Description

The layout is intended to show the Burgdorf train station in Switzerland, close to Bern. It is represented with simplified and shortened tracks due to the limited space available. The station is located on the upper level in the central area of the layout. Below it on the lower level, there is a shadow station with 12 tracks for parking of the waiting trains. The two levels are connected with two 2-spur helices in the both ends of the layout.

Tracks

The tracks are selected to be 2.1mm (Code 83). The station is build using Tillig Elite trackwork, while the invisible part and the shadow station is realized with Roco Line tracks.

Control

The layout will be operated using PC-controlled hybrid system Driving Railway. The software is able to control all the trains, turnouts, signals and block sections and even lightning in the locos and coaches.
