The tunnel portals and the assembly openings are milled-out. Many Preformed Layouts contain a complete bridge kit. Track plans are also included, but you can also download them for free.

Layout assembly:
Each preformed layout (excluding the extension layouts and the layouts made of structural hardfoam) comes with the DVD "Layout Guide". This DVD will give you all necessary information for the assembly of a NOCH Preformed Layout. The included Track Plans help you setting the tracks. For a lifelike decoration of your layout we have listed all products and accessories. However this included list in only a recommendation; you can decorate your layout however you want.

Layout extension: There is no problem if you want to enlarge your layout: Almost all NOCH Preformed Layouts are manufactured according to a special NOCH standardization. That means: You can choose from a wide range of layout extensions the one you like most or you combine various preformed layouts with each other. So you can extend your layout to the left, to the right, to the front and - with the NOCH Storage Yard System - to the bottom. And if you don't want to use your layout for a while, you can transport this lightweight model without any problems or you can store it erectly.

Hint: On every NOCH Preformed Layout mixed radii are set. Both in the incircle and the outer circle, tracks with the smallest radius 1 are used. By initiation of longer trains and wagons this can cause some problems. So it's possible that the trains or wagons touch the balustrades or the tunnel portals. Please pay attention to the minimum radius indicated by your track manufacturer.
