I've been working on the Landwehr Brauerei at the back of the set.  Since the layout is to be viewed from 360°, I get to go into detail anywhere I desire.

Brauerei:

And a solar array to power it:

Had to do the solar array, and more panels elsewhere, since Germany is the world's leader in development and use of solar energy.  Imagine, with as few sunny days as they have, compared to Colorado (for example) which averages 350+ sunny days per year!

Cheers!
Gordon

On my previous layout I had the Faller model of Schloss Lichtenstein.  As I was planning this new layout I was looking at Google Maps and discovered that there is much more to the Schloss than comes with the kit.  So, after much image research, I built the outlying fortifications out of extruded foam:


Though advertised as N scale, I believe the Faller kit is Z scale, so I built the outbuildings accordingly.  This necessitated the removal of a clearly N scale house, leaving a space which I filled with a formal garden (which, of course, does not exist at Lichtenstein).


Cheers!
Gordon

Hard to imagine that this is N-Scale, I already need good readers and magnifier glasses for HO LOL

OCD.  My idea of a good time is doing N scale Biersteins & stemmed wineglasses.

Sigh....

Well, if you insist.  In the Biergarten, when a spectator pushes a button, the band plays music and there are Biergarten (conversation) sounds for 30 seconds:

I don't currently have good close-ups and my photography skills leave something to be desired, but here is the Weinstube:


I realize that these may be better proportioned to HO, but I'm still pondering the problem...

It's amazing that this is N-Scale, you need an even bigger magnifier glass then I do LOL

One little detail I noticed that looks a little bit art is the big light on the house, this might be soemthing out of HO Scale. If this would be smaller it almost would look like a real picture.
