In Luxembourg, this railroad line is called the “North Line” or “Linn Lëtzebuerg - Ettelbréck - Elwen - Belsch Grenz” (“Ligne Luxembourg - Ettelbruck - Troisvierges - Frontière Belge). The Luxembourgian miniature world consists of an electrified, double-track main line. In addition, there is a switch between both tracks to allow track changes. Furthermore, there are first-class modelled trees and bushes, a level crossing and a large cornfield. Finally, the rolling stock has been weathered. All in all, Pit Karges has hidden so many details on his train layout that you have to look twice or three times to explore everything.

In this video, we discover one of these model rail layouts in TT scale that depicts the East German Railways. The layout was specially constructed for exhibitions and consists of two sections visible to the audience. Both sections are arranged as a double shelf layout.
