Klapping by Mike Roualle
Klapping, an exhibition layout, is a fictionalised setting somewhere south of Graz. The layout consists of six 3' x 18" boards with an additinoal bolt on section for a diesel branch. (Trackplan). The whole point of building the layout was to run trains and introduce the public to Austrian Railways, so a good selection of stock can be seen, including Wiesel double-deck carriages, City Shuttle single deckers, 4020 and Siemens Desiro EMUs as well as a 5062 railcar. A steady flow of locomotive hauled freight trains make an appearance hauled by both electric and diesel locomotives and, to add even more interest, there is the occasional steam hauled special.
