Rummelplatz

Built By: Bryan Finley

Description: Rummelplatz is German for "Fun fair" or carnival. This module is a double using 15 German structure kits with lights and AC motors, including Vollmer Swing Boats (motor), Roundabout (motor), Geisterbahn ("Ghost Train")(light and sound module/motor), Festzelt (festival tent with light) and two market stands; Faller Reisenrad (Ferris Wheel)(motor, lights), Jupiter (rocket ride)(motor, light), Carousel (motor), Chair-O-Plane (motor), Octopus (motor, light), and four game or food market stands. The power supply is 16 volt AC transformer wired to two 10-nodule power buses bolted to the middle support plank). Red on-off button switches have been installed on the front of the box to allow visitors (and operators) to turn on/off rides. [Advisory: if you put push buttons on your module, you need to secure the box from sliding out of position and misaligning the track - I found and used a 1" foam board to brace it to the module behind it]. Debut 1/19-20/2019 Dallas Area Train Show. Figures and more lighting to be added for the next show!
