Train Driver's View: Model Train Cab Ride on French Narrow Gauge Model Railroad Layout Mini World Lyon

This is № 559 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. The beautiful model railroad exhibition Mini World Lyon also features rail traffic between the border of France and Switzerland. In this border region, small narrow-gauge trains are mainly used to transport passengers and freight between small towns and villages in the Alps. The landscape design on the model train layout in 1/87 scale is overwhelming because narrow-gauge railways have to climb high mountains and pass through deep valleys.

One of the most authentic model railroads of an East German chemical plant with industrial railways

This is № 554 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. Olaf Brabandt is a German model railroader who builds run-down, abandoned and dirty industrial sites, for example steelworks, coal plants, refineries and chemical plants. In the last seven years, he built a model railroad layout in HO scale representing a part of the typical large-scale industry of the former GDR. It is an industrial yard built with a high level of detail: Patina, dirt, dust and grime are everywhere. Buildings, locomotives and freight cars are also carefully weathered.

Beautiful Model Railway Layout with HO Scale Model Trains of Luxembourgian Rail Transport by Pit Karges

This is № 541 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. Pit Karges built a model train layout in HO scale (1/87) of a famous Luxembourgian railway line. 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.
