Changing the scale

Work in progress on the Welztalbahn
It's interesting how scale adjusts when you introduce something tall. Way back when, until I installed the semaphore signals in Emsingen, the tallest thing around the tracks were trains. The signals changed the scenery dramatically.

Last night, I installed the high mast lights and the scale changed again. Now the trains and the signals almost feel small in comparison to the lights towering over them. ... Which is exactly the effect I was after.

Of course, operators on my layout will now have to pay more attention to where they are putting their arms while switching cars...
