The France Vacation Model Railroad Layout in HO scale - A Masterpiece of Railway Modelling

Some model railway layouts are so authentically built, so we believe that we are in a real world. The model railroad layout, which is called “Saint Tourbière”, is one of these miniature worlds. This masterpiece of model railroading was constructed by Wim Wijnhoud, a railway modeller from the Netherlands. During discovering this model landscape in HO scale, it feels like we are on holiday in France. This beautiful layout takes 10.5 meters in length and 2.5 meters in width. The landscape is based on a single-track railway line through the Cévennes - a range of mountains in south-central France. The village of Saint Tourbière is a picturesque town, with an old church and with a nice market square. On the market square, there are some bars, restaurants and shops. Down in the valley, the railway station of Saint Tourbière is located. The station has two platforms, a freight yard and a small locomotive depot including a turntable. Model trains arriving and departing at the station, which is located between the mountains, have to cross bridges, tunnels and viaducts.
