This is № 581 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. After almost two years of construction, Alain Kap has completed his model train layout depicting the old Useldange railway station in Luxembourg in the 1960s. The HO scale layout consists of three segments with a total length of 2.70 meters. The small miniature world follows the philosophy of many model railroaders and railway modellers, namely to rebuilt long-gone railroad lines.

This is № 572 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. 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.
