This is № 503 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. Sometimes it is unbelievable what masterpieces of art are created in model railroading. If model railroad layouts look like a work of art, then these miniature worlds definitely need to be presented on Pilentum Television. However, have you ever heard of the Maeklong Railway Market in Thailand or the Ga Long Bien Railway Station in Vietnam? In this video, we discover an Asian model train diorama that features scratch building, weathering and lovely details. Overloaded trucks, funny transport vehicles, loving details and the rickety streetcar perfectly complete the Asian diorama.

Model Railroad Diorama of Cuba - Scratch Building and Railway Modelling at its Best - On30 Layouts

This is № 500 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. At the great model railway exhibition named On TraXS 2022 in the Netherlands, Samuel de Zutter and Valentijn van der Haegen presented their detailed On30 model train diorama that takes the viewer to Cuba. You have to look twice or three times closely to discover the many small details on the model railway layout. Of course, it should not go unmentioned that Samuel and Valentijn are true experts in scratch building, i.e. they do not use prefabricated parts or kits. They are experts of building scale models from scratch, i.e. from raw materials, rather than building it from a commercial kit, kitbashing or buying it pre-assembled. Therefore, the small their O scale diorama, which has been given the name “Cubana”, is a testimony to a lot of tinkering and creativity.

Therefore, there are many model railroading enthusiasts who recreate that romantic era. The rail diorama we see in this video follows this railway modelling philosophy and depicts a small station in Germany where a lot of freight traffic is handled.
