This is № 567 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. This beautiful model train layout in 1/87 scale is a historically accurate replica of the Royal Saxon State Railways. The period of East German railway traffic offers a rich repertoire for model railroading. This is why Jens Petermann started building the station of Jahnsbach with his team called “Bimmlbahner” in 2013. The rolling stock has been weathered and modified exactly according to old photos.

In rural regions, especially in the state of Saxony, narrow gauge steam engines were in use, for example on the “Pressnitz Valley Railway”.
This is № 561 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. For over 40 years, rail transport in East Germany was characterised by trains operated by the Deutsche Reichsbahn. In rural regions in particular, there were narrow-gauge railways and small branch lines that were operated exclusively with steam locomotives. This period of East German railway traffic offers a rich repertoire for railway modelling. Franz Rittig is a well-known railway modeller who depicts the railway infrastructure of the North German region Mecklenburg in his model railways. His latest model railway in 1/87 scale consists of two dioramas on an area of 2.7 m x 0.4 m x 0.5 m depicting the train station of Friedrichsruhe and Alt Warnow.

The two model railway enthusiast Jens Petermann and Jochen Klinger wanted to show the special feature of the different gauge of the Pressnitz Valley Railway on their model railway layout. Therefore, they rebuilt the station of the community of Steinbach on two 1.25 x 0.6 meter railway modules in order to depict the historical railroad operations.

Pilentum has been invited by the German model railroading club, called “Eisenbahnfreunde Sinntalbahn”, to film the member’s very large modular model railroad layout in 1/87 scale. We see a variety of German locomotives, including diesel and steam locomotives, as well as German train sets, including railcars and goods trains.

Jochen Klinger and Jens Petermann were so fascinated by the history of this bridge that they decided to rebuilt the bridge in 1/87 scale.
