Bondale is my latest project. A bit simpler than Nordbad-Bräu. The layout is all to be set on 1 level except for Bustham station which will be 6" (15cm) above the main boards. The pages below show the idea behind the layout, the station plans, stock requirements. Bontal will use the same track layout but different stock, and as time goes on, different buildings.
