The layout was situated in Henks living room and literally circles around the Christmas tree.

The layout is controlled with Rocrail and several MattzoControllers. This is the Rocrail track plan:

On the layout, many trains are operated concurrently: the TGV aka. Horizon Express, the Eurostar, the ICE, the Swiss Crocodile, the Passenger Train 7938, two cargo trains and the retro 7810 40th anniversary train.

All trains are operated with MattzoTrainControllers.
