Bad Horn

Description based on material supplied by the layout owner

Bad Horn  
Richard Bucknall HO gauge 3.5mm scale

Bad Horn represents a branch line terminus in the Teutoburg Forest, Central German Uplands, around the turn of the millennium.

The station sees passenger trains from Paderborn formed of railcars or push-pull coaches as well as wagonload freight services.

Though Germany's railways were unified a few years previously, the stock is predominantly of Bundesbahn (West German) origin, most still carrying their old liveries with just a change of logo signifying the new organisation.

Trackwork is Piko, the working signals are Viessmann and train control is Roco DCC.

Sometimes I operate the layout with former East German stock representing the Ore Mountains in Saxony, though strictly speaking the signals are incorrect for this area.
