Thanks for your nice comments guys.

This module serves a a "bridge-module" between the imaginative creations of my friends KEG/Otter1 -like the steam punk laboratory or the Frank&Stein company with a vampire flight training school in the upper part - and my Toeffelholm layout, that is a bit more situated in the "real" world.

So the bridge-function has as well a dramaturgic purpose as a technical one. It connects the Code 143 rail profile I use with the Code100 profile used by my friend and provides access to the track in the upstage of my friends modules. So trains can disappear in the catacombs and appear again in the other direction on the front track.

I was so much fascinated by this idea of a subterranean storage place for books, that I had to model my own Toeffelholm version. I really recommend you this wonderful book "The City of dreaming books"
Not so much trains in it - except from the book railroad of the rusty gnomes- but if you are a friend of imagination, you will love it.
