Bonn Hbf

Ludwig van Beethoven
Bonn = Beethoven?

What has Ludwig van Beethoven to do with Signal Boxes?

Well, actually nothing, because during his life there were no trains. But the German town Bonn, where he was born, has everything to do with Beethoven! The Power Signal Box of Bonn Hbf (Central Station) will give you some pretty challenges. The left-Rhine traffic was immense with the double IC trains in short distance and trains approaching with 160 km/h (100 mph). Additionally 7 level crossings and a symphony of commuter trains can even be a thrill for an experienced signaller.

The layout might look deceptively small, though don’t be fooled. You’ll be pretty busy!
