Model Train Layouts & Track Plans

Home Hof Train Station in N scale (updated)

This is one quite realistic model of Hof train station in Germany as it was in 1951. The project is designed by Karlheinz Marks as modular layout in N scale and the construction already started.

The initial planning started in February 2014. Because the whole station would spread over 12 meters (approx. 40 ft) in N scale (1:160), it was shrunk to around 60%. That's still about 6.7 meters (22 ft). The track material was chosen to be Peco N Streamline, including: approx. 151m of flex tracks; 30 double-slip turnouts; 132 regular and curved turnouts.

The station has more than 30 tracks, two passenger terminals, several yards and shunting areas and two turntables, serving two roundhouses, which together holds more than 50 stalls for steam and diesel engines.
