|Layout||The layout size is 100 x 200 cm. The track goes from a main station at low level up to a mine on a mountain, with a track length of 700 cm, taking 2 minutes at speed 6 cm/sec = 18 km/h. Gradient is 5 percent.||It starts off to the left and goes into a tunnel and turns 180 degrees. It comes out behind and above the main station and climbs on to a new 180-degree turn. From a tunnel it goes directly to a bridge, and continues upwards and reaches the mine after a final 180-degree turn. (GIF-image 8k)|

|Switzerland, Germany||The track plan is inspired by some railways in Switzerland where a track climbs a mountain-side using turning-tunnels. One example is at Bergün on the Albula line, another at Montreaux by Lake Geneva on the Montreaux- Oberland- Bernau Bahn.||In Schwartzwald in Germany there are similar
serpentine constructions at Triberg and south of Blumberg.
