Pottendorf was inspired by the Bayerische Lokalbahn, a network of small branchlines which once comprised of half of the route mileage in Bayern. The available space is rather small for 1:45 but the prototype was a not a railway built on the grand scale, most stations are merely a curved loop and a siding which is easy to replicate even in O gauge.

It is eminently do-able.
Just three metres long including fiddle yard and effectively three turnouts, the plan uses the many of the buildings that are used on Pottendorf. The rolling stock has to be small, again, this suits my rolling stock of BR98's and a VT70.
