Looking from the station building towards Hoff oriented exit:

The retention wall is already in place, but the platform is going to see a vacuum cleaner soon... as there is still stuff in excess waiting to go off.

The catenary is one of the next problems. The original plan was to use only single masts:

Teste plataformas - 3.

It was more usual to use only two "XL" masts to cover the 5 lines, it was my next option, but there is a lack of space on the platform to insert the masts, and how could i make the suspended wires between them at my required length?




Using Dapol masts in the center of the track with two arms is also an option, as i found several photos like that.
It is the same cost as individual masts, but frees some space on platforms.

As DM Toys unleashed thousands of articles on eBay as an auction, i ended up with a few laser cut and 3d printed items for my layout at a good price regarding the original PVP.

I will show the kits later, but my curiosity went right away for the rigid NEM conectors:

Now i got to clean the track, to make a few test runs, as derails with these wagons were frequent.  :hmmm:

One of small Modebahn Union kits that had arrived is a small platform.

To be instaled in the only track at the station that has no platform, for accessing parked S-Bahn and local sets.

Only out of the box for location testing, but already feels somewhat overscale.
