Northwest Shortline was showing what I consider to be the first really practical HO-scale Battery-Powered wireless DCC system at the National Train Show in Sacramento, CA last week. One of the keys to the system is the Stanton Power Trucks (previously known as the PDT power truck). NWSL is coming out with a 6 wheel truck version of the Stanton drive this fall, which when combined with the Battery Powered Wireless DCC throttle system, makes for one of the first really practical commercial battery powered DCC systems. The system shown above is for an Interurban car, and is built to leave the windows area with a clear view so the car has no obvious mechanism obscuring the view. NWSL said you can just power yard tracks and passing sidings, and otherwise leave all the complex trackwork dead.
So far we have recent posts from NWSL, TAM and Railflyer that I have seen plus this prototype. In this age of video game consoles and iPads, it’s easy to forget there was a time when miniature trains were at the top of every kid’s holiday wish list.
In the late 1990s, twin brothers Frederik and Gerrit Braun of Germany decided to sell their successful nightclub, unload their hit record label, and go into model trains. Broken into eight sections inspired by real-world locations like Germany, Scandinavia, Switzerland, and America, as well as a fictional town called Knuffingen, this “miniature wonderland” features over 215,000 model people engaged in every activity imaginable—from everyday jobs to picnicking in the park to committing crimes and, yes, even tiny little scale-model sexcapades. In addition to trains, there are 250 computer-controlled vehicles that scoot around the streets, including fire trucks dispatched on a regular basis to handle miniature emergencies.
The Brothers Braun have plans to add new areas of Wunderland through 2020, including new sections modeled after France, Italy, England, and parts of Africa.
When enthusiasts set out to create a large model railway, they choose a theme or a specific time period they want to reflect in the model.
Although he never had a model train as a kid, Stewart got the rail bug early in life after growing up close to a British Rail train yard.
Only a few people have actually seen Three Rivers City in person, though Stewart has welcomed Model Railroader magazine into his home for photos and interviews.
Since 1967, Fine Scale Miniatures (FSM) in Peabody, Massachusetts has been known for its high-quality model railway structure kits, like train depots, coal companies, and a watchworks factory.


The layout of the F&SM is constantly changing—Sellios works on the model three months out of the year, and spends the rest of his time developing new kits. In 1941, Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry unveiled a 2940 square-foot model train with over 1000 feet of track.
Although the old model train had been shut down and dismantled, there was a new and improved line waiting at the station. With 34 trains running simultaneously on 17 tracks, across a 3500 square foot diorama, there’s no shortage of railroading excitement for visitors.
A nondescript, two-story building at a public park in Walnut Creek, California, is the headquarters of the ominously named Diablo Valley Lines (DVL), one of the largest model railroads in the United States.
Because the line has been operating for so long, the controls are a bit archaic when compared to a modern, computer-controlled system. Please allow up to 72 hours for a reply, but we are generally faster, particularly during business hours.
The Stanton Power Trucks are DCC ready, coming with black, red, gray, and orange leads all set to wire to a decoder. This system will also fit inside an HO diesel loco hood (with room to spare) if you use the Stanton trucks to power the loco. The NWSL battery system automatically recharges the battery from the track power, so they recommend you simply power the simple trackwork where equipment typically just sits when not running. MRH will be following the developments of this system as it comes to market and will be keeping you informed on how it works. Everyone thought they were nuts—but the brothers were able to secure a loan for 2 million German marks, which they used to lease part of an empty, three-story warehouse in Hamburg, and start building their dream, called Miniatur Wunderland. While many figures stand frozen in time, about 200 animated scenarios can be started at the push of a button by any of the one million annual visitors to this very popular tourist destination.
Visitors will also find ships floating in a model sea that contains nearly 8,000 gallons of water, and marvel as 40 airplanes take off and land while miniature ground crews scoot around the 1,600 square foot, €3.5 million Knuffingen International Airport.
One wealthy creator chose to create his Grand Street and Three Rivers Railroad in a fictional post-World War II city inspired by Manhattan and Chicago, which he calls Three Rivers City. He began building models while on tour to help him relax (which he still does today), but he didn’t really take the hobby seriously until 1993. Based on these glimpses, some in the model railroading community are placing his modeling skills as among the best in the history of the hobby. As a way to showcase their products, owner George Sellios began construction of a massive 1600 square foot diorama in 1985 that has since become one of the most famous model railroads in the world.


Sellios is known as one of the masters of model railroading, and it’s no surprise when you see the work done to bring the F&SM to life. The train featured the Santa Fe Railway, which financed the project, and showed how rail was being used across the country as freight and passenger trains traveled in a mock journey from Chicago to Los Angeles.
In November 2002, after receiving $3.5 million in donations, and employing more than 40 artists and modelers for more than a year, The Great Train Story exhibit was opened to the public. The main attraction, though, is three trains that run from Chicago to Seattle—a 2,206-mile journey covered in 1,425 feet of miniature tracks that feature plenty of twists, turns, and real-world iconic buildings and landscapes that a traveler would see along the way.
Since 1974, the members of the Walnut Creek Model Railroad Society have been working countless hours on their impressive 1900 square foot layout, with about 4300 feet of track laid by hand using 175,000 toothpick-like ties and railroad spikes the size of staples. The DVL is operated by magnetic relay switches from the 1930s that were antiques when they were installed. If you continue without changing your settings, we'll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies on Hornby Magazine website. The pack is finished in the striking livery of East Coast Trains’ ‘Flying Scotsman’ service and the Class 91 now features an 8-pin DCC decoder socket. The system includes a wireless DCC throttle (not shown) and so there's also a receiver board for the system, along with a DCC decoder of your choice (this model shows an NCE D13SRJ decoder).
There should also be plenty of room for sound speakers if you want to add sound to your loco. With some operators running two or more trains simultaneously where they have sufficient clear track. Thanks to a sophisticated light show, a day only lasts 15 minutes in Wunderland, so visitors won’t have to wait long before they get a chance to see some of the 335,000 LED lights that bring the world to life after dark. That was when he decided to set aside a room in his new Beverly Hills mansion specifically for a large model railroad. There are 192 custom-built structures, including scale representations of the Space Needle and the Willis (Sears) Tower, as well as nearly 1500 miniature people, and over 1000 model vehicles.
The relays, originally used to route telephone calls, are hooked up to miles of electrical wires that snake under the layout, and are still capable of controlling up to 10 trains simultaneously, with the help of 25 Society members, during the club’s monthly public exhibitions.
