The watching station on the Montrac line

Inaugurated on 27 June 2009, the new Road Transport Hall of the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne is equipped with a Montrac system handling the presentation of 3000 Matchbox cars.

The idea to present the Matchbox cars with a Montrac system was conceived and developed by the museum in cooperation with Montech.
40 shuttle run along 36 meters of monorail track, carrying 3000 miniature models from all categories and times. The Montrac system is built on three levels for a total height of four meters and hangs from the hall ceiling. Via a touchscreen display, visitors can retrieve a showcase to take a close look at the Matchbox cars at two rotating stations. A lift takes the shuttle with the requested showcase down to the visitor’s watching level.

Interactive miniature warehouse
Used in the museum as a sort of miniature warehouse, Montrac provides for a spectacular presentation of a huge portion of one of the richest and most complete Matchbox collections in Europe to a wide audience.
