In Germany, these self-controlled model cars are very famous. They are called Faller Car System or Infracar or Digital Controlled Car System or simply DC Car. Normally, these cars are made for model railroad layouts in HO scale. But these model cars are built in N Scale (1:160) or N Gauge.
These model cars are an enrichment or asset to any model train layout. A battery, headlights and the entire (digital) control system is installed into the model car. And, a metal strip is installed invisible beneath the road. The metal strip dictates the possible ways. But the model car is driving autonomous; there is no radio remote control.
Let's discover the world of model trains. Pilentum Television is one of the leading video networks for toy trains, model railroading and railway modelling. Pilentum presents the largest model railroad layouts and the finest model railway displays. Actually, there are more than 280 videos about rail transport modelling on YouTube and Dailymotion.
Furthermore, there a reports and documentaries about the great model railway exhibitions known from railfan and railroad magazines. Pilentum's movies include steam locomotives, high-speed trains, cab rides, electric locomotives as well as diesel locos, for example, in HO scale or H0 gauge and also in N Scale or in 00 gauge.
