. Each one of this trains, you can change from the fiddle yards manuel
to the mainline track.
The layout is not digital, itīs konventionell.
I have istalled a power of ca. 1000W
The length of the mainline track is 53m, but you only can see 20m of it.
All tracks have 168m, in the visible part 62m.
See the following JPEG's for the track plan.
