Welcome - City of Enndingen
Gate to the valley of river Enn
Enndigen is the big city at Enntal - valley of the Enn. The little river Enn has its spring in the mountains named Hoher Ennder and has formed the valley. But the most important topic in Enndingen is the Enntalbahn, the local railway company. The line interconnects the city of Enndingen with the villages Oberennau and Ennsbruck and the famous trip destinations Ennschleife, Ennsklösterle and Berglenn.
Enndingen is a mid-size model railway located in Germany and showing German landscape. The model covers roughly six square meters and is built in the small size N scale (1:160). For example a human figure is about 1 cm tall. The railway hosts and operates well known German locos and rolling stock from the seventies till now. The landscape shows the typical rural low mountain range scenery as you typically find in the mid and south of Germany. Although you will not find real places given the names of the model. This is cause my Enndingen does not want to be a copy of specific parts of the real world.
Enndingen sounds in the german language something between andiken and enndinggen and is a hommage to the used scale.
