Welcome to Pilentum's world of model trains for model railroaders in New Zealand
It all started many years ago in Germany, when the author Markus Lenz was trying to make photos and videos of detailled objects in macro photography mode. And over time, a preference had arisen to visit model railway exhibitions for making documentary films. So the project's name Pilentum was born, because this word comes from the Latin language and it means something like waggon or coach. Thus it sounds more interesting, the name "Pilentum Television" was choosen for this project.
Today, Pilentum Television is specialised in making documentary films about the beautiful world of model trains, model railways and model railroads. These documentary films are not for commercial use. At any time, you can watch them on YouTube, for free. On Pilentum's website, there are describtions of more than 230 videos about model train layouts in all scales or gauges, for example Z scale, N scale, TT scale, HO scale, OO scale, G scale, O scale, 1 Gauge and live steam model railways.
