The new model train show in Germany | Page No. 1
This model railway layout was opened in the year 2014 and it is one of the largest layouts by Marklin. The model train layout presents a journey from Germany’s Ruhr Valley with its steel and coal industry to Italy. At the beginning of the exhibition the Ruhr Valley is presented before the days of heavy industry. Then there is one of the first scenes showing the coal loading in a port in the 1960s. At that time the coal was first stored and later loaded onto ships. Behind that scene a replica of a typical mine in the Ruhr Valley follows. This model of the mine is presenting all technical details. Next to the coal and steel industry, the so-called Rhine Route is presented. This is a part of the freight and passenger traffic, which leads from the Ruhr Valley to other regions. Many trains and a fairground are presented. At the fairground more than 20,000 LED have been installed. Right next to the fairground there are a town, two model cyclist and a castle. There is also a great central station, where various passenger trains and freight trains meet each other. Far behind the central station the large car factory is located. The finished vehicles are then shipped via car transport trains to the Alps. The Alps are a further focus of very large total model railway layout. Finally, the car transport trains reach their destination Italy; shown is the region around Venice with the typical landscape, designed uniquely beautiful with Italian locomotives and cars.
