Once the world's largest modular model railway layout in HO scale

This is a very special video that was stored on old VHS tapes in the archive of Pilentum. In 1995, the world's largest modular model railway layout was presented near Frankfurt, Germany. Even then, there were small cars driving independently and automatically on the streets. This system is that what we know today as the Faller Car System. The model trains were partly still controlled in analogue operating mode, but in some sections even a digital signal box was used. Unfortunately, this video was recorded in 4/3 aspect ratio. Pilentum scaled it up to 16/9 aspect ratio.

Model Railroads and Trains

Model trains und model railroading are a wonderful hobby. Unfortunately, the prices for locomotives, freight cars and passenger cars are becoming more and more expensive. Therefore, many people look for auctions on the Internet to buy rolling stock, parts and accessories cheaply. That's exactly what I do, but I use special filters to find the best deals. On auctions on eBay, I always check the number of bids. Only auctions with the highest number of bids give the feeling that it is a good deal. Why don't you give it a try?

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.
