This superb model railway layout was built by Rudi Nelissen. The layout is called “La Roche-en-Ardenne” (Porphyry Quarry), and depicts the beautiful landscape of La Roche-en-Ardenne, a Walloon municipality of Belgium located in the Ardennes. The rolling stock in HO scale consists of tram engines (steam dummy or dummy engine), steam tramways and steam locomotives, which were used for transportation in Belgium in the last century.
Furthermore, Rudi Nelissen built a porphyry quarry on the right side of the model railway layout, where the typical cobblestones in the Ardennes were produced. There are several steam-cranes that were used in the quarries at that time. These cranes are self-built in brass and are fully functional. Apart from that, it's a beautiful landscape modeling.
