It is probably very difficult for a model railroader to build a forest railway, forest tram, timber line, logging railway or logging railroad. In this context, the biggest challenge may be the realistic modelling of the trees, bushes and grasses. Laurent Vandermotte from Belgium has taken up this challenge: At the great model railway exhibition “Modelspoor Expo” he presented his model train diorama depicting a sawmill or lumber mill and a little freight train running on narrow gauges. While watching this model railroad display we recognize, the small steam train is not the focus. On a surface of about 1.0 meter in width and about 0.5 meters in depth there are loving details, for example, the lumberjack, beavers in the river or the night simulation.
