One of the nearly realistic French model railroad layouts - HO scale model trains of SNCF in France

This magnificent HO scale train layout was built by the members of the Club Ferroviaire de Franche-Comté (CFFC) and depicts the train station of La Praz (“Gare de la Praz”) located at the “Culoz-Modane Railway”, sometimes called “Ligne de la Maurienne”. In 1925 the railway was electrified with 1.5 kV DC, using a third rail. In 1976 the third rail was replaced by an overhead wire. This is why we see electric locomotives that run without pantographs. Furthermore, train traffic concerns exclusively the period from 1956 to 1973.

This is № 570 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. Although Carlo Spada lives in Italy, he likes American railroads and trains, especially powerful steam locomotives and diesel-electric locomotives. In 2014, Carlo began building his model train layout in HO scale. His miniature world in 1/87 scale covers an area of 9.0 x 4.5 meters and depicts areas of the United States that are particularly close to his heart, such as Arizona, California and Colorado.

In Budapest, the capital of Hungary, there is a small model railway shop that has built a pretty nice model rail layout in HO scale for the presentation of new model trains and scale models. But very often the model railroad layout is used for playing with steam locomotives and enjoying railway operating sessions.
