Hi ! Stop there ! Don't go bonkers thinking I've entered this in the wrong category !

This particular video on YouTube is not aimed at the hobbyist. It shows a teaching system for both 1:1 scale workers and or for visitors, schools, interested in how railroads did and do function in Germany...There is no scenery whatsoever and thus is not really a 'model RR'..It's a teaching devise that I believe all will get as much kick out of as I have; the mere vastness of the old and new interlocking, signaling and safety devices on German railroads,..and so entered my post under category "Prototype Railroads".
