AW20 desktop elements

The AW20 subassemblies are the external elements of the desktop on which the layout of the tracks, signals and traction is placed. Thanks to the presence of transparent lenses in the symbols of tracks and signalling devices, under which different-coloured prisms can be placed, the desktop provides an optical visualization of the current track layout within the operated circle and the signalling devices located on it.
