In this rail transport modeling video made by Pilentum, we discover a large and fully operating model railroad layout consisting of many modules in HO scale. Over the last two decades, the members of a German model railroader club have constructed one of the largest, transportable modular layouts, on which mainly model trains of the German and Austrian railroads run. Trains run in two-rail or three-rail operation as required and are operated by Digital Command Control.
A total of 168 individual modules are currently available, whereby these layout modules can be individually configured to form a large setup in 1/87 scale (H0). The modules, portable sections of table type structures, are built specifically for use interfacing with others in a large setup. All are built to a set of standards that allow each unit to interface exactly with other units anywhere in the overall system which result in a maximum track length of over 1,200 meters.
