Made in England


St Georgen is an HO scale layout depicting a fictional location near the German - Swiss border. It was designed primarily so that there is (nearly) always something moving, so that the viewer doesn't lose interest too soon!

Some of the features are working signals, a fully-functional turntable, overhead catenary, a shunting yard which works much the same way as the original, authentic sound effects and a minimum of 'giant-hand-crane' operation thanks to the use of the Marklin stud-contact system.

The layout shares no similarity (other than name) with any real place called St Georgen, whether in Germany or anywhere else.
