Breitenfurt saw its first public outing in Inverness today when it was displayed as a railway-under-construction. In addition to the three sections of working track there were static items set in the context of the station as well a number of both Z and N scale models filling the space behind the station. The layout was positioned right next to the entrance to the upper hall and was, thus, seen first by nearly everyone entering the hall. I was encouraged by the number of positive comments from members of the public including many small and not-so-small children. Having taken my rather cheap pocket camera with me, I have included some images below. (Click on the images to get larger versions.)
 
The exhibition stand showing the tiered display of N scale Epoch 1 trains from Arnold, Fleischmann and Minitrix.
The Breitenfurt exhibit from the west end; the visitors' first impression.

The station west end showing, from background to foreground, the static displays, a Bavarian B VI and S3/6, a BR52 with condensing tender and a DBAG track cleaner.
The east end of the station showing the branch line platform and the loco servicing facility.

The last train running. The Bavarian B VI, 'Tristan' (favourite loco of King Ludwig II) hauls five coaches of the royal train at a scale speed of just 40mph.
A general view of the layout from the east. The train identification labels can be seen on the platform canopies.
