This model train video is about a large private model railroad layout in Germany. On the contrary to many other miniature worlds, which are presented on Pilentum’s YouTube Channel, this layout is a historically correct scale model of the “Spessart Ramp”. The “Spessart” is a range of low wooded mountains in Germany. The highest elevation is at approximately 600 meters above ground. So the “Spessart Ramp” is a railroad line with one end higher than the other.
Steam trains (鉄道模型) and steam locomotives (蒸気機関車) are a rare sight in the 21st Century, but as scale models (縮尺模型) they are far from extinct. Come along for a look at several steam trains running in Germany.
In this model train video the camera is installed in the near of the railroad tracks. We see German trains running with pantographs (current collectors) on the overhead line (catenary). The trains are made in 1/87 scale.
François Joyau built a superb model railway layout of the railway lines around Paris. This rail infrastructure was called “La Petite Ceinture”. However, he called his H0 gauge layout “57 bis Rue Eiffefe”. He reproduced a more urban atmosphere with buildings inspired by real places.
We are going to discover another example of rail transport modeling in Europe in this model train video, made at the famous model railroad exhibit “Modelljärnväg Hässleholm” in Sweden. The model railroad museum presents a large HO scale layout on an area of more than 700 square meters.
At the great Warley Model Railway Show, Paul Butler presented his superb model train layout built in N scale or N gauge.
