This is № 528 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. 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.

His model railroad layouts are always characterized by two features: On the one hand, he always focuses on the railroad history of Mecklenburg, and on the other hand, his model railway layouts are constructed in museum quality with loving details. As a historian, he has built this model train diorama, which depicts the post-war German Reich Railways.

Usually the focus is on long-forgotten railway lines or on old locomotive sheds (“abandoned premises”), which are exactly modelled on the basis of old postcards and books. The members of the model railroading club “Modelspoorclub Het Spoor” from Sint-Niklaas in Belgium have taken up this challenge and constructed a high-precision replica of the Belgian railway line 127 and Braives railway station.
