Childhood Memories (2): Early Town & Train Layout . This is the follow-up town to the other one I just posted. It is pretty much fully colorized, more compact and the density of buildings has increased a lot. Due to reasons of limited space, I went for only using my 12V train equipment, whereas the 9V transformer only provided illumination. The main picture shows the new centre of town, with a central parking square in front of the Police Station and "Bennsdorf" Streets & Community Maintenance, a small company right next to the train tracks. Further in the back, on the other side of the double train tracks, the schemes of the newer, colorized version of my "Maier GmbH", a Motorcycling & Bike Store as well as other small houses can be made out, too. . An overview of the entire town, which also included a minimized harbor area, different industrial parts as well as an old and a new center of town:
Looking from the old town´s center towards the more industrial part of town, inmidst of one of the "circles" of the train tracks´ "8-shaped" shunting area:
A bird´s-eye view to the second circle of the train shunting area, showing part of the old town (a small church currently being renovated & the Prisoners´ Tower surrounded by a square city pond), the nearby cargo train station and a gas station providing a motocross race car exibition:
The new, colorized "Maier GmbH" next to a bigger railroad crossing, now equipped with the "Delivery Van":
City life right before a big motocross racing event: Cruising sports cars and racing teams invading the town...
Next to a thundering cargo train, the local fire fighters, being drilled by their strict old fire chief, are sweating their butts off in daily fitness training. The emergency´s always close - especially before the town´s famous motocross events...
The old center of town, nowadays surrounded by shunting railroad tracks: the old church is being renovated, right next to the medieval Prisoners´ Tower, the last relict of the ancient Great City Wall... In the backround, a nice place to live: the schemes of the biggest house in town: my White Villa.

The next, follow-up version of an almost entirely colorized Car Repair Shop & Scrapyard. The second picture shows the view from the roof of the penthouse appartment, down to the big yard and the train tracks. The building and yard were, as always, pretty well illuminated by 12V lights.
Last but not least, the Lego City Skyline behind my brother´s Märklin Train Layout:
