Have to say with just the one train trundling about I see few problems, but if there were 10 or so yes that would be tricky.

It looks like the engine was struggling on the bends there, but the layout, oh the layout -I want one!

Five decades ago when I was in Germany, Easter was called not only Fröhlich but also Gefährlich on account of the looming Abitur Exams.... does anyone know if it’s still the same?

I thought a fell was stony ground? :giggle:

As for the German:
das waren für mich böhmische Dörfer (gummitwist)

But as I 'did' French (badly) Google was my friend..

“That were for me Bohemian villages (rubbertwist)” ? According to my Oxford Duden German Dictionary. Gummibänder is rubber bands, one of my favourite German words, along with Auspuff - exhaust.

I fear Google was playing tricks with me?

The suggestion was that 'Gummitwist' was 'double-dutch'
