While watching the first seconds of this video, you will immediately realize that this model railroad layout in N scale is more than 25 years old. This N gauge model railway layout was constructed by a teacher in the 1990’s in Germany. When Hermann Frantz started model railroading, there were neither DCC software nor decoders or track occupancy detectors. Because he had very little space in his apartment, he chose the smallest scale for railway modelling, namely 1/160 scale. He constructed a base plate of 2.6 m x 2.0 m. For using several toy trains on the tracks, he chose the latest model train control system at that time. It was the “MpC System” published by Gahler + Ringstmeier. It is a program for multiple train operations which is running on MS DOS. For laying model railroad tracks, he was using the N Scale FlexTrack made by PECO.
