User video: Gunter's HO/HOe model railroad

Check out scenes on this model railroad layout
This video features a visit to the H0/H0e layout of my friend Gunter in Austria. The home layout is about 10 square meters large, analog operation with working overhead catenary. This allows two trains to run simultaneously on a single track. The layout requires three persons for realistic operation. During the video shooting, we had only one qualified person for operation.

The layout is divided into three segments: the main line, the local network and the narrow gauge line. Due to the huge collection of trains, Gunter can set up any era and lot of different prototype modelling, like Austrian, German and Italian trains. The narrow gauge line presented the vehicles of the famous narrow gauge mountain railroad, the Mariazeller Bahn.
