This modular model railway layout in HO scale was constructed by the German model railroader Dr. Franz Rittig. The layout depicts a former narrow-gauge branch line, which was operated in the 1960’s at the time of the Deutsche Reichsbahn (German Reich Railways). The model trains commute between the two stations “Franzburg” and “Friedrichsruhe”.
On the layout there are Prussian steam locomotives, class T9 of the Prussian State Railways, later incorporated into DRG Class 91, and a diesel railcar, type VT 135. Buildings, elaborately weathered, were taken from Auhagen and Kibri. The rolling stock was made by Fleischmann (steam locos) and by PMT manufacturer, Germany.
