In Luxembourg, this railroad line is called the “North Line” or “Linn Lëtzebuerg - Ettelbréck - Elwen - Belsch Grenz” (“Ligne Luxembourg - Ettelbruck - Troisvierges - Frontière Belge). The Luxembourgian miniature world consists of an electrified, double-track main line. In addition, there is a switch between both tracks to allow track changes. Furthermore, there are first-class modelled trees and bushes, a level crossing and a large cornfield. Finally, the rolling stock has been weathered. All in all, Pit Karges has hidden so many details on his train layout that you have to look twice or three times to explore everything.

The absolutely amazing model railroad layout “Le Bassin”, created by model builders Wieger Pasman and Floris Dilz in HO scale, depicts the Liège steel industry in Belgium. In the 1980’s the steel industry was to change completely because many parts of the steelworks were shut down. A mystical atmosphere emerged and the steelworks seemed like a patchwork of active and abandoned industrial buildings. This atmosphere fascinated model railway enthusiasts Wieger Pasman and Floris Dilz so much that they decided to build a model rail layout illustrating the industrial buildings in the inner cities of Seraing and Ougrée.

The miniature world in HO scale represents a section of the former tramway between Drachten and Groningen in the Netherlands.

Steef van der Straeten, Danielle van Wingerden and Gerda Hoogerwerf (“Stedahult”) have modelled a famous Danish local railway, namely the Odsherredsbanen, in miniature. The unique beauty, the variety of colours and the perfect craftsmanship in model making give the model railway layout a special look.

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.
