The Magic of Backscenes for Model Railways: Narrow-gauge Railway in Salzburg in Austria

The Magic of Backscenes for Model Railways: Narrow-gauge Railway in Salzburg in Austria

Actually, it is just a narrow-gauge model railway layout built in H0 gauge by a group of German railway modellers. But that certain something of this layout is highlighted by the amazing high quality backscene or photo wall paper. Therefore, Pilentum named this video “The Magic of Backscenes for Model Trains”.

However, in this this video we are going to discover a superb scale model of the famous “Pinzgauer Lokalbahn”, formerly known as “Pinzgaubahn” or “Krimmler Bahn”, a narrow-gauge railway in Salzburg in Austria. This nearly 50 kilometer railway line crosses the Pinzgau mountains through a breathtaking landscape. Although Steffen Pohl, Michael Geifes und Rainer Dargel are train enthusiasts from Germany, they decided to construct this Austrian railway line.

The combination of highly detailed weathered locomotives and trains with this tailor-made high quality photo background and the amazingly designed landscape is truly spectacular. It is a little work of art and a masterpiece of railway modelling. On the layout, various narrow-gauge trains commute from the fiddle yard on the left to the fiddle yard on the right. There is also a replica of the “Tischlerhäusl” railway station, which in reality is located near Zell am See, Austria. Furthermore, there are a factory, a large sawmill and an abandoned gravel mill.
