Mid Germany, pre war, Zeitz represents a busy junction between 3 towns. Although the track layout is prototypical the appearance is fictional. At one end a twin track main line approaches the station over a Bow Arch bridge crossing the Canal.
At the other end of the station 2 Bi-directional single lines exit by way of tunnels below the castle. Between these lines can be found a regional motive power depot with turntable and roundhouse. This small depot can supply Zeitz with spare motive power for the many passenger and freights which pass the area and also supply small engines to shunt the sidings and goods yard within the station limits.
Zeitz is wired with 2 main cabs and a third to control the engine shed, the electrics being of a conventional nature. The layout features many interesting trains from this period, including freights consisting of 40 wagons plus, heavy passenger trains up to 14 bogie coaches and such delights as “Flying Hamburger” sets and The “Rheingold” all in period colour. (Not just Black and red)
Zeitz has appeared mainly in the North of the country and has not had too much exposure in the South, the layout has also been into Europe and has also featured in “Continental Modeller”. The layout requires 4 people to operate the layout efficiently and requires the use of a van to move the layout
