One of the most beautiful and realistic East German model railroad layouts with steam locomotives

This is № 567 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. This beautiful model train layout in 1/87 scale is a historically accurate replica of the Royal Saxon State Railways. The period of East German railway traffic offers a rich repertoire for model railroading. This is why Jens Petermann started building the station of Jahnsbach with his team called “Bimmlbahner” in 2013. The rolling stock has been weathered and modified exactly according to old photos.

This is № 564 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. After World War II, rail transport in East Germany was characterised by steam trains and steam locomotives operated by the Deutsche Reichsbahn. In rural regions, especially in the state of Saxony, narrow gauge steam engines were in use, for example on the “Pressnitz Valley Railway”.

This is № 561 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. For over 40 years, rail transport in East Germany was characterised by trains operated by the Deutsche Reichsbahn. In rural regions in particular, there were narrow-gauge railways and small branch lines that were operated exclusively with steam locomotives. This period of East German railway traffic offers a rich repertoire for railway modelling. Franz Rittig is a well-known railway modeller who depicts the railway infrastructure of the North German region Mecklenburg in his model railways. His latest model railway in 1/87 scale consists of two dioramas on an area of 2.7 m x 0.4 m x 0.5 m depicting the train station of Friedrichsruhe and Alt Warnow.

This is № 547 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. The two model railway enthusiast Jens Petermann and Jochen Klinger wanted to show the special feature of the different gauge of the Pressnitz Valley Railway on their model railway layout. Therefore, they rebuilt the station of the community of Steinbach on two 1.25 x 0.6 meter railway modules in order to depict the historical railroad operations.

This is № 538 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. This is Arnold’s Märklin model railway layout in 1 gauge (1/32 scale). In his house, near The Hague in the Netherlands, Arnold has completely converted a large room into a miniature world for his model trains. The 1 gauge layout has a size of 12.5 x 5.5 meters.

German Model Railroad Operations – Modular Model Train HO Scale Layout

This is № 528 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. Pilentum has been invited by the German model railroading club, called “Eisenbahnfreunde Sinntalbahn”, to film the member’s very large modular model railroad layout in 1/87 scale. We see a variety of German locomotives, including diesel and steam locomotives, as well as German train sets, including railcars and goods trains.

This is № 523 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. In Budapest, the capital of Hungary, there is a small model railway shop that has built a pretty nice model rail layout in HO scale for the presentation of new model trains and scale models. But very often the model railroad layout is used for playing with steam locomotives and enjoying railway operating sessions.

N scale model train layout with Magnorail miniature cars and locomotives by Arnold and Hobbytrain

This is № 518 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. Due to the main railway line, overhead lines, marshalling yard, fiddle yard, weathering on buildings and rolling stock, as well as an ingenious miniature car system based on Magnorail, Vincent Scholtze and Frodo Weidema have designed a superb model railroad layout in N scale on which steam locomotives, diesel locomotives and electric locomotives from Arnold and Hobbytrain run.


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.
