This is № 562 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. Model railroads are particularly impressive when you can explore them from the driver's eye view. Let's go for a cab ride on one of America’s greatest model train layouts in HO scale. During this model train journey we discover the amazing “Penn Falls Railroad” that is maintained by the members of the Chelten Hills Model Railroad Club in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, United States.
This is № 550 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. We discover the largest model train layout of France, namely the beautiful miniature world called “Mini World Lyon”. Mini World Lyon was opened in 2016. The model railway layout has been built in 1/87 scale and is divided into three sections: City Life (“Ville”), Country Life (“Campagne”) and Mountain World (“Montagne”). These three magnificent model railroad layouts consist of over 1,000 buildings, 40,000 model trees, 6,000 vehicles, of which about 200 automatically drive around on the model roads and streets, 150 model trains, and two kilometers of HO scale track. More than 30,000 LED and over 200 kilometers of electric cables provide a dreamlike day and night illumination. Just as Miniatur Wunderland in Germany is the biggest tourist attraction in the city of Hamburg, Mini World Lyon is growing to become one of the biggest tourist attractions in France.
