Ehrwald roughly translated means “honoured forest”. Ben is our alpine layout specialist. You might remember his spectacular layout Vierbrucken (Four Bridges) which was the first model railway layout that he had constructed. This time Ben has nearly completed construction of a new layout in similar vein, but smaller, easier to transport; it fits into one car and uses plywood monocoque construction, so is light to carry. Last year the layout was exhibited in skeletal form with the spirals exposed. This year much of the scenery is completed.
