The parts for the steel construction, the railings, the handrails, and the walkways are precision laser cut from special architectural quality cardstock. The underside of the coaling station is also precision laser cut from cardstock. All parts have a realistic basic paint scheme, but additional paint and weathering can easily be added. Lettering signs for Saarbrücken and a second set for Vienna (Wien) are included.
