Model railway


Rolf has built an N-size miniature railway in the stable part of the old stone barn. The N-size is 1:160 scale and is smaller than the so-called “Märklin”, usually known in Finland, which is 1:78 scale. The table level on which the miniature railway is built measures 19 m2, with about 170 m of track. The rolling stock consists of about 80 locomotives and about 300 wagons. These products are from different manufacturers. The miniature railway is not a modern digital version, but due to the long collection period (about 60 years), they are controlled in the old fashioned way via a control centre with about 1,5 km of wires. The landscaping is a fantasy version, with a castle here and there from different countries, and other handicrafts using natural materials.

The name of the miniature railway PPPR comes from the fact that when the name of the property is Parrenparoni, then of course the railway is the ParrenParoni Miniature Railway.
