Summer school Marklin train:

This modular marklin train layout is set on five tables that link together. The mountains are made of foam, with cast urethane rocks and a product called "Rockhard" on the rest of each mountain. The engines are a Br 44 steam and a V200 diesel. The layout is a work in progress which has taken two years to build and weather. Two trains run independently and the layout can handle four trains running automatically using signals and contact tracks as switches. Children enjoy running trains, setting up buildings and trees and playing with the cars and people.
