That’s a model train layout of superlatives. In this film you can see one of the most beautiful and one of the largest model railroad layouts in 1 scale or 1 gauge. On this beautiful model railway layout there are two train stations, a large locomotive shed, a small mountain railway and a narrow-gauge railway. Cab rides were made on the main line and on the narrow-gauge railway line. By the way, the construction of this model railway layout took almost twelve years. While many loving details along the railroad tell little stories, numerous locomotives, train sets, passenger trains and steam engines are to be seen on the layout. There are more than 150 photographs of this unique model railway layout at http://www.pilentum.de.

If you know about the European railway modelling scene, then you have probably heard of Ivo Schraepen. He is a very famous rail transport modeller from Belgium, who specializes in the construction of very large model railway layouts in HO scale. He is present at every big model railway exhibition in Europe, and presents his exceptionally beautiful railroad layouts. One of his great layouts is called “Kempenland”. It is a double-sided layout of more than 20 square meters of model landscape. Double-sided means, visitors can view the miniature world from both the front and the back. On the front, there is a large Belgian main station with a lot of railway traffic, and on the back, there is a rural region, partly with industrial buildings and with a railway depot. Ivo Schraepen’s layout was built in 2008 but has been thoroughly modernized. After ten years a lot has changed, for [More]
In this video I show how I create some of my realistic model railroad scenery. Painting and weathering flex track with inexpensive and budget supplies are the focus of this video. With a little – much needed humor, I show just how easy it is to create believable and realistic weathering effects for track. The entire sum of the products I use in this video do not even add up to the cost of a single piece of “O” gauge flex track. Just think, the supplies would be enough to paint and weather a fairly large layout worth of track.

Hey guys! This is a three part tutorial on how to install and convert your analog proto 2000 locomotive to a DCC locomotive with LED lights installed. I get my lights from Evan designs, they can be purchased from “modeltrainsoftware.com.” The decoders I use are digitrax DN143IP, but a digitrax DH123PS will work just as well if you can get it to fit. The locomotive I use in this video is a walthers proto 2000 RS27. Remember, on proto 2000 locomotives the blue wire goes to the positive lead, and the white wire is the negative. LEDS withOUT capacitors will need to be installed the right way, or it will not work. Wikipedia has a good article for information on that. The led positive lead will be the smaller piece inside the bulb, and the negative is the larger Thanks for watching How to install DCC and LEDs! Recommended ReadingHow [More]
In summer 2019, Pilentum Television, was invited by Hässleholms Modelljärnvägsförening, one of the biggest model railway clubs in Sweden, to produce a video documentary about Sweden’s finest and largest model railroad layout. If you’re asking Swedish model railroaders and railway enthusiast, where to find the largest permanent model railway exhibition in Sweden, they will probably answer, this is the “Modelljärnväg Hässleholm”. By the way, the Swedish word “modelljärnväg” means “model railway” in British English and “model railroad” in American English. In this video, Pilentum Television presents the “Modelljärnväg Hässleholm”, really one of the largest model railroad layouts built in HO scale in Sweden. Actually, this Swedish miniature world covers more than 700 square meters. This Swedish HO scale layout is a historically correct scale model of Hässleholm’s railway station, its locomotive shed and its buildings as they were in the late 1960’s. During the 20th century Hässleholm developed into a [More]
UPDATE: Floquil Paint Markers are now marketed as Testors CreateFX Paint Markers. Same stuff. (For best viewing, watch in 720 HD) How to add realistic weathering to model railroad track. No airbrush or paint brush needed! FYI Rustoleum paint will melt styrofoam like Woodland Scenics risers. I have used it in the past with very minimal effect on the foam board. If you use cork roadbed and don’t spray like a mad man…you will be just fine on foam insulation board.
