In France, there is a model railroader club, called “Club de Modelisme de Draveil”. The members are best known for their modular model railway layouts. Often they are going to present their model train layout at model train shows. The latest layout is called “Saint Libéral” presenting a French village in the 1950’s. The rail tracks and points are made by Peco Company. Most of the rolling stock is taken from various toy train and railroad manufacturers. The outstanding element of this French model railway layout is the market place. It is one of the most impressive features of the whole layout because there is a rotating panel for three different days. On Wednesday there is a market, on Fridays there is a circus, and on Sundays there are kids playing soccer. And, there is a helicopter landing.
