Model Train Paradise for Steam Locomotive - Arnold’s Märklin Model Railroad in Gauge 1 (1:32 Scale)

This is № 522 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. Model train layouts in 1 gauge (1/32 scale) are always something special. The dimensions of the locomotives and the noises are a great adventure. Therefore, in this video we discover an amazing Märklin model railroad layout that was built by Arnold who lives in the Netherlands. Arnold loves model railroading and he loves watching his steam locos circulating on his gauge 1 layout which has a size of 12.5 x 5.5 meters.

Model Railroad Diorama of Cuba - Scratch Building and Railway Modelling at its Best - On30 Layouts

This is № 500 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. At the great model railway exhibition named On TraXS 2022 in the Netherlands, Samuel de Zutter and Valentijn van der Haegen presented their detailed On30 model train diorama that takes the viewer to Cuba. You have to look twice or three times closely to discover the many small details on the model railway layout. Of course, it should not go unmentioned that Samuel and Valentijn are true experts in scratch building, i.e. they do not use prefabricated parts or kits. They are experts of building scale models from scratch, i.e. from raw materials, rather than building it from a commercial kit, kitbashing or buying it pre-assembled. Therefore, the small their O scale diorama, which has been given the name “Cubana”, is a testimony to a lot of tinkering and creativity.

This is № 499 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. Model railroad operations with steam locomotives and heavy diesel engines always exude a special fascination. That fascination becomes even greater when we hear the steam locomotive sound and when we see the smoke rising from the chimney or smokestack. Near a railway depot on the model railway layout of a German model building club, Pilentum filmed some great scale models.

Steam Locomotive and Diesel Model Trains on an O Scale Layout - Rail Transport Modeling in Germany

This is № 492 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. Rail transport modeling in Germany is closely associated with those steam locomotives and diesel locos of the former state railroad (German Federal Railway) from the 1960's. Therefore, there are many model railroading enthusiasts who recreate that romantic era. The rail diorama we see in this video follows this railway modelling philosophy and depicts a small station in Germany where a lot of freight traffic is handled.
