Model Railroad Mania - Hobby Model Expo - Novegro 2018 #1
The only way of catching a train I have ever discovered is to miss the train before - G.K. Chesterton
As some of you may know, I am a fan of model railroads.
It doesn't matter what kind of model trains: steam, electric, diesel locomotives from all over the world get my attention and enthusiasm. However, I don't like to keep them in a display case. I love to see them in action on a layout. It can be the simplest of the layouts or the more elaborate one, it doesn't matter and although I like very detailed modern models, I have a serious crush for old models of the '60s and '70s even if they are more "toys" than "models".
Every year in Novegro, near Milan, an interesting Expo takes place at the end of September.
It is called Hobby Model Expo and this year it was the 42nd edition.
Many Italian and international expositors were in Novegro. Acme, Almrose, P.I.R.A.T.A., Lima, Rivarossi, Märklin, Os.kar, Vitrains all participated, among the others.
This is a short video about one of the many layouts shown during the expo. It is an Italian theme layout with H0 scale (1:87) material.
In particular, we can see here a Frecciarossa train with 13 units and a long automobile transport train. Hope you enjoy it!
