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.

This is № 569 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. In this video, we discover a truly brilliant model railroad layout built by Thomas Gallé. The miniature world, which was presented at the model train show called “On traXS 2024” depicts a section of the most important railway connections in Europe, namely the “Maurienne Valley”, one of the great transverse valleys of the Alps.

This is № 568 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. This model train layout is truly unique, as it is probably the only model railroad of the famous Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway RH&DR. The model train layout depicts an original section of the double-tracked line between the level crossing “Boltolph’s Bridge Crossing” and the bridge named “New Cut Sewer” crossing the drainage canal.

Micro Model Railway and Narrow Gauge Steam Trains in a Stone Quarry in HOn30 Scale

This is № 563 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. Narrow gauge field railways held an important role in the industry. Due to their long tradition, industrial railways are a very popular subject for railway modelling or model railroading. Dr. Michael Giersberg is one of those railway modellers or model railroaders who specialized in the reproduction of narrow gauge field railways in East Germany. His model train diorama constructed in HOn30 scale depicts a small village with a quarry in the 1960s.


THE WORLD OF MODEL TRAINS

Pilentum Television, simply abbreviated to “Pilentum”, is probably the largest international video network for model trains and model railroad layouts. Pilentum's video documentaries present the beauty and the uniqueness of miniature worlds around the world.
