More info about this project, more pictures from the construction, as well as photos from the old layout of Jivko can be found in The layout of j.k.kolev topic at forum (in Bulgarian language).

Note: Due to the large area occupied of the track plan and the presence of 3 narrow gauge routes, the terrain generation for the 3D viewer of SCARM is too slow with the default settings. In order to speed-up the terrain rendering in 3D viewing mode, you can change the settings from “Tools” > “Settings” > “3D View” > “Baseboard” > “Rendering quality (speed)”, using the option “Average (very fast)” in the drop-down list.
