Thank you, Duncan, for this wonderful link. It is all in German, but a link to the UK Evening Standard gives this interesting text….
The strangest football stadium in the world? Train line runs through the ground of a Slovakian amateur team
There are a number of things that could potentially distract football players during matches – but a train hurtling its way past a pitch during a game has got to be perhaps the most unusual – and distracting – of them all.
However, that is the reality for Slovakian amateur team TJ Tatran Čierny Balog, who play their games next to a railway track that regularly has trains making its way past the ground – even during matches.
A video uploaded onto social media by a fan attending a game involving the Slovakian team shows just how focused players must be as a steam train travels along the length of the pitch during a match while spectators sitting in stands just in front of the track watch on.
Aside from the fact that a train goes right past the ground, the noise made by the engine coupled with the steam emitted from the train prove to be the ultimate distraction for players – although supporters certainly seem to enjoy the show with many taking pictures and indeed videos of the unusual scene.
So would you like to model a railway, albeit a small narrow-gauge line BETWEEN the football pitch and the spectators in the stand. I guess it wouldn’t really work for 4 track N-mod though – the bullet trains would affect play!
