This modular model train layout was built by Vincenzo Bologna from Italy. Pilentum met him at the great model railway exhibition in Cologne, Germany. Vincenzo and his friends, called VBF Group Ferrara-Venturina, were building a small corner of the Tuscan coast in Italy in HO scale. There are the Follonica railway station, the electrical substation at Campiglia Marittima, and the San Vincenzo railway station, all located along the coastline opposite the island of Elba.
The whole model railway layout has got a length of 18.5 meters and a width of 2.40 meters. This was large enough to make a cab ride along the Italian landscape. By the way, Vincenzo Bologna Ferromodellista constructed 6 buildings using plywood, cardboard and biscuit cartons in order to build a realistic replica. In total, 72 catenary masts were made out of little brass tubes. Please, enjoy this cab ride from San Vincenzo to Follonica.
