Action on Saguaro River
Heavy action on the tracks, crossing the Saguaro River. The Daylight GS4 is heading west with the load of cars, meeting the Santa Fe E8 A+B with a long train with coalhoppers.

The engines are brass models by AZL, American Z-line.


The Trackplan

The module is 240 cm long and 40 cm wide, divided in two equal length parts for easy transportation. In each end, the tracks are set up according to the Zmod standard, a double track with 2.5 cm distance, 10 cm from the edge.
Under the rock surface, there is a hidden 3 track station, connected to one of the tracks. This configuration makes it easy to setup more trains on shows, to give as much action as possible.
The layout is developed using 3rdPlanIt software.
