There are a lot of pictures (the entire build) of this layout on the German board. A wonderful layout.

Very nicely done. :thumbup:

Arseny - do you know if the overhead catenary is energized :?: It appears from the closeup photos that the pantographs are in contact with the overhead wire.

Yes, as I know, the catenary is energized, you are right.

Wow!! That's great. Overhead, energized catenary is one of the things on my long term modeling to do list. Track work (maintenance) for example, must be difficult. There are additional considerations, I would believe one must get out of the habit of simply reaching on to the track to fix something, re-rail a car, etc. Hopefully, one day I'll try it.

The title says, he's modeling Höllentalbahn.
This line in southern Black Forrest (German: Schwarzwald) is known for having been a testbed for 20 kV 50 Hz power supply from the 1930s through the 1960s. Then the supply was changed into the standard 15 kV 162/3 Hz.
