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.

In recent years, the Polish model railway club “Polska Makieta Modułowa H0 - Grupa Modelarska” and its members have surprised visitors at international model railway exhibitions with extremely detailed and lovingly designed HO scale model train layouts. A member of the club, Leszek Lewiński, presents a Polish narrow-gauge model rail diorama in museum quality. His model railroad layout is called “Over the Roofs of Kwidzyn” (“Nad dachami Kwidzyna”).

Robert Strachan, a model railway enthusiast from the United Kingdom, has built his model train diorama on an area of 5 feet 8 inches by 13 inches, approximately 180 cm x 30 cm. The model rail layout is a shelf layout respectively a small shunting model railroad layout or switching model railway layout.

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.
