Skandi Demo 1a (shown Left - during construction) folded for transport.
It used Trix C track from a Starter Set but their R1/2 curved points (r=360mm/438mm) used on the lower level were too tight for scale-length coaches: As 1b, the hidden storage was relaid with RocoGEOline R3 and R3/4 curved points (r=434mm/511mm), requiring small 'bulge-extensions' at the front, but with a new Maxus Van, the fold was eliminated. A Turntable and corner-concealing Hillsides for the castle and village were added.
Rocoline points used at the back were replaced by matching Trix C points.

2007-9: Squeezed-in below the 'Storage Level' of the new Beechingless Barnstaple was the 'precursor' of Skandi-Demo: somewhere for our Scandinavian Stock; using a Trix Digital Starter Set. Its track was re-purposed as Skandi-Demo - to attract people to the society stand rather than have them walk on past a static display of books and models to stands with moving trains!
