Model railway layout of 500 square meter in HO scale

In Germany, there is a permanent model railroad exhibit showing the largest model train layout about Thuringia in HO scale. The exhibiton area takes 500 square meters, approximately 50 meters in length and 10 meters in width. The goal was to represent the rail traffic service inside the region between Eisenach, Erfurt and Weimar in Germany.

In addition to the model trains, also the most sights of this region are shown, for example, the Wartburg, the significant monument of German history, or the Kyffhäuser monument. There is also the depot Meiningen, known as Germany's best workshop for steam locomotives. Finally, there are 120 model trains, locomotives and over 1,000 coaches.

Model Railroads and Trains

Model trains und model railroading are a wonderful hobby. Unfortunately, the prices for locomotives, freight cars and passenger cars are becoming more and more expensive. Therefore, many people look for auctions on the Internet to buy rolling stock, parts and accessories cheaply. That's exactly what I do, but I use special filters to find the best deals. On auctions on eBay, I always check the number of bids. Only auctions with the highest number of bids give the feeling that it is a good deal. Why don't you give it a try?
