Basically, there are two ways to build a model railway: On the one hand, some modelers are building a large model train layout to operate their own railroad in miniature; on the other hand, members of model train clubs build modules, which are sections of layouts, and can be joined together to form a larger layout, for meetings or for special occasions, like a model train show. In Germany, there are many model railroaders, model clubs and model groups, building modules in HO scale. Pilentum was visiting a major event: A big model train show organized by three modeling clubs. There are more than 200 meters of railroad track in HO gauge and more than 100 model trains. Furthermore, there are modules with stations, with self-driving micro cars and with beautiful landscapes. One highlight of this big model train show is the funny nudist resort.
Actually, there are more than 250 videos about model railroading and railway modelling, for example, on Dailymotion and YouTube. Please, visit also Pilentum's Facebook site.
