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.

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.

Tinplate Trains in O Scale and Tin Plate Toys by Marklin

This is № 049 of Pilentum's model railroad videos. These tin plate trains were built in 1925. There are some typical metal toys or so-called tinplate toys, for example, a train station, a bridge and a fun park with carousel. In the years 1893 to 1954 toy trains were made of tinplate by Märklin. But even after a century, these tinplate trains never lose their charm and beauty.
