Smallest TT layout?

Marquette: Vlak means train, vlaček is diminutive form of the same word, meaning small train or model train, or possibly toy train. -ice is a common ending in town names here in the CR (for example Pardubice, Budějovice). So CSD´s translation is spot on! You could also translate it to Toytraintown or Modeltraintown.

ArtuSch and jpachl: fantastic modelling!

Okay, thanks!

It didn't click right away because Serbian says "voz" for train, though I do know the word "vlak" - it's used in Croatian instead of "voz", and also in Slovak (I really /should/ work on improving my Slovak...). As for Budejovice, well... Budvar is my favourite beer! ;)

I started to work on an A4 sized TT layout earlier this year too. It might seem crazy, but I've managed to fit a small oval in this tiny area. It isn't finished yet and it is meant as a surprise for few people so I won't post any pictures at this time. Of course the oval has such a small radius that only few of my locos can handle it - namely custom built class 701 and 704 shunting locos and class 810 railbus.
