Italian railway modelling

Anyone here interested in Italian railways? Just came back from Liguria and my interest has been rekindled :) All sorts of traffic passed through Lavanga station, from Austrian and Swiss inter-modal trains to the night trains on their way to Sicily and the rest of southern Italy. Here's a couple of videos to give yous an idea of what kind of traffic passes though :)

Hi I have a passing interest in Italian railways having spent summer holidays in Umbria for the past 12 years.We have travelled quite a bit by train especially in the early years when we would take the train from Rome to Perugia.A journey of 2 3/4 hours.(These days I drive.) We have also travalled locally to Assisi and Foligno.

I have taken some photos and video over the years and will post them anon.I have also collected some Italian outline models whilst there.

Hi Rich

Here are the pics of the Italian models I have collected so far.The coaches are basic Lima/Hobbyline.3 of the Locos are also Lima.The last 2 are a step up.The first of those 2 is a Roco Class E444 and the second is a Class 445 diesel,this is made by a firm called OS Kar which I hadn't heard of until I bought this.It really is a delightful model.

The Lima diesel is a model of the same class but isn't a patch on the OS KAR version.The latter was 3 times the the price though!

There is a feature in this months Continental Modeller on an Italian layout.They are not that common in the press so it may be worth having a look.
