In this video Pilentum Television presents a German model railway layout, which contains so many beautiful details that you can’t believe your eyes. Although the HO gauge model trains, especially the electric locomotives run with pantographs up, they fade into the background when you see the extraordinary beauty of the model railroad scenery. There are such beautiful buildings with incredibly detailed interiors for example the workshop for tractors, the locomotive shed, the old gas station or the farm that you think you are in a real world. But it’s just a miniature world built by a German manufactory for professional model railroading in 1/87 scale.
The focus of this HO scale layout is a double-tracked, electrified main line with a branching local railroad. In terms of time, the miniature world is set in Era III on an area of about 380 cm x 270 cm.
On the layout are mainly train sets in operation that were used by the German Federal Railways between the 1960’s and 1980’s. It goes without saying that the model trains have also been weathered perfectly. They look old, rusty and used. The main line is spanned by a large, rusted steel bridge, over which runs the branch line leading to the station. The station is located in the small village of Lindental. Therefore, the name of the entire model railway layout is also Lindental. Lindental is a fictional village in Bavaria. The village only exists in this miniature world.
Steam trains arrive at the railway station and rail buses depart. Next to the station there is a freight loading station and a small locomotive shed for maintenance work. This locomotive shed is completely furnished – it’s amazing! The model railway layout was built for a customer who is a Märklin fan. Therefore, we unfortunately have to see the ugly three rail track. But Markus from Pilentum Television often made such camera slides that the tracks are not visible. Underneath the layout are four hidden fiddle yards where trains for the main line and branch line are parked. The entire rail network is controlled digitally via the PC software “Train Controller”.
