The more astute will have noticed that the 'Pottendorf' blog has not been updated in almost a month, spare time has been devoted to the creation of a small cameo layout - Lübars, based upon a line to a village on the outskirts of Berlin during the 1910's.
The tiny cameo layout featured below can be built within a year and will provide a great deal of personal satisfaction for those baby-boomers who grew up with plastic kits and still want to do something with their hands and mind.
Mindful of the fact that no one gets any younger, I retired from exhibiting in 2014 however an idea kept rattling about which simply would not go away. The inspiration for the trackplan is similar version of a layout that I built in 2006 - Grafenwalde.
A video and photo of Grafenwalde:
Hopefully everything will fit in a hatchback, especially as the boards are only 1200mm long, making them easier and lighter to handle.The backscenes will form a protective 'box' for the scenic boards whilst separate cool LED-strip lighting will be independent illumination.
