H0 Gleisplan: Getreide und Mehlübergabe in Wallscheidt
The challenge was to create a small switching layout with the TRIX C Track in H0 Gauge. It should be easy to build and to be removable and stowable. The size is about 8 x 3.3 ft. I have once seen a small switching layout with a grain lift wich i found pretty cool. So I decided to take that as the core element of the switching layout.
In the front I placed the 3 track fiddle yard. in a long turn the track leads to the station with the interchange track the switch to the grain-yard and a couple of smaller sheds and workshops. To create a idea of distance the fiddle yard is about 2inch lower than te yard. A road bridge and a couple of trees shall cover the bow between Fiddle yard and switching yard in the rear part.
Trix C Track and Märklin C-Gleis are almost the same. But Märklin C-Track has a few more elements than Trix. Slip switches are missing completely at Trix so there is a special challenge to create a small switching layout with the less options of Trix C track.
