    PILENTUM



    Published on Nov 25, 2017
    As you know, Pilentum is fascinated by doing cab ride videos with model trains. Therefore, in this video, a new model railroad layout is presented. It was built by a German railway club in HO scale. A special feature is the big hidden railway station and its parking trains and locomotives. Please, enjoy becoming a train driver in miniature. Visit http://www.pilentum.de, and thanks for watching.

    Wonderful US model railroad layout in HO scale with landscape in winter
    PILENTUM



    Published on Nov 25, 2017
    This model train layout in HO scale was built by German modellers from Cologne. There are three different landscapes covering the whole model railway layout. And, there are a lot of North American locomotives and freight trains, including Amtrak or CSX, etc. The model railroad layout was carefully designed with a beautiful snow cover. Enjoy http://www.pilentum.de and thanks for watching.

    Model Trains and Model Railroading in former East Germany
    PILENTUM



    Published on Nov 30, 2017
    After the Second World War, the world separated into East and West. So, also Germany was divided into West Germany and East Germany. Therefore in West Germany, typical types of locomotives and trains were developed by the German Federal Railways (Deutsche Bundesbahn). And, also in East Germany special designs and types of locomotives and trains were developed by the state railway of East Germany (Deutsche Reichsbahn). In this video, Pilentum presents a model railroad layout, where steam trains and diesel trains of the old state railway of the GDR are running. Noteworthy are the powerful diesel locomotives that were originally delivered from the Soviet Union to East Germany for freight traffic. And, there are the famous bilevel passenger cars, also known as double-decker train cars, which are still used in passenger traffic today. Enjoy http://www.pilentum.de and thanks for watching.

    HO Scale Model Railroad Layout made by a German Model Railroader Club
    PILENTUM



    Published on Dec 7, 2017
    In this video, Pilentum presents a model railroad layout that was made by a German model railroader club in HO scale. This model railroad layout follows a mixture of two philosophies in railway modelling: On the one hand, there are permanently installed railway segments, and on the other hand, there are replaceable railway modules. Finally, the model railroad display is so large that it extends over several rooms.

    In the first room, there is a huge hidden staging yard. From there, the model trains drive through two tunnels through the wall into the main room. Locomotives and trains drive along the main railway line, crossing a little station and reaching a huge railway bridge. Behind this railway bridge a large mountain rises above the landscape. In the valley, behind the mountain, the railway line is divided in two directions: The one railway line leads to the new central station which is still under construction. The other railway line leads through tunnels into the next room.

    In this room, the railway embankment was installed along the wall. While locomotives and trains drive on the railway embankment, below a large lake followed by a funfair, a restaurant and a medium-heavy fire brigade are presented. Inside the restaurant, take a look at the waiter who takes care of the guests without getting tired. Behind the fun park, the fire brigade has to extinguish a burning truck.

    Besides that, the model trains reach the next room. Here, the railway line was built under a mountain. On the top of the mountain, there is a large park with a children's playground. Down in the valley, near the railway line, crazy hippies are going to have a party when they are not stuck with their VW Bully in the mud. Please, enjoy http://www.pilentum.de, and thanks for watching.

    Large Model Railroad RR HO H.O. Scale Gauge Train Layout @ Chicago Park District awesome trains
    Lou Costabile



    Published on Dec 16, 2017
    In Chicago on 12-15-17, I’m sharing the Garfield Clarendon Model Railroad Club that is celebrating their 70th year anniversary.

    Today I’m speaking with President of the Club Dan Gould as he shares details of the layout.

    Every area on the layout is complete. The engines, cars, scenery on the layout are of the highest quality, and many items are custom and hand built.

    This is just a wonderful experience to view.

    The Garfield-Clarenden Model RR Club Operations is located at 4501 N Clarendon Ave, Chicago, IL 60640 and for further details go to www.garfieldcentral.org

    Excellent Model Railroad Layout in HO Scale
    PILENTUM



    Published on Dec 15, 2017
    In this video, Pilentum presents a German model railroad exhibit that is located in Bavaria. But, do not expect any Bavarian locomotives and model trains. Inside this model train show, a slightly different philosophy of railway modelling exists because the operator of this model railroad layout wants to represent the complete development of railway history in Germany. Therefore, for each time period a railway display was built in HO scale.

    Actually, there are five very large railway displays presenting Germany’s rail transport history. For example, there are the very first steam locomotives and steam trains of the German Empire since 1870. Also, there is another railway display presenting the first electric locomotives and diesel locomotives in the 1920s and 1930s. The whole development of Germany’s State Railway Company is shown up to the modern times with high-speed trains.

    Apart of this philosophy of model railroading, the correct speed in relation to the HO scale is remarkable. At this model railroad layout toy trains are driving only with 80 % of the maximum speed which the trains would drive in reality. In addition, most locomotives were converted with new engines and gear sets from the famous Faulhaber Company. Faulhaber’s special engines and fine gear boxes ensure the most accurate movements of model trains with very realistic start-up and braking.

    And, there is another special feature. Normally, model railway exhibitions are using digital train control systems, for example computers with special programs. But these five model railway displays are controlled by analogue technology. There are no computers and there are no digital components. The entire model trains are controlled by the analogue system made by Gebhardt Company. Gebhardt’s system is based on block circuits controlled by electrical relays. While watching Pilentum’s video, you will not recognize this electrical technology, but you can sometimes hear when relays are switched. Please, enjoy this excellent model railroad layout and hundred famous model trains. Thanks for watching and take a look at http://www.pilentum.de or http://www.pilentum.org
