By the "round track" do you mean the one that passes in front of the passenger station?

Thank you MacG for that additional information.
Maybe my point was confused, when mentioning a runaround track, I mean a passing-siding so the engine can go around the car to be switched.

Ah okay. I'm not so good in railroad english. I misunderstood yesterday "runaround".

The layout is covered by a acrylic glass and there are no uncouplers mounted at the track. Therefore is coupling ans switching not possible. But it is a idea for the build of the next exhibition layout.

For this year at the fair "Modell-Hobby-Spiel" we (Lok-n-Roll, taxari and I) have built a new layout with the dimension of almost 5 x 1 meter (five segments). The track length is round 29,5m. Only the two left parts have a landscape. I have only pictures from this.

How are you guys modeling the road that crosses the track by the loading ramp?

I think, it was modelled with plaster or putty. A small piece of wood we have pressed into the material for the space for the wheel flanges. Finished with a layer tinted wall paint.
