Trains and Trucks: Car System Cab Ride (FPV) on the Streets of a Model Railway Layout

Apart from the fully automatic, digitally controlled train traffic on model railway layouts, one special phenomenon has emerged in the last years, namely a miniature car system for N scale, HO scale, OO scale and TT scale layouts. Every model builder knows these amazing scale model vehicles, which automatically drive on miniature roads. Therefore, we leave the train in this video and get into a mini car.

We are going to discover a first person view video or cab ride video from the perspective of a truck driver. By the way, very simple car systems are based on the fact that a steering grinder at the front wheel axle follows a magnetic wire that has been installed under the road. A small motor is installed on the rear axle, which is powered by a rechargeable battery. Advanced car systems are characterized by infrared sensors, light decoders and sound decoders inside the vehicles.

In addition, those vehicles can be precisely controlled via DCC. Very popular miniature vehicle systems are the “Faller Car System” or the “DC Car System”. The camera, used in this video, is the new “RunCam 5”, a superb cube camera (dimension: 38 x 38 x 36 mm or 1.49 x 1.49 x 1.42 inches) suitable for rail transport modeling, model railroading and railway modelling.
