The Wägitalsee (Lake Wägital) is the site
of one of
the many hydroelectric dams in Switzerland. At present, only the river (Wägital
downstream from the dam has been developed into scenery. It was
necessary to do this first in order to install the two bridges over the
canyon which allowed me to complete track laying for the layout. With
the track plan complete, I can now devote my efforts to installing the
DCC system. I chose EasyDCC because of its ease of use, full
function, and reasonable price. I will be using radio throttles to make
the controlling of the trains easier for the operators.
The first completed scenery for the layout is shown in these images.
The water is Realistic Water
from Woodland Scenics.

Same as above, but from a slightly different angle.
