Recently another great and unique project has been accomplished and inaugurated by “some Swiss watch makers”: the train storage and lift at the EiWi outdoor layout at Witterswil near Basel – Switzerland!
On this beautiful and instructive video (https://youtu.be/l65z3AQlOQ8 ) by our member Peter Krattiger you see how it works: this is a 4 storey storage shelf, built from scratch by Christian Schmutz and Werner Metzger – G1MRA members and members of the EiWi group (Eisenbahn Witterswil) – works perfectly by an electronic control system. It is housed inside our new barn, next to the outdoor layout.
It hosts 16 trains, each in maximum 9 meters long.
It will be used for the first time in public at the EiWi-Bahndammfest of 2/3 July.
Any questions: to Christian, to Peter or to me, Charles Simon.
Enjoy the video. If your mouths are watering now, come and see it here in Switzerland!
