[BCRR] The layout for the 2016 live steam show

Posted by Gerd on Sunday, 20 December 2015

Hello logging railroaders,

this week, we spend two days at the convention center at Karlsruhe to set up our 2″-scale logging railroad for the 2016 live steam show. As every year, we did some changes to the track plan and added some new structures and details. We got a new “industrial spur” for wood dump cars and we’ll get a very special new structure. But most details are still “top-secret” to feet the curiosity of the visitors :-)

My dad, Jonas and Ralf supported me, so we could finish work within two days. We also did some changes to the turntable and some structures. Finally, the tracks and structures are all placed.

We also made some new wood structures from material, we found in a scrap pile from the previous event…

In January, we’ll do the last detail work in the days before the show, including the trees for the forests and all the fine detail stuff/scenes, to create a nice and charming backwoods flair.

Regards, Gerd
