His beautiful model train layout is called “Neupreussen Main Station” and measures about 2.60 x 1.95 meters. Because “Neupreussen Main Station” is supposed to be located in the border area between Germany and Austria, we see model locomotives and model trains of different railway companies. These model trains are made by the manufacturers Piko and Roco.
In this video, we discover one of these model rail layouts in TT scale that depicts the East German Railways. The layout was specially constructed for exhibitions and consists of two sections visible to the audience. Both sections are arranged as a double shelf layout.

Therefore, Rob de Vleeschhouwer and Wim Wijnhoud have modelled the railway infrastructure between the Swiss and German border. The model railway layout is called “Court du Bouton” and depicts the rail traffic of trains used by the German state railroads (DB) and the Swiss state railways (SBB).

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.
